      I know that this may be asking for a bit much. And I'm truly not sure how it could be done or implemented. But do you think that you would be able to do a common mistakes? I think it would be kind of hard to do since you actually know what you're doing. Lol

        Common mistakes... It's certainly not too much, but I need some more insight. Do you mean like common mistakes that hackers make when using various tools? Or common mistakes made when hackers are mapping? Or when they're scripting? If you take a look at my Advice and Errata video, I go over some of the things that people do when mapping but really shouldn't in my opinion, like 1 X 1 pathways. Give that a watch and let me know if you're thinking a little bit differently for the idea you have in mind. :)

                            It's tough to say. Everything dealing with tiles including custom tiles and animations have already been done, in addition to lots of scripting concepts. I plan on finishing all of scripting by the end of August but after that is cloudy because school resumes. I'll have a formal update video eventually. Thank you for your support!

                                    I haven’t really been following these, so I only watched the most recent tutorial. It was mostly good, but here are the issues I noticed:

                                    Using Advanced Trainer is dated. It doesn’t allow for things that most hacks have nowadays like expanded pokemon, attacks, items (ignoring shenanigans like what people do to A-Map, I’m guessing). I’ve never used it, but most people seem to recommend Hopeless Trainer Editor.

                                    “AI Value” in A-Trainer is NOT the AI of the Pokemon. IIRC, bitshifted by 0x3, they’re for the IVs of the Pokemon.

                                    It should also be worth noting that for trainer AI - it’s actually a bitfield. It seems that you may know this because you even point it out and say it “doesn’t work like you might think.” But if I were listening, I would be left wondering what it really is. In fact, even in the link you posted, it isn’t made clear that it’s a bitfield. Speaking of the link, you should probably credit knizz and daniils since that looks like a direct copy + paste?

                                    On set trainer flag and clear trainer flag - XSE has it reversed. A set trainer flag means the battle is done. To clear the flag would mean you can do the battle again. The trainer flags work the same way you would expect any other flag and event to work. I think it would be better to just explain that XSE has the names wrong, rather than explain it with the wrong terminology just to conform to XSE’s names.

                                    Other than that, nice tutorial :D I’m glad someone is making this to help people get started.

I’ve never used it, but most people seem to recommend Hopeless Trainer Editor.
                                      The main gig in this tutorial was to show off how to script a trainerbattle and how to properly use its various types. AdvancedTrainer is dated, but for the most part it gets the job done. The real point I was trying to nail with showing off a trainer editor to begin with was that there are resources out there that allow you to edit and customize your own trainers, and these tools will give you each trainer's flag value so you know how to reference them in XSE. Expanded features are indeed becoming more frequent nowadays, but I have never mentioned them in my past tutorials since I'm aiming to keep things beginner-friendly. I think the realization that one needs to find a more robust trainer editor will come naturally as one gains more experience with hacking and decides to try out some more advanced things.

                                      I did not know this! I'll make sure to mention it in the next Adv and Era video.

It seems that you may know this because you even point it out and say it “doesn’t work like you might think.” But if I were listening, I would be left wondering what it really is. In fact, even in the link you posted, it isn’t made clear that it’s a bitfield. Speaking of the link, you should probably credit knizz and daniils since that looks like a direct copy + paste?
                                      It doesn't matter how it works under-the-hood. It's important for the audience to know what will happen if the value is set to some number. Nothing beyond that is necessary and I think it would just confuse people.
                                      As for the link, I actually asked what the different values represent in a thread not too long ago and was given that list by a user; however, the quote didn't have an "originally from:" label on it. That may have been impatience on my end.

To clear the flag would mean you can do the battle again. The trainer flags work the same way you would expect any other flag and event to work. I think it would be better to just explain that XSE has the names wrong, rather than explain it with the wrong terminology just to conform to XSE’s names.
                                      Yeah, maybe it would be better that way, I'm not sure. I just figured in the moment that it would be more confusing for someone who has never worked with trainers before to have to remember that the wording is flip flopped. But I agree I should say something about that. I'll make sure to add it to my next Adv and Era video!

                                              After tutorial #3 i thought it was time for me to try and edit a block of tiles to make my trees white/gray. easier said than done 0.0 I guess practice makes perfect! it makes me appreciate your efforts even more when i think of how much you worked hard to be able to do what you do.

                                                Would these tutorials be a guide to the best tools for FireRed hacks? It's quite difficult to find the latest/most effective.

                                                  It's a lot of doing and redoing and doing over again, but in the end all of the practice pays off like you say!

                                                  Not necessarily the absolute best tools, but I show off everything that needs to be shown in order to accomplish whatever tasks each tutorial sets out to accomplish. I may end up pointing out more robust and flexible tools if we get into more complex things that warrant better tools, but at the moment the topics being discussed don't require super impressive or modern tools.
