    Thanks!
    I'm not good with a hex editter, because Hex workshop isn't compatible with my screen reader.
    The memory viewer may be easier though.

    Well, actually visual boy memory viewer isn't compatible.
    In adition, when I press tab for the next item on the screen while on one of the custom controls vba crashes.
    I don't suppose you could send me a sav file with the complete Pokédex could you?
    I understand if not.

      What is a .rar file? How do I use it? Is it a patch? Like an .ips? How do I apply it? Please pm me the answer, as I might not be able to check this thread later.

      A .rar is used for compression, like .zip. Use Winrar or 7Zip to open it and extract its' contents.

        I'll PM you a link to a save file which has a completed Pokédex then.
        Hopefully that'll help you out.

        Thanks for explaining how RAR files work for me

          Hey Jambo51, can you also give me one of those save files with completed Pokedex, preferably in 128kb format? I was hex editing my save states to change the species of some of my PC Pokemon to see the new Pokemon, but it's quite a hassle with XOR and everything. A completed Pokedex would be really useful.

          Edit- Thanks !

                Please don't text speak. It's absolutely horrible. If you're gonna request that I do something for you in the future, I'll blatantly ignore it if it's written in text speak.

                The save file won't work because I've changed how the save system works in between the currently released alpha and the latest version I'm currently working on. You need to do it using the VBA memory edit as I posted above.

                You still need to give yourself the National Pokédex and Pokédex in order to see them however. To do that, compile this script using XSE, and give it to an NPC. Speak to the NPC in game to activate the Pokédexes.

                Code:
                #dynamic 0x760000
                #org @main
                 
                lock
                faceplayer
                setflag 0x829
                special SP_FRNATIONAL
                release
                end

                    So not sure if anyone has noticed this yet but I have a charmander and rattata and when I switch to rattata the game resets, but when I switch from rattata to charmander, it's fine.

                    -Edit-

                    Just tested spearow since I caught one, works just fine when switching to him.

                      I came across this bug for the first time a few weeks ago. It's fixed on my version of the ROM.

                        Cool stuff. I have to say I really like the way this thing looks. I can't wait to see it done at least pokemon-wise and then when someone makes a mod for advancemap to work with it. Right now I'm stuck just playing those hacks that just have a couple of Gen Iv/V in them that replace other gens, not to say that replacing most of gen 3 is a bad idea (gen 3 was terrible) but ya know...

                        Anyways... How far fixing the movesets are you on your version?

                          Whisper it, but I hear there may be an A-Map mod available for this very purpose... ;P

                          Indeed. I also hated Gen 3's Pokémon.

                          No further than I was before. It's a long boring process, one which I seriously cannot find the motivation to tackle at this stage. XD

                            Ah, well if I weren't already swamped with trying to get a job and going to school full time amongst other things, I'd volunteer to at least do the tedious project of that if I were taught how and it not be too difficult to do.

                              Just wanted to post a quick update.
                              I now have 34 out of the 88 new abilities working. This includes a couple of small custom battle scripts as well as a lot of ASM.

                              New Abilities Bold indicates that it's added Italics indicates that it requires a custom battle script Underline indicates that is has no in-battle effect

                                  Hoooly crap. You've done some amazing work here. The physical/special split alone is reason enough to patch this just for an FR playthrough.

                                  I never thought it would be possible for FireRed to be so thoroughly modified.

                                    Ok this might be very noobish of me but i just want to ask some things
                                    I play the patch on my ipod (gpsphone emulator, jailbroken ipod 2G)
                                    Every pokemon that isn't normally in FR only has the move 'Transform' (Mankey, Octillery, ...)
                                    And i was playing, and i wanted to let my metapod evolve, whenever it reaches lvl 10 and it is supposed to lvl up my game just goes black right after the fight...

                                    Again, i apologize if this is because of the beta, or allready is told in any of the previous pages.

                                    Thanks

                                      Not sure what this means, but in A-Map, the pokemon don't even go far into gen 4...

                                        This is simply, as you stated, because it is only in an alpha stage. Not many Pokemon have movesets inserted yet and I working to add these for Jambo now. As for the evolving it could be missing data, or sprites but it will get fixed by the next beta/alpha.

                                        A-Map does not currently support Jambo's patch. There isn't much we can do about is except for see if Lu-Ho will be willing to fix it and add support for the patch. For now you can change wild Pokemon locations using HEX.

                                            I'll be waiting for the movesets to be in. This is the kind of hack I've always wanted.

                                              I've been hard at work adding new abilities and fixing bugs as they arise.
                                              The patch is all but finished on my end as it so happens!

                                              Did you ever stop to think that the 2 may be related? That, perhaps, myself and Gamer2020 shared information, routines and the sort? Lol. Quite a few features in PGE were added to support the new features in both my ROM and his ROM. I'm still very thankful he took the time and effort to add the stuff.

                                              Also, wasn't Pokémon Next Generation an actual HACK, as opposed to a ROM base for others to hack on top of? (Correct me if I'm wrong... lol)

                                              You could be waiting a while, bud. They are a pain to implement.

                                              What I still have left to do:
                                              53 Abilities (34 in and working, 1 has no battle effects for a total of 88)
                                              Move Animations
                                              Move Effects
                                              Movesets (Speedster is doing these on my behalf - Thanks again!)
                                              Forme Transitions (currently, only Rotom and Arceus actually change Forme, the rest are currently static).

                                              I fixed the Physical/Special split bug which was discovered on LC on my ROM earlier today, so don't worry about that.

                                                  After finishing this patch, you'll make Emerald 649 Patch, don't you?
