CrystalStatic's Resources


Hiya, PokéCommunity!
I've decided to post my ROM Hacking Resource things in their own thread instead of keeping them all separate on the old Resources thread. I will update this thread as I put out new stuff~


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pokémon Icon Sprites


This is a list of all Pokémon icon sprites from generations five (Unova), six (Kalos), and all existing mega-evolutions. All of these sprites are compatible with Wichu's Advanced Pokemon Icon Editor & karatekid552's Gen III ROM Hacking Suite~

NOTICE: These sprites do not have a second frame to them. However, MrDollSteak now is creating/accepting these icon sprites with second frames. If you are looking for icons with second frames, head over to MrDollSteak's Gen VI DS-Style 64x64 Sprites thread.


GENERATION 5
Spoiler:
Example:


Download - http://www.mediafire.com/download/bo...emon_Icons.rar


GENERATION 6
Spoiler:
Example:


Download - http://www.mediafire.com/download/pl...emon_Icons.rar


MEGA-EVOLUTIONS
Spoiler:
Example:


Download - http://www.mediafire.com/download/fc...Evolutions.rar

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Video Tutorials

This is a list of my step-by-step video tutorials on ROM hacking in general. These videos range from inserting OW sprites, animating tiles, indexing images, and so on.

Your welcome! Make sure to tell me if you come across any errors with the sprites. I'm pretty sure they're completely ironed out now, so everything should be good to go. :)

Thank you for your resources. Now for tile animations do you know where I can find tiles that can be animated?

Any tile can be animated, it's just a case of (assuming you watched the animating tile video) putting the 8x8 tiles in a left-to-right order in the tileset.

Please, please, please! More videos! Preferably, scripting videos!

Anyways, thanks for this! Been needing a thread like these. People should post more video tutorials like this. Especially the tips & tricks in using various tools and resources for ex. the key shortcuts for the tools, etc.

I usually only make videos when I learn something new that I want to share with the community (and when I'm really bored :P). But I'll try to get more out soon.

Yes, I do. I haven't put them up though, because I've sort of been busy lately. It's finals week, so you know the routine. -_-

Nevertheless, I'll try to get them up for you soon! :3

Not sure what you mean by 'red blocks' in APE, you should provide screenshots. Even thinking about it though, I'm not sure what the problem could be. If you need help with figuring out what palettes to use (the number), ask away here: http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=284

You can post your APE problem in that thread as well~

Oh, that's what you mean. The red blocks are just part of the palette, just like the black ones. It's just one of the colors that the palette uses.

No, not the colors of the palette. I mean red in the background of the number of the color.
It tells me that it's not safe to change the palette but I still need to change it and if I change it, the game will have error and glitch in the beginning.

for example: I want to change the hero sprite but I can't change the palette because it's not safe to change it and when I change it the game freezes.
Spoiler:
This red background: prntscr[.]com/3ob9s2

There are a lot of red backgrounds and I can't change in NSE because it doesn't support emerald so I don't know where can I change palletes.

I'm sorry CrystalStatic for all the trouble, I didn't check Lz77 and that was my only problem.

I'm trying to change sprites in emerald but NSE doesn't support Emerald. sprites like the boy and girl using pokemon sprite.
