    Yesterday I've downloaded @Selbi 's Sonic 1 - Text Code Generator for making custom title cards. I've used this disassembly: https://github.com/sonicretro/s1disasm
    When I've copied and pasted the new title card generated by the program, putted it into the disassembly and the builded it, it gave me an error. :(

    Any help?

    Showing the error would help.

    Sorry but now, I can't show you the error, because I've resetted the title card, anyway I will try with the Sonic 1 Hivebrain's disassembly

    Alright, imma just spit out a couple theories as to how ya could've gotten an error with this tool.

    1. Did the title card config thingy (when you generate a new title card) get implemented properly?
    2. Did you use letters unsupported by the tool?
    3. Was the new string properly implemented in the right area of the disassembly?
    4. Could this issue be only prevalent in GitHub's disassembly despite everything set up correctly?

    in the studio i guess
    The problem might be that you copied the
    byteXXXX in the header? I know the Github disassembly uses a different naming system for most of the files/names in there. If you copy everything but the first part like i mentioned, it should work correctly.

    Also, the errors are in the errors.txt file, in case you didn’t know.

    This would be the exact issue. MAKE SURE labels are consistent!
