    ok i fixed the you died screem heard from wrong character when you select no in retry screen when jap bin is used,:) guess what those voices were not in voice.afs. but in adv.afs. thats better voice.afs is language specific in your file the voices are different a file_3 on english afs could be a file_6 on spanish and file_5 on francais. adv.afs is for all pal languages. its one adv.afs for both disks. also on extracted adv.afs the file_3 is the main menu showing the 3 characters. file_4 is the voice that saying resident evil. i had tried in the past to change the file_3 from ps2 to have a the main menu with the green x but pvr is uncompatible

    In my version all that I have already done :)
    The textures of ps2 are tim2, you must extract what you need and pass it bmp, then with winpvr you can give it the pvr format.

    Note: Dreamcast textures are 8bpp and 4bpp, to pass bmp to this pvr format you need to create bmp low color, 256 colors in some 16 colors in others

    Hi, congratulations for all you have done :)
    I'm sorry it's my turn to have some time missing for the project. But I'm still follow it, for sure.

    I notice the english font and the european font are not exactly the same :
    https://assemblergames.com/attachments/Στιγμιότυπο-οθόνης-31-png.36729/

    And for other european langages :
    https://ibb.co/9hNsRpx

    The letters are smaller and the english font seems to be more complex and need an other VWF access, I'll compare the euro version, thanks to pitito to have located the constant size. Or maybe @truemaster1 you can import the non english euro font in the system.afs ?

    all 3 of us now use jap bin, we all have the documents in japanese. all pal and us version have the texts for the documents in sysmes.ald the 1st and second japan version have them in 1st bin their sysmes.ald are 18mb where pal versions have them 83-84mb.two ways to fix it i belive 1 change the correct address in jap bin to look for the documents texts in sysmes.ald instead of the 1st it self. the second one is more tricky and hope this way is not the only one @yzb37859365 show a page before the values that correspond to letters numbers symbols etc we can change the japan texts with an english ones via hex edit this method will be time consuming and ther is a chance that the replacement hexes are biger than one need to replace

    That is the problem, that I don't find that value to edit it according to the European version. Maybe this one with a different value
    You can use the original jap bin, or the one edited by fafadou
    and here I leave you the original Spanish pal
    The changes have to be made in the bin jap, so that you find the right places in the pal texture
    I pass the original Spanish code veronica bin in case you need it

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/qo5p9e78ict8xxg/1ST_READ.BIN/file

    And original jap code verónica complete edition

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/tf8joft4w9md3xj/1ST_READjap.BIN/file

    Here you have my afs in Spanish

    With my afs you no longer need ps2 version, just replace the pvr in your language.

    For the main menu you must edit the texture for French language you can take the main texture of the original French version and edit the new things, since the ps2 version does not bring the difficulty selection
