    With my hack, I'm wanting the player to wake up in their bed after the introduction, instead of getting off of the moving truck. How can I do this?

    I tried deleting the script in the moving truck's map. This caused me to start outside of a house in Petalburg directly after the intro. Don't want that xD

    TL;DR how do you change your starting location in the game?

    This is the main problem for all R/E/S hackers. There are programs out there that can change your starting location but they don't remove the truck sequence. Their are also ways of doing it via scripts but can be extremely buggy.
    I have attempted it myself but with no luck.
    Most hackers and hack players just ignore the truck sequence and pretend it never happens.

    If you can ignore the entire truck sequence, then click here to download HackMew's SMCA (Start Map Chooser Advance)
    If you want to remove the truck scene use this tool:

    (sry, can't post it properly cause i don't have 15 posts yet)
    To choose the startmap, use SMCA or edit the truckmap.
