    So as you probably already know, I've been busy at work on the SMTIVFinal translation.
    I've been messing around with the files and I found the way the dialogue was structured and made a program to manipulate it. It's a little early in build right now and it has trouble with some special characters, but it'll most likely let you know if the sentence does contain special characters (doesn't work in all cases).

    The way this works is that in takes in all the Lengths and Position of each individual sentence.

    01 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 4E 02 00 00 00 00 00 00

    where the 5th byte is the length and the 9th - 10th bytes are the position (in little-endian).
    I haven't completely tested this, but it should work for the most part.
    I'll also include the source for anyone who wants to look.
    This is my first C# project so I apologise for the messiness and no comments as well aha.

    It's not complete, it messes up at NewLines and can't recognize a few other special characters
