Yup, that is how things works. When you try to do/understand many thing at the same time (short period), the feeling of overwhelming will come, frustration will start and raise constantly to a point where you must take a decision to stop or burn out. Somehow every humans tend to slide in that cursed loop, regardless is it for work, games, hacks, ....Yep. This is probably going to take me a long time to learn, but for now I am going to go through the resources on gb-dev and study the source codes for other existing GB hacks. It might take me a long time to fully grasp, but I promise I'll be back eventually! Should I post here if I need any help, or should I head on over into programming for that?
Anyway, lets focus on hacking.Positively! The asm instructions are like the alphabet of a spoken language. Only after you learn the alphabet you will learn to 'read'. Regardless how complicated a code is, it can be divided to a smaller pieces that convey standalone meaning. When you start with few instructions and combine them in what the task is, you will learn not just to read individual 'letters' but consequence of letters as a 'word', later on combing 'words' as a 'sentences' and so on. Same goes with the 'writing'.
But don't fool yourself, this doesn't happen in a moment, just by reading a reference doc. It require work, work and more work
And with the risk to repeat myself, that's why a good tutorial is a crucial for your growth. A good one will 'shoot you high in the sky'. A bad one will just add more frustrations.
