...doremi lol.(manipulation!111!!!one!!)

I honestly don't like this P2P program I can barely get it to pop up on any results. And it's been mentioned left & right about the small database or whatever. Small text, not much of a problem.... And the copyright infringement of a name from "Perfect Dark" which was on N64 is really a bother that the FBI will be lurking around the nodes on this thing.

Please; you make it sound as though it's some kind of trade secret.

My guess is that it's more complicated than a CRC check. Probably at least md5 or sha1.

Perhaps.

PD refuses to start if even a single letter or number in the coding is changed.

Meh, CRC spoofing failed.

AFAIK, spoofing an MD5 or SHA1 is next to impossible.

I think I'd be better off isolating whatever prevents modifications to the file and simply remove it. I don't know where to look though.

You guys do already know you can edit the font size by editing the text file "visual" within the folder "mutagen" right?

That option was only recently added to new versions.

Guess it was sort of ironic you guys spent last month trying to change the coding and they simply finally came out with an option to freely edit the program

Unless I am mistaken, there is no way to change the text (and subsequently port it to English) in Perfect Dark using the mutagen file.

I'd hazard a guess in saying that the mutagen folder will have more files in the upcoming versions. I find it rather pointless for a single file to necessitate a completely new folder.

Perhaps a chance at localization will manifest itself in the future when more files are added.

I agree that the creation of a new folder for one file seems rather redundant, but I wonder if a localization file will come to pass. While I hope that it will happen, I'm skeptical due to how the Japanese have reacted to us using their networks in the past.

Japanese: "Damn them gaijins..."
Americans: "LULZ, IM IN UR NETWORK DOWNLOADING UR RAWS..."

Strange... When Perfect Dark updated for me, it automatically created the mutagen folder and the visual.txt file. It also started spitting out this strange error whenever I start it.

As far as my broken 4th year japanese will tell me. It looks like you're missing a crucial file in your "unity folder".
Hopefully someone else here can give a better translation.

Hmm, as far as I can tell (my Japanese isn't very good either - especially not for technical stuff) it's something about downloading being ineffecient until your "unity" (cache) folder contains at least 2 GB, and once you have at least 2 GB in cache downloading what you're actually looking for should become easier.

(Ie. PD downloads lots of stuff, even things you aren't requesting it to download - having it download and cache lots of different things and having them encrypted in cache provides some form of plausible deniability I believe: It's not possible to tell from just what is in the cache what you yourself have wanted to download and what you're just acting as an anonymous carrier for. Of course IANAL and I don't know if that really makes things any better or worse in court if anyone decides to play those games.)

Ah ok, I had just done a clean install on perfect dark (something went wrong previously and it would never boot up properly). I was worried that something messed up again. Thank you for helping me out with that.

Somebody finally put out a "translation tool" for PD...
http://www.madjoki.com/tiedostot/PefectTranslation.rar

One catch, it only works on pop-ups at the moment.

*Mods, I am not linking to the actual P2P program.*
