503 should be there... maybe you just overlooked it?
IPS creating is very easy. If LIPS cannot do it, download IPS XP.
Then you just need to download clean Ruby ROM which will work as base ROM and that's all
But send the IPS once you finish fixing everything so I can just do scripting edits on the fully fixed ROM.
Just made a LOT of tile changes to Snowce City. I took snow off a roof and created a new grounded snow tile to prevent weird transitions behind buildings, fixed some Gym tile bugs, and respecified the pier roof edge (and corner edge) to hide behind them south of the Pokémon Center, among other things. Busy day of fixing, little of playing. I'll post the file and PM you a private link sometime (unless you can tell me how to IPS it), or I can e-mail it if you want to PM me that (unless it's in your profile).
Note I'm not done playing Zhery yet (seven Badges now), but you can test out if I missed anything should you feel so inclined. We can even post this fixed version, which INCLUDES FROSLASS. :D (I might move her to the middle chamber of Icestorm, however, or a frozen area in Lauren if any exists; Mt. Winter isn't all about frozen Pokémon, it seems.)
Sry, I'll keep this one brief. I do blab sometimes. :D
You were here in my afternoon! Yikes!
They like Growlithe? I will debate this then; I found female Magmar so can easily breed one. Some like catching the lowest evolution and going up, tho. Highest level is 25 in Shuem. They ought to be more common than Magmar (evolve at Lv.30). Obviously, Magmar can still be found, too, more rarely. Will do that.
TL;DR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Okay, I read it but seriously... this is the expression you would get from anyone else xD)
Nah, seriously please don't write such a long vm xD
I don't have that much time to read all of that every time xD
Which Route is missing? I don't really recall any number missing...
Gift change is simply scripting but I don't if people want that... some are actually happy to use Growlithe so soon in the game.
Brought up a new question. Magby is not found in the game anywhere (I think) while Magmar later appears at Mt. Shuem. Those lucky to get a female might be able to breed one, but might it be better just to make Magby available there, or even change the Growlithe gift into a Magby one? (Growlithe is also caught later.) I raised this question in the thread to see if anyone has an opinion on it.
If the gifter is changed, I don't think I have the tool for that. If you don't want to risk that change because you might break something, I can give it 4% or something in Mt. Shuem, or make it a Lauren acquisition as well.
Oh, and I've activated both Sophia events now. I'm training my party in Mt. Shuem right now by using some weaker Water types, thus leveling them up as well. Also debating taking Grass types back to Route 408 for a while, but that will be very slow if I do that, so trying to figure out another good training spot that has Water types (since Surfing can often get me Lv.10 opponents...I might change that, it makes no sense based on when you acquire Surf).
It's the most recent edition, 2011. I find the colouring in A-Map is off by a shade or two on all tiles as well, and it's noticible if you try to paste one screen over the screenshot from A-Map. There must be a setting I'm not utilizing, but it's fine either way; since I redo the maps with all the items and such on it, I end up using the absent transparencies to figure out what I haven't screengrabbed from VBA yet. Works well.
Interestingly, the transparency appears properly in the Block Editor area (that's why I was able to work on the snow tiles over the Snowce Pokémon Center, having to eventually remove the snow from a couple of tiles that could not be fixed; I can show you the final result from then if you're interested). That is what makes it not appearing on the map very odd, and why it's hard for me to tell which tree tile is which in the map editing if I were to find an error, having to right-click on another spot where I know the right tile is to select it. Heck, water tiles are three quarters black, themselves!
Fortunately, I'm not doing lots of map editing here; maybe in Lauren I'll need to again, but for right now, I think I've got it covered. Just basic screens in the Victory Road water area as I did the external areas out of reach manually, and then underwater and the eventual destination on the other side. Oh, and Victory Road itself. I cheated my way backwards through Drakebreath and did all the mapping through every Route already, so I just now have to finish the maingame and then I have more Route mapping to do. As I type, I'm in Mt. Winter and had to bail when Zoroark ran out of Faint Attack moves (I needed to dump items in the PC in any case). About to head back to go through the main area and the boss battle, but contemplating whether to get above Lv.45 first. Might give a test run and see how it goes.
BTW, am I imagining something I saw once, one Route doesn't exist in Lauren? There's a number missing in sequence. If I add areas, maybe I can use that Route number somehow.
It's Gym Leader's Froslass...
You need to meet her 2 times before she returns to gym and this is the second time.
You seem to have very distorted view of sprites in your version of A-Map o.O
Question for you. Is this my imagination, or did I just find a Froslass Event in Mt. Icestorm? If you remember the events in the final chamber, you will know exactly where to look for this.
(Event view size doubled.)
I'm guessing it's another post-E4 Event. I watched a video that contains no Trainer in that exact spot, and nothing on the way to the cave exit to challenge the rival. I'm hoping you have more tools that will identify exactly what that is. It could very well be an Event involving the Gym Leader, too, as there seems to be a sprite behind it.
