And what if that first color is NOT black like in the tut?

    Thanks in advance.
    Keep to the tutorial mate
    Ok on Ifranview goto image - decrease color depth- choose custom and put 239 in it and ok.
    Goto image and palette(i think) then edit palette change the first color to a bright color, (he didn't say the first color was black! He said change the first color) like he said in the tutorial.
    Then save under different name.
    Copy and paste your UN INDEXED title screen and paste it on your indexed image and save it. (by the way Windows 7 paint doesn't support indexed files)
    There you go, you have indexed your title screen :D
    Hope it works :D

      Now we have to index the image you can do this by opening the image in irfanview.
      Then go to the menu in irfanview.
      Go to image -> decrease color depth
      Then uncheck floyd dithering and set colors to 239.




      Next while your still in irfanview go to image -> palette -> the edit palette.
      edit the first color to a bright color by double clicking it.



      Then go to image -> palette -> the export palette.
      And save the palette.
      Then save your image with a different name then your unindexed image. Next open the unindexed image and the indexed image in paint. Copy and paste the unindexed image on to the indexed image and hit save.
      Follow that, it's in the tutorial.. :/

        Thanks for the clarification. Turns out I was doing the indexing wrong. I didn't switch the setting to "custom" when I put in 239. I will try this tut again soon, hopefully with success this time!

                Okay, I tried it again, and I'm almost sure I've done everything correctly. However, I get this 'flashing screen' just before the intro screen:

                I think it is the raw2011.raw, because in unLZ.gba it looks like this:

                Does anyone else have this problem too, or is everything crisp clear with you guys (and girls )?

                  It needs to be dividable by 8.

                  meaning the width and height need to be dividable by 8.
                  Everyone else with their issue read all steps over till you do it good.
                  As the steps described are perfectly the required steps.

                    Try not load the raw in that, use the 1x1 in that thing, import the transparent in the tutorial files

                    Well, in trying to get this to work in Emerald, I found a couple things out.

                    The one before frontier pass f's it up (Around 2613)

                    Also a relevant one at 2615 or around it (I believe it's relevant, does the same thing as the last to the title screen)

                    Don't know if that'll help any, just trying to get this figured out so I can implement it.

                      Well, that partly fixed it. The grey stripes are gone, but some other pixels appeared. They are less disturbing, but I would still like to get rid of them. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!



                      EDIT: so I found a way to get rid of the pixels, that is by replacing one of the images (don't ask me which, either Charizard, or one of the two 'blurry' images) with a copie, but then blanked out with the transparent color (lila). And I also replaced the image after the blinking image (140), which are the flames, with a complete blue image of the same size. So the dots and pixels were gone for a great part, but some other blurry tiles appeared right there where the flames should be. I can post an image if someone wants to....

                              The last time I posted here was a couple of months ago...and today I finally got this tutorial to work. I gave up for a while but came back to it today and got it right. aSeRo141414, your videos were helpful in my success. Everyone who tried to help me, thank you. :D

                                  Can you use this to create your own world maps? I already have my map in full colour and at a size of 240x160.

                                    Nice tutorial but alas the one thing I was really hoping to see was away to edit the 16th indexed slot. I have spent hours in the DMI and trying to use asm to edit that slot. I was able to edit the last 4 pallets for that slot, but for some reason the game overrides the rest; This drives me crazy. :'c

                                      I'm sorry, but your tutorial seems a bit rushed. Some parts you barely explained, and that makes it really hard to follow.
                                      My final result was completely messed up, due to the fact that half the time I was just so confused about what you were trying to say.

                                      Like, for example;
                                      "Then go on like that and hit replace until you had all 16 indexes."
                                      Go on like what? I don't understand. In the first one you were supposed to just import the palette, and in the second you were supposed to click the arrow.
                                      So should I click the arrow for all the others? Or..?
                                      And this too;
                                      "
                                      Then go to offset 00EAB8C4 click it on 256 colors then click import bitmap.
                                      Then this popup should appear:"
                                      You skipped the whole import bitmap step, what are we supposed to import?

                                      Sorry if I'm sounding slightly rude.. I trust that you put effort into this. But please explain a bit further, some people are completely new to this.

                                        I think he kind of rushed that too. So for each index, find the offset in the box below that post, and replace each index spot with the right index in your custom pallet.

                                            I did this tut a while ago, and it says all 16 indexes, but there are only 15 offsets. So you only need to replace at 15 indexes. But to clarify what shiny quagsire said, basically you need to replace all of the palettes each at a different index. So for the first palette, put in the offset and replace at index 1. For the next offset, do the same except click the arrow to make it at index 2. And so on until you have replaced all of the palettes.

But to clarify what shiny quagsire said, basically you need to replace all of the palettes each at a different index. So for the first palette, put in the offset and replace at index 1. For the next offset, do the same except click the arrow to make it at index 2. And so on until you have replaced all of the palettes.
                                              I understood that. What do I do in Index 3? Do I click the arrow 3 times? I'm sorry, I'm just so confused.
