Get Started On Hacking!

Post  HitoshirezuJamal on Wed Feb 16, 2011 4:29 am

This is a thread that list resources that are used for Pokemon ROM hacking. Newcomers and veterans alike will find this thread useful (Veterans, if they need to redownload some for whatever reason).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You'll obviously need an emulator, if you want to hack. The recommended emulator to use is Visual Boy Advance, which comes with a recording feature. Visual Boy Advance is necessary for any upcoming hacker.

Download Visual Boy Advance here:

http://emulator-zone.com/doc.php/gba/vboyadvance.html

---------------------------------------------------------

Advanced Map is one of the most important tools for hacking. It allows you to edit existing maps, and even create new ones.

Advance Text is another useful tool. It allows you to edit existing text.

Overworld Editor is another required tool. It allows you to edit existing sprites, and even change one entirely.

unlz.GBA is another useful tool. It allows you edit battle sprites for trainers and Pokemon.

Download Advanced Map, Advance Text, Overworld Editor, and unlz.GBA here:

http://wahackpokemon.com/en/download/tools-gba

------------------------------------------------------

Advance Trainer (or A-Trainer) is a tool that allows you to edit any existing Trainers' Pokemon, including normal Trainers, Gym Leaders, villains, the Elite Four, and the Champion. Use this while you're not yet comfortable in animating Pokemon battles.

Download A-Trainer here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?o0519fgacdclra3

------------------------------------------------

Obviously, you'll need ROMs if you wish to hack. I will take requests to post download links for hacked ROMs, but as of now, I will post links to the two basic ROMs used for hacking:

Pokemon Ruby: http://www.coolrom.com/roms/gba/14592/Pokemon_Ruby.php

Pokemon FireRed: http://www.doperoms.com/roms/gameboy_advance_gba/Pokemon%20-%20Fire%20Red%20-%20GBA.zip.html

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If there are any tools that I can add, please post about it.

I would recommend A-Trainer, rather than PET. PET is way too complicated. And, yeah what Kris said would be good too.

Thank you for the suggestions, guys. Updated with unlz.GBA, A-Trainer (PET is too complicated, as Dako said), and a few ROMs.

If you guys want any particular hacked ROMs (or patches), please post about them. Very Happy

There is a good working Ruby ROM in the OP. It works fine for me, but if this is the ROM you downloaded, I'm not sure what the problem is.

Seeing this made me realize I never finished my NSE tut.

How does that tie in, you ask? Boi, add NSE to the list of tools!

I have been looking for a while and haven't been able to find a good Pokemon Light Platinum ROM. Does anyone have the download link for it? I would look harder, but I don't want to kill my computer with a virus XD.

I got a ton of tools (pretty much all the ones listed so far and extras that sounded necessary) from a certain website- not Whack-a-hack- and all of my ROMs from another. I haven't tested them all, but I do know two of the DS ones I've played with work. I just can't figure out how to set my VBA to use GBC games...


Anyway, a helpful tool might be Overworld Editor: Rebirth Edition. and Advanced Starter.

Hey Dragon, i don't think you need to set it, but if you do, go under options and go to gameboy.

I'm pretty sure it's already set like that. Either it's just being really slow (I'm using a Netbook) like Desume (the only DS Emulator I could find that records) or I just need to set it differently.

Ahh. That's an easy fix. Just copy that, paste it into Google, and a download link for it should come up.

You're welcome!

Also, try to get the component into the same folder as your A-Text stuff. That should help out as well.
