Around two years ago, I started recording a long series of videos for teaching how to rom hack, mainly centered on hacking Gen II pokemon games.
Not too long ago, I started re-doing the whole thing from scratch and by now, I have managed recording 3 over 50-minute long parts of this new video series.
What is this about ?
I'm doing a video set for teaching people how to do rom hacking. Basically; what hex editing is, what is a rom image, what are pointers, how to transfer data from place to another, how does ram work, what kind of space limitations you've got to work with, how to program (
or in this case, create real scripts on your own
), how does assembly work and all that.
All of this will truly come in handy - no matter what game you're working with.
The series is done by using pokemon silver (u) rom for experimenting, but that's only because I happen to familiar with it and how it works. If you are modifying Pokemon FireRed like most of the community is, you have come to the right place! I wouldn't even be posting this tutorial here if I didn't knew I could help you out. Most of the community don't work with GB/C games and that's okay. This should help out everyone improve their knowledge in terms of rom hacking.
Although several parts of these tutorials have to do about GB/C hacking, that same knowledge can be used to hack GBA games too. I personally have never done any serious hacking with GBA games, just ones for GameBoy. Yet however, I happen to be the creator of that simple edit of DBZ Buu's Fury in Sideshow Showcase section.
So go on, spend a little bit of time by taking a look at the beginning of the first video in this video set! The stuff won't be too confusing while being explained properly, that I can guarantee.
