There is still the problem with allowing spaces on the heroes names. Any idea what caused it?
Ok so I looked into this and I've traced it back to the point at which this had happened. Turns out, the routine to load the password from SRAM to RAM is the culprit. I tried switching it back to my gigantic version of the code, and the same thing happens. But this is as far as I've got so far(I'm at work). Perhaps filling the spaces with FF's after "START" and "CONTINUE" both use the same routine? I'll keep looking but I don't think this is a blocker for the hack...even though it's weird and/or annoying.
On the other hand, I've added your names to the game
...I added them to the name entry screen because I didn't want to mess with the texts at the title...they look so nice!
Here's the latest version(0.99):https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3c4zWxe_g5OaUZtcklSS3JITkk
I've test played the game all the way up to midway of Phthia right after I got the sword. And everything seems to work good! The new drop rate and reduced penalty for olives makes the game A LOT more enjoyable.
Oh, and before I forget, any suggestions on a name for this hack?
Battle of Olympus: Re-balanced + SRAM Saving
Battle of Olympus: Modernized + SRAM Saving
Battle of Olympus: SRAM + Olives
Battle of Olympus: I Love My Olives
Battle of Olympus: The Adventure of Orpheus

I recreated the original routine and put it at 0x01FDB0, and pointed to it after "START"!
These are great because I'm learning more and more and learning more on how to use FCEUX! I finally got a hang of the Trace Logger!!
I'll upload the fixed version soon!

Hey abw nesrocks or anyone that can help,
I need your help to decode and rewrite some texts that's in one of those cryptic formats at the last password/save spot in Tartarus. This time, there's an old guy giving out the word of gods instead of a god, and his message is different! And yes, it's in that cryptic format that abw helped decode before.
Can someone help me locate and rewrite this text from:
Let me tell you the word of the gods.
Let me tell you the word of the gods. Game saved.
Any help would be much appreciated!

I've located the text. It's at:
Now to rewrite it....

Actually due to it only having 28 spaces instead of the previous slot of 32, or 2C after we rewrote it, we should probably change the texts to:
"The word of the gods. Game saved."

I think I figured it out...stay tuned.

Ugh...looks like I got everything except the last letter wrong...
Here's the code:
I'll keep looking at this.
If any of you have any suggestions, please let me know.
