    [TUT]Hacking the worldmap in Fr/Lg

    1. Starting word
    2. The right worldmap
    3. Inserting the worldmap
    4. Making and inserting the tilemap
    5. Ending word

    1. Starting word

    Hi Guys, here I'll show you how to hack the worldmap in a Firered version.
    I'll take a german firered version.

    2. The right worldmap


    The worldmap must be 208x144 or 192x144...
    Also, your worldmap mustn't have more than 256 Tiles! If your worldmap has more difficult (!!!) tiles, you have to make another or change it.
    The route and city markes must be at one 8x8 Tile, because, ingame you select 8x8 tiles with the cursor.

    3. Inserting the Worldmap
    This is one of the easiest steps! Open your rom in the Unlz GBA and go to ~190, Black/White.

    Now save the picture and open it in paint.

    Now take the tiles of the new Worldmap and paste it into paint,and save!
    Now open Unlz GBA and go to the worldmap, insert yours with this checks, and define a new Offset.



    4. Making and inserting the Tilemap

    The worldmap looks ingame horrible, doesn't it?
    We need the NTME or another Tilemap Creator, and have to open our Tileset.
    Now make and save the tilemap.

    Lastly, open the Unlz GBA once more, go to the worldmap and take "File"->"Load raw...", and import the Tilemap.
    After that you have to write it in the rom, make "write to rom" and the check: "Export Palette", and write a new offset.
    Save it and open the Hex Editor and you rom.
    Look into the list of lu-ho for the offsets of the old tilemaps.

    I'll take the first offset, the tilemap of the normal region.
    Now, make the pointer of it.
    [3F][00][F4] -> [F4][00][3F]+[08] -> F4003F08.
    Search for it in your rom, and change the pointer, take your offset (mine was $810000 -> 00008108) and correct the old.
    Thats it!

    5. Ending word
    Sooo... I didn't tell you how to change the palette, I think you can this.
    The Tutorial is (c) by haefele.
    Oh yes, I know that my worldmap wasn't like this one, i have talked about in the first step.
    One thanks go to ~FunHouse~, he has correct my english.
    Have fun and at making worldmaps! ;)

        you say i have to enter a new offset... but how do i know the offset? xD
        im not really experienced in that stuff

        i think iwould be able to find an offset with the fsf, but i dont know how mcuh space i need...
        also i dont have a hex editor to change the offset later on. once i downloaded one it was bugging me... can you recommend one and give more details on that step please?

          Oh, you nearly had it. However, you can have 4,096 unique tiles, and you can flip them.

            Erm.. And now I think YOU are wrong..?
            > 8BPP tilemaps support tilesets with a maximum amount of 256 unique tiles..
            > 4BPP tilemaps support tilesets with a maximum amount of 1024 unique tiles..

              I'd ask MasterMind_X months ago and he said that the worldmap can have 65535 kind of tiles..

                I don't see how that would be possible.. At least, not for the formats I posted above!
                > 8BPP tilemaps have one byte (8bits) available to store the tile number; so &hFF + 1 or 256 tiles maximum
                > 4BPP tilemaps have 10bits available to store the tile number; so a maximum of &h3FF + 1 or 1024

                An other format might have 16bits (2bytes) available for the tile number, so that would indeed make a maximum of &hFFFF + 1 or 65536

                Anyways, B2T!

                  Are you sure you don't mean 65536? That would give you two bytes...

                    Oh yes, I've made a videotutorial... I upload it now, and edit the link.

                      Something about this is bugging me immensely. Every time I go to put in my world map, it tells me "File is not Indexed." Will someone explain to me what this means?

                        um to get ur offset, try put it on the rom without changing offset and make sure 'auto abort if too big' is on a error box should pop-up saying 'compressed size is: __ which is too big. aborting' the __ is a hex no. which you need so remember it. press cancel and open the windows calculator on scientific mode. go into 'hex' and type in the hex no. from before, then switch to 'dec' or decimal and it will automatically be transferred into a decimal. this decimal is the amount of space you need to search for on fsf.

                          What is the raw tilemap supposed to look like in unLZ? just like a bar or random squiggly stuff? or is it supposed to look like the map...?

                                    I don't very understand this tuto.
                                    It's look like good but sometimes I don't understand.
                                    If it was explain better maybe I understand it.

                                        the problem is Pelet
                                        problem is that I too
                                        never really able to insert a worldmap
                                        (I was come, but my last hurdle
                                        was the range).
                                        If I can solve this problem, you
                                        will include a manually worldmap
                                        from an already drawn image.

                                              OK. When I insert the image at a new offset, and open my rom in VBA the map is all screwy, but the palette is fine...

                                              I used PTC for tilemap/tileset editing.

                                              What did I do wrong?
