    To post and image upload it somewhere and when you post it, there's a picture icon on the top, click it and put the url of the image in and done.

    You'll need to program or have a tool programmed for you, specifically for the game in order to fit more text into a dialogue box. That or continue changing pointers, which is the hard and very long way.

    It's not what I would suggest. It's what you would need. You need a program created that will recalculate pointers automatically so you can have more room to work with.

    Track what down? A programmer? You can post an ad on http://www.romhacking.net/helpads or you can ask around and/or learn a programming language for yourself.
    The best advice I can give you is to learn more romhacking. That will get you past quite a few obstacles.

    Hi Endbomb,
    First of all, YOU're the greatest, dude!!!
    Of all the people who love uncharted waters series, you are the only one that has the ability to translate JPN-EN plus hacking!!!

    As one of UW Fans, (dying to play UW4 for years!!! and years to come IF finally for some reason - difficulties being the most obvious - you decide to abandon the project...), I just wanna share an idea to solve your problem :

    i think just to be quick & practical on the project, maybe you should just "shortened" the long translation (from Jap - En)
    and make a guide (i.e a .txt file) alongside your translation just in case people cannot figure out what words they actually are...
    example : NW GME (for New Game)

    Hope this will solve your problem & the translation will finally see the light of day!!!
    Cheers and God blesses you, dude...

    I made an account just now to say good luck to you. Uncharted Waters 2 was one of my childhood favorite games. It'd be amazing to see one of them in english again.

    gonna guess this died? people really need to make a post stating when they stop working on a project, instead of just leaving it hanging.
