Ok, this is a really noob question, but...

I'm moving away from the overt simplicity of hacking Advance Gen. games, and am setting my sights on making hacks of gb/gbc games; namely Blue and Gold.

Now here's where the noobness comes in;

I have a hex editor, and have been able to write text to certain parts of the rom, but I'm not sure how to implement that text to be said by one of the characters/signs, because it asks me for a text bank and a text block, whatever that means.

So, what is the Text Bank and Text Block's relation to the text's actual location, in hex, within the rom?

:/

The "text block"/"text bank" label in Goldmap is mislabeled. It has nothing to do with text -- it's actually the two-byte pointer to the script, as you can see if you check out the scripts in hex. To do what you're asking (make it so that people can say things), you should look up scripting; cooley has a tutorial a few pages into the Documents/Tutorials section. And if you haven't already, read up on pointers.

As an aside, Blue is very unfriendly if you don't already know how it works. I recommend sticking with Gold until you have a bit more experience editing GBC games.

I don't know about the Diamond cutter, but if you use pokescript, you could get some guidance from this tutorial for making scripts and inserting them. Or you could read up thethethethe's scripting tutorial. If you use scripted then this should help you through the basics of making a script and this should help you to compile them. Have fun.

Google "birmin studios" and click on the first link. Then, at the top, click on Hack Tools and it should be there.

You have either overwritten the picture with the previous pic (find it in a clean rom) or edited wrong the "speed fell" text, It happened to me once while translating that the game froze when using ancientpower (if raised the stats) for similar reasons.

Hey, I have a question: This guide was made by Coolboyman, it looks important, but I'm not sure how to use it! So, how can I use it in my hack? I'm using Windhex...

They are flags, you can activate them, reset them and check if they are on or off. The codes used are from 31-33 for Bit Table 1 and 34-36 for Bit Table 2.

What program do you use to edit/add/change battle sprites of Pokémon or the Professor at the beginning of Pokémon Gold?

well, keep looking. I don't know it and don't think noone has it written down.
And the speed fell text is "X's Y Z" where X is the rival pokemon, Y is attack, defense... and Z is rose/fell/sharply rose/sharply fell, but if you haven't edited battle texts it isn't it.

I use GBcolorizer for my gold spriting. Is there a good substitute for this? If not then is it possible to import sprites as you can do with Hackmew and Xeon's OW?

Still spriting behind the curtains. I've tried splicing, I've tried scratching, I've tried pixel overs, I've tried revamps and am 90%+ awesome at it. Now its time for the devamps

you just navigate to the Gold ROM with the arrow keys, press Enter, it has instructions

your second question: not easily, not with a tool that does alot of the work for you
