    Well you need to Read Hex where the header is, and store it to a variable, its different in every generation of ROM, so open them up in a HEX editor and see where it says which ROM it is, usually in the first line...

    As for editing a listbox's contents with IFs, I haven't been able to figure this out yet, but I'll let you know if I do. If you're familiar with Torrent programs, then search for them in there. Its the easiest way to get a ROM and emulator...

    so what command/function/text would i put in the code to return the header?

    YoMama the Crystal Developer. That's got a ring to it. Although I do want to make some things for advance games too.

    yeah, the size would go from like 300kb to around 5mb real quick. oh well.

    two more questions - one, how can i edit the contents of a listbox with an If statement? what is the array that holds the list options? and, do you know of a good ds emulator? right now i'm using visual boy advance, and that's good for everything up to d/p. also do you know of a place to download the d/p roms?

    lol i guess it doesn't matter how good i get. i still always seem to have questions.

    Good job man, I am sure it will help a lot of people out! Well, I am not to sure about images, as I never bother to include things like that, as it would send the size of the download WAY up, think about it, 251 images added into the program. A lot of space... Thanks for the credit by the way, it's nice to get a shout lol! A wild pokemon editor for Crystal would be good, go for it, theres not much point making one for G/S though as GoldMap already changes this. But Crystal would be useful. You could be YoMama the Crystal developer eh?

    To make it universal, you have to read the header of the ROM, then tell the program what to d for each header. Basically, you can do it with ReadHEX, then store the returned value as a string...

    sure man. here it is -

    also, one more question (i know, it seems like they never stop coming. lol) i was wondering if there is any way to dynamically change an image according to user input (e.g. the user chooses bulbasaur so a bulbasaur picture appears)

    i also credited you and darthatron in the program.

    i'm going to start on a wild pokemon editor for crystal, and try to make it universal. but to make it universal, i need to know what ROM the user chose (e.g. Pokemon Gold.gbc), and i'm not sure how to do this.

    Well, offsets are different so all the stuff you researched would have to be re-researched for the other games, so it would be a lot more work. Threads take quite a while to be approved, my toolbox took about 2 days!!! Well, just find a gap where a tool would be useful and see if you can make it! I can't really give away ideas I have come up with, as I want to keep releasing stuff too xD!

    lol i noticed that. i looked at your site a little while ago. however, this tool is not for g/s. it's just for c. for some reason when you load a g/s rom it enters crazy crap like level 93 Zapdos with Water Gun. i'll try to make a universal one though. do you have any idea why my thread hasn't been approved yet? also, can you give me some suggestions of tools to make? i could make some tools that other people have already made, but that wouldn't be too original.

    Thats great! Well done for figuring out VB, in a pretty short amount of time, you know, I am working on a tool just like that but for G/S/C! Never mind!

    I hope to see more stuff from you soon!

    i messed around with it a LOT last night, and found out a lot of stuff. the reason it was greyed out is because i didn't click the registry thing. i understand the formulae thing now. and i now know how to add an icon. i made a tool last night that allows you to edit the gym leaders, elite four, and red in crystal version. you can edit the pokemon, the pokemon's level, and the pokemon's four attacks. i posted it in the toolbox board. waiting for it to be approved. it's in the thread yomama's Toolbox. thanks for all your help swampert. tell me what you think of my first "official" tool.

    Ok. When you say that the listindex = I, that is a formulae. It works for every one in the list, so if its 10 or 500 long it doesn't which one you click, you don't have to write code for every item in the list.

    If you want to read say 5 pokemon's data from a list, and each pokemon has 2 bytes then, the code would be

    If listbox.listindex = I Then
    ReadHEX, LoadedROM, ([offset of first pokemon] + I * 2), 2 'As I is zero in the first case, you only need put where the string of data begins...

    This obviously only works for data that follows each other. If there is something in between you cannot use formulae.

    I hope you understand, as I cannot simplyfy it much furthur (I'm rubbish at explaining xD)

    To add an icon, click on your form and go to 'Icon' in the editing box. Do the same for each form you have.

    I don't know why its greyed out, have you saved the project?

    again, also, for some reason 'make ....exe' is greyed out. any idea what's wrong?

    also, i was wondering how to add an icon to my executable file. thanks for all your help swampert!
