FF6 Silence GraphicDescription

Don’t think this is gonna be a 100% Gold Remake, it’ll have its differences. Extra battles (some’ll be optionals, tough but rewarding), Hoenn Pokemon (in every area, and hard to find) New areas, Remapped some dungeons (so your old guides wont work) , Extra recurring characters (some’ll hate you, some’ll help you)

Note that the hack is incomplete but feel free to enjoy the hack as-is.

==================================================
 a. Graphics Data
==================================================

The Silence spell graphic is comprised of a 6x6 matrix of 8x8 tiles (SNES 3BPP).

The following tiles are used multiple times in the FF3us Mute graphic, mirrored
as necessary:

 HiROM    Tile #
 -------  ------
 D3/01F8  0x0015
 D3/0540  0x0038
 D3/06A8  0x0047


In FF6j, the corners of the Silence graphic use this tile (also found in the
FF3us data):

 HiROM    Tile #
 -------  ------
 D3/04E0  0x0034


Most tiles from the FF6j version have a corresponding localized tile in FF3us.
FF3us Mute graphic tiles have been replaced with their FF6j counterparts as
follows:

 Source              Destination
 FF6j             |  FF3us (Modified)

 D3/0B58  0x0079  |  D3/0B10  0x0076


The FF3us version of the graphic uses 4 fewer unique tiles than the FF6j
version. The other tiles in this data segment are shifted up accordingly,
leaving 4 tiles' worth of contiguous free space at the end.

The 4 FF6j tiles without FF3us counterparts have been copied into the free space
as follows:

 Source           |  Destination
 FF6j             |  FF3us (Modified)
 HiROM    Tile #  |  HiROM    Tile #
 -------  ------  |  -------  ------
 D3/0588  0x003B  |  D4/C998  0x1311
 D3/0A38  0x006D  |  D4/C9B0  0x1312
 D3/0B28  0x0077  |  D4/C9C8  0x1313
 D3/0B70  0x007A  |  D4/C9E0  0x1314

 b. Tile Map

 > Tile map for Silence graphic starts at D2/0080.
 > Flag 0x8000 mirrors tile vertically.
 > Flag 0x4000 mirrors tile horizontally.
