        If any of you didn't already know how, you can change the the little icon that shows where you are (the players head, i can't really put it into a technical term). If you've changed the sprite of the hero, it will still appear on the map as the original hero's head. you can change this on fire red by going into UNLZ-GBA and going to "187" for the male hero and "188" for the female hero. Just incase.

            You have to search hex, not a string

                      I AM A COMPLETE AND TOTAL BAKA!

                      I do blame OP a bit on this because OP is not clear on the final step what to do.

                      On the final step OP says to click "Export Palette". I foolishly assumed that meant to click NOTHING BUT Export Palette.
                      If OP would be so kind as to edit the OP so it says. "Be sure to click all four options, Explore Image, Auto Abort, Fix Pointers and Export Palette."

                      When I clicked all four clicks it worked!
                      Funny how one misleading sentence can break an entire tutorial eh?

                      Now I need some help again, when I import my tilemap the colors are all messed up!
                      I don't understand what I am doing wrong. I exported a snapshot of the Kanto World Map from VBA and use those colors in the creation of my tileset and tilemap. Every time I import the tilemap into my ROM with UNLZGBA the colors are all messed up! Please help.

                        Thanks. Helped me inserting my world map on a very comfortable way. I remember how to insert the map by following HackMews Guide, that was such a pain xD.

                            You simply open the image in irfanview and decrease color depth to 16. The world map can only use 16 colors.

                                That's kind of lazy if you ask me.

                                But, the problem with that is you don't get any learning experience. What step are you stuck on? Any errors? A screenshot?

                                    Too bad then. No one will do it for you. Unlz is simple to use, so is Irfanview. And also, can't really call "ow editing mapping and movement scripts" specialties. If you don't care enough to even open a program and make two clicks, then there is no point to hacking.

                                    Once more, as for indexing, it's really this simple:
                                    open your image in the program irfanview
                                    click image>decrease color depth
                                    choose 16colors
                                    uncheck floyd-steinbeck dithering
                                    save

                                        I'll excuse your language for now. (It's about 10x worse at my school. X( )

                                        It looks like you inserted the graphics correctly, which is good. Now you need the tilemap, which I'm not sure you inserted. Go into NTME, and open your tilemap, and make sure it's in 8bpp mode, and save. Next go into UNLZ, and import your RAW. Click Write to ROM, and uncheck everything but export image. Now go to the image offset textbox, and paste a free space offset. !!Remember this offset!! Now this part wasn't well explained by the author.

                                        Take your free space offset in notepad. I'll use an example of 123456, to clearly show you.

                                        123456.

                                        Now divide it into three even sections:

                                        12 34 56

                                        Now swap the first and last sections, and add 08:

                                        56 34 12 08

                                        Now you have a pointer! Now go into a Hex Editor (I recommend HxD. Just google it, and download it. Don't worry, it's completely free. ) In that last spoiler in the first post, (The one with the crazy numbers,) Locate your ROM Header. If you are using an English fire red, you'll use this one:

                                        Code:
                                        Search in: POKEMON FIREBPRE
                                        $3F089C
                                        $3F0AFC
                                        $3F0C0C
                                        $3F0CF0
                                        Now take the first offset, and do what you did to the free space offset. This is called repointing.

                                        3F089C

                                        3F 08 9C

                                        9C 08 3F 08

                                        Now you would search for those hex values in a hex editor. (In HxD, press Ctrl+F, and select hex values instead of text string.) Search, and you should find the same exact value. Now take your free space pointer we made, (56 34 12 08) and replace the old value we found.

                                        Reply if it worked or didn't work.

                                            The red city tiles for me don't fit exactly! they are 8x8 (pixels) when i go to NTME they don't fit in one click (if you know what i mean) will it still work when you make flying permissions and the box-click thing (wat u use to choose where you fly)

                                              It's a good tutorial, but I have only one problem and if BIG On can change the pallet. If I export Palette Act with VisualBoy Advance, and I search in APE he cannot find pallet ?

                                              Sorry for my bad english.

                                                  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.
                                                  1) 208x144 or 192x144? What makes the difference? The type of game?

                                                  2) The map cannot have more than 256 tiles? But the image you dumped off of unLZ has 320?

                                                  3) Can repeated "tiles" be rotations or reflections?

                                                    Er.. I thought this would be pretty straight forward but whenever I define a new offset for the map it glitches my title screen for some reason.

                                                    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!

                                                    I really don't understand what this part is trying to say at all.
