Zelda ALttP Room Header Expander
« on: April 17, 2012, 03:56:27 pm »
Hey, i have no idea if there are LoZ: ALttP guy's here, but here is a little program i wrote.

Due to the lack of Hyrule Magic in using all 4 staircases/doors for each room, i wrote a little program that does that. You have a text file in which you can write your rooms and then execute it after editing with Hyrule Magic to add the rooms.
Look at the readme file for explanations.

Big thanks to MathOnNapkins for his documents and personal help :-).

The program is called "Room Header Expander"

If someone find it useful, please give me a little feedback :-).

If it were possible to expand the rom, it might be better to expand the entire header for each room to a fixed length.  That could even allow for extra data or flags to be coded in as well.  Still sounds useful though.

Thank you.
Yes your right, but the problem is, that would move all other data in the rom and so all pointer tables were corrupt.
And i think Hyrule Magic wouldn't open a rom that is modified this way.
So this is at the moment the only way i know. I have noticed that Hyrule Magic seems to make mistakes by reading out the room headers and so it is not everytime sure if a staircase/door works correctly. With this little program it works better. Only the planes are missing but they will follow.
