Touhoumon Another World v1.41 released

I DO NOT own any character or song in any way, every music, character design goes to their respective authors and games.
If you are reading this, means you have downloaded my Game. Don’t even claim the work is yours.

General Description

Hack of : Pokemon Fire Red (U) v1.0
Hack Name : Touhoumon Another World
Current Ver : 1.41

Best Emulator: Visual Boy Advance 1.7.2
Make sure you set this option before opening rom in Visual Boy Advance:
– Real Time Clock must be on (Option -> Emulator -> Real Time Clock)
– Save Type Flash 128kb (Option -> Emulator -> Save Type -> Flash 128kb)
If you don’t set save type to 128kb, it will be ended with message “1M-circuit board not installed” and you can’t save game.
If you want to use link feature. VisualBoyAdvance Link 1.7.3 is the best.

If you already played earlier version, you can still use that save game data.

This is most probably the final version from me (except if there is a fatal bug). In a short time, I will release developer version and detail about current rom.

      A lot of people made their own touhoumon hack…
      but the original japanese game is made by hemoglobinA1C

      for example

      Original Touhoumon 1.53 ported into english by LobsterHime
      Touhoumon Aqua+yui is made by Aqua
      Touhoumon Insane is made by drakuaza
      Touhoumon Scarlet Emerald is made by AnjiruSensei
      Touhoumon Mercury Lite is made by LightningRod
      Serial ATA attemps to make touhoumon J
      and also there are plenty unreleased touhoumon which are still in progress…

        There is a tool called XSE (eXtreme Script Editor)… for general scripting… you need a little knowledge about romhack if you want to use XSE…

    Hey, I’ve found some weird issue with porting from the NDS to VBA. The save files seem to have gained memory on the NDS, ie 129 kbs, but VBA only can manage 128 kbs. It’s not too much of an issue if you aren’t switching from emulator to NDS, but for trading between games, it makes it somewhat impossible. From my knowledge, I think I have to start over and I don’t think I can play on my NDS if I expect to trade between games…This is more of a flash issue than it is the ROM, but curious if you know a fix.

      I don’t understand about that very technical problem…

      I’m really sorry I can’t help you in this point….

    I have a question as well (If that’s okay, I mean….).

    I noticed the version of this hack, which is awesome by the way (World Link is also awesome.) 😀 , is 1.41. But here is the main question I have……Can this version trade with Touhoumon World Link v1.33? I’m only asking because I was curious.

    September 18, 2011 at 20:31

    • Aichiya Sanae

      Yes, you can…

    The unedited header version doesn’t work on my Android anymore.

    Are you sure it’s actually the unedited header version?

    September 18, 2011 at 22:45

    • Aichiya Sanae

      I’m sorry, just checked and actually I named and packed the wrong file…

      the files and links in v1.41 page have been updated…

      thanks for the information…

    September 19, 2011 at 05:25

    • Aichiya Sanae

      please re-download file, because I named and put the wrong file in zip file… (in case if you downloaded before Sept 18, 2011, 22.30 (+7 GMT)…

    Thanks, Sanae. 🙂 That’s really alot off my mind. 🙂

    Oh, if didn’t know from the name I’m using, really like the Earthbound series…..though Touhou is better though. 😀

    Hello I was wondering what else I need to do to find Last Word in Another World?

    I have LYuyuko, LKoishi(Only one I found in tall grass), LAya, LKanako, LSuwako, and LSuika.

    I remember seeing a list of things that need to be done before finding Last Word but don’t remember where I saw it.

    September 20, 2011 at 10:14

    • Touhoumon Lovers


      there a boneka list on the zip folder
      that help you too
      hope this help =P

      • Kage Shiroyuki

        I mean that they won’t appear. I already beat the Gensokyo League with the above 6 Last words. I’m trying to ask if there is anything I need to do after the league, or just keep looking for them?

        September 23, 2011 at 18:52

  8. Domino

    I started over World Link and have already beaten the Elite 4!

