The offending code in BPRE is at 0x3ED6E. It always loads from 0x02023BE6 - the physical attack stat of the Pokémon in question. (Obviously, it can load from other slots as well - point is - it always loads the physical attack stat.)

It is immediately followed by another few load commands which then get the physical defense of the opposing Pokémon.

Obviously - we could hijack this routine in a rather unattractive manner, and force it to recalculate the physical/special byte (as it CAN potentially be overwritten by this point) and then get the correct respective bytes from there.

I'm a bit tired right now, so I hope this makes sense. And I hope it helps explain some of the problems we've been having. Obviously, I haven't checked - but this could be the same on other ROMs like RSE as well - so I'd check carefully if I were you!

Jambo51 out!
It loads both stats, doesn't it? Physical to r7 and Special to r8..?
Code:
0803ED6E loc_0803ED6E:                           @ CODE XREF: sub_0803ECEC+6Cj
0803ED6E                 LDRH    R7, [R6,#2]               //Attacker's Attack stat
0803ED70                 LDR     R2, [SP,#0x4C+var_48]
0803ED72                 LDRH    R2, [R2,#4]
0803ED74                 STR     R2, [SP,#0x4C+var_38]
0803ED76                 LDRH    R3, [R6,#8]               //Attacker's Special-Attack stat

0803ED7E                 STR     R0, [SP,#0x4C+var_34]
It later loads the correct value in to r5.

Please correct me if you aren't getting this too. :\

    I think I've found the code which causes the Mirror Coat/Counter bug in Fire Red.
    Change it to this, and it should hopefully fix it.
    Code:
    0801F6C2: 86 7A
    0801F908: 00 2E
    0801F90A: 41 D1
    Also, Darthatron's routine for showing the images is slightly buggy. It turns out the move index is actually DMA protected, but in a really odd way. It only gets DMA shifted after certain actions are taken within the game's overworld. Anyway - to solve this, change the parts in BOLD in Darthatron's original routine (or just copy this routine, I suppose), and then follow Darthatron's original post to insert it.

    Code:
    .align 2
    .thumb
    Start:
     push {r0-r4}
     ldr r0, .CurMoveIndex
     ldrb r1, [r0]
     lsl r1, r1, #1
     ldr r0, .Move_List_Loc
     ldr r0, [r0]
     ldr r3, .number
     add r0, r0, r3
     add r0, r0, r1
     ldrh r3, [r0]
     cmp r3, #0x0
     beq Finish
     lsl r0, r3, #1
     add r0, r0, r3
     lsl r0, r0, #2
     ldr r1, .MoveBase
     add r0, r0, r1
     ldrb r4, [r0, #10]
     lsl r0, r4, #1
     add r4, r4, r0
     lsl r4, r4, #6
     ldr r0, .SplitImages
     add r0, r4
     ldr r1, .VRAM
     mov r2, #0x30
     swi #0xB 
     ldr r0, .SplitImages
     add r0, r4
     add r0, #0x60
     ldr r1, .VRAM
     mov r2, #0x1E
     lsl r2, #0x04
     add r1, r1, r2
     mov r2, #0x30
     swi #0xB 
    Finish:
     pop {r0-r4}
     ldr r4, .Some_Offset
     ldr r0, [r4]
     ldr r1, .Return_Addr
     bx r1
    .align 2
    .MoveBase:  .word 0x08250C04
    .number: .word 0x00003258
    .CurMoveIndex: .word 0x0203B16D
    .Move_List_Loc:  .word 0x0203B140

    Thanks for that, Jambo. We still need to go about finding a better location to put it as well. I can't believe I didn't notice it was DMA protected.

      The Emerald patch should be really helpful
      Thanks for all the amazing effort, everybody!
      Kicking myself at the timing, just a month later and my Touhoumon hack would have had a Phys/Spec split.
      As every move is customised and stat spreads and movepools of 67 are already done though, it'd be more effort than it's worth in a game already full of many unique features, I suppose.
      But my third hack will really love this a whole lot, and it's all thanks to the persistence of the people involved in this thread!

        Change these bytes:

        @0813A130: 0x2F
        @0813A17B: 0x47

        Here's the source:
        Code:
        .align 2
        .thumb
        Start:
        	push {r0-r4}

        Finish:
        	pop {r0-r4}
        	ldr r4, .Some_Offset
        	ldr r0, [r4]
        	ldr r1, .Return_Addr
        	bx r1
        
        .align 2
        .MoveBase:		.word 0x08250C04
        .CurMoveIndex:	.word 0x0203B16D
        .Move_List:		.word 0x02003268
        
        .VRAM:			.word 0x06001800
        .SplitImages:	.word 0xYYYYYYYY
        
        .Some_Offset:	.word 0x0203B148
        .Return_Addr:	.word 0x0813A17C+1
        Change the .SplitImages (0xYYYYYYYY) pointer to where ever you have the images.
        The images are uncompressed. And should look like this:
        They need to be in this order. Use TileMolester or something to insert them.
        They use the same palette as the Types, which is located at 0x08E95DBC in a clean FireRed ROM. :)
        I have a problem with this...

