Decent but could use improvementReviewed By: PolishedTurd on 27 Jun 2019
This is a handy tool for changing all of the in-game text. It conveniently organizes text by category, such as menu items, treasure chests, and speech.
A few things I wish it could do:
1. Use all the allocated space for a block of text. By default, you must use no more than the number of characters you are replacing, even if there are several spaces (0×5F) until the next block of text. If you replace one text with a shorter text, when you open the program again to edit the same text, the shortened length is your new maximum length.
2. SEARCH for text. There are 9 separate screens of dialog to browse, and not all related dialog is on the same page.
3. Link and re-link text blocks, so characters can talk arbitrarily long but nobody’s dialog gets obliterated. I understand this is more sophisticated than the raw text editing the program provides.
Absent these features, I ended up using a hex editor for a lot of my changes, but this program was helpful to start with.
Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
