    I am a mapper for an upcoming hack and it seems that we have come to a problem. The base ROM is Firered and we edited the main town and everything, and confirmed that we were going to use this town. And we came to an issue which is hindering progress. The issue is when you go into the game, some of our tiles having little shreds of movement tiles in them. (Btw I use Advance Map 1.92)

    Thank you in advance.

      I think I know what you mean, but i'm not completely sure. Could you please post a video? Also, did you change tiles or animations?

      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
      What is the entire script? Both of them, for both events? and no, I didn't forget you

        Yes, we did change tiles but our Lead Mapper went away for a moment without letting us know how to fix it. I do think it is the animations because the flowers and fences have little arrow like formations on them. I also cannot post links till I have 15 or more posts so I also sent the video to you via PM. I hope you don't mind.

          You epically failed at youtube tags Don't worry, I did the same thing my first time using them.

          Video:
          Spoiler:



          Explanation of youtube tags:
          Spoiler:
          When using youtube tags, just take the video i.d. and put it in the tags. Compare this to your url:

          HTML Code:
          url: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe_OyxkM1ao&feature=youtu.be
          
          tags: [YOUTUBE]xe_OyxkM1ao[/YOUTUBE]



          Now, the issue is simple: Animations are attached to specific tiles in the tile set. I'm going to guess you didn't expect that? You probably thought they were attached to the blocks. When you redrew your tiles, you probably just randomly inserted them. Tiles with animations attached need to be replaced by new versions. Meaning, when you insert new water, you need put the new water tiles over the old water tiles. The only animations attached to the actual block data are doors.

            So, I would fix this problem by just taking the flower and putting it over the old one and recoloring? Or am I wrong? (Sorry I am so new to this animated tiles thing.)

              You can replace the flower/grass animation with NSE by using bookmarks. Simply view the bookmarks, choose the flower one and export it. After you edited it import the file again and save. The flower animation palette is the same as the green palette of the tileset 1 in AM.
              So just replacing the flower tile isn't enough.

                I'm trying to edit the title screen for my hack (it's much easier than I expected so far) but when I tried to change the pokemon it said the compressed file was too big. I followed A tutorial that I found exactly and I still got the error. My sprite is 80 by 80 if this helps any.

                Never mind I figured it out. New question. Does anyone know how to insert a new color map using gimp? I'm still working on the title and needed to change the colors so I can edit it easier.

                  How could I delete the badge requirements of HMs like Surf or Fly?

                    You have to edit all of the scripts, which can be tough to find.

                    Inserting new color maps in GIMP is not fun, not fun at all. If you just want to edit the colors in the color map, that is much easier. Just go into the windows menu and open the color map window. There you can edit colors.

                      What I'm planning on doing is simply trigger the flag for the badge while the script giving the HM is happening. I don't think it actually triggers anything, it just makes it such that it looks like you have the badge and that you can use the HMs. If you don't want the person to access the elite 4 yet, simply change the flag needed for someone to access the e4 building.

                      Speaking of thinking outside the box, I have a question:
                      I know the games have certain doors which are locked until a certain event occurs. How would one go about doing that? My first thought was have an invisible person on the spot of the door until a flag is triggered, removing the person, but I can't find the sprite number for an invisible person. having a script which triggers when you step on the square just before the door stopping you and telling you to turn back seems rather unprofessional. Is there any other way? Thanks!

                        the invisible person works fine... the sprite can be anything, just make it hidden under movement

                        you could put a script in front of the door, just like for cinnabar's gym... when someone walks up to the door it gives a lil text and makes the person walk the other direction...

                        you ask alot of questions that can be answered by simply looking at the scripts already in the game...
                        you wanna know about a locked door, go to the locked door already in the game and see how they did it...
                        gamefreak already solved most of the problems you will run into...

                          For the HMs, you need to backtrack from the location of the messages in the script (use A-Text to find them) and the find the script. I have posted a method for how to do this several times, so search both this thread and simple questions as I don't want to type this again. After you find the script, you can repoint it and make a new one.

                          Actually, game freak did it this way several times. Just make a script tile, and after the lockall command, use the command checkplayerfacing (that name might be wrong... Check in the command database for XSE [F1]) and only have the script continue if the player is facing the door. If they are, then run your flag checks and such.

                          Edit: LSA is very right, that is how good hackers do things. They don't waste time trying to do things that other people have done.

                            I have a question, how do you repoint the moves table in a-trainer? I have new move table repointed, but it seems that a-trainer uses the old movetable, so that i can't make trainer to use new moves....

                            any idea?

                            i tried searching this thread and find no luck

                              That'd be very tricky to do unless you've the source code of the program, and thus, could open the source and modify it. If you've only got the program itself, the situation might be hopeless.

                              You could try opening it with a hex editor, and search if the original offset is mentioned anywhere in an understandable format. If not, there's not much you can do about it.

                                Hey. I'm new to this site as well as ROM editing, and I was wondering how to make the "hero's" sprite a different sprite, like Gary, throughout the entire game. Thanks in advance

                                Use NSE to edit in-game OWs, trainers, items, whatever.

                                  Go into the Tools section and find NSE (nameless sprite editor)
                                  The one you want is NSE classic.

                                    Well Gary does not have fishing, bike, or running frames, so you need to get those. PM me if you want a full explanation.

                                      So im fairly sure this is a simple problem but I can't figure it out. I have a script dependent on a person, and everything looks fine in Amap:
                                      Spoiler:


                                      but when I go into the game, he is in the wrong place before the script is even triggered:

                                      Spoiler:

                                      any tips?

                                      It's probably caused by a level script on the map.
                                      On Advance Map, simply go to the ‘Header’ tab of the map, then check out the ‘Map Script/s’ and see if one of those scripts are the cause of moving your NPC to another spot.
                                      Or, if you're being lazy, then just simply change the NPC's ‘Person Event Number’.

                                      :3

                                        Alright, so I've been going around my Fire Red rom replacing various Pokemon with 4th/5th gen pokemon. Totaled up to around 100. Got in all their sprites and icons fine. I've been making use of the 25 Unown slots between Celebi and Treecko as various extra mons.

                                        Most of the Unown slots are evolutions of existing gen 1 and 2 mons in the rom. I can add in some of the evolutions fine, but adding in others somehow causes YAPE to crash. I have multiple Unown slots functioning 100% fine, but others are weird.



                                        I have not tampered with the rom whatsoever outside of editing Pokemon and attacks, so I very much doubt I've overwritten something.

                                        These "bugged" Unown slots are functional to some awkward degrees. . .I can go in and edit them if I go to them directly without going to an evolution. The current evolution table where I previously was stays, though, and I can't go to any other Pokemon after going to this Pokemon, having to close and reopen it. I also cannot make these bugged slots evolve themselves, even into "normal" slots.

                                        Weirder still, I overwrote Celebi, a normal Pokemon, with a new Pokemon. Sure, it's right next to the Unown slots, but it should be normal, right? Nope, Celebi's slot is one of the "broken" ones. The regular Pokemon in the rom are fine, but yes.

                                        One of the Unown slots even somehow has had random evolutions assigned to it, evolving into Entei and Beedrill somehow. They can be removed and this particular slot functions fine but it's weird enough that it's making me panic something was overwritten.

                                        My best guess is something along the lines of there only being so many evolutions being allowed in the game and I broke the table by adding too many and/or the Unown slots just being really trippy. Looking for an explanation as to why this happened more than anything, pretty much assumed the rom is screwed.

                                            No, can you post both scripts. The whole things. Open up both of them in XSE and copy and paste them here. The offset tells me absolutely nothing.
