Re: help with tools

Your going to need a Hex Editor and a table file as not many tools are out for Pokemon Crystal. Although, you could ask Miksy since he makes only Crystal hacks.

If you can't find a table file, I have one for Crystal English Version.

(Also, I'm not sure this is the correct section but I don't see a help section so...)

Re: help with tools

Go and check that CrystalText I made.
You can use it to edit town names.

However I've no idea where to look for names of trainers so it doesn't have that feature.
You can change names of attacks and pokemon by using hex editor and crystal table file.

You cant look it up in a text editor. You're going to have to manually download a hex editor (I prefer Hexpose) and press F6 to search text. For example search Violet City and it will come up with the town name and you can change it to whatever.

Not all hexadecimal editors allow you to just jump straight into text editing. You need a table file to be loaded. The hex editor I use (which has a wider range of tools and easier navigation) requires you to manually choose a table file.

I haven't researched much about table files except that I know what they do, they change the characters in the text column to the Hexadecimal equivalent of that game.

I haven't researched much about table files except that I know what they do, they change the characters in the text column to the Hexadecimal equivalent of that game.

A table file is a simple format: just a text file that looks like this:
80=A
81=B
82=C
...
and so forth. This works because in most Game Boy games a character is represented by one byte, and consistently the same byte.

Some hex editors allow table files where a byte represents more than one character:
54=POKé

Hex editors typically use the ASCII character encoding by default. This is the same encoding used by your text files (from, say, Notepad), and some games like Link's Awakening. Here is a table of ASCII characters:

00 nul   01 soh   02 stx   03 etx   04 eot   05 enq   06 ack   07 bel
     08 bs    09 ht    0a nl    0b vt    0c np    0d cr    0e so    0f si

I don't like Translhextion because it misbehaves with large files. I personally use Windhex on Windows.

Re: help with tools

Yeah, I had a lot of problems with Translhextion. I edited the music, and only the music with that program but for some reason when you pick a starter pokemon it returns unknown opcode.

Re: help with tools

Translhextion is often strange. I've never had it do anything odd when purely hex editing, but with table files. It will load the table, but behave strangely when trying to edit text with it.

Please , it would been much better if you have made a new topic. and that's a kind of hard thing to do, so you want to change pokemon types?
