    I don't exactly know what are you asking but if you are asking why the OW changes when you import the original Raichu it's because you're importing Raichu without the new pallete.
    You don't have many palletes, though so I would be careful with importing palletes

        OK, I want to import overworld sprites for some 5th Gen Pokemon into a FireRed rom. How do I do it? I have Overworld Editor but I run into all sorts of problems.
        I also need to know how to replace a trainer sprite?

          I'm having problems with Advanced Text. I can't delete text from the game. So far all attempts at it have just led to the text being removed from Advanced Text but still being ingame. So, how do I properly delete text? Do I just remove all the text from one of those files things(like "Rival 1") instead of deleting the file? Or would that cause a blank textbox to appear ingame?

            So, I'm using the JPAN Hacked Engine for Fire Red. Mainly, because I need to use his Runtime Trainer Customization function. I kinda figured out how it works through the .doc, but I have a problem with the way it works. I used the Overworld Editor - Rebirth Edition to edit the basic hero sprites (hero standing and hero walking). I figured that by the time I use my Runtime Trainer Customization script, I still don't have my Running Shoes, Bike, VS Seeker or Fishing Rod, so why change those sprites. I wanted to use the first command (Setvar 0x4054) to change my walking/standing Hero to the original look. I would change the look of a random NPC to that of the original Hero, so that when I use the 'Setvar 0x4054' command, my hero would have the original look again. To pre-test it, I just used the 'Setvar 0x4054'-command on a random NPC. I gave myself the Running Shoes, to see how it would look. When I went outside and ran, I didn't get the old Hero look though, it was the random NPC 'gliding'. No running animation, just the basic standing sprite moving through the screen.

            How can I get it to work that I start the game with my 'new' Hero look, then have the command change my appearance, so that the rest of the game I look like the old/normal Hero?

              Two ways you could do this. (Second is better)

              One would be to make the "original" hero (OW #0) you're edited hero so you start out with it automatically, and then change it to the normal one when you want.

              Second, if you want to keep hero #0 the original OW (for reasons such as when you're naming your character, this is the one that shows up, etc...actualy this option is better), make the first map you go to a black screen that covers the player (Edit one of the tiles in any palette to include a black tile that isn't a background). Then make a level script in that black map that will setvar 0x4054 0x0 and then warp you to your original starting map, and then continue from there.

              Since JPAN's hack doesn't work with Start Map Chooser Advance, I would just Map 4.1 (starting map) the black map, and then just edit the map that was there to another one (CTRL + right click for grosser block so you can completely copy the old map).

                I tried the first way, but that caused the problem of my Hero 'gliding' after using setvar. The running sprites didn't copy, since (when you use Overworld Editor you'll see it very well) most OW-sprites don't have the running animation programmed. The second way could work, I kinda thought of that (the use the script before anything else-method), but didn't really knew how. Using black tiles seems like a good idea.

                And SMCA doesn't work with JPAN's hack, but I already knew which map was going to be the starter map, so I first used SMCA, thén JPAN's hack. Seems to work.

                I'll try your method, I'll let you know if it worked.

                    Use NSE (the older version).
                    Import the palette and the not the image.
                    Go to Edit>Palette and look at the first color (top left).
                    Change that to the background color and change the background color wherever that is with the color you just replaced (example, if 0000 was in the top left, and the intended background is C439, swap the two wherever they may be. So the first color would be C439 and the old C439 becomes 0000).
                    Export the blank image with that palette.
                    Open that up in paint.
                    Post your Raichu in it.
                    Then re import.

                    BY THE WAY if you are using Windows 7, the new paint does NOT support indexed images. If you want to know how to put the old version of paint on your computer, ask me (since it's impossible to do any of this with Windows 7 paint).

                      If I patch the hacked engine to my almost fully edited rom, will anything terrible happen?

                        Best way to find out is to make a copy of your rom and patch the copy.

                          Just use the tool included and pick the space it wants you to use. That's what it was made for.

                            No, nothing horrible will happen the only thing that will happen is all the old scripts from FireRed will be gone but, as for everything else nothing bad will happen... :) But, you may be using the old scripts so it's best to keep a backup of your Rom. Just In Case you don't like the result... :)

                              Is there a good Hex editing for Pokemon Fire Red tutorial out there? Want to get it all figured out.

                              I remember reading a post here which explained perfectly how to use pointers in Hex Editor (changing 900000 to 00 00 90 08 or something like that for example).

                                  Change that to the background color and change the background color wherever that is with the color you just replaced (example, if 0000 was in the top left, and the intended background is C439, swap the two wherever they may be. So the first color would be C439 and the old C439 becomes 0000).
                                  Export the blank image with that palette.
                                  Open that up in paint.
                                  Post your Raichu in it.
                                  Then re import.

                                  BY THE WAY if you are using Windows 7, the new paint does NOT support indexed images. If you want to know how to put the old version of paint on your computer, ask me (since it's impossible to do any of this with Windows 7 paint).
                                  Thanks you ! Finally I fixed this problem, thanks.

                                    I remember reading a post here which explained perfectly how to use pointers in Hex Editor (changing 900000 to 00 00 90 08 or something like that for example).
                                    Here is a simple explanation of how GBA pointers work:
                                    http://datacrystal.romhacking.net/wiki/Pointer#Game_Boy_Advance_Pointers

                                    What you also want to know that the pointers in every GBA pokemon game are little-endian. Not sure whether I should link you directly into that tutorial but whatever. If moderators happen to remove the link, search "datacrystal pointer" through google.

                                      What's the palette offset for this box in the battle screen [in Emerald]?

                                      Also, is there a different way to change the regional Dex in Emerald and Fire Red than changing the National Dex? It makes the descriptions switch up.

                                        I have been using unLZ to add Victini's sprite (from the 64x64 sprite resource here) to the game. While the normal sprite looks fine, the back sprite's palette looks off. Help?

                                          @HackandBack: The backsprite that you import has to be the shiny one. Don't ask me why.

                                            Hello, I have a question about how to edit Egg Moves.

                                            I have Gengar in the Fairy Egg Group now, and I want Clefairy to learn Night Shade as an Egg move.

                                            Thank you for your time.

                                              I am pretty sure my problem is tied into the warp animation. Does anyone know if there is an offset for the animation or something? I am kinda new to this.

                                              You can't do that through A-Text alone - You will have to use a script editor to open the script and remove that particular msgbox command entirely.

                                              No answer for your second question, but you can find the palette at 0xC004E5.

                                              Hopefully this tool will help you out (If you're using a third gen ROM).

I am having a few problems but I am pretty sure they are linked to the same cause, I just don't know how to go about fixing it. 1) When you enter cycling road entrance arrows appear between my character. 2) When exiting buildings a portion of my character's head appears at the bottom of the door instead of the arrow. 3) When surfing/flying my character's sprite splits when entering/exiting the surf/fly animation. Any Ideas?

                                              Have you checked how those frames look in a OW editor like NSE or Overworld Editor Rebirth?

                                              If you have and they seem fine then somewhere in your editing you've modified the code which tells the game how to load in sprites. Your player sprite's location within the RAM when loaded has been changed somehow, which is resulting in it overwriting other sprites that pop up (which is clearly shown in your second example). You can try to change that part of the code in your ROM to the way it was originally (but I have no idea how to do that), so a more realistic solution is to go back to an earlier backup file which doesn't have those problems if you have one and restart your progress from there.

                                                Hey all, I'm having 2 problems (Gen 3 Hacking).
                                                How do I stop a title from showing when I enter a cave?
                                                Why is it that I can run in one cave but not another when their map options are identical?
