Any progress on this Leon, or have you been up to your eyeballs in other projects? I only ask because a topic I subscribed to at gbatemp got a reply recently and it looks like there are still a lot of hopefuls out there for this game to be patched eventually :) Said I'd check in on whether this is still in the works or not!

Sadly no. However, I do finally own a DS and am in the process of acquiring an actual copy of the game. Still need one of those special SD card thingies that seem to be all the rage for DS piracy (so I can use my DS to test with). Anyone know where abouts I can get one?

Well that depends on what kind of DS do you have? If it's just a normal one and you want a cheap and reliable flashcard I guess you can't go wrong with an Acekard I guess. You could try a couple of places like Xpertron @ http://www.xpertron.co.uk/genuine-acekard-2i-3ds-card-for-nintendo-3ds-dsi-xl-dsi-ds-lite-ds-2gb-micro-sd-memory-card-compatible-with-the-3ds-1101firmware_p5.html?cPath=883_884 or CheapR4i @ http://www.cheapr4i.com/genuine-acekard-2i-3ds-card-with-2gb-sd-card-p-193.html seems to have some good reviews, both links take you to an Acekard2i with 2GB micro sd, if you wanted something that I consider better you could check out the Supercard DS2, it has extra hardware built on the card for homebrew and stuff, on the same site but if you aren't really going to use it much then it's probably not worth the extra cost TBH.

Thinking about it both the Acekard and SC DS2 work on every type of DS ATM, as long as they are fully updated.

Hmm, so has this gone anywhere at all? Is anyone still working on translating?

As the author of the SF1 editor and having written a tool for decompressing, editing and reinserting the text there, I could probably provide that aspect here. I'm not really all that experienced with DS hacking, but as far as text is concerned, from what I know it should be easier than it was on the Genesis. If someone is still working on/willing to do the actual translation part and we've lost BoneIdol or anyone else who was going to do it, I could certainly lend my expertise.

Ok I will make a better topic presentation here but still:

or:
http://gbatemp.net/topic/321936-shining-force-feather-translation/#entry4123878
Still juggling with some assembly hack to do, not really into it right now because I've made lots of text debugging. And the translation is on the way, I'll provide screenshots were the variable-width font hack and ASCII encoding will be added. Shouldn't be too long but I'm just being lazy here...

Been exhausted with the new job the past couple weeks, but I still plan to keep on truckin' with the translating.

hi there, is this project still ongoing or is it dead in the water??? i know it's not something you can do overnight, but i would like to know if i can get my hopes up to ever play it in english sometime in the (far) future?? it's a pain now to play it in japanese not knowing what i'm doing, whom i'm saving and whom i'm killing. i'm even to scared to upgrade my team, because of my lack of japanese. i wish everyone who is working on the project the best and hope to see it finished someday.

It's on a kind of hiatus for the moment, until my job ends at the middle of next month. Once that happens, I'll have the free time to start working on translating again.
