    Nice. :)

    I attempted something like this when the game was first released, but I could not figure out how to modify the lengths of the strings in the .sgo files, and I am terrible at drawing graphics for the tpls, so I gave up :P

    Here is hoping you can make a 100% game translation, well at least the menus. (Adding subtitles to the cutscenes would be absolutely awesome, but I have no clue how one would go about modifying the cutscenes to do that...)

    Weapon names would be great, but great work nonetheless.

    Ah, ok, i know... this game required so much attention!, is really damn annoying (for the LZ77, tpl ,header thing and editing.....)
    I dont know if the weapon have text image or text script... (right now i dont know, maybe some day after the menu patch i will find)
    Thanks! :lol:

    -Preview Patch V1.00
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    All goes fine guys! i can make a menu patch right now, i think a .ppf patch will works good.
    To reach this level of editing, i spent a really long time, but now i'm really glad.

    SOME INFORMATION:
    -All .tpl (text in image format) have a double text, one small and one large for the same image (small for default, large when you point the wiiremote on it)
    -I find much text in image format (tpl) and will be edited much later (now i will finish the menu)
    -EVERYthing can be edited, tilte screen, background, ALL.
    -ANYfont can be applied
    Soon new progress, right now enjoy this screen. ^_^

    First Video (Preview) Enjoy.
    Last news:
    -there is no text for the cutscenes, also no option for subtitle in the option menu.
    so this game have only voice over and not text.
    see you next time.

    Is time to release the first patch! Around 10 mb! :P
    I need to know how many people are interested in this project!!
    I know, the game is old and hard to find and buy, requires a motion plus (not necessarily, but is better)
    and a wii able to launch japanese game.
    The WiiU is already out, so this game seems to be pointless..(maybe the patch too?)
    Anyway Last edit and the download patch link:

    IN GAME MENU "pause"
    [​IMG]
    You can download the first 1.00 ver. patch from the first post of this thread!
    There is no copyrights infringement, is one simple .ppf file.
    Let me know what do you think, if the patch works great or not,
    I haven't found any problem/bug/crush.

    You should continue with the patch, I'm sure many people would want to play this game, that don't know Japanese.

    This is pretty cool. I played it a bit and I thought it was interesting, it's a shame it will never see light of day in the west.

    Although the slowdowns were absolutely fucking terrible. If this got a Wii U port it'd be really interesting.

    Either way, thanks for the patch, I may try it down the road.

    I am very interested in any patch that translates as much of this great game as possible--I'll try to get to it tonight.

    Thanks!

    Thx guys for the support, i appreciate it :lol:
    This game is really cool, i love it.

    I'm working on the Version 2.00
    What will be fixed in 2.00:
    -Fix Quit Button (not mean "quit" but "see motion plus guide" (video) my mistake)
    -Fix missing button in the character menu
    -All new "mission menu" (with all button)
    -I'll try to edit "weapon select menu"
    -Maybe other things.

    -Preview
    Mission menu in the 2.00

    I think i can edit the text too (the description), it must be in little endian, and i think the game
    have already english font inside.
    Right now i have all the mission name traslated in english, so i can edit the title mission too,
    (when you click it on the map) but for the moment i haven't find.

    I don't think we will see a remake of this, this game was a huge flop in japan
    and the motion plus games are dead now, cause of the wiiu tablet seems to have the priority.

    This game really does look interesting. But the fact that you can't add subs for the cutscenes is quite the.... downer.

    Thx guys! :lol:
    yeah i know, no sub for the cutscenes is not the best thing in the world,
    but don't exist a option or a text script in the game, so..
    better than nothing XD

    Some problems with Weapons Menu:
    [​IMG]

    So, I thought the best solution was only this:
    [​IMG]

    These are the weapons for frey, swords, great swords, spears, hammers and bows
    -For now this is the best solution to use a weapon image instead of text.
    (LACK OF SPACE XD, damn kanji..)
    i tried to edit the size of the tpl, but is pointless, the real size and position are inside a .brlyt file
    i tried to change that file too but unsuccessfully..
    so this is it.

    luckily only this menu have so poor space, the others are better.
    Anyway just some fix:
    [​IMG]
    -Fix: HP image, [-] Prev (instead of prevoius), fixed 2 "missing tpl" for prev and next.
    -Add: Return to title, wpn 1, wpn 2.
    You lucky if you play online!
    This game support 4 player co-op, but right now i need to translate the online menu XD
    i dont understand anything!
    I hope to play in future in the co-op with 3 other people, but not now -.-

    Next update around week-end maybe.

    Wow this is fantastic, I've played into the game pretty far not understanding a damn thing! I look forward to the progress in this project and hopefully playing online with the rest of you guys. That would be sweet, I really enjoyed the game :yaywii:

    Huge thanks for the undertaking Rebirth999!!

    Hey Rebirth999,

    I managed to successfully edit the required .brlyt file for the weapon select menu :)
    (Image in spoiler tag due to size):
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I used the app benzin to convert it between brlyt and xmlyt (which is just an xml file), which I then could edit with any text editing app.
    Just editing the height and width in the xml for the "pic1" named "Spear" to the same size as my new tpl (86x25, as opposed to original 25x25), then reconverting back to brlyt, repacking everything, then testing it... and it worked fine.

    If you want, I can try editing the brlyt for you, just give me the heights and widths of your English tpls, and I will edit it accordingly :)

    Also, the strings for text script appear to be in the .sgo files, encoded in UTF16 Little Endian too. Editing the text is one thing, but I do not know how to increase the actual size of the strings, therefore not enough room for English replacement text... :( I hope you have better luck than me in regards to string length changing...

    \layout\Option.sgo seems to hold the option menu text.
    \mission\mission_list.sgo seems to hold all the mission names and descriptions.
    \mission\tutorial_list.sgo seems to hold all the tutorial video names.
    \weapon\WeaponTable.sgo seems to hold all the weapon names and descriptions.

    That is what I have found so far, hope my info helps. :)

    Also, I cannot get the V1.00 patch to work... I applied the patch to my clean dump of Zangeki no Reginleiv, but the resulting iso was unrecognized by WiiBackupManager, and it made WiiScrubber and Dolphin crash when I tried to load it... do you know what could be the cause of this?

    When I get some more time another day, I will try redumping my disc and using that to retry patching it.
