Hello, Romhacking community. My question may be a predictable one, and I may not have chosen the correct Sub-Forum. Nevertheless, I hope I can get some assistance on a matter.
I'm a huge fan of Bubble Bobble for the NES, due to its excellent co-op elements. I've always been curious about when the game was officially released in the United States. "November, 1988" seems to be the accepted timeframe, but some have claimed November 28th, as well. Therefore, I wanted to look through the game with a Hex Editor to see if I can find a Build Date left by the developers, which seems to have been a common practice back then, as well. I have been unsuccessful, mostly due to my inexperience in the field. I was wondering if there were any tips or better strategies to use when hunting for a Build Date within a game file.
Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and help!
