I don't think it's been translated, and, no, it isn't illegal. Just don't post the rom here, and don't post the link to the rom. You have to post the patch.

Hm... From what I've heard from everyone else on this forum, this is not illegal. Everyone else is changing it. What are you so afraid of?

It is legal as long as you have a real copy of the game your translating, you redistribute as an IPS patch & for no charge.

It is completely legal aslong as you own the game you're hacking and don't upload the game on flashcarts and start selling it.

As long as you dont use it to earn money, or claim the game your own, it's completely legal.

Go for it~
