    Do you know of a proper way to append empty space to a ROM file?
    This game has all 16 original MB in use.

    A thorough liking for the series sparked the idea of hacking the games.

    Resources used and process:
    HEX editor
    Monkey Moore for the text table, truly excellent program for finding character tables.

    Textboxes were found by just looking for a pointer to the text once I could see where said text was. Then I hit a snag, there was nothing pointing to the textboxes. Through that route I could not get a hold of what makes the stages tick.
    Enter VBA SDL-H. The next thing I did was plow through traces looking for something useful using the address for the textbox. Eventually I came across something that looked a whole lot like a script parser. I fired up VBA-SDL-H set myself a breakpoint and observed. Rregister 1 gave me the offset of the script being read. Now I'm in the process of figuring out what all the functions in the scripting language do.
    Through this I also found a "master table" containing a bunch of pointers to the different things that make up a stage, for each stage.

    The portrait graphics were found using Tile Molester, they're not compressed.
    All other graphics turn out to be compressed and readable through UNlzGBA.

    On a different note. I recently headed back into ROM hacking. Not in Pokémon games though, but in Super Robot Wars Original Generation 2 for GBA. Mostly to see what I could figure out, in the meanwhile however I've almost figured out enough to start making an actual hack!
    Stuff I figured out in order of discovery:
    -Text table
    -Character portraits + Visual Basic program for inserting and viewing them
    -How textboxes are defined
    -How unit spawning is defined
    -Currently, after staring at a debugger all day: delving into the scripting system

    Hi! I've seen that you made titlescreen logo for foullump and I really liked it!!
    Can you show me how to make something like that or make it for me?

    Eruption's vid seems great! I'm surprised that you haven't animated the flowers in eruption though, I figured you'd be almost itching to try out all the cool little things that arose during your absence.

    That new video from Eruption looks really good, by the way.

    Same with me really. I hope to hack again once I've finished college or when I'm less busy. I'm also going to try and become more active here, as I miss talking to everyone.

    I am getting busier in real life, those days of high school are long gone. However, I still browse the forums here and hack, if only for less time.

    If you still need my help I'd be more than glad to sprite again.

    Oh thanks for replying and it's good to know that you're still working on eruption ! I have downloaded eruption out of curiosity one day and played the last beta of it. It was great and most of the events are rarely seen on hacks ( the bombing of that route, professor out of pokemon and that stuff ) I really liked it and then i searched for it's thread which was locked..
