    So, I want to translate Nobunaga's Ambition for the DS. (Nobunaga no Yabou DS)
    I've tried about everything detailed on romhacking.net, but can't get a relative search to work, nor can I get a sjis.tbl to make things legible.

    So, what am I doing wrong?
    What's the first step in getting a working translation table for this game?
    Is there a nice person that would like to teach me?

    Thanks greatly.

    You have to consider the possiblity that the text is compressed. It helps if you can find the font image first. If it's a NTFR file, you can be pretty sure a shift JIS table is going to work.

    read the faqs here on the wiki of gbatemp...

    also give crystaltile2 a try
    also try looking up a couple a tables .tbl
    if you need an example pm me I have about a dozen or so from other peoples projects

    okay you need the table to make the script visible so you can dump the script and then translate it so you can reinsert it back where you got it from
    did you follow that if not you didn't read everything you needed to

    if you still need more help post again
