Hex editing is as easy as typing numbers.. :D
And JPAN's hacked engine is as easy as applying the patch then using the tool to customize.

gogo, the tool is for installing his engine on roms that have already been hacked and that you don't want to lose. It is either the patch or the tool. Using both can get weird.

To patch the hacked engine onto FireRed, download a patching tool like LunarIPS or SmartIPS, then use them to apply the patch to the rom. (the method of applying the patch using a program like that might vary, I'm not sure really.)
Or download JPAN's hack applier tool and use it to apply all the hacks (or whatever ones you want to apply) onto a rom.
I hope that helps.

You don't want to. The patch is beyond repair, but it's features are being broken up and put into different projects.

Good tutorial but how to you install the save_block_recycle hack to fire red?
I did hex work before and programming but i don't get it.
Im using Hex Workshop as a hex editor.
EDIT:
Ok i read the above posts but i cant find JPAN's hack applier tool and Lunar and smart IPS need a ips file to work!
EDIT AGAIN:
Ok i found JPAN's applier tool but when i apply the patches my maps are messed up!!
Is there An other way of doing this? And sorry that im kind of annoying right now.

JPAN has a save block hack and then a hacked engine. He has two hacks. You need the save block hack.

Jpan's save block hack for the expanded seen/caught flags doesn't break GBA flashcart compatibility right?

Oh, and congrats Doesn't! I'm very happy to see that the expanded pokedex will be a reality.

Very nice tutorial. Might give it a try someday when I work up the courage! LOL

I'm surprised someone hasn't created a tool for this yet though, that does all this for us, as well as a tool fort adding extra Pokémon and types to the games so we don't have to go through and fiddle with all the hex code manually ourselves.

Would be nice to have a tool where we can just import an image for the new type, define a name, type weaknesses and strengths, and everything else a type needs, and then the tool to auto-find free space in the rom and add the newly made type(s) in.

Same for adding Pokémon and expanding the Pokédex.

Or would such tools be too difficult to make?

Don't pay any attention to me LOL I'm just dreaming aloud

Under our influence, Karatekid552's gen 3 hacking suite does this now. Also, adding a type is so easy, just import the image and edit the type effectiveness chart. But Eggs will use the type as of now so..

Under your influence??? Well, I guess so As soon as I saw this tut, I just had to start coding, lol.

I do like the idea of expanding types in my tool also. Only, if I am going to do it, I need a clean way to do it on RSE without breaking contests.

What a gem of a program that is

I like the fact that the program searches for free space, so one doesn't have to do so manually.

The tool itself can't add types yet, but if you add it by hand (not hard) then you can make Pokemon that use it.

So, I think we should stop discussing my tool on this thread. This thread is for this tutorial, which my tool directly followed, so that was the only reason I brought it up. Now we should get back on topic. Okay guys?

I'm not really looking to expand the total amount of Pokémon in the game in general, though, but rather to raise the number of entries in the Kanto Pokédex to something above 151.

Is there a tool that does this?

There's no tool, but it's a simple byte edit. I forget where, but if you search on the forums you'll find it.
