PLEASE READ THIS (http://pkmncommunity.com/showpost.php?p=2695623&postcount=88) FOR AN EASY: PUT SPRITE ON TITLESCREEN TUTORIAL

1. FOREWORD
This is a TitleScreen Editing tutorial for Pokémon Fire Red.
The pictures in this tutorial are made by Pako Master aka *Neos*, who originaly made a tutorial on this subject..
I didn't translated his tutorial.. but he get full credit !

2. WHAT YOU NEED
- A Pokémon Fire Red ROM
- Emulator
- UnLZ-GBA
- APE
- MS Paint (or any other picture editor)

3. LET US BEGIN [Sorry, only FireRed Editing for now]
- Open UnLZ-GBA and load your Fire Red ROM
- Now, we need to find Charizard.. As you can see in this (http://img375.imageshack.us/img375/6118/45787308jo9.png) screenshot, it's at 2011. (This CAN change per dump)
- On the same screenshot you see you need to use 16 Color Mode + For an easy to use pallete (Black-White) use pallete 1488
- Push the SaveAs (http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/6760/saveasnv5.png)-Button and save the Charizard picure anywhere you want.
- Open the Charizard in Paint (http://img359.imageshack.us/img359/5205/26860829fl3.png).
- I think you allready saw that the Charizard looks wierd.. well, that's because it's a TileMap ;)
To edit the Charizard properly you need to put the TileMap in the right order (http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/9623/23177778si1.png)
- Now, choose a Pokémon Sprite which you wan't to put on the TitleScreen.. In this example, Pako Master used a Kingdra (http://img250.imageshack.us/img250/8104/34729790xk7.png).
- As you see.. you need to make a -let us call it a- PalleteBar from the Charizard and Kingdra..
- Now, recolor the Kingdra (http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/2413/96223853cu2.png) in all those grey colors.. (Don't use the darkest/black colors.. pallete editing can be a pain if you do)
- Clear the Charizard (http://img250.imageshack.us/img250/5428/30194693yv8.png) from the ordered TileMap..
- Put the Kingdra on it (http://img250.imageshack.us/img250/6232/67834582ou1.png) but keep in mind how Charizard was ordered !
- Ok, now you need to re-order the TileMap (http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/7572/67789059ub6.png) to its original state.. (How we saved the Charizard)
- Save (http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/1493/16686123ku1.png) the picture in its original size.. (So without the space and other stuff..)

4. PUT IT BACK IN
- Ok, so you're done editing.. now go back to UnLZ-GBA and push the Import (http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/5641/importhm4.png)-Button.
- Select your new TileMap and hit 'OK'.
- In the PopUp window (http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/766/popupvl1.png) use these settings. (» those are the auto-settings)
- Ok, now just save it to your ROM and your DONE..

5. CHECK YOUR WORK
- Open up your Emulator and open your ROM..
- w00t ! There's a Kingdra on the TitleScreen ! [Picture (http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/2716/11al1.png)]
...
- After PalleteEditing it wil look like this (http://img359.imageshack.us/img359/3426/12df2.png) !

Umm... Some help for desperate LG hackers (like me):

LG tilemap arrangement - I think it'll help you. It cannot be sized as Charizard in unLZ so the size of "tile" is 8x24 px. So make the Venusaur look weird by "-" button and you'll see row. Second smallest, I think. Clear the tilemap, put correctly your POKéMON, arrange the tilemap back and continue with this tutorial... D-Trogh, I hope it helps you and saves some time ;)

geez i tried doing this for like an hour strait trying to put a lapras on it god its tricky cant do it :( gonna try again l8er

March 21st, 2007, 02:24 AM
Thanks man this really helps, do you also know what are the offsets to the tile screens pallete?

Martin Yiu
March 21st, 2007, 06:11 AM
Umm... It was offtopic. Try the Help request thread in Team Discussions. Now, to pallettes. Try to search for it in hex editor. Look at the tut and it'll be easier.

D-Trogh
March 21st, 2007, 09:02 AM
Yeah, for the palletes you can use your VBA and Hex-Editor.. Look for the pallete in VBA (Pallete Viewer) and search for the colors in your Hex-Editor..

