Here it is...

Je n'y crois pas! Un. h~ros, `a devrait .tre une. masse de muscles arm~e. jusqu'aux dents, pas quelqu'un. qui joue | la marelle!.. Essayez toujours, mais ce jeu. n'a vraiment aucun int~r.t |. c.t~ de DKC, qui n'~tait d~j|. pas une gloire!...

Moi,. dans mon jeune temps je. n'aurais jamais ~t~ captur~!.... Je n'ai m.me pas deux. ~crans pour moi! Je suis sƒr. que K. Rool en a deux. . Pourquoi pas moi alors?... Il est encore temps de laisser. tomber avant que les gosses ne. s'aper`oivent que le meilleur. c'~tait Donkey!.... O‚ est donc pass~e Expresso?. Une araign~e empot~e et un. perroquet lourdaud, on aura. tout vu!... Regardez-moi toutes ces. cochonneries! Ils traitent ma. ma. on comme si c'~tait une. d~charge publique, aucun. respect pour leurs a€n~s!... Quelle plaie de rester enferm~. dans ce baril miteux,. j'aimerais mieux .tre assis. dehors comme la derni}re fois..... Cette fois-ci, K. Rool va vous. donner une racl~e, bande de. garnements! Je viens | la. rescousse, `a m'~vitera de. vous voir rougir de honte!... Tous pour un? Je n'ai jamais. entendu une telle {nerie! De. mon temps, j'~tais seul contre. tous!.. Ne serait-il pas plus logique. que Dixie soit une jolie. princesse que l'on viendrait. arracher des griffes des

That's really weird. It sounds like some character explaining the situation in DKC3. I wonder if there was supposed to be a letter like in the second game?

Hate to burst your bubble, but this is nothing more than leftover text data from DKC2, used to pad empty space. 37A923-37AFFF in the (U) version of DKC3 is identical to the same offset range in DKC2 (U) Revision 1.1. The byte you rendered as a lowercase k at the beginning of the text is not a character, but the end of a DKC3 subroutine (6B is the 65c816 return from subroutine long (RTL) opcode). The text gets cut off at 37B000 in the DKC3 ROM by a JMP opcode to $F28D (4C 8D F2).

Also, you need to apply a table file in order to read that text correctly. The game actually uses the tilde (~) character's ASCII value to display an e with an accent mark (é).

Still, it's strange that empty space would appear in the middle of a bank, rather than the end of it...

EDIT: Well, now you know! :geek:

That does not burst my bubble at all, I wanted to know what it was.

Nah, I'd leave it here, as someone may eventually ask the same thing again. So, moved to ROM hacking section.
