Need help on hacking dialogue in Final Fantasy 5
« on: March 28, 2015, 09:19:07 pm »
I need to edit some dialogue in a couple scenes in order to ask a girl to prom using her favorite game. Was wondering how to go about doing it. I am quite computer savvy so I understand how to edit Hex and stuff, but I am clueless how to change dialogue. If anyone could provide what programs they use and how they do it I would owe the world to you.
Thanks in advance!
So far trying to find this anywhere is making me so frustrated  :banghead:

Which system are you trying to hack? FF5 was released on several different systems.

Edit-
Well I figured out the SNES one, it's really easy. Normally I'd try to get you to figure it out yourself, I'll make an exception for your case :)
If the SNES one is the one you want to edit then I can post a table for you to edit the text.

Did the fan translation team's script tools ever get released? FF3usME and FF4kster are really popular on here, and Coilsnake dumps EarthBound's script into editable text files that get re-inserted into the ROM, but FF5 doesn't have any tools like that (besides hex editing and manually changing pointers, of course).
I'd love to make a "SNES version with the GBA retranslation" hack. FF3usME allows for a really long script with ROM expansion, I bet it's possible with this game as well!

Hi guys,

i have release a german translation of the game and the complete text is umcompressed.

For this we use the english translation (Final Fantasy V (J) [T+Eng1.10_RPGe]) and the german gba script.

The pointer (24bit) start at pc 2013F0 and the first text at pc: 210000 -> "           Nothing happened./00"


Table: Please ignore the german chars
