FE9 Message Tool is a tool that allows you to easily extract and edit the texts from all versions of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. I originally made this since it’s really difficult to get support texts in any other language than english. However when the extraction tool was ready I had enough knowledge about the data format to make a tool that automatically repoints text correctly and here we are: It’s a solution that makes easy text editing for FE9 possible.
You just drag and drop *.m or *.txt files onto the fields and the program decodes or encodes your files that can then be reinserted into the rom with correct repointing. Extracted text looks like this:
[Scene=上下会話][S_Target=0][FaceCommand=S][Face='GREIL' Pos='0'][S_Target=0]So, the sleeping prince awakens![A] [Face='MIST' Pos='1'][S_Target=1]Father![Pause=4] I can't believe you![A][ClearBox]I know those are practice swords, but they're still heavy! You have no right to be so rough on Ike.[A] [S_Target=0]If this is too much for the boy,[Pause=3] he'll never make it as a mercenary.[A] [S_Target=1]But[FreezeMouth]--[UnfreezeMouth][A] [ClearTarget=0][Face='IKE' Pos='0']$Ub$HMist, [Pause=2]you don't have to worry. I told you, I'm fine.[A] [ClearTarget=1][S_Target=1][FaceCommand=S][Face='GREIL' Pos='1']Ha! [Pause=2]You'd better be.[Pause=5] Now grab your sword and get ready![A] [ClearTarget=0][Face='MIST' Pos='0'][S_Target=0]What? [Pause=2]Don't tell me[Pause=3] you're going at it again![Pause=3] But[FreezeMouth]--[UnfreezeMouth][A] [ClearTarget=1][Face='IKE' Pos='1'][S_Target=1]Just until I land a single blow.[Pause=4] I'm not giving up until I can get one good hit in on Father.[A] [ClearTarget=0][S_Target=0][FaceCommand=S][Face='GREIL' Pos='0'][S_Target=0]I like your resolve, Ike.[Pause=4] But [Pause=2]it takes more than a strong will to[FreezeMouth]... [UnfreezeMouth][Pause=4]Hm?[A][X]
I formatted the commands similiar to how Nintenlord handled text commands. If you need any help or have suggestions for the tool just let me know. Although I developed this for myself I think it could be pretty useful if anybody wants to make a FE9 hack.
