About FF8's kernel.bin
« on: 2012-05-27 13:15:00 »
I'm talking about the kernel.bin file in the PC version. I dumped out the some text as below

Code: [Select]
//GAME NAME: FE8

//BLOCK #000 NAME: 1

//POINTER #0 @ $80 - STRING #0 @ $4E08

#W16($80)
//Attack<end>


//POINTER #1 @ $84 - STRING #1 @ $5188

#W16($84)
//Fire<end>


//POINTER #2 @ $88 - STRING #2 @ $57B0

#W16($88)
//Thunder Storm<end>


//POINTER #3 @ $8C - STRING #3 @ $59F0

#W16($8C)
//Blade Slice<end>


//POINTER #4 @ $90 - STRING #4 @ $619C

#W16($90)
//Revolver<end>


//POINTER #5 @ $94 - STRING #5 @ $62F8

#W16($94)

//POINTER #6 @ $98 - STRING #6 @ $6364

#W16($98)

//POINTER #7 @ $9C - STRING #7 @ $63A0

#W16($9C)

//POINTER #8 @ $A0 - STRING #8 @ $6768

#W16($A0)
//Tent<end>


//POINTER #9 @ $A4 - STRING #9 @ $7C28

#W16($A4)
//Zantetsuken<end>


//POINTER #10 @ $A8 - STRING #10 @ $7CDC

#W16($A8)
//HP-J<end>


//POINTER #11 @ $AC - STRING #11 @ $7E9C

#W16($AC)
//Magic<end>


//POINTER #12 @ $B0 - STRING #12 @ $8000

#W16($B0)
//HP+20<end>


//POINTER #13 @ $B4 - STRING #13 @ $81A8

#W16($B4)
//Mug<end>


//POINTER #14 @ $B8 - STRING #14 @ $84A8

#W16($B8)
//Alert<end>


//POINTER #15 @ $BC - STRING #15 @ $8540

#W16($BC)
//SumMag+10<end>


//POINTER #16 @ $C0 - STRING #16 @ $862C

#W16($C0)
//Haggle<end>


//POINTER #17 @ $C4 - STRING #17 @ $89C0

#W16($C4)
//No Mercy<end>


//POINTER #18 @ $C8 - STRING #18 @ $8A40

#W16($C8)
//Laser Eye<end>


//POINTER #19 @ $CC - STRING #19 @ $8C24

#W16($CC)
//Normal Shot<end>


//POINTER #20 @ $D0 - STRING #20 @ $8D0C

#W16($D0)
//Punch Rush<end>


//POINTER #21 @ $D4 - STRING #21 @ $8E04

#W16($D4)
//<$03>'<end>


//POINTER #22 @ $D8 - STRING #22 @ $8E38

#W16($D8)
//<$03>' Cannon<end>


//POINTER #23 @ $DC - STRING #23 @ $8E74

#W16($DC)
//Tastes okay...<end>


//POINTER #24 @ $E0 - STRING #24 @ $8F74

#W16($E0)
//Game over...<end>

That's all things I can dump out. But in the file, there's more text that I can not locate the pointers.
The only ones pointers that I can locate range from $80 to $E1, between 2 pointers is <$00><$00>.
Anyone here who know this clearly could tell me where  the pointers are?

Thank you for reading.

Colly
