I need a little help with table files
« on: April 18, 2018, 07:58:15 pm »
So I'm following the guide "how to make table files" by kevtav. It was all going okay until it said to download "search relative 2". I followed the link it provided, but couldn't find the program anywhere on the site. is there an alternative program that I could use?

Considering that's a DOS program, though, you'll probably want some other program capable of doing a relative search.

To be honest, I never use relative searching at all, there's always a better way to find text. What system are you looking at? If it's the NES then it's very easy to find the text, and just making a table file is usually as easy as looking at the order of the kana in the graphics bank.
