    So I've started my announced translation project. More about this come.
    But right now I've some issues with both no$gba and my flashcard and the 8mb save file. So I think I'll start this work by setting a lower size for backup and embedd all songs in the roms.
    So If you have downloaded songs (I'm still waiting for my legit card to come by the mail), you can send me your save or just the song files (i think you use some .bdx naming scheme, the internal file format is called Gak since first one). It will help me a lot.
    Also, the gak format has not changed much, just the touch part was removed. So the good news is my tools are still working, and now I'll make an editor [​IMG]

    Progress :
    07/04 : I've found how to expand the base playlist and how to convert songs from saves files to the game file format (it was just a matter of decoding a LZ77 part). Apparently there's enough memory for 245 songs at the same time, so I can put all the songs of the three save files in one big rom, yay.
    07/03 : translation has started, of course everything is done with proper tool and scripts which allow easy editing and produces dps patches (understand by this that this is not an hex editing)

    Btw if someone knows how to get past this screen with NO$GBA I'm interested [​IMG]

    this one was done in ideas (but there's not a nice debugger...)

    You're a beautiful man, Deufeufeu.

    I like your idea about using a smaller save type. I'll be very amused if you get this game working on the R4 before the R4 team does.

    It's a bit off topic, but I don't think it can be made to work onto the acekard RPG without some tricky rewriting, the RPG uses an onboard 2mb sram, even in this sram some part is reserved for the loader, so the maximum size of a game save is 1mb. It would be really hard to remove this limitation, I guess ak2 has more sram or uses a save-directly-to-sd approach.

    So... If everyone was to download 100 songs with their legitimate games and send the saves to you, we could theoretically get every single song?

    It's too bad I can't extract save files from legit games. xD

    Does this mean you will put all the DLC songs on the ROM? Shweet.

    anyway, i don't know who to get past that in no$gba (maybe mess with the settings?), but if you try iDeaS, it can get past that.
