Tricky stuff ahead!
How can I create my own "table" in Firered? This is my idea for a berry system:
I'm using DNS. Basically, I make a small table, with one byte containing the data for one tree. This data is specifically the day that the tree was last interacted with. The script compares the current day with the day stored in the table. If they're the same, then the script doesnt give a berry. If they aren't the same, then the script gives a berry, and changes the day stored in the table to the current day. The table I *attempted* to make is at offset 0x830000. The script is below:
#org 0x82551B
comparefarbytes 0x3005540 0x8830000
if 0x1 goto 0x8825564
call 0x88255D2
msgbox 0x8825660 MSG_YESNO '"It's a berry tree.\nThere are [buf..."
compare LASTRESULT 0x0
if 0x1 goto 0x882560E
checkitemroom 0x407C 0x1
compare LASTRESULT 0x0
if 0x1 goto 0x8825611
additem 0x407C 0x1

#org 0x82560E

#org 0x825611
msgbox 0x882561C MSG_FACE '"Oh, there's no room for a berry!\n..."

' Strings
#org 0x825660
= It's a berry tree.\nThere are [buffer1]s growing.\lWould you like to pick one?

#org 0x8256AE
= There are no more ripe berries\nleft to pick.

#org 0x82561C
= Oh, there's no room for a berry!\nDecided to leave the tree alone.

I can't tell if the reason the commands won't work are because of the data types, or simple error. Please help!

I think I'm done with ROM hacking. I'll still pop in and visit, though.
