Title: Rom layout and general info
Post by: ayah on July 29, 2018, 10:29:04 AM
Hi,

I was wondering if there is a compiled topic for where data/code lays in the rom.
I this (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1nsDI-Bx6p65X25CPGdJOk8K-WVsYjYTBEN-i_bR8bdk/edit) is what I am looking for?

This is for the GS2 ROM? The mention of GS3 is irrelevant for this document, right?

EDIT: I also read that the source for the editor was released at some point, but I was unable to find it.
Where would I go about looking into that?

Thanks,
ayah

Yep! That was like one of my first hacking docs.... and eventually I created one for GS1/GS3... links to those are also in my signature.
Of course, the first real game I've actually did extensive research on was Superstar Saga, but that was when Salanewt and I were making topics at YL for each thing... later, some PIT/BIS...  So didn't really use a Google  Doc for it until much much later. So at this point, it seems fair to say that I'm most knowledgeable on GS2's data when it comes to data in games.

Atrius made his program open sourced starting with 0.5 Alpha, that can be found in the News & Announcements section of the forum. There was a point in which I tried to modify his editor a bit... etc.) But anyway, ever since then, I have discontinued my own work on his editor... and have started my own. (The plan is my own will also stay open-sourced, so don't worry.)

Ohhh in News and Announcements.
I was searching the Editor section and even googled v0.5, but just could not find it.

I take it your Editor is still in design stage.
There is no repository up, yet?

There's a GSHC Discord. I usually post updates/versions on my gsmagic program there when I have something to say. (I can go on long hiatuses sometimes.)
I did post one or two version on this website, though.
It's a bit of a mess, so I'd like it to be thought as nothing more than an experiment/alpha versions for now.
