Like 10 years ago, I used to find compressed text in NES games all the time, but now I completely forgot how to do it.
I know how to build a table and everything, but to first find the values to build the table, I need to find at least one compressed word/letter. So how I do it when most hex editors just show you the uncompressed text?
The game in question is Athletic World, which is a really early NES game that shouldn't be too difficult to crack.
Forget it, I remember now. I needed to use a program called Font Searcher, which finds compressed text. And with that I could build the table file!
