my ideal tool

hope our tool makers can do this ultimate tool.

It can unpack/breakdown the contents of the ROM acording to their offsets. The unpacked files may contain pokemon battle sprites,OWs,trainer sprites, maps,tiles, etc and non-graphic related like scripts,commands,etc, so its easy to edit and insert sprites and maps in a unmoddded rom,or it has an automatic repointing feature.. And then after editing, repack the files again by that tool,hola,you made your hack! Hahaha

Re: my ideal tool

This is my ideal tool as well. The hard part is writing it. (It is not actually that hard, though; it just takes time to catalog everything first.) The holy grail would be a complete disassembly.

Re: my ideal tool

Basically what it would come down to is a tool like RPGMaker, except for Pokemon roms. You'd pretty much start a new blank project, and then add in your maps, items, pokemon, trainers all that and then when you were ready compile it and play it. This is also what I think the ideal tool would end up being. The trick is like IImarckus said getting a complete disassembly, so we know how everything works and where everything is. Basically as it is right now, we are like Pokemon professors when you think about it. To some people, Pokemon hacks are just games. Others use them for battling/trading. Us? We study the hacks like a profession. But we don't know everything yet. There are still many mysteries left to be solved. That's why we hack Pokemon every day.

Re: my ideal tool

I personally dislike tools as you're using someone else's hardwork to create a hack. You're not even doing it yourself.

It may sound nitpicking, but you're actually using someone else's work when you get information on data structure from documentations and ROM Map too. It has already been said, a smart and good tool is a positive provision, if it helps you (provided that it doesn't prevent the user from understanding how things work internally)

Hacking on a phone must be un-handy as hell, do you use T9, or you have a full keyboard on your phone?
Anyway, I hope not to offend you, but could you please try to type words properly (full lowercase, l33t-speak and lack of punctuation makes it hard to read post, at least for me). Thanks.

Re: my ideal tool

Oh,i'm sorry men,sorry if I have a wrong grammar. I'm not that good in english,haha. Of course that will not offend me. By the way, I use an old nokia 6600, and I can say,for me,its a convenient one to use. I just finished a minor hack of pokemon crystal using this phone.

Re: my ideal tool

I have to say, you are the first person I have ever heard of that hacks using a phone instead of a computer running windows, linux, or mac osx.

Re: my ideal tool

Using only a hex editor on a phone to hack must be a pain. You are great.

Re: my ideal tool

I don't think I got it yet but I'll check it again. Also, I just still fail to see how it is in any way practical to hack using a phone when you have a computer. But hey man whatever works for you I guess. I also feel like the fact that this is the first time most of us have ever even heard of doing it on a phone might limit our ability to help you with certain things as we will be unfamiliar with the tools you have to use. Not telling you to stop or anything, just warning you that we might not always be able to help if you run into problems with anything doing it this way, but we will still do our best.

Re: my ideal tool

thats ok. I will ask for the help that I think you can answer, by the way, my tool has search for an offset, search for utf-8,big endian,little endian,and hexadecimal code. But i'm not familiar with the first three. Thank you.

and also I don't have my own computer.hehe xD
