Quote from: Jaz on March 21, 2021, 08:29:38 PMIt took a while but I made a table for the in-game dialogue and when the dialogue is on the screen I can see the text in the video ram, but I can't find where it is located in the rom. Is the text stored differently in the rom?

Quote from: Vehek on March 22, 2021, 08:57:34 PMHow did you generate this text table? Is a full alphabet visible in VRAM, or just the components of the on-screen text? Is the table consistent between different lines of dialogue?
