I've had an interest in creating a fan translation for Medarot Perfect Edition on the Wonderswan for a while, but quite frankly I'm having a hard time finding a central source for information/tools on the Wonderswan.
I've been working with the GB tools for romhacking for a while, and have been spoiled by them. Between BGB, rgbds, and the plethora of documentation on the Gameboy, I've had no real trouble doing whatever I needed to do.
I've had no such luck with the Wonderswan. I've been trying to use Mednafen's Wonderswan emulator + debugger, but the debugger interface leaves a lot to be desired (the terminal-only interface requires me to be quite meticulous and resolution scaling on my monitor has been a bit troublesome). Trying to find docs on google about how the Wonderswan hardware works has also been a nightmare (though, this page
has been super helpful), and I haven't even tried figuring out a proper workflow to actually build and apply a patch (has everyone prior just used a disassembler or hex editor or something?).
I'm at wit's end and was hoping someone with more experience with the Wonderswan might be able to point me to anything useful, or let me know if my only hope is just to bite the bullet and keep chugging along.
