I know how to find text or mildly compressed text in NES/SNES/GB games, so I'm not a complete noob. But I'm at a total loss when it comes to N64 games.
I'm trying to find the dialogue text for the game Aidyn Chronicles (which could have easily have been called Elder Scrolls 64), which happens to have a ton of character specific dialogues depending on who your party is, how you answer questions, where do you go first, etc.
I open the rom with notepad+ and hexecute, and the only thing that stored in ASCII are the item and enemy names. But the letters are not even in order, for example, the enemy "Tomb Rat" is spelled "oTmbR ta" inside the ROM.
I tried using the tool called SearchR3, that helps me find compressed text, which I can use to build a table. But I couldn't find any dialogue text.
So, does anyone know what tool can I use to find the script, or maybe an experienced gracious person can dump it for me?
Thanks in advance!
