Code:
get ITEMS long

for i = 0 < ITEMS
  get ITEMID long # assumed; if so, this doesn't need editing
next i

for i = 0 < ITEMS
  get ITEMSTRPTR long # string pointer
next i

for i = 0 < ITEMS
  get ITEMSTR string # null-terminated string
next i

# then padded, unsure of importance


any strings you change will affect the ITEMSTRPTR values following it IF the length changes - which is very likely..
not sure if the game could support different encoding, or how it treats such characters.

hope you can work with this.

its for http://aluigi.altervista.org/papers/quickbms.zip. just save the script as a text file and select it when you run quickbms.
it doesn't dump anything though - its just the structure of the format.

I created a simple BCS <-> TXT converter util. I hope that works.
Usage:
BCS_TXT.exe <file.BCS>
or:
BCS_TXT.exe <file.TXT>
Example:
BCS_TXT str_en.bcs ----> this will decode the str_en.bcs file to str_en.txt.
BCS_TXT str_en.txt ----> this will encode the str_en.txt file to str_en.bcs.
Warning! The existing files will be overwritten without asking!

PROGRAM UPDATE: Now the text file saved in UTF-8 format! Maybe this will be better, than the old, Ansi format was.

[Attached file deleted. See my latest comment for the most recent version of the program.]

thanks bacter, nice job

but unfortunately it doesn't decode Russian version, looks like can't support Unicode or like thing, or may be character encoding isn't known

I think that fonts are hidden in these files :

Your're correct , the strings are encoded in UTF-8. Just add UTF-8 translation to the script and you're done.

bacter,
I think it still have problem with Russian ecnoding, but i'm not sure of it.

You better make converter with support of ASCII table chars, and there codes for Russian chars are from 192 to 255
