Stuff to tell today

as you may have noticed, there are several other patching teams. And they have already released sth. Why I don't release anything yet?
Coz I want to be sure there are no errors in the patch and I also try to make a more comfortable way for patching as this is not available atm :/
So please stand by.
I have already translated all skills, most of the Felyne skills, some Weapons and armors and almost all items though some are missing.
Best regards


Hi guys,
small update.
1. I just did some research and I found out that I won't be able to do a temporary (GPF) patch :S
Why? To my knowledge, GPF only support 255 changes, but that is far too less for a good MH3 Patch.

2. I am now able to modify .brres files. Some menu stuff is contained in .tpl files which are inside of .brres files. Makes the translation more complete.

3. I put all our translated stuff together yesterday and it works fine :) You can expect a first beta release soon ^_^ Will be downloadable here.

4. We need more translators! If you are speaking japanese well, contact my at Minegarde, iHunt, YouTube, Twitter, what ever.

best regards

As I got banned....

As some of you may now, I got temporarily banned from MH3 online for ten days :/
In this time, I try to complete the items and menus and try to find out how to make a GPF (on-the-fly) patch.
But I can't promise anything, as I have quite a lot else to do ($$ ^^).
Stay tuned.


As Nall thought "early 2010" is a fixed release date and locked my topic at Minegarde, I'll have to continue here. Not my fault.

I'm halfway done with the items and most menu options as well as with some skills.
AGSoldier is still translating the new item names.
KenshiHH is done with most of the armors.

I tested everything yesterday, works like a charm. But the char limit is pissing me off T_T (and thats not the only thing >_>)

General Information

Hi you all,
thank you for reading my blog.
Well, I just took a quick look into Monster Hunter 3's structure and I recognized that they have stored lots of text in the main.dol. The items aren't stored in the itemdata.bin anymore, even if Capcom left this file in (its the same as in the demo).
I already found some text as the stuff the people are telling you in the pop-ups ("Tutorials") as well as some Wii system messages and Reward text.
The weird thing is they mixed up the monster, weapon, armor and item names to an confusing bash of text o_o Take a look:
It seems they have written everything twice: first in Half-width Katakana, second time as Full-width Katakana. I have to test if we have to translate both or not.

Another problem is the char limitation. As I am not able to repoint the text, I have to deal with the character limit caused by the japanese characters :S

I am also still searching for other menu stuff like the item pouch and such...
