These are really great tools. I especially love your sprite editor, it's so much easier than using unLZ and repointing data. The autoposition button on the position editor is really nice, too. Great work with these. (even though it was a long time ago now)

Uhm, I think I've found a bug. I'm trying to put Mesprit into a hack, and I directly followed the palette (as in re-making the bitmap from only the colors in palette), but it always says that the colors aren't all from one palette... If it counts for anything, I'm trying to overwrite Articuno in a Ruby ROM...

Nevermind, I figured it out. In PDN, I had the transparent background, and there was 1 pixel that had an extremely transparent color (next to blank) and the game wouldn't recognize it... Soo, it's fixed... YAY!

If you are using Photoshop or GIMP, or any other high-end painting programs, make sure everything is set to eliminate the chance of a transparency.

(Photoshop users can click+Hold on the Paintbrush, and change it to pencil, eliminating some transparency issues, GIMP can just use Pencil tool...)

Erasers too, (Photoshop users, set your Eraser to "Pencil Mode" and GIMP users should set the affected strength of the eraser to MAXIMUM, and that there isn't a transparency channel...)

While attempting to change a palette in a Firered romhack, I got an unhandled exception, caused by arithmetic operation resulting in an overflow, if the error message is to be trusted.

Is this an error caused by trying to edit a romhack, an error caused by my laziness in not updating anything on my computer, or something else entirely? I get the error message when I try to write anything to the rom, whether changing a sprite or changing a single color on a palette.

Details enclosed in spoiler.

Amazingly enough, there's a tool for that already. It's called unLZ.gba. :>

Yes, I know that but It is hard to do with Unlz gba. If there is a tool for those thing it would be ease. What do you think?

Making a tool to make what we do with unlz.gba would be a nightmare. Now that these tools are out, the only thing we really need unlz.gba for (in Pokemon ROM hacks) is to do things with tilemaps. Besides the fact that using unlz.gba isn't hard at all to use. Just because it's not been updated, and doesn't have the nice things that this tool has, doesn't mean it should be eradicated or replaced. In other words: don't be lazy, and learn how to use unlz.gba

Think you can be specific and help us help you?
May I present to all a nice little thing i would like to call: "The Standard of Bug Reports".
When abreviated in part it is "The SOBR" (S-oh-bur --XD sober, like, not drunk....)
Things that might help us help you

Error Code Number (If available):
Error Description:
--EG: did you get the "send" and "don't send" box and nothing else? If not, then post the message in the box.
Activity Description:
--Not nescesary, but could easily help us find the location of error in the code.
--EG: I clicked on compile, then the program crashed with the said error.
Workarounds (If available):
--Alternative solutions of getting around the problem you may have found that will work until the bug is corrected
Program Name:
Program Version Number you have (if available)
Any Other Info:
The SOBR

Here's the css for that if anyone would like it.
Spoiler:

[css-div="margin-left: 25%;width: 50%;border-width: 3px;border-style: solid;border-color: #000;"][class="tcat"][u]Things that might help us help you[/u][/class][css-div="border-width:1px 0px; padding: 5px;border-color: #000;border-style: dashed;"]

I don't mean this to be bighting or anything, but people who report crashes with very generic or vague info is starting to become a trend that bugs me. (lol, it bugs me)
@Cynder- can you give us any of the info in The Sobr?

Have you two installed Microsoft .NET framework 3.5 or later? It's needed for the tools to work.
