Aww I was kinda excited as a VN and Marmalade Boy fan. Maybe by the time you get back around to it I'll be free to help out with translation or something. Keep me posted in the future.

Shucks! I'd gladly take on the translating job if someone else could do the hacking, though. And surely I will alright! ;)

I want to study programming to uncompress fonts, but rn it just sounds a lot of work and I'm still trying to get the sense of rom hacking, so I hope to get back to it when I can spare time...  :-\
The compression logic was explained by Denim, and that's the toughest / longest part.
Programming compression / decompression based on something that's already been explained should be reasonably easy / feasible.
Have you already started learning programming?
