HI!! i have never posted so names Protorock >:D

Intro of some failed attempts at asm:
I have been practicing for a year how to hack, I am not kidding, got into a asm course in VTC, to then figure out every pc I try Nasm in, gives me a access denied message, after many many attempts I quit for a while, to little programs like Lunar compress by Fusoya.

Tutorial for lunar compress with megaman X:
these are my secrets, and i shall share them with you so yeah...

So here's my tutorial of how to use Lunar compress, since I have noticed nobody knows how.

1.Download lunar compress from fusoya

2. look for you're command.exe and type decomp.exe megamanx.smc (THE NAME OF YOURE MEGAMAN ROM) mmx.bin (WHERE YOU'RE GRAPHICS WILL GO TO) 1418AB (thats the bunny from chill penguins stage) 102 3840

3.So it actually looks like: decomp.exe megamanx.smc mmx.bin 1418AB 102 3840

press enter and the bin will be created, you can see them by playing around with programs like tile molester....

for people who don't know how to use tile molester
File>Open>mmx.bin
Codec>4bpp
now use wall button 12th from left tor right upper part
Image>Load save state
Play with Divide and sums in upper right corner till garbage is out
then adjust Palette in down left corner

NOW PLEASE HELP ME:

While i was doing my crazy experiments i did this

sniff.exe megamax.smc 0 ffffff 102 3840 1 0

do you know....
what
happened>??!!!

i compressed all the graphics from megaman x to one bin!!!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Actually you decompressed them to bin, this is why the bin is so big.

Make it a snes game = absolutely not. This is just plain gfx in its actual form (without the compression algorithm applied).

Recompress this bin back once the bin was edited = Sure there is a way, that's the whole point. The problem is that I've done this only for Alttp
using zcompress, which was also done by Fusoya and works in a similar way.

decompress
zcompress.exe nameofrom.smc 0 gfx.bin or
zcompress.exe nameofrom.smc 0 (pc hex address of the start of gfx string) gfx.bin

decompress
zcompress.exe nameofrom.smc 1 (pc hex address of the rom to write the gfx code to) gfx.bin or


examples
zcompress.exe Alttp.smc 0 allgfx.bin (decompress)
zcompress.exe Alttp.smc 1 87000 allgfx.bin (recompress)
In Alttp the gfx data starts at 87000 in hex.

BUT, the rom must have a header! and must have the exact size, usually 2001FF expansion in hex tends to alway work for a 1MB game.




You might want to read the included txts for lunar compress to find the exact command line, you are looking for the Megaman gfx.

I'm really confused on this actually.  What you wrote down for sniff.exe doesn't work AT all from what I'm testing.  It just errors out.
'We have to find some way to incorporate the general civilians in the plot.'
