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.
Hacking Ruby.
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!

    Thanks and hope someone can help me.

    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?

                Well fr the moves, you might want to check out this thread.
                http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=263479

                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.

                            Find the special, and stick it in your script.

                            That way he'll give you whatever stater you want, but he'll say whatever you want.

                              Just requoting because I ended up getting the last post before the next page so I don't know if anyone saw it..? (hopefully that won't happen again for this post..) If anyone can help, I'd be most grateful!

                              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)

                              The main problem I find that new hackers have is that the offset has to be a multiple of 4. So it has to end in 0, 4, 8, or C. "123456" is not valid, but "123458" is fine. You get it?

                                I have a problem with XSE 1.1.1 and have searched google and the forums for hours.

                                Ive tried running as administrator and in compatabillity mode for XP SP1, SP2, and SP3 but i allways get this error:

                                "A whole new scipting experience has stopped working."

                                BTW Im running windows 7 SP1

                                NVM I got it fixed. Im just using it through my XP computer through remote app.

                                  (Sorry, I really have no knowledge of this stuff). Do you mean, like, the number for where the sprite is being allocated to, and for the pallete?
                                  If I used freespace finder, and got a space of, say... 8036, I'd change it to 8034/38/30/3C? Or is the offset something different? Sorry!

                                    He means the offset of the image has to end with a 0, 4, 8, or C. The numbers in UNLZ.gba are just for reference, each picture is stored in the game, and the offset is basically wherever the picture is stored. The offsets of the palate and image are shown in UNLZ.gba. And when you use Free Space Finder, and it gives you the offset, make sure it ends in 0, 4, 8 or C...If it doesn't just count up from it until you get to a 0, 4, 8, or C

                                    For example, if it gives you the offset 0x800406, round it up to 0x800408.

                                    Hope that helped
