Hi, I don't have the time nor the interest to fan translate this one.
But I have reversed some of the files. Here is some code that you can easily adapt to extract the .dat archive inside the rom :
CODEimport sys
from struct import unpack
import lzss
from cStringIO import StringIO
import os

f = file(sys.argv[1], 'rb')
os.system('mkdir '+sys.argv[1]+'_content')
magic = f.read(4)
assert(magic == 'SSAM')
nfiles = unpack('

If thats the case, it should be quite a painless job then. However, it's the Chirstmas holidays... I'd rather be spending time doing nothing than something

Also nice is the fact that if you open the game in DSlazy, most of it is quite nicely labeled...nothing as simple as STORY or anything mind you...but it is fairly straight forward.

I have zero interest in translating the story, as I've beaten FFIV 90000 times.

I would absolutely love to translate the spells, menus etc. to make it accessible to those who have no Japanese knowledge. If someone has dfeufeu-like abilities to make the programs/insertions, I can definitely help translate.

A menu/items patch would be more than enough for me. I would like to play it in japanese because of the cool voice acting, I don't really care about the story as I played it many times before, I will also buy the english version. I really need to start learning japanese so that I don't have to rely on patches and buy my games straight from japan. I have the motivation just not the time...

Yeah menu translation would be great. I also think it would be about 10x easier then doing the full menu and required text of FFTA2.
