    Hello. Currently I am working on english translation for Pictlogica Final Fantasy.

    Progress:
    - .jtex file with prologue text is untranslated. Thanks to Sidier from Fan Translators Int. Discord server.
    - Almost all .jtex files (over 600) are translated. There are some words untranslated, for example, in the shop, as there is no reason to use it. You can open everything by hex editing save file.
    - Out-of-region banner for EUR_RU is fixed.
    - .dat files are untranslated at this moment, as I don't know how to properly translate them. I need help with this.
    (found 2 years old issue on Gihub in Kuriimo repository with some technical information about idxres_*.dat files).

    Current translation is packed into .cia file so I can't attach file to the post. You can get it on that iso site.

    Sample decompressed .dat files you can find here.

    Unpacked game font - it has latin characters. So the translation should be possible without font hacking? :unsure:

    Small out-of-region banner fixing guide.

    We are interested in .bcmdl files, it is different for each region and language. Here is the list:

    • banner1.bcmdl - EUR_EN
    • banner2.bcmdl - EUR_FR
    • banner3.bcmdl - EUR_GE
    • banner4.bcmdl - EUR_IT
    • banner5.bcmdl - EUR_SP
    • banner6.bcmdl - EUR_DU
    • banner7.bcmdl - EUR_PO
    • banner8.bcmdl - EUR_RU
    • banner9.bcmdl - JAP_JP
    • banner10.bcmdl - USA_EN
    • banner11.bcmdl - USA_FR
    • banner12.bcmdl - USA_SP
    • banner13.bcmdl - USA_PO
    • banner14.bcmdl - CHN_CN
    • banner15.bcmdl - KOR_KR
    • banner16.bcmdl - TWN_TW


    Now what to do whit it:
    • Create a copy of game .bcmdl file from another region. Select one that is displayed correctly on home screen. I think the best bet here is banner from native region for your game.
    • Rename this copy to region you need (list of names-regions is above).
    • Open your .bcmdl file in hex editor and go to 000011D0. We are interested in the selected text (in this case, JPN_JP). Change it, for example, to EUR_RU. Save changes.

    So in the entire gbatemp community there is no one who can help me with idxres_*.dat files editing? :unsure:
    I still need such utility to finish Pictlogica Final Fantasy and PicrossE9 translations.
