Well I'll have to quit the project. I was just working on my laptop, it was hooked up to my external with all my disgaea working data on it. It was tugged off of my desk, fell a few feet onto the floor. I plugged it in only to hear a disheartening click... click... click... click.
I'm going to try to repair it, but by the time I do, you will be well into your first beta version. I'm here rooting for you guys, good luck.
Alexmango: The pattern for charhelp is a 4 byte header, then a 2 byte identifier, then 50bytes of info(skip 50 bytes in eng) then another 50 bytes(skip 50) anotehr 50 bytes(skip 50)
After the 4 byte header, one block of japanese info is 152 bytes, on block of english is 302. There are 289 Japanese entries and 303 english entries.
