This is not a theory, this is a hypothesis
Time to move on to the experiment. Hooray scientific method.
I am not very active on this forum. I only pop in from time to time.
One thing that just crossed my mind. Could you, theoretically, make it possible to select gender for the PC character, using ASM?
Sure you could. Enumerate the places you would have to change:
Wherever player’s frontpic is displayed (new game, player status screen)
Battles, where player’s backpic is displayed
Where overworld sprite is loaded
Really, those are the only places that behave differently as a girl in Crystal (except a few places like the pack that change palettes, and maybe a few others I missed). So change these spots to check against some unused memory location which you set as a male/female flag, and you’re done.
Well then thanks for the bit of info. Makes me wonder why no one has ever done something like this for Gen I. I mean KBM was able to do this for Gold for Prism, wonder why no one thought of doing the same for Gen I.
