Fire Red Rival dialogue/encounters
« on: October 07, 2019, 08:58:39 am »
Hello all,
Does anyone know how to edit the dialogue with your rival in Pokemon Fire Red? I am unable to edit any text of any rival encounter with tools like Advance Map.
I have already changed his pokemon team lineup through advance trainer. The dilogue is one of the only things I have left to edit for my hack. Thanks much!

Open the game whit translhextion or any hex program.
On the program load this .tbl file

https://datacrystal.romhacking.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_FireRed_and_LeafGreen:TBL

Now you can read those hex bytes as words.

Make a search using that table and find the text you want to edit.

You can use the program tools like dump the script to a .txt file.

And edite it on notepad.

Later you can use the other tool as insert script.

Of course you have to learn how to use the program first.

This is helpful to make small changes.

If you want to edit the whole game is better if you program dedicated tools for it.

I think there's a better ways to do this but I find this the most easiest.

Thanks so much! I will definitely try this out. Might take some time to learn the program, but that's fine. I'm swapping Red and Blue in my hack, so I just want to change their dialogue to reflect that. Aside from the dialogue, I only have a few more sprites to tweak and it'll be good to go.
