    wrong section buddy. Go to the NDS section and there should be translation or ROM hacking section in there.

    Mods can you please move this?

    Haha... who remembers that other thread about JAVA, C+ and C++? [​IMG]

    You probably have a less chance of getting flamed if you request a translation... but you'll still get flamed..

    Do you know how a game works?

    Well first, you have to find a direct download of the rom you want to translate, not a torrent, or a rapidshare/megaupload link.

    Then head over to babelfish.altavista.com

    Select translate a website from Japanese to English

    Paste the download link into the box.

    Press translate.

    Once the rom is downloaded it's been translated into English! [​IMG]

    What a nice translation topic. You can totally translate ROMs by pasting the download link into a Translate box.

    Do you like lying or something? Translating a download in babelfish didn't work for me, and yes, it was a direct download link!

    Because opening it in Wordpad shows you the words in the game. then you copy/paste the code into babelfish. VOLIA!

    Stop being jerks, you guys. Pointing him to babelfish is stupid.

    Use the Google translator instead.

    They are joking around with you [​IMG]
    Anyway best place to learn something about it is romhacking.net read the tutorials there even for other older systems (so you can learn the basics very quick and it´s almost the same for every game) and unless you want to translate everything manually it´s very usefull if you can program

    That explains why it didn't work in desmume/no$gba, I'll try the text way.

    Yeah well I've had my fun, lol.

    Seriously, you'll probably want to try devKitPRO, and that's only if you have some coding experience...........ARM9 isn't exactly noob code.
