    You shouldn't be using Ctrl+F (find), you need to use Ctrl+G (go to). In this tutorial HackMew has given you the offsets which you need to change to 00 rather than a line of code which you're supposed to find for yourself.

      Well, ctrl+G won't let me use letters, it calls them invalid digits.

      Make sure you're searching in HEX values rather than decimal.

        I'm searching in HEX alright. That;'s the default thing it searches in.

        In that case I'd suggest trying to find the offset manually by just scrolling down throughout the ROM until reaching and changing it accordingly. It is more tedious but it will definitely work.

        If you don't want to do that then perhaps you could try downloading another HEX editor as the one you're using doesn't want to agree with you :P

          How would this effect the Pokémon Center link rooms (Trade Center, Colosseum etc)?
          I mean would it cause bugs if you tried to run while in link with another game?

            No, I don't believe it! Try with VBA-Link!

            EDIT: Ok! I've tested it with VBA-Link! Appearently there are no bugs! So, run everywhere! =)

              So does the game you're linking with show the character running, and the double movement speed?
              You know what? I'll see for myself.

                    Seriously? It's called a hex editor. HxD is the best, but GoldFinger supports .tbl files. Heck, there is even hex editor on the app store if you want to hack on the go.:D

                          Will they work on ROMs that have been previously run through a randomizer, or do I have to edit them first?

                            All a hex editor does is open the game up in it's binary code (as hexidecimals of course). It doesn't matter what you do to the game, you could corrupt the game beyond repair and the hex editor will still open the file.

I'm using Emerald, and I had to use GoldFinger because when trying to use HxD, it required the admin password, and even when my dad entered it, it would say "I have some issues starting up.

                              Is 1.7.7.0 the latest version of HxD?

                                You need to go to 0811A1E8 and replace 08 with 00. However, Hex Editors will tell you that doesn't exist, because all they do is display the rom - when using the goto function, just remove the beginning 08.

                                  Yes, I have since figured out that they most certainly will tell you that. For future reference, for anybody that needs clarification, in order to go to 0811A1E8, you have to only search the last six digits (11A1E8). Then your editor will take you to a byte labeled "08". That is what you replace with "00".
