Hi, I just created my account here, so please bear with me. I'm trying to extract the scripts of a Japanese visual novel I'm tying to translate into English, but every single game file seems to have the same the same file type (.rom). As far as I know, this is a proprietary extension, and from looking at some hex editors, the files are compressed. I am aware of the rules here, so I will not upload any of the files, so for what it's worth, I've attached a screenshot of what the 'script' file looks like in MadEdit. I've looked at countless romhacking guides and tutorials, and I've gained an inkling of an understanding of the subject, but in terms of dealing with compressed and/or encrypted files I'm at a complete loss. Would someone kindly push me in the right direction? I am a complete novice at romhacking (I just want to translate!), but I am willing to learn. Thank you in advance.
