Extracting the pack.dat file (Download in the main post)

Quote from NCDyson:

"Here's a really crappy python script to extract all 12940 files from the pack.dat... It took like an hour to complete on my computer, maybe someone else could speed it up.

Place this script, along with DSDecmp into the same folder as the pack.dat and pack.inc and it'll extract and decompress everything. There were no file names stored in the pack.inc, so they're all numbered. The BCH files look to have a really simple structure, so extracting the images out of them shouldn't be too hard."

Extracting the 12.000+ .bin files (Download in the main post)

Quote from NCDyson:

"here's another python script to extract all the images out of the bch files. It's probably going to take a while to extract all 12,000+ images, but it'll do it. Good luck translating this game, it looks like a LOT of the text is in the images.

The script can be called from the command line like so:
Code:

py aceBCH.py -e 0.bin

right now it only converts the bch to a .png. I haven't gotten a chance to write the code to convert .png to .bch
Also, it currently only handles the 3 image formats that were found to be used, which are ETC1,ETC1A4, and RGB565.

ETC1/ETC1A4 decoding relies on etc1Util.exe, which is pretty much just a hacked up version of smealum's etc.exe, I'll post the source to that on github when I get around to it.
etc1Util also only decodes at the moment.

to convert all the bch files(all but 1 of them anyways, 1427.bin doesn't actually have an image as far as I can tell), you can create a quick .bat file like so:
Code:

for %%x in (*.bin) do py aceBCH.py -e %%x

Again, it'll probably take a while. I imagine that half of what slows this script down is the reliance on etc1util, however, I'm not about to try to re-write the etc1 decoding in python, and I didn't feel like writing the bch converter in c++. One of these years I'll get around to writing a python module(with matching .dll) that'll handle conversion to and from common 3ds pixel formats, if someone else doesn't beat me to it first. "

I think, we must now concentrate only on one thing. I'll do the german and french translation, but we must have a bigger group for this. When I'm done with the first translation (depends on NCDyson, when he's done with the new script), it should take about 1-2 weeks. Then we can concentrate on other languages and I would help you with portuguese.

Good luck with this.

Is translating from scratch really neccesary? We still got the DS games in german?

Thanks, the menu is already done. Time to translate the dialouge. Why I translate this game? Its because many of us want to play this game in other languages and its because the new awesome HD Textures, there is a better feeling when you play this game. The dialouge costs me about 2-3 weeks so my translated version of this game should be done in about 2 months. And then we will see in what kind of language I should translate this game then.

I have never done any kind of game translation before but if you want me to help with text translation... My English is pretty good, so I think I would be of some help.
