Pokemon Rom Hack
« on: March 02, 2018, 02:35:49 am »
Hello guys, yesterday i started to translate a fire red rom to my native language...

1.I was wondering if there is any chance to combine fire red with another rom like ruby so the player can go to another region after beating the game or at some point. Sort of how PokeMMO works. An option would be to completely remake ruby , but that's too hard.. so maybe copying all the data into the first rom.. i don't really know.

2.Also i was wondering if there is any easy way to replace the classic pokemon tiles with the ones that look like you are in pokemon heart gold. (an example would be pokemon light platinum's tiles) without having to edit everything by yourself , sort of replacing the basic tiles teamplate with the one i want.

Thank you so much , if anything seems confusing I'm sorry , but I'm pretty new to this. :D

1. No.  One cannot simply combine any two ROMs, it's technically impossible to do this with the two mentioned games, even though they are of similar engines.  You will need to make everything from scratch, maps and all.  Oh, and since you're talking FireRed you will need to add the RTC, berries, etc..  You're looking at remaking the other game either way.

2. No.  Tiles are not my strong suit, but either way you have work ahead of you. People make tileset patches in a way that nukes the maps for a reason, the tiles won't fit (for an obvious reason, you're asking for pseudo-3D on a game made for only 2D and that's just not good in a game development sense).

You should probably be looking at PokeCommunity, it's where most go to look for information on these subjects.
