Newcomer's Board / Entering Fonts for Kanji
« on: April 24, 2018, 12:21:53 pm »
I am currently altering the font graphics for Link to the Past but I am about to reach an impasse as I slowly make my way to the kanji graphics. I am still in the middle of changing the hiragana graphics but seeing the amount of kanji that lie after the katakana graphics makes me wonder what I am to do with the kanji graphics.

Considering how many kana graphics there are, there won't be any English alphabet letters left for the kanji graphics. There might not even be enough to finish the katakana graphics.

What should I do with the kanji graphics? Should I replace them with even more Latin letters or maybe reuse English alphabet letters?

Newcomer's Board / Help with Altering Font
« on: April 07, 2018, 04:33:27 pm »
So I've been trying to get into ROM hacking and Japanese translation recently and I'm at a bit of a stump. I've explored around this site and delved into the translation section of the beginner's guide. The document "Table for Dummies" has provided a good starting base for me.
Reading the first part of this document has taught me how to create tables. I practiced this by creating a table for the Japanese version of Link to the Past.

However, the second part of this document is where I am confused. The document discusses relative searching and it requiring entering fonts into the ROM, but does not explain how to do so. I have trying to find documentation on this matter but I have only found this [http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/16906-how-to-change-the-font-in-a-rom/], but I am not too sure how accurate it is.

Can anybody provide me advice or refer me to documentation that explains how to input English font into a Japanese ROM so that I can use relative search and proceed with translating the Japanese ROM to English?
