    I would really like to fix the font in Phantasy Star 0 but the font file (.NFTR) is encrypted like most of the other files (so I have been told). Does anyone know anything about the encryption? I don't even know where to begin.

    It was dumped today, and you expect the internal files to be decrypted?
    Although I do agree the game needs a SERIOUS font change.

    The Japanese release has been out for nearly a year.

    I was looking at the font for this too, but yeah, not using NFTR font format.

    This, or a modified version of it (to fit) would look really nice I'd bet:

    If anyone can get the format editable, I can definitely whip something up.

    You guys are right. I'n SICK of DS ganes using that stupid font. (Devil Survivor and Luninous Arc 2 both use it, I've noticed).
    I think an online petition night actually work since the font just sucks and it can't be too expensive for the conpanies to buy/nake a new one.

    Dark Spire uses the same font and there's a font replacement patch for that, so... ?

    This game really needs a font change, but the default font is still readable though.

    Font is one of the reasons I've pretty much the reason why I've given up playing the game.

    Ah, well, I guess I'm out of luck either way, I'll need a real cart if I want to play multiplayer [​IMG]

    I managed to extract the font from the ram but as i can see the ZPR files are not just encrypted but also compressed (or maybe just compressed..). Anyway, the NFTR file was different from usual because it has ram pointers. I managed to modify them by hand and here's the result:

    DarthNemesis, you might want to add a feature to your ntfr editor. If the pointer of each field (CMAP HWCD etc.) is beyond EOF you could ask for an integer to subtract so that it can work with ram-pointers too
