    Woot! i followed your directions and it worked like a charm :D. It’s much easier now to play the game with even partial translation tysm allwho were involved. Can’t wait for a full translation.

      Whoa! I thought they dropped the project since their domain died (or was stolen, it’s a parked domain now), thanks for the hat tip 🙂

    Team HGG’s patch is further but the translation is unaccurate, well at least when it comes to certain items and weapons that were in previous games like monster hunter tri for wii. Such armor spheres are called enhance spheres in HGG’s among a number of things. Although i haven’t found a more updated patch from KenshiHH. I hope they haven’t stopped.
