    I've been playing this game a whole lot lately and I'd like to do a full translation of it. I can do the script, but I have almost no knowledge of how I'd go about actually inserting it - I can't even decrypt the files successfully. Is anyone willing to help? Thanks in advance.

    Was just looking at Metal Max 3 for someone else, and it seems this game uses the same engine. The encoding should be Unicode, but I can't find a lot of the menu text. Maybe it's stored as graphics? If you want to poke around, here's a tool that will extract the archives:

    Download Metal2Trans 0.1

    I didn't have time to look into all of the files, so for now it just supports editing item names. I'll add more if someone figures out the formats.

    Oh man, this is a great help! Thanks. I'll see if I can look at the rest of the files, but it's unlikely I'll be able to do much.

    Some of the graphics files have an NCPS header followed by an 0x11 byte; that's probably LZ11 compression.
