Password analyzer/creator

David, in April 2007 you created a SNES password analyzer/creator, which was available at your Freeweb.hu website.
I think it's no longer available anywhere. Maybe you can attach it to a post in this thread. Thanks.

I attached it to this post.

The ZIP contains two files:
snes_pwd_gen.htm is the generator/decoder itself.
snes_pwd.htm is a description of how the SNES passwords work.

Here is a detailed disassembly of the password-related code.
It has some new info about the xor checksum bits (plus that always-zero bit) [they're calculated using a CRC] and the unused "x" bit [it seems it was meant for the checkpoint flag].
