    This is a pretty easy thing you're trying to do so there is also a newbie-friendly tutorial for this stuff.
    Editing level-up moves and evolutions

    If you're having problems, PM me or join Skeetendo and ask on that thread I linked.

      Since I'm relatively new to hacking I was messing around with a hack. I was trying to edit the intro hero, but before I knew what I was doing I inserted one that was to small using UnLZ. But now that I want to put in a proper one I can't for some reason. Using UnLZ it just doesn't appear even though I was able to use that way on a clean rom. And using NSE I can't make the sprite 8 x 12 so that I can insert a new one. So my question is, is there anyone to change it back from 8x8 to 8x12 ?

        Okay, so I've been learning some asm recently, and, I must say - people make it out to be a lot harder than it really is. It's a bit annoying to remember the syntax, but using it is easy, or at least, far easier than I was expecting.

        But, I do have a little question - does pushing registers actually set the value in the register to zero? That may be a silly question, but as far as I can tell, all it does is put the data into the stack.

        The reason why I ask is that, I have a routine that actually requires pushing the registers in the middle of it (parts of it need manipulating a lot of registers at once), and I didn't want to have to have a ton of lines of "sub rx,rx,rx" if I don't need them.

          I keep getting the same error code over and over again any time I try to use a map editing program. "Component COMDLG32.OXC or one of its dependencies is not correctly registered: A file is missing or invalid." Now before you ask, I have located said file and have tried everything I can think of to make it register with the program, placing it in the same folder is the most obvious of choices BUT it doesn't work. Plain and simple.

          Suggestions?

            Just a simple YAPE can do that.

              Now I'm having a different problem with the same warp as before. I go to the warp at the top of the stairs in the player's room, which I have changed to go downstairs to a hallway-like floor which has stairs at the other end to take the player down to the main floor (I have attached a picture of this map). When I try to go down the stairs, the game freezes. I can't move or open the menu or do anything, it's just frozen. I have checked tile behaviors, made sure the warps connect, made sure all other events in both maps are good, but it still doesn't work.

                I managed to fix my size issue but now I have another problem. I changed the intro sprite in both NSE & UnLZ (Because the change wasn't working in UnLZ). NSE & UnLZ both show the same sprite but the in game sprite is the old one. Anyway I can fix that?

                  You need to take the file, and register it with Windows. I'd suggest looking up how to register .OCX files online, since I can't really explain it well. It involves using the command prompt, and a little logic, however.

                  Just as clarification, is it freezing when you step on the warp, or is it warping to a black screen, then freezing?

                  Here is what I think happened:
                  You inserted a smaller sprite over a larger one. Since it was smaller, you were able to successfully overwrite the larger one with it, so it showed up in-game just fine. You then attempted to put a larger sprite over a smaller sprite. If you do this in most programs, the image will be placed somewhere in free space, and not overwrite the smaller sprite. Basically, your new, large sprite is at a different offset than the smaller one. The game, when it runs the intro sequence, probably loads the image from the smaller one's offset. The solution would be to change the hex code to load the image from the larger one's offset. You could do this by searching for the smaller images offset in a hex editor, and replacing it with the larger image's offset.

                    It freezes as soon as I step on the warp. I even tried linking it back to the downstairs like it normally is, and the same thing happened.

                      How would I find the smaller images offset? It was 46163C (Something similar I have it saved in notepad) but I was able to overwrite that with an image with an image with less kb. So when I go to where the smaller image was it's replaced but in game its still the old one.

                        So I applied a patch to my firered rom, (found here:http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=4156287&postcount=146) for new tiles since i suck at manually adding new ones in or creating them. But the problem is that whenever a door is used the tiles for the house get messed up. (Just apply the patch to a clean fire red rom and play it. you'll see what I mean)

                          I thought he would have to change the pointer to the offset? not the actual offset. i dunno i could be wrong :P

