WindHex is nice because it supports two table files at one time and it even comes with a table creating utility.

Is there a way to add overworlds to ruby without replacing the already existing ones? If so how?

That should help me a bit thank you!

I have another question.

Is there a way of adding more trainer sprites without replacing the ones already in the game?

I don't see why not. The way trainer data is set up (if my memory serves me right) you can point the trainers sprite to any location. Then again I may be totally wrong. Its been a while since I looked a the trainer data. Theres a lot of unused sprites that you can replace though. Adding new ones without replacing old ones is just impractical.

Question has been asked before, but I can't find it using various keywords in the search box and I'm not about to go through 321 pages manually, so:

1. Scripts are messing up. Someone had helped me with that but I've intelligently lost the entire hack yesterday so I can't offer further info, but I'll give some on this: there aren't much changes, only what things/people say. I'm using XSE, not a-text, and still the script from one thing transfers to another: part of the string from the town sign transfers to the end of '[RIVAL]'s house'. If I delete the attached string, the town sign will be blank.
Sometimes--for example, the guy in Viridian City who tells you about the kinds of caterpillar pokemon--his script messes up when I change the strings in XSE, but when I replace it back with the original and change it with a-text instead, it works fine and he doesn't say what I haven't typed. What is with this on-off screwage?
Edit: Sorry! Ahh, it's not a trainer. Just a talking sprite--and by inserting a new sprite, I mean making a new person event. Sorry again about the confusion!

2. I've had the experience of the game crashing upon checking player stats, probably because I've inserted a new sprite a kind person told me--I can tell from the lack of similar posts about this problem that this doesn't happen normally. If it's not an inserting sprite problem, what can it be?

Thankyou~

What about a TM editor? I know I could replace an existing TM attack, but that would mean getting rid of it.

A TM Editor does, well, edit TMs, not add more. I dunno, but you might be able to add more by repointing the whole thing and adding onto the end like you do with moves...:\

Oh, I didn't want to add more. I just wanted to switch them around, so this one wouldn't be a TM, but this one is. You know? Ahh, don't worry. I don't think I can explain it properly. x3
Thanks for replying to my question, anyway.

I think I get it. You want, say, Fire Punch instead of maybe Fire Blast in the TMs, for example? Darthatron has a tool that can do that.

It seems for both problems you are overwriting data without realising it. Make sure you have the "Abort if too large" option checked in UNLZ and make sure refactoring is ticked in XSE when you edit scripts.

By 'inserting new sprite' I meant making a new player event. Sorry about the confusion! But I've used UNLZ too and made sure to do that, though this problem existed before I ever found out about that program.

I've checked refactoring now. I hope it makes a difference, thanks for your answer!

Also: Does anyone know where script 18DC9B may be? Apparently, says A-text, that's the part after Prof. Oak brings you into his lab (in fire red). The script is messed up there but I can't find any instance of it on A-map, I can only edit it on A-text but it'll start getting a string from the rival (the one before you attempt to leave pallet). This must sound confusing, but--anyone know how I can un-mess up the script, if not on a-text?

I believe 18DC9B is a text pointer, not a script. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that would probably be the source of the messed up script.

There's a level script in Oak's Lab. Go the the Map Header section in AM and the Map Script thing, click the scroller until the script 2 appears. It should be a "0x2 Validates load to..." type.

18DC9B is a location in the ROM. Its part of the text in the starter Pokemon script. I'm not sure what it is you are asking for.
