Porting Levels from one Mega Man IV US hack to another
« on: April 14, 2020, 03:26:02 pm »
I've been using Matrixz's Comprehensive Document, and I can see the level data for each stage. I know also that the CHR banks start at 20011. What I don't understand is whether the CHR data is arranged in the same order as the level data, how long it is per stage, and whether there is anything besides the "Level Data" and CHR Data that is necessary to make a stage show up properly. To give an example of what I'd like to do, I would like to take the Dive Man stage in Schwa's "Gadget Master" hack, and replace Cossack 3 in the vanilla game with it. Is there any information besides the Level and CHR data that I would need to do this? How do I locate the correct CHR data for each stage?

Thank you in advance for your help with this!
