    Hi all!
    I have a small question. In which files or where in ROM is the text of Pokemon B/W????
    I want to change the text and translate it into other languages!
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi there.
    Text files are in .narc format
    You need a few tools:

    Editor.exe (kiwi ds)
    NitroRom explorer 2b
    PPTXT for editing text

    now you wanna go like this:

    -Find your rom.
    -On the internet (google) find the gbatemp pokemon hacking documentation. It contains info on .Narc locations
    -when you know the location of the narc, open the rom with editor.exe
    -locate the file listing a/x/x and check the file for the text.
    -extract.
    -now open pptxt, and choose the narc you just extracted
    -edit away, but don't touch the coded texts.
    -When done, use Nitro rom explorer to replace the narcs inside the rom.
    This is it in a nutshell, Good luck man!

    PPTXT is using QT, so check QT DLL, if you get error, please repale QT DLL from another, or click link on PPTXT Thread on http://projectpokemon.org/forums/showthrea...xt-editing-tool. Font editor from pokemoncomunity is using net framework 3.5 (or 4.0 ). pokemon BW is using UTF - 8. possible added new character .......

    a/0/2/3 (have 5/6 font with 2 pallete) < -- pokemon BW

    anyway pokemon BW using NTFR Type 2, this mean pallete color is not on inside NTFR ...

    you can using crystal tile or tools from: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=219606

    anyway i was already answer a question on : http://projectpokemon.org/forums/showthrea...756-Translation

    you can learn some hacking tools from : http://gbatemp.net/t73394-gbatemp-rom-hack...ion-project-wip , is help me for some problem, but not all.
