    well you need something like xdelta patcher to patch the rom's yourself.

    like how you would patch a rom to get translation, you do the same with Anti privacy aka AP.

    I can't find the AP Patch for the english fantranslation of Gyakuten Kenji 2. I looked in the entire OneDrive folder.

    Try patching it with the AP patch first, then patch the AP-patched ROM with the english patch.

    I also can't find the AP Patch for the original rom, so that's a problem.

    N-no it isn't. Searching for "Gyakuten Kenji" yields no results.

    It yielded no results, because you have not scrolled down. Scoll down 'til you see "5532 - Gyakuten Kenji 2 (Japan)".
    If you still do not see it, here's a direct link to the patch.

    It ends for me at 4551. Thanks for the direct link, though.

    I tried doing what you said. xdelta doesn't let me apply the translation to the ap-patched rom, but I found this on the thread of the fan translation:
    Code:
    0x00004640
    
     
    00 00 9F E5 1E FF 2F E1 CF B3 00 00 00 00 9F E5
    1E FF 2F E1 77 B1 00 00 07 40 2D E9 1C 00 9F E5
    1C 10 9F E5 00 20 91 E5 02 00 50 E1 14 00 9F 05
    00 00 81 05 0C 00 80 02 3C 00 81 05 07 80 BD E8
    F0 32 0F 02 D4 1B 0F 02 40 27 00 02
     
    0x000049F8
    16 FF FF EA
    The person who posted it said it was an AP patch. How do I apply it to the translated rom?

    The Black 2/White 2 scene releases you find are actually incorrectly dumped, they're missing the DSi section so the hash won't match.

    Use a hex-editor, and go to the first mentioned location, and copy and paste the bytes to the location.
    Do the same for the next location and bytes.

    This is extremely embarassing, but I can't for the love of god hex edit. I'm using HxD. Is the column on the left side that is title "Offset (h)" the location? Also, if it IS the location, when I go to 00004640, do I just paste the bytes there at the start of the line, or do I select a part that's equally as big and then replace it to not change the file size? I also can't find 000049F8. (I'm so sorry for wasting your time but I really don't know how this works..)

    In case it's unclear still:
    The left column is the location of the first byte in the row. The top row is the offset in that row. Add the two to get the location.

    Good day. I'm working on a portable Python .nds patcher, which supports OpenPatch's patch format. Is there a way to convert patches from xdelta3's VCDIFF to plaintext, to your knowledge?
