    EcchiOujisama got a reaction from droganpc in Eiyuu*Senki GOLD Help/Info Thread   
    As Eiyuu*Senki and Eiyuu*Senki GOLD are completely different games, I thought I'd make a separate thread so there is no confusion as to which game is being discussed.  
    First off, if you have a moderate amount of Japanese, as in have watched anime/played galge for a years, you'll find that the interface patch is enough to get you through the game and not miss as much as you'd think.  If you've trying to learn kanji, reading along as the lines are spoken is helping to take me from "sounding out" words in kana and kanji to seeing whole words as I do in English.  If you played and liked the first one, the lack of a full translation at this time isn't the hurdle to enjoying the story you might think. 
    The help/info thread on Bunny Black was a great asset to me when making my way through that game, so I thought I'd start something similar for Eiyuu*Senki GOLD, although you shouldn't expect this post to have as much info as the amazing OP did there.  I'm still making my way through this one.  I have a few things to share that might help people as they struggle through it. (^_-)
    Q:(Insert area here) is too hard and I get creamed right away!
    A:I hit a few of these snags in the first game.  The easiest/cheapest way to deal with this is to take the 1 action every 5 turns approach.  Accumulate as much money as possible and constantly pour it into more troops for your core 6 characters.  Using this approach I've steamrolled just about everything in my path in the main quest up until this point, with only the EU, Babylon and Dark Area to complete.  I saved up all of my events and ran through them 1 every 5 turns before my imminent invasion of the EU and now have 6 characters over 20000 troops and close to 20 million gold on hand.
    Q:Why can't I conquer Irkukst no matter how much I attack it?
    A:Do the character events you have stockpiled.  Eventually you'll get a mission in Sendai that will come up with a plan to deal with this.
    Q:Why can't I invade the EU?
    A:Same as a above, when the story progresses enough you will get an event in Sendai.
    Q:What is the best way to get the Strategy King achievement?
    A:You can do what I did and go balls to the wall for the first 50 actions of the game, which gets difficult in a few points, or save up a bunch of events with the girls and then run through them all when not at war with anyone.  This one seems to be a bit on an anomoly, as I used up all of my action points on 50 straight turns just to make sure I got it, and the graphic never appeared.    
    I also have a few questions if anyone would be kind enough to help me out. (^_^)
    On the 6th floor of Shambala you fight 6 Montezumas with 333,333 HP each.  How are you supposed to beat them in 50 turns?  I can't believe that you're supposed to waste enough time to get 6 characters 300k+ troops each.
    What's the deal with Wakuwaku?  When I pick one of them I get a super easy fight, nothing happens and the mission will repeat like that forever.
    If you keep a hero in New Game+, do they keep the HP they gained during previous runs of the game?  And does the Seiso patch give you option to keep Seiso in NG+?
    And for all off you hackers out there, create a patch that will let me trade Eiyuu*Senki Benkei for MajiKoi Benkei. (^_^)

    Some more progress.
    I patched RioX with ghidra so that it is able to perform Heuristic scan on newer .rio file from photonmelodies.
    Unfortunately it still can't extract the english text as it seems to be performing some encoding conversions.
    Probably some japanese encoding to Unicode. The text in english version is already unicode encoded so it tries to decode unicode with some japanese encoding, which obviously fails for most of the strings(Just a guess. I don't know how its doing it exactly).

    I am not that good at patching binaries so it will be hard to patch those encoding conversions but i will still try.
    Luckily I did get the offsets from RioX that indicate where the text is stored. I am not sure how to use them though as I said before the text doesn't seem to be plaintext

    photonmelodies11.rio: https://del.dog/inesettogr.txt
    photonmelodies11.rio.003: https://del.dog/pungumobot.txt

    The text scripts in photonmelodies11.rio are probably for all 3 games. If we assume the number of scripts to be the same as the Jap version I would expect ~100+ scripts for Altered Fable

    "photonmelodies11.rio" seems to have altered fable data
    "photonmelodies11.rio.002" seems to have bg, chara frames and menu items
    "photonmelodies11.rio.003" also seems to have altered fable data
    "photonmelodies11.rio.004" seems to be Alternative Chronicles

    Better tools seem to be the need of the hour along with veteran fan translators who have worked with age vns.
    Here's the patched RioX(Won't work with older games, I only patched it to be working with eng photonmelodies):  https://gofile.io/d/nLT4fF

    Japanese text extracted from Altered Fable.

    jap_ruo seems to be menu/error related stuff
    You are better off translating it.

    I can't extract photonmelodies with the ancient riox tool(Kind of expected but kek) or else I would have tried to patch jap AlteredFable myself.
    If anyone can extract the english text I can try creating a 1:1 <Jap, Eng> Map.
    The r*trd engine seems to be using VMWare images for some reason?
    No plaintext either.
    I asked the author of RioX for its source code but I don't really expect a reply from them.

    EDIT: Sent you CG dump of altered fable to your email.

    Not going to comment on any of the other parts or whether this seems like a workable idea in general, but you should run waifu2x-caffe locally on your own to process as many images with as crazy parameters as you want, rather than burden a public website with the load.

    I would quite honestly read a version with a lower quality TL than a version with cut content.
    I'm just not very interested in supporting a company that shows so little interest in bringing the original version over. Might end up reading the Japanese instead though, if the TL really is terrible, like I'm doing with ChuSinGura atm.

    Nothing about it weirded me out.  Shiroganes response was completely logical, regardless of your country.
     
    If your best friend, a guy, suddenly became a girl overnight, just like that, no lead up to it, you just woke up, and he was a girl now, you would not be a little put-off?  That's all Shirogane is. As for Steins;gate, it's not transphobic at all. It's logical. If you're not gay or bisexual, it means you're not attracted to men...doesn't make you an awful person, just like being gay or bisexual doesn't make you an awful person either.  It's perfectly fine for gay people to have Gay Only bars, but try pulling a straight only bar, and you'll get a law-suit so fast. It's pretty unfair, honestly.
     
    I guess you can call me transphobic, but if my best friend, who is a guy, became a woman and suddenly the prospect of being sexually attracted to them arose, yeah, I'd be freaked out.

    No doubt. Your conversation sucks several times over. Just how many times over does it suck? This many.
