Hi all.  I wanted to share this spreadsheet I've had compiled for a bit in case no one's got something already out there (I couldn't find anything).  There are two tabs, one with offsets on a headered ROM and a tab for a ROM without a header.  I've got both Decimal and Hex offsets here as well just in case.  Thought this might help anyone wanting a quick way to see what free space is in a normal unmodified ROM.  Feel free to post this elsewhere but please give credit.  ::)

NOTE: If there is an error please let me know and I'll correct it.

Nice work!

Technically I think all entries are free space but a somewhat good amount are right after end of some data like NPC data, event triggers or chest data as an example. If someone put something there blindly assuming it would never be touched, an utility like FF6LE could erase the data by adding chests as an example. So as a safety measure, always check in the ROM map what precede the free space ;)

This is a good point.  I used the FF6offsets.txt for the list of unused space to compile this so it does indeed include empty space at the end of some data blocks.   Shine

For the record, the old thread containing the list was moved on the wiki and deleted from the forum: https://www.ff6hacking.com/wiki/doku.php...us:doc:asm

I'll update credits at bottom of the page soon.

Cool beans.  Let me know if I need to add that warning with my spreadsheet about some of that empty space being in a data block being used by something else.
