      I'm having some tile-adding issues. Every time I save the tileset thing and edit it, then go to load it into Advanced Map, it'll say I don't have a palette file...and sometimes I can't even save the tile block/whatever because it says I have 2 of the same color in my palette.

      And then when I finally do have a saved file and a palette saved for it, and goes and says there can't be such a thing as FEDCBA9876543210...meh.

      I can make the sprites and tiles and such, I can't even experiment much though without being able to add some tiles. UGH. It's getting on my nerves...I don't much care for Advanced Map at this point.

      Well, first of all, you have to save a tileset in advanced map to get the pallette. If you get an error on your pallette(like the 2 of the same colour), then go to the palette editor and change one of the colours that are the same... hope this helps...

              I've been editing Pokemon Fire Red and I've been trying to do a bunch of different things (add trainers, more pokemon you can catch, more legendaries) and I noticed when you get to Pallet Town there's Pink splotches all over the screen. Could this be from me using more than one script editor to make changes? Is there any way I can fix this? Has anyone even heard of this?

              I think it had something to do with that thing on the right side of advancemap (where it says border block) shows you all the available picture sprites you can put in and some are garbled up like they are in the game. I'm wondering if you can use a sprite editor to fix this...

                I reckon your ROM's screwed up.
                Now,can anybody answer this:
                I'm trying to insert a sprite of Ash into my Emerald ROM.But when I do,compressed size is 0x448.I fix that,with free space.No probs.It gets written to the ROM.But,when I go back to the sprite,it's the sprite that was there originally!Is there a way I can fix this?

                That means the image has been re-pointed. It should've worked. Go test it out in-game.

                I don't believe so. The error is caused by using Tileset 2 tiles in side-by-side maps that do not share the same Tileset 2. Basically, the map you're on is trying to read new tiles when the new tiles have not yet been loaded; either remove those tiles (on the map, not in the tileset) or move them away from the border of the map.

                  It's a garbled mess.Looks like a cross between Missingno. and Glitch City.

                  You've repointed it to an un-free offset then.

                      I'm having a problem with all of Darthatron's tools. Whenever I try to use one, it says COM-something-deficiency, a file is missing or invalid.
                      What's wrong?

                      Oh, and is there a tutorial on how to use RMXP?

                      Download the file from Google and place it in your computer's system32 folder.
                      Then run a command prompt and type:

                      regsvr32 xxxx

                      (xxxx = file name)

                      and press enter and you should get a window pooping up sayin that it sucessfully registered. Then it'll work.

                          Either something is wrong with the level script, or you did not set the warp correctly...

                            um hey anyone reading,
                            i have a slight problem with my self-made "hack."

                            It's a ruby hack, so you're starting off in the truck, but every time i try to leave the truck; the ROM restarts.
                            Is there anyway I can cancel out the truck start to avoid this problem, or is there a way to fix it? :3

                            Thanks people :} xx

                            You could have done 2 things wrong with this...
                            1: Edited the Trucks Level Script. (This is a bad thing, you are better off restarting or fixing it somehow.)
                            2: You changed something important OUTSIDE the truck... did you mess up a map oustide?

                            Check these things, and report back.

                              I edited the map outside the truck, but the script is still there and untouched (hopefully).

                              Then it is most likely the map.
                              Try to figure out what had caused it.

                                Now, I have gone through several of the pages, mainly 1 - 50, and still could not find what I am looking for, so let me ask it.

                                Note - I am hacking Pokemon Emerald

                                Alright, here is my problem. I have been hacking Pokemon Emerald, and noticed there is no Legendary Birds/Dogs Over World Sprite. I thought this would be a easy fix just by Exporting the sprite from Fire Red over to Emerald, but the fact that none of the Emerald palettes match any of the Pokemon makes it hard to put them in the game. So there is two questions I need to ask,

                                1.) Is there a way where I can Export a Palette, and Import to another Rom.

                                2.) Is there a way where I can insert a whole new sprite, with out getting rid of anything else?

                                Please help I would really appreciate it, and Thank you in advance.

                                1) Find it's offset and go to it in APE. Save the palette. Then go to your new ROM, find what you want to replace and load your palette.

                                2) There is some way with severe hex editing, I'm sure not many people know this. I think I get what your trying to ask anyways.

                                  Hello, guys.. Actually, I need some help with scripting...
                                  I'm getting started with ROM Hacking. I started trying to script today, btw.. I'm here, cuz I'm having few problems.
                                  Well, it's a kind hard to explain (cuz of my english which is far from good)

                                  Here I go:

                                  With AM, I selected the fat guy in pallet town and oppenned his script and changed some stuff...
                                  For starting the basical script to a message...
                                  "0x16582F" is the offset of the fatguy...
                                  Spoiler:
                                  #org 0x16582F
                                  lock
                                  faceplayer
                                  message $talk
                                  $talk 1 = Hello.
                                  boxset 6
                                  release
                                  end


                                  Till now, I guess everything is right, isn't it ? So... When I try to compile my script I receive a message "Too less parameters on line 4. The correct number is 2"

                                  I also tried with other methods from many others tutorials... The error is always the same...
