Hi there,
I recently jumped to the NES translation hole because my son asked me to play the first Captain Tsubasa game.

I'm on the process to create my table but I realized I perhaps need more than one, so I'm looking for advice :

MMC1 allows to switch between 32 CHR banks.
I extracted all of them using YYCHR and noticed at least 2 which include letters.
First one for in-game text (status, team name, ...)
Second one for dialog, cut scenes and title screen

does it mean I need to create one table file per CHR bank and switch to one or another according the screen I'm translating ?

Since the font defined in bank31 is not used the same way (raw vs pseudo encoded) according the screen which use it, I'm now using a table file per screen
