    ????
    Ya that is "items" in japanese. And... i found nothing. I need help... plz


    I don't know stick one about editing ROMs, but your katakana-English is incorrect.

    It's ???? (aitemu)
    not what you have (aetemu).

    At least according to every game I have ever played.

    Perhaps that is your problem in finding the text?

    As I've posted a few times now and you seem to just overlook them, this game uses sjis i found アイテム in like 10 seconds using an sjis table file. It can be located at 0x00091F54 in the nds rom

    That address is from opening the whole rom in a hex editor, you can workout the file by comparing the address in the rom with the file address in NDSHeader.

    Actually, looking at the menu itself i'd say that would be stored as an image.

    As I've said you need japanese support on your computer iirc you need the original xp install disk. To put in more text than there is space you'll need to workout how the game points to the text than repoint it to a different position in the file, on this i cannot help as it changes from game to game, just hope its something easy. Goodluck.

    really I will say it again, you'll fail if you don't build up some skills first.

    You build up skills by hacking games for simpler systems such as the nes/snes and reading the tutorials from romhacking.net
