    When you backup the rom, where is the backup saved? I could really use that backup right now.

      It's saved in the same directory as the original .gba file is saved.

      Always Manually back it up, by copying the file, and saving it into a folder. I always make a folder named 'Backup' and place it on my desktop and keep my backed up one in that folder.

        In Advance Map, is there an undo button or something like that? It would be helpful.

        Try that, I didn't test it or really *look* at it, just cleaned it up and fixed what I noticed was wrong from the get go.

        your #orgs are basically function descriptions, so they need to be separate from the actual functions. Also for future reference, this should be in the Script Help thread, not hte simple questions thread.

          At the start of Fire Red, where Oak is talking about Pokemon and you (the player), how do I edit that.

          unLZ. Open the ROM and search for the sprite of oak. If I recall it is somewhere around 1350 as the offset, just search that offest and then browse the surrounding offset. once you find it click import and import your image. use free space finder to find free space, and adjust the sprite pointer.

          http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=165124

          there is a guide to give you more specific details, just find Oak in unLZ and follow the same steps.

            I have a question which i kinda want to be answered asap. If i have an older beta of a hack, and a save file on it, then i download the newer beta (im using VBA), will i be able to use my old save file on the newer beta?

            Since the old hack is a beta, and the new hack is a beta, it might not work. Best way to find out is to try.

            No, your old save data will not work, you need to restart, to prevent complications that may arise.

              If you're hacking emerald can you have 2 person battles? Like have both backsprites on screen and fight with eachother in a 2v2 match?

                How can I edit the verry beginning of the game, like the screen with the Pikachu in the corner and the screen that explains the buttons?
                Quote:
                Nevermind... I figured it out. In Advance Text you use the search function and look for a partial bit of the text. Press write to INI and choose where you want to save it in Advance Text so you can edit it.

                Also the offset for the Oak intro would be nice too What I'm really looking for in the Oak intro is where to edit the nidoran sprite. The Dante tutorial doesnt cover that

                Use A-Text from WaH, to edit the intro text.

                Oak's sprite should be somewhere around the offset 1350 five or take 75.

                You have to change the nidoran sprite, then add a new nidoran to the game and adjust its Poke'dex entry number.

                  I know this has been asked before, but it hasnt gotten a full response yet

                  Which pokemon hacks are completed or are close enough to completion?

                  The only ones i know of are Quartz, RijonAdventures and ShinyGold

                  you might never get a full response, simply because a hack is never really in a sense completed, and the work that goes into it to get it where Shiny Gold and other such hacks are is a LOT of work.

                    Thanks for the quick reply

                    Yeah, A-Text doesn't show it by default and I didn't realize there was a search function at first XD

                    Gah to the nidoran sprite editing lol Is there anyway to disable him from popping up aside from editing it to be transparent?

                      unLZ. Open the ROM and search for the sprite of oak. If I recall it is somewhere around 1350 as the offset, just search that offest and then browse the surrounding offset. once you find it click import and import your image. use free space finder to find free space, and adjust the sprite pointer.

                      http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=165124

                      there is a guide to give you more specific details, just find Oak in unLZ and follow the same steps.
                      I mean the text part but thanks.

                          regsvr32 \windows\system32\COMDLG32.OCX

                              Hello, I have successfully done the three following things in Pokemon Platinum:

                              Type Editing, Sprite Editing, Base Stat Editing

                              Now of course this is old, by the forum's standards, however I feel there is something more to it.

                              If someone for Pokemon Platinum, could give me the offset in which "battle music" starts? If I have that, I would try to make a table out of it.

                              Thanks.

                              C is your hard drive. Open up Computer and browse to your hard drive, then browse to the windows folders, then browse to the system32 folder.

                              There's actually a thread below where people are compiling information in regards to generation IV hacking. Best to ask in there. I wouldn't think that'd be a "simple question" or rather, common knowledge. As this thread is meant for.

                              Blech, I see you've already found that thread. Though I still think it'd be better asked there. I wouldn't consider much in regards to D/P/P hacking to be a "simple" question yet. Not many have delved too far into it.

                                It still doesn't work. Does anyone have A-text that works? Can they link it 2 me?
