question for all gen 1 pokemon hackers
« on: July 05, 2018, 11:18:18 am »
I just want to make one simple change to a pokemon blue ROM -- the starting location of the player. My guess is that there are perhaps three addresses I would need to change: whatever map index and x/y location the game reads to place the player initially.

By any chance, is it already known which addresses these are? I have looked on things like the ROM Map but my only hints there were maybe the Fly/Warp points; I didn't see anything like "new game variables".

If these addresses aren't commonly known, I'll settle for any tips anyone has on a method for locating them. I was going to start by setting a breakpoint on player name entry if I could and trying to step forward from there.

It may be worth your time to dive through the Pokemon Red & Blue disassembly:

You might find what you're looking for in either the data or constants folder.
