I'm excited for all these games!

About variable width font: Japanese usually uses a fixed width font, a font where every character, no matter how big or small, takes up exactly the same space. Latin letters however usually uses a variable width font, a font where every character has unique width (for example "i" is thinner than an "O"). A text using a FWF takes up much more space than a VWF and it's therefore possible to have more text on the screen when using a VWF. Latin letters also looks quite weird when using a FWF. As Japanese games doesn't need to use too much Latin letters the developers usually don't implement a VWF in Japanese games, so it has to be done by the translators.

I see. Thanks for the explanation.

Not that many, but more are coming now when we have affordable and reliable flashcarts. All I know of:

Complete:
Wonder Project J2
Tsumi to Batsu
Chameleon Twist
Bomberman 64 (the game from 2001)
F-Zero X Expansion (64DD cart merge hack)

Work in Progress:
Doubutsu no Mori
Kyojin no Doshin (64DD)
Sim City 64 (64DD)
Getter Love!!

Did I miss any? There's Dezaemon DD cart merge hack but I don't know if it was translated as well.

If possible, I'd pick a clearer font for the Copyright section.  It doesn't have to match the rest of the game font.  Rounded fonts seem to look the clearest for N64 games.

Alright here's round two. I added Dark Ray and Ray Mk 2. Man that tiny text right of the copyright is a pain to edit. Most fonts look like crap at 2-3 pixels wide

Yes, that got me too! Turns out 'Tsumi to Batsu', as listed in that post, is Sin and Punishment.



Binkers87, that looks great!

It freezes where the train drops you off. Unless you change the save type. In that case it works but you can not save!

Well, at least I have Bomberman - Arcade Edition.

Anyways, there's a slightly updated Mario Artist translation. Also, Has Pocket Monsters Stadium been translated?

The first one is missing.

Pocket Monsters 2 (Japan) - Aka Midori Ao Pikachu
Pocket Monsters Kin Gin (Japan) - All Pocket Monsters

International:
