I can see why it would encourage laziness, but it would help beginners and people who have not the slightest idea of how to script, so it has a good side and a bad side. Hacks would also require less scripters, and it would be easier to do a one-person hack without a team (Which I am currently doing).

I probably will use this tool, but only so I can get a more hands on feel with exactly what each script does. I feel like I could learn better this way. Also, I agree with the people saying that it's good for beginners, but promotes laziness, which is why I say this tool should be a good way to LEARN, not to use this tool and only this tool. Plus, you still have to do some complex stuff when it comes to actually getting it to work in the game, and with the other aspects of a hack.

Still though, I say this tool is a good learning experience for probably the hardest yet most vital part of ROM hacking.

I honestly think that this whole "laziness" thing is an excuse for people to prevent others from taking a more convenient route.

True. Scripting via hand code is more versatile. Granted, I also know a few languages myself that are utilized in this way (HTML, CSS, bit of Java, etc.). But saying "Oh... I don't like this because it promotes laziness for those who don't wanna code..." is simply distasteful. Please stop with the negativity and grow up. At least this guy is trying to help others with something to make our lives easier in this wretched world. Is that to wrong to accept?

On another note, for those who are saying that. I am just starting out with making my own hack aside from a busy lifestyle (college) and I want something that will help me get my feet into the water with this pokescript. I prefer to work out the basics of what I wanna do in my hack and then expound that with the more flashy stuff. In essence, using this program for the basics and then maybe some advanced sripts here and there where necessary. But doing so makes me a lazy person? I don't believe so. Also doing a one-man hack, so high fives bigboi!

Now I'm not no coding guru, expert, fanatic, or any of the sort. Neither do I plan to have an "unquenched thirst for knowing ALL there is on the most advanced techniques of POKESCRIPT!" For my goal in my hack, my focus is more on the story, and not a "Look what I can do." Sort of thing with hacks. Maybe we all can have that mindset.

Moral of this story folks? If you have nothing constructive to say about the program. Don't waste your finger-time posting at all. Case in point. Jeez it's freaking called pokescriptHELPER, not something like


Keep your britches on.

I haven't even downloaded the thing yet. For the creator of this program. Keep up the good work man for even thinking about this and speeding up my hack time.
Best Regards

Very well spoken, Gigafrost. Although I'm never going to use this tool, I'm not going to tell everyone that does use it that they're a bunch of lazy good-fer-nuthinz and fail at life just because they don't conform to my way of thinking. Just like everyone has their own identity ,we also have our own method of doing things. This could include or exclude the use of Script Help programs. As long as the end result (aka a hack) is worth playing, then the method is irrelevant. Anyways, the GUI looks very professional, can't wait to download it to check the functionality of it.

I think this tool's gonna be great for beginners. Or, if there's just one aspect of scripting that confuses you(someone previously said something about the movements confusing them). In that sense, it's great. Also, you said it gives you the script all ready to use, right? Well, you can, in a sense, use that feature to help you learn scripting. As in, you make the script here, then you just read what it gave you to compile and kinda just pick it up. Just my thoughts. Keep working on this, it'll help out a lot of beginners.

I've found where it saves scripts (in the PKM script helper folder, BTW) But how do you compile the .rbc file?

Strange enough, whenever I go to open the script helper, It starts to load the force closes. Question version works though. Any suggestions?

I have a problem with the scripts, okay I got the offset for the script, I add it in the game, but when I speak with someone the text is all glitched! It says something like: " Pol PoK Pol PoPo PoK A C < Pol PoPo Pol PoK < "
Can someone please tell me how to fix It?

However, beginners will eventually realize that this tool merely scratches the surface of the field of scripting and will read a scripting tutorial if they find themselves in need of more advanced techniques.

I guess I just don't see why people are so upset that this tool makes it easier to get started with scripting (even if it isn't "real" scripting). Especially since a lot of you believe that using tools doesn't make you inferior. :\
Amen to that. What is you guys problem?
