ok, so i have been doing it correctly :/
any suggestions on why it has not been working for me?
I have the trainer ID set to the person i changed in PET and the offsets match, i use the template and type in 0x002 (the trainer im using) and it loads the template. i than change the green text to what i want it to say. i save it. compile it. and make sure the offsets match. i then exit and save my game in A-Map.
