To fix your screwed up ROM, see my tutorial in the Documents and Tutorial section, HackMew's Knowledge. The link is in my sig.

    But, if I insert the image somewhere else, how will I acsess the picture in game? Or with an editor?

    No... after you insert it somewhere else, you just need to delete the *.spr and *.pal files and reload the ROM into unLZ. You'll find the image just like the others, except it won't be at the same place of course.

      Ok, so this is my next problem
      The backsprites for all the Fakemon that are inserted have really weird colours, like this one: (Ignore the Jpeg and the misnamed Bewstripe )
      Spoiler:

      I have no clue what the problem could be, because all the frontsprites are fine, and the backsprites use the same palettes as the front sprites :\ Help, please?

        I have a few more questions.

        1. When you set the clock in your house, then go downstairs, you mom says that there's an interview on TV about petalburg. How do you edit that?

        2. After you beat your [rival] and you enter Professer Birch's lab. How do you edit that?

        I need a really fast response.

        Edit is pretty generic here. You mean editing what they say? Or what happens in general?
        Either way, those are level scripts. There are some tutorials available. Also, keep in mind asking for a fast response won't help here. You will get an answer, eventually.

          Oh sorry. And I meant editing what they say. See, I can only use a script editor to edit texts, since Advance Text won't work for me. But I can't find the script that let's me editing either of those.

            ^Go to advancemap, and click where it says "header" then go down to map scripts. It's one of those.

            It's not that hard actually. First of all load with AM the map where the scripts are executed. Then enable the Professional Header View option, go to the Header tab, and look for the Map Script Offset and copy it. Open XSE, load the ROM, paste the offset and enable the Level Script option (the button next to the decompile button). Finally, decompile. As usual with text editing you can't change the text so it's longer or you will overwrite data. That's when you need to repoint.

              Slight problem. When I did that, this is what came out.

              '-----------------------
              #org 0x152722

              0x16000180
              0x5000080



              But actually, I need the offset of the script that exicutes that. That's what I need.

              EDIT: Okay, forget that. I need to know how to make a Pikachu follow you like in Pokemon Yellow, and how to make it appear in battle like it would in Pokemon Yellow.

                I would like to make my own game, but every time i try a map editing program it is all messed up. On the side of the program where all the pieces you can place on the map are it is all jumbled up and really hard to work with. Does anyone know how to fix this so it is more organized and has all the right parts?

                That requires ASM hacking.

                  Its like that. You're using A-Map right? well the jumbeled up tiles are supposed to be like that. I think you should read a mapping tutorial like in the documents and tutorials section

                    Yes, I know it won't be in the same place, but let's say that the sprite I want to insert is a trainer. How would I get the trainers pic into A-trainer? Can it search for pictures? Because I know that there is room for extra Pokemon pictures, but I don't know if the same is true for trainers.

                        Nope, as of yet, there are no other cry editors. Your best bet is to put the file in a .rar folder, and re-extract it every time it is deleted, so you don't have to keep re-downloading.
                        If it still deletes it in the .rar folder, try keeping it on a flash drive.

                          Quick question here.
                          I was an idiot and accidently deleated all my tools and I don't want to download them all again . So my question is this:
                          What tools are absolutly nessesary for a hack? I have A-map, A-starter, XSE, UnlZ GBA, Lunar IPS, OWE and Free space finder. Is there any more I really need?

                            If it still deletes it in the .rar folder, try keeping it on a flash drive.

                                Try getting a better antivirus. PokéCry being recognized as a malware is obviously a false positive.

                                  How do I edit the graphics? I've searched all the possible results but none of them are graphics related.

                                    In unLZ-GBA, when ever I try to change May's sprite, it always ends up in the wrong color. I am supposed to use Shiny Medicham's colors, so I type in 931 for the palette. However, when I play the game, the colors are May's normal colors. Why is this happening? I am using Ruby Version for this.
