hacking/editing tools that may be useful to you

17.09.2020 - Beta test
Many people ask - "the project is still
in progress?" Yes, of course. As it turns
out, the project turned out to be much bigger
than I thought at the beginning. In addition,
there are daily duties such as work or family.
However, I hope that the first playable version
will appear this year.
Corrections of the last
and largest 1ST_READ.BIN text file are currently
underway. We are also soon starting the first
beta tests of the entire game with the
translation implemented. Now, we have only
problematic audio dialogues scenes, without subtitles
left for translation...
24.04.2020 - Something special!
For all fans. The project is
ongoing. I have already finished editing all the
graphics available in the game. Esperknight
tries to increase the amount of text that can be
included in the dialogues. And finally... a surprise!
RafaGam has prepared a full translation of the
entire game manual. You can download the PDF
from this link. New video test :

Esperknight joined the our team. He is

strongly and manual changes were automated.
