Hello again. I successfully modified this game and put the english text in one text line. But find out one issue- I cant insert more characters in line than it was in japanese. Its like limited, and trying to type more erases game code part and makes game unplayable. Do anybody knows how to remove this limits?

The red part is the game code that limits space for text:

Hi! So that's not game code surrounding it; that's more data for this scene. I don't know what all of it does yet, but I can tell you that this entire chunk is compressed and that the decompression subroutine lives at 0x2026190. You'll have to decompress it before you can begin editing it and once it's decompressed we'll have a better idea of what all the parts do which will give us a leg up on editing it.

The other thing you'll need to be thinking about is a font-width hack (half-width or variable-width). There are multiple lines in the game that fill up the entire box and there's no way you're going to be able to fit that in there with full-width characters, so you'll want to investigate that, too.

Looking at the file, I'd guess that the text length byte is right before the text. Since it's all in SHIFT-JIS, it'd be text length * 2, since SHIFT-JIS takes up 2 bytes.

Even if it does work, the text will eventually be cut off due to font sizing.
