If you ran out of ROM space then you just expand it -- the GBA addresses 32 megabytes of space without hassle (no banks, mappers or anything like that) and change the pointers appropriately. If you can keep it under 16 megs it will help some flash cart users but if needs it then go for it.
Quote from: nibbles27 on June 28, 2016, 10:06:27 AMThere are three font tables in each rom.In theory i guess you could shorten the two font tables not needed to be modified then insert the new large font tableand remap the pointers in between keeping the same rom size. This would though:1. Make the patch uncompatible with other hacks2. Be time intensive * and to start off i am a begginer at rom hacking (though i know alot about computers)Anyways most of the patches for Final Fantasy V Advance are for the *(U) version and this font hack targets the english speaking audience anyways (as i imagine the text would spill over in the thin *(E) version for any language other than english)If you want to send me a link to some more advanced tutorials i wont complain and maybe some day you will see thisin the *(E) version or even a version for Final Fantasy IV Advance
Quote from: Chronosplit on June 28, 2016, 12:48:15 PMAs far as 6 is concerned the EU focus was due to the sound hack. Now that it's available for the US version there isn't really much of an issue, as the ones that aren't compatible with it fix things specifically wrong with the EU version.More languages are always better however.
QuoteI am not sure what the advanced tutorial you would seek might look like, assuming you meant GBA ROM expansion. For the SNES or NES then yeah it is a somewhat involved hack.For the GBA it amounts to "add space to end of ROM", make sure pointers point to the data you put in this extra space. There are no pages, banks, initialisation/unlock routines... outside of some very old flash carts and a couple of GBA games that were not even dumped until last year (the shrek videos). It is just put it there and point at it using whatever pointer scheme the game is presently using (so most likely the 08??????, unless it is past the 16 meg mark in which case it is 09??????, or actually just account for the 01 that technically gets added to the 08 in that scenario).
