    but he said he wanted to make his own patch.
    Making a patch is easy, but I think you mean romhacking.
    Pokemon I think has a text compression - so you might need to learn some extra.

    But I think what the other guy did was do a file swap with D/P.

    Sorry, guys. I have a life.

    Translation is coming along. I've fixed many of the incorrect text issues by reinserting the japanese text.

    I'm in the process of translating some new things now, but my life has been hectic, so I've had no time to work on the patch.

    There is no ETA for the next patch. Just keep viewing the thread. I'll update the first page when I update the patch. I'll include some new screenshots, too.

    Until then, I won't be checking this thread. Also, I have no time on how to explain how to hack games. If you already know how to MOD nds games, I can give you some help, but I have no time to tutor everyone..

    Thanks,
    Rykin.
