    Default Geiger mystery

    So I decided to try to make a WTW code for Mystic Ark (SNES). I started by turning out a couple of coordinate codes, 7E09A1** and 7E09A4** in ZSNES and then I tried to use Geiger's to break them. I came up with this, C4339601, for vertical passage through objects, and for horizontal passage.... nothing. Just nothing, Geiger wouldn't register a thing.

    I tried the same thing in Brain Lord and got the same results. C08A5601 for vertical passage and nothing else. Is it just Enix games? What an I doing wrong here?

    Make sure you have his newer versions, here is his site with the latest debugger http://geigercount.net/crypt/ althou I could never get it running it always had some error on startup so I used the latest that worked and I tested that game with the RAM addresses and always had breaks. I included it in this post.

    I get the same error message with the latest version. I don't know how to differentiate between RAM addresses and any other addresses in Geiger's, pathetic I know, but It's OK because I found code I was looking for by checking read instead of write. ...Read is the RAM address isn't it?

    umm no, you set a break with those RAM addresses you provided the PAR codes if you will,7E09A1 and 7E09A4 . You will set it to break on write or read depending on what your looking to do,if its read anything that is written to that address will show up as a break. There can be many breaks on 1 addresses especially if you set it to read,after you have a break I hit the Disassemble button and change the initial address range to something like -10hex from the starting address to see the instructions that are being called out before my break. Hope this helps.

    If you're getting startup errors with the debugger you may need the latest C++ runtime files, there's a discussion thread on it somewhere over at RHDN forums.
