Metroid Fusion Menu Changes
« on: March 23, 2019, 05:56:19 pm »
Hi. I'm trying to translate Metroid Fusion, in particular things which weren't handled in the official european releases of the game.

I've already worked through all of the game's main text, and even managed to add myself to the credits, but I'm having issues with Fusion's menu. Specifically, the weapon/suit tabs. I added one letter right after "BOMB" but I realized the empty space is actually repeated in the "SUIT" and "MISC." tabs:

I already found the pointer to the compressed graphics in the menu and there's enough unused space there to fit it all, though I'm unsure how to solve this. I don't know if there's an instruction to repeat the tile or not (and if there is, how and where do I find it - before the pointer or right in the middle of these graphics?). Also, some powerup names are clearly not going to fit...

Can anyone suggest the best way to handle this? An example to kickstart this (a method, a different tool, etc.) would be appreciated :)

Also, tools being used: MAGE, HxD, NLZ-GBA, Tile Molester, and mGBA.
