    I don't remember that i actively turned you down, actually i never got a private message from you nor is there a post in the MHX thread of you offering help.

    I sent you a PM ages ago when the translation was first announced and never heard a peep back. I had offered language services since I speak/write near-native Japanese. Oh well, it's whatever. I figured you were tip-top on staff and left it at that.

    Reading up on how to edit basic text in 3DS titles to see if I can put out something simple for XX. I haven't dabbled in anything more recent than the DS when I did a basic menu patch for SRW Endless Frontier EXCEED and SRW K. Wouldn't be anything more than menus and art names. I'll experiment with MHX since I assume it will use the same file structure. Unless the files allow for sufficient characters per line (which from my experience is wishful thinking.God knows the Tales of Destiny R stuff I'm helping with doesn't...), abbreviations might have to suffice. How was that in X when you did it?

    Maybe look at the MHXX Demo? imagine it will be same/closer to what the retail version will be like, I've taken a quick look and looks like most of the text is in .gmd files, I've found tools to extract those into a nice readable text file but nothing to import back in.

    How about seeing if you can gather a separate team to work on XX and just hand them the tools? Better than nothing, and I'm sure most of us would be happy even with a half assed translation. In any case it's no concern, XX will be perfectly playable in it's original language as every other MH game was; it just adds a little research during gameplay.

    Hi. I made an account to report a bug I found. Whenever I try to enter an emerald congalala nest with the patch on Im finding my game crashes. This has not been an issue with any other nests (mind you I haven't tried every single monster nest) and im able to enter the emerald congalala nest just fine without NTR running (and therefore the patch also not running). Not sure if it will help any but using a n3DS with a physical copy of the game, latest UI patch as found on page 1. Just thought id make this issue known. Thanks for all your hard work with this english patch. Really looking forward to the english story patch.

    First of all, I want to greatly thank you for this amazing work. I've been wanting a game like this for years (can't hunt to save my life) and when Stories was announced it was a dream come true... until the months passed and no news of a localization... so thank you again for all this hard work.
    Second, I'm wondering, will you make a romfs version of your patch to use with HANS, for those of us who don't have a CFW-ed 3DS?
    Thirdly, and it can tie to my previous question, what about the DLC they've released? Will you be able to work on them?
    Many thanks again for all your hard work on this great game ^^

    We will definitely release an xdelta3 patch for the romfs and exefs. Not 100% sure about an NTR plugin+ code.ips for luma yet.
    And YES we translate the available DLC by redirecting the game to our own DLC server, via a codepatch (thanks to @moghedien).

    We don't have an exact launch date, we're working on this in our free time and this free time can be sometimes very limited. I will keep this post updated though so you can do an educated guess ;)

    Sorry if I appear to be desperate, I keep in mind that this type of work is more for hobby :P I would not mind that they took too long, in itself I am very happy for your hard work.

    Hello dasding and the Team. Thank you a ton for the trad, I had incredible, beyond expected fun with this game, all thanks to you.

    I made an account to report another crash Bug that has been happening to me. Once, I was against
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    and after some turns have passed, one did his Thunderbolt attack and the game crashed after the animation ended. The game also crashed randomly when I was in the
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    against a monster I cant remember. However, the first situation where my game crashed has happened again to me today, meaning there must be some sort of problem happening here. Thanks for reading and I'm waiting for your answer.
