    Use cheat engine and dmul, and go research until I found textures that edited the menus, then I assumed they should be close until I found them


    with cheat engine and dmul you are editing in real time, although many times it freezes by touching something not due as pointers

    If you have time please share a video or a tutorial.

    Really what do you look for?
    Press Start Botton? On the Grandia 2?

    If so, you have that text in the file GR2TITLE.BIN offset 0xD460
    I have not tried it

    Thanks for answering quicky :)
    I'm looking for the method with nulldc and debugger for finding the highlighted area during menu
    Like you have to choice "yes" or "no" for example.
    In french is "oui" or "non" so the highlited area is no good after translating.

    thanks to @yzb37859365 I could change the highlited in one menu but others are different...

    If I understand well you had to do that for blue stinger in the main menu.
    I'm sorry I don't want to be off topic.

    So without knowing where that highlighted area is, it is impossible for me to look for anything.

    You could put a screenshot where that menu appears

    Please if you have time a look here :
    https://assemblergames.com/threads/...ia-2-into-the-dreamcast-version.67554/page-10

    For me it's more simple to check in the GR2TITLE.BIN for Yes/No -> Oui/Non highlighted problem, the others are in the field.bin but this is a huger bin file.
    @yzb37859365 try to help me but I notice nothing in field.bin at 0x29C30 but I notice nothing about highlighted...

    Don't forget your project for mine ;-) I'm really happy to try your blue stinger version soon, even if I don't speak spanish. The work you are doing makes me want to see it.

    I understand, what you want is to resize the illuminated area that carries the text.

    Quiet I have a few projects in progress, the Blue Stinger already testing it, now I am repairing some textures of the sega rally 2 Jap.

    As soon as I finish I will try to help you, but I promise nothing.

    Yeah that's it :)

    Thanks to have a look and tried to help me, please stay focus on your projects. I still continue to find it by myself.
