Hi, I'm a complete newbie to rom hacking but I heard the translation/gameplay of Terranigma sucks in English so I've been thinking about doing a translation hack (if anyone wants to team up with me, you're VERY welcome!). I thought to start with I'd just need to extract the text with a table file, translate it then insert it back in. However the table file at Data Crystal is missing all the kanji: https://datacrystal.romhacking.net/wiki/Terranigma:TBL#Japanese_Version
I opened up the rom in Tile Molester, found the kanji section and used the paint bucket to replace colours until the kanji were recognizable. Here's an example of the in-game kanji:
Originally something like this in Tile Molester:
Replaced colours, Row Interleaved mode:
The kanji clearly have parts missing on the right side. 宝 矢 六 論 四 五 雷 for example are all in there but their right sides have been cut off. I thought in order to make the table file I would just have to find the letter offsets in an image editor then type them all up, but this is making things more complicated. Can anyone help me?
