Actually I need some help:
On unLZ GBA, when writing sprite to ROM everything works fine, but the moment I try to load RAW to ROM it says Compressed Size is: 154. Which is too big. Aborting.

I don't understand why this happened seeing that my Sprite Pixels are 72x80, multiples of 8 and easily not too big.

I'd appreciate any help!

No, that's the size of the compression size. Just repoint to an offset full of free space.

Hmm, I don't see why you should have to replace the GAMEFREAK logo with the BG, the BG already exists, so we should be able to just overwrite that and then edit the GameFreak/Press Start text seperately.

Anyone know the offset of the Normal FR Background?

@Chevalier: I'm pretty sure that was explained, you have to use FSF and search for the amount of bytes that UNLz gives you when it says that the image is too big, its called repointing.

The BG is part of the press start logo. -___________-

Yeah I just found that out, and that the flames are separate in the offset 141(for me) and also that you can put the pokemon, the press start logo, and the gamefreak logo all on the same layer, and then have different palette map values on the press start, pokemon, etc.

That is what I did. Result:
WELL, I cant post images, but I would show you if I could. (Had to make a new account, to avoid... someone.)

It is kind of a bummer that those blocks are messed up.

Finally! Of all the BG editing tutorials that I have read, this one is the best! Oh, and that glitchy tile thing, I've gotten rid of it!

You're the best!
Thanks!

Great Tutorial!
I know the reason why those glitchy blocks are there. I'm pretty sure they appear from having duplicate tiles in the Tileset. To fix this error, download a Tool called Sphere (Its a game maker) install it and Go File -> Import -> Image to Tile set and It will generate a Tile set AND a tilemap for you. Screenshot the tileset and save it (index it aswell). NTME has a function to impoirt the Sphere TIlemaps (.rmp extension). This will allow you to create a perfect title screen!

I've been having a lot of problems, but most of my questions have already been solved just through reading this topic and thinking a little, so thanks both for the SUPERB tutorial and those that take the time to answer questions.

Instead of messing with that, do the following (well, worked for me anyways):

-Run APE until it gets to the Error 13 thingy. DO NOT QUIT/PRESS OK.
-Open a new text document.
-Jot down each of the 16 values in the bottom palette. Mine were
E003 7956 2F2D BF7F AD35 B418 1F6B A514
9F56 FD41 5A2D FF7F 1348 0D58 1A20 0B4C
-Then just run APE again, reload the original palette (but not your own), and instead type each of the values in the proper boxes at the bottom half. Then proceed as normal.

Hope that works



On a personal issue, I've gotten everything down except my sprite has a couple glitchy spots on it. What's up with that? I already removed the rom, but if I try it again I'll post a picture.

After replacing the palette (and it definitely looks replaced in APE), the colours are still the messed-up original colours.
Edit: My bad I didn't select palette 15 in the drop down menu

They cannot be set at F because you will have blinking stuff all over the place. So, just set it up like this:
You know, I bet that the F is used to flash the "Press Start" text, and replaces it with the transparency that was indexed. I'll take a look at the actual tilemap when I get the chance.
