Hi there, I'm a new member here. This is a good tut but somehow I got problems:

I tried to create a new bank with maps (new region), then I inserted a map I made before in.
- After I closed AM (saved, of course) and re open it, the map I inserted was gone. Only a big green field remains.

I tried to insert new tileset from another rom (Like, a hacked rom that has bamboo, so I ripped it off with all 12 palettes)
- After I closed AM (saved, of course) and re open it, the palettes are messed up. I did these:
1. Load the tileset.
2. Load all the palettes. (Saved each time)
3. Load the blocks.

But still, the palettes weren't saved at all. Not all 12 palettes, but only palettes 8,9,10 - The parts that I need.

Please answer, I'm sorry if these questions were replied (I didn't find an in this topic tho) if they were, please give me the link to the answers.
Thanks

Click, right palette changes to rom so make the palette changes permanent, before you leave the current map, or else the changes won't be saved to the rom. :3

Don't try deleting maps, it's kinda pointless because what if you have to reinsert them again? And also, it could potentially screw up your rom.

Hi, I'm having problems with changing Prof. Oak's talk when he stops m (at the beggining, the wild pokemon in grass issue...) When I change the text (Hey, stop, wild pokemon live in grass...) Well I put it in certain order, and it disorders again later that I save the scritp...

Well, it has to be scripted in a specific way, or should I add flags or something else...?

By the way, what I'm doing is changing Prof. Oak for Gary Oak xD

Well, there's enough space in the rom to make Fire Red all over again, so I doubt you'll need to. And instead of deleting them, you could resize them to 1x1.

How do you change the behavior of some tiles, like, for computers. it says, "better not touch it," how do you change what is said. In the block editor, it says behavior byte: 82. Where do I find the script it corresponds to?

I've been using Advance Map for a while now, but I don't really do much hacking, so I'm fairly new at it. This tutorial helped me out a lot!

Before this, I only knew how to change tiles, move events, edit walking and wall movement permissions, and add Pokemon. So thanks for making this tutorial!

Hey, I'm a new person here!

I've got a couple questions/problems though.

Since I just jumped into AdvanceMap right from the get go, I had no idea of most of its features. I had the intent of creating brand new maps, not edits, and as a result I had selected the "Create Map" button, and proceeded from there. I've made a couple decent maps with the help of the Block Editor feature or whatever it's called.

Anyways, getting back on point...

- Should these new maps I've created be put in a special folder or something like the "Header" and those three folders that show up on the left side of Advance Map with the already existing maps in order for me to test the game?
- And if so, how do I do that?
- Also I'm making this game in coordination with other people, and is there a way to export/import the edits I've made to the tilesets so that the others working on the hack can have them too?

Sorry for asking so much, but thanks to anyone willing to answer! And I'm sure I'll be back with more questions later...

*Oh and this is a Fire Red ROM by the way, if it helps or not.

Okay, disregard my last post, I've figured everything out.

I just have a simple question... if a map's border were too narrow, could one just shift the map over a couple of "X coordinates" in order to have more room on the left side?

From what I'm reading, I take it that the left side of your map is not in correspondence with the border or that you don't want the player to see the border.
If this is the case I would recommend changing the size of the map's width in the header tab by how many ever you see fit and then moving everything on the map to the right.

Yes, I have to do that. I was just wondering if it was possible to do that someway instead of doing it manually through right-click and whatnot.

And I just hit a roadblock that is more important than anything else right now... I'm connecting two different routes horizontally, but for some reason, they won't connect. I've tried multiple offset numbers and I can't seem to figure it out. According to all my other maps that have worked, they should have no offset, but they're still not working...

When I load the ROM into virtual boy to play it, I notice that some tiles are not affected by the weather alterations I've used in the map. For example, I've used one of the fog/mist weather types and some of the tiles are not affected and they just stand out completely, and the weird thing is is that those tiles were ones that I edited but rather ones already in the ROM.

Hey, this a great tutorial, it's really helped me, but is there way to create and add you're own custom made tiles to the game?

I was wondering, is there away to use Advanced Map for Pokemon Platinum? If there isn't, what do I use to make maps using platinum tiles?
