    Had zero hope that this project was alive when I clicked on this topic. I remember they thought they would have the patch done at christmas, I wonder what year that was... perhaps 2014..?

    Nice to see that's it's actually active again, I hope you have the passion/grit/whatever needed to see this through.

    Patch has been tested and working.
    I found about 1000 lines of missed translation not supplied Kirameki the first time
    They are currently translating the remainder for me.
    I just figured out the + menu text and character bios, that were stored in Wii memory, and the home button menu was successfully switched to english in this fashion as well.
    https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=24810

    I currently have no bugs or glitches.
    When I insert the remaining translation, I will post a patch for testing.
    Thank you for your interest.

    Awesome! Always wanted to play it since I saw it in Magazines and at E3. I'll have to have my buddy look at it and see if he can help.

    I had some free time, took a look at Giftpia.
    Here is some info if your friend is interested.
    https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=24878.msg343142#msg343142


    If I find anything else out, I will post info there, but probably won't get too into it until Captain Rainbow is complete. (Or at least being tested)

    Captain Rainbow is awaiting 1000 lines of missing translation, and is being compleated as we speak. The current patch is located here.
    https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BwemMlNPg_8aZ1YxNU0xYzF0amM

    Giftpia I have been sucessful in editing text, and moving text blocks to allow more characters. Just have to get a list of text pointers for re-insertion.
    I was trying to see if I could get it from this project from 2015,
    https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/giftpia-translation-project-dustin-otwell
    Who states the translation was in spreadsheet and text pointers were recorded, but never got an answer.

    So that project may take a little longer.

    Not sure what your issue is. I tried the download on a couple PCs and it works. But here is a ZIP file on a file hosting site. Hope it works for you.
