      On this page and some other pages I've seen some token mentions of only being able to have 15 person events at once. . .But I've done a map with over 20 gym trainers before that worked perfectly normal. I'm assuming it's just they just can't all be close enough on the map to have more than 15 on screen at once (Which was the case in this map).

      Can the Pokemon Unown, Castform, and Spinda be overwritten with new ones? I worry about the alternate Unown/Castform forms, and if the changing spots from Spinda would "infect" whatever sprite I overwrite it with. I believe I just have to get rid of Castform's ability and only overwrite Unown A's sprite for those two, correct? For Spinda I have no idea.

          If you would like, I can point you to the NPC buffer in the ram that stores all of the data for every NPC. There are only 16 slots, and one is for the player. This is only for NPCs slightly off-screen and on-screen. I don't know what the exact distance off-screen it is, but yes, you can have a map with more, they just need to be spaced out. To test this, make a map and put 17 all real close to each other. 2 will disappear. I can promise that.

          Yes, change Castforms ability and it should work. Spinda will always infect your pokemon, so you have to be creative. Unowns are just weird, but you can nop the code in the sprites loaders that load them and then just make them a regular pokemon, but why would you want that?:P

          I do, but it requires custom ASM by Darthatron. I'll see if I can get the ASM open sourced. I used it for my hack and LinkandZelda used it for Liquid Crystal. You will have to know ASM first though, otherwise it will just be gibberish.

          Pokefreake: Maybe a hex editor?

          Master Warlord: The forme changes are stored within the Pokemon's PID, so just changing abilities will do NADA. In Pokemon Dark Rising, Spinda was overwritten with Tynamos, and the Tynamos had spots just like old Spinda. Changing an Unown would mean changing all of the formes to look like the normal one. Castform are based off of ability, so yeah, go ahead. But you could make use of it, like have 4 different Pokemon based on the same one? I don't know, get creative with it. All of the sprite changes can be accomplished through Advanced Series.

          +Silverwing+: Eh, when I'm around, I'm as helpful as Karatekid.

            If I reply, check my replies first before posting.:P


            I got permission from Darthatron to open source the code for the animated titlescreen. I will post a link here after I post it.

                    No. There is no way to do it using only scripts.

                    See rather than point blank refusing to learn ASM, which will get you absolutely nowhere, try actually learning how to insert it. Not write it, not understand it, just assemble and insert it.

                    It's easy to assemble and insert ASM, and there's normally good documentation on how to use it along with the ASM.

                    Try reading these threads written by people who can explain it far better than I. It explains the basic concepts behind ASM. And I'll quote a basic step by step guide on how to actually assemble and insert ASM. I can't do anything more for you than that, I'm afraid.

                    This explains what ASM code actually does:
                    http://www.romhackersonline.com/showthread.php?t=14109-The-Concept-of-ASM

                    And this explains how to assemble a piece of ASM code and insert it into your ROM in a usable format:
                    http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=233645

                    As you can see, (if you've read them) all ASM insertion actually amounts to is hex editing your ROM. You can't honestly tell me you've never done that, because that's what EVERYTHING that changes your ROM does (just in a very obfuscated manner).

                    If you continue to refuse to even try, all you'll do is draw ire and frustration. You have several posts in this thread which ask how to do something, and when someone answers that it needs ASM (and usually posts a link to a good tutorial explaining how to use the ASM), you basically have a hissy fit and say "Not good enough".

                    The scripting language is an exceedingly limited language, and many of the things you want to do simply aren't possible without delving into ASM, so I'd advise trying at the very least.

                      On the worldmap? Well if you want them to connect differently there's a map connections button on top.

                        Question:
                        Is there any way to make it possible to have a pokemon ( Eevee ) have more than 5 evolutions?
                        In YAPE 5 seems to be the limit, so does that mean ASM is the only way to make this work?
                        &
                        Even if done will I be able to edit it in YAPE?

                          ASM is the only way, and no, YAPE could not support it even if you did insert the ASM. Best way to handle Eevee is simply to add a special case scenario to the code. You could even collapse a lot of the data by doing so, since no other Pokémon has more than 2 branches in evolution.

                          You would break compatibility with YAPE in doing so though.

                            JUST DRAG THE MIDI INTO MID2AGB.EXE
                            That will work. Read my mega-huge Sappy tutorial to understand

                              That DIDN'T work, or else I wouldn't be here asking. The window just closes a split second after I drag the mid into mid2agb.exe, and there's no .s file created (nor any file, for that matter)
                              I've even tested the example mid that came with it, and nothing.

                              I've encountered that same problem with other midis before. Yeah, it means there's something in the midi that the tool can't convert, so there was no .s file created.

                                  Somewhere in the toolbar of Anvil Studio there is a 'Repair Midi' button (I think it's the 'File' one...). Click that and say yes to everything except the program change question. That should fix your Midi and allow for the creation of the S file.

                                    But ASM scripting is very hard. And in all my attemps i crash game.

                                    Also. What is this F***in adress of ASM controling Wild Battle and Trainer Themes?

                                    It would be more simpler when someone told me where is this adress.

                                      It is NOT scripting. It is programming. There's a massive difference.

                                      Yeah, it's hard compared to XSE scripting, but it is NOT that hard. You're better to keep trying until you get it right rather than just give it up like you have.

                                      Unfortunately, I'm not a Ruby hacker and I don't know. And you will find there are, unfortunately, very few Ruby ASM hackers (probably none).

                                      Most people hack FireRed and Emerald because the engine is vastly superior to Ruby's. I have a tutorial on how to do it for FireRed, and Emerald's fairly simple to extend, since it's already in a table-ised format.

                                      At a guess, I'd say Ruby uses the same table format. Problem is, the table doesn't contain just the music data, it contains pointers to ASM. The ASM it points to loads the music ID.

                                      Very basic ASM hacking skills are required to do it, but it's certainly not hard.
