Done and done. I'm not sure what the issue is. Are you using the latest version or an earlier version? Maybe the latest versions have a bug?

Did you change the character set to SJIS? For PC98 it's almost always going to be SJIS.
I assume you already have a Japanese font such as MS Gothic or IPA Gothic on your computer. Maybe you need to set Bz to a Japanese font manually?

How do you set it up for that? I looked all over for a switch thereto. I'm using 1.8.5 for Win32 from Github.

I found this software called Sakura Edit, which does Kanji, but it insists on breaking at line feeds so it's useless for hacking.

Bz only shows text one byte at a time, which prevents it from interpreting byte pairs as Kanji. Need to see the text as two-bytes per character.

I'm not sure I understand you correctly, because Bz can do that.

After reviewing the options at RHDN, I'm quite persuaded that the software I'm looking for does not exist (well, almost... I'm sure it's available but not for free, and not within the price range of a hobbyist).

Bz is a great hex editor for working with Japanese.

Good luck with your efforts.

Particularly I'd like to translate Pc-98 DOS/Shell. I think that would be pretty easy for starters, and quite useful. I nearly formatted my HDI the other day without realizing it.

Here's another question, it's fairly straightforward to measure the color gamut of a display or printer with some software and a colorimeter, but how do you measure the color gamut of an analog source device, like a super Nintendo.

If you are using a monitor and colorimeter, the monitor could skew the data, and if you use a capture card, capture cards are notorious for changing, clipping, or making assumptions about the color coming from the source device, so how then can you measure it?

Hi, I'm looking to translate some softs and make the PC-98 more easy for Westerners to use. The main stumbling block I'm having is the hex editing... I either can't seem to find a hex editor for JIS or I can't configure one for use as such. Can someone help me with this?

Hello popolon_hinotori,

I have replaced the (audio) electrolytic capacitors on my XVI Compact using the following guide and purchasing NON-POLARIZED electrolytic capacitors made by Nichicon (or Rubycon) specifically designed for AUDIO application such as the P/N UUQ Series
