Hello, this is my very first post. I came here to ask for help because I'm almost at zero experience at editing/modding files to make translations. Having said that, here I come to explain what I've done 'til today:

I wanna translate the game to spanish because there's no official translation nor unofficial. This idea came after playing the game and realise that it contains almost no text compared to other heavy-texted games like JRPG and so. Besides, this game uses words hard to understand to non-english people. I have enough experience translating from english to spanish (but no backwards LOL) and good Photoshop skills. Also I'm not good enough but I can do programming in C#

The main game is packed on a CPK file (CriPack) called "NinPri.cpk". This point was easy to do, because of the common format.
I unpacked the files there and found the following folders:
    _US
    AREA
    bg
    chara
    DRM_chara
    GUI
    msgsheet
    NPC_chara
    other
    script
    snd

And the main files have .FTX .MBS and .NMS. Other files are .OTB .ESB .ABF .WBF .NSB and last but not least .VSD

After searching for the text files I realized that the first folder "_US" contains those english texts in the subfolder "msgsheet". Tried modifying sysmsg.nms with HxD, repatched the main CPK with CriPackTools GUI... without success.

After looking a bit more with the HxD I found that the text is not encrypted, but the file itself contains a header/footer that I can't understand very well plus the game has some kind of checksum that avoid to load modded files.

NMS File header:
Code:
4D 53 42 A0 70 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 3F 02


NMS File footer:
Code:
45 4F 43 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00


Inside this files I found that the game use the following codes to show different elements onscreen:
Code:
%s - to show an string
null - to separate item's data from another one
eol - end of line
@#(66) - to show the sprite of the X button. (It may vary to show another button)
% - get a integer
%2d - get a two digit integer


I'll leave the uncompressed files on a MEGA link: https://mega.nz/#F!MvhlVQID!qCVohVVfFg_kLgpZeGS8_w
And I'll attach only the TEXT FILES here: https://mega.nz/#F!NrxXAIBK!OyyXaNvHErnn9OunlZ9wxA

Overall progress: [||...........................] 0.8%
Current Task: Translating the manual and the UI-easy-to-edit elements (that works without major problem)

Current task samples: https://mega.nz/#F!16w1FSjS!wZc1mIQrOQkHe1_GEPLuog
If you don't see any file in the folder it's because at the moment I'm writting this I'm also uploading the files.

Any help is apreciated and forgive my bad english, I'm not good enough from spanish to english LOL. :)
