Hi everyone!

I was very impressed with the NES version of "Final Fantasy VII Advent Children".
Thanks to Lugia2009 and all others.

I wanted to make a Japanese translation of this now, so I put in Japanese fonts from the unused address 40010H in the English version FF7.

I'm in trouble because I don't have any technical knowledge about the program, but it would be helpful if someone could give me some advice.

I know that text scripts are stored from addresses 38219H, 50219H, 79209H, and so on.

Thank you.
As for games, I like them to be difficult enough that I can be a little reckless and not lose.

First step would be replacing english letters with japanese at 0x78210. But since there is not enough space for all of them, you need some hacking skills.

Then comes the script editing, which would probably require some skills too, depending on the script format.

Thank you for your advice. I hope I can proceed little by little. :thumbsup:
