    Anyway if that makes no sense, forget what I said.
    That actually does sort of make sense. But unfortunately, it would be even more difficult. It would require asynchronous networking (or it would be insanely laggy), and I'm pretty sure that the existing functionality is synchronous.

    Why haven't I seen this thread before? I tried the exact idea of making hacks co-op friendly. Obviously it didn't go well and many things weren't functional at all. If there is any possibility, some major hacking is required. But I settled for replacing the simple link rooms with one huge area filled with activities, adventure, and multiplayer-friendly events. Progress wasn't too bad but I gave up for a while due to lack of proper testing and help.

    If anyone is interested, I can try to release another team thread for it. (The last one had ZERO replies the whole month.)

    VBA has a thing where it can connect to IP addresses for linking, pretty much making games wi-fi compatible right? I can see how that can be expanded to make a server. I don't know the first thing about making that sort of thing but I hope people who do can try it.

    It doesn't really matter. As David said, there is just too much needed to make things work correctly. He's said it pretty darn well a few posts back. ASM hacking is must when it comes to the rom, and probably a emulator itself.

    True, but I still made a semi-stable area with compatible activities. Not as good as I wanted it but it's a start.

      I really don't think this would work. I am 100% sure it'd be easier to make a game to be exactly like pokemon, with Multiplayer abilities, than to hack one into fire red.

      The inevitable? I can clean up what I have now and release it. It's already better than the 3rd gen's normal multiplayer rooms. (It's in Ruby by the way. But I think I can do FireRed.)

          If somebody can get me a tutorial or two on how to program extensions or plug ins for vba/n$gba for c++ i can start up a project to create a plug in that makes the users computer speak with another users computer in order to create a connection.

          you would be extremely wrong because im working on programming a pokemon game in c++ and the engine (most difficult part of the game) takes calculus and such just to do the graphic rendering which is very basic for a game programmer.
