Ever started a hack on FireRed, LeafGreen or Emerald, you got the items completely, edited; but, than, oh crap, the icon's still a "?", well, I'm gonna try to explain how you can fully customize and add more items to the game without, hopefully replacing old items. You can still do all of this on Ruby and Sapphire, it's just all you'd need there is Item Manager and maybe FSF.

Programs needed:
Item Manager
FSF
Item Image Editor
unLZ.GBA
Advance-Mart/Visualboy Adavance (Maybe, probably just to see if it worked).

It didn't completely work, but you did get a new item out of it!

See, the Dream Mail, which I used to edit the Aura Stone in, is completely unaffected!

If this gets approved and helps people, awesome, I found something that doesn't seem to have a tutorial that some might be interested in.

Nice tut for newbie^^
While researching the potions,I found that the most of the grouped items are relied on their indexes.
So if you want the new item work,that may needs some ASM skills.

Wouldn't it be better to use this?

It's a little better and you would use one less tool...

I see.

Although if one of them works there is no reason why the other shouldn't :P

They are similar and in fact are based off the same source.

Hi,
This is a great tutorial, but i had a bit of a problem. I set my new item to be a key item and to have a new name, I copied the description from a new item, however I didnt add a sprite because i havnt designed one yet. It then displays the item name as ????? and has no description.

I dont know why it is displaying the ????? for the name and no description. Is this because once it sees that it has no sprite it goes to a default ????? item?

If its any help i am using index number 35.

also ... how did you write a custom description for your item? in your tutorial you copy the leaf stone however in the final result it has your own text. Is this done through a scripting program, compiled and then pointed to or is this a completely different process. Thank you for your help.

Cheers

where can you download the item tools? I can't seem to find them. Attaching the files would have been nice

I need that item manager to set some new prices for my hack. Do you have a downloadlink? i can't find it anywhere?
I found an earlyer version of thethethe's item editor but it's no good to set prices. Each time you finish the pokemon league i want to make a character appear that offers some rare items for 65000. But when i set the prices of some items to 65000 and press save, item editor turns the price into a negative value. You can't go higher then 32768!

[EDIT]
Did some thinking and figured out why you can't go above 32760 without going negative. it's because the max is 2^ 16(65536, determined by number of bytes used to store value). If you want to have positive and negative values you get a range -32768 to 32767. So 0-32767 is the positive range and 32768-65536 is the negative range.

Perhaps you need to change the type of the evolution for certain pokemon...

I tried that in YAPE,

this would be the best tutorial ever if you showed us how to get the stone to actually work! I already changed the evolution of the pokemon i wanted to test with yape, and everything works fine until I try to use the item, then it says "it wouldnt do anything" please help!!!

Same happened to me. When I use a Mega Stone, which I made up, on my Mewtwo, it says "it had no effect". Anyone help me?

The way to make this work fully would be to check out Karatekid's tutorial on Stone Creation and do the graphic work with this tutorial and the actual programming work based on his tutorial.
