    Short story is i decided to try my hand at making a fan translation for EOV
    Downside is this is my first attempt at rom hacking, so I figured I'd make a thread to ask for help.
    Edit2: The Kuriimu guys are really helpfull
    If anyone knows how to read & edit any of these file types, it'd be really appreciated.
    Code:
    .TBL*
    .MBM*
    .BCH**
    .BAM2**
    .BL
    .EPL
    .TMX
    .STEX
    .BCFNT
    .SSND
    .SSB
    .TTD
    *Judging from the location of these files, they may hold text and are things i'm looking into
    **judging from the location of these files they're more likely than not animations & models, and other than being interesting to look at theyre low on the priority list

    as far as my knowledge goes you should be able to use visual studio https://www.visualstudio.com/ for free to check out the files. just choose the community edition and then you should be good to go

    I can't help with it, but I at least can show how much I'm supporting this, considering that, unless it's announced during E3, we probably won't have an official release of EOV outside of Japan.

    Keep up the good work.

    I'm exactly the same, I would love to help if I knew what I was doing. I'm hoping if there's enough interest that people will band together and make a translation patch. At most I can link you to some translated stuff like skills from the Etrian Odyssey subreddit.

    I believe that MBM is supported in Kuriimu along with BCFNT for preview generation. We also have an early EOV game plugin with placeholder preview functionality.
    STEX is supported in Kukkii.

    We plan to support BCH in the future. The other formats don't look that important in terms of translation.

    This makes me so happy, I was starting to lose hope after the lack of discussion about a translation and finding out the ATLUS birthday stream was for Japan only:D
