Help Wanted!
« on: April 20, 2019, 03:20:21 pm »
Hey, I've never done any hacking before so I'm clueless on what I'm supposed to do. What I want to do is fix the wonky dialogue in the original Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games. I just need some help from people who know what they're doing to make this happen. I'd really appreciate some help. Thanks in advance! =)

I likely don't quality for the "people who know what they're doing" bit since I'm also in the learning process with my first project, but I can link some resources that could possibly be of help.

First off, I'd recommend checking out the Getting Started section if you haven't already: https://www.romhacking.net/start/

Also which PMD game are you talking about, specifically? I'm guessing Red/Blue since you mentioned original, but even with those two you're looking at two different platforms (GBA vs DS).

Red & Blue Rescue Team have some tools / documentation here that might be useful:

https://datacrystal.romhacking.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Mystery_Dungeon:_Blue_Rescue_Team

You might want to check out the projectpokemon.org forums/clubs too. I don't know of specific people you can ping off hand, but there are some threads regarding PMD romhacking in there if you search for them.

Lastly, I'm not sure what you mean by fixing wonky dialogue. Do you mean editing the script (similar to translation)? editing the font so that it fits better? etc.

Thanks so much! I was referring to Red And Blue Rescue Team. I meant that the grammar in the game is quite poor so I just wanted to make a version with an edited script that fixed these issues. Your input will definitely help me reach this goal!
