I have a very serious problem. Two weeks away from releasing Beta 1, I've discovered a bug that makes the game crash and blackout everytime I enter a battle (happens in both, wild and trainer battles).
¿What is making this?
I need to fix it soon, so if anyone knows how to fix it or could see the ROM to search for the bug, please help me.
Thanks and please, reply D:
I'm not sure what would be causing that. Do you have a recent backup that doesn't have the bug that you could do a comparison with to check for changes you don't recognize?
I am no longer active on this forum. I only pop in from time to time.
If you don't have a backup, you can start "forking" (this is what they call when doing in it mathematics while trying to find the x-intercept for a function for instance). Basically, you can use your hex editor's copy --> paste functions and copy --> paste whole rom banks to your edited version that has the bug in it (of course by making several backups of it first that you won't possibly lose the current version with the bug in it).
Keep doing this, first with for example packs of 10 rom banks (0x40000) bytes to see when you find the area, for example between 0x40000-0x80000 where the bug is, then check whether the bug is between 0x40000-0x60000 or 0x60000-0x80000 and so on.
Eventually (won't take that long to tell you the truth), you'll get pretty close to finding out where the corruption in code is and change it back to what it normally was.
Bank F ($3C000-$3FFFF) contains battle init.
Thanks, that should work, I'll try copy-pasting bank F as comet says and if it doesn't work, I'll try with the others. Thanks for giving such an easy solution, I'll reply soon to tell if it worked ;)
I can't find the bug!
I copied and pasted every bank and it didn't work...
Here is my ROM, please check it and help me :P
Also, when the guy at Route 1 asks you to learn catching Pokémon, say no because it's an incomplete script and continue until the next town, the pick a starter and try a wild battle. It will freeze and all the screen turns black except for some sprites.
Still needing help :(
I've just copied and pasted all pokémon related banks again from a clean ROM and it's still blacking out D:
¿Can anyone help me?
