    I played a bit through Mother 3 in Japanese. I downloaded the translation, and applied it to the rom, upon loading the save, the names are all screwed up.

    I know this is because the names were under the old japanese format or whatever. Any idea if it's possible to convert them into English somehow? I tried opening the japanese save file in a hex editor but I didn't get anywhere.

    Seeing how I didn't even download the savegame editor, and I didn't know one existed, I couldn't have read the readme.

    I played the game in Japanese, then used the Japanese sav on the english patched rom.

    But now that I see that there actually is an editor, thanks for the link.

    For fuck's sake, I'm talking about the readme for the translation. Get smart before you get smart.

    How do you sav this on this game? if it doesn't let you do that then the rom is worthless, because when i try to sav it says some error. Also you can't use the realtime sav either, so what the hell.
