Unless he was trying to insert Gary over the Charmander, that statement is no help to this situation.

Hi all!
I followed this tut on how to edit Pokemon Gold with a hex editor
pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=120374

But it's two parts I really can't understand... :S

Firstly
Quote:
00 87 A4 AB AB AE E7 - This text will say "Hello!" But it is wrong.
When I use an online ASCII to Hex converter, This isn't "Hello!", but just some strange letters/signs
And when I try to use the Hex numbers from the online converter (from the word "Hello!") it says that this is the correct hex numbers
48 65 6c 6c 6f 21

But when I try that in-game it shows up the same strange things as when I try to convert 87 A4 AB AB AE E7 to ASCII.
So how do I know what to type in the Hex editor, to know that it's going to say actually like in this example, "Hello!" and not just lots of weird letters?

And my second question is...
Quote:
The pointer you wrote down, You will now need it. Open up Calculator in accessories, and click on the "Hex" bullet. Type in the first byte of the 4 digit pointer( 1 byte = 2 digits) type in A0 , then click on the "Dec" Bullet and you get "160". Do the same for the second byte, type in 65 and get 101.
How does he know that you should exactly use A0 and 65? I can't see where he gets those numbers from... :S
But still it works ingame though...

Please help me!

And sorry if my english is bad... It's usually not, but I'm too tired to think of what to say and how to type it, lol :P


Thanks in advance!

The .ips and.ups files aren't roms, They are patches that you apply to a ROM file.
You have to download the ROM yourself, try gogling for it is agaisnt the rules to post them on the site, then use a program like LIPS ( Lunar IPS) to patch the file onto the ROM.

thanks alot, i already have the roms i just didn't know how to patch.

Pokémon Gold does not use ASCII. Use the table file attached to this post to see which bytes correspond to which letters. If you’re using a hex editor that can load table files (Windhex, for instance), you can type letters into the rightmost pane and have the bytes automatically be converted.

You can use unlz. Go to an image and make the write data screen come up. Change the image and palette offsets to free space, but leave fix pointers unchecked. The original image is just fine and you have the data for the new one inserted. PEP (Pokemon Editor Pro) by Darthatron can change the offset used for a front sprite, back sprite, and palette.

The last 12 8x8 blocks are animation blocks so just don't insert tiles over them.

Hey onyx79,
Look, it seems the problem is that you imported the Gary sprite OVER the Charmander sprite, correct?
Well, that's fine, but it looks like the Gary sprite still has the Charmander palette,
You must have done everything right to have the image there, but you didn't replace the sprites palette when you replaced the image.
The only thing i can suggest, is import the Gary sprite over a different Pokemon,
And then click 'write to rom'
Then in the box, tick the top two, 'import image' and the 'auto abort if the file is too big'.
Then if it writes with no problems, click it again, but this time, untick 'import image'
And tick 'import palette'.
If that doesn't work, then i'm out of ideas, i'm not brilliant at importing sprites, but i manage alright.
Hope i helped.

Maybe the problem is your rom...
Try using a clean rom
--------------------------------
I have a question, when changing the palettes at A-Map, how can I change the palette of the house and the pokemon center below:


Kyledove's Wesley FG's

The palette is unexact if you scroll the bar in A-Map when changing the palettes.

I mean the roof's palette is 118, 143, 182. So you need to change the palette in A-Map into that palette. In A-Map, when you scroll it to 112, next is 120. My question is can I change the palette into 118?

A bit confusing isn't it?
