Game Data

This section houses direct exports of texts from the games, including dialogues, menu text, and journal updates. This data has not been altered in any way, and can frequently be messy or difficult to read. Still, it is the best source (short of opening the editor, or playing the game) for quite a bit of information.

While we hope to find a good solution for hosting these in-site, for now they must all be downloaded prior to viewing.
