On advance map, when i try to save a tileset, it sometimes says "Export of this pallete not possible,there are multiple entries for the same color in the pallete"

if someone could help it would be appreciated.
That just means if i am not wrong that there are two of the same colour in the pallete, check every single pallete again.

:My Problem:
i am inserting a tile, which been some time i do them, but there is this problem i encounter now which did not happen the last time, maybe i forgot something.xD

Anyway, i follow Cello tut on this and indexed the image using infranview since the tile pal was above 16, then i use photoshop cs5 to save the pallete,
Then i open AM to load the pallete. The problem i get is that the pallete that was loaded on AM was diffirent then the one i save from photoshop, not all but the top part.. see the image below for more understanding.


On Photoshop


On Advance Map

This is a question,
From Cello tut, the part where we need to indexed the image,
he have the Black and white as the "forced" and transparent ticked,
the problem is that when i do that the pal increase by three so i put the "Forced as none" and unticked the transparency..
will this have any effect on my inserting process?
but still the main problem is the first one..
I hope someone could help me with it.

Regareds,
Ace

I was using pokétext to translate yellow version, but special characters like á and ð don't show up (they turn into "x"). How do I fix this? I looked at a Norwegian version and special characters like that turned into & when viewed with pokétext.

I think the error message speaks for itself. 2 pallette colours are the same, and that is no good, just change one of them by a small amount, and it should let you save the tileset.

Crimson, your issue is hard to understand. If I understand right, there are 2 issues, right?

1. The colour may have changed by 3 to fit the ROM, as all pallettes need to have R, G and B values that are a multiple of 8.

2. I don't really understand this one, I guess you mean that not all colours are added, and the ones that are are in a different order. If so, that may only cause some problems if the order was extremely different to the old pallette (as in, a green is now a brown), but only to old tiles. Otherwise, it is best to manually insert the pallettes, to make sure they are all right.

Is there a hex editor that lets you edit the rom's text directly (automatically translating it to the hex values)? I've been trying out a few different editors and just haven't come across one like that yet.
Mac and Win programs would be equally useful.

USA version doesn't have those characters in its text graphics, so you'd have to edit text graphics (stored, in 1BPP format, at 0x10600, if I'm not wrong), or use the Norwegian version.

Hexeccute supports .tbl files (text table files), but it's not the only one; basically you have to load the table (poke.tbl.txt, rename this file "poke.tbl"; I've added the ".txt", because this site doesn't allow .tbl attachment) and open your ROM, then write data in the right part of the editor ('text area', opposite to the left-located 'hex area'); to find texts you just have to search through the ROM scrolling, or using the built-in Search function (which by the way is a little bit buggy in Hexeccute so you might want to try also some other hex editors).

The Norwegian version doesn't have the characters I need either. I tried using Tile Layer Pro to look at the alphabet in both the Norwegian and English versions, but I couldn't find all of the alphabet in either or the "extra" characters in the Norwegian version (past m or so). Is there another graphics editor you'd recommend?

Thanks, I already knew the table stuff but still (I've been loading my table and then changing the text by editing the hex side, because the hex editor I was using didn't allow editing of the text side. I'm just getting tired of writing hex numbers).
I tried Hexeccute just now, but the non-working search function makes it difficult to use for me (I search a lot!). I'll look for more editors again, I guess...

you have to change the PAL manually,I think because IrfanView saves the pal differently.
And,hereby repeating the question,because I really need an answer.
'what are the offsets for the 1st,3rd,4th and 6th firered tile palletes?'

TLP works perfectly fine with GameBoy games, in my opinion.
Look at the image in the spoiler: if you notice there is blank space between the alphabet and the symbols/numbers. I gave a look at Yellow Usa version, and Red Norwegian version (couldn't find yellow norwegian version). You can add 32 new letters/symbols in a "Usa version", and 23 in a Norwegian version game, it seems.
Spoiler:


About text-hex editors, I've heard that Windhex and Translhextion are good ones (although I could never get Translhextion working)

Thanks, I was on the wrong format, haha.... Windhex works great too, it's just what I was looking for.

I have a question, I did some searching and couldn't find anything about what I want.

I want to increase the shiny pokemon rate, for all pokemon. I dont want to create one shiny pokemon encounter or anything like that, I just want to change the shiny pokemon rate. Right now it's 1/8192, well I would like it to be more like 8/8192 or 1/1024 or maybe 1/512.

--------

also, whats the best tool to re-organize the pokedex? Moving the pokemon within the dex so I have have a custom region.

I need help.
I've hacked Pokemon HG as much as I want to, and now I want to import the NARCS to my HG Rom. I've edited every Trainer, some Pokemon Data, Wild Pokemon and Gyms.
Which NARC's do I need? and where can I find them?

I doubt there is, but is there a command that removes a Pokémon from your party? Like, the first one or something?

Try Team Snag'em's Pokédex Order Editor - it should be somewhere in 'Toolbox.'
Now I have a question:

I'm planning to try something rather ambitious. Would it be possible to insert full size 100x100 .GIF Pokémon sprites from B/W (the ones that move) into Emerald?
If so, where do I start?

If you mean the full 20-frame sprites, I doubt you will be able to do that. I could be wrong, though.

I'm almost certain that it CAN be done with ASM, but will the GBA engine be able to support it?

And also, does anybody know how to resize sprites? I'm hoping to change the size from 64x64 to 80x80 or even 100x100.

Unless you can make 2 sprites appear as 1 pokemon in the correct positioning, it has to be 64X64

Tile Layer Pro and Yellow version errors:

Sprites stored at the "top" of the ROM have weird... moved lines compared to the result image, and compared to the sprites stored at the bottom of the ROM which look normal. I tried to directly paste a sprite from the bottom to a sprite on the top and attached is what happened. The sprites also have these misplaced lines in them when using the Pokemon Yellow Sprite editor, so it's not just TLP.

How can I get around this? I just want to replace some of the sprites in the "top".

I'm editing wild pokemon encounters in Red version, and just wonder what the last two hex values before the ending ones (00 19) are about? It looks like it's one of the pokemon encounters (for route 1, the last ones are 05 24 00 19 - would be lv 5 Pidgey) but I ran around trying to encounter such a pokemon on the route without success...

It's not really practical. The GBA can only load a 64x64 image (via the OAM) without needing a tilemap.

So possible, yes, but not very likely.

I have a strange thingy that I have no idea on how it should be fixed. I lead a warp to a new map I inserted into the ROM and it looks fine and nothing seems to have changed, but the scripts won't activate on it. Also, the movement permissions I changed stay in their original state (As in, I change a few unwalkable tiles to walkable, but in the game they stay unwalkable), even though they are changed in AdvanceMap.

Anyone know how to fix it?
