Searching for a specific tutorial but can't seem to find it? Well, you've come to the right thread!
If you need a tutorial created for a specific area of hacking, whether it be something about graphics, music, ASM, or how to use an external program, ask for it here. Just remember these few things, and you should be okay:
Ask for tutorials that will benefit the community, not just yourself
Asking for a tutorial for, say, how to draw Link from the Zelda series, is not a proper request. Ask for something that'll help you and others.
Try being specific when asking for a tutorial
What would you like the person to cover? Is there any extra information you want to know for when they write the tutorial? Give the person who takes up your request a good description so they know what to write.Hopefully, this will motivate users to create tutorials that are of high demand. Be mature when asking for something, and all should go well.
I Need a tutorial for properly inserting graphics Via Pic2SNES in lunar magic using the M16-7k "Ctrl + Shift + Alt + F1 + N + O + Insert" cheat so that I stop getting animated trash and/or fully corrupting other active map16 fg pages.
Um...I hope you're joking about the carol-style bosses...
I agree with you about the dynamic sprite tutorial, though. Maybe if I bug Roy at the right time, he'll teach me, and then I can make a dynamic sprite before Iceguy or Maxx beats me to it. As far as the cluster sprite one goes...well, um...
Applying xkas patches is very simple, simply copy cmd.exe from the system32 folder to a folder with your ROM, patch and xkas. Then type in command:
xkas patch.asm rom.smc
With the obvious substitutions.
Since most xkas patches require free space for new code, you'll need to change a 'freespace' variable of some sort in the patch to free space in your ROM. This is a SNES / LoROM address that will require lunar address to convert between the address you see in the hex editor and the address you put in the patch.
To find the freespace, get the SMW Free Space Logger by smkdan from the Tools section. Of course, also have Lunar Address with you.
Now do as following:
1. Drag-drop your ROM over the SMW Free Space Logger.
2. A file is generated. Open it, and select a PC address you see fit. (It should have a sufficient amount of bytes.)
3. Convert that PC address to a SNES address in Lunar Address - input the PC address in the 'PC Address' tab, the corresponding SNES address will show up on the other side. Make sure you have SNES LoROM $00:8000-$6F:FFFF (the top-most option) checked.
4. Now replace the freespace address (org $1ACE00, org $xxxxxx, or !FreeSpace = $xxxxxx, whatever) with the SNES address that outputs.
You should be done right now.
Further xkas question topics that are answered by this thread will result in a ban.
