Title: Kamaitachi kanji ID help
Post by: Tomato on July 31, 2011, 07:57:34 pm
I've been poking at the Kamaitachi no Yoru GBA ROM on and off lately (http://matotree.com/2011/07/kamaitachi-no-yoru-translation-stuff/) and finally managed to dump the font, so now I'm building the table. But I just ran across a character that's stumping me because of the small font size:

I've been staring at that kanji for a while. 蟹 is the closest thing I can think of and it fits the order I think, but I wanted to get a second opinion first. Any ideas? I've been looking at it so long it now it looks like a million different things now too, like when you look at clouds  :D

To my eyes, the bottom-most radical appears to be 口. Here's a tip: try finding the kanji in the game's script and work it out from context.

It’s 馨. This table lines up with the SJIS codepoints.

Ooh, awesome, thanks! Knowing that'll help out a lot if I run into any others. That also explains the really bizarre font arrangement, looking back I should've guessed something was up :P
