Can you post a quick snapshot of that tileset? I don't have a Ruby on me currently.

I've searched around extensively for an answer, but how would one go around editing the text in a Pokemon Blue ROM? The hex editors I've tried don't work on Blue, and as for programs, can only find ones related to text editing for the Advanced versions.

Thanks a lot!

Hex editors are not specific as to which version (or even which game) they work for.

You just need to find a Blue version table file, which is effectively a translator that displays the hex code as English (on parts that include text).

The following attachment should work. Just extract the .tbl file from the .zip file, load up the Blue ROM in the hex editor, then open the table file (method differs depending on your hex editor), and search for the text you want to change!

Hi, I've been lucky enough so far to actually have all the tools I need (up until now) and to actually have the brain to try some trial and error with hacking the Advance games... but I think I just ran out of luck ^^;

Now, I've been working on tilesets (please hear me out) and my problem is not inserting a new tileset, no, my problem is actually that I cannot edit the block data. I've saved the block data for my tileset with the extension ".bvd" in AdvanceMap and now I can't find a tool that edits that data, nor do I know the format (if I did, I'd have made my own editor... and I fail at hacking formats ^^; ) I HAVE SEARCHED THE FORUMS, AND Q&A TOPICS FOR AN ANSWER! (sorry but I wasn't yelling, people don't always read the entire post... at least capitals are read) but I yielded no result... I'd really like to edit the block images...

Thanks in advance.

This is the said tileset which I think is unused:

I promise you that I am looking through an unmodified Ruby ROM. Check for yourselves if you don't believe me. Are these unused?

That's interesting...
Sure it's not anywhere?

Well, it's simple. Just sort the maps by Tileset number, and you'll see that not a single map uses tileset 37.

Thanks for the .tbl file! I'm having a bit of trouble, though - which hex editor would be best to open it up with? Translhextion doesn't seem to like the file.

Does anyone know if there is an unused tileset like this in fire red?

What, beta tiles? There isn't up to 59 I think... I didn't check further. I will be though.

35 looked weird... Might be unused, but look like the binocular stands, but say are unused...

I've always used Hexecute, personally. It hasn't been updated in a long time, but it still works. You can grab it from most places with hex editors.

Er, this may have been answered somewhere after the 3rd page (I really am inpatient, and I apoligise.), but how do I have someone speak before a battle? I can't script at all (Please don't tell me if I can't script, I shouldn't be here... it happened before) So, is there any simple thing I can do?

In scripts, how do you check where an OW is faced?

I am not 100% sure what you are asking but I am guessing you want to change the direction they face, as in turning around to look behind them without moving.

In Fire Red you want to use the following values with the applymovement function.
Spoiler:
01 = Look up
02 = Look left
03 = Look right
04 = Look down

don't forget to use your waitmovement function afterwards. I am not sure about the values for Ruby, but I am guessing they are the same.

Well, that's not what he was asking. He means, is there a way, just like with compare 0x800C (aka PLAYERFACING) to check for an OW which way they are facing. And as far as I know, that can't be done. Well, it's probably stored in the RAM somewhwere, which means you could check it with a simple compare. But I'm not sure about that.

Only by removing moves from other pokemon. A method I do is go through each Evolved Pokemon, as they have moves that are listed twice, so just delete the copies that are set at Level 1 (ie a Blastoise with Water Gun at Lv 1 and Lv 9, delete the Lv 1 move, and that allows you to place a move on another.)

I have a problem. I think my ROM is stuffed up. x3
It's got a lot of stuff on it that I don't wanna delete, but whenever I start it up, it comes to a white screen. (I have saved files so I just go into them and it works), but does this mean that if I give an .IPS file to someone, they will get the white screen if they try to patch it too? And does anyone know how I can fix the white screen? D:
