    FFE may not be coming to NA for years. An english translation of the menus would be terrific and of course greatly appreciated by us all.

    I would love to jump on board with this! But I don't know how to get my hands on the actual files that I need to translate.

    You mean you don't know which files to translate or you can't find this game?

    I have the game, I just don't know how to unpack it to get the files to translate.
    Not a lot of people are specific in how its done.

    Well then it looks like i'm outta my league, because i'm not sure what that code goes to,
    but if you could provide a step by step guide that would really help me and most likely others.
    That is if it's not too much trouble or and inconvenience to you?

    Well, if you want to accomplish literally everything I have accomplished:

    -Dump the romfs the same way as any other 3ds game.
    -Notice that the creators compress their files, but that they are kind enough to use the type of compression as a magic for the first four bytes of every file (seriously, files start with "blz", "none", etc).
    -Decompress files using a blz tool I downloaded from the internet.
    -Notice that file 0641427059 looks like a bunch of japanese unicode.
    -Notice that there are four bytes that don't look like text before every string.
    -Make a quick dumper to convert it to text, post in this thread.

    I've also found a darc with some bclims, but haven't really put much effort into finding anything else:

    yeah i think ucs-1 / utf-16 (LE iirc)/ unicode is commonly used on 3ds games ... and also is default format on font tool from SDK. i already done with FL, and HM Stuff, maybe i will poke around on FF:E on this night and continues to XY/ORAS stuff.

    You managed to extract/decompress the model formats then?
    I've managed to extract everything from the romfs and looked at the data but I don't recognize any of the compression at all, none of the headers are anything I know of so I simply stopped there, could you share the script/tool you used to decrypt the model files at all? Viewing them shouldn't be too difficult, though to my knowledge nothing currently views bclims.

    Anyone still interested in translating this game to english? Most likely there will be no official translation for a long time.

    I dumped all of the text from the game to excel and uploaded it here for everyone to read or download:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1t8d_OWXF8hlipob4dAWsQOPdu9iK0Cdx7WP2HV9SkgI

    It's simply to much for me alone to translate it with just google translate, 15264 text entries, both story and menu mixed.

    It contains all the text from
    "/message/message.textres" (hash: 3985733386, Retail + Update 1 v1056 + Update 2 v2096)
    and
    "/message/message_home.textres" (hash: 0641427059)

    There is no text limit and it's easy to insert text back into the game, by modifying the game's update (which is just 5 MB), so a almost legal translation is possible since we don't even need to modify the game, just a small update file (-> works with retail cards).
