    I should ask you this:
    I'm working on a newer OW editor for NSE 2.X, but I'm missing some info on a couple pointers and bytes in the OW header.

    Here's what I know/ask:

    There are 32 bytes that make up a sprite, or at least its properties.

    Bytes 0-1 are the starter bytes (0xFF and 0xFF)
    Byte 2 is the palette index
    Byte 3 is ALWAYS 0x11 Why?
    Bytes 4-5 have something to do with OW type or size, any idea?
    Bytes 6-7 are the frame size
    Bytes 8-11 are size Width and Height
    Bytes 12-15 have something to do with palette loading, any ideas? These have to be adjusted to reflect palette changes, but I don't know why.
    Bytes 16-19 are the first pointer, to what? what is the loaded info doing?
    Bytes 20-23 are the second pointer, again to what and why?
    Bytes 24-27 are a pointer that has something to do with animation, again what's at this pointer and what is it doing?
    Bytes 28-31 are the third pointer, pointing to the pointers to frames in the frame list.

    Is there a table of the number of frames for each OW...
    -or is it just a matter of what movements are applied to said OW during a script?

    How are animations stored? Where is the data that shows what frames to load for each movement?
    (In NSE [classic] I stored all the "anim-pointers" and would allow you to change the OW pointer, but I don't know WHAT its pointing to)

    I really hope you can help, I don't want to have to revert to the same nasty code that was in NSE [Classic] (lots of guessing),
    and I want to make a super-powerful OW editor that anyone can use...

    -Thanks in advance

    Didn't you make a patch that cleaned out all of the Nintendo scripts that was a base for your Hacked Engine patch?

    Is it still floating out there in the great unknown? :c

    Hey JPAN. Would you happen to know what the best variables are to use for scripts and level scripts in Emerald?

    Hey, Jpan
    I'm having a problem with your engine.

    When I try to use the ''More overworld palette function'' there are only a few slots that work.

    0 Works but messes up the Hero sprite (Like expected)

    B Works
    E Works only after you press start go to a menu en go back out... (+Messes up the D/N system)
    F Same as E

    The other palettes don't change so I can only use 2 slots.
    For something I want to do I need 9 slots, can you help?

    I hope you could help me (adding new OverWorlds is a very important thing for me), but I will not bother if you're busy :(:'(

    hey Jpan. Im researching on implementing the battle tower in firered, and my conclusion was that your hacked engine was the answer. But the problem is that when i want to implement more than 2 options, (using " 0x0 0x0 0x26 0x0") I get the vending machine options. anyway to get around this?
