Hello you guys!! I hope you enjoyed Halloween! (Americans at least)!!

I need your help, about following problem of mine.

I am working on a present for my cousin, that is, translating Golden Sun in Greek, since the editor does not recognize the Greek alphabet though, I use greeklish (Latin alphabet, rearranged to make sense in Greek, like this: kalimera which is Good Morning).

Everything was fine, until I decided to include a joke, I made Garet at some point say too much, and the editor semi-crushed. Everything was a blurry and did not make sense, it was easy for me to fix, I just opened up another editor with an original English version, and translated as always...

Anyway here comes the problem, as I went on translating, I noticed that a certain line does not change, no matter what I do.

It is after the 3 years, where Garet says: But, [17][6]..!  ([17][6] is Jenna I think, anyway this is not of importance)

When I try to give the Greek word for but, which is ma, it does not change. The editor keeps the above. I tried to patch a new file, but the problem remains. And I calculated, this problem keeps for about 250 lines of dialogue, not much compared to the 6000 lines, but still it bother me though...

Is there any way for me to fix it? Please, I do not want to start over, I have translated everything else, apart the dialogue of the game, but I also want to give a proper translation to my cousin.

Anything would help!

Thanks in advance!!

Golden Sun 1?
Does the editor say anything about not being able to compress it? (Atrius's Editor does not rewrite char tables, so only certain letter combinations work... And those are the letter combinations used in the original text. If the letter comibnation doesn't exist in the original text, it's unsupported.)

(Tried capitalizing the 'm' maybe? ("0x00" to m is a char combo, and so is "ma", and "a," ....and I'm asking because most lines start with a capital letter.)
I haven't checked, but if that is the case, you could have two options:
-Use gstoolkit - It saves the text as uncompressed to the ROM.
-Use one of our compressors that rewrite the char tables. (Which means that it is better compression than not doing so after editing. i.e. Atrius's editor) (If you scroll up, you may see a version of mine in C# that works faster than approxies's, but I think I only have mine compatible to GS2 (U)... By swapping address values, though, it could be easily compatible with GS1/Mario Golf/Mario Tennis. -(Oh yeah, and use of my editor may result in larger patch files than Atrius's because everything was repointed, while Atrius's just repoints edited sections, I think. Not sure about approxies, though... since didn't investigate.)

Remember kids! Before you go on that interview, remember to wash your hands in teawater! *Coughs on hand* (Excuse me, I just coughed up a little teawater, so they're still clean!) You wouldn't want that hiring manager to be unimpressed.

May the force be with you!
Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

Fox: I saw we need an event this April Fools/Easter... because two holidays are in one, why would we not want to miss having something special? (Unfortunately, there's no one here to make an event be successful.)

Fox: And since that's the case...  I have thought of another fun experiment idea. - What if we had an auction on who should run this site, and waited for 10 people to bid and also for a bare minimum of 24 hours. Who would bid the highest, and how much would that bid be? - The idea is more for lulz (Maybe for April Fools?), and a theory to get an idea of how much the site might be worth as well.

KyleRunner: "difficult thing about the army": I'm very good at taking orders, so I don't have issues with autority or discipline. The most difficult thing is to be away from my family sometimes. I lived an entire year away from my son, so I'd say that was the most hard part by far. Now it's great!

Fox: That's good to hear... just checking if there were any possibility of doubt. What would you say was your most difficult thing about the army?
February 18, 2018, 12:39:38 PM
KyleRunner: Well, it was a destiny kinda thing, but I was very happy when I decided to join. It was just like I thought it would be (not in the beginning, though). I'm very pleased with my decision.

Fox: That's awesome!  Trying to figure what question I want to ask Something about how you felt when you made the decision to do the army, and whether it was different than your expectations/etc.

KyleRunner: Wow... My english got rusty. Anyway... I'm in the army now. My life turned 180. But I think it was for the best.

Fox: Hm? So where does that make you today?
February 16, 2018, 12:06:38 AM
KyleRunner: Five years ago I could not even imagine where I am today. I hope it works well for you too!

Fox: 2018 - The year that I will probably be working a manufacturing job. xP What would I have thought, if I told myself this five years ago. Eh?

Fox: You referring to changing the PC/leader sprite to someone else? - I forgot to mention that you can do this using VBA's memory viewer. (Found under Tools.)
