    Any way to edit subtitles?

    Hi, pals!

    Well, I am making LoK series LP on YouTube and as I am Pole i make it in Polish, but we never got any official nor unofficial translation of the game. As adding Polish subtitles in the post-processing for Soul Reaver is a pain in the ass, I was wondering if maybe there is a way to edit subs within Defiance game files to have it later translated in-game instead of hardsubbing a translation later?

    I'm looking for any replies

    Just open bigfile.dat in any hex-editor and do that.
    I did something similar when corrected russian subs.
    Also I corrected subtitles in SR1 and SR2 too - for SR1 it is needed special script for remaking locals.pc, for SR2 it is needed to use Soul Spiral and hex-editor for rewriting locals.bin.
    For both it is needed to correct the font-substitution table for adding symbols that there are no in latin.
    For SR1 it is easier to localize dialogs by extracting such files from voices.dat and repacking it again.
    Support of LOK-games is the duty of Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics.
