    Quick script (it works well on itemlist, need some tweaking on skilllist). By the way, the fact you got most script extracted is perhaps because they are plain text files... [​IMG] (also graphics uses already documented graphics file formats)

    CODEimport sys
    from struct import unpack

    f = file(sys.argv[1], 'rb')

    pad, strange = unpack('

    I guess 'this weekend' isn't happening, huh? Any update/report? I don't know much of the game, but it looked fun.
    When you're at 70%, either there isn't a lot of text ingame, OR You're a monster!! Well, then don't eat me or anything, good job though.

    I've got a FAQ/translation guide in the works, and I just noticed this project. Care to collaborate? I'd like to compare translations and see how mine hold up.

    Edit: Even the script dump would be very helpful.

    I think a whole month of inactivity can answer that question.
