    Looks like, after months of waiting, a bunch of lies and no official word of Nintendo, reidman, SM.net's webmaster, joined forces to translate MR. Itoi's latest masterpiece. Can't wait to see the results!

    As far as I know, this is not old, but in fact this was published on Starmen.net today (8th Nov) @ 7:47 EST.

    But isn't Mother3.org working on a patch? Does this mean that the two are joining forces or is there going to be competition for a patch?

    It's good to see an old cherryrommer.


    [​IMG] About damn time someone start translating this game.

    Ghideon should really get paid for all those beautiful translations.

    Last I checked, Mother3.org is working on a patch. However, they lack an all-star team like starmen.net has. Tomato doing the translation! Gideon Zhi doing the hacking!! And Demi helping with the script!!! Wow! What a team!

    Here's to hoping it goes well!

    Last news I saw from Mother3.org translation process was that they're desperately looking for a japanese translator on a message board (of a site that I don't recall right now...). Something's going fish over there...

    Hope they could do it too but, after so many years showing Mother series love, SM.net translation will rock! ([​IMG]) They have a great team working, there's nothing that can go wrong!

    Some guys at starmen.net had the game script translated just a few days after the game was released retail. I don't think a rom patch was ever attempted by anyone there. As for mother3.org, I've given up hope. Very early on they posted like 45% complete, then the next week it would be 65% complete then all of a sudden nothing, no updates, no progress reports nothing.
    If the progress was a s fast as they originally started posting, the trans would be finished ages ago.

    [-EDIT-]

    I just read on the starmen page that its Tomato who is translating.. this is excellent news as he has worked on many titles before including such greats as Bahamuut Lagoon.

    Maybe Nintendo decided that the costs for translating wouldn't be covered by the sales? You know, Earthbound was a cult success, but it *was* also released at the same time as FF6, back then...

    I guess they'd rather have english-speaking rom users work at it instead of taking an estimated (correct or not, that's not the point) loss on this one...
