years ago I was trying myself at my pokemon gold romhack, called fool's gold, and I wanted to edit some pokemon stats, movesets, encounter tables, trainer battles. But at some point I dropped it from lack of patience. I wouldn't be able to perform every little change in hex and I could not make myself to learn the necessary ASM skills. And basically I never have any idea for story because I restrain myself of dreaming big.
I am currently playing Pokemon Empyrean.

I keep having to start over, well that's not the main issue, the main problem is still that I have far more ideas than knowledge or experience.
I've made a small dent so far, but each time I move forward I either have a new idea, or run into a limitation of methods and need to change tools.

I started hex editing and adding features with tools, to my vanilla firered.
Then I found out about CFRU, held out for a bit, then gave in a decided to use that, since the extra space and features would be useful
if not necessary for what I had planned.

Then I realized that couldn't do what I needed, so now I'm trying pokefirered, but I need to figure how to port the CFRU added stuff before I can get back to adding/making my stuff, and also re-add everything I changed in binary.




well basically, I have three bugs that need to be fixed but I have no idea how to do that..... If I knew then I would have been finished with my rom hack last week.
for curiosity's sake what are the bugs? and what's your rombase?

It's a rom base of Pokemon Gold. The bugs are the old man in cherrygrove city dissapears in his scripted sequence and the rival pops up before his scripted event where you battle him.

hmm are you using level script? I've heard that sometimes issues like that can occur, but that's advance map, and I don't know if gen 2 hacks use advance map also.

That's the best I can come up with, but hope you can get that sorted.

I'm not using either but I appreciate the help though. I've been using GoldMap and JohtoMap.

ah, ok last in that case I'd say maybe ask JoJoBear for some help if he's willing, he's the only person I know that is really familiar with early gen development.

Kinda wish those early gen games had they're own rom hack section.

I don't know about the old man, but as for the rival, the game probably has a flag set too early, thus making him appear at the wrong time. Did you accidentally set a flag that is already being used by the game?
Nocturnal...? W-What does that mean?😕

Because some of the tools are very old and don't have any shortcuts to make development faster and easier.
unless you're hacking gen 1-2 the required tools should be pretty up to date.
what are you using?

I have this problem that I like the idea of hacking. I enjoyed messing with sprites and editing teams with A-Trainer and adjusting spawns and maps in Advance Map, but I could never put something together that wasn't the same as 100s of hacks just like it. I have big respect for creators such as Swampert Tools and HackMew (where did he go?) that have been around forever, and I think I keep coming back to hacking because of nostalgia for things like the original Shiny Gold. Obviously new and much easier to use hacking methods have come around in recent years.

Quick note, I ended up losing the IPS files for ALL my hacks in the Sideshow Showcase, I ended up factory resetting my PC before making backups. Since you can't download them because the downloads are broken, and I no longer have access to them, well, you can figure out the rest -.-

Cause I'm a slacker; and because I'm working on a big ROM hacking tutorial, I mod PC, I mod a Discord server AND I have my finals in one month and other life stuff. Sad. c:
