You could ask Zeikku, as he has fully implemented a font hack in LC.

    Actually you can search for any text in game and change it, so it is complete, anyhow I'm pretty sure you can do it by either a script editor, or hex...that's all I know off, so I can't help you anymore than that A-text is the way everyone does it...

      How can you make a patch file out of a edited hack?
      And when I open my hack in PokeTEX, it goes not responding, which is annoying, but it works with a clean rom.

      One more thing, wheneven I try to edit my game with tools, I get all sorts of errors, but basically none of them work.

      You can use Lunar IPS (LIPS) to make patches.

      I don't know, because I've never used PokeTEX, nor do I know what it is. :x

      Yeah, that last part wasn't really specific at all, so I can't help you there.

      How do you post pictures for your Rom Hack? And how do you make support banners?

        Thanks, what I meant for the last bit was that whenever I try to open my hack in most tools, such as Evolution Editor DP, or any that use the actual rom, I get runtime errors. I can use the tools that only need the .narc file though.

        well open VBA click file then screen capture, save the file and upload it to places like imageshack, as for support banners i don't get your question how to link them or generally make them? just search make a banner/support banner in Google.

          I can't, it's my own hack, so there is no ips. The only thing I can do is start again, I guess.
          It's on Diamond by the way, if that makes a difference.
          I've started again more than once, and it always come to this.

          Or at least change the starters? DP Starter Editor didn't work for me.
          Locate the scripts in a hex editor and then alter them.

          Nope, there are more spare map names than just them. And you can overwrite any others that you won't use.

          You can't insert anything that's more than 16 colours (15 colours + background colour)
          Index tiles with Irfanview, use google to find it.
          Find the backgrounds with unLZ GBA and insert your own and make the tilemap with NTME, Cyclone or PTC and then insert it and try it out in-game.

          Maybe you overwrote something in the ROM Header.

            You can edit trades with the existing tool Trader, but to add a new trade you need repoint the trade table and add ones.

                  Ok hi eveyoe I'm AeroMaster7 and I own the hack Pokemon Rainbow Gem which is a hack of Platinum. So my question is, How many Pokemon can you add to Pokemon Platinum's Dex/Game without taking any out? More info. Fakemon is what I want to put but I do not want to remove any Pokemon so how many blank spots in the Pokedex and the game are there?

                  You'll need scripting for that. See the tutorials around, decompile existing scripts and experimen yourself.

                    A backup would sure help, of course. Otherwhise you could open both a clean and your hacked ROM into a hex editor and compare the headers.

                      I do have backups, but they all do it, and it happens every time I get anywhere.
                      How do you find the header in a hex editor?

                        Is a tile that has 16 colors are like the tiles of Kyledove, the DP player's house?

                          Ok, I figured out that it was all the text editing that stuffed it up, but I need the text edits, so is there a way to fix it?

                          EDIT: Now I think that it is because the newpoketext trims the rom, but I don't know how to stop it doing it, is there even a way?
