Silent Hill: Shattered Memories font FILE search?

Post by |SyKy| » Sat Jan 05, 2013 7:31 pm

Hello all ! :)

For a long time on the Internet seeking a program that would find me in-game texts in ARC files. I tried to open with HEX editor, but I did not find the in-game texts...
I know that the user name Caws created a text editor for Silent Hill Shattered Memories, but it seems to be inactive...

I'm trying to create a program that would set. scanned ARC, and listed it game texts. You do not know any script that would set scan, and texts from him written. Sorry for my English. I am from Czech Republic. :)

Code: Select all

And why? For SHSM i made unpacker. Download unpacker. Before extract files from ARC download updated filelist in attach and copy in Project folder (Unpacker). After you can extract files from ARC and found files like:

Code: Select all

strings.eng
strings.enu
strings.fre
strings.fru
strings.ger
strings.ita
strings.jap
strings.spa
strings.spu

It's encoded in UTF-16, any text editor worth using should allow you to edit it without any problem (unless it has an extra non-text header of some kind).

Thanks. I aready have already this tools. I translated some text in strings.eng and i put back in to the DATA.ARC. DATA.ARC is now a little biggest. But game have a LBA file system security. So i edited SLES_555.69 via HEX Workshop and update strings.eng file size, but game keeps black screen and dont load :/

My steps:

Opened SHSM.iso with CDmage
Extracted DATA.ARC into windows folder
Extracted DATA.ARC with arctool
Translated strings.eng to Czech language
I put back strings.eng to DATA.ARC (now file is little bigger than original)

Work in HEX Editor => SLES_555.69 file

ORIGINAL
strings.eng original size is 431716 kb
hex 06 96 64 in hex editor reverse 64 96 06

REPLACED WITH
new size 456 052 kb
hex 06 F5 74 in hex editor reverse 74 F5 06

But game still not load => only black screen. I think it's a problem in new DATA.ARC (it's bigger)

Please help me. I will translate this game. [roll]
