Post Hacking Visual Novels for Translation Quote
Anyone have any info on this, I've looked into it and found programs to extract the text, images and other stuff from some visual novels, but I have not found out how to re-build them.

I know different companies use different engines, so I am just looking for any information. If anyone has info for a particular engine, I will focus on that.

Any hints, rumors, or anything that could potentially lead me down the right path is appreciated (Don't be shy, don't hold back).

Which engine are you looking into?

There is a lot and there are many different ways to translate them.

Per example, for KIRIKIRI you can often just make a patch file which can be placed in the game's directory.

I was looking for info on all engines, so in the future, if I came across a VN that I want to work on, I would have all the tools, however, for now, I would like info on YU-RIS and Crass

Its been a few years since I look into this, however it appears that I can only extract a small amount of text from YU-RIS and not the whole text using YU-RIS text replacer. (for Futaba Channel 2, I couldn't get my hands on 1)

And I was able to extract (what appears to be) all the text from Crass (don't know if this is the name of the engine or the extraction software) but still need a way to re-build it. (for Chibi Pire)

Crass is only a viewer/extraction software like Suzie.

PAC just means it's a "packed" format.

It doesn't look too difficult, looking at the file structure, but it's definitely proprietary.

There is a chinese translation, so maybe you could ask them for any tools.
