This English translation looks very good. I am looking forward to playing this game after the translation gets released.

Heya!  Got any updates?   I check this site religiously as I await the most Tomato-ey of adventures..   Also If you need any testers I would be happy too!   At my work i sometimes can not work so gba gets alot of love  ::)

There's no release yet, but you can build the current in-progress version from here: https://github.com/unknownbrackets/tomatotrans/tree/demille
(you'll have to "build" it but it's pretty easy to.)

I've been a bit busier recently and so has the person working on graphics, but currently waiting on some updated graphics.

Was the prospect of the GBC version being translated ever discussed in any official (for this thread) capacity? I know myself and some others had offhandedly mentioned wanting to see that happen.

Gimmick Land (GBC) was mentioned earlier.  I haven't really looked at it at this point, although I suspect the reduced resolution would lead to a more limited and abbrevitation-ridden translation (thinking specifically of menus, Gimmick names, etc.) at best.  So I'm more interested in Tomato Adventure with the time I currently have.

Hello friends.

Out of curiosity today, I did a little googling to see if Tomato Adventure had ever gotten a fan translation and stumbled upon this thread. I played part of the original in Japanese a while back, as I've been learning the language for a bit, but just wanted to pop in and say two things.

1. I compiled and played the first bit of the game and, so far, everything is wonderful! The translation is great, and I can tell how passionate y'all are about this game!

2. If you need any help with the translation, particularly when it comes to localizing the graphics, please let me know. I am an indie dev myself and have quite a bit of experience with pixel art and pixel fonts. I would be happy to contribute whatever I can to the github repository. Just let me know if there's anything in particular that y'all could use some help with.

Anyway, that's all. Thanks for all your efforts!

There have been some recent updates to some of the images, I know one that was recently noticed was the sign on the Alcatraz hotel:
https://github.com/unknownbrackets/tomatotrans/blob/demille/images/map005F_bg1_eng.png

There's a few more like Oya Yubi that still need some thought too.

Also need to go through and catch bugs and editing, please feel free to report any issues you see on the repo:
https://github.com/unknownbrackets/tomatotrans/issues

There's still an issue with credits as well which I haven't gotten around to fixing properly...

Just an update for those interested:

Got a little time, and fixed the credits issue.  It was encoded in a quasi Shift-JIS format and way more complicated than it needed to be.  Seemed like the person who worked on the credits display was trying to hack around a bug they didn't understand in the font drawing code.

Several shop name images are in now too, for example:
https://github.com/unknownbrackets/tomatotrans/blob/demille/images/shop_03_eng.png
https://github.com/unknownbrackets/tomatotrans/blob/demille/images/shop_09_eng.png (I think we preserved this pun pretty well, gonna be tricky in other languages...)

There's still a few more images and then QA/cleanup.