    Anyways though, I know this has been mentioned but breeding seems to be bugged from what I’ve experienced. LSuika + Tori have resulted in 3 ???????’s and 2 CReimu’s. This is with Another World 1.41 base version.

    September 21, 2011 at 02:54

    • Aichiya Sanae


      I just breed them and resulted CSuika… I used VBA 1.7.2…

      September 21, 2011 at 05:46

      • Domino

        Hmm, I just tried VBA 1.7.2 and to no avail other than the ?????? being gold instead of red. I usually use VBALink 1.8.0.

        Other information: both the Boneka are from my World Link save and the LSuika is male. Here’s the save of Another World 1.41 where I’m encountering the bug:
        I also have the latest batch of 5 eggs, all of which resulted in CReimu.

        September 21, 2011 at 11:33

      • Aichiya Sanae


        ughh… It’s resulted CReimu @_@

        I don’t really understand what exactly happened… and how to solve that…

        I’m really sorry…

        September 21, 2011 at 13:35

      • Domino

        I think I may have found where the memory is being allocated wrong.

        Basically, I switched out my LSuika (male) for my EMarisa (female) and it resulted in a CMarisa. I think what the code is doing is assuming the Tori is having the baby since the LSuika is male. Since the Tori doesn’t have an evolution chain, or really a possible egg, it defaults to some random memory address or CReimu as a default. Why CReimu and not CSanae? I think that has to do with how they are coded into the ROM, ie CReimu is at the top of the list in YAPE.

        The only unreasonable thing that could be drawn from that conclusion though is that Tori probably does have a possible egg, though how to reach it probably involves the Tori + Tori combo, which I could test. If that’s the case, then the code is assuming LSuika is having the baby, but, because males aren’t coded to have babies, it does something wonky and forces the random memory address or CReimu for the above reason. This I can only assume if the Tori + Tori combo results in an egg.

        Also, にほんごですか。 If what I said is confusing I can try translating it to Japanese, but I’m still learning so my Japanese isn’t that good.

    Loving the new stuff added from the previous version, as well as the Boneka List being added. My only issue is trying to find Dolls and CParsee since they never wanna show up. Does Dolls show up in the same patch of grass as LAlice or in the normal part of the forest? As for CParsee….so many battles and no encounter with her. Might just be bad luck though.

    September 21, 2011 at 03:54

    • Aichiya Sanae

      Dolls is in the grass area of Marisa’s House, meanwhile CParsee and Parsee are in the Yami Cave

      all of them are rare…

      September 21, 2011 at 05:38

      • AxelRyman

        Been meaning to mention this but thanks for Dolls hint. Still haven’t found them but I’ll keep looking. As for CParsee and Parsee, I’ll keep trying.

    By the way, the Bunbunmaru paper mentioned that the PC was a bit buggy.

    I would assume it means the items PC as well; I checked my items in the PC, and nearly all of them turned into ???????????? items.
    Well, it’s not that big of a deal.

    Hello there. I didn’t understand how to get Dark Eirin. can anyone help me? (don’t say me to look at the bonéka list because i didn’t understand the “interact” with Makai)

    September 21, 2011 at 06:50

  12. JetAurion

    There are some Triangle Blocks in Makai (the blocks look like the one that’s on Sevii Island 9 used to summon Deoxys). Talk to those.

  13. Exgiygas

    Hi again, Sanae. I’m not sure if this a problem with anyone else but if it is, please tell me. When you re-upped the unedited header version of Another World 1.41, I got it and tried to use it with my save, what happened was:

    1. It mentioned that the 1M-circuit board not installed (I was playing this on the psp gba emu, gPSP)
    2. My save from 1.40 never appeared.

    September 21, 2011 at 20:55

    • BiGnIcK_54g

      im playing another world 1.41 unedited header on my psp and it works fine maybe u didnt redownload the file or u need to start it up first in VBA then transfer it

      September 22, 2011 at 04:09

    • Domino

      Another issue could be that you switched from regular to unedited. The two don’t recognize the save the same, at least not on my NDS. Also, SRAM patching seems to cause issues with my NDS, but it sounds like you didn’t go that route.

