But isn't it also illegal what we're doing here? I mean, Nintendo would rage if they found out about fans translating their game faster than the official team. (Even though I could care less since I support you guys, but just sayin' :P)

And what makes you think they don't know? One, they're not idiots, and two, this isn't exactly hard to find, or hidden in any way.

I doubt that they would do anything about this or even know about this, I mean why would they even search for it?

Because they're a huge corporation, with thousands of employees, and they like to get paid. They're obviously going to keep tabs on anything that might cause them to make less money, like a translation.

Sony keeps very close tabs on the PSP hacking scene, and I'm sure Nintendo does the same for the DS.

Translating a game isn't illegal and I'm sure Nintendo knows about it like you said. It's under the "Fair use" law if I do believe.

I don't know if it's illegal or not, but I do know that many a translation project has been shut down by a cease and desist letter from a corporation.

Sounds like they get pretty serious, but maybe they choose to do nothing as they think it might promote the game, i.e. if people download the game and play the translated version they may be more convinced to buy the real one

Like how they did with Serebii.net and Pokébeach, which to this day was stupid of them since they were basically giving free advertisement.

i know right?

Same here, I want to compare between translations and come up with a "who did a better job" conclusion. So far, I'm loving the fan translation.

It'll be released around March, and by how things are coming along, I say there will be a full release by late December or early January.

Yeah i agree with you at the rate at which translations are going the final crisp version should be out before the official :)

Even though i would have finished the game a couple of time by then i will buy it just to add it to my collection of games
