    [​IMG] Metal Slug 7 Language Selector
    Language Patch for Metal Slug 7 made by Squire
    [​IMG]
    Squire has released a language selector for NDS #2466 Metal Slug 7 (Japan - Xenophobia).
    Basically, you just patch the language selector to the Metal Slug 7 ROM and you'll be able to change the language.
    You'll need bspatch (download here) or a similar program to do so.
    I've written a quick guide for doing so below (inside the thread). On-site download below.

    What you'll need:
    - Un-modified Metal Slug 7 ROM (GBAtemp does not have any illegal files such as NDS ROMs!)
    - Squire's Metal Slug 7 Language Selector (Download from GBAtemp here
    - bspatch (download here) or similar program. In the guide, I'll use bspatch.

    Instructions:
    1. Put 'sq-ms7p.bdf' (the patch) and the Metal Slug 7 ROM into the same folder that you unzipped the bspatch files into.
    2. Click on the CMD shortcut.
    3. Type the following: bspatch 'xpa-ms7.nds patched.nds sq-ms7p.bdf' (without quotes). Then press enter.

    Note that you should have your DS' main setting set to English.
    When you load up the game, it should let you select the language you want to use.
    Have fun! [​IMG]

    once you select the english option at the beginning of the rom, will it stay like that? will the menu at the beginning disappear? or do we always have to choose the english option everytime we launch the game?

    hmm, not sure but It doesnt really matter.. As long as it is mostly in English, Im happy.. You might just need to wait for a (U) or (E) release.. [​IMG]

    On R4, think to update it to 1.18 guys or you'll have the message "Save data could not be loaded..." [​IMG]

    Thanks for this patch.

    it isn't a language selector.
    it's a region selector.

    in the original rom the region switch is locked to japanese, and only the devs can change that.
    but this adds a menu on boot that let's you set the region switch to something else.
    that means with this patch your (J) rom suddenly became a (JAP)(US)(EU m5) rom.

    the translation is 100% official and 100% complete.
    but you do have to select the region every time you start the game.

    There must be a way we can patch/hex the original ROM to do the same thing permanently then. Anyone got any ideas?

    (this might be better in the hacking forum)

    I don't get it.. When I press enter in the CMD mode. My pc try's to open the file, and doesn't know which program to use. So it asks me which program it should be opened with..

    Help?

    Are you sure you follow the Instructions in the right way?

    Instructions:
    1. Put 'sq-ms7p.bdf' (the patch) and the Metal Slug 7 ROM into the same folder that you unzipped the bspatch files into.
    2. Click on the CMD shortcut.
    3. Type the following: bspatch 'xpa-ms7.nds patched.nds sq-ms7p.bdf' (without quotes). Then press enter.

    bspatch [original rom] [patched rom] [patch name]

    Isn't that what email or IRC is for? You should be able to ask for a rom in such ways if you know who to ask, but I won't go into detail. And not me! The answer is no.

    And of course... before any one asks:


    bspatch is included with OSX. So, yes.. Mac users can use this patch.
