    Again with the same question, but this time it is about file container - data.dns

    This one data file of this game contains all scripts and game related files and is encrypted with PGD. After the decryption, this file is essentially CPK archive with no header encryption and can be repacked like usual. But after the editing, is it possible to re-encrypt it back like before, or does it only works one-way ?

    Some pics of this game.

    And as always, this game also has font problem.

    Well at least the game won't crash even the font is off-screen.

    Each line can probably hold around up to 25 characters, still not enough based on sentence length average. The above dialogue has been trimmed or it would fall off the screen.

    cough cough...
    yes it is possible to repack, though....

    ...you may want to wait for an official translation.
    I wish you luck if this goes further. (but I really doubt it will)

    I doubt there will be a translation, they did not translate other game in the series.

    Well because normally you would need different key for encryption/decryption (not repack). The key provided (possibly public key ?) can be used to decrypt but is it capable of encrypting as well ?

    @About the translation:
    I'm just playing around with the game archives and scripts. The umd with only one data file just caught my interest.

    Good luck with the translation, I've been playing this game for a while and it pretty good.
    Btw, all (I think) skills, items and stuff have already been translated by someone.
    If you ask them, can you use their translations to speed up the process?
    Then, only the dialogue would have to be translated.

    Thanks, but unfortunately the only game I'm making translation patch for is Steins;Gate.

    Also I'm not even sure if it is possible to re-encrypt the game archive back after repack. Even re-encryping this game is possible, the patch file size would be as large as the game itself, since archive encryption would make every byte different - even for a small bit changes, unless everyone wouldn't mind decrypting, patching and encrypting the game themselves.

    Never touched the game, but if i understood well you can decrypt but not encrypt.
    If it's the problem you can put the decrypted archive in the game and with a simple ASM hack jump over tu decryption progress.
    It was like this for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep FM for example.
    But i don't know if you have intwntion to bother so much! ;)
