Greetings, denizens of the ROM Hacking section! I am Hopeless Masquerade, a now five year member of PokéCommuninty, and I've been hacking since I was a new member all those years ago. If you're anything like I was back then, then you know that ROM hacking is actually a lot harder than you expected, what with managing all that data and knowing all kinds of fancy terms and techniques. It sure would have been nice if someone was able to walk you through it, and not with stuff from like 2004, am I right? Well I am here to do just that. I will be creating a hack and sharing all the steps that I take as I go through it, and you'll be able to make your own version of it alongside me! Think of it as a huge interactive tutorial, and by the end we'll all have made a fun little hack of our own.
I will be sorting my steps below in the order I post, and I will be posting them for as long as I can keep going. Each step will have its own thread so that people can ask questions pertaining to each topic there.
About the Hack
Here is where I'll be posting information about the hack as it comes together!
Not anytime soon unfortunately. The computer I was using to work on this is out of commission for the time and I won't be able to get it going for a while. I can't give you an estimate, but worst-case I'll be able to continue this in May, and if I can I'll try and get something out sooner.
Yo man, I just finished the 4th part of this guide. I noticed that this post was edited last March. Will the guide continue? I'm getting fired-up on making a ROM hack, but I don't think there'll be a part 5. Great map tho, It got me learning the basics of advanced map.
