Hi, I seem to be experiencing a small graphical glitch. Nothing major, it's just that my sprite appears pink until I use an attack. Does anyone have any idea why this might be? :3 The sprites that it's happening with so far are custom sprites. I took some screenshots too if that helps (spoilered due to large size.)

Edit: Other info- the sprite starts pink at the start of EVERY battle, and opening menus (bag, Pokemon etc.) also removes it temporarily.
Edit 2: Just did some more testing- seems to be that only the backsprite has this glitch- the front sprites seem to be working fine.
Edit 3: Hmmm, this seems to affect all backsprites. o.o

Spoiler:

    How do I find certain palettes/offsets in advanced palette editor like for example the palette/offset of the world map?

      Open up the image in VBA. Go "Tools" -> "Palette Viewer" and find the palette you are looking for. Save the palette map as a Paint Shop palette. Now, switch APE to searching mode with the button and click the button that becomes accessible after doing so. (It is in the Actual Palette section, the palette with the blue arrow pointing left on it.) Select the saved palette. Now, using the arrows, navigate through the indexes until you find the palette you think is the one for the image. Then click search. Remember to switch between Lz and Uncompressed if can't find it. If you can't find it at all, then this will be a little bit more difficult.

          Somewhere in their script, there will be a giveitem item command. Just change the item number to a different one.

                  There are some in the toolbox such as SDSME, and a few other ones.

                    I have a problem with my VBA, I changed the setting to make the screen bigger but I accidentally made them to big and the VBA keeps crashing before I can change them back.

                    I have already tried deleting all the files of VBA and downloading it again but its not working :"(

                    Well, deleting all the files will obviously ruin the program. It has nothing to run on!!!
                    Anyway, here's VBA-M. Don't screw around with the files again: https://www.dropbox.com/s/md8s7flrfwaecz9/Vba-m.7z

                      Does anyone have a tutorial for making the title screen animated? I already know how to make the background, but I don't know how to make the animation.

                            On this page and some other pages I've seen some token mentions of only being able to have 15 person events at once. . .But I've done a map with over 20 gym trainers before that worked perfectly normal. I'm assuming it's just they just can't all be close enough on the map to have more than 15 on screen at once (Which was the case in this map).

                            Can the Pokemon Unown, Castform, and Spinda be overwritten with new ones? I worry about the alternate Unown/Castform forms, and if the changing spots from Spinda would "infect" whatever sprite I overwrite it with. I believe I just have to get rid of Castform's ability and only overwrite Unown A's sprite for those two, correct? For Spinda I have no idea.

                                If you would like, I can point you to the NPC buffer in the ram that stores all of the data for every NPC. There are only 16 slots, and one is for the player. This is only for NPCs slightly off-screen and on-screen. I don't know what the exact distance off-screen it is, but yes, you can have a map with more, they just need to be spaced out. To test this, make a map and put 17 all real close to each other. 2 will disappear. I can promise that.

                                Yes, change Castforms ability and it should work. Spinda will always infect your pokemon, so you have to be creative. Unowns are just weird, but you can nop the code in the sprites loaders that load them and then just make them a regular pokemon, but why would you want that?:P

                                I do, but it requires custom ASM by Darthatron. I'll see if I can get the ASM open sourced. I used it for my hack and LinkandZelda used it for Liquid Crystal. You will have to know ASM first though, otherwise it will just be gibberish.

                                Master Warlord: The forme changes are stored within the Pokemon's PID, so just changing abilities will do NADA. In Pokemon Dark Rising, Spinda was overwritten with Tynamos, and the Tynamos had spots just like old Spinda. Changing an Unown would mean changing all of the formes to look like the normal one. Castform are based off of ability, so yeah, go ahead. But you could make use of it, like have 4 different Pokemon based on the same one? I don't know, get creative with it. All of the sprite changes can be accomplished through Advanced Series.

                                  I got permission from Darthatron to open source the code for the animated titlescreen. I will post a link here after I post it.

                                      Google is your friend, so always go there before you ask for help.
