@Digital X - It's a simple.

Image

First - You need a export this resource by click "Save To File" button and edit it.
Second - After editing press "Replace Resource" button and select edited file.
Third - Press "Save Replaced Resource".
Finish - Press "Save Archive" if you've finished modding resources.

Note: Always make backup copies of your archives just in case :)

@mami11x - I already helped you! Tool works perfectly. Did you read the readme inside archive? :scaredy: It describes in detail how to use the tool.

Does anyone know how to pack the pck file back? I pulled the music from the pck file and made my own in wem format. But how do you add it to the game now? Answer, please. Sorry for my English.

Could you share how you got the files from .pck and converted audio to wem?
I think that if some people knew how to export files, then perhaps they could do the import.

This is a really needed feature, many people would to replace new remake music to classic.

Well, I used a BMS script by AlphaTwentyThree for PCK files with an AKPK header to get the wem files.

There's an issue with XBIN editing. :(

I don't know if it's Delutto's XBIN repacker or the Resource Explorer itself but after I reach 827099 characters and repack the xbin the game fails to load. (Game starts, gives a black screen, Steam overlay loads then crash). Please, if somone knows how to solve this issue help me. I really want to translate the game.

Luigi made a script that can export / import pck files.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/113db_i ... sp=sharing

when exporting, select quickbms.exe - pck2.bms - your pck file - folder for export
when importing, select reimport.bat or reimport2.bat - pck2.bms - your pck file - the same folder

How to make a correct .Wem file now?
The game did not accept .Wem file that i made throught Audiokinetic Wwise program

Hi guys, it's been a while since the topic is created but I'm having an issue importing the xbin file I translated. At the first time I used the tool, tool worked fine and there were no problems. I translated the main menu & imported the xbin file and it worked well. But after I started editing more lines and import the new xbin file, the game started crashing. I tried deleting some lines and put back the original line between 13000&17000. line - it worked but when I even edit one line between 13000&17000. line - the game starts crashing again. Can someone help me with this?
