no prob. Thanks for considering the translation of Xillia and for the information about the coding
Seems like Namco Bandai Prepared the localization version way before they released the game in Japan, but of course they didn't do the job for the translation. It takes at least a year to do so. Now they just need to replace those files with real translated text for their Euro/US version.
I figure out while extracting the main files that the tool prompt for replacing the same file on the target directory. The extractor tool that was created can rename every files with a number. But this way seems weird since we would need to rename them all back and inject them on the main file in the same order and at the same location.
So I thought that maybe all those segmented files can represent one or more larger files segmented in the main container file even for the text ones. Probably to improve memory cache speed and the PS3 might use (marker) to access quickly to the file by loading an adress or an index file that give direction for everything.
My opinion after what I read on Xentax it's that they used the same method with everything. At this address you could see a pics that was rebuild by the dev using each one of those file with their index. The dev have found the way to decipher the texture and to get some sample using three tool and a script. It seems that for every segmented files there is also an index files that give information about the one who follow. This way programmer don't have to make multiple path for the game and use only addresses to access the data.
First It would be really great to localize only the needed one and forget about the others. By grouping text files and ignoring the others we can manage something. TLFILE.TLDAT seems to be the data file and FILEHEADER.TOFHDB might be the main index file and there are probably also other index files inside the data file.
Sorting everything first seems to be the biggest job. Thanks Mamu for your reply and your time on this one too
The great modders is you
I'm just the curious one.
Hope to be understood too. My native language is French.
