      Oh I'm hacking fire red if that helps

      Thanks in advance :)
      Follow >Dante<'s tutorial on how to edit the intro hero except instead of changing the hero change the prof.
      The unLZ-GBA number is around 342 and the APE offset is 004623B4.

You go on Hack Rom Tools (it's in italian, but it's not very difficult, I'm translating it)->Click on Hack Tools->Click on the Game Boy Advance->You search in the list Advance Text and you download it!
        Then you unzip it and it's ready to use!
        Hi, i'm new here.

        I've been looking for a text editor of any kind for Pokemon Fire Red all around the web, and have found nothing but Advance Text, and it does not work. even the one on your site does not work for me.
        Any time i download Advance text and double click the EXE, it gives me an error stating

        "component Comdlg32.ocx or one of it's dependencies is not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid."

        Is there any alternative to Advance text, or is there a way to fix Advance text to make it usable?

        i've been working on getting a Fire Red hack going, but this is important and i can't find something that works.

        PS: i've also seen the youtube vidoes where people say to put Comdlg32.ocx or the other one into system32 or sysWOW64 and use the Run or command prompt to register the file manually, but even that doesn't work.
        should i just give up hacking?

          I'm pretty sure that same file is in another program, that's how I got a-text to work...I dragged and dropped it. I'm pretty sure it's in Overworld Editor: Rebirth edition. Download that, and then drag and drop the file.

              your right, it comes with ComCTL32.ocx, but it says that it needs (or something isn't working with) ComDLG.ocx
              and where do i paste the files to? the INI folder for A-Text?

                What does it mean in A-map when it says "AvancedMapError(5): Value $FFFFFFFF is not a pointer!"? And how do I fix it? It's messing up all of my gameplay for that map. All I did was remove the wild pkmn data.

                NEVER remove wild Pokémon data... this is what happens... if you don't want Pokémon to appear, just set the frequency to 0% but NEVER remove it...

                @Ksiazek Bartlomiej: Jambo's working on patch. So far it's not possible throughout normal meanings.

                  Yeah, trust me, won't happen again. The only thing I'm worried about, is that a similar thing happened to me before, where I deleted a map connection (which I also won't do again), and it started messing with other maps, completely distorting maps and tilesets. To fix the wild pkmn data problem, I just re-inserted the same map into the bank, and that one works fine. So, as long as I leave the other one that messed up alone, everything else should continue to work fine, right?

                    Actually, by definition in the ROM, it isn't possible to set the frequency to 0. It automatically raises it to a base value if you set it to 0.

                          Hey.

                          Can anyone link me to a download for a GBA Pokemon Trainer Editor please?

                          The toolbox section of this website is awful, 80% of the links are outdated or broken... Downloading programs is a pain. Every PET and A-Trainer download I have tried has been instantly been removed by Mcafe for being a trojan.

                          Um, that's not the sections fault. Many of the tool creators have moved on, it's not our fault that the links expire.

                          Anyway, here's a link to A-Trainer. http://www.sendspace.com/file/29eu58

                            You can edit the images by downloading NSE Classic. There is a Bookmark under the Hero Interactions folder, called Exclamations, that has the image for your editing pleasure :D

                              i found a solution!
                              (ONLY for windows 7, i can't help if you're on a different OS)

                              all you have to do is download the file that A-Text says it has a problem with, then paste it in the folder that A-Text is in.
                              after that, copy/paste it in your system32 folder (windows 7) and run A-Text as administrator!

                              FINALLY!

                                Can anyone link me to a ASM download? Sorry I'm asking again, but the toolbox doesn't seem to have it, and I can't move forward with my hack without it. It would be very appreciated.

                                all you have to do is download the file that A-Text says it has a problem with, then paste it in the folder that A-Text is in.
                                after that, copy/paste it in your system32 folder (windows 7) and run A-Text as administrator!
                                That was really a problem for someone? o.O
                                It works for every Windows OS, if you download the missing part and put it into system32 A-Text will work.

                                ASM isn't downloadable... ASM is a programming language.

                                  Then how would I go about editing it in my hack?

                                      Is there anyway to create a level condition for item-evolutions, so they need to be a certain level before they can evolve with an item?

                                        I'm having a small issue with the intro sprite for Prof. Oak (intro speech sprite).
                                        i've found the sprite (342 and 256 color mode in unLZ) but i can't find the right palette for it.
                                        is there anything special i need to do in order to find the correct palette, or am i just doing something wrong?

                                        here's a pic of what it looks like with the default palette for it.

                                        TL;DR is there any way to get the right palette for this?
                                        (btw, i've already tried using the Next Pal and Previous Pal buttons, and all the palettes that load don't look like they are for oak.)

                                          Does anyone know how to fix the part when the hero shrinks down into the over world?
                                          It is supposed to be all white but for some reason mine has black squares in it.
                                          Can someone help?

                                            Is there a quick and easy way to make items in the overworld? The way I've been doing it is using setflag after you pick up the item, but I'm pretty sure that's not what the game does... (and it sometimes causes things to disappear before I've even picked them up)
