    Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Tag Force Special
    ゆう☆戯ぎ☆王おうARC-Vアーク・ファイブ
    TAG FORCEタッグフォースSPECIAL

    [​IMG]

    Konami has created many great games and franchises; however, like many other Japanese companies(*cough**cough*Nintendo*cough*Square*cough**cough*), it has been known to hold out on its Western fans. That is where translators and programmers come together to make the game playable in English because not everyone can read Japanese. Everyone that frequents this website regularly is obviously already aware of this.

    Tag Force Special is a game that brings together all generations of the TCG and puts them all together in the same way SSBB does. (No, not really, but imagine Jaden duking it out against Yugi. :3) The game was another game that went the way of Japanese only release, but some amazingly talented people where able to pull together and make the game playable. The translation project thus far has been discontinued, but Clickclaxer01 has been working on translations for the story mode. Some of the translations have been altered for a humorous effect while the main story and plot points have been left unchanged.

    I have corresponded with Clickclaxer01 and he has stated that he needs 'someone with C# programming experience that knows how to unpack and repack binary files from psp games'. He would like help with this because he has been working on the project single-handedly and because 'there are certain parts of TFSP that I would like to still translate[,but I need help]with the unpacking and repacking of the binary game files. For instance, the in-duel text speech by some of the non-main characters [is untranslated]. Not everyone is translated yet and it would be nice if someone knows how to make a decoder to rewrite those particular files, but the ability to modify any of the .ehp files that still need translating is what I'm really after.'

    This is where you guys come in. If any of you can help Clickclaxer01 out, please leave a comment below.

    EDIT: Due to the small amount of responses of any kind( I know, I know, several different projects being requested to work on and a shortage of programmers.), I've decided to add a list below of things that could be worked on to better help anyone wondering what there would be to do.

    Errrr... So you think it's easy to modify a game? So you think the files are all there, just waiting for someone to change them?

    Tell me, have you at least tried to do any of these things before judging the "fan base"? Just asking.

    Oh, no no no. I only just realized what the thing about modding might have sounded like. I'm actually happy about all the progress made and things and understand that modding would take a lot of work. I typed that side note up at one point and never really thought about what it might sound like. I apologize for any misunderstandings. I kind of typed it in the middle of the night and it was more of a wish for modding. I meant in no way to imply it would be easy and that there was no effort. Sorry, again.

    Hmmm... It's okay. I and others tried to replace the music in the past. We managed to extract and convert them to MP3, but doing the reverse sounds impossible atm.

    Also, Omarrrio tried some crazy things in Tag Force games, like edit Duel Puzzles in TFSP and modify 3D models on 5D. But modify Tag Force games seems hard without breaking it somehow or removing something else, mainly the last one. (The adhoc is still broken, btw.)

    Oh, I can also say there are ppl doing cool stuff with other Tag Force games in the shadows. Just don't expect they finish it soon.

    Somwhere you can never find.
    It would be nice if this gets translated completely, now if only it can get more recent cards.

    Thanks, but I'm just helping clickclaxer find a programmer. He's doing some great work with translating and after talking to him I found out he'd like to be able to access other parts of the game. I also hope we finish, though.

    I know you hate me and everything, but as a rom hacker, if i can even call myself that xD, translating stays to it's true definition, what you want to do is localize.
    Now to the hard truth, this isn't GTA, you can't modify everything, the sounds and AI scripts are a bit hard to understand, and no, the sounds cannot be extracted nor reinserted, as for text, i'll gladly send you what you're looking for.

    My bad, could've been TF5. I never know what you got on your mind anymore.
    What does the patch ultimately do? Or rather, intended to do?
