Help finding pointers (GBC) SRP
« on: May 18, 2021, 12:45:12 am »
Hi there, I am trying to translate super robot pinball for the gameboycolor.
I have managed to extract the font of the game and its 3 tables, I want to extract the text of the game using cartographer, but at the moment I am having trouble finding the pointers.

My first text is at the offset $0x40061 so i do my math:

0x40061/0x4000=0x10
0x10*0x4000=0x40000

0x40061-0x40000+0x4000=0x4061 > 6140 pointer

$40000-$43FFF //Table pointer should be around here.

but doing a hex search i cant find anything.

I try with my next texts.

0x40140 4140  4041 pointer
0x40210 4210  1042 pointer

and still nothing. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

I am trying to extract from offsets
0x40061 to 0x42796.
via raw but that ends on a huge file with a lot trash data in between texts.

Text looks like this


The first text is 122bytes long so I look right after and before the text searching for $7C value or any close and still nothing.

Any help is appreciated.
