Okay, you see that stuff on the right hand side of the page? That hasn't been updated in three years. Previous site owners wrote it. Here's what's happening now:
Ai, Eri and Ryou's Dearly Stars route text dumps
Some progress is being made to translate and inject the text back into the game. Please check in the thread for more information.
We've managed to find a guy who can hack the game.

Everything on this side of the page is outdated
This page is so people wont say "DS TRANSLATION WHEN" or "TRANSLATED IM@S 2 FUCKING WHEN" and shit in the thread. Now, we can have our 24/7 threads in peace, arguing which idol is lewdest.
Xbox 360/PS3 Idom@ster 2
Why can't it be hacked and translated?
We looked into this a while ago, and we would have to force break it. No similar strings or anything. We only had one person look at this. Xbox 360 reset glitching a JTAG, I have no idea if it could play translated .iso. Regardless we; cannot even get into the scripts. There is a group that is doing a "Tales of" game translation for ps3, from what I was explained, it's not the same, im@s 2 game scripts are stored in .scb files, whereas the Tales games used .cpk. Look into that if you are interested, I might be wrong about iM@S 2 not being able to be hacked.
No fucking clue. I assume scamco encrypts the fuck out of their shit, they even have that goddamn iPhone game that we couldn't use cracking programs for. Hey, if you can look at the files, check it out. No clue if it plays on a JTAG/Reset Glitched box.
DS - Dearly Stars
Now for this one, I see possible. Why don't we start it? We have 6 fucking psp games now that we want. We have hackers for that. We don't have hackers for this. Yeah, there are some people who have said they would held translate and all, which is great, but no hacker.

Gba temp has some tools and shit, or make your own, I don't know.
PSP - SP
WE SHOULD WORK ON THIS FIRST
THIS IF WE GET A ROM, AND SOMEHOW INCORPORATE TOUCH SCREEN IN PS2(Arcade runs off PS2, apparently) EMULATORS, MIGHT BE HACKED. We need a rom first. Any richfags want to import it? Scamco has a list of arcade owners in japan that have them, it is likely they will sell it to you, they can't put other games in there anyway. Not sure how much it will be. If you are a richfag, ask people in the thread what to email in Japanese to the arcade.
Oh shit, real books. Yeah, no scans, no TL.
Go buy em, buyfags, scan them for us too!
Google for the roms, you can even get G4U, and no, I doubt that needs any translation.
Email us or something if there are inaccuracies, I'm not an expert, this is just my knowledge from reading the threads.
Go study some kanji now.
