Default Tales of Phantasia GBA Font Enhancement

Not sure if anyone actually cares about this, but it kept me busy for an hour:

Also, Kajitani-Eizan's text enhancement patch:

I care. They really should've spent a little bit longer on the font for this game. :P Also, if I might ask, what does that text patch change, besides changing Cress to Cless (and the PSX/SNES thing)?

I always thought it was weird that they named him after a vegetable for that.

In the trend of naming RPGs and characters after vegetables, we could really use a Cabbage Trigger or a Fennel Fantasy.

Fixes most of the changed names (I noticed it missed an instance of Cress though) and cleans up the menus a lot (Not nearly as many abbreviations). I need to update the font patch, somehow when I repointed the font I duplicated it <img src=smilies/cwm27.gif>

Someone somewhere said it might be intentional, to go alongside Mint, I don't know for sure but "Cress" just doesn't sound right.

Yeah...I mean, I thought "Cless..Cress..ok, I guess that's reasonable given the stuff with japanese and l/r sounds" but whenever I think of that I think of water cress. And what DKK said about Mint...for some reason Mint sounds ok but Cress does not to me.

Huh? weren't the only mangled names Cless as Cress and Klarth as Claus, actualy I don't enessicarily know that that was a mangled name. I've seen it written like that long before the offical Transilation. Although both the fantrans and Nintendo Power agreed that it was Cless and Klarth. Aparently it's a direct transilation of Klarth in kana Kura-su, which reads more like Kurous. Though somehow I think they meant Claus to be read like Clouse, since I think the source was originaly Japanese before the offical trans.

Updated text fix from Kajitani-Eizan:

http://geocities.com/blade_2187/top/ToPUSKE002.zip

<blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>

- for example, in the main menu, i noticed they made the slash seperating your TP from your max TP yellow and displaced by one. (what the heck is that!?) i couldn't get it to be white again, but at least it's in the right place.
- i also expanded the item names in the equip menu a bit.
- changed the "Strat" menu to "Tactics".
- fixed the mystic symbol description.
- etc.

> Updated text fix from Kajitani-Eizan:

Now I just need to figure out how to hack my save game so that Cress= Cless and Clous (spelled wrong) = Klarth, although that's not so big a deal as Cress to me. Apparently it saves the character's names even though it's changed in the ROM now...if I restart the game Cress is now Cless, but not in my saved game. :P

From Kajitani Eizan's post at GameFAQs:

<blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>

yeah, you've already "named" your characters once you've started a new game. you would have to use codes to change them.

here are the straight up 32-bit memory codes; you would have to convert them for use with cheating systems. (plus, you could probably make a better code for cless, since he only needs one letter changed...)

cress -> cless
03000a6c:73656c43

claus -> klarth
03000c58:72616c4b
03000c5c:00006874
