Yes, I've saved many times, but only half of data is wrote in the ROM D=

Example of the pokemon of Gary(that i've modified), in Viridian:

Eevee lv. 9 - Tackle - Sand-Attack - Helping Hand - Tail Whip

but A-Trainer wrote this on ROM:

Eevee lv. 9 - Scratch(bug) - Thunder Wave(move from pikachu) - Growl(move from pikachu) - Helping Hand

Sorry if my English is bad, I'm Brazilian \o

ENG: Try to see if the offsets are correct. It could be it. I once found myself battle two trainers with the same Pokémon because of that.
PT: Tenta ver se os offsets estão correctos. Eu uma vez lutei com dois treinadores com os mesmos Pokémons por causa disso.

Well, why not? I don't have one, so it would be definitely useful. Send me a PM so we can discuss about it further.

lol, thats epic.
so yea, you've not made any updates in a while...is there anythin goin awn inside the almighty factory? (Just kinda curious, thanks to OA ...)
Well, you're wrong LOL

First of all, I've updated the Shinyzer. Even if I didn't say it aloud. Second, I'm going to update A-Starter. Then release A-Intro and update A-Ptch. A-Trainer and XSE need updates as well. Since there's a lot of work, it will take a while, indeed.


Quote originally posted by Wild Electrode:
The Advance Trainer is simply awesome. You are a hero for making that. Thank you very, very much! I haven't checked out your other tools, but judging by how incredible A-Trainer is, I'm assuming they are all very well programmed and easy to use for the technologically stupid, such as myself.

All I would need now is one of the same caliber to edit Blue, Crystal, and Platinum. *wink wink*
Thank you very much :)

Well... that's definitely weird... did you test it with a clean ROM too?

HackMew is, in my opinion, the greatest living hacker at the moment. He makes so much for everyone and his programs are the best.

I have a question.

In APE, there was one palette I was about to edit. However, when I clicked on replace, a message popped up saying something like, "It's dangerous to mess with this palette" or something like that.

Could you tell me why it's bad to replace certain palettes? I'm trying to change the text colors in the Ruby/Sapphire battle screen to match FireRed/LeafGreen/Emerald's.

Were the codes of some of the colors in pink?

Yep.
http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/1903/pinkxk.png

I just read the readme, I'm assuming it's the "safe-mode" thing. The ones with pink backgrounds probably why. So as long as I don't modify the pink ones, it's okay, right? Since I tried it on a backup and I successfully did what I wanted in-game.

I'd say yes, but if I were you I'd wait for HackMew's reply.

Hm... As my title implies, I hack like a noob at the moment, so I'm looking for the right programs to help.
Since your a pro, hopefully you can point me to which of your programs do what, or who else has a tool with the function. ^.^
Also, if it's not too impolite, could you post a bit more detail under the descriptions of you tools? I would love it if they were more "noob" friendly, as I don't exactly understand all of it, and the descriptions are sometimes vague (example, I don't know what unLZ is/was).

Programs I need:
Change the world map. That means fly locations, links to towns/routes/others, and MAYBE pokedex info, too.
Scripter tool (I know you have one, but is it compatible with the AdvanceMap tool?)
Starter Changer (again, I know you have one. I'll have to check it out)
Perhaps a tileset editor/adder. I custom-design tiles for Pokemon Harmony at the moment, and possibly for my own hack once it gets under way.

Thanks a bundle!

That doesn't really help. How about putting up a screen shot or at least saying what the error code is?

New here but trying to dive right in, do not worry about me getting confused (too much ) I'll figure it out but mostly I just wanna know, should I download all of them? Or are there specific ones I do not NEED or should I just get em all and mess around?

I reccomend downloading all of them, except maybe rom header editor, and the save file converter (unless you have a specific use for it of course).
I also would advise "playing around" as in my opinion, that is the best way to learn this stuff. (I learned that the hard way)

At risk of sounding totally un-hack-savvy, what IS unLZ? I feel like the description is less than vague.

As i said to the guy above, i reccomend playing around.
Unlz.gba is basically a tilemolester for compressed data: a miracle from the gods IMO.
It actually separates the files for you too, which is very nice.

Hm... I don't see much to play around with. I opened my ROM on it and I ended up with a bunch of distorted squares, and I have no idea what they are used for... "Tilemolester" doesn't really tell me anything, either. Would you mind elaborating?

tilemolester is basically a thingy to edit un-compressed graphics in the gba, which is very dynamic, and useable.
unlz- tilemolester without the dynamics (it figures it out for you) or a scrollbar (replaced with the previous and next buttons)
really, it doesn't take a genius to figure unlz.gba out ... ._.?
Just incase...
1) Open ROM
2) Find the pic to edit (next/prev buttons...)
3) Export
4) Edit the exported image
5) Import the edited image
6) Write to ROM (on the same pic you exported)
7) If everything worked fine, your done. Otherwise...
8) Open FSF(or full metal freespace, either way) and search for the space it told you was needed
9) Write to ROM again. only this time, paste the offset from FSF (or full metal freespace, either way) into the image offset textbox, and check the "automatically re-point" option.
10) ~UR DONE!~ and the pic has been edited

HackMew, do you think you could include an A-Trainer feature that will allow you to export all the trainer data in one file and then import it?
