Poketext for Spanish language of Pokémon?
« on: August 11, 2019, 06:48:38 pm »
Hello there! I see there is a Poketext for Red, Blue and Yellow for GB but it only works with English versions of these videogames.

Is there a way to make it compatible with the Spanish version, so I can edit the text easily? I assume that I should edit the BlueRedBanks.ini file with the correct banks in the Spanish ROM, but I don't really know how to do it.

As for the GBA versions, I can edit the text directly with Advance Text but I can't find a way to edit the attack's names for a rom in Spanish. Is there a way to do that?

I will really appreciate any help!  :)

[Edit]
To make it compatible, not only the blocks and the codec must be changed, the English language uses Ascii and the Spanish uses Iso 8859 1, if you want to edit some names and movements I would do it with a hexagesimal editor.

Open the rom
Load the spanish table ".tbl"
Do a search, using the table
Edit the text
And save the changes.

The table have to look like this.

This is from the English version, the Spanish version should be created, which is easy to do by looking at the rom on a image editor to see the layout of the letters on the tiles.

I could help you when I get to the pc.

Para hacerlo compatible no sólo se deben cambiar los bloques sino también la fuente y el codec, el inglés usa Ascii y el español usa Iso 8859 1, si quieres editar algunos nombres y movimientos yo lo haría con algún editor hexagesimal.
Abro el rom en español
cargo la tabla ".tbl"
Hago una búsqueda usando la tabla
Y guardo los cambios.

Las tablas lucen así.

Está es de la versión en inglés, habría que crear la del español lo cual es fácil de hacer  viendo el rom en algún editor de imágenes para ver la disposición de las letras en los tiles.

Yo podría ayudarte cuando llegue al pc.

Can we speak in Spanish here? lol

I'd really appreciate it dude!  :)  I really want to create a Latin Spanish version for these games. Could you help me with the GBA version as well?

If the tools only support english version, you need the help of the author.

The rom has the script with other positions, blocks of text, pointers.

The game can be ASCII and
the new characters may use free values.

From 20 to 7F, there's free space or signs that can be changed.
