    Do you have suggestions for things I could try?

    Could I get away with just editting the dumped .txt as if it were just like all the other text in the game? i.e ignore the missing letters and line breaks?

    Hello pipz.
    I have a few questions that I hope anyone can help me.

    1. I am editing the title screen of a Ruby ROM. I have done the tileset for the titlescreen and already done inserting it in the game via Unlz-GBA and repointing. Now, I wish to know where should I insert the .raw... I have arranged the tiles of the title screen through NTME.

    2. How am I able to remove the "Item" and "Save" from the Start Menu?

    Thanks and hope someone can help me. ;)

      I'd myself check how doing that affects the game first.
      Then you'll see if some of the letters are actually loaded twice.
      *See also what the line breaks are for

      Find a table file for Ruby, download it and then search for that text.
      After that, find a pointer leading to the text which leads to, very likely, assembly code of the menu.
      Next thing to do is to figure out what to do with the assembly code.

        Hi, apologies in advance if this is a completely dumb question that's been answered countless times. I've looked at heaps of tutorials and looked around for anything with the same problem but I can't really find anything that's specifically like mine.
        So, this is my first time editing a ROM, I'm editing Ruby version.
        I'm trying to put in edited sprites for the gym leaders in unLZ. I've followed the tutorials about how indexing it, finding free space, fixing the pointers.
        And I can get one gym sprite showing up fine.


        but if I try and import more than one leader's sprite they start messing up. The colours go crazy or if I'm on pokenav the page won't load at all and freezes.

        I have no idea what to do. I thought maybe I had to put the in free space that was far away from eachother, but that doesn't seem to help.
        Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? The first time I add a new sprite is perfectly fine, but I don't know what's happening the second time to make it mess up round when I'm doing the exact same process.

        (I'd give images but I have to make 15 posts beforehand, and to be honest I only joined the site to see if I can get help with this + I'm too distracted to go out and post right now + I'm not sure if I'm allowed to bypass it by putting in spaces in links or if that's against the rules)

          I want to start ROM hacking. I do have basic knowledge, as I used to mess around back in the days.
          Which rom is most editable? Which rom can I use most tools for?

          basically, which rom to hack, as my first hack ever :)!

          Is there any essentials thread or something like the RPG Maker?
          Which Script editor to use?
          Which map editor?
          all the essentials :)

          Specially which Script editor to use. I want to change a lot of things and learn my way up :D

            I think Ruby is the best rom for editing, but no one cares about it. Most people here know alot about FireRed. IMO best script editor is XSE and best map editor is AM 1.92.

            Anyways, I have a problem too.
            I think it's a common problem, I remember encountering it in Light Platinum once. Not sure when. In some places, when I turn menu on/kick wild Pokemon's butt/make a trainer eat dirt, game glitches like hell. For example, game's camera going insane, main character's clonning. I have no idea why is it happening. But I pointed out that it happens mostly in places where I put new events.
            Hope someone helps.

            Hm, do any person events have the "look down" movement type? If so, change it to "No Movement", it makes the ow look down without the glitches.

              Impressive, it worked.
              Thank you very much! I thought it was something bigger. Why "look down" movement type causes these glitches?
              You don't need to respond, but it just makes me think...

              Not sure, I think it's just a glitch code that Lu-Ho incorrectly labelled, though I'm no expert haha. Glad to have helped!

              The best way would be to just test by messing with the pointers near it, to be honest. It doesn't take long to find the right one. :)

                  http://www.4shared.com/rar/lcgKM8Q5/XSE_Upload.html?

                  That's the latest version of XSE, 1.1.1.

                  Actually, Google doesn't help for that. Google only seems to have version 1.0.0

                    I'm kind of just messing around with a FireRed ROM in Advance Map, but when I try to load it in VisualBoy, it sets me up as though I'm playing Sienna with my party and items etc., however my changes are still in effect.

                    Is the ROM in the same place as Sienna's .sav file? If so, move the ROM into a separate folder.

                        I'm just wondering if it is possible to add IV Gen moves into a Fire Red ROM? Also does anybody know how to use the Day and Night system?

                          I'm just wondering if it is possible to add IV Gen moves into a Fire Red ROM? Also does anybody know how to use the Day and Night system?
                          Well fr the moves, you might want to check out this thread.

                          And the D&N, you can just apply it using the tool found here to your rom and it will work.

                            Thanks for the links to the first question asking about moves. I already have the Day and Night tool, I just don't know how to use it and can't find any tutorials anywhere.

                              Oh right, well after its inserted the time will do its work. But if you want to use it in a script to check for time, you need get the values of the designated byte and compare it to whatever you want.

                                Uhh... Yea I can't script yet. I'm wanting to get the tiles, sprites, Pokemon states, moves, evos, etc, and other things done before I do scripting. So I do not understand what you are trying to say. I know how to hack pretty decently just never really worked on scripting yet. Are there any tutorials anywhere for it?

                                    Well, everytime I went on that site in the past my internet browser always said translate? So I might be able to translate it, hopefully.
