    NDS NewDictS 0.7

    News/release from Philips

    Phillips released several weeks ago a working homebrew translator with fat support for DS with the help of PALib.
    He only published it in chinese so it seems that it did not get some notice from the english speaking world. The program, which is using stardict dictionary files, is currently running on R4 (Thanks Phillips!!), M3SD and SCSD!

    To get it running you need the appropriate file for your card. Create the folder: "NewDicts" at the root of your card. In the folder "NewDicts" create a subfolder called "Dict".
    Copy the downloaded dictionaries in that folder(up to 10 different dics are supported, prefix must be the same per dictionary).
    The files with the .dz ending must be deflated, ending with .dict (try 7zip to do that).
    Attention the .idx file size is limited to something smaller than 2.5 MB.
    Example:
    StardictBritannicaConcise consists of:
    BritannicaConcise.ifo
    BritannicaConcise.idx
    BritannicaConcise.dict
    in folder root:NewDictsDict

    Wow! Works awesome.

    Great layout, but when a word cannot fit on the line, rather than the whole word be moved, it is just split up. I would prefer it if the whole word was moved.

    I don't believe Phillips will adapt the program very soon (but google chinese is not that understandable). You can change it yourself. He released the source.

    Newdicts v0.7j is out. Sesa took up the task and improved it considerably.

    Absolutely fantastic. I've been looking for something like this for ages. Works like a dream if you follow the instructions on installation.

    This this is great - what I've been looking for too... but:

    I can get the older "NewDictS07" version working great, but the newer "NewDictS07j" just says "cannot find dictionarys"

    I've followed the instructions about using idxToaoi.exe to create the extra *.wrd and *.aoi files and have added them all to the same "root:\NewDicts\Dict\" but no joy.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    You don't need the *.wrd file. Its just to see which words are indexed in the idx file.
    Check the following points:
    Did you DLDI-patch the nds file?
    Have all the 4 dictionary-files the same name?
    dic.idx
    dic.aoi
    dic.dict
    dic.ifo

    If that doesn't help I need the content of your Dict-directory.

    Fixed it.
    As usual it was laziness to blame - didn't DLDI the nds. (the older version didn't need it).

    Still though, is the new version (v0.7j) actually any better?

    When choosing between dictionarys the old version has a white background so one can see the choices easily - the newer version has a transparent background making it harder to read the text choices.

    I was hoping the new one might make the word wrap better to (scrolling as a block not line rolling)
