Hey, I have a question. I am working on my first Rom, and I FINALLY discovered how to make pokeballs give pokemans. Now...

How do I make it so I don't have to run Oak's Parcel in this one???

(Fire red)

...Oak doesn't exist in this hack....

Advise??
Just make a new script. Make sure you're using XSE from gamer2020's toolbox, and advance map 1.92. Then follow diegoisawesome's XSE tutorial: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cceae20848ci6lq/diegoisawesome%27s%20xse%20tutorial.pdf

What you probably want to do is replace and clean every script when you are editing maps, except you really want them to be there. Most of the time people are editing the whole rom and have no interest in old scripts(Such as the parcel thingy)
You then want to write your own scripts to create events, quests, triggers, and so on and so on.
If you want to leave everything as it is you might get away with only deleting the scripts needed for the parcel which should not involve map scripts as i suppose(You want to get rid of them anyways, just look into the advanced header view of advance map)

Edit: Whoa, my browser did not show me the last page but it seems the answer has already been given, epic fail

To know which Var numbers to use, I recommened using this link.

http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=7563059&postcount=24067

What I do is I keep track of every flag and variable I use, so I never reuse the same ones.

yeh i keep a list too pretty useful ... ur link mainly tells me what not to use >.< bt this seems a little more conclusive http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=302347 bt thanks anyways ... so does that mean var numbers for scripts like level scripts are the same as vars u use in person event scripts eg. 0x4000 0x0??

Yes that is correct

A varuable is a variable no matter what, you can use 0x4000 0x0 for a person script but then you can use 0x4000 0x1 for a level script if you want (as long as it doesn't interfear with the other script that you wrote.)

After 209 is 20A, yes, and after 20F is 210.
And then, 210 to 219, then 21A to 21F, and then 220.

...and so on and so forth~ :3

Just to let you know, this is an easy way to think of it.

In the world of video games, everything is in binary, and so all every little bit, (0x1, 0x2 ,0x3) is broken down into (0 0 0 0). There are 16 possibilities for those 0's to mix with 1's. (meaning we can have (0 0 0 1, 0 0 1 0, 0 0 1 1, 0 1 0 0 ... ). So that means every value can count up to 16.

So it would go like 0x0, 0x1, 0x2, 0x3, 0x4, 0x5, 0x6, 0x7, 0x8, 0x9, 0xA, 0xB, 0xC, 0xD, 0xE, 0xF

There is 16 opptions there.

Just imagin for every diget there are 16 possiblities. That's how I see it anyway. It makes understanding flags and variables a little bit easier I find.

Didn't come here to run you down or anything, but just to confirm what is false about what you said.

Every hexadecimal digit (0, 1, 2, ..., D, E, F) is described in binary with 4 bits.

Code:
binary = hex (dec)
---------------------
0000 = 0
0001 = 1
0010 = 2
0011 = 3
0100 = 4
0101 = 5
0110 = 6
0111 = 7
1000 = 8
1001 = 9
1010 = A (10)
1011 = B (11)
1100 = C (12)
1101 = D (13)
1110 = E (14)
1111 = F (15)
Now if we for example wanted to describe the hexadecimal number 6B in binary, that would be:

Code:
binary = hex (dec)
---------------------
0000 = 0
0001 = 1
0010 = 2
0011 = 3
0100 = 4
0101 = 5
0110 = 6
0111 = 7
1000 = 8
1001 = 9
1010 = A (10)
1011 = B (11)
1100 = C (12)
1101 = D (13)
1110 = E (14)
1111 = F (15)
0110 1011

That is how you convert between hexadecimal and binary easily.

Hey Guys.
I'm Hacking Fire Red and I'm running Windows 7

Question 1.
I'm struggling to index Trainer Sprites.
I want to use some Gen IV and Gen V trainer sprites and also a couple custom ones.

Where can I either get a Windows 7 Sprite indexing tutorial and/or has someone indexed Gen IV/V trainer sprites already?

Question 2.
Is it possible to use Gen IV/V overworlds?

Thanks Guys

1) Indexing is super easy. My favorite tool is gimp. Just change the mode of the the image to indexed (in the top 'image' menu). Reduce it to 16 colors (there will be a prompt), and then, right-click on the image itself, go down to 'colors' and then 'rearrange colors' (or something of that nature, and drag the bg color into the first slot. Then export. Not terrible.

2) Yes. NSE Classic is the tool to insert them, and you can probably find the sprites themselves in Spriter's Resource or by doing a little NARC exploring and ripping them yourself (it isn't hard, and was one of the very first things I did in rom hacking).

Anyone know how to find the location of the behavior scripts? I'm using JPAN's engine and the pointers are not at 1A3000. SO I would like to manually find them.

Ok, 1 you find the palette in the rom and change it to your sprite's colors.
2. You probably overwrote old data thus corrupting your ROM. Remember, always repoint to free space after 720000

The behavior scripts? Like the ones that display messages? Either way, just search for those bytes that are usually there in a normal rom and find them in your rom.

2: When working on your ROM, use space after 720000. Anything before that is used by gamefreak, so if you use it, you get these corruptions in your ROM

It might not be fixable by unlz or other tools since it's stuck in gamefreak's code. I've seen this happen before, but that's after using offsets that don't unclude FF's

You can find those sprites in NSE in the bookmarks.

Try NSE classic. I think the bookmarks have both. Just REPOINT TO FREE SPACE AFTERWARDS SO YOU DON'T OVERWRITE.

EDIT: ^ ^ He beat me

SPOILER THOSE IMAGES. BOTH OF YOU. PLEASE.

Now, I know how to fix those sprites, you aren't the first to have that issue. However, it is quite complex. So, I will write a tut soon on how.
