The World is Pretty Odd

I've tried this once before and failed, but my second attempt was met with a different consequence. I am, of course, referring to my day's efforts to hack the game script for The World Ends With You for the DS. As much of the binary code as I've deciphered, I'm reluctant to change too much at this point - it's pretty easy to re-write the literal dialog bubbles, but I have a sneaking suspicion that modifying the quantity of bubbles in any given scene in the game script will either result in undefined behaviour or just flat-out crash the DS.

Perhaps when all is said and done I can provide a means to share my revised game script with the world - if I do rewrite the entire game, that is. The proof of concept was a nice reward for me, but actually changing the entire script might prove a bit tiresome. It's a JRPG, after all. They love their dialog.
