Quick Questions & Answers


This thread is for any quick questions you might have, that would not warrant their own threads as they could likely be answered in one or two posts. If you have a bigger problem you need help with, feel free to make a separate thread for it.

Thread rules


Do not demand for answers to your questions!
People to not have to answer your questions, they do it because they want to! Not only are those posts annoying, they also are completely pointless! If such a post is found, it will probably be deleted.

When answering, quote the post with the question.
This is here to simply keep organization. It is much easier to read the thread when you have both the question and the answer. The users quoted will also get a notification so they will know their question has been replied to.

how do you add pokemon from 4th and 5th Gen to a 3rd gen game?
thats where im stuck at.
Get the 4th gen and 5th gen sprites from the Art and Design section. Download them. Then download Gen III Rom Hacking Suite and once you open it, there is a sprite tab. It shows all the pokemon front and back sprites, also shiny. There is a button that says load all sprites something like that. You just load the sprite sheet you want, 4th gen or 5th, and there you go.

Hope it helps. If it didn't just message me privately and I'll help you

I didn't see anything about this in the tutorial section of ROM hacking.
How would you change a pokemon's typing in a ROM hack?
Also, I really want to make a hack with pokemon from generations 1-5 -- should I find a DS hack tool program or get a GBA hack tool program and add pokemon. Which would be easier? Also, it would be nice if someone could point me to a relatively-easy-to-use hack tool set, because I'm a beginner. Thanks!
(sorry if I sould annoying, but I really want to get familiar with a program before I even start the hack.)

My friend and I are making a ROM based of Emerald.
Is there a program that allows two people to work on the project at the same time? Like a sorta Google Drive for ROM hacking? Because that would make it more convenient for both of us.
Forever not knowing how to make a gif my profile picture and not knowing how people give themselves titles under their usernames....

The simple questions thread is closed so I wasn't sure where to go... I guess I'll just use the beginners lounge...? In Pokemon my a** he has seven starter pokemon to choose from, how do you have more than three options... Also (less important but I would still like an answe)r He has a separate mart where you can buy pokemon for $30,000. How do I do this?
Thanks!

Anyone know of a "checkweather" command? With having running shoes enabled everywhere, you can also use the bike anywhere at that point. Trying to incorporate a check inside of the bike item where it checks for this. Any help or suggestions would be great. If anyone wants the basis behind this, I'm developing a field move with Touched where a pokemon chooses a move such as "Ride" or something and it checks for the pokemon's species, level, HP, and a held item (probably a saddle). So with that any suggestions on a checkweather or anything else to help dismount the player off the bike inside would be great. I was thinking check for "In-house weather" and if yes then dismount the player. Thanks for any tips or help in advance~

The closest you can get to a checkweather command would be reading the 'default map weather' byte in the game's RAM. This post shows how you can store the byte to a variable in FireRed. Since you're using Emerald, here it is with the correct RAM addresses:

setvar 0x8004 0x0
copybyte 0x020375E0 0x0203732E
EDIT: This saves it to 0x8004, not 0x8000.

Can someone tell me how to change the starter Pokemon in FireRed via hex editing? I kept trying to find a tutorial for this but all I get are videos about A-Starter (Which doesn't work with MrDS' patch (Which I am using for this hack I'm currently working on)) or unrelated scripting tutorials.

Decompile the script using XSE and A map, replace the givepokemon and showpokepic with the one you want.

Also, is there any way I can get A-Map (Specificially 1.92) to work with hacks that have more than the standard number of types? (Specifically ROMs with the Fairy-type added (Added (Such as hacks that use MrDS's patch), and not hacks which use the Fairy-type as a replacement for "???")) Do I have to add support for an extended PokeDex in order to do this?

In fact, there is a really easy way for this. GoGo made it quite easy to expand what A-Map to include Pokemon from MrDS's ROM Base.

Follow the instructions at the link and there you go. Make sure you download THAT specific A-Map or it won't work.

It's not just for MrDS' ROM Base, it's for any amount of expanded pokemon. No matter the game. Just make sure to edit it correctly or you'll get errors.

Thanks for the A-Map. But anyways my hack has the default amount of Pokemon (412) and I don't plan to add any more past this. I actually believe it was the RomType name and the Fairy-type that caused my patched ROM to be displayed with errors. I did try to edit in the "MrDS" RomType into the ini file (Though via the lazy way of just copy/pasting the BPR thing and replacing BPR with MrDS (I even tried MrD and still came up with errors)) but it ended up nowhere. A No-Fairy Patched Rom with MrDS' patch (With nothing hex edited, with "BPRE" where "MrDS" is supposed to be added at) caused a rom with the patch to work. I'm not exactly sure what the bigger problem is here, though at this point it's best off that I just create another thread after this.

It's not the expanded amount of pokemon then. Also, advance map doesn't read pokemon types, just their names. So anything related to pokemon other than the names wouldn't cause amap an issue, and that's not even the case here. It must be something map-related.

Okay, turns out the problem lies in the A-Map you provided not recognizing "MrDS" as an actual RomType. Then again my maps were already edited via MEH, so that may be the problem I guess? But how do I get "MrDS" to be accepted by A-Map? (How do I add extra RomTypes into A-Map is basically what I'm saying)

It would require adding an instance of "MrD" to every ini, and that's not ideal now is it?
You can easily change MrDS in a hex editor back to BPRE, and when you're done just put it back.

Does anyone know a good trainer editor(edits the pokemon trainers have)? I've tried UTE, BattleEd, and whatever trainer editor G3T has, and they all have corrupted the ROM. Without fail. Does anyone know one that doesnt do this?
I've used A-Trainer since day 1.

Anyone here knows how to edit the multiplier in critical attacks? :3
In FR, the damage increase is handled by code around x1e5e4. If you're talking crit rates, then you'll want to look at the function at x1e408 (which does the rolling and checks involved), and the table at x250530 (which has the crit rates for each stage as half-words).

You guys should never use A-trainer.
1: old
2: buggy
3: incorrectly labeled
4: repointer corrupts all the time
5: Repointing the table itself will cause new trainers, but with a bugged ai. For example, random trainers with no items will use items like a master ball, which doesn't do anything.

Use Jambo51's unnamed trainer editor, as it's bugless (unless you mess with the ini incorrectly) and it's correctly labeled and updated as well.

Anyone knows how to edit the chance of shiny Pokémon appearance? For FireRed of course.
It definitely requires some asm hacking to change the PID read compares to something above 0-7. I'm not exactly sure where these compares are, but that's how it'd be done. If you could find those compares from someone or yourself, it'd be the way to do it :D

How would I go about redoing an emerald title scren after its already been edited once? I screwed up really bad on the first and would like to redo it. I tried following the normal way of doing it but the title screen image and raw file arent were they normally are.

Well when you first did it, you repointed the raw and tilesets. So it's not in the same old place, it's in the new ones you pointed to. Try to find them again by deleting the unlz files for your rom then reloading. It'll scan again and you'll be able to find all the stuff in your rom and you can get back to editing. Just make sure to keep track of your stuff and offsets next time, no matter what you're doing.
