Hi, I recently ended up looking at the town map of Pokémon Emerald and I saw that there's an image of the protagonist where he/she is actually located.
I was wondering if someone had found where these images are located cause I've been spending a lot of time on unLZgba but without achieving any sort of success.
Thanks for the help
Do you know how to use the logging tool in VBA-M. If not its exactly how you can figure out what images are being loaded along with their tilemaps. Just turn on logging before the graphic is loaded and have the game run so that the image is on screen then go back to the logging screen and it should tell you every time an image is uncompressed and loaded and also its offset. Very handy
But that only works for certain circumstances. Certain images that are not static and have movement will sometimes not be logged using that tool. In which case i haven't figured out how to find the routines for moving images and i believe involves a lot of hex deciphering and editing or knowledge on asm.
Thanks but I figured out manually the offset searching byte by byte using tile molester for an indication of the location of the image and then using hex editor in order to find a pointer similar to the one I found using tyle molester.
If anyone is interested they are:

You can edit them using NSE and navigate to that offset