Then you can look for the offset

-Sasuke-
March 21st, 2007, 11:13 AM
Tried but have faild. Can some1 tell me what the offset is?

Djengo
March 21st, 2007, 01:19 PM
so would a program such as hex workshop 4.2 be good enough to find the values and then edit them in?

1. FOREWORD
Ok, all the screens used in this tutorial are made by micky from the WAH-forum.
This 'tutorial' will be SHORT..

2. WHAT YOU NEED
See the first post ^^
But now we'll use a Leaf Green ROM

3. LET US BEGIN
Ok, so this will be short ^^
- Open UnLZ-GBA and open your LG ROM..
- Goto 2012 and use pallete 1488
- Now, push the + sign till you get this (http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/4689/dibujo10kq1.png).
- Push Save As and open your saved picture in Paint because you need to arange (http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/6264/dibujosj7.png) your tilemap. (Picture is resized)
- This (http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/8805/dibujo1ho8.png) is how it needs to be.. (Picture is resized)
- Ok, like te Charizard we'll fill this with black, so it looks like this (http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/9004/3vz4.png).
- So.. we have the black aranged tilemap.. now you can put in the picture you want. In this (http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/7940/dibujo4ap1.png) example it's a Ho-Oh !
- Alright, the Pokémon is on it, with the grey colors.. so now we need to rearange the tilemap again. So like this (http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/9568/dibujo5lm6.png).
- Naturally you need to delete the white space.. This means you need to save it like this (http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/6105/dibujo6pt5.png)

4. PUT IT BACK IN
- Ok, so this (http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/6105/dibujo6pt5.png) is what you save.. Import that in UnLZ-GBA

5. CHECK YOUR WORK
- Open up your VBA and check your work !
- After some pallete editing iy can look like this (http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/9484/dibujo8uj0.png) or this (http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/323/dibujo9xq3.png).

I hope this can help..

How do you get the color pallet? I don't have that on my Paint!

Hyunbin
March 26th, 2007, 02:27 PM
you have to do that yourself

question..
you said that the number for char/venu changes per dump
what does that mean.. "per dump"?
because i think that happened to me
i'm hacking leafgreen, and first it was in 2011
but now i can't find it @_@

D-Trogh
March 27th, 2007, 08:06 AM
Well see.. the ROMs you download where dumped by other people.. so you can call it dumps.. I don't know much about it, but maybe those dumping tools 'dump' on an other way and.. meh XD
When you can't find it, just look around ^^

Pearlone
March 27th, 2007, 02:16 PM
Cool man that ROX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Hyunbin
March 27th, 2007, 06:42 PM
thinking about it.. i think dump means to load the images o_O
i copied the gba file to another directory and opened that one, and the venusaur was back in 2011 o_o
weird lol

oh and thanks for the tutorial
i'm almost done editing the title screen
do u know how to change the actual title from "leafgreen"/"firered" to something else?
i can find it couple with the POKéMON logo in 2010, but the palette is really weird

umm..ok I have a problem..I have my intro picture thing..I import it...and I click on write to rom...then it says "compressed size is 1F18. Which is too big. Aborting"

?

D-Trogh
March 31st, 2007, 04:39 AM
Well.. that means your picture is too big ^^
UnLZ-GBA auto-aborts because a picture wich is too large can f*ck up your ROM.
But.. when you want, you can un-check the checkbox for auto-aborting..

dgfragile
March 31st, 2007, 03:18 PM
Ok I unchecked that auto-abort thing...and click write to rom but it still doesn't work ? It still shows the original intro on the game.

Um, my ROM, in UnLZ, doesn't have the Charizard..
Also, when I save something, the pallete gets all warped.

I don't know I would be allowed to help, but, Unown Trainer, it looks as if you saved your image as a .jpg, from my experience, saving as a .png gives better unLZ compatability.

I have a problem with my title screen and I didn't even mess with it..

It's because you used different shades than the original black and white Charizard. If you use shades that are different, even slightly, then you'll get a piture like that, with splotches of bright pink and other un-wanted colors.

