I'll add the new version later.



Download
Version 1.1: Here
* NOTE: .Net 4.5 is required for version 1.1 to work! *
Version 2.1: Here
* NOTE: .Net 4.0 is required for version 2.1 to work! *
Version 3.0: Here

It gave me a 404 error after I clicked the link?

But the tool seems cool and useful, so I'll grab it when the download is fixed.

I hate to complain again, but I downloaded the file but all that comes out of the .rar file no matter what I do is roms.dat? Dunno what's wrong there.

One quick question, I added fairy type on my hack, does/can your tool edit the strength and weaknesses of fairy type?

Maybe but first copy your ROM then paste the second ROM to somewhere safe that is not in the same place of the original ROM you used... Then test it if it works..... Hope this kinda' helps.

Got a little nitpick. It should be "Affected by Foresight" instead of effected.

Also, I'd like to ask how your tool deals with the foresight table? And does the tool ask before repointing or anything?

Thanks for the grammar fix.

What it does is save any types that are affected by foresight into its special table after saving all the types that fit in the normal table. And no, it does not ask to repoint. It just does it automatically.

Does this tool actually add and remove types? Or would you still have to replace other types to do that?

No, it sticks with the original 18 types found in the games. You would need to replace others for it to work within my tool right now.

After I edited a FR game I wanted to get rid of something I made. I went back and then when I pressed Save it said "Unhandled Exception has occurred in your application" and it said the index was outside the bounds of the array. I decided to close it and start again, but then the application didn't want to start my FireRed ROM. Do you know what the problem is?

I got rid of Normal's Foresight thing because I was making an inverse hack. I forgot Fighting, so then I changed Fighting and saved - that's how it happened first.

Ah, thanks for the info. I fixed the issue, and I put up a fresh download in the first post. :D

Hm. I tried 1.1 and made a FAIRY type replacing ??? for fun. After I made a bunch of new matchups, it gave me an error and didn't let me edit anything else - I could remove stuff, but not edit. I'll get rid of Fairy as I don't want to cause any troubles.

Well I'm not really sure what you messed up there...
I can say that I have used to tool to correctly insert repace ??? in Emerald, so I don't know why it could have locked up.

Maybe it was too much matchups and it could not repoint it to a good place?

I'm sort of having the same problem; whenever I try to add new matchups to the ??? type, it just keeps on adding "Normal 0%" instead of the matchups I intended and the program eventually crashes.

There's no more free space on the type effectiveness table, hex editing is always better btw

I think you just misunderstand how to work the program.

I guess this goes for all that are confused, but here is how you work the program:


Hope that helps~

I don't know how I missed this useful little tool until now.

Anyway, I have a random suggestion. Have you considered expanding slightly so that it also edits the contest types? They're technically working types that can be given strengths and weaknesses iirc. I personally like contests and always leave them in on RSE hacks, but I know that a lot of the hackers here don't give a flip about them. They might appreciate having 5 more type slots to work with. It's just an arbitrary add, but I thought it might be worth mentioning.
