So why does nobody use 4F for ACE?
« on: December 13, 2017, 03:35:00 pm »
Seems a lot less intrusive to use up your day-care slot than to carry a 5-mon party around. Sure, you'd have to use 8F to set up the 4F bootstrap, but it's only 4 bytes long and you pretty much never have to worry about accidentally destroying your bootstrap. Is there some other thing I don't know about that requires day-care data?

Good idea! :) You need to use the Day Care to stabilize a hybrid, but yeah I don't think anything else requires Day Care.

It's interesting that 4F (hex:59) executes the same address in both Red/Blue and Yellow (FA65 (equivalent to DA65)), so in Yellow it could be used as an alternative to ws m (hex:63) as well.
Hi! I identify as female.  She/her pronouns, please.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

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

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).

I've actually made a thread about 4F, right in this board. You can find it here: http://forums.glitchcity.info/index.php?topic=8056.0  ;D

And yeah, I think it's always a better shot and always recommend people to use this item instead, at least in yellow :)
