Sorry for the impatience!
Heyo again everyone! I'll apologize beforehand for being impatient, because I know that it's only been a few days since I posted, and I'm not sure with what regularity anyone reads this thread. However, I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone has input on how I can merge .2da files and the dialog.tlk file in Jade Empire, either through a program or manually. Again, I'm not very learned when it comes to working with things like that, so a detailed explanation would be much appreciated. Thank you again for reading my post!
