    Hi guys, I'm a soon to be fan of Disgaea, I have yet to play any of them but there's a group who are translating the JAPANESE VERSION to English by:

    Converting S-JIS to ANSI

    the problem is, it's duplicating letters e.g

    the word 'helpful' would come out as 'hellppfuulll'

    Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    thanks!

    ANSI =/= ASCII

    And can you show us what you're talking about ? because Disgaea came out in English for the DS so...

    Yeah, Disgaea DS is already in English. There's no reason to even translate the Japanese version... Unless there's another Disgaea DS I don't know about.

    Shift JIS if for japanese character map, if you want translate it you just convert them into UTF-8 or unicode, ansi is not compatible with shift-JIS , why? because shift JIS is japanese character and ansi is just for roman character only is not include a asian character map... so ANSI =/= Shift JIS......

    ansi is just need 1 byte only and shift JIS is need 2 byte.

    see on http://www.unicode.org/ ...
