I'm continuing my project to add SRAM Saving function to our beloved cult classic - The Guardian Legend. With the help from Mauron and Disch from my previous topic, SRAM Saving has been added to the game and is pretty much done!
However, due to the extremely limited space in the ROM, I'm unable to add in texts on the Password screen indicating to player to either "Press A to Load Game, or Input Password". All I'm able to fit in the ROM is "Press A".
So, unless someone can help me figure out how to fit more texts on the screen, I'm stuck with just "Press A". Now, if that's all that can be done, where do you think would be a good place to put the text? Here are some ideas:
Which one do you think works best to tell the player to Press A to Load?
Any ideas or suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated!
Ok, so I was able to sneak in some texts for the password screen at the expense of the box-zoom animation when you enter the screen because I needed the space in the ROM file:
What does everyone think?
Is this worth gutting the box-zooming animation at the password entry screen?
Any inputs are welcomed!
Upon checking the game more, removing that set of instructions screwed up the saving/password screen at the Blue Lander royally:
However, I think I might have a plan B if I can get a little ASM help for MMC3 games.
I found a bunch of space used for dialog in the ROM file. Now, I can rewrite some of the longer dialogs and use that space for the text on the password screen, but I have a problem. I don't know how to 'JMP' to that area of the ROM in ASM. The instructions for the password screen is located at around 0x00C360, however, the extra space that I need is at around 0x015650.
Does anyone know what instructions I need to JMP from 0x00C360 to 0x015650 in ASM?
Any help would be much appreciated!!
