    Hmm about the Character names i think they are graphics too or they are using a custom font because i found the name (script_data_596.bin.lz77) but after changing they are not showed in the select screen.
    Anyway the "Story" Text starts in script_data_596.bin.lz77 but it seems that it will need to change the font width too because there is to much space between the characters.

    Another thing is that i found uncompressed text in tutorial.bin (starts at adress 0x3E10)

    I hope this gets finished, Draglade was one of the best NDS games around!

    Augh, I'm so slow, I'm sorry guys. I have a research project for school I'm working on, a midterm coming up and my interest in working on this has been waning this weekend. No doubt I'll keep working on it - it's just that the work entailed is rather redundant. [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'll be uploading a patch in a few seconds.

    Link to version .01 of the patch.
    How to use: Unzip into folder with Draglade 2 and click on patcher.bat.
    WHAT WOW

    What's translated:

    Battle Mode (renamed VS Mode...I think I'll probably name it back) pause menu
    Main Menu, VS Mode submenus and Information submenu headers. I didn't translate one menu because I wasn't sure what it did. It's "Clear Save Data" but since I said I'd have the patch posted by sunday, yeah. :<
    Dragon Sequencer 2.0 main screen is translated.

    Known bugs:
    "Deck Maker" and "Grap 101" in main menu sometimes have random symbols around them. When replacing the tiles...somehow, those appear

    Woah dude, awesome! I'm gonna try it out, even if it's not translated completely heh. I'm probably going to wait for the whole translation to play the game (even if it takes forever [​IMG]), but it's cool to be able to do a battle mode, eh~

    Yeah, I keep trying to substitute names into the game [and writing the names in Unicode], but when I recompile it, Story mode crashes on me after the intro. >_>;



    ffff

    @kosheh Just a suggestion, because i practically know nothing of translating...
    anyways, the suggestion is that maybe you should translate the STORY only if its good, and worth the effort. Of course, its your choice....
    D-don't kill meh for the suggestion D:!!

    That was the bug in the first program. When packing, there was a problem with the pointer table not adding the header size to each pointer, so the pointers pointed to the wrong direction.
    Make sure you select the main file (The file you used to unpack) when packing. Then all of the edited files will rewrite the existing file.
    Also, the new version automatically unpacks the files and decompresses the ones that are lz77 compressed.
    These decompressed file will have a .lz77 as the extension. When repacking, these lz77 files will recompress automatically, so you do not need to worry about the lz77 compressions anymore. Just a little bonus I put in [​IMG]

    Dude take your time, there's no need to rush. Just keep working on it as you like, was it fast or slow. Make sure that you finish that one, but still no need to rush, take your time [​IMG]

    Augh. D:

    I compiled one of the compressed files, and uh

    So I just finished translating a couple dozen bullets, and they work fine in battles and everything - versus mode, whatever. I go to Story Mode just to see if everything works fine.



    I go through the door of one of the Grap Stadiums. The game crashes.


    Any chances I make to script_data initially works, but crashes when I enter story mode.
    I think I'm doing this wrong, as now I cannot edit the script no way no how. D:

    um

    well, make sure the file in the same folder's called cvn-dg2.nds once you click it - and make sure everything's in the same folder (xdelta, draglade 2 and patch)

    If that doesn't work, try

    1) changing the batch file, and change the names to your liking - maybe you need to remove the spaces in the filenames? i dunno lol
    2) doing it the old-fashioned way. command-prompt your way into the folder and try "xdelta patch cvn-dg2.nds patch.XD new.nds" or whatever. For some reason i can't remember the command off the top of my head

    All you have to do is change your rom filename to cvn-dg2.nds then start up patcher.bat
    It should generate a patched cvn-dg2 nds file after that. So, if you need to do so, change that file name then transfer it to yer flashcarts.

    Is the the size of the patched rom 64mb or should it be what it is when you trim the original rom.
