Intriguing

And it did that just fine. Now I'm confused why I got that error in the first place. I get the same error if I just scroll down, but once I use your method to find the right spot, scrolling up and...

Thumbs up Okay...

I use Windows XP Professional 64-bit. We're thinking of switching to Win7 though. Also, I'm on an admin account, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for the info on the file I needed.

Question Help with editor?

This thread is more than a year old, but it's short and my concerns seem to fit exactly with the topic, so here goes:

Question Dragon Warrior IV Font and Text Problems

I swear I'm either too lazy or too easily distracted to ever get skillz in hacking, but here I am again, trying it out.

So I've been toying with the Dragon Warrior IV ROM. Trying to at least find...

Palette

Well, my goal is to have control over which palette gets used by any given tile (or at least small set of tiles, as it appears 4 tiles go together to make a normal game tile of 16x16), so that I...

Cool Possibilities

I'd go with "Anything is possible, but some changes are a lot harder to make than other changes."

Assuming the graphics are easily accessible in Tile Layer Pro, changing the graphics is usually a...

Question NES Palette Hack (Dragon Warrior IV)

Okay, so I've easily found the graphics in Dragon Warrior IV, and managed to shift them to graphics from Ultima: Quest of the Avatar. Fun.

I will indeed search around a little more to see if I can make edits elsewhere with greater ease and less craziness.

Cool 1BPP

Yeah, that's how I found the big font to begin with, in 1BPP. The Genesis format gives me a bunch of miscellaneous colors that currently don't make any sense to me (I'm still getting used to hunting...

Cool Will do

Makes sense.



A basic relative search for "haz" (from "Chaz") turns up tons of occurrences. A basic search for "ready" turns up one at 002A-A712 (A=19, a=39, 0=08), a set of values I've gotten...

Well, that was an interesting experiment.

Talking That worked

Okay, so now I've got the font available. I'm guessing, since I don't see any digraphs, that they're definitely in the code, and thus much easier for me to mess around with once I find them.

The .bin vs. .smd thing strikes a chord. I checked and the ROM itself, in the .zip backup I have, is .bin - Sorcerers Kingdom (U) (REV 01) [!].bin, to be precise.
