    Can somebody help me with hacking the back and front sprite of the hg/ss heroine?
    if i open it with pokepic for diamond and pearl i can see her in black and white.
    And with platinum i only see black and white pixels.
    Can somebody explain how to get the original colors?

      - ALL The Connections to the graphics and text (impossible, don't know what files cointais this)

      That's why... There IS a Japanese ROM translation that translates the Game Corner and everything else though... Not sure if I might add different sites though...
      At google, search for "Rykin122" the there is on saying '(lang. hack)' at the title.
      Wait, so you are saying that NOA has removed the slot data completely, and someone had to re-translate from scratch? DAMN YOU NINTENDO, DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!!!!!!!!

                  What are the tools for hacking the heroine back sprite?

                  Also how to hack the "sending Pokemon out to use HM move"* OW sprite

                  *For example: when Lyra send out Wartortle to use Surf, her OW sprite will move right?

                  Any help is appreciated!! [=

                          Hi, Everyone I'm new to all this but i was thinking that Pokemon Heart gold and soul silver need to revamp. Don't get me wrong the remakes were great they just could have been better, don't you think? that why I'm proposing that we do something, i wish to add a new small island to the game, maybe around the Mt. Silver or the indigo plateau were u can battle any gym leader from all 4 regions, every elite 4 member and champion and maybe also every hero and rival.
                          P.S. maybe the frontier brains too
                          So what do u guy think? Anyone think they can help?

                                i don;t think you can edit the starter pokemon with ppre. I need something like A-starter. i want to change cyndaquill, chicorita and totdile.

                                    Doesn't look like a HG/SS hack to me, more like a game programmed from scratch (perhaps using a program like RPG Maker or Game Maker).

                                    If you look carefully, it doesn't appear to be actual 3D, but rather 'mode 7'. If you look at the night-time screen of Rustboro (3rd one on the right), the two buildings at the bottom don't have any perspective. The bottom one is just zoomed in a bit more than the top one; they're both sprites, not 3D models.

                                    That's some of the most impressive mode 7 work I've seen so far, though.

                                    EDIT: It being French and having a dual-screen system reminded me of the Pokémon Script Project for RMXP. Checking on their forum, turns out I was correct: here's the thread. The screenshots in the thread don't appear to have been updated for a while, though.

                                          This is an engine ive been working the last few months, ive decided to release the source so i can start working on my own pokemon project...

                                          You are free to use this engine, as long as you give me some credit

                                          Important:
                                          Before you test the GM6 file remember to include the external files into the project, else you will get several error messages and the game wont run. The external files must be extarcted to a temporary folder created by the game

                                          It also includes a small crappy map editor to make the .MEF files, read the readme.txt file for the controls and info

                                          Download: (the files is a gm6, but its compatible with all later versions, even 8)
                                          LinkA (This one is more updated and secure)
                                          Link B
                                          Gmk users - Thanks Mocgames998!

                                          Please, do post what you think about it, so i can improove, fix, update, etc.. "

                                          does it work???

                                              well this is a start... if he lets us we should work more using Game Maker because of its 3D editing powers. using that source + the crappy editor we could get a one that works!
                                              then we could
                                              "rip" the part of "game maker" that we need to make a "stand along programe"

                                              as for the ruby remake. they must have used a 3D game editor to make it.

                                              You seem to be misunderstood. Game Maker is for making games from scratch. It isn't used for hacking. I think this game was made from scratch to look like DPPT/HGSS but it isn't. You can't rip something from Game Maker that isn't there.

                                                If you're using game maker you shouldn't be in hacks you should be in game dev. Jeeze I thought we were the only ones with the issue.

                                                Anyways the above thing is from PSP DS, which uses Game Maker you guys are getting horribly mislead by a few screens.

                                                  I also want to change the starter in hgss.

                                                  Maybe i can use a hex editor to change the starter if i know the offset.

                                                  But I don't know the offset. So anyone know the offset?
