I have some good news, and some… Super Good news.
Good news is, I’ve come up with some new texture hacks, specifically Item hacking. I don’t know why, but I prefer to make custom textures for items than anything else. I’ve been playing Pokemon Card BG2 – The sequel to the Pokemon Trading Card game for Game Boy Color, and it inspired me to make the following. The Firefox, however, was a random idea. …or maybe its because I’m quite annoyed with Firefox for crashing on WordPress from time to time… Whatever the circumstance may be, the figment of my imagination is now tangible, and can now be dealt with accordingly… with a brawl!
I’ll have most of the energy card Smashies done soon. I’m not very familiar with all the new energy cards, so if i miss a couple when I release all of them, let me know which ones. I’m more of a fan of the old Pokemon TCG.
And for the super good news:
There is a new app on Smashboards that I found VERY useful for editing Item PAC files. Well, its a month old actually, and its been quickly progressing. Its the “Smashbox Data Viewer”. I recommend you get a head start with the app if you don’t already use it. I will be making another guide on how to easily edit a common3.pac file with Smashbox. This thing will really revolutionizes the way you customize your Item’s file. My method with custom item textures from now on will be to just provide and edited image file in PNG format. With Smashbox, you can just open up the common3.pac, look for the directory of the item you are trying to edit (ex: Smash Ball), replace the image/texture files with the ones I provide, save the PAC file, and just place the edited PAC in the SD. So yeah, I came up with this idea when I first explored using Smashbox. No more having item files packed for you! Soon everyone [mostly] will be able to use different custom items without the hassle of hexing or using the CMD.
