Utilities: Tahaxan: NDS files extraction & viewer

Tahaxan is a tool to mainly help with the translation of games, but the possibilities are endless. It lets you extract any file from any DS ROM, decompress it if needed   (some files come compressed), and (most interestingly) display detected palette/image/tiles files. File detection is based on simple XML plugins (with Lua embedded) that you can edit to support more games without having to wait for another release.

Currently the app is in BETA phase, so you know what it means. Lot's of bugs!!

This has some interesting possibilities - there are some games for which there are translations out there (such as "Project Hacker") - gamebrink.com has a translation of that, and this would make it easier to find the original text and try to squeeze it in.

Of course, there are the usual issues - compression, hacking the program to accept the english, etc.  But some games like Ouendan might be helped, since I think there's little "text" and mostly pictures that could be replaced.

Mmmm - Ouendan....

Like asking whoever did the translation for permission?  ;)

Yesssss.


Hey, is there a translation bounty board?  I'd kick in $10 - $20 to start a bounty for some games getting translated (like "Tokimeki Memorial" for either the SNES or the PSP, or Jump Ultimate Stars).

Looks like it was never added.

There's a group working on it. They set up a wiki-type thing to get the various files translated. An interesting idea, but I can't imagine things being as consistent as they would be with one or two dedicated translators.
Twilight Translations - More than just Dragonball Z. :P

I can't download the file from the homepage: "file under editing process"
Any links?
