First update regarding the compressed graphics.
I took my time today to try to translate the main menu's compressed graphics, and here's the result:
As you can see, I had to switch fonts from the 16x16 one to the 8x16 font or else the translated english text won't even fit.
I only had troubles with "Data Management". I had to change it to "Saved Data", again, due to limited space.
What do you guys think so far?
I'll be going through the compressed graphics first. I want to get those out of the way as soon as possible.
I will post updates with each one I translate.
Also, for the Bowser image here:
Does someone have any idea as to what font to go for that one? The font for those letters is a 16x24 one.
I was thinking of maybe a 8x16 font with "SAFETY' in the upper row and "FIRST" in the lower one. I can add another line under the available 24 pixels of height to make the available space 16x16 for each letter)
PS: The black space you see after each sentence ("STORY MODE_ _ _ _ " for example) is the free available space in 8x16 tiles.
Story Mode has 4 free spaces, Versus has 4 too, Help has 2 and Exit has 3.
