    Hihi ^^ I've seen some translators of different games and im wondering if someone could help me starting a simple translation just for the mechas, pilots, menus and those stuff for this game...

    Most of the ppl doesnt care that much about the plot of the game so translating those aspects for helping any casual player playing it for a while would be quite enough.

    What im here asking is that if someone could start like telling me what program to use... maybe giving me a table or some tips to make the table and maybe a katakana hex table or something so i could start checking it by myself or maybe a translation or something ^^

    thanks ^^

    P.S: Sry if im asking too much but is my first time trying something like this ^^

    I knew I had looked at this rom before. It is one of the harder roms as it only contains a few files (at lot of roms have everything nicely divided up and even named nicely). I am willing to bet the font is 16bit and probably contains more than a handful of kanji.

    Anyhow in the add01dat.bin there is a bunch of 4bit per pixel GBA format images you can view with a tile editor like:

    or

    I made some documents a while back: http://www.4shared.com/file/3636881/1f5f088d and I hope to finish them soon.

    deufeufeu is making some documents as well:

    Also gamefaqs comes through with some stuff:
