Hey there! I'm Speaker, and I began work on translating Rockman.EXE: Operate Shooting Star roughly two weeks ago.
This is my first time romhacking OR translating much of anything, but with the leftover materials and advice of the game's previous translator, I've been able to get off the ground and can now edit both the text and graphics of the game at a rather steady pace. xD
Editing text manually, however, is quickly becoming a massive chore. For all it's very much doable, the thought of being able to pull text out and put it back without running through text pointers in is very enticing! >>;
What I'd like is a push in the right direction-- to know what language I should be trying to pick up, to know of any pre-existing tutorials or the like that might be lying around (especially given my editing knowledge's limited to playing with hexadecimal in the Overlays, and I wouldn't know how to tell a program to look and edit accordingly without, uh, knowing how to tell it to look and edit accordingly), or anything off the top of anyone's head that might be of any help!
Thanks in advance for any and all help! ^_^