It's a pain, I know.

Can anyone tell me how to pallete edit the title screen cause i tried but had know idea what to, i even used palette viewer but no luck thanks

Again, I'm not sure if I should be posting help here, but here is how you can edit Palettes:

WHAT'S NEEDED
1: Fire Red/Leaf Green rom, I will be using Fire Red in the tutorial
2: A good Hex Editor, I will be using Hex Workshop 4.2 in the tutorial
3: Visual Boy Advance

THIS TUTORIAL IS ON HOW TO CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE FR CHARIZARD!!!

Step 1: Open your FR/LG rom in VBA
Step 2: Go to Title Screen
Step 3: Click on tools and then Map Viewer in the Tools dropdown
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN2.png
Step 4: Click on BG1 on the left side
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN3.png
Step 5: Click the area to edit on the right hand side, we'll edit the area in the green circle
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN4.png
Step 6: Find the RGB values, we'll edit the lighter brown in the red SQUARE, as shown, the RBG values are 8 0 0
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN5.png
Step 7: Open up the Palette Viewer in the Tools dropdown
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN6.png
Step 8: Find the correct RGB values, if anything, the hardest part would be finding the correct one as there are multiple RGB values of the same value. Then the Hex offset values of it and at least 3 colors next it, the Hex values are the Red circled colors inversed, i.e. 0800 for this RGB value, the Green underline indicates other colors
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN7.png
Step 9: Now open up your Hex Editor, load the rom, and search for the following string: 08000B008F009300
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN8.png
Step 10: Say we want that brown shade, to the green background color, we go back to the palette viewer and find the background color. The offsets are 52C8, which reversed are C852, so enter that in the place of the 0800 offset
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN9.png
If changed, the text should go from Blue to Red
Step 11: Save and check your handiwork
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/TITLESCREEN10.png
If done correctly, the brown shade earlier will now be the Background Green


How do I change the title of the game?

Ok, now this will be a bit harder, as you have to draw it out.

WHAT'S NEEDED:
1: FR/LG Rom
2: unLZ-GBA
3: Image Editing Program, Paint is what I use

THIS TUTORIAL IS ALSO FOR FIRE RED!!!

Step 1: Open up your rom in unLZ-GBA select B&W, 256 Color Mode, and goto image 2009 (may change per dump)
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/GameTitle1.png
To get
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/GameTitle2.png
Step 2: Save to where you want it, edit the image to what you want in Paint, and resave.
Step 3: Upload it into unLZ-GBA with the Import button
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/GameTitle3.png
To get (this is the title screen of my own hack)
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/GameTitle4.png
Step 4: Write to your rom and load your it in VBA and check your Title Screen Title
http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i46/darkmc21/GameTitle5.png


And there you go, that's how to change the Title of your hack

How do I change the title of the game?

Can someone please make me a background for leaf green with a jirachi on it?

Just the paint document you know, so it lies in a row like the venusaur because I'm not very good with paint.

what I have so far is this:

I tried to put a picture in the tiltle screen in the place of the venusaur as you explained and I imported and saved it but when I start the rom it looks like this (I used a Jirachi).

May 18th, 2007, 05:58 PM
For those who are complaining about the 'Image not indexed' error, you have to make the colours in the picture correspond with those in the palette. Either you will have to change the palette accordingly or you will have to modify the image to fit with the palette.

cory70
May 19th, 2007, 05:12 PM
Every time I try to import a picture it gives me the error: Image is not indexed.

i thought i said this before to index your image save pictures as whatever than you make your changes to the same one you saved than import

note:make sure you are only importing the one you saved to your computer or else it says image not indexed. Your problem is your trying to import a picture you didn't export.

hope that clears it up

You have to save the TS pic. Than put it in the right order. Make all Black. Insert the Poké you want to have in the TS. Than you have to put the pic so that it is like this:

http://img74.imageshack.us/img74/9226/legendarypa3.th.png (http://img74.imageshack.us/my.php?image=legendarypa3.png)

Than save it and import it. That's a liitle bit simplified but you can read the another intropoke thread.

