Well, to be honest... I haven't done it for ages. I've been busy studying for my final exams, and for my bad luck, i studied 3 months and it got me 30% out of 100%... And it was my life exam... I'm so pissed about it. I can't believe i failed this hard...
Well, anyways, i suppose you want the works i've done in the past. I'll send some of the things by PM sooner or later, because i have no use of keeping them here in my laptop getting rust... But for that, i'm going to need your email to share my docs with you. But please, don't make them public, they are my works, and are specifically for you.
For now, i'll send the sepia/grayscale hack, but the other things, asm stuff, it's a bit more complicated to send because of the procedures needed to do the things work. I just beg you to wait 1 more month, because it's my final chance of success.

Hey man. How's your ASM been going?
March 15th, 2012 2:28 PMSpeedster
Yeah long time no see. I'm glad you haven't forgotten the hack. Hopefully I'll be ready for you when you come back. I'll try to make a list of ASM that needs to be done.

Hey dude, long time no see! :D
I'm passing just to say that i haven't forgot our hack! In fact, my 1 week vacations start on 23 march! From there, i'll be more frequently on MSN, so we can discuss progress in the hack.
By the way, you can VM/PM me things you would like me to do!! Even though i don't have much time for hacking, i usually get a spare hour or something like that a day.

Hey sonic. I was talking to this guy and you may or may not know him but he know's you. He usually goes by Zeno. He is on WAH also. I had asked him about alpha blending and he became curious because he had only used it once in a simple spot. So he tried it out got it working (kinda) as a text box. He wanted me to ask you if you could PM me the FireRed and Ruby message/textbox ASM routine so he can edit it. Thanks.

Well your system seems similar to ours but not exactly the same.
Yeah that's what we were aiming for so props to you! Also i you don't mind we were checking if it would be possible to do that but store the portrait and pallet in Free Space around 0x80000 and then access it from there.

YEAH, thats it, 'Classes'!! Thanks man, that was exactly what i was looking for xD. Also, i'm gonna have an exam on "English" language, which is my best chance of taking a good grade, because i deal with this language every day on programming, talking with you and other friends, etc.
Yeah, basically, here in portugal, the eductional system works like this:
.3 Trimesters (9 school months)
.2 exams at each class each trimester (ocasionally 3, if the general grades of all the students aren't good; basically a "recover" exam)
.A final grade each trimester
.At the end of the third trimester, at each class, all the final grades are 'mean'ed a final final grade is obtained at each class. Boring...
Well, i'm not a really good math student, but math is just doing countless exercises, to train our strategies of solving a problem. So i would say that my problem is laziness
About the portrait system, i think it must be divided in two things: The one that loads the background box, and the other that actually loads the pokemon (it also loads its cry, but while researching this subject 2 years ago, i found out how to remove it.

Really? That's awesome! I was talking to some other ASMers and they said that you would need to make your own routine for a FireRed portrait system.
We only have semesters here. Not trimesters. The word I would probably say is just "classes." We have exams at the end of the 1st and 2nd Semester.
Yeah that ain't to good. I hope you do do better next time. I'd expect someone like you to be a wiz at math. xD
February 23rd, 2012 2:20 PMsonic1
Yup, i'm doing this now, because i've got this day free, and this things about the stack are related to the portrait display system you wanted me to do.
And yeah, i don't know if where you are you do 2 exams by each 3 months (period, as we call here, trimester) of each (subject?Discipline? I'm missing the word for the different topics we learn in schools, like math, chemestry, biology, philosophy, etc... ). I've finished all my first (topics, subject, disciplines, whatever) exams, but in a few time its going to come at me the 2nd wave of exams >.<
Well, in my first exam of math i had something like 11 in 20, or 55% in 100%, which, obviously, isn't a good grade. But i'm sure i'll get a good grade in the next one, as i'm more motivated now to study. But yeah, math's a little complicated xD

Wow, that's a lot to know. I can barely remember what I learned about c#. Your doing all this work now so does that mean you finished your exams? How did math go?
February 23rd, 2012 10:42 AMsonic1
Yup, those are necessary things when it comes to ASM. Thanks xD.
But you, who are learning C#, if it isn't visual C#, you'll soon learn the stack (or not)... But i must learn this because many routines use the "stack" (i'm almost sure you don't know what it is) as a way of passing parameters. E.g: There's a routine that creates a pokemon in our party. But that's it? A random one? No, we must specify what poke is, and what level, item, etc... See? Those are called 'arguments', values that must be passed to a function so it uses them to do what we WANT.
As you may have realized by now, the stack is a 'pile' of values, which some are arguments, others offsets, and others just data.
But yay, you're gonna get through that if you're seriously about learning C# (which i know you are, and your gonna teach me later )
February 23rd, 2012 9:50 AMSpeedster
Wow. Seems like you are learning a lot based on looking below.
February 15th, 2012 2:06 PMSpeedster
That's what I thought!
Not sure where I posted it on PC.
And yes I'd love to teach you.
February 15th, 2012 1:56 PMsonic1
Lol, GFX = Graphics
I saw it somewhere that you where learning C#, although i dont really remember it xD
Once he teaches you, you could teach me
February 15th, 2012 1:37 PMSpeedster
Oh that looks cool. It could be very, very useful. I'm not sure what GFX is though.
I am learning C# although how did you know? xD It is fun though. Link12552 is teaching me.
