    Is it possible to have your hero have a different look in the beginning of the game and then change after a certain event?

    Yes, it is possible, using JPAN's Fire Red hacked engine, although I've never used it for more than one hero OW, it is included in this.

      Hey Community,
      I have a question.
      I want to load a picture with 256 colours.
      Like the worldmap I think.
      So I want to know how i must insert this picture and then how can I display it on the screen. I am not the best in ASM, so I don't want to see a complete code or something, I just want an explanation how I can do it and how it works. After that I had thinked of another way like. I want to load a graphic as background, then there are objects which I can select and if I push a another site will be opened with informations.
      I hope you can help me, sorry for my bad english and also I hope you can understand me.
      Dero

        I have a warp tile that refuses to work right, even though the connections are all fine and stuff...
        What can I do to fix this?

          Has the tile got the right behavior bite that says "Use warp" in Block Editor?

          Warp events need to on/next to specific warp tiles (EG. in a house the pink box that's on the floor has special behavioural bites that activate the warp) so my guess is you need to change that .

            Ah, that might explain it.

            Yeah, that makes sense.

              Hmm, thanks. Seems very complicated though, I don't think I really understand the method. Do I need to patch my Fire Red rom first?

              If I understand correctly I can, after applying the patch, easily change my hero sprite by just using this simple script:
              Quote:
              #org @start
              Setvar 0x4054 0x107
              Setvar 0x4055 0x108
              Setvar 0x4056 0x109
              Setvar 0x4057 0x10a
              Setvar 0x4058 0x10b
              Setvar 0x4059 0x10c
              End
              However, what are the 0x107, 0x108, 0x109 etc? I can't seem to find that part explained. Also, I've been taught that when I use setvar, I use variables higher than 4000. That doesnt seem possible anymore then apparently.

              Help with this is much appreciated!

                Something seriously went screwy. I tried to edit something, backed up the ROM, and now AdvanceMap refuses to open up any of the maps of anything. I think I've just lost all of my progress...

                Well, just keep it for reference, and if you ever find a way that you can fix it, then fix it. But until then start over is the only way you can go.

                  It might have been the way I backed it up.
                  Is there a correct way besides just copy and pasting the ROM? I've noticed that when I do that, then AdvanceMap refuses to open up the copy.

                    You could just use 'Save as' in Advance Map and change the filename.

                      Hi, I'm new here, my name is Luke.
                      I have a couple of questions I really hope I can get help with.
                      1) Is it easier to hack fire red, adding the special/physical divide, certain Sinnoh pokemon, and adding Hoenn and Johto, or hacking Heart Gold, and adding Hoenn. I want to spend a few months/years making a hack where you travel through Kanto, Johto and Hoenn.
                      2) Is there a list of hacking tools that people recommend. I really don't want to annoy anyone, just this site is a little intimidating, though I will get used to it.
                      3) I can backup my own GBA/DS games to make roms (fire red, ruby, Heart Gold, and White), would I need to patch them before hacking?

                      Thank you for your time, it's really appreciated.

                        Also, I'm having troubles with overworlds not being where they're supposed to be... Is there a way I can fix this? (again)
                        Like, I'll put one in at say, 0003 and 000A, but it'll be in a random place other than that when I actually test the game.

                          Sounds like a corrupt rom actually with the not-being-able-to-save and mixed up OW. I suggest starting over (and trying to recover your maps) if you're not too far.

                            jLFAJSDFKSD This would be my 3rd time starting over, then.
                            It allows me to save, but just not save as...
                            Would turning into a compressed file ---> unzipping work as backup?

                              I am in the process of making a hacked version of Pokemon Ruby. I was using Advanced Maps fine until one time I got on and the Header screen looked like this. (Look at attachment) I really need to use the Header page and am really confused with this. Please tell me how to change it back if there is a way.

                                My apologies if this question was already asked but I somehow missed it when I searched...

                                This is a hardware/software program rather than a question about hacking programs, hex, and all that jazz. I'm working from a laptop, and it's also my computer for school. Are the tools, programs, pictures, and other hacking data going to interfere with my school things on this machine? Or, framed differently, does game hacking require a ton of space or a spectacular image card? Or will I be alright using my little laptop?

                                Thanks, folks.

                                  I want to load a picture with 256 colours.
                                  Like the worldmap I think.
                                  So I want to know how i must insert this picture and then how can I display it on the screen. I am not the best in ASM, so I don't want to see a complete code or something, I just want an explanation how I can do it and how it works. After that I had thinked of another way like. I want to load a graphic as background, then there are objects which I can select and if I push a another site will be opened with informations.
                                  I hope you can help me, sorry for my bad english and also I hope you can understand me.

