    I see that there's two F-Zero Climax translations, both projects are paused, but I want to continue the translation, but I need help to do it.

    Translation 1:
    https://www.romhacking.net/translations/1250/

    Translation 2:
    https://github.com/Normmatt/F-Zero-Clim ... ranslation

    The translation is the same from the translation 2 from there:
    http://www.fzerocentral.org/viewtopic.p ... c&start=20

    Credits:
    Normmatt - Hacking
    Clank Hughes - Hacking/GFX
    Guy_Perfect - Hacking
    Heian - Translation

    I need help to translate chapters 48, 49, 50 y 51.

    Also we need to translate the rest of the game, like descriptions of menu, characters and maybe something else, but I don't know how to edit that, maybe @Normmatt or someone who knows romhacking can help.

    I leave there the chapters to translate:

    Chapter 51: http://imgur.com/a/x1XPu

    Just a FYI the clank Hughes translation "crashes" after the first race is completed on real hardware. I've hear others report it does on emus as well...

    I actually meant to look into why last night but never got to it.

    Hey there..I may have the time to be able to help out.
    Do you plan on releasing the rom and credit translators? (just curiosity)

    Regards

    Sorry for the late reply, I wasn't notified and I am suscribed to this post.

    I will give the credit to everyone who helps on the translation, the only problem is to edit the game, I only have the tools for the chapters, but if we have the translation I will preserve it until we can edit everything.

    Also I will release a patch with all the work, this is gonna be all for fans of F-Zero.

    Sadly there's no news to say, because I can't find people to translate from Japanese into English.

    So, has anything happened with Climax since this thread, or is this the most up-to-date as far as translation progress goes? I have limited knowledge of Japanese (about 2 years in college and some self-taught), but with a game like this and some of the context I see here, I think I'd be able to translate the last few of these Chapters so we can all finally play this full game in English.

    That would be awesome! If you send me a private message with the text translated I can put it on the remain chapters.

    Also I would love to translate all the menus, but I need to find help for that, if we get the texts translated it would be really really easy to end this translation, more than search people to edit the rom.

    So um, I actually made this account just to respond here, so I can't send PMs (yet?). Any other way I can keep in contact with you, or is this the best way? Also, menus should be easy to actually translate by comparison. I'd think the hardest stuff would be on the programming/tool side?

    Everything is hard, but I know some people who can help me with the tools, the big problem there was the translation itself, because no one wants to translate from japanese F-Zero.

    I have send you an PM with a discord server, I hope you can get inside and when I awake, I will contact you.

    I just wanted to say that I'm really pleased that someone is trying to take on this project. I love the GBA F-Zero games and it would be just fantastic to finally play Climax in English. Perhaps it would even encourage people to use the track editor too...

    Best of luck, guys. :)

    PS: Have you considered asking around on ROMHacking.net for help?

    Not yet, we are trying to get all the text into english first, then I will search for help to hack the game, also I know some people who can help me with that, so for now it's going to take a while.

    Thanks!

    I just recently got into F-Zero, and was surprised to find that it had a game still only in Japanese, despite being a Nintendo franchise and so nearly complete. I'm looking forward to being able to play it all in English, too! I hope we can work to get it finished for everyone soon!

    I wish I had the talent, skill and/or intelligence to help out in some way. F-Zero on the GBA is my favourite racing series. Such a great trilogy of games. They need some real love out here on the interwebs!

    I can't tell you how happy I'll be the day I can play Climax and actually understand the written words. Good luck guys. :)
