Pointer Calculators?

Are there any pointer calculators available out there for GBC? I'm actually starting to get the hang of them now, but I don't have much patience for math, so a calculator could really help.


I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones.

Re: Pointer Calculators?

You can use any scientific calculator (including Windows's one). These are the formulas:

IF address > $3FFF:
    POINTER (2 bytes) = (Address MOD $4000) + $4000
    BANK ID (1 byte)  = Address \ $4000

ELSE:
    POINTER (2 bytes) = Address
    BANK ID (1 byte)  = 0 (zero)

It's not that complicated, is it?

...you know that moment when the lightbulb goes off in your head and you think "Wow, I'm and IDIOT"? That just happened. Thanks so much. (:
