Im just gonna guess that's a no since it's a Japanese game, I have read about others translating games and when they added English text it was in a mess and I guess that's because there isn't an English language ready for use. Do any of you guys know how to get files out of the dat files as I would like to see the games files such as images and the like, I don't know if this is possible though. Also since the Japanese text didn't appear properly could you guys show me an example of it appearing correctly. Thanks guys for your help so far.

Ok lets say I did that and I replaced the Japanese text with English text, would the game load the English text or would I have to do something else to get it to appear. Also have people shared how they have done stuff like this before like tutorials because I haven't found any.

Well, this isn't the game's text.  Nor should you necessarily expect the game's text to be in ordinary, uncompressed Shift-JIS.
Those are meaningless, especially .DAT.  These files could contain just about any kind of data in any kind of format.

So what are I meant to do in order to get it to appear properly.

Im using Shift-JIS in madedit to view the file, I don't know which files hold the games text so I just opened up a random one. The games files are mostly in IRX or Dat, I have my pc set to japanese and I set the encoding to japanese language or was there something I did wrong. Has anybody had any experience of translating japanese ps2 games before as someone with knowledge would really help.

Is this displaying right because I don't know, I set Japanese on my pc and that other stuff but what exactly am I looking at. Have people done any tutorials on this stuff before because people should share the know how.

Thanks for the info and I want to translate the saikano/she the ultimate weapons ps2 visual novel game, I probably won't make any progress but I want to see if I can because I really want to play the game as it wasn't released in English. The games files are mostly in DAT and IRX files and you can edit the games text with hex editors but just say I wanted to extract the game images or sounds files, how would I go about doing that if possible.

You don't want to use a Hex Editor for translations. That's like opening a bottle of wine with a jackhammer. Use Hex Editor for investigating the formats, then you can approach a possible way of turning your results into a translation.

I didn't mean to use a hex editor to translate but for one to access the files as im kinda lost and need a recommendation on a hex editor that others have used for Japanese PS2 games.

Late reply back but im interesting in trying to see if I can change the text for this game, so ok I need a hex editor but which one should I use for translating a Japanese PS2 game. I have searched myself but I really don't know what im doing so help would be appreciated. Please provide link to the hex editor you suggest as that would save me the time.

DAT is just a generic extension, I wouldn't really bother to check for any utilities that can handle generic file identifiers. Open them with a hex editor and see what's inside.

Damn, that's what everyone said. Hey just use one of the xpert 2 plugins but they don't work said they even bothered to check if they apply to all games which they don't as they're specific. Thanks and I'll go check out a hex editor and see what I can do, any specific hex editor or just use any.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Japanese PS2 Games Dat Files
« on: August 06, 2013, 05:27:24 pm »
I want to open a dat file for a japanese ps2 game but I can't seem to do it, I have searched the internet and didn't find any help other than use xpert 2 but I used that and that didn't work. That extracted the files from the disc which were dat files and more but the dat file themselves weren't opened even when I used a bunch of plugins that you get with xpert 2. I want to open the dat files so then I can fiddle around with the text and see what I can do, I really need help on this.