I quote my post for an answer. Can anyone make a Gengar arrangment for me? I really don't see how you did the Charizard one and how it works. All I understand is that if I import a Gengar one it will remove Charizard and place Gengar there.

Well if it's In PNG format u should turn it into Bitmap then copy that picture to a copy of ur rom and then rexport the image it will then be an indexed Png format or u could jus do it all in Bitmap form...Thats what i do.

DON'T SAY GOOGLE!!!Please.. Have you used the search funtion - -"
APE is in our Toolbox!

And, I don't know if you're using Mac or Linux.. but when you run Windows you sure have Paint XD
Btw, Paint was just an example.. you can use any picture-editing program.

Anyway, I should've tought about it much, much sooner!! Damn.. I'm stupid... It's so easy I didn't think about it. :P
Expect a new tutorial one of these days :P

A new tutorial would be great. Maybe one with a different way to change the sprite. Not that your tutorial now is bad. It just that I find it impossable to put Charizard together in a big box again. And I have no idea how to make him in the first place. Maybe someone that knows how to do it could make a request thread to make the scrambled image.

Well.. I can't make a poll anymore.. So, if you guys want the new tutorial I'll make it.
Btw, here's a screen with the edited pallete:
http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/2739/bulbaji4.png
You can do all this in just 5~10minutes..

Btw, I could make the tutorial now, without screens.
It would only be ~15lines long I think :P

Foreword
In this tutorial we're gonna change the FireRed titlescreen completely!
In this tutorial we're going to replace the Charizard with a Pokémon or trainer sprite we find in the game.
We're also going to change the Pokémon and Version-logo's position.
And -MEH- just read on..


What you'll need:
- Some patience
- UnLZ-GBA
- Cyclone
- Advanced Pallete Editor
- MS Paint or someting like that
- FireRed (US) ROM [POKEMON FIREBPRE01]
- VisualBoyAdvance


Takeoff!
Ok, open your ROM in UnLZ and look for a sprite you want to use.
[I'm gonna use the Scientist (http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/7758/scientistct3.png)-sprite (#1606).]
// Pokémon Sprites {668»1498} | Trainer Sprites {1499»1646}
Found your sprite? Good, now push "Save as..." and save the sprite.
Done, good.. before we go on, please write down the pallete offset and number (http://img117.imageshack.us/img117/4885/palletenotesxl7.png).
Now, in UnLZ-GBA goto "2011". If you have the same FR ROM than I have, you'll see (something like) this (http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/7003/charal6.png).
Yeah, you're right.. this is the Charizard from the titlescreen, a lil' messed up, but we don't care.
I hope you remember the pallete number form your sprite? Well, enter the number and push "Select Pal".
The colors of the Charizard will change to the ones from your sprite (DUH).
Now, push "Save as..." and save your picture.
Okido, now open your saved 'Charizard' in Paint and fill the picture with the background-color.
[8/10 times it's that green color.]
Now, this is for Paint only, do "Edit - Paste from..." and select your saved sprite.
It should load in the upper left corner. Just leave it there and save your image.
[Save it as a 24-bit .BMP]
Done? Ok, import your new image in UnLZ-GBA. Hit "Write to ROM" to save.
[Make sure auto-abort is checked, if the image is too big, it won't write to the ROM.]
-- [If it is too big, please read "Too big?"]
The image is saved to the ROM, so hit "Next".
You'll see a messed up something (http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/1309/tilemapfm4.png).. We need to dump it, so hit "Raw Dump".
Ok, I think it's time to open Cyclone and start 'editing' the Charizard's TileMap.
Follow exactly the steps on the screen (http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/2789/cyclonenf3.png).
[1. Select that saved .BMP | 2. Make sure you selected pallete 14 | 3. Select that saved RAW]
-- [It's possible you need to change the FileType before you see your files]
You'll get a messed up picture on the right, just fill everything with the green color.
Ok, now you need to 'map' the sprite from the left to the right, tile by tile.
[The right picture 'emulates' the screen, where you put it there it's shown ingame]
-- [This will take the most time to do]
When you're done, save your new tilemap, make sure you save ass RAW.
Back in UnLZ-GBA, still at 2012 load your RAW. [File - Load RAW...]
Hit "Write to ROM", make sure Auto-Abort is checked and see if it's bigger or not.
It is? Read "Too big?". | It isn't? You're lucky!
Ok, do you want to see if you did it right? Open your ROM in VBA then.
[Looks (http://img244.imageshack.us/img244/32/screen1hy7.png) like I did well...]
... but the colors are messed up! Don't, worry, we'll handle that.
Open your ROM in APE and go to that pallete offset you wrote down. [I hope you still have it!]
[When you used a Pokémon or Trainer sprite make sure you check "Compressed Pallete"]
You'll see the colors of the sprite.. right? Hit the "Copy" button. [The pallete will be copied to the bottom, see?]
Now, load the pallete at offset "00EAD5E8", this is the Charizard pallete.
[Uncheck the "Compressed Pallete" option]
When it's loaded, just hit "Replace" and your done! Check your work again in VBA.
Done, see (http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/5752/screen2jn2.png)?

