Original Post

Merry Christmas Everyone,

attached to this post you will find a fully translated SD Gundam ROM. While Ben and Greg Stevens already translated most of the in game text there was still some Japanese left. This patch builds up on their work and completes the translation. Thereby, every Japanese Virtual Boy game should now be fully translated.

What has been done:
1. Credits are fully translated using the same method as used for the original translation (simply overwriting text using a hex editor)

2. Warning screen doesn’t show the Japanese warning anymore and the English text has been centered.

3. The Japanese titlescreen logo (the still one and the one flying in) has been replaced with an English version. Virtuous Rage did draw the logo in a tedious process and also provided me with a depth map, which I modified and then used to convert the logo to 3D.

Attached, you will find the padded and patched ROM, some screenshots, a link to a YouTube video and my notes.
