    so I just got a japanese dsi, it has an r4i and all the games that I tried are on english language. But I have a problem on 1 game, Megaman ZX, the game was in english version, but each time I tried to boot it , it turns to japanese. How can I change it to english? :D

    I have the same problem using a DSTwo on a Japanese DSi. There may not be a solution.

    I also spent forever trying to get my modded Japanese Wii to play Star Fox in English, and eventually failed! :(

    doesn't the japanese console has a language menu which you can choose english?
    did you also tried the european version of the rom?

    DSi let you change the console language? some game read by the console language (sonic for example, ou can get the japanese game to have nice dub and play in english XD)
    else you will need a homebrew to load the game in the desired language :x


    use gecko loader or another, you can choose the language you want the game to boot...
    (if it's the ST adventures GC, I have the japanese disc and my englsh wii played it in english XD I tried to boot in japanese for curiosity but don't worked , but was a long time XD)


    oooor hack the game(DS or wii/gc ) and swap the language folder/files :v /this just came me now lol/

    A DS will let you choose the language, but a DSi will not. Or at least a Japanese one won't.

    I tried Gecko, but it didn't work. :(

    Japanese DSi (and 3DS) went so far as to remove the language setting menu itself. Leaving awkward blank space where it would be.
    Certain games that detect the system's mode, will load and display ONLY Japanese text.

    Expect these games to be affected in some way:
    Feel the Magic XY XX
    Lost in Blue 2
    Sonic Colors
    Sonic Rush
    Sonic Rush Adventure
    The Rub Rabbits
    True Swing Golf
    Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007
    Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2008
    Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2009
    Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2010
    Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011
    Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: Spirit Caller

    I just checked this out in desmume, by the way.

    EURO Megaman ZX and Megaman ZX Advent both use Japanese.
    USA doesn't!

    Edit: Tried the other game.

    actually north korea. please send help
    On R4is you can force the language that games use when loading.
    Press Y while hovering over a game, then go to settings, then the features page, and change the language from default to whatever language you want the game to load in.

    I know the problem has already been solved, but I think this may help other people who stumble across this thread.

    It's cool. Often extra languages make EUR games a better choice on the DS, but yeah this is one situation it doesn't.
