I spent the last few days learning how to hack GB/C games, for a possible translation of Choro Q GB. Today I finally managed to write the dialogue in 3 lines instead of the original 2:


But now I realize that there's so little VRAM space that this was just a waste of time:


There's 25 tiles available in total. You can use 13 in each line at maximum, so having 3 lines is a bit useless... :-\

I think I could get more space by moving things around in VRAM, but that looks very complicated and this game is probably not worth the effort. :P

You could do what Pok√©mon Trading Card game did and use a small fixed width font.  It worked well and allowed more letters to be used on screen.

How playable is that? I never played the game (I might whenever it gets released on 3DS here) but I can only imagine that font giving me a headache if I tried to play the game on a real GBC. :P

Expanded menus, mostly from today's stream.
