Adding girl in Pokémon Gold

Well, I want to ask if someone knows how did Koolboyman add the girl into Pokémon Gold for his Prism hack. ¿Is there some tutorial or something?  If there is, i can't find it anywhere so I will thank any help provided.

Bye ^^

Unless you know ASM very well, I think you'd be better off hacking Crystal.

¿Is it so complicated? Because I think I won't change the rom only because I can't add the girl.

I think if you really need to add it you would have to ask Koolboyman himself. I'm not really a hacker so I can't help you out much.

Re: Adding girl in Pokémon Gold

Start thinking it's not complicated. That's the hardest part of the task, in my opinion. Learn ASM, which is not difficult as you might think; give a look at how Gold's intro coding works, and then compare it to Christal's. If you search around in these forums I'm pretty sure you'll find some already existing documentation about GSC intro stuff too.

Re: Adding girl in Pokémon Gold

I know more or less how ASM works, so I'll look Crystal's intro's ASM codes and compare to Gold's. The only thing i wasn't sure about is that if it would work if I only do that. If I get into some kind of trouble I'll post here, so don't close this thread. If someone wants to add something different I'll appreciate it.
Thanks ^^

Re: Adding girl in Pokémon Gold

Well, it will involve a lot of coding, but it is quite possible to add a female character. We did something similar for our German Pokémon Silver Hack Silverstar. The player could change to transparent and everything by modifying the sprite loading code depending on some flag.

Re: Adding girl in Pokémon Gold

So, Tauwasser, you are saying that for adding the girl I need to modify more codes apart from the intro and the ones that point the intro, arent you? Well I don't need to add the possibility of changing from one sprite into another after the intro like you did with your disappearing sprite, so doesn't that mean that the things i have to modify are simpler than yours? Also, you don't have to do this but, could you please help me with this by investigating or something? (only if you have spare time and you want to help me). I'd give you credits.
Thanks ;)

Re: Adding girl in Pokémon Gold

No, you have to disambiguate between boy and girl sprites whenever the hero sprite is loaded.

Re: Adding girl in Pokémon Gold

Oh, I see, so it's harder than I imagined, but I think I will manage to make it.
Also, can anyone reply to my other doubt? I'm doing my best and I'm starting to catch up how it is, but I still need help.
Thanks ^^
