    Flash Cart Info
    For YSMenu, use this to get the kernel to boot the game due to a different ID: Modified DATs

    For Wood, soft reset and cheats should be off in order to get the game to boot correctly. The C-Gear can not be used at this point in time. Save after the first gym just in case to avoid freezing if you accidentally activate the C-Gear when you first receive it.

    It's more organized and has the pictures for the types replaced already. The gym leader names are correct as well. They managed the translation project for black and white a while ago, and they did a good job with that, so I'm more confident with a project pokemon translation.

    This is quite a good translation you linked, I was testing it earlier. I found the one that was posted on pokestation has used a lot of google translate (A LOT), this seems to be far better and only v1!!!

    I've been linking this one to people. It just seems better all around in terms of how its handled, consistency, and quality. Despite what somebody from the other translation might say, these guys move plenty fast and are sure to complete the project in fine time, and held to a much higher standard. The PokeStation translation might be good in time, but as of now, the Project Pokemon patch is clearly superior.

    Only problem with that translation is that it seems to change the game ID, so it breaks the compatibility with YSMenu.

    OMFG. Thank you. Not only is this patch better in terms of quality, but it has the Japanese Pokemon names option I've been looking for!
    I'm looking forward to the progress of this. Project Pokemon has been the source of previous quality Pokemon translations.

    Does anyone know if this has the anti piracy patch the other translation comes with?

    If it doesn't, just slap on the AP fix.

    It has combined AP I think. I have no problems with it.

    Same thing happened to the original Black and White, the following guide should help you. [guide edited to be relevant to Black 2 and White 2]


    "OK Here's how I got it to work in YSMENU.
    1. I used enDrypt to find the true game ID of the translated version of Pokemon Black 2 / White 2 by running the program with all it's files (the two eNDrypt files and Patch engine) in the same directory as the rom. I pressed 1 to encrypt and then did it again to decrypt so that the rom would have it's True game ID

    2. I used ttdt.exe to open extinfo and infolib to find the true game ID for the Clean Pokemon Black 2 and White 2.

    3. I replaced the game ID of the Clean Pokemon Black 2 / White 2 with the True game ID of the Translated Pokemon Black 2 / White 2 inside both the extinfo and infolib files found in your ttmenu folder.

    Here's what you need to do to play Translated Black/White.

    1. Place your translated rom inside the eNDrypts folder and run it as Administrator. Press 1, wait for it to finish encrypting, press any key, then press 1 again.

    2. Place the TTmenu folder inside you MicroSD card's root. I.E. the first thing you see when you navigate your Micro SD card. It should overwrite files. If it doesn't, you are doing something wrong or don't have DSTT or YSMENU.

    3. Run the translated rom the same way you would the untranslated rom.

    The untranslated file will most likely not work until you switch back your files."

    Good luck :)

    I'll try this, thank you.

    Edit : Bleh, too confusing, I can't figure what to do.

    I don't know why this one should be more accurate. I checked it and it's about the same as the other one, except there isn't as much translated as the other project has.

    Because they're not rushing it unlike the other one. Which allows them to analyze the text more carefully.

    Hm... More contributers means they can progress faster than the this group. So the other group does not "rush" but have more people willing to help. But it looks like both groups havn't started with the important texts, so we can't say which is more accurate. Just wait for another week~
