Hello everyone! Few days ago I find out about this game by SEGA, and as a big fan of Haruhi and a DS handhelds really want to play it. But unfortunately its only on Japanese. However, trying to find a eng patch led me to a full letsplay with pretty nicely translated to russian subtitles (I speak russian best). And I thought, that maybe I'll try to patch it by my self. Few days of researching google- and everyone saying that its too complicated to translate from japanese and that's all basically.

But, further researches gave the results- now I can find any japanese text in HEX editor. But trying replacing it doesn't seem to work, eng text just doesn't appear and russian text is displayed as @@@ signs. Looks like game is just not equipped to display it at all. But game contains eng text (in main menu and "S O S" for example) so I though that I can at least translate it to english.

Now I know, that every game needs it's own approach to translate. So please, if you are good at coding and ROM hacking and also love the Haruhi franchise- contact me, we could work together to Translate this game. I will provide russian to english translation.

Here is example, I replaced part of this dialogue with english text, but it just doesn't appear:

When you replaced it, did you try half-width characters or full-width? Sometimes games don't pick up half-width characters by default but they might with full-width.

Compare:
SOS half-width
SOS full-width characters

(I'm not a coder, just thought this would be interesting for you to know.) If it is full-width only, you will still need someone to help because the limitations of that aren't really viable for English translation.

Btw, there is also a partial English translated script available here :wub:

Right, I thought to my self- that's a strange looking S. But did not attach any importance to it.
Also, thanks for the link, it will help me to progress. Thanks!

    usually the kind of programming that gets paid isn't the hobbyist side of it, but helps to create a portfolio of things you're able to do and for some reason HR and IT love that, lol.

    on a second thought, I will stay at Bitbucket even if they decide to scrap the GIT over HTTPS in the upcoming months. All these russian bots sure want to cause damage to dev communities. (like they did to nesdev)
