    Shining Resonance is actually an OK game and I want to give others a chance to enjoy it too. However being in another language proves that difficult. So I would ask for help from anyone to lend a hand in translation of the game.
    I have already worked on another project named Omega Labyrinth for the PSVITA, and I know the PS3 is pretty much dead but still, let a man dream.
    So I have been in contact with HappyDance aka Froid San and I translated some texts in the .sdat files. Turns out those did not have any effect in game itself. Happydance later mentioned that those were "fake" text files and the real ones were in DRG_0001.sdat and in MTP files found in DRG_0000.cpk file.
    The heart of the problem is the decryption and access to these files. I have searched for quickbms all over but all links were dead. I may be no pro in translations but my knowledge of the Japanese language has proved useful in the past. If anyone could kindly provide the tool and also provide decryption methods for the files I have just mentioned, I would be really grateful.

    Many thanks to @happydance for the initial kickstart of this 2 man project. If anyone wants to help, I would appreciate it.

    I read on the RPCS3 website that if anyone had an interest in translating Shining Resonance they could help, they mentioned it in the Progress Report: June 2017.
    Just look for the part where they quote the state of the game.
    Good luck with the translation and sorry for my bad english.

    Hi ! I can’t really help you, but I am supporting this project at 100% !

    Also, do you know this video ? This is the first 1h30min of the game with English subtitles :


    I hope this video will spare you a lot of translation.

    By the way, I found a translated database of this game. The translation has been done by a guy called Master LL :
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...b6DX4R4H0MsA8FIzN4bws/edit?pref=2&pli=1#gid=1
    Warning : there are many sheets to read : do not forget to use the arrows below to read every sheets.
    Note : You can download this file as an .xlsx file if you want by clicking on "File" in the top bar.

    Happy dance is currently working on a mtp2txt converter which is the last piece of the puzzle. After that is done, I can go full steam ahead on translation.

    Alright also just something to add on, don't use BMS unless you HAVE to. BMS is so limited you wouldn't believe it, big game mods require more file space or info on packing which sometime BMS can't handle. In this case BMS is probably fine, but if you ever do any big serious mods not going the BMS way you would really learn something coding. Good luck with this project though! I might even play this game when you release. :)

    P.S make sure you are unpacking the .cpk properly. Using a tool for another game (ie Dragon Ball Xenoverse) sometimes doesn't unpack or pack everything. Again, good luck.

    Yes. Thanks for ur suggestions. And yeah I tend to avoid BMS. I use cpk extractors and that's about it for this game. Let's hope the mtp files can be accessed so I can translate Dem jp.
