      Which version of NSE did you get? The newer one (2.X) or the older one? I usually use the older one for OW sprites, probably just because I'm more comfortable with the older version.

      I'd begin by looking at various events on the map you're trying to warp to. Sometimes, person events cause the game to freeze, especially if they are set to the wrong "hidden" setting. It might be a problem with one of the level scripts as well. If neither of those are the case, I'd open up the header tab, in professional view, and double-check that all the offsets end in 0, 4, 8, or C. If none of those work, The only thing left to do would be to boot up a backup, or at least just make a separate map with the exact same stuff as the first, and see if that does anything.

        I'm using fire red rom and I found the soul silver trainer pictures online and I'm trying to replace those with other sprites in the game. Thank you.
        They are just the same as adding Pokemon you just have to be sure they're 64x64 try this tut http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=183874 but this time replace the trainer sprites in unlz they are located after the POKEMON sprites....

        Just do the method that's in there and you should easily insert trainer sprites... :)

        I think you need to download .net framework for it to work properly but you can also use OWERWORLD EDITOR REBIRTH EDITION they're just the same the only thing that is different is that you can import and export sprites in NSE... :)

          Can someone help me with this?

          Thank you very much.
          I just repost my question, so people can see it. is it okay?

            That's an interesting one. The limit is the total of all your EVs, yeah? There'll be a limiter somewhere in the ROM which specifically disallows for the total being higher than that. I'll see if I can find it.

            thanks but how about in trainerbattle how can make the script continue after losing without using the oak battle tutorial?
            Sorry to say, but it's exactly the same answer. It simply is not designed to allow the script to continue if you lose the battle.

              Oh god thank you so much! My hack will be absolutely awesome, and if you find a way to change the EV limit, you'll be sure to have your name in my game!

                To disable the 510 EV limit, open your ROM in a Hex Editor and change:

                0x439E0 C0 00

                However, I can't guarantee that this will also apply to the Exp. Share EVs. It will definitely work for normal EV application though.

                  Thank you so much dude! But how can I find this "0x439E0 00 C0"

                  I can't find anything like this with my hex editor. :(

                    0x439E0 is an offset where you should go with the "Go to offset" (or whatever your hex editor shows it as) command.
                    There, change the first two bytes you see into 00 C0.

                      It's wierd, it doesn't seem to work. Is this for Fire Red? Are you in 16 bits?

                      000439E0 40 00 81 42 04 DD 10 18 39 19 40 1A 00 04 04 0C This is what I have. Which ones have I to change?

                      I changed the 40 00 in 00 0C, and now the limit is 255.

                        Firstly, I gave you the thing to change the wrong way round.
                        Secondly, you changed it wrong, anyway.

                        Go to 0x439E0 and change it from 40 00 to C0 00.

                          For the latter, also yes.
                          Thanks, I tried, It work! Now, I have a bunch of problem, hope you can use your super brain to reply me.:)

                          1) I want to edit Worldmap 2/3/4, but I can't find at unlz-gba, can you give me those unlz num or anythings to edit them?

                          2) I need to create 2 region so need 8 Elite Four, Can I add the Elite Four before battle the big sprite ( Before battle with Elite Four or champion will appear the big face sprite)? How to add them? I know this is impossible.

                          3) How do I change trainer battle music? Example I use Brock, it track is battle with gym leader and elite four, so I want to change it to champion battle track, how can I do it? ( I not mean Sappy to assembly song, I'm only want to change trainer battle music to other music) And Can I change simple one trainer battle music change to Pallet Town? How to do it?

                          4) Can I change pokemon move sprite and move animation? Example I want to Change AeroBlast to Pokemon The Power of one the lugia AeroBlast? How to change it?

                          5) If I patched the Fire Red +40 OW Sprite patcher at tutorial page to my clean Fire Red Rom, then I patched JPAN Hacked Engine V1.1 to the same Rom, it has any problem with the rom?

                          6) My Fire Red Rom having save problem, I know need to change VBA save type, but when play at gpsp how to save it? How do I fix this problem?

