In this crazy world of ours there are fan-based video game translation projects and then there are fan-based video game translation projects. The team working to convert Mother 3 from Japanese into English continues to impress me as they try to replicate the Nintendo experience. How dedicated are they? Well, for one, they've taken the time to translate the annoying WARNING - HEALTH AND SAFETY message found at the start of most Game Boy Advance games.
In addition to inserting an intro screen of our own, we also changed the health warning screen into English. This was a pretty straight-forward hack, and didn’t require any actual assembly code hacking, aside from the fact that we moved the blinking “Press a button” text up a few notches.
It truly is the little things that count. Keep up the good work, team!
