Quote from: TeacherGus on July 24, 2020, 01:20:54 PMThanks! I got the TBL from there and this is what it looks like now:
Quote from: abw on July 24, 2020, 08:53:53 PMIt's hard to tell sure with your hex editor only showing 1 letter from the DTE entries, but that's probably right. Is that good enough for you to work with? If not, there are other options for extracting and inserting the game's text.
Quote from: TeacherGus on July 24, 2020, 01:20:54 PMWould that need extensive programming knowledge? I'm just a translator, so that might be beyond my skills.
Quote from: Vanya on July 28, 2020, 12:52:26 AMThe short answer is no. No Programming skill needed.You just locate the text you want to change in the correct file, make your changes, and then use the batch file to compile the ROM.The only thing to watch out for is that you don't add too much data to the file. That is a bit of a pain to keep track of unfortunately.I'd say it's at least worth a try.
Quote from: abw on July 24, 2020, 08:53:53 PMWas there a disassembly of the base game that made this easy? Disch's just has all the text and pointers together as a binary blob that's directly pasted into the build process, so editing that is essentially the same difficulty as editing the final ROM.
Quote from: TeacherGus on July 27, 2020, 11:55:55 PMYeah, that's not enough because several letters are missing. Any hex-editors or other ideas on extracting and inserting the game's text? Thanks for your time and help, btw!
