So I've been trying some Chinese Mental Omega mods and the one I'm playing is called Dark Ritual. But I cannot enjoy the game fully when I do not understand the language, so I wanted to attract the .csf files from the expandmo.mix files in their game files to translate the Chinese text into English.

The problem is here: I "unprotected" those expandmo.mix files, but when I opened them by XCC Mixer, it crashes (specifically, it only crashes when I open the expandmo.mix files from Dark Ritual, it works normally when I open files from the original Mental Omega).

I even tried XCC Mix Editor, but this error occurs: "Out of memory" and again, only when I open files from Dark Ritual.

How can I solve this?

From what I had heard before, some modders has developed some kind of "anti-unprotection" measure. I'm not sure if the one you are referring to is one of those, but I think you'd better try to contact the author and ask if he could make one for you.

I think they changed the MIX format itself; it'd explain why they package the EXE with the mod, whereas Mental Omega and the like still rely on the player having the original standard YR 1.001

Or it might be related to that Chinese/Hacked Ares.

Ask tomsons and CCHyper.
