    I've found 1.1.1, downloaded, extracted, then tried compiling and still get error 9 even though the auto check update equals 0
    I don't know anymore. It can be an error in your system, you didn't load a ROM before compiling, some software blocks it etc. There's a hundred reasons I can give you. Try disconnecting from the internet before opening the program.

      Hey Robin! I figured out what the issue was..I was trying to send the ROM to someone. Anyways, do you know how I can assign Bulbasaur to #1 in the Regional Dex? I tried changing the pointers and it didn't work out..

        Does anyone know where the text string for these are stored? And more specifically, the one where it says "POKeMON". I'm using FR.


        And re-upping my question from the last page which is, what would a pointer to an expanded ROM look like? I'm using FR.

        Use PGE's Pokedex Order Editor.

          Yeah, just tried it and it says it's set the order to way I want it, but in actuality it hasn't. Thank you for your help thus far! I can't believe I almost forgot to say that.

            Actually, even I don't really know how it works but, I think it works in the opposite way like setting for example, you want Bulbasaur to be #1 in regional dex, try setting him to #1 on the national dex. That's how I think it works. Oh, if that doesn't work. Try it again in the usual way you should do it, not the one I stated above and make sure, if you made Bulbasaur #1 in regional dex, swap his place with Treecko, the original #1 in the regional dex.

            You know like for example:
            #1 Treecko => #203 Bulbasaur (Not sure) will be
            #1 Bulbasaur => #203 Treecko.

              It doesn't appear to work, but what probably angers me about this the most was that through trial and error, I managed to get it to work ONCE, but forgot my steps because I lost track and now I can't replicate my success.

                FR doesn't matter in this case, a pointer to expanded ROM is the exact same as a pointer to the normal ROM. You just take the address and add 0x8000000 to it. So if your address is 0x1250000, the pointer to it is 0x1250000 + 0x8000000 -> 0x9250000 -> 00 00 25 09

                If you're on FR, you can't do a regional dex. The game doesn't draw any distinctions between the regional order and the National order, so if you edit one, it affects the other too.

                  Actually, he is using Ruby. Is it still the same?

                  If the offset is the usual 0123456 then its 56 34 12 08
                  But in an expanded Rom offsets after 1000000 are like so 1123456 = 56 34 12 09

                    A question for those who may be somewhat proficient with music hacking:

                    Does anyone have a complete list of the instruments used in Pokémon Ruby? I've found one Magnius made a while ago, listing commonly used DirectSound instruments in GBA games (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=139156), but I've realised that Ruby actually doesn't use some of them, such as the Overdriven Guitar and a few others (at least, to my knowledge). Obviously by a lot of trial and error I can figure out what instruments are 'missing' from Ruby, but it'd obviously be quicker if someone already had a list of what instruments are already there to work with? (Assuming of course that I'm correct in my.. assumption).

                      Honestly, no idea. I looked at the code for Ruby's Pokédex and it made me cry. It's THAT bad.

                      At a guess, I'd say it works like you'd expect, with one set of data being for regional and another being for national. One thing I do know is that you can't have any duplicate entries. That can cause crashes or simply cause the dex not to work properly.

                        Ok i'm trying to edit the Gengar and Nidorino in the Fire Red opening, but when I change the sprites that are a tilemap, the tilemap goes all over the place and I have no clue how to fix it

                        I'd post an image of what I'm talking about but I can't post links yet :/

                          At a guess, I'd say it works like you'd expect, with one set of data being for regional and another being for national. One thing I do know is that you can't have any duplicate entries. That can cause crashes or simply cause the dex not to work properly.
                          Oooohh... It's that bad. If that made you cry, it really IS bad.

                          Actually, I haven't seen anyone hack that animation yet except the Logo where it says "GAMEFREAK". That's why you haven't seen any tut around here did you? The only thing we can do about that right now is skip it.

                          Oh and try using Darth TME for creating your tilemap. Maybe that can help.

                            But..I tried to set Bulbasaur to 1 in the regional as well as the national in Ruby. It didn't work. When you say duplicate..what exactly do you mean?

                              He said something like what I said in one of my posts.

That's how I think it works. Oh, if that doesn't work. Try it again in the usual way you should do it, not the one I stated above and make sure, if you made Bulbasaur #1 in regional dex, swap his place with Treecko, the original #1 in the regional dex.

                              You know like for example:
                              #1 Treecko => #203 Bulbasaur (Not sure) will be
                              #1 Bulbasaur => #203 Treecko.

                                ah that should help a bit hopefully, though it does seem that the Japanese Hacking community knows how to hack it as I've seen a few Japanese hacks (mainly Moemon and Touhou puppet Play) with a modified intro, so there is something we've missed if they can do it.

                                  Then I definitely think it's a problem with your tile map. Are you using the original tile map found in the game using unlz? if you are making a custom one, that's definitely the problem.

                                      Then, do this:

                                      Backup your ROM.
                                      Open your ROM in PGE.
                                      Open Pokedex Order Editor.
                                      .
                                      .
                                      .
                                      .
                                      .
                                      Try everything you can and mess up with it.

                                            Backup your ROM.
                                            Open your ROM in PGE.
                                            Open Pokedex Order Editor.
                                            .
                                            .
                                            .
                                            .
                                            .
                                            Try everything you can and mess up with it.
                                            I just tried using everything except the kitchen sink. =(

                                              Then try using the kitchen sink. Maybe that can be the answer. Even small things that look like very worthless can be useful when used right.

                                              And as I said try messing with it like randomly setting this to that, that to this.
