    Here's my question,

    In Shining Force Feather,

    Shift-Jis normally have 2 Latin alphabet, But it only have the Japanese latin letter (the big one...)
    this is a problem because it make a translation... impossible...

    Does anyone have an idea ? maybe how insert a single byte ASCII font or anything ?

    Here's the problem, just take a look, (i forgot to show a double byte like 0041, 0042 but the result is the same...)

    1. you aligned your font incorrectly
    2. the game natively do not support single byte characters

    again, that's not the problem.

    for example: "The World End With You" has only double byte character ( 0041,0042 ) And it works fine...

    It's probably something in the game that forces the letters to be a certain size, which means you'll have to somehow change that.

    you need an asm programmer to help you with this, if you cannot find one though-
    romhacking.net has gba asm docs on changing in asm the font thing for gba roms
    It might help you but I don't think so as ds stores that stuff in the arm9.bin and you will have an interesting time trying to edit that sigh
    so look there and let me know if it is easy (I could use this too....)

    I'm currently learning ASM hack, And yeah need to implant a VWF into the game to start translation of Tales of the Tempest and Shining Force Feather ^^

    This is the only problem of these 2 games...
    When this problem is gone, it's fearly easy to translate...

    if you get the vwf on shining force feather, i've already got a text extractor, and from what i remember, the insertion will be fairly simple (except that things need to be converted to 2-byte).
    PM me when you're done, and i'll finish the tool. i'll have a look at Tales of the Tempest, too, if you'd like.

    Given the last post was Feb 21st, my guess is: Not good.

    well... i don't know about that...

    how often does psychoblaster post regarding ASH?

    I think the last 2 posts are about a year apart:

    anyway for anyone who actually cares, I will be learning how to do this even if it takes me 5 years, it is a fantastic game, esp. for those fans of the original shining force games..

    Sorry to hear that, I was so hopefuly [​IMG]
    I don't suppose you ever managed to dump the script at all? At least then fans could translate the script, even if we can get it back into the game yet!
