Quote from: Bob Liu on May 01, 2014, 04:32:58 PMI was using windhex to search for English text that I saw in the game such as the images above with 172cm and R&D. I don't know if that searches for 16-bit characters so could you possibly recommend me a program that does just to be sure, I was only relative searching for English text before as you said Kanji searching so I'll do that too. Also when you say dump lwram and such do mean in the debugger section of the emulator.

I was wondering, can you find an offset by Relative searching using Japanese text as so far I have only done it for English. If so I could try that and try to find an offset, I just need to know of a program which can do that and in 16 bit text.

Quote from: CyberWarriorX on May 02, 2014, 11:56:36 AMTry shrinking the memory search range. Like 00200000-00610000lwram/hwram: low work ram/high work ram. Basically if text is being stored in ram, it's going to be in one of those two spots. If anything it helps in cases where you're dealing with like 600 MB of files and the location of the text isn't obvious.
