ROM Hacking Discussion / Gundam Ghirens Greed V PSP, Hacker Needed!
« on: February 01, 2016, 11:39:27 pm »
Hey guys,

I'm new here, but I've been lurking for a long time.

The idea of a menu translation of Gundam Ghiren's Greed PSP has always been a passion of mine.
I admittedly lack the skill, but I've been plugging along anyway.

So here's what I've accomplished:

1. All graphics and ingame text are  static compressed images found inside of the *.MKD files  files on the ISO. (witch the exception of unit names, which are in the boot.bin)

2. I found a program to extract the images (GIRENAXV.EXE) , and have all of the menu's etc.. exported into BMP format.
I am semi fluent in Japanese so I've begun the process of translating the images.

The problem, I've have no way of re-inserting the translated images, due to the fact the program only extracts the files and doesn't inject them.

What I've found from hex editing is that the Majority of the images are probably compressed in a SD0 format. (I know nothing about compression, I found this through trial and error)
I'm attaching the Program and a sample MKD file I cut from from one of the large ingame files.

I would love if anyone else has the same passion and added skill who would like to help out.

(Interesting fact, this program can extract files from all of the Ghiren Series (PSP,PS2,PS) the MKD format was used across all platforms)

Send me any and all messages, I will send a copy of the opensource tool I found to whomever asks
