I think you can't compile scripts with scripted. Use Pokéskript or Diamond cutter.

    Be sure that you've got a clear ROM.

      I have a new Island I made using Advance Map for Pokemon Fire Red, and when I open my town map it says I am on 5 Island and I would like it to be a different map and I want it to say that I am on Island 8. Is there any way I can do this. I also would like to input the Island into the Rainbow pass so I can travel to that Island 8 by ferry. Please Help me.

      "When I compile a script through ScriptEd (I don't like using PokeScript) and overwrite a gba game to put in the script, it always says the file wasn't found, even though it's really there."

      Go same problem...
      I just solved the problem for that person, so I'll help you too. First, name your rom image "game". DO NOT PUT ANY EXTENSIONS ON IT. Make it simply "game". Now, put your script into ScriptED and press compile. Do not select your game from the list! Instead, go to where it says, "File name:" and type in "game.gba.gba". Hit save, and it should work for you now.

      Could someone give me a place to get a good Hex Tutorial, as I'm trying to do a translation project for "Keitai Denjuu Telefang" and is there a possible way to make it so yo can have a choice between Kuriputo and Fangusa?
      Most to all hex-editors are good in my opinion, you just have to know how to use them. I suggest Hexecute 2.10. I suggested this version because it has a "Search Relative" function. But for later, you'll need Hexecute RC7, which allows you to input a table file a lot easier. If you know of better hex editor, feel free to use it, these are only suggestion.

      Like Charmander said; make sure you have a clean Rom. Other than that, your on your own I'm afraid...

      First of all, change the name of the island! Second, you'll have to edit the town map, to look the way you want. Also, if you want an event that makes it where you get the "Rainbow Pass" and a ferry takes you to "Island 8". You'll just have to make a simple script that does so. Ps. Warp scripts are super easy!

      Actually, Yeah it does. In reality that's what ScriptED is for, to insert or "compile" scripts into the game. Besides, Diamond Cutter is basically an earlier version of ScriptED. As for why it did not work, I'm not sure...Tell me exactly what happened.

      As always, Hope this helped you all!

        I am trying to make a hack of Emerald and i cannot get BaseEdit, BeWildered, or Patted to work for it. I always get a message saying "supported rom, but monsters base stats are not specified in the database." Is there anything i can do to fix it or are there and different programs that i can use that do the same thing?

          I have a problem with Advance Map

          Whenever I try to change the tileset the tiles that are already on the map get replaced with the tiles on the new tileset that I just loaded and the houses and other buildings get messed up

          If and one could tell me how to fix this I would greatly aprreciate it

              Sorry, but: BaseEdit, BeWildered, Patted, and all of those other sorts of programs were designed before Emerald was released. They do not support Emerald, sadly... As for other tools, you can use a hex editor to do most of these things. I'm not very experienced at Hacking Emerald though, I mostly only use it to import tiles to other rom images.

              It's supposed to do that. To insert new tilesets, you must replace older tilesets. There is only a certain amount of space in the rom. You can, however, change the amount of blocks. Just look around Advance Map, you'll find the option.

              Alright, to insert a new map please do the following.
              First: Open up Advance Map and load your rom... yadayada
              Second: Select on any map, it doesn't matter.
              Third: Go to File > Map... > insert map.
              A~ window will pop up~
              Fourth: Go down to the last option "Create New Spot"
              Fifth: Select where your map will go. I.e. : If you want your new map to be part of the Pallet Town set (Your house, Rival's house, Oak's Lab...) then select "4" where it says "bank".
              Sixth: Select "1" "amount of reserved maps".
              Tada! You have now inserted a new map into the game!
              Warning: I do not suggest this. It is much easier just to replace old locations. You'll understand in the long run.

              1. By custom do you mean, inserted map? I've never had trouble before... until later, that is.

              2. By "move to another place" do you mean a new map offset? Because if so, that is do-able. Just make sure the sprites are in the same ratio they were from each other on the last map. Also, make sure there are no obstacles in the way, ie. Trees.

