In firered is there any way to stop items from being deleted on use? I want to make the TMs work like in B/W along with having some form changing items(using evolution items to do this).

Hey, I've got a question!

In Fire Red, I'm doing some simple hacking by keeping most of the rom intact, aside from the messages and sprites and such. So I'm wondering where the script for the opening with Professor Oak is stored and where you can adjust the suggested names for you and your rival.

And another question: Before I knew about how the rom handles space, I made a message too long and it messed things up. So now the sequence with Oak, you and your Rival has a few wrong lines running through it. Nothing I probably won't be able to solve by getting into the script and editing the messages, but I can't seem to find the right script. So if anyone could tell me where the script for this is stored, that would be great! Just to be clear: It's the scene right before you're allowed to pick a Pokémon. And for that matter, picking the Pokémon itself has a messed up message in it too, so where is that stored?

Thanks in advance!

You don't really have to search for it. You can just double click on the sprite (assuming you linked a script editor to the Advance Map program) to edit it and compile it to a new offset.

Well that's the thing. The script is on neither Oak, the rival, the Pokéballs or even the the script that stops you from walking into the grass when you leave Pallet Town and guides you into the lab. And it's not like I'm reading past it, because I copied the scripts linked to those events and replaced them with the scripts of an unhacked Fire Red. So yeah... Where is it?

Oh okay, sorry I misread. I remember when I first edited the Oak scene. Did you try Oak behind the Pokeballs in the lab? He had a very long script. It should definitely be there.

Not that I can see. I can see the script for when you return and get your Pokédex and a few things that he says when you normally talk to him. But nothing from the scene where you get your first Pokémon.

Is it possible for me to use the "Wall Region Map Script on the walls," for the Town Map? My Town Map does not like my second region at all and everytime I enter my second region. The town map displays the northern section really glitchy. However, when I view my second region through the Wall map (in houses) it displays my second region perfectly. I have tried 6 times on a clean rom and I can confirm that the Town map absolutely does not like my second region at all. o_0

Might be a stupid question, but where can I find a level script? I've found something under Header called a Map Script, but that doesn't hold it either.

Woops, never mind! I found it! It was the 3rd Map Script that I needed. Thanks!

I looked around on Google for this OCX file and I could not find it anywhere... Could someone help please?

Hello! I searched for a while and cannot find out something. I'm making a Firered hack, and was wondering, how do you switch overworld sprites, for example, I want to make Brendan the Sprite in Firered, but I don't know how? Also would this work for fishing/biking animations as well? Thanks in advance.

You would need to use the Nameless Sprite Editor. (NSE)




I have a question also. Does anyone know how to replace the professor's sprite?

I have some good news...there is a way.

The easiest method is to change the Field usage value of the Map to the ASM that controls the World Map. Special 0xFB displays the World Map, so the ASM that does what you want is at 0x080CA7ED. So, all you need to do is set the Field Usage of the World map to 80CA7ED, which can be done in an item editor.

I just tested it out, and it works flawlessly.


I think I'm done with ROM hacking. I'll still pop in and visit, though.

Having trouble with music again, I've created my own Custom Leaders and when battling them it plays the Leader theme no problem but when I try and create rematches for the exsisting Leaders in FR so Brock, Misty, Sabrina etc it just plays the normal trainer tune. I don't know whether I've altered something with the settings but it's like this Music: 1 Unknown: 1 (That's the same for the Custom Leaders) then the Trainer Class is Leader and the Money Rate is 10 but for others it's 25, I don't know what's going wrong really.

Quick question! Where can you change the suggested names for the player and the rival?

Easiest way is to use A-Text, or a hex editor. Just search for each of the possible names, and modify it as necessary.

Ah, but how would I do this exactly? I already have NSE, I just didn't see a way to change the sprites around.

If you have NSE you have to go in and change the sprites by loading them in from photoshop or by changing each one pixel by pixel. Sorry I'm not good at explaining this.

It might have been answered before, but I can't check 900 pages or so to check so easily.


What is the offset for the beginning script (Oak presentation, where you name yourself and the rival) in Fire Red (BPRE01)
I know the text offsets (it starts @ 0x1C5C78), but not where the script that calls this text starts. Anyone?

Alright, thanks a bunch.

Does anybody know the tileset for caves in Advance Map? I go to make a new map and have to choose two tilesets, and I'm making a new cave.

I'm trying to get rid of the section at the beginning of the game that tells you that you're going on a journey and I'm also planning on getting rid of some places in my pokedex because I only want 150 places. Can someone help with this?
