    I'd be surprised if this doesn't come out in English.

    Syndicate perhaps Punx?

    None the less is this another childhood memory ruined or a nice update?

    Good news guys. I checked the rom and it contains english text as well. Not everything gets translated, but enough to make this 100% playable it appears [​IMG]

    I did some quick looks and played some tutorial games. The grammar is alright.. very understandable though. Atleast from what i've played so far.
    No option to change it, you'll have to unpack the rom and change in a text file or do the usual 'copy over english folder to japanese' to get it.

    ok let me explain to you what i learn

    all the forlder are cretaed (all languge) but only japanese and english are translate

    When i try to place the fr folder the in game texte don't appear on if you open a french or other language file there is nothing write in it plus the size of japanese is 83.5 ko (english too) but other folders are 2.52 ko

    so All are created and you can easly make your own translation from the english text (some texte still mising in english folder (option for example are blank ) )

    thanks EA !!!! (yeah rally!!)


    can someone make a link to the dslazy tutorial (for noob) i'm to busy now lol

    Quick tutorial:
    1. Download dslazy
    http://blog.dev-scene.com/ratx/archives/1

    2. Open your populous rom and select 'NDS unpack', wait till it's done.

    3. Go to the folder data/text/ and open the English folder, mark everything and select copy.

    4. Now go back one folder and open the Japanese folder, select paste and select yes to overwrite everything.

    Save the text file and go back to dslazy.

    5. Select 'NDS Packer'
    When it's done, select where to save it and there you go [​IMG]

    EDIT: Didn't notice I used the text file way on the rom I already copied the language folders on [​IMG]
    Will work now.

    Sweetness! Had a feeling there was English in this one, I just hope its a better port than Sim City.

    Would try it but gotta do tempcast in a bit.
