While bored at work I started parsing my NDS japanese game collection and naturally take a look at the file structure. It didn't take long to find a game that had something strange: apparently no font. The game I am talking about is Kenshuui Tendo Dokuta (Japan); a sort of Trauma Center Clone. It's looking like this game has sections of text compressed in one file. This file contains a NCLR/NCGR and many NSCRs all without header and pointers. The NCGR is all letters that are needed for that section of text only and there is a NSCR for each screen of text. Here a pic of the first text screen and the NCGR (note the か that is reused): Do you have some other japanese programming crazyness to share??
