These .mo files should be placed in "locale/XX/LC_MESSAGES/hfworkshop.mo", where "XX" is the respective language code (eg. zh_TW). This "locale" folder should be in the same path as HF Workshop. Chinese players from HK, Taiwan, Singapore... probably need the zh_TW language file. The language is activated based on your OS's regional settings.

HF Workshop is a tool that aims to allow editing HF data. This includes images, sounds, stage files, character data and background data. At the moment of this writing, there is only a console version, very basic, but does the job. There are no tutorials yet, I leave this task to you. The program has not been extensively tested yet so there may be latent bugs, please report any that you find (and make sure it is not your fault).
Please note that with great power comes great responsibility. There are two important things that you must have in consideration if you do not wish to harm the game and its author:
Another thing to consider is that your mods will be uploaded and downloaded on the internet, so you should resize / compress your sounds, images and executables as much as possible for smaller file sizes.
Story editing is a whole chapter of its own and has its own forum here. With the release of HF Workshop, the HF Story Editor program becomes obsolete. There are 2 major reasons for this:
Stories are created using XML format and tutorials can be found in its due forum.
Only MP3 files are allowed, and only sample rates of 5512 Hz, 11025 Hz, 22050 Hz and 44100 Hz (note: sample rates and bit rates are not the same thing). HF Workshop will tell you if the MP3 file that you're trying to replace with doesn't meet the requirements. In this case, you may find a converter online for your MP3 file. It is also recommended that you find an MP3 compressor to reduce the size of your MP3 files.
Only PNG files are supported. It is recommended that you resize and compress your PNG files.
Note: Images get slightly changed during the process of extracting and replacing because of premultiplied alpha.
I don't have any tutorials on this but here's what you have to keep in mind:
You may export the modified Hero Fighter in SWF or EXE formats. When exporting, you'll be given the option to compress the SWF file using Zlib or LZMA algorithms. It is highly recommended that you use one of these because a smaller file size will be easier to transfer on the internet. Zlib compression is the most common, whilst LZMA is more recent and won't work on Flash Player versions below 11.
If you're using a Flash Player projector (i.e. an EXE file) it is recommended that you compress it using UPX.
Last but not least, not all HF exe files work with HF Workshop. The official HF exe from HF installer won't work. The HF portable exe file provided at this site before won't work either. So it is recommended that you use the new HF exe provided here.
You may find it useful to translate HFW's interface to your native language in case your community doesn't know English very well.

Hi MD, I encountered a problem while using HFW.
I followed the guidance of HFW but received an "Error loading zip file!" error.
The following is what happened in the interface of HFW.
Several people in our group(China) have encountered the same problem.

First of all, apologies for the late reply. Remove the quotes around the path and it should work.
Thank you for participating!
