Please forgive me if this is a very "newbish" question but will these current game shark codes for the Gold and Silver only work with the Japanese versions or does anyone know if they will they have to be rediscovered for the English version? Just curious thanx

It will almost certainly go like this:

In modifying the game, the addresses will have to change (the game gets recompiled). While it is technically possible that all the additions are added to a section of RAM that is past the current area, it is unlikely. It is far more likely that there will be a "conversion factor" that must be done, and a hex value will have to be added to the address (similar to yellow).

Don't worry about it: soon after the release, I'm sure some people will have converted all the codes. If they don't, I'll get on it

Basically no, but rediscovery won't be hard at all, unless Capital N really tries to screw with us.

I found some codes to fight any pokemon. The hex is soooo easy now! Hehe.

But I got to wondering... with Serebi at FB, Nintendo is running out of hex space to create more pokemon. The only logical thing I could think of is that they will have to create a separate "subdirectory, ex. D1C3, D1C4" for the new Pokemon. That would get really confusing for both the programmers and us sharkers.

I don't know too much though. Is it possible to create triple hex codes? ex. FB4, 48D, etc. That would REALLY screw over the GameShark.

Well, for Yellow jap, it used R/B codes.
ie 01xxD8CF

Then they were lowered as such.
ie 01xxD7CF

So, this should work. But anyway, we had codes for jap G/S about 2 weeks after release. hehe

If and when they want more monsters, they'll just make the designator 16 bit instead of 8 bit. It'll probably be on the GBA, as well. It won't be more confusing for programmers: their code will still look like:

move RegA,MEWVAL

or something...

It won't really be that bad for us, either.

Here's to 65536 pokémon at some unspecified time in the future

Thanx everyone! That's more information than I asked for and although this might sound silly I find all this fascinating! LOL Before I got a gameshark I didn't know a THING about game programming! I still don't know very much, but much more than I used to! LOL
