If I activate the program, I get an error, saying 'unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application'. This made me asssume my .NET was broken, but most other applications work just fine. Anyone got any tips? Currently running .NET 4.0 on a virtual windows machine (in case that might help).
      Yeah, you should reinstall the .NET framework, and I believe I have heard problems from people trying to run hacking programs on virtual windows machines, I guess the don't play well.

      We need a specific thread just for this question. i have answered it at least 20 times on here, and others have answered it as well.

      Go download the settings.ini file for it (if you don't already have it) and change the autoupdatecheck to equal zero. If the line isn't in there, add a new line for it just above [format] and it should look like this (without the quotes): "autoupdatecheck=0".

        - Do you know maybe of a step-to-step guide on starting your own hack?
        I have an idea forming in my mind, but I don't know how to even begin implementing it and the tutorials I have seen did not help me much.

        Try to first get down some of the basic ideas for the hack first.
        Things like the story, a list of features you want to include, a map of the region's towns/routes/ect (rough map in paint or something) and then begin to think of what you want to include for ingame events at specific towns. Once you've done that, then you're well on your way to start mapping these places and eventually scripting them.

          I am going to tell you that there is no guide to creating a rom hack. Only guides on how to use the tools to do it. Why? Because rom hacking is all about creativity. A guide about how to make one (in order to not damper on creativity) would have to be so general that it was pretty much useless. The only true steps there are, are:

          1) Learn how to use the major tools efficiently (A-map, A-trainer, XSE/PKSVUI, NSE, UnLz-GBA)

          2) Organize you idea into a nice flow chart of events.

          3) Just do it. Start small by making your first town and then proceed from there, one town/route at a time.

          If I give you anything more, you will start leaning on my ideas and it won't be as creative as it could be.

            P.S: I just want to change the names of in-game traded pokémons, so if there is an alternative tool that I can use, please let me know.
            Does anyone have a solution for this problem (or an alternative)?

            Thanks in advance.

              You could hex edit it in yourself, or use FRv1.0. Most of the good stuff (like JPAN's engine and most tutorials) and more tools are supported by FRv1.0. Most people just skip v1.1 in their tut's and tools, so it isn't a very good choice. Sorry bro.

                Hi guys, lately i've been trying to make a serious hack, but i have some problems at mapping.
                I need tutorials that show me how to make different maps, without having to use the game's tiles and stuff, i've only found tutorials that explain me what each button mean.

                If you dont understand me, ask me some questions and ill make the question more understandable.

                  What's the difference between FR 1.0 and 1.1 anyway? I didn't even know there were two versions.

                    I have a post a few pages back entailing all of this, let me dig it up.

                    It was like 10 pages ago, but whatever:p

                    In Advacned map.

                    And i was also asking,lets say i distrubte the rom for free like planned. And other people download just the GBA file im editing straight through instead of a patch, Would i have to keep the Saved RBC files with the scripts or does hitting compile in XSE save them into the rom without needing the external RBC files?

                    And thank you on the last question :3
                    When you hit compile, it turns all of your words into numbers and adds them to the rom. So, you do not need the rbc files, but they are good to keep as many scripts are similar. Therefore, you maybe able to use old ones as reference points or templates. I do this A LOT!

                    A-map doesn't use 0xXXXXXX, it uses the $XXXXXX instead. Then, you must click save:p.

                    When you distribute the patch, also include the game code (AXVE, BPEJ, BPRE) so that they know exactly which game and language to patch. Also include the version number (1.0 or 1.1) for FR.


                    Here is Lu-Ho's tut on how to add (not replace) new tilesets: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=156018

                    Here is a tutorial on adding tilesets in general: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=186982
                    Like FBI said, just type in tile sets and hit search!:D

                    And another good tutorial, (I hope...:)): http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=193377

                    For animating tiles, this should be useful: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=260619

                    Now I am just going to use a spoiler:


                    As you can tell, this Vicodin is making feel really good so I didn't mind finding all of there tutorials. I'm also pretty bored too.:D

                        Have you patched the rom? I included a .aps (A-ptch by HackMew), .ups (similar to .ips), and a .ips. They all work, I personally tested them on a Ruby (AXVE) rom. Are you actually opening up lunar ips and patching a clean rom? Or just putting the patch on your psp?

                                  Yeah, I just remembered that I had to pm him for an updated link, I'm searching through my old pms, which I thankfully saved, for it. Give me a sec.

                                  Yes, I believe there is a thread around here somewhere.... Most likely in R&D.

                                        Tnx Dude karetekid552! Oh! How a about the loot script?

                                        Where you battle a pokemon like e.g. Ho-oh and get an item like potion but he gives it to you after beating him. A sample script?

                                        BTW I tested the truck remover but it only removed the animation and now I can't get out of the truck. I was searching for a tool that will make you start in your room. Advanced IntroEd messes up my tiles.

                                          ^If I am not mistaken, just put the giveitem instruction after the wildbattle one, if you lose the battle the script ends if you win or catch the wild pokémon the script continues to giveitem ... try this. ^^
                                          Did you try SMCA? (Start Map Choose Advance)

                                            You will need to use SMCA in conjunction with Truck Remover, as Truck Remover only removes the ASM routine associate with the truck, but doesn't change your start map.

                                            Also, Kurapika is correct. Directly after the wild battle and its waitstate, you can place the giveitem.

                                                I haven't looked, sorry. And I have no clue on the emulator. Try a different one and make sure you have the bios file if necessary.

                                                  1st) It's ok, you dont have to look for it.
                                                  2nd) I do have the Bios, because the emulator wouldnt run if i dont have it.
