Hey, so... does anyone have the full English script to the game, or know how to extract it?

I used to know how to do this, and I actually already have the full Japanese script dump. (Plus I know where some other script dumps are for the Sega CD games.) But I'm coming up short on the English scripts for the Playstation games.

...Alun? =D KF

I've tried searching for them in the past, but I've never found it for SSSC. (I think I found them for TSS and EB.)

I got as far as finding a few possible tools for doing the dump myself, but I got swamped with work at that time and didn't continue. Here it is: https://github.com/cebix/psximager

I don't know of any offhand, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. I've only transcribed bits I found particularly interesting though. Of course, if you find something, please let me know. =) Someday I would love to have a table of the Japanese, SSSC, LL, and SSH versions of each line, because I'm ridiculously nerdy like that.

I should note that Artemio Urbina's dumps for the SCD games, while very useful, are not quite complete. I noticed this when I was trying to format the TSS script a little more formally (and track who says what, and when, which is kind of an ambitious undertaking) and was looking at the files with a hex editor. Sometimes some lines got missed by whatever he used. Not many. I only got as far as Saith with that effort and that was years ago, so I can't tell you what was missing. (I know you weren't asking about these, just thought I'd mention.)

Barring an actual text dump from the game files, you could do worse than to read a Gamefaqs transcription, I suppose: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/197808-lunar ... faqs/62187

Ah yeah, I need the actual game script file. Hm, I'm actually wondering where or from whom I got the Japanese script file (...I don't always keep track of these things...).

...actually Temzin I could've sworn it was you who sent me the JP text file...? KF

I'm pretty sure it was me, since I have the SSS Japanese text.

Supper's wdtools repository has a tool to extract text from SSSC on PS1: https://github.com/suppertails66/wdtool ... ss_txt.cpp It'd take a bit of work to get the output in a more convenient format, but it's definitely doable.

Thanks for the link! I'll have to ask my husband to work with me on that one, though it looks pretty straightforward. I can almost understand what's going on there but half a college semester of C 25 years ago is not quite enough. :)

You do? If I had that, it would make it so much easier to test my hypothesis that there is additional dialog in the Blue Dragon Cave in Harmony of Silver Star!

But considering that I've wondered about it for years and never tried to check, and that my PSP makes such horrible noises that I get kicked out of the living room when I run it, I don't want to oversell myself. :mrgreen:
