    Okay. So i'm trying tom mess with a japaneese rom a little bit with hexworkshop. When i change thew view from Ascii to unicode the Kanji text im looking for shows up but, when I copy the kanji and past it somewhere else it is still ascii. Any ideas on how to copy unicode as unicode?

    For actual hex editing I really like hex workshop but for text beyond ASCII it leaves a lot to be desired.

    This seems to be a bug but for a crude workaround if you select what you want- >edit pulldown menu -> copy as -> text it will copy the hex as well but the encoding should stick.
    Dumping text is sometimes a tricky gig but if you just want a little bit of stuff I suggest you look at crystaltile2 at first.
    http://filetrip.net/f23649-CrystalTile2-2010-09-06.html (in the hex window click on the bar above the ASCII readout to change the encoding, if you need a custom one the tbl pulldown menu has what you need.

    I will say though make sure the game is using proper unicode- quite often I see games use unicode text but only single byte control characters which has a habit of tripping up simpler decoders.