        The images appear fine while outside battle...

        but, if we check summary screen while in battle, all attacks have physical icon...

        could you fix this problem?

        ====================

        EDIT: It works fine even it's in battle after I use Jambo's fix code...



        thank you~

          You need to open the ROM in a hex editor and then change the bytes at the locations specified. Search the tutorials section for hex editing tutorials.

          And I don't think it's stupid. In fact, I'm glad you asked how to do it, rather than asking me to do it for you.

            I've spotted what could potentially be a huge bug in the FR version of the hack. I'm not 100% certain exactly what it actually breaks, but it breaks something.
            I can confirm that it completely breaks the functionality of Blaze, Torrent, Overgrow and probably (although I have yet to see the check itself) Swarm. It also breaks some sort of check which would normally halve the amount of damage dealt for certain types of attack under certain circumstances.

            To see evidence for yourself, go to 0x3F102. You will see there are a bunch of type based checks, which read the category byte kept in R9. Under normal circumstances, the game will check the type, and if it matches, will branch link to 0x19F18, passing 0xE in R0, 0x0 in R1, 0x0 in R2 and a changeable byte (seems to depend on the type) in R3. What this checks and returns, I do not know.

            However, due to the split changes implemented, none of these checks ever pass, and as such, whatever this piece of functionality is, as well as the abilities named above, simply do not work.

              I don't know this post will help or not....
              I also attacked the B/W System (the upgrade of DPSS)

              This is a part of the readme file from Japanese Community DPSS about the changes... I simply used google translate...

              Damage Calculation routine edited, FR offset 0x0803e458 (Emerald 0x080690bc), this routine fixes ThickFat calculation and Rock-type while Sandstorm is in effect... also talking about Register 11 (?)

              Counter/Mirror Coat FR 0x0801ee94 and EM 0x08047b04
              I guess we already fix this problem

              Processing Accuracy
              FR offset 0x0801d5d4 and EM offset 0x0804629e
              it fixes "Hustle" Ability

              Badges Effect
              FR routines: 0x0803e458 0x080144f8
              EM routines: 0x0803cb54 0x080690bc

              Item processing
              FR routine 0x0803e458 and EM 0x080690bc
              fixes move-based item such as sharp beak, black belt, etc

                I just found a glitch.

                Apperently, if you use a Flash Fire boosted Fire attack the game crashes (Goes back to the gameboy screen)

                  Mate, we have known about this glitch for Months! Darthatron's version of the split works nearly fully as intended, and doesn't carry the glitches mentioned above. The only glitch it does carry with it is easy enough to fix.

                    Does anyone also confirm that Hidden Power does minimal damage in the latest patch (I only tested Fire Red)?

                    the other things:
                    - rock-type won't get boosted sp.def while sandstorm
                    - sunny day and rain also won't affect fire and water moves' power
                    - abilities that boost certain type's power like "Blaze" don't work (as Jambo said)
                    - power-raising items also don't work...

                        Can't say I've ever tested it, so I don't know.

                        This is an effect that apparently was introduced in Gen 4. It's not a bug, it's just how it worked in Gen 3.

                        These definitely do not work under Darthatron's system, but there is a fix available. It's not ideal, but it works.

                        Looks like I'll have to completely rework my patch to get these bugs fixed...

                          I can confirm that it completely breaks the functionality of Blaze, Torrent, Overgrow and probably (although I have yet to see the check itself) Swarm. It also breaks some sort of check which would normally halve the amount of damage dealt for certain types of attack under certain circumstances.

                          To see evidence for yourself, go to 0x3F102. You will see there are a bunch of type based checks, which read the category byte kept in R9. Under normal circumstances, the game will check the type, and if it matches, will branch link to 0x19F18, passing 0xE in R0, 0x0 in R1, 0x0 in R2 and a changeable byte (seems to depend on the type) in R3. What this checks and returns, I do not know.

                          However, due to the split changes implemented, none of these checks ever pass, and as such, whatever this piece of functionality is, as well as the abilities named above, simply do not work.
                          I can confirm that this bug is present in the Ruby version of the hack as well, so it most likely is also present in the Emerald one too, since the Emerald one was by Darthatron, and the Ruby hack I did is based off of Darthatron's.