              3. Many things can cause the image-rom to crash. But most likely you have overwritten valuable data. It happens quite often, the only way to fix it when it happens... is to have a backup! Always make a backup file!

              Hoped this helped!

                Yeah a insertet, when I try to warp my rom crash I discovered in elitemap for not so long ago that I got the "girl" event there O.o Maybe that's the reason?

                Well by the pokemon bag I mean how can I be able to just have the bag, press A-button, choose a pokemon and then I have the pokemon in my team and the bag will be destroyed?
                Can you maybe post what scripts I need? (the numbers/letters like "$1A030F")

                Haha ok Today I've been forced to start over three times I think X'D

                Thanks for the answers

                  How do I edit the Town Map on Fire red? I know warp scripts are easy, but how can I warp the ferry to my Newly Created Island.

                  I have another question too.

                  How do you connect maps together like Cinnibar Island and Pallet.
                  I would like to know so I can create some new Areas.

                    Well, for exactly what I did in ScriptED, I wrote a script to give your character a pokemon in wordpad, copied it into ScriptED, then hit save, and triedhitting "COMPILE" but I can't, the button is wierd, like the other buttons have the black lettering so you can click on it, but the letters on compile are just gray, and it's un-clickable

                    Oh, you probably shouldn't insert maps using Elitemap, It likes to act pretty screwy at times.
                    Also, as for you "bag" inquiry, it is not possible. The script must stay together sadly, the random battle will occur afterwords... My suggestion for you is to create a new script, one that would say something like, "Look, The Prof.'s Bag! There are three Pokeballs in it!". Then proceed to the real part. "Do you want to take this Pokeball?". You know, basically make a text version of what the bag would do. It would be a tedious script to make, but it could be done.

                    Woah, come down! We do have lives outside of PC you know...

                    1. To edit the map, you'll more than likely need to use Cyclone, It's the best program for it. Just make sure you have the needed files.

                    2. Those are called "connections" my friend. Advance Map can edit this part of the rom. Elitemap can also, though again, I don't recommend it.

                    3. You know, everytime I do this It comes out horribly wrong. Sorry, I can't answer this question truthfully...

                    Wow, I know what your talking about, the grey "un-clickable" letters. But, I do not believe this has ever happened to me before. Sorry, I can not help you.

                    Hope this helped!

                          I was just curious. Is there a way to change how a map looks mid-game? Like you enter a town and it looks normal, but later in the game it gets set on fire (for example. I know I'd have to make custom tiles for that). On a smaller scale, is it at least possible to manipulate the weather? I've played through Emerald, and it seems possible.

                          Also, is it possible to create animated tiles? I know the water tiles are animated. Is there anyway to create, say tiles of a building on fire?

                            I'm having trouble making a Pokeball disappear after I take it. I followed Irish Witch's tutorial on making it disappear, but it didn't work. And I'm using ScriptED, Pokescript confuses me when it comes to compiling

                              Well, Of cousre it wont work then.. Irish Witchs Tutorials qre only for her program: PokeScript. So you have to use Chritos Tutorial for ScriptED.

                                  Which one are you looking for? You didn't specify.

                                    Well will you please either tell me where to find them? Or the one that tells you how to make sprites disappear.

                                      I think this is what you were looking for.

                                      Add this to the end of the website. I can't type URLs till I have 15 posts.


                                      EDIT: If you have no luck there, my advice would be to move the poke ball to a place where the player couldn't possibly see it.

                                        hey guys just a few questions, i looked at a lot of the pages in this thread but i didnt go through all


                                        1. Is there a way to edit my trainer in the game so he looks like a pokemon? or should i just create a new one that looks like a pokemon

                                        2. Can i make a pokemon follow me round? Or, beating that, a team of pokemon?

                                        thanks
