Managed to crack the game today :D
So this post is just a little proof, that it is possible, after like 7years. I will keep it updated, so check back for progress every now and then.
It is a text patch. No external textures are used.

Now it is just a matter of time.
I still need to polish the code of my repacker, which I wrote in Python3.
First I'm planning to release a version with all menus and items translated.

Still need to polish the code of my repacker. Mostly written in python3.
First I'm planning to release a version with all menus and items translated. (quests too)

Then if there is interest, (and help) the dialogs will be translated too.
Will see how important / requested it is. If you recall MH3rd had everything translated except the dialogs.
They simply didn't really add much to the gameplay.
Oh, finally someone did it, congrats! I'll keep checking for any news.

I hope you can do it with no problem and release some beta versions for us (me) to test. I'm waiting for this for a long time.

I know that every translation project focus first on the gameplay and then if there is interest and some dedications then perhaps the story could be translated. but as I always say: take your time, we don't hurry you and so you can do your best to just focus on finishing it.

Managed to uncover more of the dialog file's secrets.
Discovered special character:
FA FF __ __ __ __ __ __

The original values were the following: FA FF 64 00 FF 00 64 00
Converthing these values to decimal make up the color which you can see on the left side of the p6 picture.
64 00 (hex) -> 100(dec)
FF 00 (hex) -> 255(dec)
64 00 (hex) -> 100(dec)

As an experiement I changed the middle value to zero, and the game rendered the text in a blue-ish color :D
