    Yes it is. Quickbms give me an error message about 4 bits can't be read and a file name error.Tthe cri tool opens the a command window then closes on me so I cant get it to start.

    Other then that do you know how I can decompress the .gim file so I can edit? I can use neosist to convert to .png and edit then convert back to .gim. it worked with entaku no seito just fine.

    Here is a step by step guide with pictures to show you how to do it. It works.

    Step 1 - Open Quick BMS and Select CPK.png Step 3 - Locate ALL CPK.png Step 4 - Create and Select Extraction Directory.png Step 5 - It Starts Working.png Step 6 - Let It Do its Thing.png Step 7 - Program Finished.png Step 8 - Sort Through Extracted Files.png


    Edited in piece about GIM files.

    I hate those files and haven't really found a good solid way to edit them. Mostly what you can do is view them. There is a few tools for that. Not many for editing them.

    Looks like you have a corrupt file. Open your ALL.CPK in a hex editor and compare it to this image.

    If it doesn't look like this. Then it is not a CPK file.

    Well I've come to say goodbye to all of you. Work is taking me out of the country. I will be gone for close to two years. Back to Japan(no, no joke. It's not the first, nor will it be my last trip there.) I wanted to say thank you to jamrules, flame and EVERYONE that helped in this project. I never expected for it to reach this point. I truly had a great time. I have learned a lot and thanks to everyone I have grown. Everyone here was so nice and helpful. I leave with only one request, that someone finish this project. Try the method I mentioned and maybe this great story can be told to everyone to enjoy. So to everyone:HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! :grog::lol::grog::lol:

    BEST WISHES TO ALL
    KAIKAISER

    Have a safe trip, Kaikaiser, and my best wishes for a fullfilling stay in Japan.
    Who's going to keep this house clean while Kaikaiser is away? :lol:

    It may be possible to translate the story. Probably, the method specified by @kaikaiser can be used to insert the script. But ASM hacking will be needed (that I don't know how to do). The spacing of the dialogue is all messed up (for normal dialog).

    In addition to the obvious, look at Angel's name too. They're not displaying correctly, see?
    I just did this in PPSSPP memory editor. I'm sure you could put it into the patch too if you wanted, it just wouldn't look right.

    I think it's not that great of a game, but a good time waster. The first game was certainly like that. Here's a recent review of the 3DS version of EXXIV: http://rpgamer.com/games/unchained/ubexiv/reviews/ubexivstrev1.html

    Ouch... Tough review...
    I do see what you mean with text being "not in place". I'm guessing line breaks are manually inserted in the text, right?
    Is there a "center" alignment flag not working for English letters, too?

    Can I help with anything? I wanted to start a project for either heroes phantasia or suikoden woven web of century. But until I get some help with that, I can help here. I can translate and am learning about rom hacking.
