The MES Editor is now at v0.2 [link] and now includes export features.
With this, I’ve been able to fully dump all of the dialogue from AWL. [link]
The dialogue files can be viewed for anyone interested. [link].
The only things that aren’t dumped from AWL are some kanji characters that haven’t been added to the tool yet. But this is being worked on. I’ve been progressing through each of the characters from the font texture.
The red characters are those that I haven’t been able to identify. If anyone knows what they are, please let me know so we can add them to the program.
I’ve just broken the AnWL hex cipher, so I should hopefully be able to coordinate with Harrison to create an alternate version of the Editor for AnWL MES files.
If you notice any dialogue lines in-game that need to be changed, please let me know so I can find and edit them.
I’ll start by looking for individual gender identifiers (he/she, husband/wife, boy/girl. mom/dad, etc) and will go from there. But it will likely be a little slow without full context of the conversations.
I’ve had a good amount of success with Harrison’s MES Editor [v0.1 stable]
I’ve set up a google doc [link] where I’ve been dumping all of the decrypted tool.
I’ll continue dumping messages manually and then will look into adjusting dialogue (i.e. pronouns, etc) for the mod once all of the scripts are in one place
I’ve made the google doc link editable (I have a seperate version for myself as a backup), so if you want to use the tool and contribute, it would be extremekly appreciated.
Also, if you can find any areas of dialogue in either game that will require adjusting for the Proud Life mod, please let me know so I can make a note of it.
Conversations with Harrison have been very productive around the tool. Currently, he’s updating the tool with addition characters (symbols, kanji, etc.), as well as refactoring chunks of the code. Most excitingly, the new development version seems to allow dumping of full decrypted output to a file, which will make things a lot easier rather than me copy/pasting each individual message. Currently this new version is still under development and won’t really display what you want it to. But it should be ready in the coming weeks.
