    • Keep around a boolean true/false for each value in memory, so you don’t get in an infinite loop.
    • Here’s an example of properly labeling things: when you encounter loads to a and hl, put them in a queue before printing them out. If they’re followed by a call to $35CD, replace the constants with the appropriate labels and BANK() macros, then flush the queue.
    These are some enlightening advices, thank you. I'll try to follow them when I'll get around starting that project.
    I'm not sure I understood right the thing about putting [address x 2], though. Could you clarify it a bit?
