DKC ROM Addresses

Postby Shy Guys Stash » February 6th, 2013, 1:36 pm

I'm starting a project that will include making a list of all the ROM addresses of DKC.

While I do urge the member's to feel free to pitch in with finding and posting DKC rom/ram addresses I request that you only post DKC rom/ram addresses here to keep it nice and organize.

thank you

This is all I know so far...

$3C03C8 - $3C35C9: English script for the game
$3C35CA - $3C5839: German script for the game
$38A246 - $38A50D: German level names
$38A50D - $38A7E7: English level names
$1EFE0 - $1F3E7: End game credits
$2DE076 - $2DFC94: Fragment of the English script of the game, probably from a beta version. Some differences include:

The name of "Slippa" being "Hister"
Three text blocks are in different orders
The line "the colors are all too rich" is "the colors are all to rich" (spelling mistake)
The level "Jungle Hijinxs" is referred to as "Jungle Japes"

$3D72D0 - $3D7DB4: Another fragment of the English script of the game, similar to above, but about half the size.

Copy the following into a text file to use as input for Cartographer.

For the record, there is a screenshot of "Jungle Japes" in the Player's Guide.

I do see the Jungle Japes image in the DKC Strategy Guide:

Very interesting — I'll try to look for some more beta images in the strategy guide for DKC's player guide.
