Okay, got all fish names and animal names coded correctly and offsets adjusted accordingly. I used the last translation patch downloaded from this thread (v0.90).

There's still one problem. When you catch a fish, you have the string " caught!" (with the space), but when a fish escapes, it says " is gone!" (with the space). The first is 8 characters, the second is 9 characters. So for fishes with 10 letters, you still get a glitch occuring at the right border of the text box. So either we find another word, or remove the exclamation point. You should make a last check on all the names to see if there's no mistake, and make sure all the dialogue displays correctly throughout the game. I know there's at least one guy along the river, in Keiryuu, whose text is glitched. If you need to cheat, here's a few variables I found so far:

What if I shortened the names to 9 characters would that help? Also for that part where the guy has the garbled text can you send me a screenshot of that?

Yes, fish names with 9 letters will not cause glitches. Animal names can have up to 10 characters without problem. Here's the glitched dialogue:

I think there are others, but can't remember exactly. Either that or dialogues that look like Engrish, possibly because of lack of space. The generic "congratulations" message spoken by all characters at the very end of the game (after catching the River Master) is also glitchy. Some item names also have glitchy tiles. The food items are okay when you buy them, but when you want to eat them, the characters are complete nonsense...

I don't want to use that for fish escaping. If it were a battle scene it would work but it doesn't seem to fit in the scheme of fishing.. Going to stick with the way it is for now.
