    Populous was great one the Amiga, I played it for hours. Have the included wi-fi by any chance so you can play against a real opponent, instead of the computer?

    Thanks for that Killermech. Can't wait to try it.

    Any feedback on it yet?

    Cool!!
    If you unpack this rom you can translate this rom to your own language :-)

    Thank you EA!
    I hope more Nintendo DS games will use this method for text, so everyone can edit it [​IMG]

    Umh, anyone knows how to use ndstool to properly unpack and rebuild a NDS ROM? I used to have the command line options somewhere in a text file, but I can't find it anymore. And, like all .NET programms, DSLazy won't work with Linux.

    Good stuff. At least it's fairly understandable. Interesting concept for a sim-type game. Never played those other games mentioned, so this should be a neat one to tinker with.

    Found it! [​IMG]

    How to change Populous DS to (something closely resembling) English language, using Linux, in five easy steps:

    1. Get ndstool (e.g. from DevkitPro -> /devkitARM/bin/) and copy to a new dir together with 6rz-pdj.nds
    2. Unpack ROM with ndstool: ./ndstool -x 6rz-pdj.nds -9 arm9.bin -7 arm7.bin -y9 y9.bin -y7 y7.bin -d data -y overlay -t banner.bin -h header.bin
    3. Remove Japanese language: rm -r data/text/japanese/
    4. Rename English language dir to Japanese: mv data/text/english/ data/text/japanese
    5. Rebuild ROM: ./ndstool -c Populous_DS_JPN_NDS-6rz.nds -9 arm9.bin -7 arm7.bin -y9 y9.bin -y7 y7.bin -d data -y overlay -t banner.bin -h header.bin

    Play Engrish Populous. [​IMG]

    The original didn't actually need any written text, so I'm taking the three-page discussion about languages to be a bad sign... [​IMG] Someone actually comment about the gameplay and prove me wrong? (please)

    "Build Your Own City" as Genre doesn't fit this game fully...

    The correct genre would be "Deity Simulator" [​IMG]

    This game rocks! It combines the best of Populous I + II with nice action scenes.

    The only thing bad about this game is the touch screen controls. Luckily you can play it almost entirely without...

    anyone figure out a simple hex edit to change the language (like with mario @ olympics and some other games)? i prefer to do it this way rather than repacking with dslazy.

    Got a link to that hex-edit?

    EDIT: Found it, don't have any idea what it does, though...
