    Now that I've finally finished exams and am on summer break, I'll attempt to finish this.


    As I stated somewhere earlier I think, I'm a newb at ROM hacking, so I'll be spending a fair bit of time learning more first (and re-figuring out the tools). Also, I'd like to translate the evidence and names as well, but I don't have the English translations for the evidence description. If someone could provide me a list of Japanese English evidence descriptions, that'd be AMAZING.


    Hopefully I can release a less buggy version of the first two cases by the end of next week.

    I just came across this thread. Good luck with the hack. I would love to play these games on my Micro. I wish I could help but I haven't a clue how to translate Japanese...

    Why you don't use evidence descriptions from PW DS?

    Since most of the above links are dead, for anyone still interested I have re-uploaded the latest patch by kcaze here:

    Patch 05/06/2011 by kcaze

    Edit:

    I am a newbie and I don't know anything about rom hacking, but I managed to add all the translated evidence graphics by cocomonk22 into the kcaze's rom. I haven't tested it though.

    Patch 05/06/2011 by kcaze with english evidence graphics by cocomonk22 (11/07/2008)

    I would also like to add the rest of the graphics and the title screen, but I don't know how.

    I also plan on trying to add the english voices for "Hold it!", "Objection!" and "Take that!", and I think I've found a way to do so.

    Update:

    - Added the english title screen by cocomonk22
    - Replaced the "Coldkiller Z" graphic with "Coldkiller X" by cocomonk22
    - Replaced the Japanese voices of Mia and Payne with the English ones from NDS

    Patch 003

    Update 2:

    I think I started to figure out a couple of things, so I've tried to replace the Guilty/Not Guilty verdict with the English graphics. The graphic substitution by itself wasn't that hard, but I run into a couple of bigger problems.

    The first problem was that the japanese kanji have very different positioning from the english text:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    After hours of searching Hex values of the coordinates with a hex editor, reading technical information about Gameboy Advance OAM's, trial-and-error tests and a lot of guessing, I finally figured out the addresses of the coordinates, so I managed to re-position the 2 sprites:

    [​IMG]

    I was happy with the result, so I moved on to the "Not Guilty" part, only to find out that my previous change has affected it too! The Japanese kanji were in the new position, and one of the 2 previous sprites was used in inverted colors!

    [​IMG]

    It seems that the rom uses the exact same image and the exact same locations to display both "Guilty" and "Not Guilty" verdicts.

    Images from the original rom:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Does anybody have any idea about how I could change the verdict displaying routine?

    Wow! Great to see this project has been revived!

    Keep it up! I would love to see a 100% English version for the GBA :)

    After countless hours of trying to figure out how to change the Exclamations (Objection!, Hold it!, Take That!), and after hundreds of experiments and manual hex editing bit by bit, I managed to reach this point for the "Take that!" exclamation:

    Patch 005 (see below)

    - Replaced all the exclamation graphics with the English ones! (Objection!, Hold it!, Take that!)

    Edit:

    It seems that when I added "Objection!", I accidentally overwritten a small part of the memory area of "Hold it!", corrupting it. I fixed it in the following patch:

    Patch 005.1

    You're doing some amazing work here. Hope that "Not Guilty" can be made to look nice at some point, but hey, at least it works, and I got plenty of respect for that. :)
