How Translate Mass Effect Mobile?

Post by otaviotr8765 » Sun Jan 17, 2021 11:30 pm

The translation of the game is in this "masseffect.bin" file but I cannot export or import the translation file.

First of all, don't make spam topics. You have created 3 topics in 2 days
regarding some mobile games. Just focus on one game at a time and try to finish what you have started.

Secondly, text block is on the end of your bin file inside "CDAT" chunk. All strings are null terminated.
That should be easy to export/import, but if you don't know how to deal
with that, just hire a programmer who will be able to help you.
If there is no existing tool already, custom tool needs to be created.

Sorry this was not my intention to spam.

How do I export and import the text file?

As I said, there is a text block on the end with format

Code: Select all

x bytes - text string
1 byte - null terminator
and someone with programming knowledge can create some custom tool to deal with that.

As far as I know there are no tools for this bin file.
Maybe you should start with games where tools already exist like Mass Effect 2 for example https://github.com/jgoclawski/me2-tlk-tool
