Cartographer dumping issue
« on: September 05, 2016, 09:57:28 am »
Hi guys,

i have a problem with the tool Cartographer. I want dump the script from FF4 retranslation.

One of this pointer is located at:


Termination byte is hex 00.

/00=<ED>\n (ED = EndDialog)
01=<NL>\n (NL = NewLine)

If i want dumpt the first Pointer. I got this one:

[Cecil] of the Red Wings!<NL>
The Village of Mist is beyond<NL>
the cave to th e northwest.<ED>

Cartographer recognized the hex 00 as terminator byte. Its okay, but the dialog has several 00 in the dialog.

Could i handle this on another way?

This would the full dialog for this pointer:

[Cecil] of the Red Wings!<NL>
The Village of Mist is beyond<NL>
the cave to th e northwest.<ED>
