Is there a way i can change that so that i can make them all individual? I'm still new to rom hacking so sorry if this is an easy fix and i just don't know how :p also is there a way i can look through all the tilesets or can i only look at them individuality through the header?
    The easiest way, would be to open up one of the maps and click insert map at the top. Then, creat a new map bank and put it in there. I've had problems with expanding the origional map banks before, so it's safest just to put it in a new one.

    Basically, your just copying the map to a new slot that isn't linked to the others. Remeber to change all of the warps and scripts over.

          Does anyone know how to fix the Advance Map problem with the wild pokemon data where ti freaks out and anytime you change to a different map it will say its not a pointer adn then not save your wild pokemon data?
          I know i shouldnt have done this, but a while back i set the encounter rate to 0 at mt moon on FR, then it started doing that, so i just remade the same map somewhere else and havent touched the original mt moon. now im trying to edit it somewhere else, and its having the same pointer problem, even though i didnt mess with the encounter rate. Does anyone know how to fix this?

            You know how when you add a new section to the wild data how it automatically makes a new pointer? Take a look at those and make sure they are pointers and not something glitched. This is my guess from your descriptions. The only error I get is the I/O 32 error, but that hasn't caused much of a problem after a restart.

              Well, the new mt moon has been fine, but the error from the original one i think may be affecting the rest of the maps. Cause now the same error is starting to happen in other cities. for me it says its error 5

                  I'm sorry, I honestly don't know much about amap errors. I was just giving a guess based on the message. My best bet is that somewhere linked into wold battle settings, a pointer is missing or broken. I personally would contack LU-HO, and ask him. Maybe even ask him if he has a list of error messages and their fixes. That would be nice as noone seems to have one.

                  LU-HO's address is [email protected] Good luck.

                      I'm having a bit of trouble with the APE. I'm trying to load a 16-bit .pal exported from IrfanView, but I'm continuously getting an "Invalid palette loaded!" error. Any attempts to load a palette after this error cause the program to crash.

                      I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, can anyone help me out?

                      EDIT: Incidentally, what's the palette offset for the "Press Start" image on FR's titlescreen?

                        Yeah, I sent him an email, im hoping hell reply soon. Thanks though.
                        Would anyone also happen to know how to transfer old Amap creations from one ROM save to another? Cause I have some older maps that I want to put into my hack without having to go through the trouble of completely recreating them.

                          I tested it through some warp changes just after the beginning of the game and he already has it. At least the first three islands, but I'm guessing it'll work the same for the rest.

                          Make sure the two places have the exact same tiles. Then, File->Map->Save map as. Then open up the new game and select Open map... instead. Make sure to insert the map after you open it.

                            Would anything bad happen if there were custom tiles in one map, but not the original? would it mess up my game or just have weird mixed tiles where the custom ones would be?
                            also, what would happen if i had events on the old maps? i noticed the script tiles and npcs are also inserted along with their scripts. does that mean the scripts have been compiled into the memory for the game?

                              It saves the tiles by number. If you changed tile 0x24B, it is going to load the new tile from the set already in the game. So, yeah, weird mixed tiles.

                                Disregard this, I just opened APE's colour picker and manually edited the palette. Seemed to work apart from a slight graphical error, nothing big though!

                                Now, who knows the offsets for both the "Fire Red Version" logo and the Charizard sprite?

                                  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, can anyone help me out?

                                  EDIT: Incidentally, what's the palette offset for the "Press Start" image on FR's titlescreen?
                                  Disregard this, I just opened APE's colour picker and manually edited the palette. Seemed to work apart from a slight graphical error, nothing big though!

                                  Now, who knows the offsets for both the "Fire Red Version" logo and the Charizard sprite?
                                  Several tutorials, including this one which only does the charizard. I'll find the text in a sec:
                                  http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=196269

                                  It also has a solution to your APE problem.


                                  Found the title pallete. You know you can find palletes using the pallete view in VBA, right? I can teach you if you wish. The offset is EAB844 and is is not compressed.

                                    In my process of adding new moves to my Ruby hack, I still have one problem:

                                    How would I go about giving these moves their own descriptions? :/

                                        It works for allowing you to see the map, but you have to do some specific event for the little icon that lets you toggle between the maps to show up.

                                        Also I'm not totally sure how to edit which map a location shows up in (meaning which map it defaults to showing when you use the town map item). Is there a way to edit this or is it hard-coded which maps go where into the ROM and we have to edit around that?

                                            Does anyone know of a simple way to change the intro with Professor Oak such that instead of being asked for the Rival's name and being asked if I'm sure and then showing the textbox after that where it says, "Now I remember, etc." I would just be able to show the picture of the rival, introduce him with a prescribed name and then skip those parts with naming him and the following text until it goes into the "Journey about to unfold" bit? If I need to clarify let me know, thanks.

                                              I'm trying to do something that I assume will be very complex; pokemon have new names/ appearances/ moves ect, moves will be sometimes duplicated with their stats, effects and appearances changed, a totally new map (preferably with custom drawn squares), my own placed trainers with their own pokemon, a few different pokemon leagues, ect.

                                              I understand this will likely be very very difficult and I'm very new to this stuff, so where would you recommend I go to learn the basics, and beyond? I want to know where to go to become a Pokemon master ;D

                                                EDIT: Ok, i have a problem: i've opened vba for exporting palette. So i go in my trainer card with at least one medal, go to Tools->Palette Viewer->Save Obj and than press on Save.

                                                After, in TM, i go to Palette->Import->Another file and i nav to the folder where there is a .pal file. The navigator of TM don't show me this file. If i write in the filename box manually obj.pal, TM doesn't say me "The file is not found", but the palette it load is completely gray.

                                                Any help?

                                                thanks a lot

                                                  How would I go about giving these moves their own descriptions? :/
                                                  Aren't descriptions point able in PGE? I believe so, so just write up the description in XSE using only \n and compile it (look at other move descriptions to see the character limit) then type the offset in in PGE as the description pointer.

                                                  Will look like this:

                                                  #Dynamic 0x800000

                                                  #org @start
                                                  = Hey, this is my new\nattck description!

                                                  I'm assuming that if you're using PGE, you've edited the .ini for your new banks you needed to make to expand.

                                                  Also I'm not totally sure how to edit which map a location shows up in (meaning which map it defaults to showing when you use the town map item). Is there a way to edit this or is it hard-coded which maps go where into the ROM and we have to edit around that?
                                                  Don't know about the second one, but the first is just flags. Sorry that I was confused with what you wanted, I haven't used the Town Map in a while. Anyway, the flag for the 2nd set of island is 0x846. I'll find the other one and post it later today.

                                                  I understand this will likely be very very difficult and I'm very new to this stuff, so where would you recommend I go to learn the basics, and beyond? I want to know where to go to become a Pokemon master ;D
                                                  Youtube and the tutorials section my friend, that and just plain experimenting is how I learned. Also, when you get pretty good, the research and development section can have a lot to offer too. Move animations will be tough, but there is quite a bit documented on a thread by Chaos Rush, just so you know. Good Luck!

                                                    Yeah, this is what I did a while back, and ended up going past the character limit for each line, and they all ended up looking funny. xD

                                                    I'll take a look at line limits and try again. And yes, the .ini has been edited to fit my attacks and stuff. Thanks man!
