    you make the most helpless posts which in my eyes seems as if you are only trying to increase your post count.
    the only post i've seen was "good luck" or anythiing that actually is NOT MOTIVATIONAL.
    say you were doing a math project and you needed help from your teacher. and say your teacher says "good luck"
    does that sound motivational to you? well probably not. So if you are not going to help valyr, then just shut up.

    @valyr
    i have once looked inside this game, but I think the menu were all graphics, not texts. So if the extensions of the graphic files are commonly known, then it shouldn't be that hard. (or maybe the texts were compressed)
    I remember I had a hard time trying to find texts in the ROM, so if it's how i remember, the texts are all compressed, or either are graphics.

    It has been some time since I looked in the ROM but I am 100% sure that the menu is done by either compressed texts or graphics.

    @ psychoblaster the txt isnt compressed at all from what ive seen
    the menu is text and graphics both and they are packed into two
    arc files in the bui folder but are easily accessable without unpacking said files

    @ noitora
    the graphics are viewable/editable from inside the .arc files with tiled at gba4bpp
    and the text is easy to find/edit with windhex, i just need to make a little more space for some
    of the text and some of the graphics tiles seem to be used in 2 or 3 different button graphics
    which are all different buttons

    so you just need to edit the pointers...there are some documents about pointers on romhacking.net check them out.

    I started to translate this game a while back not gort the menus done but I do have all of the skills, magic, abilities done and most of the items.

    Not started the script though as it wouldn't let you increase it without messing up
