Rent-a-hero No.1 text format has been finally reversed, allowing for editing text in Dreamcast JAP version!

If you are a fellow reverse engineer, programmer, translator or just want to help out testing / support, please send me a PM!

Please consider porting the English Xbox script and correct as needed, the way Vandal Hearts on the Saturn was done. Thank you so much for this. I gave up hope after the SEGAGAGA project fizzled out...

Xbox script use the very same text format, but packed into different files and scene order.

As per updates, last week all of 1st chapter Japanese text have been extracted and converted to ASCII. As of today remaining Xbox english text lines are getting converted as well, probably will finish in a couple of hours!

Next step will be to locate and replace all 66 lines of first chapter.


Regarding SEGAGAGA I'm not familiar with the scene, but after Rent-a-Hero will give it a look :)

Waiting for text extraction script to finish, I've moved on reversing menu format and got surprised to know it does mix .NJ 3D models with game text format!