                            Go to 0x439E0 and change it from 40 00 to C0 00.
                            It still doesn't work :( it's stuck to 516 now.

                            I understand what you did, I tried to change this value a little, and I saw that 00 limits to 255 EVs, you add 40 and it gets to the actual 510 EVs, and then x3 for the 1530 EVs (40x3 = C0 in hexadecimal).
                            I thought it would work too this time, but when I tried to train my Eevee (with macho Brace and Pokérus), I could make it go up to 519 and now it's unable to earn EVs anymore.

                            I don't really understand this, it should have worked.

                              Yay lists!

                              1) Worldmaps 1, 2, 3, and 4 in Firered all use the exact same image on UNLZ.gba, but each map has a different tilemap. For info on changing these, I recommend this tutorial.

                              2) I believe you're referring to the Vs Screen before you battle the E4. This is possible, since I did it in my hack, but I don't know where the tutorial is. I recommend searching around the tutorial thread.

                              3) I've heard that there isn't a table or anything that controls what music plays where, so I don't know how to fix it. However, Jambo51 said he had a routine that could accomplish this. I'd PM him, and I also hope he'll post his routine here, because I really want it too @[email protected]

                              4) I don't think anyone's completely figured out how to do move animations.

                              5) I've never tried it, but I'm guessing there might be a small problem, since the table that deals with the 60,000+ OW has a pointer to the original OW data, and not to the newly repointed OW data that I assume the 40+ Sprite patch would have. Just go in with a hex editor, and do some poking around to find your pointers and replace the old one with the new one.

                              6) I think pretty much all ROMs have trouble saving on VBA. I've played ShinyGold on both No$GBA and VBA, and it saved fine in one, and failed in the other. I've even played a normal Emerald rom, and it failed to save as well. The best option is to just take savestates of the game.

                                I got the older version of NSE one cause i thought it would be easier to use.

                                  I'd begin by looking at various events on the map you're trying to warp to. Sometimes, person events cause the game to freeze, especially if they are set to the wrong "hidden" setting. It might be a problem with one of the level scripts as well. If neither of those are the case, I'd open up the header tab, in professional view, and double-check that all the offsets end in 0, 4, 8, or C. If none of those work, The only thing left to do would be to boot up a backup, or at least just make a separate map with the exact same stuff as the first, and see if that does anything.
                                  My map-script offset ends in a 7, is that the problem?

                                      I thought it would work too this time, but when I tried to train my Eevee (with macho Brace and Pokérus), I could make it go up to 519 and now it's unable to earn EVs anymore.

                                      I don't really understand this, it should have worked.
                                      There's a secondary check later which I didn't spot. Go to 0x43A3C and change it to EXACTLY THIS: F9 05 00 00

                                      If that doesn't solve it, then there are checks deeper inside the actual Pokémon encrypter, which would take some time to find.

                                              I've actually seen this tutorial, and it didn't end up working for me v.v. I was actually referring to different battle themes depending on the trainer class, which isn't always easy to do with variables, since trainer battles freeze when the first command is something that isn't "trainerbattle ...". He mentioned such a routine a page or two ago, and I was hoping to try it out.

                                              2 - You can use one of my routines which creates a table which allows definitions of regional music and trainer class based music (so you could define Team Rocket to have a battle theme, for example).


                                              While we're at it, it's also possible to define more custom encounter music. I'll add the code in question to this post when I get to my PC.

                                              Hope this helps.

However, Jambo51 said he had a routine that could accomplish this. I'd PM him, and I also hope he'll post his routine here, because I really want it too @[email protected]
                                                    Working on it. It needs some tidying up.

I've played ShinyGold on both No$GBA and VBA, and it saved fine in one, and failed in the other. I've even played a normal Emerald rom, and it failed to save as well. The best option is to just take savestates of the game.
                                                    Not if you set them to the correct save type. Save states actually cause massive problems, particularly on RSE where the PRNG won't get reseeded, which leads to problems quite quickly. I've tried VBA, VBA-M, VBA-L, VBA-H, No$ and No$ debugger and they all save correctly, provided you set the save type right.
