    Pretty much Wine/X11 will cover any need for Windows (unless you really don't want to).

    Google is your friend.
    Thanks for the prompt response!

    Are emulators native to the macintosh OS that much worse? You didn't really entertain the idea of using a program native to the system i.e. ConsoleTool/Tinke/NDS editor. From your statement about ROMs & binary, I gather that editing can occur regardless of generation of Pokémon? Also, no one seems to have an exhaustive collection of information detailing hex-editing the newest generational ROMs, might you be able to suggest such a source? Lastly, as these tasks("acquire any and every...splice") seem fairly simple in comparison to other mods, is hex editing the most efficient means of doing so?

    Thanks again

    Whilst we are asking questions, do people like those "crossover" hacks, as in Pokemon and another series (like TV series, other games, etc), just out of curiosity (as I have had a weird click to do a Firefly/Pokemon crossover, I just need to figure it out)?
    They vary greatly in size, depending on the content. Some .NDS images have only 8MB of data, while others have 256MB of data, untrimmed. It more or less depends on what it has (ie. Music, 3D Models, images, textures, etc.)

    Well there are none except Desmume and that sucks bollocks (NO$GBA has been optimized by the author a lot, and Desmume isn't even complete).

    Yes, you can, but then you have to research the ROM file structure, and then that gets a little messy.

    And ConsoleTool is a Java applet that runs fine on Mac. Search for "Lowlines" on Google. He's a wonderful guy from the Romhacking.net forums and he's made a couple tools in Java that will run on any system (provided you have the applet).

    Seriously though, just get any PC ASAP (I got an old one that still runs on XP from my dad) and that will solve your problems. Trust me. You will still use your Mac for simple hex edits (for research & such), but you'll still need a PC to be able to function correctly.

      Idk if im posting in the wrong thread if I am someone let me know lol. Im also new so don't really know how to use this forum at ALL. But I am making a ROM hack of FR and I'm wanting to do the journey of the character jimmy from the chronicles so its not a remake of any games nor is it based on the anime. So the story is gonna be based on the character jimmy and i already got a lot of the story planned but I am asking if anybody would like to help with the hack? Not help me try to understand things but to help with the hack. I don't really want or have the time to do everything. If anybody would like to help just PM me and tell me what you would like to do in the ROM and ill go into detail more if anybody is interested.

          I have been around for a good year and I have never hear of any hack that sounds even vaguely like that...

          On a unrelated note, anyone want to insert some tiles for me?

            Just curious, is VB.NET a good programming language for tools? It's what I am learning in school, but C# comes around next year.

              Yes, but you'll have to change some scripts. You simply change the player's room to link to Pallet Town.

              But why would you want to do that?

                I have a idea for a Pokmeon red 4th gen remake...

                Basically, I want to keep it to the orginal as possible, change the tms... Remove the physical/special spilt, redo the base stats... etc...

                    Tinke. (google is your friend)

                    And please think about what you're doing before attempting any sort of remake. PC has had trouble with that in the past with GSC remakes.

                      Hey everyone, its been a while since I've posted on PokeCommunity. It's been bothering me lately, I wonder if its a good idea to have like a standard set of ASM tutorials. Thing is, I find none of the tutorials so far are actually complete (including mine).

                      Thoughts?

                        Yeah much understandable and much easier ASM tutorials would be great...

                        It would be awesome! Especially what can be done with ASM in ROM hacking and how to implement it =)
                        It would surely bring new hackers to the scene

                          Thoughts?
                          That would be extremely beneficial to the ROM hacking community. :D

                          Like many others have said, I feel like the existing tutorials don't quite show us practical applications to Pokemon. I know ASM is a programming language that doesn't just include Pokemon ROMs, but there's a reason 99% of the hacks on POKEcommunity is Pokemon.

                              Yeah, go ahead and start one. I do suggest that you try and learn things by searching around in the tutorials section or something. It's never too complicated if you're committed/motivated enough, so go ahead and try it out!

                                It would surely bring new hackers to the scene

                                I tried to do that back then but never got to cover the application side. This time I'd write on GoogleDocs, by the way what do you guys think of the existing ones I wrote. Are they easy to follow? I plan to redo them but I need to know whether it is too hard, too easy, too much theory etc.

                                  Kinda late to the party but I wouldn't mind them. I'd love to learn ASM and write my own hooks and whatnot.

                                  And I got a map viewer for the 4th Gen. Gotta love this view:

                                  Wow, this is awesome! I've always wondered what's behind the league's building.
