I'm currently writing the structure of the TAD files. I will let you know.

Yes, that's what I'm explaining in my previous post.
- First, find matches between (vanilla & extension) <=> (demos #2 & #3) to get their x86 equivalent on PC.
- Then, code the missing ones directly on x86.

I understand. The file contains several offset tables. Without knowing them, you can't easily bound the code.

I'm working on it this WE.
