Psst. Dreamcast games are fucking easy to hack. There just aren't any text-heavy enough to merit a translation that have enough interest to actually get a translation.

Shit, as long as the game bothers to malloc() enough space for the script, they will generally just store everything in SJIS. Even if half-width ASCII is missing from the font, you at least get full width.

(a project that died because, at the time, I couldn't figure out how to allocate more memory--yes, the system had plenty more)
