Header: fxcg/file.h
Syscall index: 0x1DDB
Function signature: void Bfile_NameToStr_ncpy(unsigned char* dest, const unsigned short* source, int n)

Converts a 16 bit string (array of unsigned short), suitable for use with Bfile syscalls, to a 8 bit string (array of unsigned char).


  • unsigned char* dest - Pointer to a buffer that will hold the resulting 8 bit string.
  • const unsigned short* source - Pointer to a 16 bit string containing the path to convert.
  • int n - How many bytes to convert (length of the source string, see #Comments for information on the behavior of the syscall wen the length doesn't match n).


If the length of source is below n, dest is padded. If source is terminated by 0xFFFF, dest is padded with 0xFF, otherwise it is padded with 0x00.

Bfile_StrToName_ncpy does the opposite of this syscall.
