So, to be brief, since TCRF hasn't touched anything from the Nier/Drakengard series, I decided I'd start fixing that myself, despite my lack of any real hacking experience beyond basic usage of Cheat Engine and hexediting.
So far, the only real progress I've made is in using X-Ripper to rip a bunch of BMPs and TGAs that nothing on my PC can read, and in ripping a .bik video (no audio, I'm assuming that's a separate file) that has half of Branch A's CGI scenes, and all of Branch B's... and, interestingly enough, all the talking head animations from the in-game scenes! That's right, those are pre-rendered!
So, I next tried to look into the game's text via hex-editing the ISO, and after I successfully generated a table file using monkey-moore (keyword used was "Inuart"), I tried opening the iso in Translhextion.
This is where I hit a snag.
Opening it in Translhextion gives me a "Not enough memory to load file" error. Trying to open it in WinHex32 just has everything show up as zeroes.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I should note that I'm doing this with the USA iso. Also, if anyone knows what to do with the BMPs and TGAs, I'd appreciate that.
