I reached out to that spokesperson I heard speak about it, and he seemed open to it initially; but before anything even got planned, communication just sort of stopped. I wonder if it's worth it to pursue the idea more.

So I started to think, and realized I could facilitate a translation of The Wind Waker into Ho Chunk/Winnebago. I worked with a friend with knowledge of font design to create a font for all the unique characters in the language, shown in the attached image.

Here's a pre-COVID story: I attended a local game dev conference in Madison called MDEV in January as part of my college's Senior game dev class. During that conference, a spokesperson for the Ho Chunk Nation in Wisconsin mentioned games being capanle of language preservation.

By that I mean communication dropped off.

I don't speak it, but I once reached out to a spokesperson for the Ho Chunk Nation about translating The Wind Waker into Ho Chunk. I got a working font and everything, but ultimately I don't think it was something they really needed.

Melee is 19 years old, cannot be played on modern Nintendo hardware, and Nintendo is not receiving financial benefits from second-hand sales of it. Let communities have fun!

That's what I currently use, and ads still show up.

A tool I wrote called SuperBMD is in use for many J3D games, like Pikmin 2 and Wind Waker. Yoshi2 made modifications to it for better compatibility, but it was built on earlier model tools I wrote. Even supports skinning, which is how WWRando has custom player models!

1. The version of SuperBMD used to convert the models was modified by Yoshi2, yes, but I wrote the original program. 2. If you're going to cover individual mods, then you should cover BigSharkZ's various Wind Waker mods:

So according to we have a brain region specifically designed to figure out what caused something to happen: And now I'm just left to deal with the fact that we really are just super dense collections of neural networks๐Ÿ™ƒ
