Title: Mega Man 2 Credits Hacking
Post by: vince94 on March 22, 2016, 11:54:56 am
I'd like to hack the end credits of Mega Man 2 (https://youtu.be/UiT_3kwgvwQ?t=2m34s) (located around 024B00) to include everyone's full names, as found here (http://whoiscapcom.wikia.com/wiki/Megaman_2) (or at least their actual last names, there are only about 88 unused/free bytes after the last string that I'd be able to take advantage of).
Does anyone know how the text is pointed to, and/or how to find where that data is located?
I've previously done pointer table hacking with EarthBound Beginnings (https://youtu.be/ovfSFCZQqhs), so I already have a general idea of how these things work. The programmer probably used a slightly different system/technique, though, and the only reason I knew where to find EBB's pointers was because the offset was already listed on Data Crystal.
