    I for one am interested. I'm unable to help out, but I want to offer my applause for starting a TL project for the menus.

    I usually enjoy messing around with games like this, but got no idea about unity file types

    Yea, me neither. I took a look at them though a Unity Assets Explorer and while I found some image files I couldn't locate the text that needs changing.

    try this https://github.com/RaduMC/UnityStudio/releases and some text will be extracted to "TextAsset"

    the 1st dialog is on J_msg_story #3801821.txt

    Works great, I'm able to extract some of the menu texts.

    Now comes the hard part, putting the text back.

    you can just HEXedit it since it's just in Raw format and make a tool for quick injection, but this will limit your translation space.

    Hexeditor:

    or you can use this tool to import the modded file and will create a new resource.asset file

    Unity Assets Bundle Extractor: (sorry for the quick google translate, can't read Japanese)

    Guess I'll use the Unity Assets Bundle Extractor since it gives me more room for the translation.

    Thanks so much for the assistance @happydance, you've been a great help in pushing the project forward.

    I'm slowly going through the messages right now and will hopefully be able to post some screenshots in the upcoming days.

    Of course, I'm not one to turn away help.

    But I have to mention that once exacted the files are actually very easy to work with since the text is just structured very simply.

    Code:
    1000000
    [
    Yes
    ]
    Therefore editing is simple but it's better if you leave that to me since I have to make sure the sentence doesn't overflow in-game.

    I'm not sure what you prefer to work on so here I uploaded the menu messages which seem important, it's a lot of stuff to get through though.

    @AlternativeZero you can let @SSShowmik work on the menu images translation so people working on the graphics can start simultaneously as you deal with the text

    and maybe it doesn't hurt to make a discord server for this translation

    I do not have any problem with translating Japanese text. I am a noob in modding. Plus dont have a vita to test out. But if you can send me a text file with hundreds of JP text organised per script, I'll try an get those translated.

    I've made a discord for anyone who wants to join.

    And I've also uploaded the text files used in the update that needs translating here.

    I'll dig through the base game files tomorrow and see if there is any additional ones that can be extracted.

    Right now the main goal is to get the text translated.

    Also if anyone finds the image text, feel free to upload to the discord.

    Holy Shat, the texts are so messy. Weird symbols make it hard to translate. Any tools that recognize this kinds of texts?

    Update : Got myself Madedit. It seems to recognize the txt files and shows Japanese texts that I can (finally) understand. However how am I to edit these files? Do I use Madedit to read the JP texts and use word pad to edit and put in the english translations? I'm a noob but I want to help.

    Sorry for not seeing your post @SSShowmik, but for anyone wanting to help with the translation you are better off using Notepad++ to alter the text since it formats it properly.

    Anyways, to update anyone who doesn't check the OP, all the images with text and important texts has been extracted and translation of them are commencing at a steady pace.

    Thanks man. I'm one third done with the abilities text. Progressing smoothly. Although u might need to edit the spaces and capital letters and shizz. Madedit seems to work better than notepad++. It recognizes more jp text than notepad. Don't know why. I'll update more tomorrow.

    Most has been translated. Look forward to it. Still not a good translator, so forgive me for any mistakes you find.

    So here is a big update for everyone who hasn't been following the discord.

    Everything apart from the story has been translated and is in editing right now, so a proof of concept as well as a menu patch will be released once that has been completed, also because our current translator @SSShowmik decided to continue and another has volunteered to help, the story will be fully translated so this has become a full translation patch.

    Outside of that a few graphics still need to be tweaked but that is currently being worked on by @happydance who has done a wonderful job.

    Screenshots are up, the story isn't edited yet so wait a few more months for that but the rest of the game is slowly getting completed. Look forward to it.
