??? Type Arceus
« on: June 24, 2007, 09:11:24 am »
According to Bulbapedia it seems theres a new glitch in D/P other than Bad Egg and it's unnamed glitch.
Apparently there's a type ??? Arceus found in the coding I don't know if it's a glitch or not because Nintendo might release an event to make it that type. I wonder if we can find even more glitches by changing the value in the Arceus Type Variable

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

The issue with spirituality I feel is that people try to learn ideology, which while valid is not the whole picture and can lead to 'spiritual materialism' (masking), when a large component is that as children we're already our genuine selves or 'spiritual masters'.

That sounds fun. Lets do it.

All we need to do is just change the type variable... Now...How to do that...?

I don't do DS hacking, but no$gba has a memory viewer, correct? Catch an Arseus, search for the hex numbers of its attacks in order, and mess around with the other values around it in a memory viewer to see what happens until you get to the type.

That might work...

It's a placeholder, most likely. ??? is a possible type, and they want to make sure the game gracefully handles something such as changing Arceus' type to ???.

Isn't ??? a type anyway. It is the type of moves like curse and the type of eggs.

I'm not so sure ??? type Arceus was actually a glitch. Although it is not readily found in the game, I would have thought maybe they'd release a special plate for it.

Why make a seperate sprite just for a glitch?

So if a glitch happened the game wouldn't crash?

Edit:or it might of been a beta thing

Maybe there is a code which changes the pallette on certain items or effects. Maybe custom one could change the pallette to any colour

Most likely explanation would be an error handler. Since ? ? ? is in fact a possible type as Mist pointed out, the game use this sprite if the player did in fact manage to change Arseus into an ? ? ? type.

Yea, or maybe an error in the type reader can change it to ? ? ?, since it in fact is likely ? ? ?, or either it would probably just change to type ? ? ? when using a ? ? ? type attack, but that is less likely to be the changer.

Is Ancient Power still ??? type. (Should we disable the ??? smiley in the Admin Section? Change the code?)
Maybe It was the Default one, before they decided to have a Normal type one. We need someone who has seen this.

Yeah go ahead and disable it, that way we do not have to space, anyway, I think it was changed to rock, I think, I am not sure.
