I suck horribly at NES debugging/cracking. I need help retrieving and translating/understanding the Password Generation Algorithm and Password Decryption Algorithm (probably just the reverse of the PGA) for Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse on the NES. I don't plan on using the same algorithm in my game, but I need to know how Konami did it so I can have something to work off of.

Many thanks for anyone that can help me with this.
