Attack animation hacking in Touhoumon 1.8
« on: April 16, 2013, 02:02:20 PM »
One interesting thing that I noticed in Touhoumon 1.8 is the custom move animation for some attacks.

For example, here, Fury Attack has been replaced by Knives:

Also, The World uses Kinesis's animation, but replaces the spoon with a watch:

The problem is, I would like to bring these moves to a hack of Touhoumon 1.5, but I have no idea how to do so. All that I've found is the knives have been added onto the rom, but I have no idea where the watch is. Would anyone have any pointers on how to hack move animations?

those were simple graphics replacements and not actual attack animation edits

in the case of knife moves, the graphic in the fury attack/horn attack slots was replaced with a group of knives

luna dial was a simple spoon > stopwatch replacement

they both had to have their palettes changed as well though


it's pretty simple to do, you just need to know how to use unLZ.GBA and understand what free space is
there's a few okay tutorials on pokecommunity but they may be dated
if a tutorial tells you to index your sprite don't worry about it because these are already indexed

anyway these are the images:



good luck

Thanks so much!

I do have unLZ.GBA, and I could find the knives, but I could not find the watch.

And would you happen to know if any other moves had animation changes?
