Hiya. I was wondering if you knew (or remembered) the offsets (and such) in the Apple ][ code for WoD to well, cheat.I got very far into WoD when I was 16 years old (I’m 33 now!).Somehow, my game disks (one of them?) became corrupted, and I couldn’t finish the game. I recently downloaded an Apple ][ emulator and found roms to your game!(Is this ok?) Anyway, I’d like to cheat myself back to where I was, or at least remove the stamina reduction over time functionality and such. The “Applewin” program seems to have a decent debugger.. though I’m racking my brain to remember 6502 assembly language. =)I know it’s been a LONG time, but if you remember anything, I’d appreciate it.Thanks for writing such a great game. Playing it again brings back some great memories.-V-
Geez… talk about a backlog of old email…. sorry for the (yikes!) year long delay!Thanks for writing and thanks for your interest in WoD.
Here are some of the key offsets from the character file. (No, I most definitely am not recalling this from memory!!) I believe all the values were in BCD (binary coded decimal) — in other words, 255 would be represented in hex as “0255” not “00FF”. hit points: bytes 26 & 27, stamina: 28 && 29, gold: 30 & 31
Hehe, I was wondering why you never responded. ;)
Thanks for the answer!
ps. I have some great memories of some of the first games I’ve ever really loved when I was just getting into computers in my teens. Thanks for one of them.
