Hey this is WINGZRO17.
I'm gonna teach you how to edit the backsprite(hero) of Pokemon FIRE RED.



First off, you need these:
VBA
APE
TILE MOLESTER ALTERNATE (Get it from ZOPHAR's DOMAIN)
(ALSO, keep a zip file of it. It likes to crash right after it uses a rom.)
Spoiler:
(EDIT: I found a way to keep it from crashing after you used a rom on it:
1. - Goto resources in the folder of TMA[TILE MOLESTER ALTERNATE].
2. Delete the file that has your ROM name on it.[In the folder RESOURCES ; It's a XML document]
And.. TADA! It's fixed!)

A FIRE RED ROM
A PALETTE OF YOUR SPRITE(I used Brendan's from ruby.)
A PICTURE(BMP,GIF,ECT) OF YOUR SPRITE(BRENDAN'S ^_^)

I think that's just about it...




Step 1 - Palette Editing(You don't need to, but it's nice to.)



First off, get into a battle:

Spoiler:


Then goto:
Spoiler:


After that Save the OBJ:
Spoiler:


Make sure it's Paintshop PAL
Spoiler:


Next, open up APE and search for you palette(if you do, you'll come up with two offsets: the second one is the backsprite.)....or
Since I'm nice, I'll give you the offset(Sorry, only hero's offset)
Spoiler:
00E76EBC - Make sure this is compressed palette.(This is not the palette of the Trainer Card's Sprite)


I'll replace the hero's pallete with brendan's pallete...

Spoiler:


P.S. It's a good idea to save the palette as a TLP palette after you replaced it. We're gonna need it.



Part 2 - Editing the Sprite:





Now, open TMA(TILE MOLESTER ALTERNATE)

Now goto offset(I think it's NAVIGATE - GOTO or just press CTRL+G)

As you see it's...Well....Erm....kinda messed up

So time to fix it!

First:
Spoiler:

Spoiler:


Then:
Spoiler:


So you see it's fixed.

Now goto PALETTE - IMPORT FORM - ANOTHER FILE
Spoiler:


Import your palette file
Spoiler:
Remember before when I said save the palette of your new sprite as a TLP? Well now's the time to use it!
.....And look! Pretty!
Spoiler:


So then we goto VIEW - BLOCK GRID AND....
Spoiler:


Yay! Were almost done!

Now: EDIT - PASTE FROM....
Spoiler:


And select your file...
Spoiler:


WHOA!
Spoiler:


Now fix....
Spoiler:


W0000t! (DON'T forget to SAVE)

Now for the finished product....
Spoiler:

xP Meh. Good enough...


Congrats, you did it!

I hope this tutorial helps.
