This is a tutorial on how to edit the ending credits in Pokemon - Fire Red Version.

so we are all hackers here and this is something really simple that we probably all know how to do... maybe...

But I wanted to point something outm and what better way to do it than in a nice tutorial...

What you will need:
a Fire Red ROM (BPRE)
a hex editor

Like most hackers I gave my hack a new name... (because Fire Red was already taken) and as I tested my new game I got to the end and noticed right after beating the elite four
" POKEMON - FIRE RED VERSION
STAFF"
well those sneaky bastages...

I wanted to change this... so I tried it in advance-text... no luck it wont repoint this data... and if my new name were exactly the same size we might be ok... but my name is considerably longer...

how can I fix this?

well the offset (given by advance-text) is 41d195...

so lets open our rom in our favorite hex editor and jump to 41d195

we should see:

FF 00 00 CA E3 DF 1B E1 E3 DF 1B E1 E3 E2 00 C6
D9 D5 DA C1 E6 D9 D9 E2 00 D0 D9 E6 E7 DD E3 E2
FE CD E8 D5 DA DA FF FE FE BE DD E6 D9 D7 E8 E3
E6 FE FE FE FE


Now what we are looking at here is words... in hex...
I have attached a .txt to this post showing how to decode it (or write your own hex words)

but to make things simple I will decode it for you

00 00 00 CA E3 DF 1B E1 E3 E2 00 CO DD E6 D9 CC
3spaces P o k /e m o n F i r e R
D9 D8 00 D0 D9 E6 E7 DD E3 E2 FE CD E8 D5 DA DA
e r V e r s i o n /n S t a f f
FF 00 00 CA E3 DF 1B E1 E3 DF 1B E1 E3 E2 00 C6
/x2space P o k /e m o n L
D9 D5 DA C1 E6 D9 D9 E2 00 D0 D9 E6 E7 DD E3 E2
e a f G r e e n V e r s i o n
FE CD E8 D5 DA DA FF FE FE BE DD E6 D9 D7 E8 E3
/n S t a f f /x /n /n D i r e c t o
E6 FE FE FE FE
r /n /n /n /n


now wait just a minute...

y is Leaf Green Version in my ending credits...

well the answer is...

WHO CARES!!! the game knows to skip from the FF after the title to the FF before the director... so lets use that to our advantage...

the spaces before Pok/emon Fire Red are important... so make sure to keep 3 spaces... then... insert your new game title, dont worry about keeping it the same length as " Pokemon Fire Red Version" because in reality you have twice that (nearly)

so keep this format and you are good to go

(3 spaces) "New awesome name" /n Staff /x (whatever is left of leaf green) /x /n /n director

the /x /n /n Director should not move so you are limited on space a little...

mine looks like:

E6 D5 00 D0 DD E3 E0 D9 E8 00 D0 D9 E6 E7 DD E3
E2 FE CD E8 D5 DA DA FF 00 00 00 C6 D9 D5 DA C1
E6 D9 D9 E2 00 D0 D9 E6 E7 DD E3 E2 FE CD E8 D5
DA DA FF FE FE BE DD E6 D9 D7 E8 E2




Here I very nearly maxed the characters (and had 3 lines of text)


but the third line looks silly... too close to the bottom...
so I removed it (pretty sure we know the credits show the staff)
