Zelda Oracle of Ages Hacking
« on: January 06, 2017, 06:25:13 pm »
So I noticed there is yet another great game which does not have any completed ROM hacks yet! As soon as I finish my CV3 hack I will be moving on to ZoOA, but I figured I already have some questions so I figured I would just make a thread for them here.
For starters, I was messing with graphics and I noticed that I couldn't find the location of the intro/title screen or the in game font grapchis.
Any ideas where these may be? (I've checked on data crystal already)

I'm glad I logged in today. I get to plug my wiki for Oracle of Ages (and Seasons, ostensibly) hacking: http://wiki.zeldahacking.net/oracle/Main_Page

There isn't THAT much useful information yet. However, in the "Common hacking questions" section, you'll find an invite link to a Discord server where I hang out most of the time. You can find the other Oracle of Ages hackers there. (There aren't many)

As for editing the titlescreen; the bad news is, the graphics are compressed. The good news is, it can be edited through the disassembly. The bad news is, it's a pain to set up. The good news is, I made a page explaining how to set it up.

I'm basically looking for any opportunity to spill out my knowledge of this game, so uh, let me know if you have any questions. =P

EDIT: The font is at 70000, but it doesn't look quite right to me.

They helped me figure it out on Discord. You need to set it to 1bpp as opposed to 2bpp.

P.S. JOIN DISCORD

I tried that. I guess I forgot to try 1bpp in conjuction with FC/NES x 16.

Sounds like a trap.

Sadly, I retired from Oracles hacking a while ago.  I also don't seem to have the patience to finish hacks either.  I was thinking about starting one for The Goonies 2, but getting started is the hard part.

Maybe I should take a look at this discord sometime in the future.
