Default Re: Genesis Pointers

Yeah it is! However, the Sonic scene is huge. As far as I know, pointers for the genesis are normal, Big Endian.

For example. In sonic the Hedgehog 1.
The graphics for crabby are at 035A06.
You could decompress that art, alter it, compress it, and stick it at the end of the ROM, wherever that is. I'll say it's 080F0E.

Then search the ROM in a hex editor for 00035A06. Two results should come up. They're both pointers! Change themn both to your new address (00080F0E) and your all set!

Might want to get used to hex first though.

The good part is the Big Endian. No need to add a number to the address like you do with GBA or 32X games.

That's how I do it with sonic games though.
