Multi Region Hack?

Looking at pokemon prism. having nijon, rejion, and part of tunod, would it be possible in a hack to have kanto/johto then a boat to take you to like DEVAMPED hoenn/sinnoh? with scripted events and a postgame story?

Re: Multi Region Hack?

Well, there's many things to take in to account, for example there are ways to free up Rom space or even expand the Rom. Then there's ram, banks, flags, extra pokemon data, how many events, extra tiles, so much that could stop you in your tracks but short answer yes. I've never seen a hack with with extra town maps (unless prism has a third, stopped playing after a game breaking bug) so I'm unsure how much effort that would take.

I don't really see anyone doing it but it's theoretically possible. Gen III is actually ridiculously easy to achieve this in even without a disassembly.

Quick edit: I did actually attempt this eons ago in gold, before the Crystal disassembly, got a few maps added but got stumped at getting to the maps and adding wild mon data (which I imagine is much simpler now with the disassembly).

The saddest thing is there's no such thing as an ex addict. Either you're fighting addiction or you're not and if you start fighting you never stop. That's the nature of the monster.

Re: Multi Region Hack?

You definitely could, provided you found space for it like bloodless said. Any reason it hasn't already been done is just due to the effort of making an entire region.

if anyone would want to attempt this i could help map (with the given tilesets and crowdmap stuff/ figuring out how to add a new map and connections without breaking the game.)
i could make some mockups (if i had tilesets i could make better ones) and post some? that would be kinda cool. contributing to someones hack would also be nice haha
