    For those who don't know what the heck this is about...

    Main thread

    A DS game...

    UPDATE: The save with this patch does not work on the official Englsih Games which has recently been released.

    My apologies to those who bear any discomfort with this

    I need someone to hack the font, its too big to fit on the screen, however it is very understandable. [​IMG]

    Edit: I have checked all text during my play-through no japanese text appear ever, except maybe the ending credits.

    Screenies

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Here's the English patch:
    NOTE: The in-game credits crashes the game
    Please do not download this patch any longer.
    I will be posting an update patch in a while
    please reserve a copy of the "original" rom for patching
    Please do not continue the game when you reach the crystal stage, named "Libra of something", i forgot

    ElebitsEnglishPatch *FIXED?*(I'm leaving the credits untouched, and hoping to fix the crash)
    An Early Merry Christmas from me [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Edit: Here is the German Patch
    NOTE: I did not make this, and would gladly give the hacker the proper commendation, please post here

    Rapidshare

    I repeat, i did not make the german patch [​IMG]
    The german hack is where i based my hack, meaning it came before the english hack

    It needs some work to play it in english... But you cannot just choose any language.

    If you're not that hyped, then you can wait for the official release.

    What I'm saying is that the scripts for other languages are included "IN" the rom, perhaps the topic title may have been misleading.

    However, if someone would pick, for example, the english script and place it on the kanji part,

    and then picked the german script and placed it in the hiragana part,

    then you now have language options with japanese voice -overs

    This will only come in handy for those who live in europe, because their release date is in Q4

    This is all conceptual at the moment, I i gotta run to school like a friggin sissy. [​IMG] I'm LATE

    I've made some progress, look on the first post

    Now i'm looking into those overlay files to see if they'll be any help to the script

    Triple POST!!!

    This is my first successful rom hack [​IMG]

    Its easy to convert the script to other languages, just post here for help

    Thanks, they are fat so they don't fit the screen, what do i need to do to inject them to the rom and the patch?

    @ tyuno123
    yes it will patch all into english, excluding the starting menu, the voice-acting & i'm not sure if the wifi setup is in english and recently the credits

    see top post for screenies

    Thanks dude, Well done!
    I was playing around with the rom myself after seeing your post, but i don't know anything about hacking the pointers, and such so i was at a dead end.

    Yes, the released date was supposed to be Jan 06 2008, but went and became delayed

    I'm trying my luck on hacking it to european languages, but have been unsuccessful as of yet

    EDIT: Ooopsi, my bad, 'twas supposed to be dated Jan 06 2009

    awesome I played this in japanese when it came out but had no idea what to do so I ended up getting stuck but thanks to your patch I can finally get through with it.

    Just one more question,does it patch the whole game all the way to the end ?

    Great job on your first patch [​IMG]

    So this FULLY translates EVERYTHING, but the font is sometimes too big and can't be read properly, right?

    Which files did you change to get the english texts?
    I can only find these few files, which seem to be important for the language:

    ...\data\credit\eu.pac
    ...\data\credit\us.pac
    ...\data\credit\jp.pac

    ...\data\UI\button\de.pac
    ...\data\UI\button\en.pac
    ...\data\UI\button\es.pac
    ...\data\UI\button\fr.pac
    ...\data\UI\button\it.pac
    ...\data\UI\button\jh.pac
    ...\data\UI\button\jk.pac
    ...\data\UI\button\us.pac

    ...\data\UI\nameplate\de.pac
    ...\data\UI\nameplate\en.pac
    ...\data\UI\nameplate\es.pac
    ...\data\UI\nameplate\fr.pac
    ...\data\UI\nameplate\it.pac
    ...\data\UI\nameplate\jh.pac
    ...\data\UI\nameplate\jk.pac
    ...\data\UI\nameplate\us.pac

    or did you change anything IN the files ??

    im only interested in this because I wanted to play with the german scripts [​IMG]


    EDIT:

    oh i forgot the files in the chardemo folders, these are the important ones right ?

    for example

    ...\data\charademo\w1\kmsg_jh.pac
    ...\data\charademo\w2\kmsg_jh.pac
    ...

    ?
