    Excuse me hi i'm pretty new to the program and how to use it and all of that. But i was wondering how do you open the game files onto this program?? i wanna know because I would like to try and see if i can make my own english patch on a game called 'The Snack World: TreJarers' for the 3ds it came out this year. And someone luckily released a cia game for people can download and play the game. BUT since its in japanese and I don't understand the language at all (which is why i want to make it into english the game. To try my best to translate the game) plus the fact that no one hasn't released an english translation for the game at all nor an english patch of it. I would love to do it myself and try to test it out but I don't know how to open the game at all on the program ;_;" please tell me how to use this..if anyone can. Yes i'm a newb at this but i wish to learn.

    You would extract the ROMFS and open the ".fa" file with Karameru, find the text which I believe is in ".cfg.bin" files and then use Kuriimu to edit and eventually re-import them, though I test out .cfg.bin saving the other day with Yokai Watch and it wasn't working correctly, at best you could get started.

    Best to extract everything from the ".fa" file and also use a Batch Export from Kukkii to get all the images that need editing

    I had to check if the OP was Finnish just because "Kuuriimu" is "Moonrunes" in Finnish, just without one U in the word lol.
    Nice name, and great to have this kind of tool for fan translators, some projects lack tools or coders and reverse engineers for translating.

    Hey there tempers!

    There's so much in this release that I'll just let the change-long speak for itself. XD

    Kuriimu v1.0.8
    Features
    • Kuriimu can now apply labels, notes, and screenshots (soon) to individual entries using the new Lot feature.
      • Open any supported text file and then click the + beside "Lot" to create the necessary metadata file.
      • Once the lot is created, you can begin using the label and note features for that file.
      • Screenshots will be coming in the next release.
    • Kuriimu can now display the text beside each entry as a preview. Use the toggle button on the entry toolbar.
    • Select All using Ctrl+A now works in the Original textbox.
    • Karameru can now Batch Archive multiple files at once. Expected directory structure is created after a Batch Extract.
    • You can now close an open archive in Karameru via File > Close or the Ctrl+W shortcut.

    Does your NCGR support automatically match NCLR/NSCR/NCER?
    NCGR I remember need matching 2 additional files To display the correct image.

    It would yes. But it isn't completed. It only takes in NCGR and NCLR for now and throw it together.
    NSCR and NCER come later.

    Well, since the error message implies that a core part of our BinaryReader library isn't working anymore, it could mean that Mono and wine doesn't have the appropriate support for our used version of .NET.

    Well, can't you target linux in visual studio now? Or if that doesn't work, could you in the next release build it with .NET Core as that is compatible with linux.

    We can't target .NET Core as it doesn't support WinForms which the Kuriimu suite is built in.

    Also, what is the latest version that does work in Wine? I don't recall making any special changes for v1.0.8 in Kontract.

    1.0.5 is the latest that all work. 1.0.8 kukki and karameru work fine, but kuriimu does not.

    ; A ; Ah that would grateful to do..but I have no idea on how to translate games yet. I'm still new to this entire program and translation. ; A ;" I wish I could really help you out and be some sort of help. But alas I am no use of help :( you could try someone else who has good knowledge and hopefully get the game english patched or somewhat patched and see if anyone else is willing to help you out as well.

    As for me..i'll just let it be. I'm gonna try and see if i can work the program if not than i'll just stick to waiting in the line like the rest v.v for an english patch or translation.

    Also sorry for responding late.

    Hi!

    Great work!

    I want to ask question when in Kukkii will be added save option to GZF (Majora Mask font). Is there any plans for adding this feature?

    There are no plans. It's only a viewer not meant for editing.
