2. Load the ROM and the table file in a hex editor
3. Do a text search (not a hex search!) for the text
4. Edit in "Text Edit Mode", or the equivalent in whatever hex editor you're using

With this method, you can just type your text straight up. Of course, you'll still have to insert line breaks and the like yourself but it sure beats your method :\

colcolstyles, what do you mean by "text edit mode"?
I would like to use this easier method, but I'm using Hex Workshop and I searched high and low for "text edit mode" and can't find it. Can someone please help me on this?
If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all.
