A new face on the PS2 Scene, a developer by the name of Sameh, has released a couple of great tools for use with the PS2 and other systems as well. First he brings us Arabization, a project that converts Arabic text into something usable on devices that do not normally support the Arabic language; such as a PS2 for example. Secondly, Sameh gives us SubtitlesConverter; a tool used to convert Arabic subtitles so they [break].[/break]can be used on system that do not support Arabic.
