I should probably start by saying, unfortunately no, I am not a hacker. I'm just a fellow anime game translator and enthusiast, who wanted to say 'hang in there'! It can be incredibly disheartening to not get any responses to your posts, especially when you've been working so hard, but I can guarantee that your hard work WILL pay off eventually! Keep it up!
And, I did actually have something encouraging to offer. I'm sure you're probably already aware of the various threads around from previous translation attempts of this game, although you might not have noticed, the download link in this post
I was able to produce a result with a quick test of the tool;
Unfortunately because it's just a quick test, I can't confirm that the tool is 100% functional, but it's certainly a start! It seems to me that the main reason for the later tools was for the benefit of the original translator, who had arranged their scripts (the ones you've been working off, I believe), in a different format, and didn't want to have to copy and paste everything back in. Hopefully that won't prove to be a big issue for you.
On initial inspection, the font seems to be okay, although you might want to mess around with the widths a little bit to see if you can squeeze some more characters on each line, and spread out the gaps between words a little more. This nifty little NFTR Editor
should come in handy!
And lastly, the images appear to be in the standard file type for DS games, which makes life a lot easier! How you'd prefer to go about editing them is up to you. I personally use a mix of Tinke
and Crystal Tile 2
. (Here's a good tutorial
to get you started with editing images in CT2.)
Hope this helps!
