    I want to alter the text in Game & Wario. This is contained in a .warc file. I can view the text in notepad, but all of the formatting is lost.

    Does anyone know a tool I can use to view .warc files?

    Thanks.

    Try To use an hexeditor (ex winhex), not notepad.

    It looks exactly the same in a hex editor. Do you think it's a proprietary format and I'm out of luck?

    Check the headers. Might be SARC.

    I don't think it's sarc. The header starts "warc" and it won't open in wii u explorer.

    When you edit a file in hex you usually cannot add or remove bytes, just substitute them (file size must remain the same).

    It isn't SARC, I don't see a "SFAT" section and I doubt someone would change a header if the format was the same as SARC.

    I requested a QuickBMS Script to extract it.

    Has anyone figured out the WARC file header? I'm trying to translate a MSBT file inside it and but the edit file size is greater than the original.
