Default Text help with a River City ransom hack

Hi everyone! Im new to this forum, and romhacking, but in about two weeks, I edited most of the text and some graphics in the River City Ransom.

I use Thingy32(got used to it and all), and thanks to it, I got through some tough stuff. Thing is though, in some places of Thingy, I wrote over the "#" to another text, and now my rom Hack is screwed up in that part! <img src=smilies/errrr.gif>

All I need to know is how can I type the "#" back again? Im reckoning that if I write it back in the original place, everything will be normal again.

-Thank you in advanced

IIRC, Thingy32 uses the # sign to mask characters that aren't defined in you table. Meaning, if you overwrote a #, you possibly (and, in this case, probably) overwrote some of the program data (as opposed to text or graphical data).

The fix is simple enough. Get the address of the # that you overwrote. Open up the original (unmodified) RCR rom, and go to that address. It will contain the proper value. Go back to your hacked rom and replace the value you added with the original. Done deal.

And remember, always make backups <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>
