    Hi all,
    My name is kenghot my site is www.kenghot.com, I come from small country "Thailand". I just completed 100% for ff3 nds translation to my own language (Thai) and released it to Thai's gamer on 11/1/2006 .
    It quite successful for this project. So I need to do next project and I've plan to translate FF5 or FF6 on GBA . After I start hacking gba rom , i've found that it's more difficult than NDS . So, Anybody would tell me , where should i start or what exactly i need to know for hacking GBA rom?

    Best Regard,
    Kenghot

    FFIII and both FFVA/FFVIA are coming out REALLY soon... there's no reason why anyone should be worrying about an english patch at this point..

    I'll need to swallow my heart now. I thought it would be an English translation. Good work though!!!

    Impressive work there, I am sure the fine people at http://www.romhacking.net/ would be happy to hear about this too.

    As for GBA roms they are slightly different to DS in that the pointers in FF3 are contained within the files the text is in whereas the GBA pointers are the byte address of the file with a 08 or 09 (depending on whether the address is in the first 16 or last 16 megs of the file).
    I looked briefly at the Japanese FF5 rom the other day and the graphics were not viewable in a tile editor meaning they were likely compressed and it is a good bet the text will be too. Some may say I hope you know ARM7 ASM but if you use VBA-SDL you may be able to trace the decompression routine(s) (especially if they are straight BIOS calls) and then implement your own version.
    Other than that it will be buisness as usual: find the and font, make a new one and replace it, make a table, dump the text, translate, reinsert, repoint, translate any graphics you find.
    I wrote up a document on GB/DS rom hacking a little while back and made a preview release here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=36860 the final version is a little while away but it should help a little.

    This has got to be possibly the fastest 100% fan base translation ever made.

    Great work.
