Cartographer and Lorom?
« on: April 14, 2011, 10:51:12 pm »
I'm working with Cartographer and trying to get a good script dump of a lorom snes game.  I can dump the raw text with no problems, but does anyone know if Cartographer supports LoRom, and if so, what syntax the commands file needs to get it to dump the pointers are?

Care to post an example of the pointer and the address of the string it points to in the ROM file? LoROM doesn't matter. You just have to take the pointer value and determine how much you have to add or subtract to it to get the correct value for the string address.

I figured out what I was doing wrong.  The base pointer needed to be adjusted by an extra $8000 to the base pointer address to accommodate.  Pretty basic stuff.  /facepalm
