I've been away for a while, my family has had me occupied
One of my favorite NES games is Kid Icarus, but the password system is so tedious to use.
So I wanted to get more in to NES hacking other than text altering.
I've followed some of our forum friends hacks (Retrorain, umaggot) and I do understand the principle of storing information in the $6000-$8FFF RAM range.
I've managed to hijack a routine in the ROM (bank 7, always available in Kid Icarus if I've understood it correctly) and moved it inside a new routine, made by me, just to see if it works.
So everytime I collect a heart that's been left when an enemy has been killed, the heart counter will increase and that value will be stored at $6200. I used $6200 because there seemed to be values written to$6000-$60AC.
And that is now working successfully.
But now I would like to try and load data from SRAM.
I was thinking of hacking the menu after you press start at the title screen. If i push the start button at Continue, how can I then hijack into my load-routine and then start my game with hearts loaded from my SRAM?
Sorry for the newbie questions, but we're all newbs at the beginning right?
