hey denetsu3000 first, much thanks for your reply. i tried your method, but i still do not find any of these strings inside of these files. i have chosen "japense shift jis" as character encoding in firefox.. i'm not able to find even one similair character in there .. thats kinda pretty strange... the next problem is, i've tried like 10 diffrent hex editors, and noone is able to handle those japanase character encoding. anyway, i would probably know a way to work around that problem, but i really have to find the position of the strings in the files. any further help would be great. thanks in advance.
