 Okay,I'm inserting 6-letter player names into my ff1 hack.Its working good,but there's 1 major bug.After any battle,whether you level up,run away,or win,the 6Th character in their names change.For example,I name a character AAAAAA, and after a battle,his name changes to AAAAAG,and eventually it just uses garbled graphics for the last letter.I've checked every byte I've changed since I started this project,but can't seem to find a reason for this.Does anyone know how to fix this.

You know how to use breakpoints, right? Set a write breakpoint to the address of the last letter of your character's name. Then you'll find out why it keeps changing.

...The bad news I'm trying to dance around here is that the game seems to use the space you're using for extra character name length for something else entirely. There's really no way to fix it, unless you can move the character name to six bytes of completely-unused space.

 The only way I can think of fixing this is by contacting astral esper on gamefaqs,but I can't sign up for gamefaqs because they ask for you address.If anyone could contact her and ask how she added it to her hack,that would be obliged.

You don't have to give them your real address, you know. You can just make one up. They won't be able to tell.
