    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.

    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

There are two different types of data structures in MOTHER 3, fixed-length and variable-length. This is the same case in EarthBound, and as we know, PK Hack can edit both of those things. The difference is the premise upon which those things may be edited: in EarthBound, when you change something that’s variable-length, you simply expand your ROM and repoint the data. Easy, right?

Not in MOTHER 3! Nope. Whereas EarthBound may be expanded from 3MB to 6MB, MOTHER 3 is already the maximum possible GBA ROM size. Furthermore, there is hardly any unused space in the ROM to work with; anything that’s already there is currently dotted with data chunks from the English translation. Therefore, it is inherently not feasible to repoint variable-length data in MOTHER 3. This is something that’s not likely to ever change.

Anything that’s compressed is automatically variable-length data. A lot of text banks are also variable-length. The following things are variable-length and thus not editable:

  • Maps
  • In-battle enemy sprites
  • Main text
  • Item, enemy and skill descriptions

Supports version 1.2 of the fan translation.
