ROM Hacking Discussion / Dealing with an unusual file type: MFE
« on: April 27, 2014, 05:22:43 am »
I've recently started working on a translation patch for Atelier Marie+Elie (PS2). In opening the ISO, among the elf and irx files, there's a file significantly larger than the others with an MFE extension. I've looked it over with a hex editor, I've run it through some extraction programs, I've tried opening it with standard decompressors, but nothing seems to be working.

I'm assuming that this file contains the game data (images, music, script, etc) and that I'd be able to start on the actual translation work if I could just crack it open. Anyone know of any fancy utilities that might help me? QuickBMS looks promising, but it requires scripts to run, and there doesn't seem to be anything geared toward this particular file format.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Atelier Elie + Marie (ps2) translation

As a huge fan of Niponichi and Gust, I've wanted to play the original atelier games for quite some time. Since there's no translation patch and no official translation, I've decided to attempt to translate these two games for myself and any other fans. This will be a daunting project as a first time iso patcher,  but I have extensive experience programming in multiple languages. I have several friends with Strong knowledge of Japanese (I'm rusty and struggled with classes, but I'm eager to relearn and expand my knowledge) so I feel like I can handle this project, especially as I will be building off of the work of former attempts to translate these games. I'll likely start getting hacking tools together tonight after I get out of work and begin learning the process of making a translation.
