MrDollSteak's Decap. and Attack Rombase (Version 1.5a)


This is a rombase for Fire Red.

I was inspired after being involved with the 'Move Resources Thread' to make a patch that includes all these moves for new hackers who aren't comfortable with hex editing yet, or for those who just haven't yet been bothered to expand all the tables, and even people who are capable of doing so, but don't want to do it all again for a new hack. When repointing the relevant tables and adding all the new move information I also decided to put all of them in lower case to match the Gen 5 games. As such I decided to decapitalise the whole rom.

Overview of Features:

- Decapitalisation
The game is now almost entirely decapitalised, this includes oft-overlooked menu buttons and header instructions.
The few exceptions are actual graphics that act as buttons eg. the Pokemon types that show up.
A few more ones I may not have noticed may also been in there so please point those out.

- Pokedex Fixes
A few new Pokedex features, including Hackmew's pokedex glitch fix, and general changes to dex entries.
I've replaced a few of the ridiculous ones (Raichu, Gastly I'm looking at you) and the just plain odd ones (Kadabra).

- Physical/Special/Status Split
Credits to Doesn'tknowhowtoplay for his patch.

- Physical/Special/Status Split Icons
Credits to Darthatron for his original routine, and Jambo51 for its improvement.

- 131 New Gen 4 and 5 moves, with space for 26 custom moves
All these moves have relevant animations, effects and descriptions.
Credits to Jambo51 for his research into adding new moves, Itman for his tutorial, Chaos Rush for his thread on creating new animations and researching into how to expand the animation background table, which Tajaros later converted into a tutorial.
Credits to the 'Move Resources Thread' and all its contributors. Kurapika also made a few effects that are used, and also safely repointed the Soundproof table to allow for custom moves to be blocked by the ability.

- Updated Move Effects, Base Power and Accuracy for existing moves
All moves from the original games that have received new base powers and effects in new games have been edited to reflect these changes. Thanks to KDS, Spherical Ice and mamamama for some updated effects

- Updated Movesets for Pokemon
All 386 Pokemon have updated movesets to match their BW2 and XY ones as closely as possible.

- Sound Moves hit through Substitute
As of 1.3b, just like in Pokemon X and Y, Sound moves hit through substitutes.

- New Abilities
As of 1.5a, there are about 60 new abilities from Gens IV-VI!
Thanks to Doesn'tknowhowtoplay for pointing me in the direction of how to create the new abilities he made for YAFRH.
I would also like to thank him for getting me started on making new abilities.
Thanks are also needed for Jambo51 and Karatekid552 for the abilities contained in the 649 patch which I have ported and edited to get working.

- New Items
New to 1.4 is the addition of a few new items, namely the Choice Specs, Choice Scarf and Assault Vest.
I'd like to thank Doesn'tknowhowtoplay for explaining item checks to me, and giving me his Choice Specs implementation which I expanded to include the Choice Scarf.
New to 1.5 is the Eviolite

- The Fairy Type!
New to 1.1 is the Fairy Type! Unlike other hacks, the Fairy type does not replace the ??? type, meaning struggle still works perfectly.
Currently all Pokemon have been correctly retconned (including Mr. Mime) and the same can be said for moves.
The Fairy-type moves from XY have also been included although due to XY's increased name slots, they've been given different names.
Another feature is the inclusion of the Fairy-type into the in-game Type Matchup List in the Help System.
While the Help System is often neglected it can be a good reminder of what is effective against Fairies.
As of 1.3 the 'Type Mode' aspect of the Pokedex has been fixed so that Fairy Pokemon have their own sections!

- PSS Icons and Move Descriptions

- Fairy Type

Things to note:

The game leaves all Firered Scripts untouched, so the game itself can be played should you just want Fire Red with decapitalisation, the PSS and Gen 4 and 5 moves and abilities.

I will often be updating this Rombase with new moves, effects, animations and abilities, once I make them. As such if you want to make custom moves; start from the back of the list, so future patches don't conflict. I will likely leave space for at least 20 new moves, so bear that in mind.

This base IS compatible with Jpan's Hacked Engine. Though you will need to apply this rombase FIRST, otherwise the decapitalised scripts will overwrite the free space and various tables in there.
This base IS NOT compatible with hacks that are in progress.
This base IS NOT compatible with YAPE, if you want to edit moves or Pokemon, you will have to use G3HS, G3T or Pokemon Game Editor.
In order to maximise compatibility with G3HS, I have changed the name of the rom from BPRE to MrDS, this means it WILL NOT WORK in any romhacking tool except for G3HS UNLESS you change it back AFTER opening it in G3HS!

To do this open the rom up in a Hex Editor and change the bytes at 0x0000AC to say BPRE and NOT MrDS.

The ini for G3HS has been UPDATED so you will need to REPLACE it with the one I provide in the download.
