DQM Battle Road Victory Translation project

Recommended Posts

Five years ago I asked all over the internet for help to translate the Wii game Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory and I got really discouraged by the lack of response. I am a huge Dragon Quest fan, I collect all the games in North America and all those that came out in Japan. I even collected all the various controllers, special editions, collector's editions of games, all the various consoles that came out with a Dragon Quest theme, figures and other merch I find interesting. My entire living room is a Dragon Quest museum. I have been doing this since Dragon Warrior came out.

Recently, I started playing Wii games again and I was very much frustrated by the fact that I couldn't play Battle Road Victory properly (I even have the special controller that came out for it by Hori). So I asked on the facebook group Dragon Questers for help with 2 or 3 screenshots of my previous translation work to see if I could even get ONE translator or some help and I did. In the last two weeks, I have translated most of the menus, all the information screens, the hint roll outs at the bottom of the screen, made progress in finding a way to translate the dialog of the RPG mode and even found a way to translated the trading card (Way too many for me translate, theres like 315)

Below are some sample screenshots of the translated stuff, and trust me when I say the word sample. Theres a lot of work thats already been done. I am posting here because I think I saw years ago someone who had most of the cards translated, and if you are out there, I'm reaching out to you. I know how you feel, not getting the required help. I feel you. Join me and the others in finally getting this project done. Meddling with the files is a lot of work, but I can do it and I can translate some stuff with my limited japanese knowledge.

Very impressive. I didn't know there was a project for this, either, but I hope you find success.

Hmmm... have you perchance listened to episodes of Slime Time? We've had representatives from a couple translation efforts on in the past year. Not sure if they'd be willing to help, but maybe they could point you in the right direction.

As for the cards, was there someone translating them? I was just trying to get hold of ChiChi, an old member here who was translating cards from one of the generations of Dragon Quest card games. Not the same, but I wonder if that's what you're recalling.

So, how is your translated effort played? Via PC and emulation or on a modded Wii?

Using Dolphin emulator, but the builds I test work just fine on a Softmodded Wii too. Its better on PC though. I have a USB mayflash sensor bar and I am using real Wiimotes, so its like upscaled Wii games, which is super nice with DQM Battle Road Victory.
