Will other people be able to read it, or only you?
All players can read, used game's font charset.

I still can't get any keyboard plugins to work though & let me type with my computer's keyboard.

It works with private messages too! And in entering the ID for a private message.

Oh and using this patch, users can now create their own half-width IDs in the ID select screen!

Enable Half-Width Roman Characters as Default Characters in File 1

EDIT: CORRECTED SEARCH VALUES

Open File 1 ISO in a hex editor:

Search for: 38 00 00 10 37 00 40 A0 E0 A3 82 8F 0F 00 03 24

Change to: 38 00 60 10 37 00 40 A0 E0 A3 82 8F 0F 00 03 24

Search for: 25 00 00 10 37 00 40 A0 E0 A3 82 8F 0F 00 03 24

Change to:25 00 60 10 37 00 40 A0 E0 A3 82 8F 0F 00 03 24

Enable the switch between half and full width (L2 on gamepad or F1 on keyboard)

seach hex value
C0 C0 7F 00 30 30 7F 00 7F 7F 7F 00 F8 F8 7F 00
change to
00 00 7F 00 30 30 7F 00 7F 7F 7F 00 F8 F8 7F 00

Interesting. Do you know where it might be located?

For anyone wondering - verified working!
I have done in last month, but busy for translate work, I will upadate soon, sorry.
I see the rule, can't release any patch, I can't remember hex valves, so hard to edit post, and now I use a phone, hardest to edit.
And I hope fog can help to creat a free chinese server, because our country have a GFW, most people can't connected this server, or unstable and lag, and most VPN was killing.

Even setting both input to Keyboard & rawinput won't let me type from keyboard.

Set keyboard to directinput in lily pad and then in nuvee options configure keyboard for pad 2. Remap the escape key in pcsx2 to something else so you can have escape be back button.

What HEX Editor are you guys using? Because mine can't find those values on File #1's ISO.

EDIT: My mistake! Corrected the values. I had input a wrong string into the forum. My post is now corrected.

It won't find 38 00 00 10 37 00 40 A0 E0 A3 82 8F 01 00 and 25 00 00 10 37 00 40 A0 E0 A3 82 8F?

I used hexedit.
I used the offset addresses instead, mine ended up as 38 00 00 10 37 00 40 A0 E0 A3 82 8F 0F 00.
By the way, do I have permission to post a Delta Patch?

Your string is correct - I made an error copying the string to the forum. Hold off on the Delta patch.

Interesting. Do you know where it might be located?

For anyone wondering - verified working!

I'll edit your first post to reflect the instructions. Do you know for a fact that the GFW blocks the Outbreak server ports? Also, is GFW=Great Firewall?

We have to make sure this patch does not break interaction with unaltered/unpatched games. If it works like intended it should be added to the translation patch imho.

This is good work btw. Thank you for sharing!

All's great, though the game's text starts glitching when you type too much:
