Recently, japanese developer Cobinee has converted the american strategy classic The Oregon Trail to MSX. As in its original japanese version is a bit hard to play for non-japanese speakers, I'm willing to translate the game to english.

I've tried to contact Cobinee and asking him about giving me his approval; but I haven't been able to find a way to do it. Comments in his blog seems to not work for me...

Does anyone knows how to contact Cobinee?

What do you mean that comments don't seem to work? Did you fill it all out? Because others have filled it in. I can't see another contact method on his site. The game might not have been finished completely since the version number is 0.8.0.

But he has videos on Youtube. So you could make a comment on his youtube movie:

Translating it to an English version might indeed be nice if you can contact him.

Yep, and it simply fails with a "Comment error. This comment was not accepted.". No idea if aI need to login somewhere to be able to post comments.

...but the Youtube comments can be the solution, thanks!!

Sadly It doesn't work, seems that my comments were not accepted; that's why I'm asking alternative methods.

He replied:

Which Google translates to:

You can freely modify or translate the published source code.
