No, he means listen to the track, buy a music writing program with some good midi sounds and create the MIDI on your own. I use Sibileus, it's a great program, but the MIDI isn't as good as I'd hoped.

Converting a .wav file to a MIDI is hard enough. Converting a MP3 file is ever harder. Avoid such conversions anyway, as they're not worth the effort. You will experience enough problem to make your .mid file play the right way in the game. Just get the MIDI version of the song.

It's kinda crucial that you learn to find things yourself, sometimes. The table offset for FireRed US v1.0 is 0x48C914.

You would know that if you read the built-in guide. Make sure you're using the newest version.

It's because a MIDI file stores notes played by instruments, while a MP3 file stores the actual sound wave. If you know how an instrument sounds, it's easy to convert the notes into a sound wave. However, good luck figuring out which notes are played on which instruments from a sound wave...

Can you read the message? :P
You're missing that file. It comes with MID2AGB, so don't ask it.

Not to say MP3 files are compressed sound vawes. So the conversion is going to be even less successfull.

I tried editing the rival's intro sprite, but it becomes a screwy palette if I give him a custom name (the first time he looks fine, after I give him a custom name), the shading of the red becomes green (which looks horrible) and the skin becomes blue and white. I used BLUE's face colours, but it doesn't work for crap. Help!!

Now I understand... that's normal. Take you sprite and index it. Then, insert it through unLZ.

Indexing (to my knowledge) means to assign a palette to the picture. In gba pokemon hacking the pallette will be either 16bit (meaning it has 16 colors) or 256bit (meaning it has 256). That is the clearest I can explain it.

To index the sprite, download irfanview. Then go to "image" and "decrease color depth" and make sure it is decreased to 16 colors.

Tried it. I tried it in two ways (probably not the right ones).
1- I take my original rival sprite and convert it in 16-bit with Irfanview. I take the 16-bit sprite and paste it on the BLUE sprite. Results: Same problem as before.
2- I paste my original rival sprite on the BLUE sprite. I save and convert it in 16-bit with Irfanview. Results: Worse than before. All the colours are screwed up. None match and there is no transparency.

What did I do wrong?
