It's all there, you just need to know your terminology and read very carefully. It's all in the guide that comes with it. For overworld editing, I believe you have to set one of the unknown bytes for the overworld to the correct overworld table number, and pallets are set up with your new table (I think).

As I understand, this cuts off compatibility with the Start Map editor, so where would I go in the Hex Editor to change the start map?

I have a question, and this might sound stupid cause i'm a little new but how do you add more sprites to advanced trainer? I am pretty sure you can do that using this hack engine but i'm not sure how

Also I'm currently looking for a spriter for my ROM. Someone who can make OWs and possibly trainer sprites (I might make those myself). Message me if you would like to be a part of Pokemon Battle Brown!
NOTE: You wouldn't be designing your own sprites, I would be telling you what I needed, and you would make it for me ... as appealing as that sounds. I know it doesn't sound like a fun task, but if you want to be a part of this ROM, then that's what will happen. Also I would like to see some stuff you have made before I accept your offer.

hi ive been hacking and setting up my game without the engine for a few weeks and the only reason is because im having trouble loading other programs like smca and any other editorsr besides advance map. they all come up with "runtime error 380" or something like it.
so my question is am i missing something after putting the engine patch on?
ive read the readme as in skimmed mostly for info but seems to be info for using it after its applied right. looking forward for a reply thankyou.

This is interesting. I think I might try it out sometime. Thanks for the Patch, friend!

Please forgive me for any work you were hoping I could do for you, but I don't even have the files for the original games anymore. So for now, I have to resign from work until my computer gets cleaned. I will try to return to hacking as soon as I can, but it may not be for a while.

UPDATE: My computer and devices are cleaned, but atm, I do NOT have access to my hack tools. I can not hack for anyone including myself. My apologies to anyone this inconveniences.

That's a completely different thing that what this patch does. This patch expands the OVERWORLD table. If you wanted to add more trainer sprites, you'd have to repoint and expand the trainer sprite table as well as the trainer sprite animation table.

So just to confirm, the .ips and tool perform the same job right? Because I get an unhanded exception when running the tool though parallels.

also, why so dead thread? o_0

The .IPS applies everything in the hack, the tool lets you pick and choose.

Same problem here. Not only with the OW hacks though. For example:
Quote:
Choose the variable for the wild pokemon level switch
. Tried different variables between 4000 and 4100.
I'll just use the ips file instead, if its true that the ips applies every engine hack provided.

This is FR exclusive, and JPAN is gone. So here, apply the patch, then use the tool to customize. Choose FREE variables, probably might want to use Jambo's flag/variable extensions. Then you're not done. The first town (pallet town) doesn't warp properly, so fix it with a-map 1.92. then you're good.

So, I'm having trouble with a few commands and hoping some could help me out.
The commands are :
Special 0x58 – Wild Pokémon Data Switch
Special 0x16 – Change Pokémon species
Special 0x52 – Temporary Status inducer
so if someone could just walk me though the making of thes script that would be very help full

Special 0x2f - key dumper.
If anyone knows how JPAN's example work in his guide, please explain.
Adding things up in the binary calculator is what I don't understand how to do.

I'm having problems applying the hack using the hacktool.

When I try to apply certain hacks, such as the OW hacks or whiteout hacks, I have a problem where it won't progress.
It'll ask for a variable for something(EX: variable for dynamic OWs for the OW hack, a variable for the pokemon level switch hack, or a variable for the map etc for the whiteout hack) and no matter what I input and no matter how many times I input it, the exact same box will pop up and ask for the exact same thing, and it will not stop.

Am I missing something, or am I doing something wrong? If so, what is it?
Thanks in advance for any help.

It took me a bit to figure this out, but JPAN set restrictions on what vars you can use. However, poor coding on his part, he didn't share those restrictions, at least that I could see. The vars that I found to work tended to be between 4050 and 40FF, which are the safer ones anyway. You can always apply the hack and then use a little hex editing to change the var to a different one later.

Ah, thanks. Now I can finally get that hack applied.

Okay, I'm no expert on hacking, but I have a suggestion. Try using something like XSE to open the script for a move tutor currently in the game. Look at the data and try to figure out how it works, it shouldn't be too difficult(I think). Then copy the script and modify it to fit your specifications.


Note: I don't know for sure how easy/hard this might be or if it will be completely successful. Just a thought. If anybody has some actual information, feel free to be more helpful than me.

You need to goto HEX, to do that.

Anyway, here's an example of the script

#org @Start
lock
faceplayer
checkflag 0x200
compare LASTRESULT 0x1
if 0x1 goto @AlreadyLearnt
msgbox @WantToLearn
boxset 0x5
compare LASTRESULT 0x0
if 0x1 goto @DontWant
setvar 0x8005 0x1 (Setvar 0x8005 0x1 is reserved for Mega Punch I think, you'll need to goto into HEX to change it).
special 0x18D
setflag 0x200
release
end

Here's a guide
