    Hey there!
    I'll just keep this short.

    A few days ago a friend of mine asked me to take
    a look at a VN she was having trouble installing on
    her PC. After having a look at the VN i noticed that
    there was some serious issues with the installer, so
    i decided to extract the archives and import them into
    a new engine and rework it. I got the archives extracted,
    but i noticed a few new files i haven't seen before when
    doing this kind of thing.

    VN name: Kokoro Navi
    Lang: Japanese
    Release Date: 2003
    Archive File Formats: .EPK, .EGD (Both successfully extracted).
    File names: SptScr.spt, StrMsg.str, StrScr.srt, TxtWin.dat,
    VarSys.var, VarUsr.var.

    And i believe the scripts are in these files, and i have no
    idea how to extract these files. I tried using MadEdit to
    see/edit the files, but all i can get from them are HEX, and
    i am not good enough to know what i am supposed to use
    HEX with to implement/convert into code that i can use to
    make the scripts for the engine.

    I will be happy with any type of response that can make me
    move forward with this project.

    Kind regards, Xion.

    Yes. It still didn't work.
    We both have been using japanese visual novels before.
    Either it's to old or it's corrupted.
    So i need a way to get the scripts, so that i can
    remake the VN in a newer engine.
