    Can someone tell me how to switch a theme to play three channels?
    I'm referencing this page: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=7897747#post7897747

    The theme I'm trying to import won't play the 4th channel, even if I change the pointer. I added 03 xx xx, but it's not working. I was able to get the channel to work in 01 and 02...

      I'm not sure if this is the right place to post... but, here it is.
      I need a cheat for making trainers not stop you for Pokemon FireRed on VisualBoy Advance emulator. Sorry if this isn't the right place. :I

        And is there a tutorial on how to make scripts with this?
        Im sure it will work.

        However as someone who has been ROM hacking for the past year, I HIGHLY Recommened making back-up versions of your ROM DAILY!!!
        Things can go terribly wrong sometimes, and your ROM might crash and you won't be able to get it back. So Start making back ups of your ROM.

        Does anyone know where to change the trainer sprites of the male and female hero in the intro of the game? (Like after you say "BOY" and a picture of RED pops up, I want to change that picture.)

          I'm going to change my question from earlier...

          Where is the offset in ROM to the title screen music in Pokemon Gold? I'm having trouble finding it.

          I've had this problem a few times in the past too, but randomly (probably a reason, and thus not really random) I would lose control of the player. Normally happens after a wild pokemon encounter, once the encounter is over the player's sprite stays in place (the game isn't frozen) but when you try to move, the camera moves and every so often you see the player's sprite in a different pallete moving around (I might mention that it's not even centered).
          Any ideas what's going on, the cause and how to fix it?

          An NPC close by must be triggering that glitch.
          Change the NPC's unknown number and test it again.

            Yeah, not the right place. We can however, teach you how to hack the rom itself to accomplish this, but this is not the place for cheats.

            I've solved this about 10 times for people on this very thread. Dude, I know you're my friend, but I'm not gonna repeat myself again.:P If you can't find it, just let me know.

            And is there a tutorial on how to make scripts with this?
            DNS by Prime Dialga. I have used it on multiple roms with no issues.

            - I have not experienced this problem personally, but one of my testers has shown the revolving doors in Fortree Gym flipped 180 degrees vertically. I've left the level scripts the same, and do not experience the problem myself. I don't have any scripts in-game which toy with the associate vars, either.
            1) Command "spriteface" will allow you to do this. Look it up in XSE by hitting F1.

            2) Weird. Ask him what he was doing as he played. Did he start fresh, or from a save?

            Apparently using Facedown is incorrect and bugs things up. You're supposed to use the default no movement for that (or so the PHO IRC folk tell me).

            It will show you how to replace all of their sprites, and it worked perfectly for me.

            Good luck!

                In Advance Map 1.92, there are two Look Down options- one of them works fine, the other one makes the game flip out. I believe it's the first one that is safe, but you can figure it out through experimentation and rename it in the INI files once you've got it.

                Advance Map 1.95 (which you shouldn't be using in general) renames the broken one to something less deceptive- while you shouldn't save in 1.95, you can look over your maps with it to figure out which NPCs are using the wrong Face Down.

                I don't advise using No Movement. It *might* be safe, but I've run into problems with it before, and the safe Face Down is perfectly fine.

                  That is one answer, but it doesn't always work for everyone (and didn't work for me.). I have had sprites which face up that have this happen without any "facedown"s on the map.

                  My way is to simply move the sprite to the edge of the screen and permanently hide it by setting its person ID to the flag set that controls the pokemon option on the start menu. Then recreate the sprite. I have found that if you delete the old one, the issue simply shifts to a new sprite, no matter the movement permissions.

                    Also I tried watching that video and I got an error message saying 'Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (rtsp) isn't associated with any program.'

                    Do you know what this means?

                    If not, do you have another way of showing me that video? :p

                      Hi, I posted my topic in the Slideshow Showcase section, and I want to know why this topic isn't being accepted here:
                      http://hax.iimarck.us/post/31155/#p31155

                      I am not happy with how this section is moderated, I PM'd both moderators asking where to post this... neither of them have replied for some time (more than 3 days, I forget).

                      Can you tell me what is wrong with my topic?!?

                        I am not happy with how this section is moderated, I PM'd both moderators asking where to post this... neither of them have replied for some time (more than 3 days, I forget).

                        Well from what I saw on your thread (a brief look through) I noticed your screens were quite bare and didn't show much significant modification from the original Gold Version (I believe you need 4 non-map screenshots that don't heavily resemble the original ROM's maps) and lacking a bit of a story behind it all.

                          Well, the lack of story was why I put it in Slideshow Showcase... but yes, probably missing some better screens.

                          I am also posting here for feedback, and my lack of storyline is because this was going to be a dungeon-rush project, but I might change that.

                          Easy question, how do I change which Pokemon appears in the prof. oak intro using a hex editor? Not using IntroEd or any tools like that.

                            At 0x130FA0 there are 2 pointers, first one goes to an offset where another
                            pointer is -> sprite; the other goes to an offset where another pointer is -> palette.

                                Hey!
                                It might be a bit complicated but in general its just UNLZ GBA editing and such.
                                Battlebacks are in every ROM at the beginning of UNLZ GBA.
                                Remind the following things:

                                -tilemap of the image must be 32x64 (whereas the last 32 pixels in height are empty)
                                -palette of battlback is compressed -> between every fourth palette entry is a 00-byte.

                                I might write a tutorial about it, but noone will answer it so its waste of time.

                                  DrFuji and I worked on a tutorial together for FR that entails everything on how to hack battle bgs. It should work exactly the same on Emerald, just with different pointers. As ep!c said, the images should be near the beginning of the UnLz list. Just find one, search for it's pointer in a hex editor, and you will find the battle bg table. Everything else in the tutorial is the same.

                                      Hi,

                                      I used "Pokemon Oak Intro Editor" tool (on Pokemon Gold GBC) to change Prof Oak's intro Pokemon, and it didn't do anything... what are the damages it could have done? (I've seen no problems/changes/weirdness since I used it)
