As the translator on this project, I'd just like to add that I'm not really looking for too many more translators. Just one, maybe two at most to help since I have less free time these days. I wouldn't want more than that though; too many cooks spoil the broth.

Unfortunately, Dragon Unpacker does not seem to be able to recognize the type of .pak file used in Metal Max. Thanks for the suggestion, though, everything is appreciated!

Thanks for the suggestions, those seem like pretty good resources. The main issue is still the .pak files, though, as the way they are made (and thus the method of unpacking them) differs from game to game, and this game is rather obscure, so no one has made any scripts for unpacking it as far as I know, and I don't have the know-how to make one myself.

Hello! I'm pretty new here (and to translating in general) and am interested in trying to translate the game Metal Max 3 for the DS. I've recently become a big fan of this series, and the two DS games are the best I've played (although I've yet to play 4 since I don't have a Japanese 3DS). It's practically criminal that they were never released outside of Japan, and I want to give it a try to help more people play these fantastic games.
The problem I have comes from actually extracting the text. I've looked at various guides and tried several things, but it seems like the files on the cart are compressed in .pak files in some way I don't know how to extract. Would anyone happen to have any idea how to extract the text, or is it impossible without actually having whatever tool was used to compress the files in the first place?
