Wait, so is GetPokemonData some kind of function that accesses the information in r0 given a value for r1? If so I would do something like:
branch my routine
ldr r0, .Pokemon_data (just the pointer, not the actual data)
mov r1, #0x3A
ldr r3, .GetPokemonData
and it would return the Pokemon pointed by r0's Current HP and place it in r2 (in this case?).
I think I'm misinterpreting, unless there really is a function as awesome as that.
SetPokemonData obviously works in the same nature as GetPokemonData, I'm just waiting to get corrected here :P
I get everything else pretty much, though the goal of adding and subtracting 4 bytes sorta escapes me (is that just to clear?).
I've only been doing reading things the long way, so I've never actually used these built-in functions (assuming that's what they are).
February 8th, 2013 08:18 PMFBI agentDo you have some other means of contact? I can't send longer VMs over PC because it times me out.
February 8th, 2013 06:56 PMDarthatronOkay, well, 06D5E8 in the ROM is some ASM that is in my notes as activating every step. This calls the Repel checks and such as well. I suggest you branch from here.
Try just making it heal once every step for now.
0803FBE8 is GetPokemonData. R0 needs to contain a pointer to the Pokemon. R1 is either 0x39 for getting the Pokemon's Current HP; 0x3A for getting it's Max HP; 0x37 for it's Status Ailment.
0804037C is SetPokemonData. R0 contains the pointer to the Pokemon. R1 contains the same values as above. R2 contains a pointer to free RAM.
When I say free RAM, I mean it's best to use the Stack for that. So just subtract 4 from the Stack at the start of the function and add 4 to it after everything.
SUB SP, SP, 4
ADD SP, SP, 4
February 8th, 2013 06:19 PMFBI agentYeah, FireRed. Sorry for the late reply, I ran off to go get something to eat :P
February 8th, 2013 05:53 PMDarthatronI figured it was comedic. You can call me whatever you want.
You're hacking FireRed, right?
February 8th, 2013 05:48 PMFBI agentI'm not really looking to be formal, it's more comedic when I title people (not to say that it's comical to consider you a general) :P
February 8th, 2013 05:46 PMFBI agentSure, if you can show me how I record the number of steps taken? I assume I can find clues in the same code that repel/safari zone uses. Since you did the repel port recently maybe you can tell me where it starts :P
P.S I'm trying to not use Jpan's engine if I can.
February 8th, 2013 05:40 PMDarthatronAlso don't worry about being so formal with me.
February 8th, 2013 05:39 PMDarthatronThat sounds interesting! Is there any way I can help you? Offsets or something? Or would you prefer to just work on it alone for now?
