    I want to know if it's possible to change the binary rom data with a script. (Change the hex value at E40500 to A3)

    Maybe you have to create an ASM to do that and call it with a script?

    Please tell me the command or if it's ASM.

    If you mean changing a value in the RAM during gameplay, then yes, there is a script command...
    In XSE, it is called writebytetooffset

    It is written like this...

    writebytetooffset 0xoffset 0xvalue


    Your offset would look like this...
    writebytetooffset 0xE40500 0xA3

    Keep in mind that the effects of this command are NOT permanent changes to the ROM, and if the areas in the RAM you changed, get cleared or changed by the computer, your changes will be erased. (Like if you change your player's OW with writeBytetooffset, then enter a building, your OW will change back to normal.)
    Ok Here's what I wan't to do I'm adding an extra bit to a game (Not Overwriting) or at least trying to. I have a trainer sprite imported with UNLZ-GBA and an extra trainer with sydney's sprite. I know where the pointers are and how to change them but I wan't to know if it's possible to have a script that changes the bytes at the offset, battles the trainer then changes them back.

    So change E40050 to A3 (change part of pointer) battle trainer with different sprite due to pointer change and change E40050 to 1F (change back).

      I'm starting my hack with the maps of Sevii Island (FR) and I changed an indoor room, but then it changed other rooms aswell to the same thing, if I change them then the other ones the same get changed as well, is there a way I can stop this? Or do I have to keep creating new maps?

        Yes, you need to upload the shiny pallet of a pokemon in order for the backsprite to look normal...

              Because some specials depend on the values in 0x8004 or store a value in 0x8004.

              This used to happen to me back when I hacked ruby. I have an idea but I never tried it so its all theory. I think all the maps use differen't event offsets but same map offsets. so go to the map that is giving you the problems and replace the map's offset with free space(note this will make the map look weird and you will have to re make the map and you need to be in professional view not basic)

                Just one question. Is there any way to predetermine the moves of a Pokemon obtained from a givepokemon/giveegg script? Thanks!

                Both would require ASM, but since givepokemon will randomly egenrate stats as soon as the command is activated, it would take some complex ASM to find out. Same with an egge, but since the egg's stats are determined when it's given, not when it hatches, it would take easier ASM to display it's stats.

                  The stats are randonly generated, but not the moves. And when you use a giveegg command the attacks cannot be inherited by any parents, hence they must follow some standard set, I think. Just like wild Pokémon. Either way, ASM is indeed required, but I'm wondering what would be useful for.

                  Search in the documents and tutorials forum for a tutorial on editing the titlescreen in Ruby.

                  Sreach the toolbox forum for a tool made by Wichu, which can easily edit icons. Or look for them in a tile viewer. Or even use iconEd.

                      As far as I know, there is no method yet. However, HackMew's been working on it, I think. It might take a while until it's finished, though.

                        1) If a changed a attack using attack editor, how can i also change the onscreen effect of attack?

                        2)Is there a tool other than icon ed which can change ITEM icons not POKEMON icon
                        (I know there is wichus tool for changing pokemon icons)??

                          1) If a changed a attack using attack editor, how can i also change the onscreen effect of attack?
                          Not exactly sure what you mean. You CAN change the effects using Darthatron's (I think he is the one that made it idk my mind fails.) attack editor. If you want to add new effects it will require ASM.

                          UnLz can change the Item icons. You can also use the item editor in the Snag'em thread to re-point them if you are to lazy to go through UnLz.

                              If you want to add new effects it will require ASM.

                              Sorry but can u explain what is ASM?


                              Also i know how to add pokemon using unlz

                              Is adding item icons the same way i.e index the picture put in the place and correctly repoint the pointers
                              Can trainers images also be changed in the same way??

                                i know how to add sprites of pokemon size should be 64*64
                                What should be the size for adding berries pallet??
                                also can it be added in same way as pokemon sprites are added using unlz and fsf?

                                I posted all the items pictures months ago. Even if they come from HG/SS, all the D/P ones are still there. You can find it in the ROM Hacking Resources thread.
