    No one wants to do it so I'm gonna try to do it. The font seems to be standard MT Framework .tex files. I also see a bunch of gmd files that I could open with Kuriimu.
    Anyone knows where to go from here? I'll do it if it's tedious but I'm not very skilled.
    Status:
    Menus: 5% (estimate)
    Dialogue: 0.07% (estimate)
    Cutscenes 0%: (maybe I can extract the moflex, add subtitles and reencode it?)

    Images
    Screenshots
    EDIT: So editing the menus are easy enough. I also have an idea on how to edit the story text.

    Yeah.. Might take a while though. This game has a very large amount of text and I'm kind of using google translate and intuition to translate it.. Soo it may be rough at first. I have no idea why no one bothered to translate this game yet....

    The main reason are the "Manga" style images they use as dialogue boxes. Those are images, not text. The 3ds and the PS3 version are ULTRA picky when you mess with those images. Lots of people have attempted to translate this, it's just too much work for a small team.

    You mean the cutscenes or normal dialogue.. Cause normal dialogues are editable and the cutscenes can be subbed using the new moflex tools.
    Here are some pictures of the first tutorial mission which is now fully translated minus cutscenes.. https://imgur.com/a/aCnME

    That's pretty awesome. I was quite disappointing with how they just left the game in Japan.

    I was of course super skeptical until you posted those screens. Those new tools are a godsend. Might also work on the PS3 version. I'll dig my copy out and rip it and find out. Thanks for letting me know! I'll see if I can find an old translated scrip[t for the game.

    Umm this game has craploads of text. As you can see from the screenshots of that software I posted. Expect like a year. I still need to not fail school XD.
