thanks I am sorry about that. I was in a rush earlier. Sometime you will have to teach me about the swf in vba. I just couldnt seem to find it. I checked the box, ran the game in vba, and all the stuff came up, searched through notepad for it and nothing came up...
I have only done it on FR. I have no idea for Emerald, but if you can find the images, it shouldn't be too hard. Try using the logging feature in VBA to log all BIOS calls, and search for SWI 0x12 (LZ Decompression). The results contain the offsets of all images loaded to the screen as they load.
All right I will do that as soon as I have time. I think that WWMB (the emerald offset guy) might have some stuff in his thread.
But I do have a question do you know how to insert the background behind birch in the intro in pokemon ruby. I am trying to do it for emerald, but I already know that no one would have done that (and put up a tutorial). I have searched around whack a hack, but nothing came up. Anyways thanks again.
