How do i edit text in Kirby's Adventure?
« on: April 30, 2021, 02:11:50 pm »
I tried to edit KIrby's Adventure text using this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aghjzWIHYKs&ab_channel=JohnRiggs but it didn't work. Is there another way to edit this game's text? (example: the "how to draw Kirby", the tutorial, the ending.)

This person was engaged in the translation of the game into Russian. Hacking. He will help you, if you can come to an agreement...

Heres all the text locations and table/tbl files you need. Just load the rom, table file in an hex editor and use goto or find function to find the text.

Just saying "it didn't work" doesn't help, what didn't work? Be more specif se we can help more.

I made a table, loaded it in fceux's hex editor and the text didn't appeared, like in the tutorial. I think that's because the text is compresssed so i can't edit directly. Thank you for helping.

There are seven different table files on that page for different parts of the text. Did you try them all?

the text isn't compressed, I made that data crystal article(all but the "How To Draw" part). Like said there are seven table files and the text itself is located all over the place, the addresses and what table file to use are in the data crystal page.

Also make sure you are in the hex editor mode in fceux:
