    There is a post of a dragon quest vi translation on ds-scene.
    Has anybody tried it yet?

    Here is the link to the post:

    http://www.ds-scene.net/?s=viewtopic&nid=9046&p=4#38

    The translation-file is currently found only on a torrent site. I am not sure, if i should download it or not because the torrent file has no comments and i do not want to download a virus.

    Would be a nice not to have to wait until February.

    UPDATE:

    Played it for a few minutes and it works so far. (No virus and game is in english)

    If the file is an NDS file, then it's most likely not a virus.
    There are two NDS brickers, but they're small files -- smaller than a game.

    If you're worried about virus', get a virus scanner.
    Check the bottom of this for AV rankings, you'll want one that ranked "Advanced+".

    download

    http://filetrip.net/f6934-xdelta-UI.html

    rename the patch from .patch to .xdelta

    run xdeltaUI, put the file-path of the rom and the patch in the corresponding fields
    and create and output file (ie dq6.nds)

    press "patch" and enjoy the game

    I wonder if he just ported over the SNES translation where applicable... [​IMG]

    But this is cool news, I didn't hear of it anywhere but here. Maybe this should be spread around a little? I mean, katakana is easy enough to read if you know any English at all, but I'm sure even that is daunting enough to scare some people away from an otherwise awesome game.

    Most games use the exact same save file across regions. You should be fine.

    Hello, gentle readers.

    I've seen some mob-mentality and misinformation in the past week, and normally I wouldn't care, but it seems to be confusing people. I'll leave a few remarks about this translation patch here in this thread only.
    [*]I find it hilarious that I've been accused of plagiarizing my own translation. [​IMG] Yes, it is all my translation since the time I first started it in February as a personal challenge. This patch was worked on by two people, myself (translation) and a friend (hacker). Anything else you read is hearsay and misinformation.[*]Don't assume the contents of the translation if you haven't played it. There are 0 main script lines, ~80 party chat lines, and ~13 system text lines missing. What I mean by "certain point" is that I haven't gone over it in a long time with my own eyes, but the game is fully playable to the very end. [*]A critic playtested the patch in a far worse condition a month or so ago, and very much enjoyed the translation, but I am a bit embarrassed to have released it to that person at that point. [​IMG] [*]North American/European players may be confused by certain nuances, tropes, and personalities in the DS version of Dragon Quest VI: ???? (maboroshi no daichi). The translation should encourage discussion and broader understanding of the content of the Japanese DS game. It is not meant as a replacement for Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation.[*]Since I'm now posting [​IMG] I guess I'll try to answer questions people have about words, names, etc... when I have time. On the other hand, maybe not.
