I have a problem, when I try to warp maps, it just goes to a random map, and when I go back to the map I was working on, it says there is no events, for this map, but I saved, I want to make a warp to the inside of the heroes house, on Fire Red, so I made a new map, and this keeps happening. Can somebody help me?

I'm a little confused about making warps between maps with Advance map.
I figured that there would be warps between each and every map. For example, in the Pallet Town map, I thought that there would be warps that you would step on at the top of Pallet Town to take you to route 1, and vice versa.
But when I look at the events, there is nothing there! Is there a way to, say, change the 'exit' of Pallet town to be, for instance, on the right side of the map instead of the top? If I am going to make a hack with all different maps, I need a way to change the map entrances. Do they even use warps? I don't see how moving from city to route is handled by the game, or whether it's possible to change it.

i don't think you can in advance-map. U can edit them using a program included with poke-tronic though...I don't really know if that is applicable to creating new ones though....

Warp unknown 3 is for the on player step event

If you leave the unknown at 0 sometimes the warp may not work as desired.

Does this make sense? Some of my warps don't seem to work. An example: You know the hole you use for caves that you walk into enter the cave? Well, I can't come back out. The "Goto" works perfectly on Advanced Map, but when I walk on the warp, it doesn't work. Anyone know what's going on or has had similar problems?

Make sure that in the tile ,with the warp on it, that its behavior is set to warp. Change the unknows for the warp to 3 and if you're doing a lower caves exit set the warp behavior to an arrow and a warp. This should fix both of your problems.

You have to use a map conection on both the route and the town



You must have connections on both the town and the route or else the game won't work the connection properly. Also make sure the both of the maps alighn

You have to edit the script and change the movements.

This is best done in XSE...

I can't really help ,but when you open the script to change the movements make sure you change the players to.
