    Hi guys, I was just wondering if it was possible for someone to patch the .nds file for FF: ROF so that they would be able to translate it to English. I've only seen this done on a PSP game called Monster Hunter.

    Yeah, it's going to be a long wait. That's why I was wondering if it was possible for someone to patch it ahead of time, perhaps?

    I'm not sure if someone is willing to do a patch that will become illegal once the US version comes out.

    Based on the amount of script it has, translation will take weeks. I bet there's a Chinese translation project going on though, they're always so fast.

    I doubt anyone would bother with translating a game that will come out in English, even if it is a long way away. Too much time and effort.

    You could try and learn some Japanese, might take a while but at least you won't have to wait.

    Yeah it's possible.
    Not that anyone's going to actually do it though.

    It would be cool if someone made a tool that extracted all the text, babelfished it, then injected it back in. It would be Zero Wing all over again [​IMG]


    And about the above statement:

    AND DONT TELL ME THATS IMPOSSIBLE, ITS POSSIBLE BUT EXTREMELY HARD

    Final Fantasy games are text heavy games, there will never be a patch.
