View Full Version : A new beggining, and an introduction.

February 26th, 2008, 7:34 PM
Hello! My name is Xaivier, and I would like to introduce myself...

Im currently in high-school, my specialization is in programming (its my greatest talent in school, and have been complimented by my teacher on numerous occasions.)

I have learned 4 programming languages up to this point, which are; Visual Basic, PLC, C++ (My favourite) and Java (very very little =x)

I eventually decided to join this forum due to my interest in hacking a pokemon game. I tried about a year and a half ago, and to say the least I falied horribly. (I had no knowledge of programming, and very little info to start with.) So, after a few faliures I stopped trying. I have come back now to try again, I have read up a bit on POKEscript (Its simple, and simmaler to C++ in ways.) and have tried mapping (which is time consuming, but easy to learn IMHO) I also attempted swapping a pokemon sprite today, just to see if I could (with some tutorials I only had a minor error).

Enough about programming and hacking though...

My other hobbies are art (which is mostly doodling), cooking, and playing DnD. (Yes I am a huge nerd.)

Im a pretty nice guy, but I am lazy.

I would be very pleased with getting to know the members of this community!


Also, anyone mind telling me the basic programs Il need to hack? I have advancedmap, a rom, an emulator, Poke Editor Pro, unLZ.gba, and irFanveiw.

Any other major ones I need? (AVmap says I need a program for pokescript for example.)

Welcome Xaivier!
You seem to be an energetic one ^^ be sure to read the rules before starting your posting streak.
There are a lot of hackers and game makers in here, just hang out at that section of PC, and they are sure to help you out in anything. Are you a graphics artist too?
See you around~

Thanks guys! Nice to meet you all!

Anyways, I meant to post this in the romhack forum o_o it seems to have been moved here, or Im just dumb enough to post it in the wrong forum.

Oh well, Il leave it here.

Once again, thanks for the welcome!

I know nothing about hacking XP

Welcome to the forum! Read the rules (http://pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=91723) and check the FAQ! PM me if you need help (about the forum, not hacks please!) Bye!

Heh, don't worry, I wont go around asking people about hacking. I enjoy finding the information I need on my own.

Haha, it was probably more suited to the introduction forum, but I'm actually very interested in hacking, myself. I know absolutely nothing about the technical/programming aspect, but spriting is way fun. Also welcome.

Edit: I just noticed you're in Canada--Canadians are awesome. I know that's a stereotype in and of itself, but Canadians by and large seem to be way cool people.

I'm liking how new people, such as yourself, actually are putting time into your welcome posts.

lol, were all lazy here...
Like Fable said and the others, really just read the rules and everything will go smoothely man...

Also, have fun, you will if you stay active...

Oh noes, more canadiens, I think that's like the number one population here. xD Also your into hacking, so emulation should be your place ;D

Well hope you enjoy it man! ;D

Already been to the emulation forum. Read a few torturials and jumped in head first.

I already started mapping (I enjoy art, and have worked with hacking games before.)

The programs for hacking have come A LONG way since I tryed a year and a half ago.

I might eventually post some art up, if I get any hand-drawn stuff I like scanned. I mostly doodle.
