    EDIT 28/9/17 Since I'm a little bit busy, I couldn't translate, and I have no free time, this is still alive, but this will be in slow mode.
    Also, cheuble is helping me for this time
    Also, i must thanks to Ploaj for helping me with the damn .std files! thanks dude! :3
    Thank you guys!

    *I will put my log right here now.
    *sometimes i will record a video about the progress.
    *You can discuss about the game and the translation right here.


    Well folks! since i have 2 months of vacations and i don't have nothing better to do, i'm translating Pokémon Card Game Asokabita DS! finally after years...

    -Tools i'm currently using:
    *CrystalTile2 (Text Hex Editor)
    *NFTEdit (Font editor -- i remplaced Katakana and Hiragana with ABC font)
    *DSLazy (Unpacker and Packer)
    *KiwiDS (file viewer and modifier)
    *Quick Pokémon Card Thing (lol Ploaj did this for .std files)


    -Issues:
    *Can't open SFA and STD files ;O; (basically, images are STD files? so i can't modify the images ;w; - Idk about NAF files. ----also the game have a test menu and debug stuff uhhh? )
    We did it thanks to Ploaj from The VG Resource! Thanks!
    *Some little issues in game-text, like:

    Nah, it's fixed. lol

    But sometimes, the game is so weird that i just wrote "The coin too!"
    and the game acts weird, and types:

    -I decided translate the game because:

    *I'm bored as heck in my vacations lol.
    *I love Pokémon Trading Card Game.
    *I saw there's no translation of this game.
    *I know now use Hex Editors.
    *Japanese stuff pls.
    *since i know japanese, i can understand and modify the text to english :P


    THE TRANSLATION IS STILL IN PROGRESS. DON'T ASK FOR DOWNLOAD. I WILL PUT THE PATCH WHEN I'VE TRANSLATED MOST TEXT OF THE GAME.
    Probably i will add the patch when i had like 40% or 50%

    Basically, progress is...:
    Text: New update! 7/7/7 11:17PM! 8%
    *Some rules has been translated
    *Some anime-cutscenes has been translated, but with minor text issues.
    Images: Nah.
    11/07/27 4:52PM
    Text: 14% (too much battle text!)
    Images: 2%

    Not here! now in discord!
    I repeat again, i can't access to .NAF and .STD files, I think .STD files are the images?/card images? because i can see the folder name is "card" and inside comes the cards images (?) with .STD file extension.

    (Also for those who can't find the ROM, i guess uhh... put the rom in my mega folder?)

    *The translation will be a patch. so you just need patch it with your favorite IPS patcher :P

    I will leave you with some pics of what i've translating :P

    Sadly, i only recorded one anime-cutscence. it's semi-finished that part. i didn't recorded the rules menu because DeSmume was too laggy. so... :L
    Also i think this will be my first project i make in my life. lol. name? uhhh, project snipy?
    i think i will upload more often videos about text updates or idk. lol. and about my progress i guess i will post right here.

    I should mention I'm going to be helping out with stuff like grammar and trying to figure out how to edit these damn .std files.
    Also, for anyone wondering what the icon looks like PKM_Card_Icon.png

    You're right. i'm still waiting for Pokémon Card GB 3 because:

    amn spoilers, don't open if you didn't finished PTCG2 TEAM GR or just want know. lol

    so, i'm still waiting for Pokémon Card GB3. after Pokémon Card GB2, this game came (Pokémon Card Game Asobikata DS) and they never did Pokémon Card Game 3 :cry:

    you could add a vwf, the letter spacing is kinda bad, and that way you could add more characters

    vwf?
    I remplaced ll ghe katakana and hiragana with ABC font, so, i cannot make it more "lighter".because every font uses 4 pixels (incluiding Hex value) to show it in the game.
    More characters? uhh.. this is the reason why is a game, right? Every chapter has new characters.
    The only issue i currently have: can't open .std files and .saf files, and i have some text issues, i've fixing most text issues.

    Variable Width Font. From the pics you have the game uses a fixed width font, which takes a lot of space and you will end up with stiff sounding sentences. A VWF will serve as a workaround to that issue, letting you add more characters per text-box.

    more info here: http://www.romhacking.net/?page=documents&title=vwf

    Just for this time, i will reply this.

    We have access to .std files, some .std files and other nah. i wonder why
    Anyway, this time, didn't freezed! so we can start editing images and images-text too!
    but of course, we need to load the others .std files because most files are just .std (images) and .saf (animations?) files. aren't common NDS files...

    SWEET. Me loves vwfs. Can you change the spacing of the l letter? I remember i had to modify the font file of the game to make the l's spacing a bit lower. Btw how did you do it?

    I simply edited the font with NFTRedit. You simply have to edit the option "Next Offset" for each character you want to modify.
