    I'm trying to write a script editor for this particular format but I have no idea how these scripts are formatted. All scripts start with 08 at 0x0, but 0x02-0x04 differ for each file. I was thinking that maybe that corresponds to the bytes of seperation between the bodies of text, but even that seems to be variable as well :|

    Could anyone provide some advice for this? The particular ROM in question is "Super Robot Taisen OG Saga Mugen no Frontier EXCEED (J)" if you have the game, legally or illegally :)

    why not make a thread for a project and gather people to help? having some stuff already translated will definitely help

    Yes, I contacted with him, but we still have the problem about sb re-compression, that is the last thing we need to make this project real, right?

    Indeed, I think applying the inverse process is the way to go, though it seems a bit obvious to do. You can try with it and see what happens.

    Hey there Eldinen, did you have any luck with inserting text? I'm sure showing a few pics will help progress things up!
