Ok, I know ive already posted about an error similar to this, but, I just tried to go and use the sprite editor. I opened the folder, and it was gone. I came here and downloaded it again, and it wont let me extract it. When I try to, it says "Cannot move file: Cannot read from the source file or disk" Then a Norton window pops up ans tells me it deleted Suspicious.Cloud.2. Im acctually pretty pissed, because this seems to ALWAYS happen to me. Its not your fault. Its probablly just me being retarded. Any help is appreciated guys :/

Because Norton is *cough*, your only option is to disable it. Not sure if Norton has it, but if there is an Ignore List add the Supsicious.Cloud.2 to it.

I just checked, and I found an exclusions list. I added the files to it, but I get the same thing :c
I scanned the fies in a custom scan, but it says nothing detected. THanks for the help anyway.

Can anybody tell me why the error message continues to show up even after all the proposed solutions have been attempted?

So far I'm using the Icon Editor (as it's all I really need) and it works PERFECTLY for me. I just get the icons for Black and White Pokemon off the internet, extract the individual frames, and put them together in a bitmap in Paint using the greenish background color. Thank you!

Darn... I thought this would work with Pokémon Sapphire >.<
Do you know where I can locate the offsets to write up another ini file for sapphire?

If possible, could someone make an .ini for the Japanese Fire Red roms? Or if its been done, could you post a link? You would be a god if you did.

I have a question about the Advanced Pokemon Sprite Editor. I notice it allows you to edit the sprite's palette, which is helpful, but is there a way to import the palette of an image so I don't have to edit it one color at a time? I already can easily edit the palettes of the images before inserting them, but if the palette is bigger than the one I'm overwriting, I have to use a combination of your program and PokePic.

APSE is really great, except I'm having a problem. Whenever I try to switch to a new sprite to edit and I haven't waited about ten seconds, I get this error, "Data is not LZ77 compressed!". By the way, this is before I do anything to change the sprites I'm trying to switch to, so the original Fire Red sprites are still there. Then I hit "okay" and the program crashes. It usually works fine if I wait for a while before switching to new sprite, but when you're trying to edit 151 sprites this is really time-consuming.

I'm also getting a problem where for no reason, on occasion, the thing totally crashes when I click "write to ROM". It's only happened a few times so far. I finally got an error when I tried to do this, and it's:
"fatal error in gc:
GetthreadContext failed"

Also, sometimes it deletes some of the colours in my palette after I've written it to the rom and check back on it later. For example, this:



Turns into:



And it's always the same kind of change, the first three colours are kept and any after that turn to black.

I've updated my .NET framework, closed every program involving hacking, and it still gives me the "Arithmetic Operation" error. Can somebody please find the cause of this or is APSE just incompatible with 64-bit Windows 7 operating systems?

I have a problem with the icon editor. When I add icons to my extra pokemon (the ones between celibi and hoenn) the last sprite I put in, replaces all of fakemon sprites. How can I stop this!

Nice. When you have, the complete package (to download) does that mean Advance Map or something? Or ones you created on your own?

^ You.
What the..no?
I'm fairly certain there's a thread in the toolbox with "ADVANCE MAP" and the author's name below it. Since you aren't bright enough to look that far, I'm guessing AdvanceMap is working just fine, and there's just a problem with your ROM or there's been a user-error.
Sorry for being blunt. I'm not an ass, I swear.

I try importing Serperior's Sprite (64x64) into Venasuar's place, the sprite's colors are all messed up so I click "Synchronize palettes" and it gives me this error:

"Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

Index was outside the bounds of the array."

I click "Details" and it gives a long error list or something that says:

These tools have been a massive help since I've started.
For some reason UNLZ hates me and never seems to work right, but the advanced series tools are really easy to use, and haven't messed up yet.

By the way, is there a way to change trainer sprites using the advanced tools? If not, are there plans to create such a feature?
