Good simple tutorial

Reviewed By: Yauch on 12 Jan 2011

Another pretty old tutorial but it has many pictures and gets you hacking right away.

This tutorial uses

  • Hex Workshop
  • Thingy
  • Tile Layer Pro
  • Zelda II ROM
  • Final Fantasy (J) ROM
  • Relative Searcher

It explains that hex corresponds to letters. It assumes that there is a full alphabet and relative searching will always work. How to make a table file. Lastly translating from Cave Speech.

This tutorial is presented better then many of the other early tutorials, but it only covers the basics.
