You are playing a foreign Sro (vSro, cSro...) and are annoyed because you cant read anything?
Here is the Solution: Pk2Extractor Special Edition
What it is:
Basicly its a simple Pk2 extractor. You can open (almost) any pk2 file and extract its content.
But there are some specials:
Build In DDJ viewer
If you highlight a DDJ file (Graphic format Sro uses) it will instantly show you the picture at the form.
You can also export it as bmp via "Save Image"
All to English Patch
This extractor has the ability to patch evry Sro to English automaticly and (by now) undetectable.
All you have to do is:
1)Put this extractor in Silkroad directory
2)Run it and open Media.pk2 of the Sro you want to patch
3)Press "English Patch"
4)Enjoy game in English
This Patch makes a backup of all modified files in a subfolder of the folder of the Pk2. These are overwritten without being asked if you apply this patch again!!!
Simply extract the file to your Silkroad directory.
This is important for the English patch!
How to use
Just press 'Open Pk2' and choose a pk2 to open.
'Extract' saves the current selected file to a folder you choose.
'Save Image' extracts the current selected DDJ and saves it as a bmp
'English Patch' self explaining
Q1) Can i extract multiple files/folders at once?
A1) No. Folder extraction is currently not supported
Q2) Can i import files with this tool?
A2) No, not included yet
Q3) It gives me an error 'Failed to import xxx'
A3) Make sure, if this programm is in a Sro Folder AND Sro is currently not running since Sro locks the pk2 files.
Q4) I used english patch but game is still in foreign language
A4) Try again and check for errors!
Q5) Some parts of the game are still in foreign language.
A5) Some specific textes are not available in english. This is a matter of Sro with an uncomplete translation table. This tool can't translate them. But this just affects very less parts like a few Guide messages.
Q6) Can i get banned or get dc using this?
A6) By now some Silkroads just protects its client. The pk2 files are not checked. So currently it's save to use and i see no reason why this should change
Q7) It doesn't work (Language not changed or Showing Errors while trying to patch)
A7) Check if you opened Media.pk2 and EVRY Sro is closed!
If it is still not working make a screenshot from non translated text (e.g. Items) and upload this 3 files:
- type.txt and serverdep/silkroad/textdata/textzonename.txt extracted from media.pk2 (e.g. use my extractor)
