    For the last few weeks, since the JPN ROM of Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Fuuketsu no Grimoire (FF2-A2: The Sealed Grimoire) was dumped, deufeufeu and his team have been working very hard to bring us a translation of this fine game.
    This application was created by deufeufeu, and is used to edit the game's text, from Japanese to English. Not only does it edit the text, but also patches the ROM with the edited script.
    The translation is still being worked on by the team, and progress is swift. This app is released to the public in order to help the project along!

    Excellent tool! However, the binary does not work for me I had to use the source. As for the log file this is what it displays:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "main.py", line 4, in
    File "zipextimporter.pyo", line 82, in load_module
    File "wx\__init__.pyo", line 45, in
    File "zipextimporter.pyo", line 82, in load_module
    File "wx\_core.pyo", line 4, in
    File "zipextimporter.pyo", line 98, in load_module
    ImportError: MemoryLoadLibrary failed loading wx\_core_.pyd

    For the binary version to work, you'll need to install wxwidget unicode. deufeufeu made the program with open source wxwidgets so the required libraries are a little different from Windows.

    Get from here

    If the japanese text looks like boxes, you'll need to activate eastern languages support.

    Why are they doing this? Isn't the game coming out eventually in English? Time could be better speant doing something more constructive!

    It seems to Garble all my test at the beginning. Did I do something wrong? [​IMG]

    It most likely will. This, Dragon Quest IV DS, and Contra 4, seem fairly tolerant of hacking compared to most modern roms.

    this is nothing compared to dragon quest IV or contra, this game is a lot harder to hack. without bragging you can look at source code for the editing.

    On the binary bug I'm investigating it, I will make a bugfix. (I'm not a windows user...).
    EDIT : I've updated the zip with the missings files. (damn you copy-paste)

    It's constructive for those who want to play FFTA2 in English while SquareEnix didn't announce an US release date.
    Yes it will eventually be released, maybe in 6month ~ 1 year you know, and in 1 month we made it understandable (only story missing and few menus)


    It's not only a translation in English, but an editor in all the languages you want. Like Phoenix Wright Script Editor.
    You know there is Europe and languages that have this sort of game 1 year after US, if not never :/
    First FFT never reached the Europe, or maybe on PSP, 10 years later.
    Of course you know, Australia is PAL too.


    And finally, it's never for nothing, I'm sure Deufeufeu learns a lot of thing reversing this (difficult) game, and coding the editor. there is always a benefit, even if it's for oneself.

    People do stuff they have an interest in. It's the way people operate. Sometimes, I know it's hard to understand, what interests them is not the same things that interest you.

    I'm going to go eat some food now, because I like food. Is that alright, or should I be doing something more constructive for you? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sorry but no. The patcher is only and solely for FFT A2 at the moment. Sorry for disapointing.

    I've been following this thing and I have yet to get it working. I installed all the needed dependences and compiled main.py and when I run it I get this error message:

    I'm using OS X 10.5.1 on PPC. Any ideas?

    You did not installed PIL the python imaging library.
    EDIT : seing that you have used a app maker, maybe you have pil on your machine but it was not added to the dependancies of the app. In fact python script can't be compiled, when making a mac os x app or a windows exe all you are doing is embedding the python interpreter, the scripts and all the dependencies in one bundle. You can try to run directly the application like that : python main.py in the dir of main.py.

    Well I got it working now. The pre-built binaries you link too for PIL on OSX don't seem to work on 10.5. After compiling PIL manually the patcher runs fine.
