Sorry if this question was repeated, but as stated, 8BPP mode won't accept the sphere files (effectively making the video provided worthless), is there any way I can get the tilemap into a RAW file? I really don't want to make the map tile-by-tile in NTME.
Look, I've got the tileset written into the ROM, but it won't take the tilemap in the default offset—it just keeps saying "Compressed size is 2C0. Which is too big. Aborting." When I try to repoint it allows it, but it doesn't give me the Ptr Changed message, and that's no matter if I have "Automatically fix pointers" checked or not. Any idea what my problem is? It's a normal 8BPP tilemap made in Cyclone.
I've had this problem before. Start over, but this time do not make a tileset. First, make your picture with GIMP and save it as a 16-color bitmap, then immediately open it up in Cyclone (8BP Mode). Make your tilemap there and you should have no problem opening it up in TMA.
Oh yah, usually 8BP mode would reject having that many tiles, but it worked for me. I just tried it out again and it worked perfectly. PM me if you have any more problems.
(Okay, since I haven't posted 15 posts, I can't give you any images, but I hope you can still make some sense out of this.)
I did this: Should have shown Cyclone with a complete 16x16 tileset and a complete map.
Now, if I put my .raw from cyclone into 136 I get this: Shows that the tiles are placed properly.
This should be the right placement for these tiles.
However, when I do this like the guide told me to do it (No, I didn't do it with the file that was already altered.) using 135 and 136 (I seem to be missing a file, as I have found out from past experiences.), I get this: I can recognize a few tiles here and there, there seems to be no or little system in their placement. Some of the colours appear to be gone.
I used the offsets 0xFD0000 and 0xFD1000, but I only got one ptr found message for each file I saved.
It would be really helpful if you could tell me what's wrong.
And btw, the reason why I have those borders on my map is because I made a too detailed map, so I had twice as many tiles as I should have.
I have almost got everything, but when i look at the map in game, its a mess of black with red lines and dots and other random things. I think its the tileset not correctly in the rom, but im not sure. What am i doing wrong? (Sorry, i cant post pictures because of the 15 post rule)
I have hit a massive dilemma - I tried making the tileset but found out I don't have enough space for my map to fit on it, is there anything I can do so that I can fit the rest on. Can I use 2 tilesets to make up the world map?
You're right about NTME. I went ahead and redrew it in 8BPP and it loads just fine at the R/S World Map settings. I should note that I'm only getting one "Ptr found at 00XXXXXX. Changed." message per insertion in unLZ.
The map is still all over the place, but the colors are correct. For whatever reason it seems determined not to adjust to my Johto rendition and scatter itself across the original Hoenn outline instead.
Same exact problem here. I tried to do a "test" map with only 2 colors in the tileset. I inseted it into my Rom, and the map has the correct colors, but the image outlines the original Hoenn map. Is there any solutions to this problem?
Edit: I figured out how to do it! For those of you struggling, it's all about trial and error. If something didn't work, try something new. If you don't give up, you will eventually find it! Also to edit the "HOENN" that appears when observing the map, you simply type in HOENN in A-text, and I think it will be the last HOENN you see when searching.
Can't seem to make a tileset for my map, can anyone help? & since i couldn't i used your tutorial's map & tileset to see if I can still be successful meanwhile i don't have a tileset but i couldn't load the map into NTME because it wasn't a .raw file. please help?
