    Well, I know there's already an HGSS translation going on out there, but I decided to make my own. I've been working on this patch for a few weeks now and it's made great progress! You can already play up to Goldenrod and beat Whitney in the most recent patch!

    Newest screens(These are new screens, so this stuff won't be translated in the current beta):

    Beta 4 is out!

    Get it from these links!

    In this patch, most of the story up to where you beat Morty is translated. The National Park and Kimono Girls events are not translated yet.

    Also most of the signs up to Goldenrod have been translated as well.

    How do I patch it?

    1. Open up the provided Xdelta GUI.exe which is supplied for you. To open this, you need Xdelta.exe, which is provided also.

    2. Go to the patch tab.

    3. Go to "Select Patch" and select the patch file which is provided.

    4. Go to "Select Rom" and select your clean, unedited rom dump. The dump that would probably be best to use is the Xenophobia dump of Soul Silver.

    5. Go to "Apply Patch".

    Now it's going to take a while to apply the patch, so don't expect it to finish applying the patch instantly.

    After it's applied, a patched version of your rom should show up in the same folder as the Clean one. This patched rom should be "121 MB" which yes, is smaller than the original rom.

    For HG Find the Xenophobia Dump!

    Please do me a favour when you translate it, and do the types and statuses first, it feels odd to see moves translated and not types.

    Those will be done eventually. I just have to figure out to edit narc graphics. There's even a possibility that I could import the symbols from the English version of Platinum.

    Thank you very much. Also, be wary of freezing; I've tried to play Kazo's patch multiple times, but it seems to freeze a lot on my DSTTi compared to the other other one by R-somethingorother.

    im usually anti-translation of games that are coming out in English, but your work seems very well thought out, and clean.

    Best of Luck [​IMG]

    Just curious, why don't you partner up with Kazo, or even Raqib?
    They have most of the Pokedex/Moves/Abilities/Trainers/Menus taken care of.

    By specializing and focusing, you guys could have a completely translated game within a couple weeks. Just saying.

    Anyhow, regardless, great work.

    Good luck with this. I don't really care about the dialogues but more about the new stuff like Pokemon emotions, phone calls, Buena's password stuff...

    For the simple reason that I would just prefer working alone and things work faster that way for me. I already have the abilities and moves translated and all the other stuff will be translated soon too.

    I might download one of those anti-crash patches though, because for some reason when HGSS crashes, it deletes saves too.
