    I was working on this project with an old friend of mine, but he's busy right now in life so I'm trying to see how much info I can gather while he's out of the picture.
    We're trying to hack, extract, and modify "Yugioh World Duel Carnival" for the 3DS Jap version.
    However, the script files are in a format that is not familiar with either of us and I'm trying to see if anyone has ever encounter such files in a 3DS game, or if anyone just knows how to extract the text from the file.

    I don't know how popular this game is, but since I've finished translating TFSP, I figured I'd try and work on the Jap version of this game since it actually has voice actors in it.

    If there is any more info anyone needs about the project or the files, don't hesitate to ask.
    I've included the file I'm trying to rip the text from (the zip file below). I think it's compressed, and thus not really decipherable, but I definitely need further instruction before I can continue.

    I'd love if there was a way to edit the pictures and voices. We could input custom characters this way into it, and that'd be fun!

    It's way easier to do that on yugioh games like any of the TF or Wii games.
    The 3ds is a little tricky, which is why I'm having issues, but I'm sure there's a way to modify it if it's like a simple .arc file or something.

    These games use 3D Models though so it would be well, awkward to only edit the 2d pictures. Zexal for 3DS would be the easiest and give the best satisfaction.

    I'm not really worried about models, just the text files, like the one shown above.

    Didn't this get an English release though? What are you trying to modify from the Japanese game?

    As I mentioned in my original thread post, the japanese version has voice actors, the english version does not, plus a lot of other things were removed from the western release.
    Too many things to list out, but regardless, I've hacked and translated yugioh games in the past, it's just that the 3ds is a new realm to me and thus I can't get very far into it.