Arrgghhh.. I'm sick you know, and this tutorial s*cks!
Really, I want to start over.. anyway, you now know how it works, don't you?
I want to add more things too.. but -MEH-


Too big?
Open your ROM in a HEX Editor.
Look for a lot of FFs or 00s.
Found a lot of FFs or 00s? Look at the offset and copy it.
In that lil' popup in UnLZ-GBA when you hit "Write to ROM" replace the "Image Offset" with your new one.
UNchek Auto-abort and check Auto-fix.
Hit OK and everything should be fine when you load your ROM..


-MEH-
I'm gonna make a better one later.. I'm just tired and have a headache, too long in the sun, you know?
I'm really sorry guys, but I promissed (and obligated myself) I'll post it today, so.

I did mine wrong in cyclone!
Ah well I'll try again i was tired and it was late at night when i tried so that could have been what happend!

Edit: I realised what it is! It's the offset 2011 when i insert my image i save it give it an empty offset found in hex workshop! And it just won't save!!! I make sure auto abort is unchecked it loads then i check it again and it isn't saved!!!
I'm trying to put milotic on it!

Edit2: Yes it worked now to pallete edit it!
Edit3: Well everything worked out perfectly i will post my results later!

Edit4 o.0 : Well as i prommised my results!!!
http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/3355/pokemontitlescreenresulnr8.png (http://imageshack.us)

and the third bore similar results as the second.
Could you help me?

Also, If you don't mind, could you tell where the background is. (For the title; the fire stuff going up behind charry.)

FR is flame
LG is leaf
I want change it
Thant you can change it in Unlz.GBA , i have a video tutorial but
its in spanish , sorry, is near the number 135 i think, i dont remember
now, but you only modify it in Paint and insert it in Unlz, heres an example
of a titlescreen in FR:

You can see that the flames are changed ^^ Thats with Unlz ^^


---------
Paint comes with Windows =S , look for it in google is the best i
can tell you, or also you can download it by Ares, which is a program
that downloads EVERYTHING ;)

Takeoff!
The colors of the Charizard will change to the ones from your sprite (DUH).
Now, push "Save as..." and save your picture.
Okido, now open your saved 'Charizard' in Paint and fill the picture with the background-color.
[8/10 times it's that green color.]
Now, this is for Paint only, do "Edit - Paste from..." and select your saved sprite.
It should load in the upper left corner. Just leave it there and save your image.
[Save it as a 24-bit .BMP]


What do u mean by the 8/10 times it's that green color?? i dont get that step can some1 explain me what to do there and how u do it

Editing the title version for Fire Red in my case has been a pain in the butt.
I've done it with photoshop using the correct colors, indexed it, paste it over the original one in paint and other stuff, but it always screws up -_-'
I'm using 256 color mode, in grayscale, as properly said on a previous post.
I did this a long time ago with an old Ruby hack... The titlescreen resulted good, but I remember I had been editing it having used the correct Pallete (yes thats right, the pokemon logo and everything appeared just like in VBA bg viewer, with green background and everything properly colored)
But I can't manage to get my title version done again this way. :S
Can anybody help me refresh my memory? lol. Haven't touched a rom in ages... since 2004 lol
I'd post a screenshot of my old titlescreen... but not allowed yet :P

