QUESTION: Do any of my followers speak Japanese?

One of the ideas I’ve been considering regarding my difficulties with the CLZ format is to try and contact the original developers and see if they’re willing to share any details of the file format.

There are two main challenges that this approach poses:

  1. The developers could request the mod to be shut down.
  2. I don’t speak Japanese, which is the language of the original developers at Marvelous

I could write up an email of what to ask them, but I’d like to have it translated better than Google Translate.

I’m going to try looking on some game hack forums to see if I can find anyone else with experience in decompressing game files first.

This would be more of a last resort.

[Any input would be greatly appreciated.]
