A new patch was also released for the PS1 game, Tear Ring Saga.
It's the fire emblem creator's first game after leaving nintendo.

The non-english projects usually come from previous english translations, so no harm no foul, it just isn't for you.

The rare times an original non-english translation pops up it usually just gets re-translated to english anyway, so what exactly are you complaining about.

Besides it's free shit, never be a dummy and complain about free that some passionate hobbyist is doing in their spare time. Just be grateful the romhacking scene is still thriving, my generation isn't getting any younger and as older as we get surely the newer generations will be more interested in translating games from their childhood, and lesser older games. So translating retro games is essentially a ticking time bomb.

Besides, Frame Gride and Hyper Iria seem kinda interesting, albeit not really my cup of tea.

Be grateful ya little cunt

Re-translations are horrible.
People playing translations are deluding themselves, you may as well make the text up yourself if you can't read the original language.

>>3406138
That's the most elitist thing I've ever heard. Also, what about games that only need menu and item translations? Surely Frame Gride's translation is worthwhile mechanically.

I feel like a tardy for asking, but how do you patch a snes rom with an English translation?

I've played through FE4 and Front Mission, with the roms of both already being pre-painted.

I've been able to patch rom hacks for SMW and Super Metroid successfully too.

But I can't get the tactics ogre English patch to work with my rom, and I have to patch it since I'm wanting to play it on retropie. Anyone care to talk me through it? Which program works the best?

10 million hungarias
10-15 million of each: swedes, finns, switz, norw...
400 million native english speakers between UK CA USA.

if theres 5 hungarias perhaps there are only 150 unitedstadian interesting in retrogames, why even translate at all?

why do these morons even write in non english wikipedia, or teach their sons and daughters non-english languages RIGHT? fukken waste of time

oh wait, 500 million native spanish speakers, damn, why do chinese imageboard postadores desperdiçam tiempo hablando ingles quando deberiam hablar la lingua española

>or teach their sons and daughters non-english languages RIGHT?
So they can understand material from other languages.
My children learn English before they even enter school and are prohibited from watching dubs.

Most people I know use the English language Wikipedia first and only check other languages for appropriate topics.

>why even translate at all?
That's the point, it shouldn't be translated.

You know what you could do? Ask these fellers for their sources and just maybe by showing some iota of an effort translate these to english. It'd be a miracle, but still.

Hell, you know what I'd do if I was a neet? Superfluous shit like learning japanese and translating games all day. I could be doing that right now but I lack the interest because I don't get to dedicate all my time to the hobby. Anybody else have this problem?

It means you need a rom that's either header or not. A header rom is slightly different in size and it changes where all the text is located for the translation.

So if the TO translation you're using requires a header rom or a non-header rom, try finding one of those through Google and then applying. The translation itself should state what type of rom you need in the read me.
