Yeah, I'd love to have an option to switch between Mandarin and Cantonese, and Simplified and Traditional. Mostly because I'm supposed to be native in Canto.

This looks really well made, so I'll definitely give it a try, and possibly learn some more Chinese in the process.

I've been learning Chinese for about a year now, and I've been looking for a nds homebrew, app, or real game which allows u to draw characters and tell u their pronunciation as well as their meaning...can u do that with this game or is there some nds app that allows u to do that? I really don't want to spend $400 on an electronic dictionary.

Hi,

I am the developer of this application and want to respond to some of your questions. First Chinese Touch is technically not restricted to simplified characters and mandarin pronunciation. Also it was created to meet my own requirements for PRC standard Chinese in first place, I know of one or two users who use it with traditional characters or even for Japanese language in some way and I am personally thinking about trying to use the code base for totally different languages like Spanish or Arabic some day as a kind of experiment. The supported language is more a question of available dictionaries and lesson files. Currently there is an introductory course for simplified Chinese from Wikibooks included within the release archive. As everything is stored in UTF8-encoded plain text files, you may modify those to feature traditional characters and different pronunciations on your own. I would gladly include your modified versions in later releases or provide them as add-on packages at least. I already converted a couple of dictionaries, including traditional versions, that you can download from the projects download page at: http://code.google.com/p/chinese-touch/downloads/list
If you know free offline dictionaries you would like to use in Chinese Touch and whose license statements allow republishing of converted/optimized versions, I could try to add those to the list.

Godreborn asked for handwriting recognition of Chinese characters. Sadly this is currently not implemented and won't be in the near future as I consider this a rather hard task. If you have some knowledge or at least ideas on how to implement this or other missing features, feel invited to join hacking on this little project.

Pretty awesome, going to check this out. Was teaching myself to speak and understand other speaking Chinese a few years ago but could never find a good way to learn to write it so gave up a little. Hopefully this helps and will show my Chinese friends to see if they can understand my writing in a month or so...haha

    oh dear. making codes for nes is kinda stressful. i'm trying to think of cool ideas that haven't been thought of before. it's hard to be original, and i don't wanna make codes that already exist!
  • GameGenieLabs @ GameGenieLabs:
    I may make a post asking for code ideas, and hopefully that would make others happy :)

    Anywho, I've been using my modded Wii to play a few games here and there, and finally installed a custom Wii theme thanks to Larsenv helping me in a call (I have a family edition, and I don't wanna brick the nand since I can't restore it) Went with the basic "Black" Theme, since I'm a huge fan of dark themes, and it's less of an eyesore at night

    Larsen also helped me with my Dazzle setup, since the drivers for my model weren't online. I also helped dump that DVD with it, since I had a DVD drive.
