Misc. Editor

What?
Misc. Editor is a small tool that anyone can use to fix/implement a few things. It only works with Pokemon FireRed v1.0 for now. So, it will change/fix:
  • Indoor Running Shoes
  • Evolution without the National Dex
  • Species text cut-off glitch

Note
Misc. Editor was made with C# .NET 4.0, so your computer needs .NET 4.0 on it to run it.

Screens
Spoiler:


Current Version
Misc. Editor is currently in version 1.1.

Credits
  • HackMew
  • Jambo51

Check the attachments, it's there.

Hmmm. Where's the credits to the people who figured out this stuff to begin with. HackMew and myself spent quite some time working out the ASM behind it you know!

That said, this is a useful little tool, and I have no problems with you including the stuff. All we ask for is a little credit

I'll just clarify, does this tool patch up the fix to the ROM or does it completely rewrite a new routine out of ASM? Do ROM Bases work once you install these stuff? :D

Oh, I included the credits in the program, but I think I'll add them to the post as well.

It just overwrites the original data, so a ROM base should work fine with it.

The text font is comic sans.

The comic sans font is quite a good font - for invitations of some sort. But it doesn't make your tool look very ... serious.
Apart from that, I don't really get the point in writing a program to implement those little things. If you already have the offset, it will take aproximately 15 (well, let's say per feature + opening the rom in the hex-editor) seconds to jump to the location, do a simple byte change and hit save. I'm not sure if the evolution thing is a simple byte change, too, but if it is, it'd be a waste of time (and space on the hard drive ) to download the tool, and implementing the features.
But this isn't the only thing that disapoints me of this tool: if you are too lazy or something to implement those features with a hex-editor, you don't really deserve to have them in your hack, IMO (well, e.g. map-editing or scripting, which have to be done very often and aren't that simple to do in hex, could be done with a tool, but only if you understand how it works with a hex-editor. That's my opinion about tools of this kind)

It may be just me, but this tool seems almost ... pointless ( ? )
IDK, maybe it's just me. :\

I understand what you both mean, and I know that this tool is pretty pointless, but I made it to practice programming... So, yeah it is pointless, but I wanted to share it anyways.

Well, alright. Plus, I chose the font because I wanted the tool to look informal.

I like your program here. It's something that can be useful for those that want these bugfixes. It is a really good little program for your first attempt and I applaud you for that.

I like it! It's too cool for programming fixes!
And yeah. I hate the Comic Sans font too. Glad you changed your font.

The thing I like about this tool is it's useful just for a normal playthrough of the original games (who DIDN'T want their Golbat to become a Crobat before the elite 4, and make the Team Rocket in Silph quest more bearable wioth running?).
