It's more tedious than difficult, but with current circumstances being what they are I have more free time than usual. If you want to have the disassembled routines in a convenient off-line form, this would be it. If you have additional information not found in these files or one the wiki, please share or update the wiki.
- Rip the disassembled routines from the files I haven't done yet from the wiki into the appropriate text files.
- Add the missing routines into these text files.
- Add data tables to the text files.
- Make a duplicate set of files named with the *.asm extension instead of the *.txt extension, for assembling.
- Replace all the routine calls in *.asm with labels.
- Replace operands with labels where appropriate in *.asm; will require a bit of thought or maybe pseudo-opcodes.
- Put data tables in the *.asm files in a form which my assembler will recognize, ideally using labels so they can be resized and altered at will.
- Put compressed text tables, uncompressed text tables where they exist, and metadata/pointers for media assets into the files or devise some way to automate their creation given a set of inputs.
- Do whatever else I currently don't know to get the *.asm files to assemble.
- Apply all the essential and definitive bug-fixes, optimizations, and extensions to the *.asm files.
- Improve comments in both *.txt and *asm files.
- Discuss, plan, and implement new optimizations and extensions.
- Port the codebase and assets to a platform that allows more resources for improving and expanding the codebase, data, and assets, such as the PS2 or PSP. Please note that the PSP version is hardly a real port.
It wouldn't be a bad idea to upload these files to a source host that allows incremental revision such as Github. I make no claims of copyright to any of these files.
I use the assembler ARMIPS.
This thread may be useful if it isn't already incorporated in the wiki.
As of the last edit of this post I have grabbed all the wiki entries on equip.out and require.out; they are in the zip file below. I'm going with the smallest files first. They are missing quite a few disassembled routines which weren't in or disappeared from the wiki, and the comments are sparse compared to SCUS and the battle.out file.
Let me know if you have any issues with these files.
