    Code:
    #org 0x168CC8 'original level script address for the room
    call 0x8800A82
    end
    
    #org 0x800A82
    spriteface 0xFF 0x2
    setvar 0x4056 0x1 'this line and the above are the contents of the original levelscript
    lock
    msgbox 0x8800B20 MSG_NORMAL
    pause 0x3F
    msgbox 0x8800B20 MSG_NORMAL
    msgbox 0x8800B8E MSG_KEEPOPEN
    setvar 0x8004 0x1
    setvar 0x8005 0x1
    setvar 0x8006 0xC
    setvar 0x8007 0x2
    special 0x136
    msgbox 0x8800BAC MSG_KEEPOPEN
    pause 0x1C
    closeonkeypress
    release
    end
    No matter what I do, the game freezes right after the oak intro, before you appear into your room.
    The script itself isn't a problem (I've assigned it to a NPC, and it works as it should). However it as a level script breaks. I've even tried to put it in another map (4,2, which has no level scripts) and it didn't work as well.
    What might be wrong?
    Time to take a shot in the dark...

    If memory serves, the original script (the spriteface one) is a very special type of level script, type [04]. This type of level script is specifically designed to run before the player has finished warping, allowing you to face up when you first start the game, instead of down like a traditional warp.

    Additionally, this type of level script is EXTREMELY picky about the commands it runs...it should only really be used for things like spriteface, and I've found the specials that put the player on the surf and bike work with it as well. Messages, however, don't. For that, you need to use type [02] level scripts.

        The water is always in the main tileset, Tileset 0. So, just go to Block Editor, find the pallette that the water uses (depends on the ROM, it is mainly just blues) and then "Save Tileset 1" (which saves the main tileset), then find the water.

        Yet, to truly change the water, you also need to change the animation of the water with AnimEditor which I advise you find.

            Hello everyone, I just repost my question. Hope now have someone can answer me.

            1.This question is about .s file. .s file original manuscript is Unknown Application, I double click the .s file. After that, It appeared 2 choices " Use the Web service to find the correct program " and "
            Select a program from a list of installed programs ". I choosed "
            Select a program from a list of installed programs " and choose Notepad and checked "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
            Then, I use Sappy 2006 mod 15 to assembly .s file and click " Cook it "( In another Version that's "Assembly that ugly thing", it appeared a error, "XXXX:1: Can't find file "MPlayDef.s" for inclusion Assembly halted". I placed MPlayDef.s file with the .s file I wanted to insert my rom, but also have this problem, so I think is the " "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" problem, it's make the .s file doesn't show .s. I use Windows 7, how can I change the .s file return to Unknown Application? Or a else way to fix this problem.

            Hope have someone can know what I want to express.

            Now I have a Map Script problem.

            2. I create a map script to show the ship started to gone. For example:

            When I get in the ship, the map script is activate, for my map script:( I used the setvar 0x5000 0x1 for this map script before.

            #dynamic 0x800000
            #org @talk
            setvar 0x5000 0x0002
            warpmuted 0x1 0x7 0xFF 0x20 0x0F
            release
            end

            I need to warpmuted to a dock and load the map script to show the ship is gone. For my map script:

            #dynamic 0x800000
            #org @script
            applymovement 0xFF @hide
            waitmovement 0x0
            applymovement 0x1 @gone
            waitmovement 0x0
            setvar 0x5000 0x3
            warpmuted 0x1 0x4 0xFF 0x20 0x07
            release
            end
            #org @hide
            #raw 0x60
            #raw 0xFE
            #org @ride
            #raw 0xA
            #raw 0xA
            #raw 0xA
            #raw 0xA
            #raw 0xA
            #raw 0xA
            #raw 0xA
            #raw 0xA
            #raw 0xFE

            The person event no.1 is for the ship. Then I warpmuted back inside the it appeared the text box and unknown word. I pressed A button it dissapeared and appeared and repeat and repeat. For example:



            How to fix this problem?

            I already setvar, the map script flag inside the ship is 5000 and value is 0001 and at the dock value is 0002.

            3)Have everyone know how to close the JPAN Fire red hacked engine show uncompressed image? I only know how to display it but don't know how to hide it. A extra question, can an uncompressed image can more than 16 colour?

            Thanks.

            PS: Sorry for my bad english.:(

              For number 1, you need to deassociate the .s file from any program, it needs to be a program that has no default Program to open it otherwise Sappy can't open the MPlayDef.s file. To do that, you need a certain program, I dunno if I can link to it, but search for Creative Element Power Tools. It's a series of programs, and one of them can change file associations so you can remove the association you made for .s files and NotePad.

                    Hey, I was wondering, is there anyway to gender lock the character at the beginning of Fire Red? You know, remove Oak's "Are you a boy? Or a girl?" question so that you're automatically a gender without a choice? I don't care if it requires ASM, I already have to hex edit to change the graphics anyway, I just want somebody to point me in the right direction.

                        So far, no known way that is as simple as it seems. One way is to not use the Day Care and utilise that in a script instead to act as a remove Pokemon area, but I don't know if that uses ASM. Otherwise, you will need ASM and extensive knowledge of it to do that.

                          Alright I'm not sure whether this is the right place to put this question or not but here goes.
                          I am trying to help some people create a digimon hack. But as you may or may not know some of the digimon are pretty huge, and so I find it difficult to fit it into 64x64 space. So does anyone know of any tutorials which will help me?

                          Currently there are two ways to remove a person's Pokemon forever; HackMew's ASM document and metapod23's script. HackMew's ASM is the better choice, but if you don't know how to insert ASM then go for metapod's (but I still highly recommend that you learn how to insert ASM)

                          Nope, nobody has been able to do that yet so there won't be any tutorials. In order to have larger sprites, the entire code which deals with storing and displaying sprites would have to be rewritten. Not to mention there would be other problematic areas such looking at your Pokemon in the summary screen or evolutions. Unfortunately you'll have to stick with 64x64 sprites for the foreseeable future.

                          With the way that the GBA hardware works, 64x64 is the limit. Unless of course you completely re-write the entire battle engine. Totally not worth it.

                              Is there a ROM hack that essentially the original Pokemon Red/Blue in GBA form?

                                  I'm guessing not then. Nothing is wrong with them, I just love the originals, but annoyed by the limitations.

To do that, you need a certain program, I dunno if I can link to it, but search for Creative Element Power Tools. It's a series of programs, and one of them can change file associations so you can remove the association you made for .s files and NotePad.
                                    Thanks dude, I'm downloaded Creative Element Power Tools and used it now I can assembly song. But now I has a new problem here, I assembly music to my Fire Red Rom and I test to play the music, the music sound is diffrent with my midi files sound, it's be "urgly" sound. How to make it sound same as my midi sound?

                                    Thanks!

                                      You need to find a tutorial about how to add voicegroups to FireRed then. The game uses a specific voicegroup for it's songs, not those that your MIDI uses. I don't know how to add voicegroups into Firered, but search for a tutorial. I don't think you can get your songs to sound 100% right, sadly, but the best you can do in the worst case scenario is try to use the same instruments as Firered in your songs.

                                        How do I get a script to run as soon as the game starts. I want to run a script the second Oak's Speech ends and I'm transported to the Overworld.

                                          That is called a level script. Here is a tutorial on how to do them:

                                            Hey, I wanted to know if someone has a list of the trainer battle music that's on A-Trainer, or if someone can give me a link for it, it would be much appreciated.
                                            Also, how do you get leader battles to play the leader music while you're fighting them?

                                              I installed RTC and day and night on my rom hack. Does that mean I can know make Pokemon evolve with happiness during day or night?
