    Then you need to write a new script or just repoint and rewrite the movements. If oak isn't showing up, then you need to create a nee sprite if you deleted it, or deal with the flags would hide it if it does still exist.

    Spoiler:
    It is reading random bytes as text. If Physo Boost is nit the last move, don't worry about it. If there are moves after it, then you most likely corruped the data that stores attack names.

    Cheers.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it appeared that there was a few unknown bytes at the beginning of my repointed attack move table, so I just changed them to the original and its fixed. Just letting people know in case this happens to anyone else (in the unlikely event).
    @ForeverDash- you most likely have a similar issue to this if Phsyco Boost is not the last move created in Gen IiI.

      Hi everybody i'm new so dont hesitate to tell me where to post my question if this is not the right place for it
      This question might have been asked before, but i did look on the forum, and after quite a few pages seen i didnt find my answer
      The problem is that recently i changed from PC to Mac, and while i did not have any problem to find a good PC gba emulator, on mac, it is already much harder to find.
      I have tried boycott advance (it has an awfully crappy sound on mac --') and a few VBA versions, but they didnt really convince me at all
      Did any of you guys had the same problem as me and found a solution, or am i doomed to play with bad mac emulators :'( ?

      I have a solution just for you. If you have Java, then that's good. Download Java VirtualBox here.

      Then go online and search for a Windows OS .iso file, and use the Java VirtualBox tutorial here.

      After it's set up, just put VisualBoy on your virtual machine, as if it were your own computer.

      I can't give you any more links, because it'd be against the forum rules.

      If you have any more questions, you can VM/PM me.

      Edit: If you don't want to take up a decent amount of space on your computer for using Windows applications, you could use WINE Compatibility Service or this rather glitchy version of VBA for Mac.

      Is it possible to change the old man's backsprite according to gender? Or just multiple switches?

          This is not the place to ask this. This is *ROM* hacking. What you are asking for is *RAM* hacking. Find a different location.

          Use the backsprite switcher in JPAN's engine. That is the only way right now.

          I just checked. Psycho Boost is the last move created in Gen III. Just don't touch anything past it and you should be fine.

            This would go in the script before you called the old man battle:

            checkgender
            compare 0x800D 0x0
            If 0x1 goto @boy
            Compare 0x800D 0x1
            If 0x1 goto @girl
            (Rest of regular script)

            #org @[email protected]
            Setvar 0x[Var you picked for backsprite switch] 0x[Backsprite # you want, that is in the table you made]
            return

                    Make sure that the map bank number and map number and coordinates are in hex, not decimal.
                    Also, put waitstate on the next line.

                    Code:
                    #org @example
                    warp 0xA 0x21 0xFF 0xC 0x2
                    waitstate
                    end

                      You can give the player Battle Points by using the following commands in XSE:

                      Code:
                      setvar 0x8004 0xYY // Where 0xYY is the number of Battle Points you wish to give
                      special 0x1CA

                      In addition to what jsziede said above, ensure that the map you're warping to isn't corrupted. Try walking through a regular door warp on the overworld in addition to warping through scripting. If you still wind up with a black screen then the chances are that your map's data has been corrupted somewhere along the way. You will have to reinsert the map or repoint any misdirected footers if this is the case.

                      In terms of what game is the best to hack, that's a pretty subjective question. However, just about anybody will tell you that Fire Red has the most compatibility with tools. If that's all you're looking for then go for FR, but don't let accessibility be the only deciding factor when deciding which ROM to hack.

                        You are changing the wrong thing, there should not be any FFs there to start off with. The person who explained this best is JPAN. Download a copy of his hacked engine v1.1 and open up the .doc file on his zipped folder. Now scroll down until you get to the section titled, "Overworld Data Explained". Read all of it and you will figure out how to change the palette slot.

                          I am using Jpans engine and i added the usual bytes for surf although it now changes the OW to the bike and then freezes the player but animations still play....
                          I have tried other bytes. and it still does this.
                          Does anyone have any idea why it is doing this?

                            What line do I edit and how do I edit it in a HEX editor to make it so all pokemon with a different ID will obey the trainer.

                            Im using cygnus free version

                              Also, put waitstate on the next line.

                              Code:
                              #org @example
                              warp 0xA 0x21 0xFF 0xC 0x2
                              waitstate
                              end
                              Well I did try that actually and it still just takes me to a black screen but maybe I'll try again.
                              thanks though!

                                Easy, reset the var that controls byte ows to 0 using the setvar command in a script. There is also a byte that needs to be changed to FF in the routine, but I need to dig that up.

                                  Has any workaround been found yet for the 25 slots between Celebi and Treecko? As far as I currently know, they're not allowed to be obtained because the Pokedex crashes the game when they are. They have to essentially be enemy trainer only.

                                    You can also have them be evolutions and give pokemon stuff. They just can't be put in the position where their dex entries would be loaded. Unless you have Jambo51's asm skill, this is the best you can do.

                                      When I start a new game normally in Pokémon Emerald, and exit the truck... my Mom talks to me as soon as I exit the truck, and this begins a script that leads me inside the house.

                                      I'm in the process of moving this event to another town. I've gotten as far as having the player exit the truck at the new location, and making the truck appear or disappear based on flags. However, so far I have NOT been able to find ANY method of triggering a script the moment you exit the truck (such as happens in the normal game). Putting a script on the title you start off on doesn't work, I've tried it... such a script only activates once you step off the tile and then move back onto it. :/

                                      All that's covered in tutorials is how to make scripts that trigger when you step on a tile, read a sign, or talk to someone. I would have examined the script in the default game for hints, but I can't seem to find a script with that dialogue in the truck, OR on any NPC/script tile in Littleroot Town itself. So, I'm completely baffled as to how the game triggers this.

                                      Is there a special method of making scripts trigger the moment you enter an area?

                                        Yes there is. The script you are looking for is called a Level Script. It's located in the Header part of A-Map. You should see the Level Script heading. Just scroll through them until you see the correct script.

                                          I should put the script code(or what do you call that) in the person you want to become a trainer right?
                                          And oh~ if you forget me, i'm the one who ask you about Trainer Limits thingy xD
