Is there a tool or emulator that allows one to see the graphics content of a ROM?

I'm interested in extracting titles and fonts for translation purposes.

Thanks!

Depends on the graphics mode.

I have had some succes with tile layer pro in the past. It work well for me to determin the location of some gfx.

You can also use the excellent tool called Tile Molester:

- Classic Version
- Revamped Version

Unfortunately TLP and TM didn't work on Randar no Buoken 3. I was hoping to extract complete font sets from the game.

Thanks for the help though.

@ReyVGM

TM worked fine here for Randar-3's fonts:

- Codec: 1bpp planar
- Mode: 2 dimensional
- Block-size: 2x2
- Row-Interleaved: off

Hey, you're right. I can now see the Japanese font. But I still don't see the English one.
I already found the standard one used for the name entry, but not the one used to write "Adventure of Randar III" when you start the game.

You mean the screen with the (c) 1990 COMPILE and a green map on the background? Do you want the entire screen or just the text written below the golden "III"?

No, what comes after 1990 COMPILE and before the screen with the map. Where it says "Adventure of Randar 3".

But I don't need it anymore though. I made my own font in that same style and inserted it into the game.
Thanks for all the help sd_snatcher!
