    Hey gbatemp,


    I found out that the australian version has multilanguage inside. We all know that this games currently only run in english... So I searched a bit and found multilanguage files inside this file. I tried it with RF and HANS but it still doesn't work. So is there another way to change the language?

    This game contains:

    -English
    -Spanish
    -French
    -German
    -Italiano

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm fairly certain a .fa is a packed file that Level-5 tend to use for there games, I believe there is a decompiler out there that works to some extent but no way to recompile the file.

    I've tested to manipulate the same as i did for Hyrule, but this time it doesn't work, so there has to be something else.

    Omfg... I would like to play a translated version. Level-5 is just annoying, if the translation is ready, WHY IS IT SO FUCKIN LONG?

    @Traiver I don't know if you used it, I found this https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-level-5-3ds-archive-tool.371116/ but yea, apparently we can't repack it...
    Maybe there is a way to just slightly edit the rom, in order to force it to use other languages using HANS? I don't know.

    Sadly the game is incomplete translated, there are a few profile folders with language and only 'EN' is filled, also not all chapters are finished :/

    Thats too bad. Do you think, the Aus version might be compatible with the EUR Version once its released here in Europe in terms of local fights? Since its both PAL

    Yes, of course. Those are both European releases. The only difference is that the Australian release is just an "incomplete" release in terms of translation.
    Are there incompatibilities with jap/us releases? It would be strange, games like Pokemon did not have that kind of issue.
