This is an automated message generated by Romhacking.net's RHDNBot.

Update By: D

These documents were copied and pasted from the ones found on http://www.cinnamonpirate.com/.

Most of the documents are on file formats, not 'how-to's, but they still might be useful for anyone having to take apart a resource file format for the first time. Also included is my document on the internal ROM information for BS-X games.

Documents Include:

That was actually a royal pain in the ass to separate and process all of those.  I should have had one of you lackey's do it. Instead, you guys just let it sit in the queue. :P

By the way FEIDIAN was added to the site as well.  I can't believe we didn't already have that here.

You may want to change the game listing for the WindThunder ones to say Heroine Anthem. Though they called it WindThunder format, I have only seen it used in Heroine Anthem, Heroine Anthem II Demo, and Heroine Anthem II.

It was not used in any of their earlier releases, and I'm unaware whether it's used in that new Arabian Nights based online game they made.

I know, I read the documents. I choose multiple because it is for Heroine Anthem 1+2.  It may only be two games, and very similar games at that, but that's still more than one. ;) Pointing it to Heroine Anthem would mean adding the actual Heroine Anthem 1 OR 2 game to the database.  The entry could only point to one. It just wouldn't be technically correct. Because the system works on individual games, that's why the multi-game option was added.

I made the descriptions directly from some of the information you had in the docs, therefore the description explicitly mentions HA1+2. I figure that's clear enough.

Ok.

Question, do you want me to submit the tools I've written for all my projects to the archive? They're all publically available on my website anyway. I'm not sure if they're worth including or not.

D, submit them. Otherwise you'll bitch in two years when they're lost in a format.

Oh, you plan to add my files this time instead of losing them all?

Not losing in HD crashes is precisely why I started making all my tools public as of three years ago ...
