Advice? @Current ROMhackers
« on: December 03, 2017, 09:40:07 pm »
Hey, I was wondering: Where did you learn to ROMhack? And, furthermore, what resources do you think are a good place to start learning? I'm a little interested in this hobby.

(Also, I'm sorry that I haven't been active in so freaking long.)
I like shorts, they're comfy and easy to wear!

If you're looking for information on Generation I and II, I highly recommend Skeetendo. They are a forum full of experts on Pokémon Game Boy hacking:

https://hax.iimarckus.org/

It's also useful (especially for Generations I and II) to have a hex editor. I like to use HxD, which is free software.

There are also many tools designed to help you with hacking the Pokémon games. I'm unsure where you can find them but there are links on the Skeetendo forum, DataCrystal and Zophar's Domain (if I recall correctly).

GB-PC (a pointer calculator) is also useful.

Hope that helps and let me know if you have any questions! :)

Hi! I identify as female.  She/her pronouns, please.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪





Thank you Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

If you like, please contact me by private message here on the forums as I no longer check other places very often.

Give love, receive love, repeat. But in order to love others you must first love yourself unconditionally, even if it means abandoning pressure from projects or taking time off work and empathise with the self as you are your own best friend. The key often is simply to follow your heart, your urges and have faith they are valid; use them to do what you want to do as long as it doesn't harm anyone, and/or sympathise and respect it as we all have bad days (even the prettiest rose has thorns but is still beautiful).