Oh my God, that is too much, look, i'm too lazy, so someone, named gary, taught me
a way to make it easier and faster ^^

1.- First, open in Paint an image with the size of 72 x 120 and color all of it BLACK
2.- Paste the sprite that you want in the title screen on the black colored picture. Save it as GIF
NOTE: If the sprite you are inserting has some lines that are blacn, R:0 G:0 B:0 color
that lines with another color very very very very similar of black, but it dont have to be
RGB : 000 ^^ Because that is the transparecy color ^^
3.- Index that picture, you can use any program that you know to index, PhotoShop is
the one i use ^^ Index it in 16 colours. Save it as GIF
4.- Open that picture in Cyclone and put the order the image in the other side.
5.- Save the raw and insert it in the rom, and then just change the palls
and there is your Title Screen..

Glitch: Changing the palls, it happens the same that happens with a TitleScreen in
Ruby, the "POKEMON FIRE RED VERSION" messes up... ^^

Then just use your imagination to make super title screens in FireRed, an example:

Dont steal the idea!!

Very nice work :P and thanks a lot :P
Anyway, Has anybody tried importing Venusaur and the Venusaur tilemap rom Leaf Green to Fire Red?
I remember once me doing that time ago... but with R/S. I imported the Sapphire tilemap and Kyogre into Ruby and it worked perfectly. I don't remember if I did anything else on it... but it was Sapphire's titlescreen indeed... and it was Ruby.

Just look up within the thread.

Okay! Sorry for double posting...
Well I got something good that could help a few on their hacks.
As we can all see, it's better editing Venusaur from LG than Charizard in FR, because you can't fit something very well over Charizard's image...
Well, just wanted to show you guys you could all do this:
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i257/AntiRellik/PokemonFireRedU_01.png
How was that Ho-oh in the Leaf Green tutorial placed?? It was placed THANKS to Venusaurs size... and it's easier to arrange the Venusaur image than arranging Charizard's.
You just need to follow the same steps in this guide. Save the image in black & white.
Grab a Leaf Green rom, go to 2012 which is Venusaur's image. Export it, after this hit "Next"
You'll see a "messed up something" very similar to the one we saw in the tutorial in page 4, Hit RAW DUMP.
Okay your done with Leaf Green... Open your Fire Red Rom. Goto 2012, then go to File - LOAD RAW. Load the raw you dumped from Leaf Green and then Write To Rom. Then go to 2011 which is Charizard and click "Import", choose the Venusaur image you exported earlier from Leaf Green and import it.
On that window with a few options, uncheck the "Auto abort if new data is bigger" and check the "Automatically fix pointers", Search for empty space in your ROM and set a new Image Offset. Click "ok" and you are done. Test your fire red ROM and you'll have the same exact image of Fire Red with Venusaur's image.
It's something very simple to do... If some of you just want to go through a quick way, do this I just explained. It's more comfortable editing Venusaur than Charizard for the titlescreen.

By the way... This is an old titlescreen of mine of a Ruby hack:
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i257/AntiRellik/CrystalClear_01.png
I did the "Crystal Clear" version logo with photoshop, indexed it and all, But when I do this with Fire Red I always mess it up. Any ideas of what I could be doing wrong? I've even used the right colors... I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong :(

Yes, the title screen that i showed up in this page:
http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc147/derv1205/MuestraPortadaLucario.gif

I made it that way, i change the title screen in LeafGrean and insert all (the picture
and the tile map) to FireRed and it worked ^^
The problem in your name "CRYSTAL ..." is that, FireRed isnt the same as
Ruby, the colors are different (in Black and White), just try to recolor everything, all
the pixels have to be with the FR colors ^^ It would take a long time, but just be patience xD ^^
I can help you with that if you want, just PM me ;) ^^
