Newcomer's Board / Edited Overlay Too Big - NDS TL
« on: April 06, 2012, 08:17:48 pm »
Hey all! I'm Speaker, and I'm fiddling away at a translation of Rockman.EXE: Operate Shooting Star for the DS and learning how to romhack enough for the translation itself. ^^;

I've recently finished translating an overlay full of text. After editing the sinit business in the overlay table to suit the file new size, I went to put it in-- and the game broke, giving me nothing but a white screen.

I've tried a few different things since, like trying to shrink the English overlay down to the Japanese overlay's size-- a shrinking of roughly 1000 characters-- without any success, even when doublechecking what I know about the overlay table pointer table address.

Is there anything I can do? Do I have to skewer the English translation, just to fit it all in?

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! >>;

I'm not asking anyone to write a program for me, now! I know me some Javascript, so learning a new programming language won't be an ungodly hurdle of impossible proportions. xD

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! ^_^
