You may also want to ask Gideon Zhi about it, since it was one of his projects I believe (dunno how far he got though). Maybe he can prod you in the right direction.
Thanks, I've messaged him on twitter (I hope he doesnt mind.. )
The first option in the list, does it start with 'F1 00' as well, or just '00'?
You'll have to play around with it, trying different starting points until you find the pointer table. 'F1' and '00' might be a terminating byte, a starting point, or something else entirely.
I was remembering it wrong, sorry. It's actually like this:
0040 40F5 FF00 (I dont know if the 0040 40F5 is actually anything important, but it seems to appear a lot) Then the word, which is 0063 (SAサ) 005B (Uウ) 0088 (Nン) 00A1(DOド) Then it ends with 00F1 FF00 , then the next word starts.
EDIT: So, made some progress!

I've tried to find the pointers but I'm having no luck at all. I had to give the sound option more space for the word stereo so I moved the next set of hex data over, losing some character space in the backup dialogue box. But it of course means the backup option no longer works.
The other option is editing the character tiles and using #### hexs for characters, basically doubling the character space available, kinda.

So I learned something new about how it works with text. If the hex is 00 6C 00 5B 00 88 00 A1 for example, and that spells SAUND(Japanese romaji) , typing it like this 6C 00 5B 00 etc., basically swapping their positions, it still comes out exactly the same. If I typed it as 00 6C 5B 00, then it would come out as a different character entirely. Typing this 6C 00 00 5B would put a space between SA and U.
This brings me to another question. Is it possible to make it ignore the double hex characters (as shown above) entirely so that I get double the amount of space for text per double hex?

I just found the pointer table! yay! So, i can now give me more room and adjust the pointers to fit. This is great.

This is my current font style im going with. This is using a similar setup to final fantasy 1 where the text is like, "th" " e" "en" "d "
What do you think?