                                  Loading pictures larger than 64x64 sprites requires tilemaps. And using tilemaps requires ASM. I don't personally know how to do it, but feel free to look up the GBATEK and teach yourself.

                                  If I understand correctly I can, after applying the patch, easily change my hero sprite by just using this simple script:


                                  However, what are the 0x107, 0x108, 0x109 etc? I can't seem to find that part explained. Also, I've been taught that when I use setvar, I use variables higher than 4000. That doesnt seem possible anymore then apparently.

                                  Help with this is much appreciated!
                                  If you read the manual, you'd know what you're setting the variables to. You set them to be what you want your overworld to change in to. It's set up like: 0xTTPP, with TT being the table number, and PP being the picture number. So, if you wanted to change the players OW to be picture 17, set variable 0x4054 to 0x0017. Also, if you don't know what I'm talking about with "table number", just make it 00.

                                  Is there a correct way besides just copy and pasting the ROM? I've noticed that when I do that, then AdvanceMap refuses to open up the copy.
                                  File > Create Backup. It'll save it as a .bak file. When you need to use it, change the .bak into a .gba, open both in a hex editor, and copy the entire contents of the backup onto the original. Thats what I do, since using the backup after you turned it into a .gba, it doesn't work on emulators for whatever reason.

                                  @newmexico I've hacked on really, really bad computers and as long as the programmes are compatible with the OS you're using, you should have no trouble. Though I dont know if having ROMs on a school computer is the best idea, you might get into trouble. Maybe lol.

                                    I was able to successfully hack a ROM on my previous computer, which was a tiny little netbook, and I had nearly 30 tools installed on it. My emulator worked smoothly as well, at least for GBA games and below. DS games lagged like nuts, though.

                                      I don't know what you mean with table number. But I think I get it. I read the 0x107 as 107, but it's actually a 1 and 07, where 1 is the table number?

                                      Also: I gave myself a bicycle very early in the game but now I can't seem to use it, even though I am outside. I get the OAK: You can't blabla message. I checked the header but the outside maps have the same options as in the regular Fire Red rom. Cave: Regular, Weather: Regular weather, Type: Route, Fight Type: Random.

                                      What causes this? Do you need to have a Pokémon or something. I can't seem to use my Running Shoes either.

                                        Yes, you're right about the table thing. JPANs hack engine uses a table for OWs, which lets you have a lot more than 255 different OWs, like in a normal firered rom. For the defaults, AKA ones in the original game, use table value 0x00. If you add more tables, you'd use 0x1, 0x2, etc.

                                        I just tested this in my rom, by giving myself the Bicycle before getting anything, and it worked fine. I do know that Running Shoes depends on the "show name on entering" byte. From the Running Shoes Inside Buildings post, courtesy of Hackmew:

                                        I'll explain briefly what happens. First of all, the "Show name on entering" byte is loaded into r1 and r0 is set to 0x2. Then r0 is ANDed with r1. Here are the possible results:

                                        Code:
                                        0x2 AND 0x0 = 0x0
                                        0x2 AND 0x1 = 0x0
                                        0x2 AND 0x2 = 0x2
                                        0x2 AND 0x3 = 0x2
                                        0x2 AND 0x4 = 0x0
                                        0x2 AND 0x5 = 0x0
                                        0x2 AND 0x6 = 0x2
                                        0x2 AND 0x7 = 0x2
                                        0x2 AND 0x8 = 0x0
                                        0x2 AND 0x9 = 0x0
                                        0x2 AND 0xA = 0x2
                                        0x2 AND 0xB = 0x2
                                        0x2 AND 0xC = 0x0
                                        0x2 AND 0xD = 0x0
                                        0x2 AND 0xE = 0x2
                                        0x2 AND 0xF = 0x2


                                        As you can see, a specific pattern is repeating itself. Going on with the routine, we can see r0 is compared with 0x0. If equal, no Running Shoes
                                        Basically, Running Shoes only works when the values after being ANDed equal 0x2. so, 0x2, 0x3, 0x6, 0x7, 0xA, 0xB, 0xE, and 0xF all work fine.

                                          I'm reading metapod23's tutorial about adding new OW sprites, but it all seems very confusing at the moment. But I'll try to get it through trial and error.

                                          I've tried the bicycle again a few times, but no matter what I try, I keep the same error. And with the Running Shoes, what are the r0 and r1? I don't understand where they came from.
