    How can I rom hack with a computer (netbook) with Mandriva Linux (I will use Ubuntu soon) on this.
    I tried with wine but it can't open.

      Hey, I ran into a problem with AdvanceMap:
      I want to create my maps from scratch, but when I click on the header tab, it only shows "used tilesets" and "map dimensions", instead of music and the name of the map and everything else. How do I make those show up as well?

          For that you have to insert the map you made.

          You can find several hex editors on the team snag'em website. (check my sig)

            No prob.

            Hex Workshop is the best but you must obtain a license somehow *Cough*

            If not you can only use it for 30-days. I am not allowed to link to illegal content on Snag'em and of course here neither.

            I recommend Transhexlation. Even though it's a bit buggy it works.

                So I'm relatively new to hacking and I don't intend to become a serious hacker, but I've been trying to create a Pokemon in a Pokemon Pearl version.

                I've used many tools to edit the Pokemons Sprite, moves, and evolution successfully, but the one thing I haven't managed to do was edit a Pokemons name. I know it's possible, I've seen it on youtube and such, but I would like to know how to do it and what tool I should use.

                Thanks in advance!

                  Is there a tool like unLZ.gba for G/S/C or even R/B/Y? If not, how do I change Pokemon sprites in those games?

                    Hello,

                    I know there have been topics about this, but I've never found one with a definite answer, and I'm sure that it's bothering more people. (Im also quite sure that this isnt the right board to ask but...)

                    When I insert a new map or create a new map, The map gets automatically named Pallet Town, this way when you rename the map, the original pallet town also gets renamed.

                    I think this leads to the problem that you can use only a limited amount of names since every map that is made, is instantly renamed.

                    Is there a solution for this problem?

                    Thank you.

                      Yes, I think there are two. Look for Diamond Crystals, for one.

                      @SuperFlanker-Technically, you should be able to do that with YAPE (which is awesome), or Poke Edit Pro.

                        Correct me if I'm wrong, but those aren't tools for Pearl.

                        I'm looking for a way to change the name in D/P.

                          I guess they're not compressed in the GB/C games. Anyway, load your favorite tile editor and take a look.

                              This is a weird happening I picked up on yesterday:

                              Remember that guy in Cerulean City on FR/LG, who stands outside of Cerulean Cave, telling you that you can't enter? Well, it seems, according to Advance Map, he's not actually in Cerulean City. He's on Route 4 (The Event Editor will tell you there's an event that's not on the map--This one's referring to him.)

                              Now the problem I have is that whenever I try to move him, or even change some of his data so that he could at least be "Hidden" on the Map, the game automatically freezes and resets if I step on a tile near him. And to make things worse, most of the game's tiles just won't overlap him. He still stands there, visible from the end of Route 4.

                              So my problem is: How do I deleted weird person?

                              Edit: I can't just set the flag to make him disappear, since that flag would be the one set after you install the Sapphire on One Island...Which is WAY further off in the hack than I am. Doing that might cause other events that shouldn't be accessed until later to occur. ):

                                For FR/LG/E they are uncompressed.
                                So go with tile molester.

                                  RBY uses one form of compression that has no compressor available, although images can be decompressed with the program rbgfx.c. Pokémon Brown has modified images, because the authors rewrote some assembly code to avoid needing compressed images at all—therefore, that hack uses uncompressed images.

                                  GSC uses another form of compression. Images can be compressed into the ROM with the program AGIXP, although whether or not the program works on a given computer seems to be hit‐or‐miss.

                                    To start with, sorry if this is in the wrong section. As I'm sure you can tell, I've not been here much.

                                    I searched a little, but I couldn't find any tools or guides on how to hack Pokemon into Gold or Silver. So...I ask you how!

                                    Straight after I get my starting Pokemon, I want to add another 5 into my team, so I leave the starting town with 6 Pokemon, all level 5. Can anyone help?

                                    [and once again, apologies if this is in the wrong place, or was covered before]

                                        Learn to script, and the rest will fall into place. I learned to script through this thread with scripting information, but your mileage may vary.

                                          Well you could try making sure everything on your computer is up to date. I have never had any any trouble running yape but many people do. Make sure you have all the files that come with it in the same folder.
                                          That's all I can really say =/
                                          If the program doesn't give you an error message then idk how to figure out the problem...
