Hey sweeties! Since, many of you have never heard of the search function on PC, nor read the other threads here, all of you may ask your questions concerning basic ROM hacking in this thread. Please do not start a new thread, just ask your simple questions here. This helps us reduce spam, and puts all your questions in one easy to find location. Okie? =3

Some sample simple questions:
(Anyone found answering these questions will have their post deleted)

How do use edit the text?
How do I edit the sprites?
How do I edit the title screen?
How do I make a script?

And some rules:
  • You cannot ask for ROMs. Just use google or some P2P program for all your illegal needs.
  • Do not ask the same questions over and over again. Instead, search the thread if it already has been answered and if not, just wait for someone to answer it! If you don't want to wait, just search the forum and try to find an answer yourself. Almost everything has been answered before.
  • Do not demand for answers to your questions! People to not have to answer your questions, they do it because they want to! Not only are those posts annoying, they also are completely pointless! If such a post is found, it will probably be deleted.
And a notice: If your post is being deleted from this thread, you have probably asked a question which has already been asked and answered before. In that case, just use the search function or read through the previous pages of the thread to find your answer!



Ask away and enjoy, sweeties! =3

I am trying to make a hack of fire red and the wild pokemon editor I was using "Bewildered" couldn't open the rom it said Supported Rom, but Wild Pokemon base is unspecified. What do I do?

If nobody knows than does anybody know a Wild Pokemon Editor for fire red that actually works.

where you can change someone into a pokeball with an item, it asks whats the number of the item you want the pokeball to contain.
Could someone give me a list of the items next to there numbers?

>>>>EDIT:
as my posts been move here. ill answer some questions.

How to change the starters on fire red?
Use poketronic, it has a thing on ti called firestarter. You could also check the tutorials for a hex awlkthrough, or you can use advance starter.

Where is the prof oak sprite in unlz?
Cant help you there i believe hes a compressed image you have to use tlp to change i think.

What unlz number is the backsprites for emerald hero/ heroine?
1367, 1368 is the ones on ruby. Im guessing there be near there.

I wanna make it in a hack where a pokemon starter can follow you through the journey. How would one do this?
Cant help you there but it would use really advance scripting, find a really good hacker and Pm them.

Can I create a script where the boy and girl receive a mew level 2 at pallet town?
yes but i cant help you wid that. maybe check the scripts sectio nin documents/tutorials.

Arken Daemon try useing advance map for changing wild pokemon, its alot easier.

manson_30 you cant walk anywhere. have you changed the move data on advance map yet. The 1s on the mpa mean solid and the Cs mean where you can walk.
No rom in directory means you gotta put your rom in the directory. E.g. put it in the elitemap folder.

Drake1012, you would have to change the script. Or maybe on elitemap or advancemap move where he is standing and experiment on where he turns out..say you've moved the gym 7 spaces left and 6 up do the same with the character.


I hope this hleped any of you, sorry if it didn't/

1. Edit the Tiledata of the Titlescreen. Export it with unLZ-GBA, edit it and import it back in.
Then change the pallete of the Titlescreen to match your needed colors.

2. Goto these Offsets with your Hex-Editor and change the Pokmon-bytes to the ones you like: (A list of values can be found here.)
Bulbasaur: 169BB5
Charmander: 169D82
Squirtle: 169DB8

3. It's uncompressed. You can find it at offset 0045EE00 with TLP or Tile-Molester.

4. Go to the objects tab, select the event type and CTRL+Click on "Repoint". Then enter the new amount of the event and an offset with free space.

5. They are uncompressed. The animations are starting at offset 00D66400. Edit them with TLP or Tile-Molester.

You have to add the Wild-Pokmon offset to your PokeRoms.ini in order to use bewildered.

Alternatively, you can edit the Wild Pokmon by using Advance-Map.

You have to edit his Script. ScriptED will help you with that. (It comes with EliteMap.)
See the "commands.htm" and "tutorial.htm" that are located in the EliteMap folder and the Script Database in the Tutorial forum.

As I told you via PM already, you have to edit the movement permissions.
Click on an attribute from the "Attribute" box, then on the Tile of a Tileset you want to have that attribute on.
Now put it on your map.
It is easier to edit them with AdvanceMap though.

That means that you have to put your *.GBA roms in the same directory as the program in order to be able to open them.

You can find a list in your "stditems.rbh" that is located in your EliteMap folder.
You will see them listed like this:
Code:
#define ITEM_MASTERBALL        0x1
As you see it tells you the Name (Masterball) and the number in hex. (Remember to add a 00 at the end. 1 will become 0100, 2 will become 0200 and 2D will become 2D00.)

Looks like your Pokmon pictures are missing.
Open RSBall and dump the Pokmon pictures.

If you don't need Pokmon pictures, just click on "Options"->"Show as text" to show the Pokmon names in a Dropdown list.

Hi, I have a question.
In the starting you get a pokdex, how can i make it a national dex?
because i am making a hack of pkmn FIRERED were you can catch missingno wich transforms into a gold pokemon (unown) but it stops cause i have not the national dex.
what must I edit (script or else) to get a national dex instead of a normal pokdex in the beginning?
thanks for anhy help
p.s. when you catch it (missingno) and buy something in the mart, you will turn into a old woman and then the game crashes

When you use a set a flag in script editor, how do you know you aren't using the flag number of another event and are messing up that event's flags etc?

Wild Pokmon: You should take a look in Advance-Map's INI files.
The offsets should be there.

Music: Hex-Editor. Or the new Sappy 2005 (or 6). See the official EliteMap website from the Hacking Tools Reference. (You can get it there.)

DEX arrangement: Hex-Editor. Search for the Pokmon-value bytes, as they appear in the DEX. Then just edit them to the arrangemeant you want them to have.

You don't know. You will have to try and see what happens. Also you could have a look at the Map Event's Flag values and write them down, that way you could make a list for futher reference.

You can create a hacking tool by using any programming language developing enviroment. (Like C++, Visual Basic, etc.)

At the moment, no.
Mewthree90000 is working on one, but it will take some time until it will be released.

Open up ScriptED, enter your Script in the textbox, hit "Compile" and select your ROM. (Remeber that the ROM must have a simple Name (like Ruby.gba), no spaces or such.)
