Update By: MrFwibbles

Mr Fwibbles (the guy behind the English translation of Grandia: Parallel Trippers) is back with a new English translation patch, this time for the obscure Game Boy action puzzle game, Nangoku Shounen Papuwa-Kun: Ganmadan no Yabou! Note that the game is completely different to the Super Famicom Papuwa game.

This was a relatively simple project with no major hurdles to speak of, however the title screen and intro splash screens have not been translated.

More information and screenshots are provided in the zip.

Hey. Congratulations on fully translating this GB peer to the (as yet un-translated) SFC/SNES game.

But the version 0.98 patch file right now on that game's translation patch page doesn't work as an archive. It's only 6KB or something. Can you fix it? Also the two links in your recent help ad for this game are down - maybe you deleted them or more likely as I've found in some other link in another thread that these sort of topic links seem to be broken or disappeared completely.

* Found the error: I think RHDN may have slightly changed the formatting of those forum topic addresses without at least providing room to accept the old address format.
Part of one of the old links in the help ad (Can be applied to any other forum topic basically):
"...index.php/topic,18895"

Well, it should be changed (Perhaps RHDN can make an automatic way of doing that?) with two replacements to:
"...index.php?topic=18895" (Notice the ? replacing / and = replacing a comma [,]).

* Never mind the above. A day or two after I discussed the aforementioned topic link addressing error this website finally managed to make them work properly now!

Hello and congrats!!

One thing, it looks like the zip file is corrupt. Is any one else having any success?

Good catch, askjdfhlkjhfvlvbuiyh

It looks like the download is actually an HTML redirect to the actual file. You can change the filename to .html, double-click it, and download it that way. :D

EDIT: I just submitted a fix, once it's approved you can get it normally.

Thanks. Oddly enough, I wasn't having any problems with the links before. Is the download working properly for everyone now?

Looks like the "Relevant Link" in the OP is broken. It's supposed to be my e-mail address with the subject line filled in, but it doesn't like that ? that I put in the link. Sorry for being such a troublemaker ;_;

Edit: Yeah, e-mail links are broken. It only links to the domain.

Yeah, the zip file is working properly now. Thanks Spinner 8.

Oh, and the web addresses of the forum topics, including those that Mr. Fwibbles put up in his recent help ad for this game, in their old format are working fine now. Phew!
Ah, it seems that the webmasters have forced a redirect from the old format for any topic links to the new format (? and = in place of / and , respectively) automatically, which is good news, definitely.

Added: The 'Relevant Link' email address is missing in the OP above. But I can see the address when you hover the mouse cursor over the same 'Relevant Link' on the front page news for this project.

Thanks, rainponcho! I've used the tools you provided to edit the company names and title screen, and submitted v1.00.

Wow, you've got talent, that's for sure! ;D :beer:
Also would you add rainponcho's name to your project's credits roll for his hacking help?

Yeah, his name was added to the readme file in the zip, but I'll submit it to the credits on the project page too.
