Gameboy Pointer Calculator

Hello! I originally posted a pointer calculator around 3 years ago that allowed for the calculation of pointers for a couple different game systems. Sadly, despite its many downloads, nobody actually expressed an interest.

Now, I have a new version, and it only works for the Gameboy. (for now?)

Download
Version 1.0 - Final? - Clicky Clicky
NOTE: This requires the .NET Framework 3.5 to run!

Original Post (Pointer Calculator)
Spoiler:
Introduction
Hello all, I am here today with a new tool for you all. I present to you the Pointer Calculator, a nifty little multi-game tool that calculates pointers. Note: It requires .NET 4.0 to run, but I am working on a Java version.

Features
Calculate pointers for:
  • GB/C
  • GBA/NDS
  • NES
  • SNES Lo ROM
  • SNES Hi ROM

Screen

A view of the GB/C pointer calculating.

Download
Version 1 - Here - Slightly outdated version.

Redux!

Well, despite the lack of responses and such to this tool in the past, at the request of Pia Carrot (sort of), I have brought this back!

The new version is... the Gameboy Pointer Calculator!
Basically, just type in an offset and voila! instant pointer (or the opposite).

If you wanna download this, you will be able to find it on the first post.

Thanks a ton for this, man. Was looking all over for it, since the only other GBC pointer calculator is in german and it's old as hell.

I know very little about GB/C pointers still so this will help me a ton.

Uh, no. If you know the pointer, it can calculate the offset, or vice-versa.
No ROMs involved, simply numbers.

Oh, that's a shame, I mean, that's the tool I was hoping to see.
Anyway, again nice tool.

Thanks. Perhaps I'll look into making that kind of tool.
