    Use A-Text, there are 9 strings that make up his entire intro speech. They are located at the following, in order:
    0x2C89FB
    0x5E8692
    0x2C8A1F
    0x2c8bD0
    0x2C8BDD

    0x2CEC2A
    0x2C8C7A

    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.)
    I don't think the palette that Oak uses in the intro is unLZ compressed, at least Birch in Ruby/Emerald isn't, so I don't think it will be found in unLZ. You can use VBA's palette viewer and APE's search feature to pinpoint the offset where his palette is. Since the image is 256 colors it can be a bit tricky to find, which is why the offset hasn't been posted around here.

    The games simply uses the "giveitem" command followed by "end". Place that script in the Pokeball OW sprite on your map and it should work.

        [also posted this in the request thread]
        can someone link me to a working download (or the thread) of JPAN's clean Fire Red patch?
        (the one that removes all scripts and stuff)

        i can't seem to find it anywhere. :\
        (already did much searching along with going through most of JPAN's posts)

          Bumping this, because it never got a response when I posted it a couple of pages ago, and also because the subsequent thread I made was never approved and posted by a moderator (for reasons still unbeknownst to me).

          TLDR: I need help modifying the properties of specific moves in HG/SS. Could someone walk me through it, please?

          Full: Ok, so I understand that there really isn't a specific attack editor for HG/SS, yet. At least, the one in PPRE isn't finished. Anyway, I heard that it's possible to take a rom of Diamond/Pearl and use Attack Editor DS to modify specific moves in those games, extract the waza.tbl.narc file, and then replace the corresponding a/0/1/1 file in HG/SS with the waza.tbl.narc one. Two issues with this.

          First, I've tried using Attack Editor DS with a clean Diamond rom, but nothing ever saves. I even attempted to modify one attack at a time, saving and closing out of the program before moving onto the next attack. No dice.

          Second, I've very, very little experience with hex editing programs like Crystal Tile 2. More like clueless, actually. Upon opening the rom file in CT2, I'm never quite sure when to extract/input certain files, or even search for specific things within directories. Like, I've seen posts were people will say to search for pointer/offset (as an example) 0x123456a, but I can't for the life of me find any sort of thing in that format. All the offsets I see are in a 012345678 (no "x") format.

          So, hypothetically speaking, say I wanted to modify the attack "Pound" from base 40 power to base 50 in my Soul Silver rom. Could someone walk me through the process of doing that, with the assumption that I have the mental capacity of a 10 year-old?

              You can probably go to that offset in A-Text and edit it there. Or, you can use a Ruby char table to convert your text to hex, although A-Text does that for you.

                    I used my PKSV to fight a celebi. But whenever I catch celebi it doesn't disappear, but when i run away or beat it, it says mewtwo flown away and it disappears.

                      here is an example script that you could base it off of (in XSE format):

                      Spoiler:
                      #dynamic 0x8000000

                      #org @start
                      lock
                      giveitem 0x0 0x1 MSG_OBTAIN
                      hidesprite 0x?
                      setflag 0x1204
                      release
                      end


                      make sure the poke ball ID matches the setflag number, this makes the sprite disappear from the map forever (unless you use a clear flag)


                      And thanks to KhaosKnight and redriders180 for helping with my map problem, it works!
                      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                      Alright, I know this question has come up in the past, just not in this thread....

                      In ruby, would you need to use ASM to determine which battle music comes up when facing a certain trainer? I am trying to give a certain trainer a certain battle music, but I can't figure it out...

                        I was wondering if it is possible to expand the space of tileset 1 in the right box of Advancemap?
                        What I'm trying to do is instead of having to find all of the Pokemon center and mart tiles in the mess of tileset 1 I want to just add mine to the bottom of the tileset like most people do with the empty space available in tileset 2. I hope that this question isn't to confusing.

                          At the moment, it is impossible to resize that tileset. I suppose with ASM and repointing, it COULD be possible, but I think it is a limitation by the hardware as a whole, though not 100% sure.

                            I'm having a bit of trouble with palettes. Using JPAN's hacked engine, I inserted one new palette. I recently edited palettes 3-A (aka the eight reserved palettes after the hero's and the reflection one) to my liking. However, I did not put the OW with that custom palette on the map yet. I know about the hardware limitations for one custom palette per screen, and in this case, I used none in this map. But when I go to palette viewer on the vba, I see that my custom palette has somehow overwritten palette three, even though it wasn't even used in the map.

                            On a side note, after doing these palette changes, for some reason on certain maps using my custom ows, they dissaper when walking on certain tiles, as if they somehow got set to "00" rather than "tile covered by hero". Idk if it's a direct cause of this or something different, but if anyone could help with that as well, it would be greatly appreciated. :)

                              You're complicating it too much. All you need is this part:

                              #dyn 0x740000
                              #org @start

                              checksound
                              cry CELEBI 2

                              Make sure that you set celebi's person ID to 807. The person event number can be found on A-MAP incase you didn't know.

                                Okay, I solved my own problem with the dissapearing OWs, I messed up the hex in the OW table...simple mistake lol.

                                As for the palette ordeal, I'm still stuck.
                                The custom palette, if I'm not mistaken, should take one of the last, if not the last, placeholder in the palette viewer, instead of taking over an existing palette. How come when I added this one, it took over one of the reserved palettes? I don't have any other custom palettes on the map...and even when that OW is not on the map, the custom palette is still there overwriting a reserved one.

                                  I have two big errors, help would be appreciated D: because I'm completely bamboozled.

                                  First of all, the battle screen error which is horrendous to look at.


                                  Second, the trainer theme error, I assembled and imported the .s files in Sappy, and looped it, and it plays fine in Sappy, but it gives me a HORRIBLE noise above the track. I tried a backup ROM and repointed, and stuff, I even checked the .S file and there's nothing wrong with it! (be warned, it's loud and an atrocity to listen to):
                                  http://www.filexoom.com/showfile-31429/error.wav

                                  ED: So um, the original link 404s D: so here's a re upload.

                                    Occasionally, when I insert a new map into my ROM (right now I'm using Ruby, I've used Emerald and Fire Red before), I make the map too big or something, and it ends up overwriting and corrupting another map, or it screws with the number of blocks in the second tileset. Is there a way to keep this from happening? Maybe using a ROM base with all the scripts and maps removed, so there's no danger of overwriting stuff? If so, where could I find a base like that?

                                      Is there a place where i can write about my own idea of a hack and get peoples opinion on it? i know there is the showcase forum but i dont have any progress yet and i just wanted to start writing and sharing my ideas and what i think its about and stuff. i hope there is such a section since i dont have made any big steps in making the hack, just putting together ideas, story ideas and world ideas.

                                      greetz.

                                          All you need is to edit mart script.
                                          There will be something like pokemart command and lots of #raw 0xsomething.
                                          Just add #raw 0xhex number of item and that item will be available in the Mart.

                                              If you want to hack, you're going to have to familiarize yourself with hex. It's what the game is built on.

                                              I believe XSE comes with items.rbh file which can be opened with XSE and you will see hex numbers of items there.
