Item description minor bug and some doubts from a newbie!

I saw a really minor bug that will not kill anyone but I would like to fix it if I can! In a item description it seems more like a spacing problem cause I had the idea to change the language to Japanese and there it is fixed so anyone know how to make it get better?

Also how I delete a character? I mean there is some hidden command or something like that? When I start a game I mess with everything just to see how it works them I clean install it to start playing for real :) When I get used to the game I would like to clean all the chars I created for testing if possible :)

Its not exactly a "bug", is just that whoever translated that didn't think about this kind of things.
As you can see the JP one has 6 lines including the empty line, the EN has 8... even if you remove the space the 7th line will overflow, so the whole description has to be changed (re-arranged) to fit.

I changed the files I use to "fix" these (there are a lot of those in the techs on shop, iirc).

You can't delete a character, you can recreate it if you want, tho.

I was about to ask you in how to change this but I think I should just get used to it since you said there is more! So that means this is one of those Japanese only items that some fan translated and that's why it got a little messed up? or it's just SEGA being lazy? :)

Another idea would be since you got a file with all or at least a majority of the descriptions fixed you could share with the admin here so he can add to the game and fix it for everyone but like I said if no one cares about it this will not kill me or anything! I just thought it was something I did wrong on my PC and was easily fixed and decided to ask :)

too bad I will have one main char with lot's of tests subjects below it :(

I shared with Sodaboy some files (En and ES) a while back, but I have done more fixes including stuff like this so I'd have to upload them again, if he wants to fix them I'd gladly help.

And talking about Sodaboy, he might be kind enough to delete your test characters.

Easiest way to fix this is to change the interline spacing in the client.
Japanese client has huge interline spacing for some reasons.
I think it doesn't write very long on a single line as well, the box is much larger than that.
I haven't looked in the unitxt files, but are the line feeds hardcoded?
Because if the client is the one doing word wrapping, that sounds like a quick fix.

That's nice! Well for now I will deal with it it's not game breaking or anything it's just hard to read for my poor eyes :) If they want to fix it it will be fixed when they have time!


What are these "test subjects" used for?

Did I detected some suspicion in your question? :) They are not for cheating or anything like that I hate cheating in games :( Dark Souls one of my favorite games is plagued by this and If I was filthy rich I would spent lot's of money in ways to prevent cheating in games hahahaha

Well they are just to compare characters and decide what I want to play with. For example I create one play a little and create another and compare I do this in all games I play and after messing a lot even with the game options I usually delete everything and start fresh but since PSO save is server sided and there is no option I will have to deal with it :( But as a suggestion it would be nice to have a character control painel where you can delete your character so crazy ppl like me will never ask this again and bother you guys :)


You could create a new account.

Can I "overwrite" my account and make it clean? Like I go and use the same login name pass and e-mail but I create a hardcore one them I go and create a normal one overwriting everything and make all chars disappear? I really don't want to bother the admins here with my strange game decisions since I'm new :)



Also how can I make the game run in 4:3?

Yeah but even choosing a resolution with 4:3 next to it the game will still run widescreen!

EDIT: the only way to fix this was to make some changes in NVIDIA painel now the game runs in 4:3 res but I had to disable the Advanced Effects cause it will hang in the ship selection screen and I'm on win10! If I just use a wide res it will not hang even with the Advanced Effects on so what this Advanced Effects do exactly? will I lose something cool effects with it turned off?

I wasn't trying to insinuate that you were going to have cheating intentions. Was just legitimately curious.

I'd recommend to create a Sandbox account to test stuff out and then you can use those testings to decide on what you want to do in Normal Mode.

OK no problem man!

Almost used to the controls but sometimes I tend to try to press the roll button hahahaha but do you know if what I said can be done?
