I checked those alternatives out, but it seems they all need accounts created (I'd like to use an anonymous site). I'll keep looking.

Riivolution patches only work with the original disc. MarkAss posted his files and directions to make something that could become another type of patch (maybe to make you're own ISO with the swapped out translated files?), but I never tried that method and don't know how to do it.

That's understandable.

Thanks for the clarification, and the work you're doing :)

It would be swell to see patches for iso down the line. It's such a unique game that so few westerners have had the ability to enjoy.

Here's a new link, but I think it will only stay active for 14 days unless people keep downloading it. So get it now, and re-upload it, or whatever. I don't know how much I will keep uploading it.

Instructions here: https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=22813.msg356494#msg356494 (requires original CR disc on an actual Wii console)

Thank you, very much appreciated =)

Don't have the disc yet, but it's nice to have the patch either way.

Hopefully a patch for the ISO will be available after a while :D

Hey! I wanted to know if anyone has been able to apply the patch on a Mac? I can't seem to make it work because I don't have a program to run the patch on my ISO. Thanks!

You should be able to do it on a Mac, albeit in a different way. MarkAss's original patch uses WIT to create a patched ISO. WIT can be gotten here: https://wit.wiimm.de/ (specifically https://wit.wiimm.de/download.html#os-mac) I never used the Mac version of WIT though - I did all my stuff on a Windows laptop.

Once you have WIT for Mac, I suggest downloading MarkAss's original patch (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BwemMlNPg_8aZ1YxNU0xYzF0amM) and after unRARing the file, open PATCH.bat and EXTRACT.bat in TextEdit and become familiar with the steps they do, and then try to recreate them on your own. This requires some computer skills.

Aside from WIT and other ordinary command line stuff, the only other program PATCH.bat and EXTRACT.bat uses is xdelta.exe (a Windows program). I don't know what the Mac equivalent of xdelta.exe is, but my Riivolution patch (http://www.mediafire.com/file/ai8fihaisoc1ynz/CR_Riiv_Patch_20171030.zip/file) already has the files updated by xdelta, so you can just get them from there and skip needing xdelta altogether!

In short, these are the steps you would need to do:
- Use WIT to extract all the game files from a Captain Rainbow ISO (you're on your own for getting that)
- Replace the game files from the extract (the ones that need patching) with the files found in my Riivolution patch
- Use WIT to make a new ISO


I hope that helps!

So, didn´t try the patch yet, but the text file from https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BwemMlNPg_8aZ1YxNU0xYzF0amM
says the following:
"
Version 1 - October 30, 2017
"

"
ISSUES REMAINING

- Instructions for mini games not translated
- Some Narrator text not translated
- Characters wandering around map, (not mission related), not translated
  (These have been translated, next patch release will have these corrected.)
"

Doesn anyone have any contact with the original developers or can give any insight? Sounded like it shouldn´t be that hard to fully translate the game.

Yes. It's a crying shame no one has picked it up to finish it.
All this needs now is ISO patching compatibility and a finished translation.
Shouldn't be too hard, if someone with the know-how gave it a couple of weeks.

Let's see how it pans out.

I just don't think there's enough interest in the game to warrant more work on it, by anyone. I've done what I can to make it easier to play with my Riivolution version of the current patch, but someone would have to be a super fan to finish it all properly. The translation doc by Kirameki is out there on Google Drive, but having the know-how and patience to hex edit the right files to continue the work, that's the hard part (and of course testing). Making an ISO or Riivolution patch out of the finished files is trivial.

Also, the English text in-game is not as complete as the notes from the Oct 30, 2017 release would have you believe. There's still a lot to be translated in the game, especially the latter half, and lots to fix/improve of what's already there for clarity and display/line spacing.
