CHR File Format

CHR File Format

Is the .chr file format just a ppu pattern table in memory set up as a file? Or is it something more than that?

If it's 4KiB, yes, that's what it is.

The tools I've written work with any multiple of 16 tiles (256B); sometimes you might wish to have multiple chunks of CHR and let the linker handle them.
