Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

I just downloaded the raw text files and have been editing them in Notepad++. I wish I could say I have more done than I do, but I don't. I try to chip away at it as much as I can in my spare time, but I have weekly projects this semester. Slow and steady, I guess. Make sure to get a GitHub account...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

The hosting site seems to be full of malware (my antivirus blocked at least one), and on top of that the download button (the "real one") does nothing for me (though it did say I could have the download if I put a very nice toolbar on my browser fi-- HAH, GET REAL). A quick search indicat...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

Okay here it is, 185 MB of PNGs.

Note, lots of the subtitle images are broken in that they're interlaced.
And a handful of images have the wrong transparency or palette errors.

The real download button is in the top-right.

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

Finally took a look. I'm not seeing any way to make edits. I don't know if you need to give me permissions, or if I have to request them somehow. It's been years since I used github in any way, so I can't remember much about how it works, heh. Normally, the approach is to make a fork (which you've ...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

The form is that of a not entirely trivial decryption. A search for "0x3d09 encryption" brought up one game obfuscation related item in the first few hits, so probably something that has been a trick of the trade, at least in the past. Thanks for pointing that out! This is from the Ys gam...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

Did some more reading of assembly code in how the game loads the .har files and what certain fields are. After two days of full focused attention, I've barely scratched the surface. I don't know what the heck the developers were doing. The below is my transcribed code from assembly to Python: https:...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion book review blog

Thanks for doing this! Your blog is like the #1 stop for helping me navigate the multitude of Evangelion books. And you've done a great job of pointing out books which are subsets of other books, helping me reduce unnecessary duplicates in my collection. And I wouldn't have known the E-Sakuga digita...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Merchandise 2, or, Why Do I Keep Buying Things!?

I've heard that a lot (most? all?) of the Eva cels were stolen. It looks like khara is more in control of their genga and douga this time. Thankfully they made a lot of good stuff like the Groundwork books and the concept art books before the cels disappeared! Though personally I still think Gainax...

Re: [GAME] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

Hello. I played this game quite a bit last summer, and I wanted to see about translating it then. I poked around with a hex editor, found some files with dialogue, and ultimately got nowhere. I worked on the SD Gundam G Gen Overworld translation project, but I wasn't cut out for handling all of tha...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Merchandise 2, or, Why Do I Keep Buying Things!?

Something I realized: All the drawings behind the cels up for sale, are like the exact same ones they used for the Groundwork of Evangelion books. Left is the auction, right is the actual picture from the book. (In the book they seem to have tweaked some drawings, like compositing a hand onto Misato...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Merchandise 2, or, Why Do I Keep Buying Things!?

The cel was from Yahoo auctions, but yeah I saw the Mandarake cels for sale too, but they were live auctions.

Don't have the time to bother with the live auction system.

Thanks for the links - I'll take a look!

The issue above is fixed and most pictures convert correctly: https://i.imgur.com/FXwPxvx.png About a handful (<100) of pictures still have issues: bad transparency, bad colors, bad tiles, or totally different format, compared to the 2000 or so that are fine.

Can you at least update the models to more modern, easily readable formats?

Registered just to post here-- this is such a great project, and I want to thank you whole-heartedly for attempting to take it on!

Also... Those CD's... Can they even run on modern PC's??? Nope, which is another reason the CDs are so cheap. I use a Mac with VMWare running a Windows 95 image. Setting up the Windows 95 image was a pain since it required archaic patches scattered through forums. I wish I took notes on how to buil...

So like a week ago or so I found the game's decompression routine, it's at: 0x08807068 Register a0 is the input buffer a1 is output buffer and a2 is the decompressed size I've been trying to transcribe it since then to run it stand-alone. The algorithm is weird as eff, and as such my transcription h...

I love obtaining 20 year old discs which cost ~$50 at the time at a fraction of the price.


Yes!

Some jackass is selling the same CDs on eBay for like $80 - when I can get it from Japan itself for like $8.
