    Simple answer: there is currently nothing to do this, some algorithms were updated so all tools based on thenewpoketext stopped working.

    Most people are going to assume, considering the timing of your posting, that you're talking about the black/white games.

    Would you like your thread title to reflect that you're referring to Pokemon Platinum so that you might get better answers?

    i tried newpoketext on pokemon black patched game, and there is no msg folder where u place the 7 file in? So because of this no one was able to start editing the text? Or is there a way around this?

    Can we create a definitive thread for BW translation updates, as opposed to random, n00b-inspired question threads?

    Even if the news is "THERE IS NO NEWS", it would make it easier to comprehend the status of patching...

    He was originally talking about B/W, says so in his first post.

    can people edit text using hex editors?
    But you would then have to find the hex conversion of the japanese word your looking for right?

    Right. Precisely why I pointed him at the black/white translation thread.

    And then in his second post he talks about Pokemon Platinum. [​IMG]

    If this is just another "I wanna play Black and White in English" thread, it's getting closed.
