PPRE: Project Pokemon's ROM Editor

625 posts in this topic

Why is it that whenever I try to write ROM it just doesn't? And whenever it does write, it doesn't open in the emulator.

Trainer does NOT gives EV's. For edit ev's, you must edit ev's gived by single pokèmon via hex i think. Sorry for my english, but 3 months without studing this language went bad for me ^^"

This is a very interesting program. Is it possible to edit/add pokemon abilities as well? For example, to make the ability Illuminate to have an effect during battle like stench, or to make a speed boost ability in the sun for fire type pokemon.

To Do This Would Be a Whole Different Ball Game You Would Need to edit the abilities Which is in another place

Well, there already is an ability to boost speed in the sun. It's called "Chlorophyll". Just give it to a fire type Pokémon.

By any chance, do you know why the ROM refuses to open in the emulator after editing has been done? It is one of the many issues that I have. Also, after writing ROM once it doesn't write again when I try to do some more editing. But my huge problem is really the fact that the ROM doesn't open in the emulator. I mean, it opens enough to press the Play or Pause button but it just remains white screened from there.

Never mind. I have it under control.

I'm having another problem. Only the Map part is working, when I click on anything else then it doesn't come on. Any ideas why?

I just had an odd bug happen to me. I modified the text strings for map "Sandjem Town R1 01" and put my own text in as follows:

text_0="Oh, \v0103\z0000, is it?\nI've been expecting you."
text_1="My name is Prof. Birch. I am a\nPokémon researcher.\rI saw that you moved here yesterday.\rI was compelled to give you a Pokémon,\nseeing as your dad is a gym leader.\rEver since the arrival of \v0103\z0001,\nI've been wanting to see if I can\rfind her someone to visit."
text_2="Now, let me ask you.\rWould you like to become friends\nwith Pokémon?"
text_3="Well, that's what I didn't want to hear.\nLet me ask again.\rWould you like to become friends\nwith Pokémon?"
text_4="Splendid! That's what I want to hear!"
text_5="I have three Pokémon here, Torchic,\nTreeko and Mudkip.\rI want you to have all three."
text_6="\v0103\z0000 recieved the three\nPokémon!"
text_7="Now that you have some Pokémon,\nwhy not ask \v0103\z0001 for a battle?\rI'm sure she'd have fun."

I hit the save button many times as it doesn't like to save, and when I reloaded the text, I had this:

text_0="Oh, \v0103\z0000, is it?\nI’ve been expecting you."
text_1="My name is Prof. Birch. I am a\nPokémon researcher.\rI saw that you moved here yesterday.\rI was compelled to give you a Pokémon,\nseeing as your dad is a gym leader.\rEver since the arrival of \v0103\z0001,\nI’ve been wanting to see if I can\rfind her someone to visit."

text_51="Yes, that’s correct.\rProfessor Rowan has been studying\nPokédex systems with Professor Oak.\rProfessor Oak is Professor Rowan’s\njunior in terms of seniority."

There's times when it won't even do that, but I thought I'd mention it and make PPRE as bug-free as possible.

This problem happened to me at first too. When you run 'thenewpoketext.exe', you have to wait for it to display a list of options to indicate that it's done extracting. It actually takes a decent while.

:frown::frown::frown::frown: :(

You have to use 'thenewpoketext.exe' to convert the rom into an editable file before you can do anything.

Now, for a question of my own- how exactly are the TMs ordered? I'm guessing the final row on the far side is HMs, but I can't figure out the others. Also, is it possible to make it so the editor recognizes Cherrim's different apperances as different forms?

I am very sorry if this has been asked before, it's kind of hard to keep up with 38 pages :P

Anyways I am trying to edit when my Pokemon evolve in Heart Gold but when I change from Trade to Level I don't get the option to choose a level as a number. It is still grayed out. Does it not work? S: I am fine with making them level with Happiness instead but it would be nice to know this first.

If I recall correctly set it to level, close it, and re-open it. It is possible to change it to level (see my hacks for proof) I just am not fully sure how I did it anymore but try that and let me know...

I'm still having saving issues. It won't save at all. Not text strings, not scripts, not movements. And I can't keep working unless I incorporate these scripts.

thanks guy, tools is very cool. but i have a question, can u help me? in the game pkm, we used to play game turn-based strategy, but we can play a batlle of pokemon which same as a fighting game, a pkm can have the advantages from terrain ( a rock-pkm can easy play in the moutain, a grass pkm can more healthy when battle is in the rain,.. exemple), and two pkms have two actions in the same time? So, the game pkm is very big ( 1 GB, 2 Gb,..) ? what do u think about my question?

Thanks for read may question!!!

There is no way you're ever going to be able to do that by editing a pokemon game. To make a game like that, you'd have to program it from scratch. Not saying it would be impossible, as I know other people have done very similar things, but you won't be able to do it by using this.

If a Map Editor for the fourth generation games is released, then it should be quite possible to edit a nds game to mimic Fire Red. The issue, of course, is that no one has managed to make a map editor yet, though many people are trying their hardest.

My game freezes after I try to leave the Goldenrod City Gym. I beat Whitney but that game freezes as I try to leave to trigger the girl that tells me that she cries after a loss. I can't use the gibberish and wild Pokemon trick because there are no wild Pokemon in Goldenrod. Any help?
