Definitely hate it when I'm hex editing or working on an expirement that involves hex and I make a small mistake like writing offsets backwards or not documenting what I've changed. Mainly the smaller things make me mad because I overlook them.

I hate it when I mess up things that are simple and when trying to fix my mistakes I don't think about them until the very last second. Case in point: when inserting a routine I needed to change the pointer in Hex Workshop but accidentally changed the pointer to the ASM routine rather than the Script containing the callasm command and I couldn't figure it out for ages!

While this could possibly be my favourite post of all time, is there any chance you could elaborate on what you actually mean by horrible amount of info on anything? I'm interested to see what you feel is complicated, especially when ROM Hacking has been immensely simplified over the past 5 years.

R&D is full of interesting threads that were over years yet were so short... That amazes me that in 5 years nothing new was really done... EXAMPLE: advancemap 1.95 beta is still beta... no 1.95 release or 1.96 in sight, I would think a 2.0 release might be something that would happen in 2014, but Lu-Ho Quit hacking and he either told people not to take over the project or nobody decided to...

A-Map hardly needs an update, we should be happy that we have a tool that allows us to actually do the maps. Go back just a little longer and you'll see that people didn't even have map editors and mapping was done in a hex editor. Take it from someone who has been around a while, ROM Hacking has vastly progressed over the past five years. When I began my first hack people would have laughed if I had said that I wanted a Day and Night or a Physical/Special system. Maybe if someone else hasn't done enough research on something that you would like to implement then you should look into it yourself and be the innovator. Maybe I'm old fashioned but I don't believe anyone these days should discredit the amount of information available to them when you can go back 5 years and we'd be laughing at the notion of half the stuff that is freely available these days.

When I insert a script then ♥♥♥♥s up the rom and I don't know how to fix it. More ♥♥♥♥ed up if I have no back up, that's a pain.

No need for the swearing To be completely honest with you you would have to do something completely catastrophic in your script to mess the ROM up beyond repair, so I can't really see where you're coming from. It's probably a rule of thumb that if you are inserting anything that has even a minor chance of corruption that you should make atleast one backup.

Insertion of new tiles is the devil. I still don't get it. I have a go at it, fail, get more frustrated than I've ever been, put it away for a while, then repeat the process. (All the time renewing the "frustrated than I've ever been.")

Lol more specifically tilesets. You wanna add just one more different looking tree or maybe a fence but no every 8x8 possible is taken. xP I'm a little nervous for my rom actually since I have to use a-map 1.92 for emerald for when I insert new tilesets... eventually I'm gonna run out of offsets to repoint stuff and then I'll be screwed because I can't repoint new map sizes or tileset insertions to any offsets that are in the extended part of the rom which sucks ... hopefully I can find a bypass of this later

Right now, probably inserting graphics like a titlescreen or battle backgrounds and getting just a white screen when testing.
