Converting kanji tiles to characters/codes
« on: May 19, 2014, 03:24:17 pm »
I'm working with Ragnacenty/Crusader of Centy/Soleil (Sega Megadrive/Genesis) to extract the script, but I need the codes/chars from the japanese font to create the japanese table.

This is the font (real size):


This is what I've done:
Code: [Select]
 、。,.・:;?!゛゜´`ー●
○/*=0123456789AB
CDEFGHIJKLMNOPQR
STUVWXYZabcdefgh
ijklmnopqrstuvwx
yzぁあぃいぅうぇえぉおかがきぎ
くぐけげこごさざしじすずせぜそぞ
ただちぢつづてでとどなにぬねのは
ばぱひびぴふぶぷへべぺほぼぽまみ
むめもゃやゅゆょよらりるれろわを
んァアィイゥウェエォオカガキギク
グケゲコゴサザシジスズセゼソゾタ
ダチヂツヅテデトドナニヌネノハバ
パヒビピフブプヘベペホボポマミム
メモャヤュユョヨラリルレロワヲン
※「♂♀≠@¥℃〆§$£」っッ# <--- char miss
↑↓…

Any help to complete the font is welcome.

Hi Cue,

Just to clarify: do you want someone to write here the Japanese characters from the image, in the same order? Or something else?

I think these are all. I'll check them again tonight or whenever I have a bit more time.

Does there exist an OCR software that could automatize this kind of thing ?

Probably with the script extracted only I can be really sure about some kanjis, since that font is so small...  :'(

This is what I dumped, except the korean version:

It seems that all translations, except the Japanese, have lot of bugs :(

Thanks!

They are claiming "poor results", and for once, the ad tells the truth :)

Care to elaborate on that? :)
I thought the only difference was the bigger naming screen (3 pages) and the text box no longer being black and opaque. (with a double-width Fixed-width font)
And the Korean version is almost the same as the Japanese one.
Wasn't aware of there being any bugs.

You can compare the versions to see lot of bugs, typos, ...

Oh, the typos :P
But the European English version managed to be both uncensored (regarding religious references) and relatively typo-free.
I agree however with you on the American, French and Spanish ones (since I tried those).

I thought you meant game-breaking bugs and you wanted to retranslate it using the Japanese version :P

Thank you! I checked all the ~380 kanji with the script and found these mistakes:

周 -> 間
鋼 -> 銅
育 -> 青
清 -> 消
証 -> 誕

This should be the final 100% correct table:

French one was pretty fine for the time of it's release (not to mention localized games were pretty rare), no to mention there were more limited than romhackers (contrary to romhackers which can extend roms pretty easily, the same in a catridge meant "more costs for a bigger eeprom").
