    Can't be done. From what I hear, in FR you can have two big regions and one small.

    As for the pokemon, there are the ones from the first three gyms plus 25 more due to some strange circumstance.

    Pretty much impossible. Sorry. You could probably fit in two regions and the already programmed-in 386 'mons, plus the 25 free spaces that I don't really enjoy using.

    Sorry, buddy. D:

    Edit: Damn, beaten. But yeah, you get the idea.

    @ Drakuaza: Well, the latter is possible with ASM, IIRC. But I'm not sure how. To just change the sprites of Gengar and Nidorino, unLZ-GBA is handy. (:
    By the way, MS rules. XD

      Hmm. I see, well is there any ASM tutorial that could explain that? i couldnt find anything regarding that issue at the current guides

      @maplestory thing, i quit it like 3 months or 4 ago.

      the one with gengar and nidorino fighting.
      About the first question... As far as I know, the title screen is special in that the song played there has no loop point. In other words, when it's done, it's done. Nothing happens. Now, when the game is on the title screen, and notices that the song has finished playing, it automatically resets the game. Through some ASM hacking, it should be possible to extend the time, or, alternately, you could insert a longer song. Or of course a song that loops, so that the game doesn't reset at all.

        Hey,I'm trying to make a hack out of emerald,and I ALWAYS MAKE SURE SPRITES ARE 100% CUSTOM.Unfortunately,I haven't tried a hack before for 3rd gen,and have no idea how to change tilesets.I know a-map has a tool for it,but it doesn't accept my tilesets (as in they don't show up).How did you people with the custom tilesets import them?

          I have a song that lasts 1:24. and it loops at 50 or so.So its not the song. its the timing, and the original title loops, add it to a map, it will loop.

            I fixed that. Does it all have to do with level hacking and things like that? When I lose, I get the right script, saying I scurried home before my first pokemon center, but it keeps sending me to map 0.0

            Well, I guess it's different for FR than it is for R/S/E, then. In Emerald at least, and probably in R/S too, it happens like I said in my previous post. Don't know how it works in FR...

              I'm about to install Sappy 1.2 on my laptop.
              I'd downloaded it from the Helmeted Rodent website.
              Is it safe(ie are there any more viruses, like in Elite Map)?
              Thanks

              Yeah, sorry, another problem!
              Can anyone explain why this happens:

                Download the advanced series in the tools section and use the sprite position editor.

                  Does anyone know where I can get the 4th gen Pokemon 'death cries'?

                  Chances are, the sounds are all just the regular sounds/cries, just slowed and lowered by the game's engine.
                  You'll have to either record it, or rip the cry and do it yourself with a sound editing program like Wavepad...

                    Hello again.
                    How does one(using advance map) make a snowy city? I dont want the whole rom to be snowy, just a city or route. And I dont mean just the weather i mean the palettes.

                    and here's a previous question I had that still needs some answering if anybody can help:

                    This is a Fire Red ROM.

                    Spoiler:
                    I was wondering if it was possible to make more room on a ROM for maps (areas), like having the name on the list instead of choosing to re-name an already named map and thus change all of the original map to what I re-named that one to.(ex. Changing Pallet town to something I want a new area to be called then having it save the name onto the original pallet town also.) Because my system of saving the names over old maps isn't the best.

                      How does one(using advance map) make a snowy city? I dont want the whole rom to be snowy, just a city or route. And I dont mean just the weather i mean the palettes.

                      and here's a previous question I had that still needs some answering if anybody can help:

                      This is a Fire Red ROM.

                      Spoiler:
                      I was wondering if it was possible to make more room on a ROM for maps (areas), like having the name on the list instead of choosing to re-name an already named map and thus change all of the original map to what I re-named that one to.(ex. Changing Pallet town to something I want a new area to be called then having it save the name onto the original pallet town also.) Because my system of saving the names over old maps isn't the best.
                      1. To make a snowy route, you insert the Snowy tiles yourself into the Secondary Tileset (which is route and city specific, so pick which one first), and then use that.
                      2. There is no known way to insert new map names without replacing old ones. Yet.

                      Can someone post a full Tutorial on how to use Pokemap please? I've looked all over the web and can't find any complete Tutorials for Pokemap.

                      Also how do I edit in newer generation Pokemon onto a GBC game without having to delete older generation Pokemon?

                        If this is already on here, then I apologize, I didn't feel like spending two hours going through 500 pages of questions. I have been repeatedly trying to hack Ruby/LeafGreen ROMs, but after I progress through the Hack to about the first or second Route, the game will completely freeze. I checked in A-Map and everything is f***ed up. Pokemon names are changed to something like (p,p,p,p,p) or (d;/) no parentheses, and item events are changed likewise. Sorry for the long post. Why does this keep happening?!?!?! All 5 times I've tried.

                        On FireRed/LeafGreen how do I change the path that Professor Oak walks in when he's leading you to the lab?

                        you have to do a little something called scripting. Look for tuts in the documents and tutorials section ;)

                          Hi there,
                          Some ROM hacks like "Pokemon Ruby Destiny: Life of Guardians" have copyright notices before the title screen (I have included an example picture).
                          How would I make my own one and is this process reversible?
                          Thanks in advance
