    IDK. I've never used it. But .png is a picture format. (Only saying that in case you didn't know)

    What you can do is, get a bunch of pics in .png format, arrange them, make w/e text file and you should be good. :?

    1.) Get all the .pngs you want in a group.

    2.) "w/e" is "whatever".

    3.) You make a text document into a document like this:

    >a.) Open a new text document
    >b.) Click "Save As"
    >c.) "Save As Type" should be "All Files"
    >d.) "Encoding" should be "Unicode"
    >e.) Name the file w/e you want, but change the ".txt" to ".png"

    That's it.

    Sorry Josh, I forgot what thread I posted in. IKD how to do this b/c I have never made my own DOCUMENT.DAT.

    ok i have been haveing the same problem and i have finnally figured it out what you need to do is goto paint make a text box and past your text for your faq in there then save it as a png and put it into the doc maker program and it will work fine, the only problem with this is with games like ffvii you need to make ALOT of .png files so it takes forever...easiest way is to just use the media manager but then you cant view them while in game so you can do it like this and it will work...good luck and it took about 3 hours for me to make the ff7 one......soooooooo long

    I dont really need them b/c I dont play FF but why dont you host them? Make a zip or rar of your files and upload them somewhere like rapidshare.

    -EDIT, Im not you have to im just saying why not?

    Well I think I speak for the people that want it when I say thanks. BTW, what is FF? Is it like a RPG?

    I knew what FF stood for but thats about it. Whats the actual gameplay like though? Like is it a futuristic thing or like an older realm type thing or what?

    -EDIT, corrected word.

    lol its a little of both actually, it takes magic and summons mixed with a future world of guns on hands, flying machines, and talking dogs, all in all id say its more set in the past but with a few places hording all the technology all i can say is if u havent tried this game out i highly recomend it, i hated rpgs then i played this and i couldnt believe what i was missing, now its my favorite genre and its all thanks to final fantasy 7!

    Hmmmmm, maybe I'll try it. Where do I start? Should I just get FFVII converted to an EBOOT to play on my PSP?
