So, I haven't really been into ROMhacking for awhile. To get back into the swing of things, I decided to map out the SRM of Final Fantasy V. I've managed to map out quite a bit of it, but its useless unless I can calculate the correct checksums.
So, Does anyone know which one is needed for the SNES? They are stored as a 2-byte number, so my guess is some flavor or other of crc16. My question is, which one? There are several according to wikipedia.
Extra-Super-Special bonus points if someone knows a program that will calculate it for me, that runs under Linux.
(I know it'll still take some playing around to find exactly what data it uses for the checksum, but I don't want to be using an incorrect version, because then I'll never find it!).
Thanks for your help guys!
