Is there a reason nobody is making a save state of things before the ending? If so, what is that reason?

Here's a sav state after the battle.

By the way. It looks like it uses split screen mode, but doesn't use split screen scrolling. The split screen is on the left. It's using normal scrolling on the right.

Your updated SRAM file did the trick, and I was able to finish the game in Nintendulator.

The ending looks roughly like this:
Image
The names on the right scroll upwards, the mountain stays in place (since it's made of sprites), and the stars on the left animate upwards but otherwise stay in place if emulating in "CL mode" (which is my default); if I recompile my mapper DLL to run in SL mode, the stars do not animate at all.

Given that the BKAC cartridge was apparently wired in CL mode (at least in the photo on NesCartDB), I suspect the animating stars are "intentional", and the mountain was made of sprites to prevent its tiles from also animating in the same way.

Took me far to long to get this to work (mostly because I'm an idiot), but finally managed to get to the end credits and I get the same behavior as Quietust (for both CL & SL modes - which I was not even aware was a thing). At least, assuming the stars really are meant to scroll up in such an unnatural way...

Edit: And thanks for the save file! I actually had tried to figure out cheat codes and the like to try and get to the ending a long time ago (after reading this topic), but I had given up relatively quickly.