                            I guess while we're talking about it, Weather Ball's damage is minimal just like Hidden Power's. Probably a side effect of it being so small compared to the JP ones, none of the type-related checks are in it, just damage and type effectiveness.

                            Also, what does Sandstorm not increasing SDef until 4th gen have to do with anything? Isn't this a a thread for research into a hack emulating 4th gen mechanics in 3rd gen ROMs? The JP hacks posted by pokemon1412 (on this page, post #134) have those implemented along with offsets in JP ROMs about what does what. People with actual technical knowledge about what's going on in the ROMs could probably just look at those and reverse-engineer them.


                            big talk for somebody who doesnt know whats actually going on in a rom, huh

                              Cheers, I'll investigate it and see if this is still the case after I've applied my fix.

                              All I was saying is rather than being a bug, it was an oversight. We should still apply it, but it's not a bug. That was all I was getting at.

                                Sorry to ask, but with the various links to different patches, what patch(es) and script do I need to implement this is Fire red? New to this, and want to do a good job with my rom.

                                -----------

                                Reread the board with a clear head (stupid that I read this last night while tired). Got the code, just need to implement it. Aware of the glitches involving torrent,blaze etc, and sunny day/rain dance.
                                Many thanks to you all, your persistence is incredible.

                                Also one last question. Does the version of the rom matter? I backed up my own ruby and fire red, they're EU rather than US.

                                  I haven't released it yet, hence why you can't find it. I'll dig it up and tag it onto the end of this post when I find it.

                                  Yes, it matters. Everything we have researched will explicitly only work on the US version of the ROM. The thing is, you MAY have a US version. The english european ROM was actually the american one!

                                  Boot up your FR ROM. If it is in english and it does NOT say Game Freak Presents, then you should be good to go.

                                    Not to sound rude or anything, but it sure is taking you a while to dig up and post a fix that you supposedly had a few months ago..

                                    Actually, why didn't you just post the actual fix then, anyway? It would have saved everybody a lot of time, and it probably would have already been ported to the other third gen games by now, too.

                                      I haven't posted it since then because I was:
                                      1) Testing the damned thing to make sure it worked
                                      2) Being busy with exams and coursework
                                      3) Having a life beyond hacking

                                      Code:
                                      .text
                                      .align 2
                                      .thumb
                                      .thumb_func
                                      .global LCDPSSGlitchFix
                                      main:
                                       ldr r0, [sp, #0x8]
                                       lsl r1, r0, #0x1
                                       add r1, r1, r0
                                       lsl r1, r1, #0x2
                                       ldr r0, attackdata
                                       add r0, r0, r1
                                       ldrb r0, [r0, #0x2]
                                       mov r11, r0
                                       mov r2, r11
                                       cmp r2, #0xD
                                       bne continue
                                       mov r0, #0x0
                                       str r0, [sp, #0x0]
                                       ldr r0, return
                                       bx r0
                                      continue: ldr r3, returntwo
                                       bx r3
                                      .align
                                      return: .word 0x0803F10D
                                      returntwo: .word 0x0803F127
                                      attackdata: .word 0x08250C04
                                      At 0x3F102, change the code to 01 4A 10 47 00 00 XX XX XX 08.

                                      That isn't all though, you also need to change:

                                      0803F126: 5B 46
                                      0803F14A: 58 46
                                      0803F17A: 5A 46
                                      0803F1AA: 58 46
                                      0803F1DA: 5A 46

                                      You should be good to go after that.

                                        I see a number of problems with this fix- it doesn't appear to resolve hold items or weather, which will still check against register 9. Weather Ball and Hidden Power will also probably break, as they operate by changing register 9. Thick Fat is also untouched, and will thus never work as it checks register 9 for type (and even if that was fixed it'd only weaken special attacks).

                                        Implementation-wise I'm not too fond of this either- if we used register 11 for the physical/special byte, and register 9 for the type, things like Mud Sport and pinch abilities would solve themselves. It'd also be nice if we could do this without method hijacking, so that non-ASM savvy people can implement this with little difficulty.

                                        Anyway, I've spent the last week working on this, and have a working fix here: s7.zetaboards.com/Nuzlocke_Forum/topic/8679031/1/#new

                                          My exact words were that it wouldn't be perfect, nor was it ideal. What someone needs to do (as boring as it is) is sit and go through the entire damage calculation part of the routine, and see if we can catch any such bugs. It is entirely possible that there are others which we have missed at some stage in this routine.

                                          What possible use is this for people such as myself who cannot access the page because we're not members? Would you kindly post it here, and we can go from there?
