Default What's after FF in Hex?

Hey, I'm new to ROM hacking and I'm trying to make a table file for a game I'm hacking. It's a japanese ROM but I was able to figure out that E4=A, E5=I, E6=U, etc. But, FF=FU and there's many more Japanese charactesr to go...

So, anyone know what's after FF? I don't know, I was always taught that it goes from 11 to FF... but I still have a lot to learn.

Also, how do I change text with Thingy32? I tried some things (highlighting text then pressing Space to edit it) but none of them work. Any help?

Well, I know 100's after FF but that's not the case with ROM hacking. Each byte only uses two Numbers/Letters. To my knowledge, FF is the highest number in ROM Hacking...

if it's a one byte value then yes that is correct.

$FF is the highest one byte can be, in your situation the game is probably using two bytes for each character, your next letter would be $0100.

00 - FF... If you start from 11, you'll miss the first 17 values between 00 and 10.