                          neway dude, lets assume ur sprites are named orig, replaced by sprite1, replaced by sprite2. if u want to change the pointer, just open up ur rom in a hex editor, split the offset of sprite1 up into bytes, reverse them and add 08 (so 46 16 3C would become [3C 16 46 08] <--- thats a pointer) use the find function to find where ever the sequence showed up. Take the offset of sprite2, make it a pointer and replace the pointers (note the position of it tho). Check if it changed, if not, go back, change the sequence back and find the next instance of the sequence. Thats assuming the intro sequence loads the pointer (which i'm pretty sure it does)

                          but thats really complicated... just start over with a fresh rom. When i first tried changing the intro hero, when i used the 'automatically fix pointers' it only changed the first time, when i inserted a new image after that for the intro hero, it didn't. So i think UnLZ only checks for the pointer 1 time. so back up ur rom each time u try, and restart the process if it messes up.

                            You're partially right in this regard. The first time around, you're replacing the actual hero sprite, and UNLZ.gba would then turn all pointers of the original image into pointers for the new image (Call it Image1). If you then try to change the image again (Call in Image2), you have to turn all pointers of Image1 into the pointers if Image2. So, opening up UNLZ.gba and going to the original original sprite, aka the one of Red or Leaf, putting in a new image, and trying to automatically repoint won't do anything, because nothing points to that image in the first place anymore. And I don't know, maybe you didn't do that, but I just want to make sure everyone who reads this understands.

                            When you say mess up, do you mean all the tiles glitch out, or are there little bits and pieces that sort of animate when you open a door? The latter happened to me once, and it's usually because the very last five or so tiles, while they may be invisible when editing tiles, are actually used for doors in games. When I make my tiles, i generally don't put anything in the last row, just to be safe.

                                  That's because you need the National Dex in order to evolve non-Kanto Pokemon in FRLG. You can activate the national Dex by using the command 'special 0x16F' in a script. Place it in a person event or green script tile and interact with it in-game. The best time to activate this would be when you get your regular Pokedex.

                                    First, my question, because I'm honestly stumped on what to do, so forgive me if the answer is straightfoward or not.

                                    For reasons that would just bore anyone if I told why, I need to make a way to make the player dismount their bike. I know there's a special that forces the player onto the bike, and I intend to use it as well, but I need a way to take the player off of the bike, using only a script and nothing else, so no special tile behaviors or anything.

                                    Now seems like a great time to boot up your backup. It seems you messed up something inside your game that controls warping or something.

                                      Hey guys. Does a learning move modifier for GSC exist? I really need to find one. D:

                                        I have two problems with my Fire Red Rom.
                                        First, when I add my new pokemon into the game as starters and I leave my house for the first time, the screen goes black and freezes. I've checked without my new Pokemon in the game and it doesn't freeze until I put them in. Why is this happening?
                                        Second, when I insert a trainer into Advance Map, I try to save it and it won't let me. I used Advance Trainer to make a new trainer, gave it a new script and used that script offset for the trainer, and it won't let me save my work on Advance Map. How do I fix this?

                                          Hi everyone! I'm really new into ROM hacking. Actually, I don't know much about it (I'm not even sure if my post is in the right section), but how hard can it be to translate a game into another language? Apparently, the tool Advance Text works like a charm. But my language always likes to be unique, and the case is the same when we come to writing it.

                                          Therefore, I can write some letters without problem (ö, ü, á, é, ó), but some of them can't seem to work. I can understand why ő and ű are not supported, but what about í? It is used in at least the Spanish version as well.

                                          So my question is: how can I get the letters Ő/ő, Ű/ű and Í/í show up in the translation? Please don't forget that I'm still a noob, so most likely I wouldn't understand too deep technical stuff.:embarrass

                                          (Also, a bonus point is given if you can find out which language I'm talking about.:))

                                          How would one go about changing which flag activates which HM? Or, how does one change which order the badges appear in the trainer card?

                                            I'm trying to include a charmander give away script into my game....
                                            Anyway that isn't the problem.....
                                            When I receive the charmander it is called "Kachu" and this is the same when I try to modify the wild pokemon.
                                            For bulbasaur there isn't even a name.....

                                            What could be the problem? am I using an outdated version?

                                              I was worried someone would say that. I've made significant other progress on the hack, but I suppose my backup will have to do. Could size incompatibilities between maps be an issue? I would just really like to know what went wrong.
