Find the offset you installed it at, and replace it with empty space. I believe it's 00 for Ruby/Sapphire, FF for Firered/Leafgreen, and both-but-just-use FF for emerald. But it looks to me like you failed to actually install it over free space; the tool doesn't (seem) to do that for you. Use HackMew's FreeSpaceFinder (FSF) to insert it at the values it returns. Starting at the 0x800000 offset seems to work okay on a clean rom. Many if not most hackers using the tool will have scripts, pallets, music, or tilesets or such there already, though, meaning there's good reason not to have the tool start there by default.I hope you made backups because it looks like you might have ruined that rom.
Hey! If you're a tool maker or you have a resource to contribute, but you're not up to trying to make a guide, I'll be happy to try and write one up for you if you want. All I need is a pm and the offsets.

DNS stopped working for me. I tried uninstalling it, and re downloading it, but I can't get it to work anymore. It says that it stopped working. It worked before, but now just stopped for no reason.
All hail Goomy!!

Whenever I launch the program I immediately get "DNS has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem". I've tried Compatibility mode and Running as an Administrator. Nothing fixes the problem.
Once upon a time a had a signature,
but then I grew up and realized it was crap.

It did start working again, but still not quite sure how the seasons work. Can I make each season just a week long? I'm not very good with all the offsets, and not exactly sure how they work.
All hail Goomy!!

Two quick questions:

A) Has anyone found out how to fix the warp arrow glitch, where palettes 0, 1, 4, and 5 get kicked off the DNS until the map reloads if you step next to a warp with the blinking arrow? I'm on Ruby, but I would take any information about a fix for any of the roms.

Edit: In lieu of a fix for this glitch, I have found an alternative for the left/right warps that ends up working almost exactly the same, except it uses an extra warp event. You have to make a ground (or whatever terrain is directly in front of your door) block with behavior set to 61. Now place a warp onto it, and set the talking level on the right to anything that isn't the terrain level you are on. This makes it so you can never travel through this warp, but you can get warped to this exact spot. Set up the actual door block's tiles how you like, and set the behavior to 61, and link the warp to the warp inside the building. Now on the warp inside the building, you'll want to link it to the warp that is on the ground block outside. The way behavior 60 works is that you'll always end up at that warp facing the direction you were facing went you went through the warp to get there. In our case, landing you left or right of the door.

You might think this is a complicated way of going about it and that one warp would do, but if you do it any other way, you either have the dns arrow glitch, or you end up facing the wrong direction coming out, or on structures where there are multiple blocks next to each other serving as the door, you can actually walk up or down along the doorway and warp inside, which looks really strange.

The up/down warps are easily substituted with behaviors 60 and 6E.

I hope this helps anyone else out there who is unable to figure out how to fix the warp arrow glitch. Remember, you can still use the arrow warps indoors or on maps that don't have the DN system on them.

B) I noticed on CrystalDust that for his Day Night System (which I think he said was custom made?) His afternoon/evening tint is a much lighter red than what is in the stock DNS here. On an older version of the DNS, I also noticed there was a checkbox for "Lighter?", which although I never tried to use, I assume made the tint not so heavy. Is it possible to modify the routine for this version of the DNS to include lighter tints?

Will this be able to work if you have already put day and night on your hack?

Your RTC breaks trade system! After trading, when you get other trainer's Pokemon it says "Take good care of it" and then crashes. When I uninstalled your RTC, it works fine. So, please fix it, because I really need trading in my hack.

Nice! Gonna try this. It is been a while to insert RTC to FR/LG. Does this will make evolve Eevee into Umbreon and Espeon? I'll be glad for that. And, how we will know the time in game anyway?
