The time has finally come to take on the ultimate adventure of translating Yo-kai Watch 4 ++ for the lovely Yo-kai Watch community! If you aren't aware I have already translated Yo-kai Watch 1 for the Nintendo Switch and it was a treat and my introduction to this amazing series. If you haven't already go check out that awesome project here at the link below!

Mad shout outs to MasaGratoR for his help with creating all the tools needed to make this mod possible and Destockjapan and Miken for continuing this project into Chapter 2 and beyond. I'll post their twitter and project discord group below so that you can go support it and even potentially join their team to keep the progress rolling on this massive YW4 English translation mod!
Without these guys and all their hard work this project would not have been made a reality.
So make sure to go show them some love! They are the true MVP's of this entire project!

Link to download the Mod's latest release version 0.0.2:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fnrZWsSOw8clt4dcNzaQx8SYnx6K-hd9/view?usp=sharing


Installation:

(MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING THE LATEST UPDATED GAME VERSION)

Installation of the project is very easy its a simple drag and drop. Everything is built around LayeredFS. So all you have to do is move the supplied "010086C00AF7C000" folder to the corresponding directory listed below depending on what Firmware you are using.

ATMOSPHERE DIRECTORY: Atmosphere/contents

SXOS DIRECTORY: SXOS/titles

Keep in mind when updating the mod to a newer released version it is always advisable to delete all the old files to avoid any possible errors or data corruption that might occur. Just delete the entire old folder and move the new versions folder in its place.

Alright so for the first progress post on this project I've got a question for all my fellow modder savvy friends out there. The main files for Yokai Watch 4 ++ are .cpk for compression and then when extracted it's g4pk files and g4mt files. Anyone familiar with these file types? With Yokai Watch 1 I used the Kuriimu and Kuriimu2 program for all the translations and packing/unpacking file management. Was hoping to do the same with this game. Could anyone assist me with some knowledge or point me in the right direction for the correct way to go with these file structures? I've got the games files extracted and found the folders holding everything I need but no idea how to once again go about these file formats. Thanks in advance for all the help my friends!
