Hi. I have the digital version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. How can I translate it and can I change the fonts (because the original probably doesn't have any Polish characters, and I want to translate it to Polish)? How can I dump it to .cia file?

OK, I'll try it, but without any knowledge about the dialogue files I won't know anything. I'll just search them after the .cia will be dumped.

It's dumping now. I wonder what Nintendo thinks about 3DS. In their website they say that every device that can dump Nintendo games is illegal. So, is 3DS illegal?

By the way, look at what I've found on their website:

When I type "XD" you know that it's going to be good

I don't get it. I see a Miiverse-Icon so how is this 2.1.0X?

That's likely just pictures once used for the 3DS XL being reused.

I know it is reused but it's still funny.
So wait, maybe it's on 7.0.0-13X
Still, #downgraded

So Nintendo doesn't even know which firmware they should choose for A9LH

By the way, it is dumped now. When I could choose what I will dump, I had two TLoZ:OOT titles, so I chose the first one. Should I dump the second one too?

Ohh, thanks for this info! If this was translated to Russian, then translating it to Polish will be even easier!

EDIT:
Where are the dumped files? I know that there is 478,7 MB .cxi file, but is that it? Did the braindump created more files? And how can I extract .cxi file?

I've read that before, but I forgot about the hacking toolkit and extracting .cxi. Thanks!
I've got that feeling that this is going to be great (I'M REALLY FEELING IT, #RevivingOldMemes).

np! all the way I can help I will do! XD
btw you can find it there
http://shedevr.org.ru/zelda64rus/translations.html#oot3d

I'm really impressed with these kind of translation, for portuguese sometimes we just have to add "´" "~", "ç" (like "á" , "ã" ) and mostly it's done by replacing an garbage character xD (like # if not used ingame)
But now languages like Russian, Polish, chinese you guys have to add a LOT of new characters, this is pro's work!
I was so amazed that they are able to add the characters, even without replacing the older ones... CH pokemon platinum I was too amazed hat I made an effort(with some help, of course) to at leats add our characters to the text entry XD generally people don't care for it but now all the "João" can have their name properly spelled, instead of " Joao" hahah

Well, in Poland we use normal English alphabet + these characters: ą, ć, ę, ł, ń, ó, ś, ź, ż, so I won't need to replace that many characters, and to edit the font I'd just need to add a simple line to existing characters.
Thank you all for your support, I didn't even thinked that people from all around the world (or at least Europe and America) would help me with a Polish translation.

EDIT:
Oh, wait, I can't extract it. I'm using Linux with Wine and when I open the HackingToolkit3DS.exe and choose correct options (at first I type cxi, then I type the name of the file, then I type y and it immediately says that it has completed extracting, but I can't see the extracted files anywhere. I've put the .cxi file to the directory where HackingToolkit3DS.exe is located. Am I really forced to use Windows? Or maybe I can extract it with other tools?
The .exe file that I've got is from this thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-decrypt-extract-rebuild-3ds-roms.383055/

I've updated my previous reply. Can you help me with extracting this .cxi file? I've written details in my previous reply.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Wait, I've found out that I can maybe do this with ctrtool.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

I need to dump it with older version of braindump, because the newer one fakes exheader.
So, it's time to dump it one more time.

Now I got a directory with 2 files:
exefs.bin and romfs.bin
How can I extract them properly? Can I extract it with ctrtool?

EDIT: I've extracted the romfs.bin, now I can finally translate it.

EDIT 2: These files have many weird extensions... especially .zar files, they are associated with PlayStation 2 audio files! But I still don't know where are the dialogues, and how can I edit these weird files.

The dump worked with the newer version, but it faked exheader, which is why I couldn't normally unpack it with ctrtool. I've used the older version and instead of .cxi i got a folder with 2 files. Then I just had to unpack the romfs.bin and now I have access to the game's files. But they are so weird, they have unusual extensions, I have no clue which files are the text files.
