Quote from: MOTHERrocks on May 27, 2023, 07:37:54 PMI think that these are debugging symbols that Nintendo never bothered to remove.
QuoteIt might even be possible to automatically recover source code with this that's very similar to Nintendo's with not much effort.
Quote from: Jorpho on May 28, 2023, 12:34:04 PMIf you don't already know of other games with something similar, then what exactly leads you to that conclusion..?
Quote from: Jorpho on May 28, 2023, 12:34:04 PMConsidering the translation patch was an absolutely enormous effort, I very much doubt something of considerably greater complexity could be accomplished with "not much effort". There may very well be developments in the scene that I haven't been following, but I don't think anyone's ever established what language the game was written in to begin with.
Quote from: MOTHERrocks on May 28, 2023, 02:32:23 PMIf these aren't debugging symbols, then why would they be here?
QuoteAfter all, if you're debugging, it's helpful to know the name of the function that the game crashed on, but there's no other reason to include them.
Quotebut most of it was the actual translation
QuoteWhen I say that it could be used to recreate the source code, there's a port in active development (as of May 2023) of EarthBound to the PC
