Inserting Titlescreen logos into Fire Red.

What you would need:
  • Your Fire Red Rom.
  • Photoshop (I use CS4, so it might be different for you)
  • unLZ-GBA
  • MS Paint.
  • Visual Boy Advance.
Method:

  • Open your Fire Red ROM in Visual Boy Advance. Go to the titlescreen and wait for the Pokemon Logo to come up. (Excuse the Background, I was messing with it.)

  • Go to the Pallete Viewer, and go to Save BG, and save it as a .act.

  • Now, open unLZ-GBA and go to 2009, 256 colour mode and Black + White.

  • Export the image, and save it to whatever you want.
  • Open the image in Photoshop, then go to Image > Mode > Color Table.
  • Once a small box is up, click "Load", find your Pallete and load it.

  • You should see your image has normal colours, with a green transperant background.
  • Where the old Logo is, replace it with yours. Copy the image from paint, and paste it into Photoshop. The pasted image should turn indexed.
  • Get rid of the white spaces around the pasted Logo with the paint bucket in Photoshop.

  • Once done that, go back to Image > Mode > Color Table and click the list, and hit Grayscale. Press OK.

  • Once you have done that, save it. Import it into unLZ-GBA. If your image is bigger, repoint it.

  • Done! This is what I ended up with:


Fix it up a bit, and you'll be fine son. Add some backgrounds and other stuff, end up with something like this:



Pokemon Shining Silver is lost... I lost it in a format. Sorry guys.

Thank you for looking. Hope this helped you. Feel free to ask any questions. :)

I can genuinely say that this is the best and easiest logo tutorial I've ever seen! Great work!

Thanks for your comments, guys. And maybe one day I might update it with how to change the Background and the Pokemon, but there are other tuts to do that too.

But this tut I could actually understand,so maybe you should make some other titlescreen tuts and beginning tuts because the other ones I saw dindnt make any sense to me.And how did you make the "Zircon" font and get it to blend in,because for me I put a text in from this word art prog. and the letters looked the same but when I grayscaled it,it got mixed up plus the titlescreen doesnt show up anymore,any suggestions?

Well,once again a thread that doesnt present all details on what to do!You fell to explain how to get the letters you want to insert match the palette from the original one,leaving it to look nasty in the game.I tried every step and the word I inserted had some nasty palettes.I wish someone would make a tut that explains everything!!!

Dude, it worked fine for me. Obviously you didn't do the steps properly. Did you change the mode back to Grayscale?

Yeah I did but it turned the same color as the "POKEMON" logo not the gray part that it is supposed to be!!!It only works for me if I erase the version logo other than that the rom breaks when I skip the gamefreak intro,what I think is wrong is that you didn't explain how to make a logo and make the palette the same as the original,other than that everything else works fine,but all tuts leave out certain things.

You use a tilemap editor for the text location and load up the tilemap and text png. For the background I am going to release a tutorial soon

I save the palette as .act. Then when I load it, it's disappeared. I've repeated the process at least ten times and it's just disappearing. Could someone help me?

I know, it's pretty stupid. What I do is just save it as the act anyway or the pal, and change the extension to .act.

Do you HAVE to have Photoshop? I have the Gimp but I didn't find any palette loading feature supporting .PAL or .ACT. Is there some kind of other free program that supports those palettes? Thanks in advance.

Hey i was wondering, when will you post a tutorial for the background,
I used this tutorial, and tried figuring out the background for myself, but i can't quite get it, do you replace the .PNG with the 'Press start, and gamefreak' stuff with a picture then use a tilemap editor to change the way it looks, and then palette edit it?

Happy to help anyone in need of a mapper/OW Spriter.
