SNES offset to GBA offset. Is conversion possible?
« on: October 01, 2012, 11:25:35 am »
The question is in the title. I was looking over some documents I was sent in a PM found here: http://slickproductions.org/docs/FF5/monster%20data.txt And wondered if it were possible to create a conversion formula/tool of SNES offsets that would make them into GBA offsets, and in theory, be simple yet offer all the knowledge we have on the SNES version.

Correct. Look at the data in the SNES ROM, see if you can find a match in the GBA.
Haven't looked at the data in either, so I don't know if they used the same format, but it's probably a safe bet the GBA version was programmed from scratch, and as a result the SNES offsets would have no direct correspondence to the GBA.
