    I have no idea what .WSB is o.o;;;

    I'm wanting to work on translating 2404 - Ookami to Koushinryou - Boku to Horo no Ichinen (J). It seems that a lot of stuff is located in these kinds of files. So yeah...if anyone could tell me what it is and/or how to open them, that'd be awesome. Hah.

    Use a hex editor like windhex.

    Open them with a graphic viewer to find graphics and with an hex editor to see all the other things...
    The content is important, the extension can be mislead...

    hmmm, I still have no idea how to look at these things, haha.

    Well, if it has images inside of it, then it probably isn't for the text...and I have no idea where that'd be stored. Here are the folders located in this folder, some of which I'm pretty sure are already idenified and don't need to be messed with.:


    data
    font
    graphic
    movie - Opening video only
    script
    snd - sound files
    voice - character voices I assume, considering they seem to be labeled with abbreviations of character names.



    I'm going to need help figuring out these other folders though, lots of other folders within the data that I'm sure have some text within them.

    in the graphics folder, all files located in the several different folders are those .NSCR, .NCGR, .NANR, .NCER, and .NCLR type of files. Not knowing much here, if someone could tell me what those are for I'd appreciate it.

    I am not 100% sure about those:
    .nanr:animation
    .ncgr:compressed graphics(Nintendo Compressed GRaphics?)
    .nclr:are palette files
    Edit:
    .nscr:map files

    You can view all of those files using Crystaltile2

    that seems like those would be right, I wish I could get a 100% on that though.

    I'm really wanting to translate this, as I am a huge fan of the novels, anime, and now wanting to play the game.

    thank you very much. Unfortunately I cannot read that either. Hah.

    Are there any guides? and does this help with text? ^^

    CrystalTile2 is a graphic viever...
    For dialog you must use other tool, like a hex editor and find the hexadecimal value of jap characters.
