Kamaitachi kanji ID help
« on: July 31, 2011, 07:57:34 pm »
I've been poking at the Kamaitachi no Yoru GBA ROM on and off lately 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.
In the event of a firestorm, the salad bar will remain open.

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
