So I always forget to write down offset for images and table repointing . And if you've done that, then you know how terrible it can be trying to change it on a later date, or to add stuff to an ini file. Well today I bring you a solution to that issue. The Advanced Offset! It will automagically find common table and image pointers!

Features:
Finds over a certain number of offsets magically for you!
Magical ini creation powers!
Yea thats about it. :-/
Supports Fire Red and Emerald!

Screenshots:
Spoiler:


Bugs/Things you may not like
You must revert the header code that G3HS gives your ROM to be able to see updated ini.
You cannot open a new ROM without closing the whole program, sorry its just the way I set it up.
Battle Backgrounds arent implemented yet as I don't have time for it right now
Thats it....

Downloads
Source Code

v1.2.1
Download

V1.1.2
Download

V1 Mediafire---DropBox

Planned Features
Ini support to make it future proof/to allow people to change what things display what.
ini creation.
More offsets!!!!!!!

This is an interesting idea for a tool! It would be neat if it could generate copy-pastable INI files for tools such as G3HS for users who don't understand how to do so manualy.

That's actually a pretty nice tool. But you know what would make it even better? An ability to generate INIs for various hacking tools like PGE, G3T, UTE, G3HS and other popular ones. What do you think?

Well lucky for all you guys I got some time this morning to add an ini creation button. Simply have your G3HS or PGE ini in the same folder as Advanced Offset, and BOOM!!! Updated ini.
Note to peeps:
Spoiler:
Please take note that for G3HS the ini is changed for the base Fire Red/Emerald Rom so you will be required to remove the additional header code at the end of your Rom(0xfffffe) to be able to see updated ini effects. this will be changed at a later date when I figure out a clean efficient method to edit the special ini header that G3HS gives you.

I forgot all about this! This will come in handy, too, since I'm testing this.
