Does anyone have the offset for the Trainer backsprite in Emerald?


I've looked on the forums, and in Tile Molester but only found Birch.

I've been searching the archives and threads for over an hour and just need a simple question answered. How can I make the national dex be given at the very beginning instead of the normal pokedex? This is for a fire red hack.
The special you need to set is "special 0x16F", according to
diegoisawesome's MEGA-HUGE XSE Scripting Tutorial. Put that in a script somewhere at the beginning of the game.

For some reason, when I try to warp into the player's house, I end up stuck in the black tile just under the entrance/exit.

Any solutions? QQ

Okay so I was thinking of making a hack based on being in a test facility/facility in general and having to work with specific pokemon to defeat objectives.
basically I'm looking at scrapping the badge system and having all badges already earnt, as well as the repeated giving and taking of pokemon from the player (the player gets new choices every time.
The idea is to escape the test facility while solving various puzzles and also battling various 'gamesmasters' which take the metaphoric role of gym leaders, while in the main not really having much impact other than that of a minor boss.
The hack will not be a full pokemon game, rather a spinoff game aimed to challenge the mind and help people to use pokemon not really tried before.

Just wondering what kind of work would be required here? This will mainly as I say be based on the puzzles and navigation of a large building rather than the collecting of pokemon and the storyline.
Thanks! (PS: Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.)

Did you warp it to the right warp tile?
Is there a warp under the entrance/exit of the room?
Try and recheck to make sure you have the numbers correct.

Surprisingly, everything seemed to be right.
Though I managed to fix everything by completely scrapping the maps and scripts, and redoing then redoing them from scratch.

However, now I'm having another problem.
I made a warp on the stairs to take the player downstairs.
But instead of walking off the mat onto the stairs and then being warped downstairs, you can only get downstairs by walking off the mat in the other direction. o:

Also, is there any way to define the player's starting point? Because he keeps appearing on a table. :/

OK, i have no idea whats going on. I've been having a problem where, when the starter goes to evolve (They're the johto starters, and im using a firered rom), and the game crashes. Not just like the screen where it evolves, and it says ? and not evolved, the rom image crashes. I don't know why this happens...I gave the player the national dex, same issue. I'm using JPANs engine, if that means anything. Maybe i made the script for national dex wrong...its just:

#org 0x80624A
special 0x16F
release
end

So whats wrong? Please help me fix it!

You can change that through Advance Map's block editor. Have a look at other examples of stairs going up, down, left and right in the ROM and change the behaviour byte. The four possibilities of combinations for going up/down and left/right are easily found in Silph Co and made by changing the tile's behaviour byte to 6C (Up-Right), 6D (Up-Left), 6E (Down-Right) or 6F (Down-Left).

HackMew has made Start Map Chooser Advance which allows you to choose which map you initially start on, along with your co-ordinates (Only the X-axis on FR/LG though).

You should be able to tell if you've got the National Dex by looking at the Pokedex from your in-game menu. The special used to activate the National Dex shouldn't harm your game so the the crashing must be from something else in the ROM, perhaps you have inadvertently overwritten important parts of the evolution code. Try evolving other non-National Dex Pokemon and see if the game is still crashing (which is I suspect it will). If this is the case then you may have to start again on a fresh ROM.

Zodiac Da Great has released a Door Editor which works on all third generation games and allows for exporting and importing so you could export the door animations from Emerald if you wanted to. I've never really used it before so I don't know any specifics.

Do NPC trainers have IV/EV values set on their pokemon? As I understand it, NPC trainers in Gen III do not have these set onto their team members, but what about Gen IV and Gen V? I know Cynthia has a perfect IV'd team, but what about the regular trainers?

And if the IV's aren't set for the trainers, what do they do for them? Have a randomized set generate? Are all set to a number for all trainers? Are gradually scaled up from 0 to 31's?

I think there are no dangerous offsets when it comes to Emerald.
You can start as others on 800000 but as long as last number is 0, 4, 8, C, F, you are safe =)

Are you sure there is no way to restore it? Like, going into a clean rom to the evolution offset and rewriting it? If theres a way to, or if anyone could do it for me, PM me, it'd be appreciated, because I've put in alot of work in this hack, and I don't think i could muster up the effort to remap, retile, and recode everything.

Theoretically, you could use a hex editor to copy the original data over the corrupted data in your ROM. However, that could break some of the changes you've made.

If I'm understanding DrFuji's description properly, your problem is that the evolution code in your ROM has been overwritten... But what overwrote it? Whatever was written to that code's location will be destroyed when you restore that code.

...If you are in fact having the problem that DrFuji described, of course. Have you tested evolutions in the manner they described at the end of their post, to verify that this is your issue?

Thanks for the info, but it IS set at 6F and it still makes me walk UP invisible stairs in the wrong direction O:

1. I downloaded the program Overworld Changer but when I click run nothing happens. How do I fix this?

2. I have programs like Poketronic, A-Mart, Firestarter, and PokemonAmplifier that when I hit run an error appears saying "Component 'comdlg32.ocx' or one of its dependencies are not correctly register:a file is missing or invalid". How do I fix this?

*3. If these are unfix-able are there any other programs that can do the exact same thing.

Thanks

1. Did you try running as admin?

2. You're in luck; I just fixed this problem (:
Download the corresponding .OCX files and paste them into the respective programs INI folders. Then try

well, actually, I have two questions about a pokemon White ROM hack:
.How do I change pokemon sprites in and out of battle? I want to recolor some pokes for myself
.How do I change battle music? I saw a hack on youtube and it had the RSE champion music.

Thx beforehand for answering