      Also remember to change the name of your save to 1.41.

      September 23, 2011 at 03:24

  14. ExGigyas

    What I did was download the fixed version (That was the one that gave me the 1M error), but I used the GBATools program that Sanae recommended. After I did the SRAM patch on Another World 1.41, I get a message saying my save is corrupted.

    September 24, 2011 at 03:50

    • Domino

      Ah, you did SRAM patch, try regular and unedited version without SRAM patching.

      September 25, 2011 at 04:11

      • ExGiygas

        Umm, Domino…….When I got the Unedited Header Version, here were my results (The FIRST time I got it, I mean.):

        Without SRAM Patch – Got The 1M-circuit board not installed message and couldn’t save.
        With SRAM Patch – Saved the first yime without error. Second time & afterwards, gives me the save is corrupted message.

        September 25, 2011 at 06:38

      • Domino

        I had the exact same error/issue but when I used the base version, no unedited or SRAM patch, it worked without a hitch. I don’t understand SRAM, PRAM, and NOR enough to know exactly what’s going on, but for whatever reason the SRAM has trouble loading it’s own saves when the game is SRAM patched, at least on the DS.

        Now for the base and unedited header versions, they should both work on VBA. On my DS however, I received the M-1 Circuit Board error. That pops up when there’s an incorrect flash size, or more to the point, the save allocation is too small. The base version, no unedited header, works without any issues on both my DS, VBA, and no$gba for me.

        However, if you’re porting a save from the DS, the size will be off by a very small amount, roughly 4 bytes. Because of those 32 bits of data, neither VBA nor no$gba recognizes the save. VBA demands the saves be the 128k flash and as long as they are, saves will be recognized and usable. If they get changed and altering the size with the no$gba converter doesn’t work, then you have to start over or from a save that isn’t changed in size.

        But anyways, check your emulator settings and test out different configurations, particularly the base game and not the unedited header. If that doesn’t work, then I’m afraid I may be out of solutions.

    Thank you for working so hard and bringing us this great Touhoumon hack! It’s probably the best one out there.

    I was wondering if you could release a version where Boneka that require trading to evolve, could instead require some other method to evolve. Such as stones or other requirements, for people who play the game using other emulators for Android phones or Playstation Portables.

    September 25, 2011 at 01:55

  16. JetAurion

    You can easily edit evolutions using YAPE.

    September 26, 2011 at 00:53

    • Mush

      Thanks for pointing that out.

      I tried to do so, but for some reason, I can’t get Moon Stones and Sun Stones to come up for evolution, even though I see some Boneka that use those items. What gives?

      September 26, 2011 at 10:02

  17. ExGigyas

    Thanks to whoever told me to redownload Another World 1.41, it works without error now. Thanks. 😀

    quick question where do i go after i beat marisa in forest of magic? i went to the other town that was blocked off and theres nothing there really

    September 26, 2011 at 03:34

  19. BloodCri

    Thank you for this update Sanae. I’m having a blast. I only wish I could catch ZBoneka without turning to World Link but I guess it cant be helped. I will beat them both.

    One little gripe I have about the update though is, I know you wanted to make everything more alive, but it seems almost *too* green now. Its not a big issue I guess. Just an observation.

    I’ll tell you if I find any significant bugs. Thanks again.

    Hmm. How come I can’t get the vs seeker from rinnosuke anymore? I used to be able to get it right after I talk to him, but now Nitori don’t show up…

    September 30, 2011 at 12:42

  22. ExGiygas

    I got to Rinnosuke as well, but when I saw what I could buy (Just so you know, I have not beat Marisa and got the second Tome yet), any the stuff there is WAY to much money. 1000000 to be exact.

    October 1, 2011 at 00:39

      After I got back from beating Lt. Surge I checked with Kourin again. There was no Nitori event, but the Vs Seeker was available to buy… Huh, weird…
