      I would suggest adding the "give pokedex/ nationaldex" to the script generator or putting it into the give item section unless you think it's too minor to be made into a whole new section in which case can you tell me how to do it for the national dex right here?

        If Pokedex / National dex can't be selected with "give item" command, it's not recognized as an item in the game.

        To make the game give you a National dex, check how the script, in which you receive the "item", works in the original rom file.

          Well that's another thing. I've selected PKSV as my scrpit editor in Advance- Map but everytime I try to open scrpit to see what I need to edit, it gives me the error "No ROM open!" and then it opens a blank PKSV page...
          *EDIT* nvm fixed

            How do I put the scripts in A-Map? I press on the character and it just freezes my game. :I

              So today, I tried starting PKSV up. Then this error pops up: "Could not lo ad Scintilla.dll! Make sure you extracted PKSV-UI correctly!".

              I am aware someone already posted this question, but the solution didn't seem to work for me. It used to work before, but it won't work today. Strange. So I deleted it and re-downloaded and re-extracted it, but when I opened it, it still does the same thing! I don't know what to do now... I'm supposed to release the beta version of my game one month from now, but it seems it would be delayed.

              Edit: It's fixed now. ^0^

              Did you compile to the wrong offset? That could be a problem.

              For me, the first time I scripted I didn't compile correctly, and a garbled text box appeared. So double check whatever you did.

              Try running the AssociateShell (or whatever) file, and if all else fails, just download it again, I guess.

              And wow, good luck to you, and I hope you finish your hack! Two gyms is a very long process for me...*sad*

                Nevermind, I rebooted my PC and it started working again. o.o

                  Hello! I have a problem with PKSV and Pokemon Gold. I've set PKSV as my script editor in JohtoMap, but when I try to decompile scripts I just get an error message. See attachements for a print screen of the error. Thanks for reading and I hope to solve this soon.

                      Hi everybody!
                      I'm sorry but I'm a noob here and I don't know where to post this question:

                      I'm using Advancemap and pksv as script editor.
                      I've made so far 3 talking scripts (using script generator of pksv) on the same map, and they work perfectly.
                      But when I create a 4th talking script on the same map, the person with that script only says the 2nd or 3rd script.
                      What it's happening and how should I correct this?
                      Thank you so much in advance for your answer.
                      Best regards,
                      Pokemaniaco :P

                        Try not to open a dead blog anymore. OK, but I think the problem is the program. You have to open it up again and restart because the program just goes over the older thing that you have made. This has happened to me to. I have to redo a whole city because of it. It says as you try to make a new script that you should try to save your work, but I didn't so now I have to redo it. Hope this helped.

                              In your basic tutorial, you say to go to 'Settings' in Advance Map, and choose the script porgram from there. Well, I don't know what version of Advance Map you used, but my version doesn't have that button! Is there any other way to do it that you know of?

                                  What "play game" function are you talking about ?

                                  If you meant "VBA-Link" it isn't PGE, you need to set it up, and if you don't know how to do that, ANY search engine can become your friend ;-)

                                      I got this working on Linux using Wine, just opened the .BAT file in Wine before starting the program and it all seems to be functioning as normal. I originally tried using Poketext because I'm changing NPC speech but none of the text was showing properly, so this has helped an awful lot :3

                                      Oh, also, I just wanna say this works really nicely with Advancemap, selected as the script editor, you don't even need to copy-paste the offset from Advancemap.

                                      Anyone else who is using Linux and is having trouble installing it with Wine, feel free to PM me.

                                        All right now Im kinda sad.. I read that this tool will no Longer be worked on=( How sad is that. Well I guess my first question is Will anyone take it over and keep up with updating it? or will this tool become frozen in time=(? I Honestly think this tool has Potential to be the best scripting editor for pokemon gb and gba games? the script generator is one of the most fasinating things I have seen and know hands down their are others out there who think the same.. I know others love XSE but to be Honest XSE is not really beginner friendly, as so This tool really is and I know it shouldnt be easy but why not make it less stressful and more productive. XSE could be the best if it had a script generator and the free space finder already build in just like PKSV with the #dyn 0x740000 command.... And ONE more thing why is it when I hit the only download link that I can see do I only get the PKSV-UI and not the pksv.exe file??? can anyone answer that for me please?

                                          in place of pksv.exe, run the AssociateShell.bat file. make sure to run as administrator if you're on windows.

                                            I am trying to achieve that you as the hero go up to someone in the game and they ask you if you want to look after a pokemon and if you say 'YES' it willl say 'EEVEE Joined the team.' and an EEVEE joins the team or if you say 'NO' it says 'Desided not to care for it.' Can you or someone else fix this problem?
                                            Thanks ShinyLucario_09

                                            Hey there ShinyLucario_09. In the toolbox forum, there's a limit on posting in threads- if more than two months has passed since the last valid post was made, then I'm afraid you may not revive/bump the thread.

                                            score_under, if for one reason or another you need this thread reopened, just contact either DrFuji or myself via PM and we'll happily oblige. In the meantime, this thread will be closed.
                                            Closed~
