Been following this project for a little while now, and I must say, keep up the good work!
To get my feet wet in ROM hacking (as well as get me more experienced with game dev in general), I'm using this to make a hack with Toejam and Earl's girlfriends, Lewanda and Latisha. What I would like to do with the hack is put a different, feminine spin on the game, with new playable characters, new dialogue, new voices, new foods, and even a new story too.
I do have a few questions, however.
* If the music is ever included in the disassembly, how easy or hard would it be to replace songs? If possible, I'd like to replace "Toejam Slowjam" with "Ode to Sharla" from Panic on Funkotron.
* Will this disassembly allow for full-on text string editing in the future? I got a head start on the hack by replacing some of the text, and I found that if I type anything that exceeds the character limit, other lines will read as jumbled gibberish. For instance, changing "jammin!" to "stylin!" appears correctly, but changing "c'mon earl" to "c'mon lewanda" will fuck up the rest of the gameplay text.
* Would this allow for editing the tile spacing on certain graphics? Once I make the girls' sprites, they'll probably be taller than Toejam or Earl. Plus, trying to fit Lewanda's name into the HUD is proving to be tough, since "Lewanda" has far more letters than "Earl".
* How do I edit the "Toejam & Earl" logo at the beginning? I see the file in here, but when I try to open it with Retro Graphics Toolkit, it gives me an error message.
Thanks and looking forward to more! Hopefully with this project, as well as the recently released Back in the Groove, the Toejam & Earl series will finally start to get the recognition it deserves.
