Hi, have you looked at Yakuza 1 and 2 HD? It would nice to have translation for that game. With your 2 project, i i feel like you are the one i could put my faith into :)
Hello, and thank you for your trust !

I have never translated any game outside of Wii games (with the noticeable exception of a SNES game in my teens, to see "if I could do it"), and right now I'm focused on that console.

Maybe when I don't find any Wii game I feel confident to translate, or want to, will I look at other systems to see if it's doable for me, but for now I'm on a third Wii project. :)

Anyway, thank you for your message, I'm keeping your suggestion in my mind for the future.

Have a nice day !

Thanks, Looking forward to your 3rd game. I wonder what that game would be? Maybe zangeki no reginleiv? XD

Xunga's review of my Earth Seeker patch on Romhacking :
https://www.romhacking.net/reviews/5693/#review

"The translation of the game is well done and could have perfectly been the official localization of the game."

That's one of the nicest things I've ever been told ! :wub:
It truly is something. Never thought I would get to see the translation of the game even when I was hoping Operation Rainfall would include this one whilst playing through Xenoblade in 2011.
Really thankful for the translation. Now only if Yakuza HD 1&2 received same treatment :P Wishful thinking doesn't hurt people say?

Ok i managed to extract the iso but im stuck again. I have replaced the files in both folders sys and files in your instructions. and i need to do the last step on the cmd but its not working. my cmd reads

G:\emu\wii-cube\WIT-patching games\bin> (I follow your instructions and type) "wit COPY DUMP ENGLISH.iso" press enter and i get this
'"wit COPY DUMP ENGLISH.iso"' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I tried typing wit press tab.. wit changes to wit.exe then typing it again "wit COPY DUMP ENGLISH.iso" and it still not working. i get this messege...

"wit COPY DUMP ENGLISH.iso"
!! wit: ERROR #108 [SYNTAX ERROR] in PrintKeywordError() @ ./dclib/dclib-basics.c#3927
!! Unknown command: wit COPY DUMP ENGLISH.iso
-> Type 'wit -h' or 'wit help' (pipe it to a pager like 'less') for more help.

how do i do this last step. please someone explain.

Hello. This is gonna sound silly, but did you give your decompressed files folder a different name? For example if your files are in a folder named " game", then you have to type "wit copy game English.iso". Oh, and make sure the "dump"/"game" folder is in the "bin " folder where wit.exe is, otherwise it won't find it. Please let me know. Have a nice day.

No. I got it to work though. I had to use a different command.. You're instructions say to type "wit COPY DUMP ENGLISH.iso" but in my case it was without wit.. so none of the commands in you're instructions worked, and for someone that has never used this wit program before. All I had to go on was those instructions but they where not working in my case. Luckly i got some help on the dolphin discord and they explaind it to me ..so i managed to do it in the end...that was the only problem I faced getting this to work. everything els in your instructions for the method with replacing files and system folder was understandable and I could follow that correctly. Only tested it out to see if it worked and it does. You did a fantastic job 2 on this and I'm looking forward to Finally playing this game.. I waited like 5 years for this. lol

Glad you could make it, although I'm actually surprised the "wit" part was unnecessary to you. Well, all is well that ends well, thank you for your compliments ! :D

Bit late, but thank you! Bought an import this game a few years ago without checking if there was an English patch, so it has been sitting under my bed gathering dust. Now I can finally play it! Looks like you have done a fantastic job, too. Thank you again.

Hello everyone,


In case any of you had missed it, I just wanted to warn you that my latest project (in collaboration with @Kaiser_Gummi ) has been released, and that “Zangeki No Reginleiv” is finally available in English!


You’ll find the video with the download links below: in case you have any difficulties getting the videos, the links under the description should work too, and if you meet any other obstacle, please leave a message here:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/riivolution-patch-zangeki-no-reginleiv-translation-for-wii.578575/


I guess this is all for now! My next project is a Wiiware, so the patching instructions will be a bit different.

It’s still very early, but the game seems to have silly humor in it (which I’ll try to adapt my best, considering the limited amount of characters I’ll have).

I’ll leave you with an example and a screenshot to guess… Let’s meet again in a few months!


Screenshot:
fj0Bwr8.png



Japanese dialog:

“じゃ、あんたはただの暴徒じゃない!”

(“Then you’re just a mob!”)

(暴徒 for “boto” = ”mob”)

“…な、何言ってやがる! 俺はボートでもヨットでもねェ!”

(“What do you mean? I’m not -on- a boat or a yacht!”)

(ボート for “bōto” = “boat”)


Translation:

“Then you’re just a mob!”

“… What do you mean? You take me for a broom!”

Hello everyone,

Like some of you had it guessed already, my next project will be a Wiiware!

So, I've created a new thread which you can check at the following address:

https://gbatemp.net/threads/line-attack-heroes-english-translation-for-wii.586680/


As you can see, it's going very well so far, but I'll probably hit a wall with some names and sentences that will have to be heavily rephrased... well anyway, enjoy this first glimpse for the time being, everybody has a nice WE.

Translation is great, thank you! I was using a real Wii and Game Disk and had no issue with installation method #1. Just drag and drop the files. I appreciated the nice instruction/game overview PDF, really professional.

Regarding the 3rd way of patching the iso, after the input of the first command in the dos window and the creation of the "DUMP" folder, 2 new folders (inside the "DUMP" folder) are created. The one is called "DATA" and the other one is called "UPDATE". In which folder do I copy the files from the patch?
