    I'm in process of translating a game - ML: BiS - and I need to insert few stressed letters.

    I tried looking for the font in Crystal Tile, but all I see are garbled pixels...

    Where do I need to look for the font?

    Anyone?

    I unpacked the rom, there's the Font folder and StatFontSet.dat file.
    Any way to edit it?

    He's probably translating it to some language that didn't get a translation.

    The in-game text is image based in DS games, that's all I know.
    You'll probably have to import each letter/character.

    Ok, fine, but how am I susposed to open the DS rom (or, the fonts file) so I can edit it?
    If it would be an .ntfr file, It wouldn't be a problem, but it's just a common dat file...
