Initial D Gaiden - Translation into game
« on: July 02, 2021, 09:34:46 am »
Hi all...

I have all the key text on the game translated and there is a english alphabet in the game.

Can anyone help me by pointing me to any guides on how I can edit the rom to display the english tiles rather than the japanese.

I new to this type of thing, but I assume I will need to edit the HEX code to point to the english character locations??

Any help appreciated.

Well... how did you get the "key text" in the first place?  Did you analyze the game's data somehow, or did you do it all manually?

Regardless, usually the first step at this point is:
