Ys Origin french translation project
« on: December 20, 2016, 10:27:22 pm »
Hello,
I'm working on a project regarding a french translation of the game [Ys Origin] .
All the texts of the story are translated, but we can't find the texts about title-screen menus / characters selection / item inventory details.
So, if you know how to find them, I should greatly appreciate your help.

example of non available text:

Hi there!

I take it that's the windows version?
There's a (very) small chance it could be graphics. Have you searched for them?
There's the not-so-unlikely option that these are embedded in the main executable (instead of text banks and other data).
If you can build a table for the game, based on the text you've already found, you should be able to "brute dump" text from all files with http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1164/... unless it is compressed. But then if it is in the main exe, I would bet it is lesslikely for it to be compressed.
Good luck!
