Poketext Help

I've been trying to edit text in Poketext for Pokemon Gold, but I can't get it to work correctly.
If the text I enter is shorter than the original text, it adds things to the bottom. IE if i entered:

Wow, is that a
POKéGEAR?
It's the latest
model, too!

(Which is 58 out of the original 59 characters)
Becomes:


Wow, is that a
POKéGEAR?
It's the latest
model, too!

o!xxt
xxt


And those extra characters show up in game.
How can I end a line of text properly if it's shorter than the original text?

Re: Poketext Help

The most simple (yet least "accurate") to do would be using a hex editor and going to the offset where the text data is located (poketext shows it when you're editing the data).

Download a table file and a hex editor and load the table file with the hex editor. Go to the offset where the text data is located and input byte "57" after the point where you want the text data to end.

If you don't get it straight (I probably wouldn't have when I started rom editing), start off here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P55prFTaZoE

Re: Poketext Help

This is the table you need. c/p it in notepad and save it as .tbl file. Then load the Pokemon Gold ROM and the table in a hex editor like Gold Finger and have fun editing!
