So, from what I can understand so far, as long as you'r able to get both the old and new offset in hex, you already know your pointers? Sounds kinda easy, so maybe I'm missing soething here.

But I do remember reading something similar at the repositorys forum. Well, I guess I'll just try it out on a few english roms first.

But while we're at it, what was that about GBA/32X roms? Do they use a similar system?
