    What I will try to "translate"*:
    • Main Menu -- Done!
    • Game Menu -- Done!
    • Game Types Screen -- Done!
    • New Game Prompts -- Done!
    • Options Screen -- Done!
    • Map Editor Menu -- Done!
    • Map Editor Popup -- Done!
    • Dojo Menu -- Done!
    • Wireless Menu -- Done!
    • Wireless Popups -- Cannot seem to find.
    • Pause Menu -- Done!
    • Level Complete Menu -- Done!
    • Game Over Menu -- Done!
    • (A) (OK)/(B) (Back) Buttons -- Done! ...I think (Alternate/Inverted copies and an "X" button found)
    What I most likely will not do:
    • Walls 'o Text
    • Level Select (nothing to really translate)
    • Save Progress Screen (nothing to translate but "Lode Runner" and "Save Data")
    • LodeRunner Dojo Tutorials (they are 'watch then do')
    *NOTE: I do not speak nor read Japanese.
    By "translate" I mean 'edit the graphics replacing the Japanese words with English words from the NTSC-UK translation'.

    There was a loderunner for the DS? All this time I've been using a homebrew of the original.

    v1.0 (my next release) will be out as soon as I can find the Pause Menu file, since I can knock out a Menu screen in about 15 minutes now.

    I didn't intend to 'translate' them, but I found the A and B button icons:
    [​IMG] (enlarged 200%)

    Along with that, I found inverted/alternate color buttons but I cannot find them ingame.
    If you have seen them (possibly a highlight?), could you please tell me where you found them and/or send me a Save file if it's at a certain point?
    I have DeSmuME and No$GBA and can convert if you played on a flashcart, so any file should be fine.

    Also, I have found an X button. If you can find ANY version of this could you please tell me where you found them and/or send me a Save file if it's at a certain point?

    Additionally, if you can read Japanese could you tell me what it says?

    The X means cancel or delete.. It's in kanji.

    v0.2 works great (v0.1 didn't result in a proper ROM)
    Thanks a lot for investing your time and effort into this little gem. [​IMG]

    Thanks [​IMG]

    I'd still like to find it ingame so I can label it properly, so if anyone comes across it please let me know!



    Got the Pause Menu 'translated' this morning, which means v1.0 will be out soon.
    I also found some extra lines in the file... but I can't find them ingame. Done.

    v1.0 is up, and I'll be taking a break from this for a day or two.
    Up next is the Dojo Menu and the other half of the Pause Menu that xdarkx translated.

    I think the rest is minor, so it may be another week or so before a new version is out.
    If you have any specific screens you would like translated that are not already listed in the "may" and "will not" translate sections feel free to request them (attach an image AND instructions on how to get to that screen if not VERY obvious).


    Thank you very much. [​IMG]

    No, thank you for doing this.

    And like I said, take your time with this project. It'll be worth the wait in the end.

    Pretty sure it's local.
    I messed around with it and couldn't find any WiFi settings or online options.

    I changed it to read "Wireless" since I think Wireless = local / WiFi = online cuts confusion.
