View Full Version : True Tears Engine?

2012-03-19, 13:20
After a very, very long search, I finally got the complete version of True Tears for PC and I'm thinking seriously about doing a complete translation of it. Thing is: I don't know which engine it uses to run, since animED and Crass couldn't extract anything, except some few images.

I know True Tears had a demo translation by Insani dated way back in 2006, so there must be some method to translate it. But nevertheless, I don't know which engine does it run, nor what to use to extract/reinsert scripts...can someone lend me a hand?

True Tears Engine: Circus Engine(crx)
AnimED doesn't support Circus Engine
and as for Crass it will work as well as Extractdata

Thats all good luck.

here is an info on circus

Indeed, the .crx files can be extracted with either crass or ExtractData, but all files with this extension are images (background, characters, transparencies and so on). What I really want to find is the script files.

Actually, after searching around a bit, I discovered that the .mes files contains the script, but, needless to say, they are encrypted in their own format and is unsupported to any of the "usual" tools, so I must either create a program that does exactly that (which I don't even know if I can do without a 2-year course of programming) or find one that interpretate it for me and allow me to edit it...and there's where I'm clueless.

Ok I'll give you a hand...
hand over the mes files
it really not that difficult it the same as D.C.
all you need is to use XOR to get a proper text as stated in the topic
send it to my email.
