black / white hack
Pokémon Black and White Translation Project v3 (Project is complete!)

1089 posts in this topic

[bYes, the project is complete. 95+% of the game is translated, including the entire plot. Feel free to hire your own private translator to get the rest translated[/b]

I will infract people who respond to potential rule breakers. Don't respond, hit the Report button or contact an Smod or Admin. A list of staff can be found here.

Project Pokemon Rules.

Second translation thread

First translation thread

Welcome to the Japanese to English translation thread for Pokemon Black/White. This first post is ONLY going to cover the rules because frankly, a lot of you aren't following them. The second post, by Kaarosu, is constantly updated on the latest research shindigs, and the third post is a FAQ. Check all three every now and then because they may be updated.

There is to be absolutely NO discussion about piracy!. What this means is:

  • Do not ask for links to ROMs
  • Do not give links to ROMs
  • Do not say you downloaded a ROM.
  • Do not give "subtle" hints on how to locate ROMs.

I can't speak for all staff, but I'm just going to ban people for 2-4 weeks right off the bat from now on for doing any of this.

If all you're doing is asking for updates or generally being an annoying leech who contributes nothing to this project, expect to get a hefty infraction and/or a temporary ban.

Finally, if someone in here is breaking the rules (trolling, piracy, or any of PP's rules) or you THINK they might be breaking a rule, DO NOT RESPOND TO THEM!

It only encourages them.

Use the Report button. The Report button is the triangle with the exclamation mark inside it. It is in the lower left corner of every post.

REVIEW.

  • Do not ask, brag, link to, or give advice on how to get ROMS.
  • Follow all other PP rules.
  • Read the first three posts of the thread, and the most recent page or two of the thread before posting, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE ASKING FOR HELP!
  • Check the first two posts frequently for updates.
  • This is a research thread. Off-Topic conversation should be taken to the appropriate forum, or to Private Message.
  • Similarly, annoying questions such as "when is the next patch released" or "will X be in the next patch?" and other useless chatter may end up with your post being deleted along with possible infraction points.
  • If you think someone broke a rule, do not respond to their post or private message. Just hit the report button.

Also, please don't PM me questions about the translation project. I just moderate the thread. Please direct those to Kaarosu.

READ THE FIRST POST BEFORE READING THIS ONE!

Don't need to remake an intro to this as you should know what it is. So I'll just copy and paste what we had in the last thread.

Contributing to this Project

For this project we have decided to set up a git repository to make contributions easier. The link to the repository is HERE. The procedure is the following. If you want to contribute, fork the project on github, translate the text in a file, then commit your changes, all commits will be revised and the ones deemed adequate will be pulled into the master branch of the project and used in the patch. To install git on windows you can follow the instructions here: http://kylecordes.com/2008/git-windows-go or HERE A recommended git gui tool is git-cola but feel free to use it through command line or any other gui tool. Help for github can be found at http://help.github.com/ or you may ask in our our #BWTranslation IRC Channel. (Server: irc.bitsjointirc.net / Channel: #BWTranslation)

Translating to languages other than English:

The use of the native language to those threads is allowed but restricted to those threads. IF you don't see your language thread here and want them up, PM me. Thanks.

Update: Release V7 is Out Now

V7 Changelog:

  • Hearts Sweets has a description
  • Battle Subway fixes yet again
  • Bunch of other random fixes that I can't recall but more stuff is translated yay

V6 Changelog:

  • BattleSubway/House updates (hopefully it should stop hanging now and trainers text translated) ~80% done
  • Non-Wi-Fi related Survey HQ are also included in this update
  • Bunch of random post-game stuff

Yea.. getting lazy with the changelogs but something is better than nothing right?

Anyways this patch update is all vgperson's work so show him some love for the great work he's doing (he even did more for BattleSubway/House to bring it up to ~90% done but I already made the patches before seeing the update he did to his git so these will either be added in v7 or v6.5 if the Battle Subway still causes hangs *hopefully this is resolved though*

V5 Changelog:

  • We don't have a detailed changelog for this release cause it was lost somewhere.. but it's mostly story updates a good amount of it was translated so we're about 80-90% done with it because of the great contributions being made by vgperson
  • The other noticeable change you'll see will be the messages you get in the WFC settings (i'm still trying to figure out this one so it still looks to be in japanese BUT any messages you receive in it will be in English... some stuff might be offscreen but it should still let you know what the problem is if any

  • Lastly we wish all of you a happy halloween! and thank you all for the support given to the team!

FAQ:

Whats the difference between the new & old logo?

New:

bromruto1.pngwromruto1.png

Old:

bpokemonbpatched5119523.pngbpokemonwpatched2218841.png

Union Room:

If you want to use the Union Room then apply Rudolph's v2 (or higher) patch to your game: http://gbatemp.net/t217811-rudolf-s-child-s-play-patch-pokemon-hgss-and-b-w

Save Issues Desmume:

To use your old saves with this translations in this emulator try the following:

Make sure the .sav file name is the same as the .nds

If it's still in Japanese, in-game go to Options and change 'Button Mode(5th option down)'

DSTT Errors? (ERROR=-4, ERROR=-5):

Check this helpful post: Click Here

When will v# be out?

Patches are released when we decide that enough changes have taken place to warrant another patch. Asking repeatably will not make the patch come out sooner.

????? isn't translated, will it be in the next patch?

This depends if we get to it or not. This game has quite a large amount of text to shift through and doing certain things isn't always beneficial to the team compared to translating as we go.

I would like to help Translate, how can I help?

There are 2 ways:

  • Report errors here.
  • Fork the Main/Story GIT and follow this to edit the file.

I found this "BlackAndWhite.txt" or "BlackuToHowhite.txt" while looking on the internet:

Yes, were aware of the file and are including in the translation as we speak.

How do you use PPTXT / make your own patch?

Read this post I posted in the other topic.

Great progress so far, thanks to all of the hard-workers on this translation!

Now, a question and bug:

Why was a new thread started? Just too many posts in the last one?

And when I'm using Munna vs another Munna in game, and try to use Psybeam, the game says "MUNNA in the way Psybeamhas put out!". Exactly like that, and it wont let me use Psybeam.

Also, you should specify that "http://vgboy.dabomstew.com/other/BlackAndWhite.txt" has already been found, so people don't need to keep posting it!

Yes. The majority of the Elite Four/Champion dialogue text is translated, along with the in-battle text. You'll see a changelog for the next version so you'll see what's been done.

Quick question:

Why does every japanese space in japanese text have to be english space?

Makes the japanese characters more difficult to keep apart.

BTW: Back from a few days of having my PC crashed :P

NSSVelocity, you should change something in your first post.To get the game work on the dstt, http://dsmadness.wordpress.com/. It really worked nice, they're following this translation and fix it for the dstt as soon a new version comes out. It would help a lot of people. It fixes both errcode=-4 errcode=-5. Your thing is outdated, since its for v2, and that werent even working for me.

Maybe I should have reported this earlier...but mischievous heart was missing the t and the end, I will use this patch and see if it's still the same.

Also, I will be playing this game from the start and will list any oddities or grammar errors as I see them :).

I've ran into my old problem again... Clean Rom was successfully patched with v4. Continued older save file & tried a battle, but once again I'm missing the fight cursor... the touch screen is unresponsive.

I'm gonna have to find a way around this inconvenience.

Same here for me. I checked in known translated parts from the text, but it still wasn't translated there for me.

After you have it patched, are you using the "File Name_patched.nds" file?

If so, set your ingame options to English. (Options, 5th down, Left Side)
