Hi everyone!)

Finally, I've made it done)))
I've got 2 'versions' for you to check 'em out:

M3Sakura 1.42 Euro/USA/Russian (EU/US M3DS Real Cards ONLY):
M3Sakura 1.42 Rus (Narod/Yandex Link)

Upd.
If this versiong 'hangs' after selecting Russian language - you should try the original version (may be downloaded on the official Site or on LinFoxDomain)
Here's the mirror:
M3Sakura_1.42_Original
This archive consists of "SYSTEM" folder (no installer inside - for those, who can't run the installer from the original download link [MAC users, for example]
wink.gif
)

M3 iSakuReal v1.4 Rus:
GBAtemp (Same link, version updated)
Rapidshare (Mirror)
Narod/Yandex (Mirror)

__________
UPDATE (07th Jan, 2009)
New skin is added (Thanks to strata8 for 'Vista Skin Source Files v.2' and to Aphexdash for his 'VistaDX' Source files!

)
Default skin is corrected
The translation is corrected
__________

Both of the versions, of course, are ONLY translated by me)))
Both of them have THEIR OWN CREATORS, Whom I thank and respect!)


I've translated only Sakura yet (speaking about M3 iSakuReal). Honestly, I don't know yet either if I'll translate 'iTouch' or when I'll translate 'TouchPod'.
[upd.] 'TouchPod' WON'T be translated, unless the official russian translation is approved/made by the M3 Sakura Team. (The encoding issue. Text can be translated, but the console doesn't show it correctly) [/upd.]

BASED ON:
M3 Sakura v1.12+1 for US/EUR M3 Real FULL ENGLISH

Known issues:

1. In mp3-player the "modes" aren't translated (In Video player, they ARE translated though)
(Random, Repeat, AllRepeat)
[upd.] They WON'T be translated, unless the official russian translation is approved/made by the M3 Sakura Team. (The encoding issue. Text is very easily translated, but the console doesn't show it correctly) [/upd.]

2. NDS & GBA Settings\Options AREN'T TRANSLATED,
[upd.] They WON'T be translated, unless the official russian translation is approved/made by the M3 Sakura Team. (The encoding issue. Text is translated already, but the console doesn't show it correctly) [/upd.]

AFAIK, these issues are out of date already

did you modify the messages.932 file?
if you did it's best to check if the filesize is the same.
if the difference in filesize is too big you might get trouble loading homebrew games that require DLDI
if you need to make it bigger you can just add a few spaces/enters at the end.

Excellent, I was wondering about this recently

That looks really good, are you done with this? If you're done, I'll add them to the FAQ. If you're still working on them, I'll wait until you say it's OK to post them.

I can't read Russian, but awesome work!

Yes, I did modify the messages.932 file =)
Really? This file affects loading homebrew?
ouch

My modified file is 9,66 Kbytes..
And I actually don't know what to cut out from there to make the file smaller

Thanks, mate!)
Well, I can't say it's the fully final version, cause as you can see, the messages.932 file is too big
and by the way the *.ext files aren't translated yet..

looks like the difference is less than 1KB, so i don't think that's going to be a problem.

that file has nothing to do with homebrew loading, but there appears to be a small reading bug in m3sakura that causes it to misread some files if other files have an unexpected size.
older versions of m3sakura had a similar problem with the wallpaper file(when you load a custom .jpg wallpaper m3sakura converts it into a different filetype and puts it in the system folder, which could also cause problems with homebrew loading)

Wow!
Now I see)
Thanks for an explanation ;-)
By the way, wanted to ask 1 question:
Does anyone know how to name the image files with play modes /I mean the images with text on them/ ([repeat], [repeat all], [random]) for the MP3 player in sakura
And where to place their names in the file 'MakeSkin.lst'???
(The files, that I modifyed, replaced only the Video player images)

[upd.]Got already the answer) (Thanks again to Toni Plutonij) The absence of translation is explained by the fact that THIS IS A POP-UP text, not the skin image, so, I'll have to look for this text through HexEditor in some Sakura file (*.ext, I guess))))[/upd.][/b]
[upd.2]I've found it: menu.jp - there are some texts that are to be translated (mp3 play-modes are there too))[/upd.2]

[upd.3]Unfortunately, Toni Plutonij was right, M3Sakura doesn't understand cyrillic symbols in ANSI (this is the encoding of menu.jp) =( [/upd.3]

Just a few hours before Moonlight left the scene, He added some files to his beta 5 release - these were the files, connected with Cyrillic encoding.

I thank him again for all his work (especially for answering my request about the encoding!)!!!

and by the way, who knows, maybe I'll be able to use those files (or 1 file) in further Sakura translation

Upd.I'll REALLY use 1 file in new Sakura version as soon as it's released (either officially or not)
