    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q: Why aren't you doing a story translation?
    A: I feel that I'd be competing with Nintendo, which I do not want. If you would like a story translation, please see Magnius' translation.

    Q: Why aren't you using the NDSTool patching method?
    A: That would require me to include illegal ROM files. It's the same reason why you need both the English and Japanese ROMs for ChemicalGus' the World Ends with You undub patch.

    Q: You should translate X game!
    A: The games I've been requested to translate have already been announced for a localized release, such as Professor Layton. I'd love to do a title like Tales of Rebirth for the PSP, but I've yet to find a hacker to help me with that.

    Q: When is the next version coming out?
    A: I usually make releases at night time, 11PM central or so, so please check back then!

    Q: Can you leave the Trainer Names and Towns in Japanese?
    A: No. The idea for the Katakana patch is to retain LEGALITY, not to feed weeaboos. The only thing that will ever remain in Japanese is the story. Aside from that, absolutely everything Japanese will be terminated.

    Q: What is the best emulator to play this on?
    A: Personally, I'd use DeSmuME. But if you really have the option, I'd suggest buying a flashcart.

    Q: Which flashcart?
    A: The Acekard most definitely for DSi. If you can dish out a little extra money, go for the CycloDS for the original DS/DS Lite.

    I realize that, but it's just a reassurance to people that it is infact on the way. If we form a team now, we'll be ready for the big day, which could be any day now, depending on if we're lucky.

    It's nice of you to be willing to translate parts of the game for everyone; good luck with the translation. ^^

    I still don't get why people make translations of games that are due to come out in their own country within months. If you really want to play the Japanese games, then learn Japanese.

    It's really simple. I mean, if your parent's promised you a new game console. But they add that they are going to give the same console
    to your nephew first because his birthday is coming up. Your nephew will get a game console months and months before you.
    Your nephew lives across the street....so you could also go to him and play the game console with him.

    If you had such a opportunity. Would you just wait a few months, or would you rather go to your nephew and play on the console with him. Or would you rather, instead of waiting for your parents to buy you the console, use your time to save your own money to buy the console?
    It's as easy as that. I mean, why would you wait for months for a game when it's just "across the street". Or "use your own money". When other people give it to you for free.

    And that is why translations are made. So that people don't have to wait.

    P.S. For everybody who doesn't think that well. Or has problems understanding me. I really don't get it if people didn't understand me, but:
    across the street refers to a translation that is going to be made.
    And use your own money refers to 'learn Japanese'.

    People are too ignorant to realize that sometimes. In any case, they were going to play it regardless.
