Default Documents and Tutorials Request Thread

Have you had any trouble with something, and you really wish you had a guide? Or are you a hacker that likes to make tutorials, but he can't find anything to make them on? Well, this is definitely where you should be. Here, you can request tutorials and documents on how to do all things hacking, and bored hackers can find something to write a guide about.

Rules:
  • Don't flame others. If a tutorial exists already, simply post a link to it instead of bashing them. Sometimes, the right tutorial can be hard to find.
  • Do not demand tutorials. If you are impolite or sound pushy, people aren't going to want to make your tutorial. So just be polite and remember that they are doing you a favor.
  • Search before requesting. If you need a tutorial, there is a good chance that someone else needs it too and has probably already asked for it. It makes it much easier on potential tutorial writers to find something to write about if they don't have to sift through a ton of spam posts about the same topic.
  • Basic RHO forum rules apply.
  • Use common sense.

I would really appreciate a tutorial on how to make character tables and dump game text. What people have told me over Skype doesn't help me and I really need the pretty pictures too.

I'd really like to see a World Map tutorial up here sometime. The only one I've seen, I've not understood.

This too, would be fantastic (hopefully universal with DS support eheheh). So +1 to this.

could you explain more? From what I understand what you're trying to do, I personally just c+p all the hex out and manually find+replace (okay maybe not completely manually) replace it to be the text table.

I was told I have to make a Hex to Key character table in order to successfully dump text from a ROM. Unfortunately the game I want to dump is in Japanese, so it becomes excessively difficult.

shouldn't be that bad, right? just a bit more than the english version…

does it have kanji? if so then that might be a little more difficult.

The specific games I want to dump do indeed have Kanji which I have no experience in.

I can figure it out probably…

so I assume you have all the cool stuff down so is it just reading the kanji you're having trouble with?

I have no idea what to look for in a hex editor or how to find out what byte means what character. Thats what I don't understand, which is why I think a tutorial might help other people interested in translating games.
