    hen this is the best time to buy it. There is a Photoshop 7 with Premeire Elements for about in the 100-120 dollar range. For that version and later, you go on:

    (Images- Mode- Color Table)

    Thanks for the guide ,Dante because this is forwarding my rom hack by alot in the visuals apartment.

            yes...
            this is problem can happen becouse the palette that you use are not equal to the basical...
            you can change it whit the HackMew tool's APE

            APE offset:
            Boy intro-- ---->0046161C
            Rival Intro ---->004623B0
            Prof intro ----->004623B4
            Girl Intro ------>00460EF0

              Good lord, Dante! The color thing is outstanding! It took me forever to try to get mine right in black in white! I'm glad I'm taking a break for a while, because I wouldn't have noticed this!

                    Nevermind, but how come the palette isn't working? Could you make a quick tutorial on how to change the palette of the sprite in APE?

                        This is a bad tutorial. You fail to explain how you did most of the steps.

                          O_________O THIS IS THE MOST HELPFUL TUTORIAL I HAVE EVER SEEN!

                          It fixes ALL of my problems with the hack I'm currently working on. THANK YOU! =D!!

                          If problems arise I'll ask again later. BUT I'll probably do some tinkering of my own a little if that is indeed to happen.

                            you are bad..
                            not the tutorial..
                            I have asked you in this topic and for PM to send you me an image of your problem to understand better.
                            You have not done it and then this is your problems..
                            you complain and you don't explain well your problem therefore the guilt is yours..

                                This helped me a lot.
                                Btw, for the people who don't have photoshop, u can use paint:
                                1. Make ur sprite before hand.
                                2. Do all the stuff in the tutorial then save your image.
                                3. Open up the saved image and then your sprite.
                                4. Place your sprite over the old one and colour in the background.
                                5. Insert. It worked for me!


                                Never mind, don't do this. I'm trying to insert this:

                                What am I doing wrong?

                                  when should you click on the palette viewer for the Rival's intro? I tried it when Oak says "This is my grandson..." but the palette didn't work with the image..

                                  I'm a bit baffled after the part when you insert Red's palettes than move straight to Brandon's(or Ruby hero).Am I supposed to paste over Red with the palettes still intact?

                                    I got this problem A LOT. I fixed it! You just have to go to the female or male choice screen and pick one. When you choose male, then go to "Tools" at the top of your VBA game and click "Pallet viewer" then take a screen shot of the page.

                                    Paste the screen shot in MS paint or whatever your image editing program is, then cut out the pallet colours only, click "Copy" abd then click undo twice. Paste only your little pallet of colours for the male character then make ABSOLUTE SURE that every single last colour in your character is replaced with those pallet colours.

                                    If any given one is not from that pallet or if you accidentally selected a background colour, it'll turn orange and green and neon blue in the game, blah blah blah. I accidentally got the same thing wrong as you did here and I think this is your problem:: You might have selected colours from OAK or RIVAL who have entirely different colour pallets from the Hero and Heroine. The game won't see them right and will make them look like THE HULK when you try to patch the game with them. >__> Don't do that. ;

                                    Trial and error will get all of the colours right until your character is fully coloured correctly.

                                    And there ya go~

                                      Ok I think this is a great tut, worked really well when changing the boy start. The problem happened when i tried to change oak...i used the exact same colour and didn't change the palette at all...i even tried useing your advice with APE but the problem isn't with those colours. The colours are the skin ones which can't be change with APE (or i don't know how to) ANYBODY who knows how to fix this problem please help. thanks

                                        Hey this is a great tutorial but Ive noticed something.

                                        Could you check to see if the pallete for Oak is correct?
                                        I don't think it is the same pallete for the one in the intro. I have tried changing it several times already.

                                            P.S great tutorial, really helped me

                                                still a great tut..i have changed most of the starting people but oak is still giving me troubles...i am not sure what i am doing wrong. I repaletted him so that they are all the original colours given by the game so none r changed...but his skin is still blue haha. Also when i insert the new oak i get "Ptr found at 00131304", i have no clue what that means so any help would be nice. Thanks
