    Hi! Recently I unpacked Youkai Watch and its .fa archive, and I found two .xf files in the fnt folder. The magic of files are XPCK. So how can I open and modify .xf file?
    Thx.

    This Python script appears to do that. Message me if you need help.
    Edit: Actually, it might not, but the other tool in that repo might.

    .exe? I didn't find any exe. I'll try compiling it, and if I do, I'll either send you the executable or you send me the files.

    Does that mean there's no way to modify the font?

    Wait, so you wanted to repack it later? I don't think there's a tool for that...

    Just modify the font.
    It seems that Level-5 just packs the files as .fa archive instead of compressing. I tried to change the text in the yw1_a.fa and succeeded.

    Well anyways, I don't seem to be getting anywhere. You might want to try contacting the developer of that tool directly.

    xf files are Xpck archives, which are partially supposed in the tool. However, these xf files don't work, so you're out of luck. Sorry.
