Animal Crossing String Table Editor

Game Specific

Description:

ACGC String Table Editor is a utility for reading and editing string table files used by Animal Crossing for the GameCube.

String tables contain the text found throughout the game, such as dialogue, mail, and notice board messages. They can be extracted from the forest_1st.arc and forest_2nd.arc archives on the game disc using a RARC unpacker. Each string table consists of two files: a “data.bin” file and a “data_table.bin” file. When opening one of the tables, you can just specify the “*_data_table.bin” file first and the program will automatically choose the “*_data.bin” file for you.

Table entries consist of plain text with special interpolated codes, denoted by double curly braces, such as {{PAUSE:0×03}}. There are over 120 different codes used to control things like pauses in speech, NPC animations, text colors, and sounds. The entire set of available codes can be viewed in the source code of the application on the GitHub project page.

The application is available as a platform-independent JAR. The source code for this utility is available at https://github.com/jamchamb/ac-editor-stringtables.
