    Hello everybody,I'm new to this world so i'm asking for your help.
    Translating Tingle 2 is my first ever DS project,and if i'm able to translate japanese,the problem is in all the technical thing.
    I know the basics but i'm unable to locate the text files,i'd greatly appreciate someone's help to dump it.
    Please,i'm begging.

    No what you have to do is use a program called dslazy and from that program dump the rom. (Dump the rom means taking all the files within the rom and extracting it)

    I think the OP is saying he can't locate the text within the folders. There's a bunch of sounds in the folders, so my guess is to check the overlay and graphics. I only skimmed through the files in CT2, but there's a chance the text may be in the graphics. The first folder has files that are LZ Type 11 compressed if you want to look into that. The lib folder seems to have a file that has "fnt", so I assume that's the font. You can try looking at the abbreviated file names to try in that folder and determine what is what, as well. I can't really be sure, but I'll check more thoroughly later.

    Wow, seeing this game translated would be awesome! Loved the first one!
    I know nothing about rom hacking, but when I tried the second one, I do remember telling myself that the font really looked like it was all graphic...

    In any case, good luck! [​IMG]

    People are just really busy. Not to mention, translators/teams will translate what appeals to them. If they try to translate a game that they aren't interested in, it will never get finished.

    If nobody cared, you wouldn't be doing this one, correct? [​IMG]

    Yes you're right,but I thought that with the large Zelda fan-base existing,someone was going to do it.
    I can translate it but the whole technical thing is the real problem [​IMG]

    I know what you mean. I have a friend who has the same problem. She can't find the text in another game. It was a big mess, she's been looking for a week now... Not very pretty, let me tell you.

    I'm very interested to hear how you're getting on with this project. I'd love to be able to play this game with an English translation.

    I don't suppose anyone knows anywhere where I could find just a text translation of the game?
