Editing text in Animal Crossing GCN?
« on: May 15, 2020, 09:53:15 am »
I have made a couple romhacks before (3 NES, 2 N64) and decided to try one for animal crossing on gamecube, as it is my favorite game of all time. However, I couldn't find a way to use it in all of my hex editors. Nothing is working, and I cannot find a tool that works well enough based off of my current skill. (No, the editing table files tool on here didn't work. I don't know how to extract one, much less put the file back.) also, there is a github thing that can supposedly do it, but I cannot get it to work correctly. If anyone has any info on this, please let me know.

Why don't you provide a link to what you found, rather than leaving us to guess?  What have you done so far to try to get it to work?
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

I haven't used it before myself, but they might be talking about this one.

Sorry, didn't think about that. I have been using these two [https://github.com/Cuyler36/Animal-Crossing-Text-Editor][http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1413/] for the first, I couldn't get it to launch. For the second, I do not know what a RARC unpacker is, or where I can get one, as instructed in the description. My goal is just to edit out the parts where the villagers laugh at the thought of your death, to attempt to make the game more lighthearted experience. I have attempted to find another tool to help mess with the .iso data, and just opening the file up in xvi32, my preferred hex editor. Do you know what a RARC unpacker is, or another way/tool? Thanks!

That second page has a link to https://github.com/jamchamb/ac-editor-stringtables , which in turn has a link to https://github.com/jamchamb/ARCTool .
