    It'll be out when its finished.

    In taking a different approach to what gisell suggested, there might be another way. Please excuse me if I sound ignorant, as I am not a coder, and have nothing but the utmost respect for those who are. My thought is this, We all know that the J version of ML3 has been patched to work on all flashcards out there. I also know that it is possible to "hack" japanese roms by going in and replacing the text with english. Take Soma bringer for example. I would guess that the reason translation projects take so long is twofold. First, there's the actual process of translating the text into english. Second, you have to find the right point in the code to make the change. Since we now have an english release, it seems like most of the hard work would be done and that someone with the knowledge would just have to "cut and paste" the english text in and problem solved. Again, please excuse me if what i'm suggesting is way off base and / or damn near impossible to do. Just another idea if the patch proves to be impossible to make.

    I'd say Nintendo's found the best way to deter pirates: rather than relying on one good anti-piracy measure that'll get removed quickly, just cram in a whole load of decent anti-piracy checks so it takes several days to crack. Though a working patch may come out any time now, I'm sure many would-be pirates have given up and grabbed the game already. Now that they know this, it'll get worse. Expect any major release from here on out to have plenty of checks. Hopefully the good people working on fixing up a patch for this one will find a way to get around it quicker by then.

    Every site on the internet focused on NDS piracy will implode.

    I'd say you dont know what you are talking about and thats not even the problem, afaik it actually has less checks than the JPN version. Its not that its some amazing hard to crack protection its just that the person made the crack specifically for acekard and anything else it works on is just a bonus. No one else has stepped up to 'port' the crack to other carts even though this being released should provide enough information to do it. Bug the people who do your cart firmwares to fix it as it should be them doing it.

    People will commit suicide if it won't work on R4 in first day.

    A) LoZ will NEVER be as bad as this weekend. Throwing three of the biggest releases of the year, possibly even of all time in the DS's history, into a span of 2-3 days is bad.
    B) Phantom Hourglass wasn't great at all. It had a lot of flaws in it. Making Link run around with his gay little conductor hat and whatever character from Thomas the Tank Engine he's dry humping won't fix those. The train mechanic actually looks like a lot of unnecessary and overall stupid flair. I play Zelda games for Zelda games, not to play Choo Choo. Side note, I don't use the word gay as an insult, it just does make him look like a queen.
    C) It's still a sequel to an underwhelming Zelda game. If they announced Ocarina of Time for the DS then I'm pretty sure this site will be gone for a week.

    Imagine if you will that KH has a very insidious piracy check, a la Chrono Trigger. This will cause a black hole of bitching so massive it will destroy the internets.

    The patch doesn't work for me, I'm using an AceKard 2i, on AKMenu 4.18, and when I try to start the patched ROM it just freezes, giving me white screens.

    Latest CycloDS Firmware (1.55 Final) doesn't get passed the save select screen.
    (This is of course without the AR code or a patch.)

    This happens with any EDGE. The game freezes at a black screen after you save. That's right. After. So if you reset your DS, the save will be there.

    BTW, is there any way to get it working on an EDGE without the black screen after saving?
    Can porting the JP code and using it with the current US code fix the problem?

    Seconded. Adventuring was fun, but the damn ship killed it... And now they want to do the same with Spirit Tracks, just replace ship with train. [​IMG]

    Man I loved Phantom Hourglass, the ship was soooo much better than Wind Waker's ship.
