Windows 98 in English
« on: December 26, 2019, 10:11:12 AM »
In my previous translations (Yu Yu Hakusho and some Shenzhen Nanjing games), i failed because i couldn't figure out the format in what the texts were stored. So i picked up Beitongfang's Windows 98 and well, i discovered that the texts indeed ARE editable: they're stored in the CHR, so i just gotta grab my YY-CHR and go edit it.
Sorry for bad english, it's not my mother language!

I give up. Why? Because i just realized no one needs my work! For example, i'd like to have in Windows 98 the Date & Time Menu translated. What do i do? I google up "Windows 98 Date & Time", and it'll show me the results of the actual thing, translated! 100% legit. Furthermore, all the applications i know of (there might be one hidden, since i found leftover graphics from some game i don't know) don't work. The only Windows games i know of that have working programs are those based off Win2000, such as Educational Computer 2000 or SuborWin. But the graphics in those are compressed! And i can't edit'em. If you want so much to see what i've done before discontinuing this project. I only translated the Date and Time menu. And if you're on my friend list and want to see it so hard, you can PM me asking the rom.
