Title: Wizardry 1-2-3 Stuffs (primarily PAR-wise)
Post by: Isao Kronos on January 26, 2008, 07:09:11 PM
I'm trying to make money codes for the transed version of Wizardry 1-2-3 for the heck of it. But I seem to have hit a MASSIVE HURDLE. GP is stored extremely strangely for me, and I'm not used to that. All I can figure is it's stored in HEX, and I dunno how to make HEX money codes properly. Anyone have any tips? If I can get some help with this, I might post a guide somewhere on my blog (with credit to whoever helps me of course). After money comes HP. But I'll worry about THAT later.

Like I said, any help is appreciated, I'd ask around on RHDN, but those people scare me especially after the Mother 3 debacle. And I don't do romhacking. I make codes for myself, and sometimes others. Emulation is the only time I ever fiddle around with games.

If you use ZSNES, you can search/make codes using hexadecimal instead of base 10.

Enix did weird crap like this for their stuff too, case in point: Terranigma, which stored money and experience as hexadecimal, bypassing A-F in it's calculations

You mean BCD (binary-coded decimal)?

For the life of me, I still can't figure out how it's stored. Now HEX isn't working either.

Try using fuzzy logic. Treat the value as unknown and simply indicate that it has raised or lowered every time you run a search. If you still have no luck, I'll try it myself.

That did the trick, you have to do a Comparative search. Now to work on HP.
