Random Gold hack thread title

I'll start with introducing myself: I'm just another noob that is trying to enter the world of hacking. :D
My main goal is to (fully) understand how to work with hex editors and maybe create my own hack in the process as well.

Hack name: still got to think of one

Hack of: Gold

Finally thought of the storyline:

Storyline:

It's the same old Johto / Kanto regions, but it's slightly different this time. You will be Yagami Light - a 17 year old student, who's trying to change the world. In this world of Pokemon, Gym Leaders are world wide known criminals, but police don't have enough proof to get them in jail. So, you will have to take care of that. >:D That will be done by first beating them in gym battles, after that you will make them to reveal their real names and then... If you know the anime, then you've probably guessed who will be your rival - it'll be Lawliet Ryuzaki or simply L. He will try to chase you in different places so be ready for rival battles everywhere you go. :P

future (if possible) Features:

Here's what I want to "edit" in my hack:

~ Pokemon from newer generations
~ Kind of a special/physical split - there will be new types that will work as some of the old type opposite classification. Weaknesses/resistances will stay pretty much the same. Some examples: Grass - physical / Nature - special; Bird - physical / Flying (or Wind) - Special. Also, Fairy (P) / Light (S) will be in;
~ New attacks and modified current ones;
~ Edited text in lots of places;
~ New starters - Treecko / Chimchar / Squirtle;
~ Gym Leaders *disappear* after beating them;
~ Some events where you can get special Pokemon;
~ Some Pokemon will have type changes
~ New Hero / Rival sprites


Current features:

~ Starters are changed;
~ Sprites of Rival / Hero are changed.
~ Some text edited.

Tools I'm using:

1. Hex editor: Translhextion;
2. Agixp;
3. Paint.

And finally, here's my progress in learning the hex editing: 12% lol



Some final words: I know how hard it is, but I have lots of patience and most importantly -
lots of free time, so I guess I won't disappear from here that fast.. :D
Also, I'm still learning / reading tutorials etc., so I might not be updating this often for now. :P

Re: Random Gold hack thread title

Hiya,

It would have been probably a bit more appropriate to post a thread in Help/Question or General Discussion forum instead but not that you would have done anything wrong. Anyway, you'll find most of the answers you're looking for in this thread: http://hax.iimarck.us/topic/1696/

Also if you feel like checking out my video tutorials which teach these kind of things you're looking for help with, check those out too. They're linked to this Global FAQ and Resource thread along with other important stuff.

~ Is there any difference between Gold and Silver versions when hacking?

No, not really. Due to some of the coding being different between Gold (U) and Silver (U) versions, the data that is shared in the two games is sometimes a bit away in Silver from where it is located in Gold. But I've been personally hacking Silver and have had no problems with it although most documentation is "only" accurate for Gold.

Dude,Wellcome to the Skeetendo forum!
http://hax.iimarck.us/topic/816/

http://hax.iimarck.us/topic/18/

http://hax.iimarck.us/topic/427/

This is some very important skills to learn, and not so hard ones. Also a good start for learning Hex in my opinion. Check out Generation II section for more tutorials.

Note: I think threads like you've created this one, belongs to General Discussion section.

Since I'm kinda making a hack too I figured it'd be OK to post it here. I guess I will have to make up a name etc. to suit this section then.

The videos are awesome, will take time to see them all though (10+h :O)

Check out the source code of Pokemon Crystal. It can also be compiled into a new ROM.

Re: Random Gold hack thread title

I like the storyline of your hack, it looks a bit cool. I also don't understand so much about hex,asm,pointers,flags,etc.When i learn about that i will help you. (Do you accept) ?

I know that I say it to every hack, but custom music is a good thing to focus on.
