Hello, I'm trying to add pokemon music to my Pokemon FireRed hack. So I have a Music, and I've converted it into a MIDI file. The MIDI sounded so different but still okay, as it resembles the old file a bit. Then when I use Mid2Agb to convert it to an "S" file, and assemble it into the game with SAPPY, the music is beyond recognition.

What can I do?

This is because gamefreak's voicegroups don't have all the instruments, only what they use. You must import instruments. It's not going to just know what to do man! XD
My mega-huge sappy tutorial covers this.

Uh, I'm still having some trouble with this. :s

Some more screenshots to highlight the problem:
Spoiler:


* When I interact with the sprite from below (frame 0), the bottom majority of the sprite is invisible.
* When I interact with the sprite from above (frame 1), the sprite appears on top of the player and the top is cut off instead.

The only thing I can think of is it's a problem to do with Free Space, more-so with the latter off-sets? Having said that,despite the ROM not being initially un-used (I did a good bit of scripting etc.), I don't think I got to the 900000s. Idk. :s

I've tried some things so far but nothing seems to have solved it (changing some of the bytes which i felt might be inaccurate. You can see this above or by clicking here.

Thank you. Sorry it's not the typical problems but it's been driving me a bit insane. xD
Fixed it. I inserted a new palette too. The only problem now is that the sprite doesn't move/some of the frames aren't working however I've encountered this problem before and hopefully I can fix it again. ^.^ If anyone has any comments I'd appreciate it though.

I have problem with DNS. Okay, so I made a level script cutscene. After the trainerbattle, the day and night system doesn't work, and it reverts to original. After warping away (through the level script action), the Day and Night system works again (I'm using JPAN engine btw).


In addition, how do I edit the animation of the Waterfall?

There are two maps for Saffron City. What's the difference between them, and which one should I use (if it matters)?

If you have disabled the DAN in battles, it will bug afterwards...

You must research the Waterfall tiles via logging in VBA-Development.

I tried enabling DAN in battle as well, and it's still like that.

I believe Kurapika's G3T's Anti-Exploud can help you with that.

I also added a 2nd tool, Anti-Exploud, it is meant to help hackers easily replace some pieces of text, mainly for decapitalisation
Though I haven't tried that yet however.
Just remember to save some back-ups of your ROM.

The first Saffron City map (3.10) is the one which you use in game while the second one (3.11) has no scripts attached and is used to make the connecting routes (5, 6, 7 and 8) appear connected to the city from their perspective. If you stand as close as you can to Saffron City while on those routes you might be able to see one or two tiles from 3.11, but other than that it doesn't have any purpose. I have no idea why GameFreak thought making a replica Saffron City was better than extending the routes one or two tiles in width/ height.

And no, there no real need to use one over the other unless you want to save 3.10's scripts and events :P

Well each move has a script attached. So you will need to go to EVERY move and remove the criticalhit routine from it using BSP.

Anyone know why my advanced map connection isn't working? They are both lined up on both sides of the connection (from the town to the route and from the route to the town the connections are fine).

When I walk from the town to the route there is no problem, but when I walk from the route to the town there is an invisable wall. Any reason why this is happening? I checked the connection from the route to the town and there is a connection there so I have no idea why this is happening.

Using a-map 1.95 you get errors. I explain this everyday: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=7781039&postcount=304
So open in a-map 1.92, go to the header tab, and where it says map connections write 00000000. Then go to another map and back to this one. Then edit the connections to what they previously were, and it will repoint for you. test

Check your connections and see if there are "offset" values on the offset field.

Oh, well, if you're just starting a hack, you might as well use 11bayerf1's FR ROM Base.

Whenever I try to insert overworlds in nse, the palette seems to change between the frames, messing up all the other frames. Does anyone know how to retain the same palette for each frame?

You have to keep the palette the same for each sprite. So go in irfanview and check each palette. if they are different just export 1 and import to the rest.

If your working with 16x32s, you can actually make sheets and directly insert them into the rom uncompressed, and then just do some quick table editing. Then you only have to deal with one palette.

I'm still having problem with DNS. Even when I set DAN in battle, the day and night system still won't work after a trainerbattle (during a script).

Without DAN in battle.


With DAN in battle

I was making new maps and connections in Advance Map (hacking Fire Red) and the connections were working fine when I tested them in game. Then I tried to add a new map (accidentally added it to the starter town... not sure how to add to a different map bank or delete that new map now). Anyhow, now when I test in game (even though I've triple checked all map connections) I can't leave the starter town. I try to walk out to the next map and it freezes and I have to exit the VBA. Not sure what happened. Can anyone help?

Also, when trying to go to the events tabs on one of my maps, I got this error code: "Pokemon Advance Map "Index of the scanning line exceeded the range. (384)" I can still go to the events tabs of other maps I have. Can anyone tell me what this code is, and how I can fix it please?

Thanks!

Hi, can anyone answer me question?
Why do I always get this glitchy tile even though I followed the tutorials.


I don't get it. I've tried to delete some parts of it to make it smaller.

I want to replace the ??? -type in my game with the fairy type.
I also need to change the super-effective or not very effective attacks in my game.
Is there a way to do this?
