With ASM, or maybe by repointing the entires and adding more. ASM is most likely but I'm not sure. I'll just say that it's not going to be easy.

I've read that setting off the flag for the National Dex in Pokemon FR/LG before the Elite Four's first encounter can really screw things up pretty badly and not allow you to fight them.

I've done some mild hex research and came to a half-baked conclusion that this is a result of flag 0x193, which in the Indigo Plateau (bank 13 map 10) event files is what causes the girl to say Lorelei is out.

Further investigation revealed flag 0x844 as what puts things right, and this flag is what CELIO sets off upon completing his work on ONE ISLAND (post gemstones).

Lorelei has her own set of flags - 0x2D4 is what prompts her to say she'll be going back to
the Pokemon league.

However, I am a complete newb to hex editing as well as a complete newb to this kind of thing. This is where I need help - how do I go about keeping the National Dex activated without screwing up the Elite Four encounter?

I think I'm on the right track, but if one of the far more knowledgeable people could provide help I'd be hugely grateful.

Thanks!

Special 0x16F atfter setting the pokedex should enable the antional dex. If it screws up the Eilte 4 then you've probably got a bad ROM. :\

Ah, I haven't exactly tested it outright, I'm just going off what I've heard, really.

I was told that the flag that sets off the National Pokedex sets off another flag somewhere that enables the "hard mode" of the Elite 4 as well as the Islands 4-7 quest.

Originally in Fire Red, when you unlock the national pokedex, it makes it so you can go into the cave in mount ember. However, if you are hacking fired and use that flag those events will not happen, because if you are hacking the entire game, you will be editing the scripts.

When I try to add this (img264.imageshack.us/img264/9740/femaleplayercharacter.png) image to overwrite the picture of May in my Ruby rom using unLZ-GBA, I get the error message "Error: Image not Indexed". How do I fix this and add that image to my rom?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, Which game is the easiest to hack for a first timer? just been reading something on another forum of a hack game and thought I'll give it a go, the guy is using FR, but I wouldn't mind doing a D/P hack but not doing it before I thought i'd bugger up somehow, so should I start with FR to get a grasp of things?

Also, whats a decent move editor? I got a pack of editors but there isn't a move one in there, jsut want to change Name, base stats, etc etc of a move.

Firered would be the best ROM to hack.Also,try Advance Attack(Or something along the lines) for editing the move.A-Text should be used for moves.

Anyway,which ROM is best for tile inserting?My Ruby ROMs always screw up when I use tiles somebody else made.

I did that, but then the background color was set to index 8 instead of index 0 in the palette, so there was a blue-green box around the sprite when it loaded in-game.

I'll answer this in a little more detail and simplicity. First in the palette editor, switch the background colour with the first colour in the palette.
Then save them image but don't ovewrite the original.
Now in an images editor, paste the original over the new one and presto!

Or use Photoshop/Paintshop Pro to index it, you won't need to mess about with rearranging the palettes.

I don't understand exactly what you mean.

Could you break it down a little bit?

Basically all it does is activate the event at mount ember with the rockets.

They should all be the same.

The tiles are all the same size, of course.

The only thing is that the R/S/E doors are larger than the FR/LG doors and could cause some trouble.
