I can't seem to figure out how to insert script into my hack. I already checked out the tutorials, and I can't seem to find out how to do it. Since the conventional method didn't work, I figured out a way that creates a .buf file, but when I try to open my rom to load them into it, bufrite freezes. Does anyone know how to fix this?

On another topic, I was wondering if anyone could supply me with a revised .ini folder that is made so that the programs will be usable with a fire red rom?

Edit: For those of you who are wondering how I made the .buf file, here's how I did it:
1. Put the script into pokescript
2. Click encode
3. Select my fire red rom
That's how it creates a .buf file.

Try this:
-Write your script with Notepad and save it as a .rbc file.
-Right-Click the file and click the option that says "Compile Script". This opens Pokescript and Buf Rite to begin inserting your script.
-In the Buf Rite window, select all the script names and then go to File> Destination. Select your ROM and click OK.
-Now click the notebook icon, which should bring up the search window.
-Click the flashlight icon in this window and it will bring up addresses to which you can write your script. Pick the top one and press the reserve button. This closes the search window and applies addresses to each script.
-Now go to File> Burn. Things should click and whirr for a second, and then you will see the log.
-Click back to the Offsets tab and take note of the address next to the top scriptname; this is the address you'll need to use for the NPC/Map you're applying the script to.

What I meant by "the conventional method" is right-clicking and selecting compile script. I can't figure out how to get that option working.

Edit: I already tried the tutorials, and it didn't work, so don't suggest that.

You have to make sure that your file is a .rbc, otherwise it won't work as per normal. Be sure to set the "Save as Type" setting to "All Files", then label your script file with .rbc at the end.

I made sure that it was a .rbc file, and it still didn't work.

1. Yes, although to get the sprite in, you'll need to figure out how to uncompress them from their strange Red/Blue compression. Ask Coolboyman how to fix their glitchiness.
2. Stuff you find in Rock Smash Rocks.
3. Yes, but some tiles will be missing, and probably make the map look retarded, unless you're using Emerald tiles. I'd just create it from scratch.

Uh, before I answer, can I just ask why you're hacking both Red and Fire Red at the same time?

This question is going to be pretty broad, but I can't find a good place to ask it so I might as well try here.

1. Where can I find tools that I can use to hack 1st generation Pokemon games?
2. Also, if people are willing to help me this far, do you know of any useful tutorials for the recommended programs?

I'm just starting out on hacking 1st generation and I can't find much help for it, so hopefully you guys can help me out.

Then...1. Why do you need DP Pokemon?
2. There's no MissingNo. in Shiny Gold...
3. Why edit Rock Smash Pokemon?
4. Why do you need an emerald map in SG? It would screw up the events, and I'm taking it you probably aren't going to script.

Okay, so anyway while I was working on my hack I decided to start a new game to test a script I had inserted at the beginning, and I noticed that when I try to load the game in Visual Boy Advance it freezes on startup. However, it can still load saved games. Also, Visual Boy Advance has no trouble starting up other games, and it was able to load the ROM before.

I did not change anything at all since it last worked, all I did was edit Smoochum's stats in poke-edit pro and add in a few signposts and a person who could only be talked to, nothing else.

Does anyone know what I could have done to screw up my game? Any help would be appreciated, if anyone has any clue on what to do.

There are tuts for doing the 2nd question all over the Documents and Tutorial Section. Look there carefully

As for the first thing, it has been answered in the Shiny Gold Help Thread. Yes, Trade Evolving Pokemon evolve differently in ShinyGold.

Nope, there isn't any way that's known of how to do that.

You could repoint the palette table and add another one to the end. But it may end up being a bit more complicated than it sounds.

I'm hacking Pokemon Gold, and I'm making a Special Pikachu Edition remake.
Well, that's what I want to do, but currently, it's just a Red/Blue remake.

I want to put the Blue/Red songs in Gold.

What is the music offset for each?

I recently switched to XSE, but I still don't get how to insert the script. Do I have to go do it the same way (which isn't working for me) or is there some alternate method?
