    Sometimes I wish your games were legitly available on a physical cartridge so I could play them in my machine. I enjoy the old games a lot better on a physical console and get bored easily in VBA, so if I can sustain boredom so well with your hacks on VBA, imagine how fun they'd be IRL, huh?

    Hello again Coolboyman,

    I've made alot of progress with rom hacking since I last spoke to you, but I still have plenty of questions, if you are willing to take the time to read this. For the purpose of the hack im making of Pokemon Red, I want to replace every front and back sprite with sprites from a mix of Gold/Silver/Crystal spites. From what I've learned since I last talked to you, the compression in GSC is different than RBY. So my question is: What is the best way you suggest to simply replace every red sprite (front and back) with GSC sprites?

    1) Should the GSC sprites be located in the GSC rom and then decompressed from the GSC type of compression and then recompressed with the RBY type of compression and then be inserted in the red rom so that the RBY decompression routine can accurately read the image?
    2) Or should the RBY decompression routine be modified so that it decompresses the same way as GSC so that all sprites can be inserted as they are compressed in the GSC roms?
    3) Or do you think the best way is to remove/bypass the decompression routine and insert all GSC spites in blank space (in a rom with double the size for plenty of room) as uncompressed images?

    I'm not sure which of these solutions is most logical and perhaps you have an even better idea. I would like your opinion on what to do and I would appreciate all the advice you are willing to provide on whatever you think is best, because whatever you suggest, I'm sure I wouln't know how to do it entirely on my own, or where to learn. It's so hard to find new sources of information because 1st generation hackers are hard to come by now. I'm so glad you're still around and I hope you can help me with my hack and help me learn as much as I can. I have one year left in high school and then I'm off to college for computer science. Learning all I can about programing is my passion, and I hope you would like to help me gain all the knowledge I can.

    By knowing GB/C Assembly, you wield the power to scratch-code entire games, in a sense, right? Although it's a lot more intuitive and a lot less time-consuming to use bases of other games, not just for the initial coding but for story plots and routines in general - Kind of comparable to creating basic visual forms applications to coding the foundation of the presumed operating system .
    Would you by any chance know other Windows runtime programming languages, including formats other than .NET, perhaps C#, the old Pascal, or maybe C/C++? I'm just sort of curious of the apparent all-time champion of ROM hacking history, to say the most ;.
