So I need some help editing the fonts for Dr. Robotnik's Mean Machine Spanish translation: https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=31115.0
Anyone who helps out, I will make sure your name appears in the credits:
So while discussing with Jate (Spanish European translator), we found a suitable translation for GAME OVER. It was difficult, as it had to be 8 letters or less. We found SE ACABÓ (IT'S OVER) worked really well.
This meant I had to figure out how to modify the GAME OVER font. Wasn't too hard, and you can see the modifications in these videos:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biYQHHFNACIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXyy2p5cyyQ
So GAME OVER appears on the CONTINUE screen. Each letter is a sprite that rotates in a circle, goes off screen, and then falls into a certain position (which I can control).
Now since only the letters G A M E O V R have been created, I need help in creating S C B Ó
Each letter is 24x24, but I have made the Ó 24x32 so the O doesn't have to be squashed.
The second GAME OVER appears on the playing field.
This one is a pain because it is made up of 3 frames where the font shrinks in size.
The first frame is made up of the 8x16 letters, while the other two frames use unique graphics. These need modifying to say: SE ACABÓ
For the Ó, the purple area indicates the space you can use for the accent / , so the o doesn't have to be squashed.
If anyone wants to attempt making the : look better, go ahead.
On the PASSWORD screen, when you enter a correct password, FÁCIL, NORMAL, DIFÍCIL, & MUY DIFÍCIL appear.
These use sprites, which does mean I can control the size of them. At the moment, they are 16x16, with a shadow appearing behind. This is what is used at the moment:
I feel a better job could be done for the Á and Í letters. I can easily make these letters size 16x24 so they don't have to be squashed.
Finally, on the HIGH SCORE screen, MODO HISTORIA and MODO PRÁCTIA appear at the bottom.
Now these are stored as background tiles, and have to be 16x16 in size. So the Á would have to be that size.
