I have a question for a specific game, although maybe it's something that applies to many other games. The game is Gundam SEED Destiny: Rengou vs ZAFT II Plus. I opened the ELF file on MadEdit and found the text, so I tried translating a couple of names to see how it fared. Turns out *some* characters are displayed, but not all. In this picture you can see part of "RANDOM PILOT" under three of the character portraits:
where "RANDOM PILOT" was written using SJIS. I think the game allows you to input a custom name for a faceless soldier in Arcade, so I find it weird that, apparently, only a handful of characters are usable in this mode. Has anyone run into a similar problem before?
