Help with compressed NES graphics
« on: June 05, 2020, 11:23:00 am »
I'm just throwing this out there in case anyone is interested in helping.

I'm working on a translation of Princess Tomato and pretty much all of the hacking work is done. The only thing that remains is to replace the handful of graphics that are compressed. Years back I successfully bypassed the compression (don't remember how) for the title screen and loaded uncompressed tiles. So the graphics really only need to decompressed.

Sounds good to me. I've bypassed the compression on other systems like the GB and all I needed was a savestate to get the decompressed graphics.
