    a very useful too lindeed!

    I think I need a little help though, I've been looking for the Trainer Backsprites (in Emerald) for days now, I've only been able to find them in Tile Molester but they're scrambled and i can't get them right.

    What I'm asking is, could anyone help me find the location and palette for those sprites for a bookmark? (or a plugin)
    Thanks a lot!

    EDIT:
    I managed to find the backsprites again in Tile Molester, and managed to track their location and bookmarked them in NSE,
    the only thing is that I couldn't find the right palette to go with those sprites;
    I found the right colour palette in Tile Molester, but not it's location (which i need for it to work in NSE)
    Is there any way to find this palette in NSE? or it's location in TM?

    Thanks!

      Okay, so I honestly do not know "where" the palettes are for emerald...

      I do know a couple of things though
      • After a quick search, the sprites start at 0xD66480
      • The palettes are Lz compressed
      • You can use APE to search for them

      EDIT:

      I found part of an old bookmark file with the sprite offsets, but not the palette offsets.

      So it looks like you are going to have to search the ROM, which isn't too hard.

              Happy Birthday to me!
              Well, long story short, NSE 2.X is open source now, as my birthday gift to you...

              Here's the Codeplex page.

              I still need to finish setting up the page/ documentation / set up my source control, but for the time being feel free to download the source and peer into my inner-mind!
              Tomorrow is the end of finals, so the page should be done by next week.

              Enjoy

                Awesome! I was just about to ask you to compile it with better Mono compatability, but I think I'll just do it myself. Although, you did make it a bit difficult with all of those darn P/Invokes. I'm working on making it more Mono compatible for those Linux and Mac users out there.

                EDIT:
                I haz success!

                So far I've gotten around a few Windows-only or .NET only problems. However, some things are broken and I'll fix as soon as possible:
                The eye dropper tool used a P/Invoke I attempted to get around but still needs to be cleaned up, The icon-to-cursor also used a P/Invoke and it was a low priority to fix, and plugins won't load at all (I might have temporarily commented something by accident to test )

                Other than that, the editor works and it can view the ROM quite well. :D

                  That's AWESOME!!!! I'm really super interested in how you ported it to Mono so easily.

                    I finally finished porting last night and I was going to post but right after I finished typing my post the database went into it's "scheduled backup," so I'm posting it today.

                    I managed to finish the port to Mono with a few drawbacks: First, plugins must be compiled for BOTH platforms. There is Mono for Windows, just make sure that if you are a developer to use NO P/INVOKES, as these are not compatible with Mono on other systems. Second, the source code was split in the process, so Mono only works with Mono and not .NET, so if your using Windows, get the main download. This wasn't my intention, but I couldn't find a way to do it otherwise. If you can't compile it yourself feel free to let me compile it.

                    I also made a wrapper around a new INI reader, so the usual classes are the same and work the same, but they use nini, an open-source multiplatform INI editor. Also, updates are disabled for now as well in the Mono version. Until I get a code platform for the source, I'll post them in ZIP files here.

                    Source ZIP
                    Binary ZIP

                    The only shortcomings are the cursors and screen-to-eyedropper thing, which aren't too bad of a setback, but I'll attempt to fix it. Here's a screenie of it in action!

                        Link, I'm new to NSE, and I'm using it to change the hero in Emerald to something else, but I want to change the back sprites so its more realistic. When I was looking in the Navigate section, I found where it was labeled "Backsprites", but the pattete was all one color, I was wondering if you could help with this.

                          Umm.... Hi Link, I'm new to Rom hacking, so I was wondering of you could help me. I love your nse tool. It is the best. Thank you. But I was wondering if you could maybe add a text editor plugin to nse, because I've tried advance text and it never works. I really hope you could do this, it would be very useful.

                            I wouldn't be surprised if it's said somewhere, but I can't find how to edit an overworld sprite with NSE 2X... Anyone feeling helpful?

When I was looking in the Navigate section, I found where it was labeled "Backsprites", but the pattete was all one color, I was wondering if you could help with this.
                            Yeah, I've messed around with this, but still can't figure that out also....

                              As for editing text I'm limited to AdvanceMap and defining PSKV as a script editor.

                              No Sapphire support for Pokémon Sprite Editing yet... there are a few Pokémon with shadows that I want to remove.

                                At first I was a little nervous about using this since I am changing up all the sprites from RS trainers for my FireRed Rom. But this seems to hold up all the unlz.gba tools that I need for it and makes the entire thing a little easier to find. It's even better that I don't have to constantly check in A-Trainer to make sure that the sprites will look correctly.

                                Thank you very much!

                                  Hello, could you, please, mirror your tool?(as in "upload it somewhere else")
                                  Because I tried the link, but the site won't load at all, so I can't download it.
                                  I've also tried to download your tool elsewhere, but those don't have the "Trainer Sprites" option and I desperately want to change at least one trainer sprite T_T I've also tried using Unlz.GBA, but no luck at all.
                                  EDIT: Nevermind, I figured out that it was actually a plugin...

                                      I should mention that NSE has been completely moved to Codeplex. All updates from now on will point to the Codeplex downloads page.

                                      I've been very busy but I'll try to get some work on NSE done.
                                      For one, I've been meaning to implement a "Recycle Bin" feature that would:
                                      - Graphically show data that has been pointed-away-from
                                      - Allow you to restore old data with automatic pointer fixing
                                      - Give the ability to remove certain items from the recycle bin, erasing them from the ROM

                                      Then I also wanted to update the importer, allowing the importing/indexing of non-indexed or more-than-16-color images (similar to ifran view)
                                      While I was at it I was going to create the ability to import from a "region" of an image, thus allowing you to easily use sprite sheets...

                                      Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated as I'm running out of steam for NSE...
                                      - Feel free to fork the project or start a plugin

                                        If you could make an ini file, I could make the program compatible for other language of Rome, but until now has only the Footprint editor to create a ini file. And I can not live programming. if that were possible and hope for a reply.

                                        PS: Is it really an awesome program! It would be a shame if it could use all ...

                                        Please excuse my Engisch.

                                            I have a question. I am having issues with the intro sprites. Your tutorial on editing them worked, but I'd rather not re draw what I've already done...is there a way to insert the intro sprites like the 16 color ones? Have I missed it already being explained? I don't know...so can you help me with that please? thanks.

                                                This doesn't support Emerald!
                                                What the hell is it with people loving Ruby and Sapphire but hating Emerald?!
