Yep it's this code that causes it:

Interesting...? Well I could replicate the crash by using that cheat. So until there's evidence of anyone having that crash without said cheat, I'll have a warning up on the download page. Would hate for anyone to be stuck not being able to look at their deck commands forever

I only used weapon and money cheat nothing seems going wrong so far playing with drastic. Still on the first lab tho.

Edit: I guess I found where my game would crash, it's on the command edit screen. And yes if I tried to use in-game save, it would say save is corrupted.

If you look back through the thread, you'll see this Is exactly what we were talking about: the command edit screen

This glitch appears in both the Change battle message and Change name config section while I'm tampering with the button pressing. This seems to be the input that you did that turns into garbage text randomly in this part but unlike the original...when I pressed the X button of DS for Kanji option, the patched rom crashed at random times and this never happen in the original Japanese one

Also...can you tell me at which address of the pointer map where the database content of the game is located? I tried to locate the address to try editing the database content from Japanese into English but Crystal Tile 2 couldn't read the English text you inserted in the game and displayed the text as another hex code again, I'm at lost here

We don't translate SRW sadly. Gideon Zhi also hasn't finish translating both Alpha and SRW 4 yet so there's not much we can do about it

Thank you for this. I was happy that Zoids was back with Zoids Wild and all, but had very little interest in the fighting game. This is more in line with what I was looking for.

I don't understand the wording of your question in regards to "pointer map(s)?" The files containing Zoid database info are here in the Str folder
f3187c1ab40912369c0e865a7dd4f4c7.png

If you're looking for the pointers to where each line of text starts in the database files, then they are at the top of the file , neatly organised into groups of 4 bytes, but with little endian (for example if it says 56 34 21 02 then the place it's pointing to is in fact 02 21 34 56)

If you can't see any of my text in the files it'll be because you have the encoding set to unicode. Just set it to Shift-JIS

Note that even just the character data file is bigger than every other non-database file COMBINED, and then the Zoid data folder is even bigger than that. For something entirely external to the gameplay. If you really want to do it though don't let me stop you

Even though I couldn't get myself into this stuff much because of my parent's discouragement that this kind of activity is a waste of time to them. I still spare a bit of my time to try studying this kind of programming when they weren't looking, I would still try to find a way to do it anyway. It's what I want to try despite zero knowledge, trial and error
