Text dumping 'Pokemon Vietnamese Crystal'
« on: August 25, 2016, 05:33:59 pm »
Hey, new here, have literally done nearly nothing with editing roms and stuff, so I figured I could start here. I'm interested in text dumping a popular bootleg Pokemon game 'Pokemon Vietnamese Crystal'. As the name suggests, It's a bootleg version of Pokemon Crystal. Except with terribly translated, and funny, text. For instance Pokemon are called ELFS. Totodile is 'CROC'. Exegguttor is 'NO', and Pidgey is 'LAP'. I was interested in text dumping this. Although the Pokemon Crystal 'Table thingy's' haven't worked... I'm all out of ideas... And thought this would be a good place to ask.   


Would give an IPS patch for it here, but not sure if that's allowed. :/

There’s an existing text dump, but if you’re interested in poking around yourself, the character map starting from $80 is:

!”%&’()+,-./0123
456789:;=>?ABCDE
FGHIJKLMNOPQRSTU
VWXYZ???????????


Everything from $B5 to $E2 is question marks (which is why most untranslated text is shown as mostly question marks, because that range covers most of the hiragana in the original character set); everything from $E3 to $FF is left as it was in the original game.

If you look through the text, you’ll see that a lot of strings were translated more than once; I was trying to catalogue these a while back until I stumbled into something more exciting.

Personally, my favorite piece of translation work is the text for Mobile Stadium Moveable Sport Field:

"Johnny’s got a gun Johnny’s got some ammo
He lost his firing pin a long time ago
Johnny’s got to push Johnny’s got that stroke
Johnny lost it all and now nobody knows
Ain’t it funny how he walks through everything
Ain’t it funny how he listens to everything
Well he’s got the gears well he’s lost the fear
Well he’s done the years so near and dear
Well he’s learned the ropes learned to cope
Lost the hope so near and dear
Well he’s got it all learned to fall
Dropped the ball so near and dear"
