Editing Translated ROMS Question (FF5 and ToP)
« on: December 16, 2016, 06:29:18 am »
Just wondering how someone would go about changing the default Butz to Bartz in Final Fantasy 5 translation and Cless to Cress (and other character names) in Tales of Phantasia (SNES/SFC) translation. Would it require a hex edit of SHIFT-JIS?

Generic answer: maybe. This requires applying the techniques described in the "Getting Started" section of this site. I might add that there's also a possibility these use ASCII, since we're talking about games in English, for once.

I don't know if we have anyone with specific knowledge for these games. Isn't there an FF-specific site out there?
