Oh, that's a shame. Well, even if you can't manage to salvage my save game, I hope you are able to figure out what happened so it doesn't happen to anyone else. 🤞
EDIT: Using your hint, I looked at my treasures list in game and it had a whole bunch of normal items in it. I loaded a much older save state and noticed it was fine. Using the information at this page
, I was able to find out where the treasures are in RAM and comparing the two save states, I think I managed to fix my treasure list. I am now able to beat Moloch and get the Lost Orb just fine.
EDIT 2: I managed to finish the game. I watched the treasures list in memory while I was playing, and I noticed that any time it removes a treasure, it actually removes the byte and shifts all of the memory left. Could this be how it got messed up?
