Default .ks?

Well I used ExtractData on http://vndb.org/v6212 and got the scenario in .ks files. How do I change this into actual readable, alterable text files?

well, those are just kirikiri script files, which are plaintext. open them up in your favorite text editor and see if they work.

if you're getting a bunch of garbage instead, do the following:

check the \plugin\ directory of the game for a .tpm file. name can be anything, but the extension is .tpm
using crass, cli: crage -P "X:\path\to\game\archive_to_extract.xp3" -O tpm1="X:\path\to\game\plugin\tpmfile.tpm"

if it hangs, try tpm2 instead of tpm1. if that doesn't work give up because it's probably not worth the trouble

if it works, the extracted script files should no longer be a bunch of garbage text

some games (only himawari, maybe?) disguise the .tpm file as a .xp2 file as well, syntax is the same if this is the case. .tpm file may not be actually in the plugin directory too but i've never seen it elsewhere except in the case of it being an xp2

well it can be any extension as long as its works as its original function...
since the tpm files are actually xp3dec.dll.

I'm so sorry. You've spelled it out for me but being the computer illiterate person that I am, you lost me. I found the file in the plugin folder, and have crass but don't know what crage -P "X:\path\to\game\archive_to_extract.xp3" -O tpm1="X:\path\to\game\plugin\tpmfile.tpm" all that means. Do I use crageGUI?

The GUI for Crage is a busted piece of shit (acknowledged in the documentation, actually), never try to use it for anything.

Run it with those arguments from the command line. If you don't know how to use a CLI (command line interface), Google it or something.

I got it to work but it still ended up as gibberish .ks files.

That means you'll need a hacker to crack it for you, I'm afraid.
