      Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...!!

      It's awesome... mind-blowing... can't wait to try out everything =D

      Thanks a bunch... seriously... this is more I could ever dream of.

      One question though, will any tutorials that use older AdvanceMap versions still work?

      (I see the Dutch INI has improved a lot, the one I had (from version 1.82/1.83 or something like that) contained lots of grammar and spelling mistakes. Oh well, I'll make myself a new one anyway ^^)

                        The new version was very good..But the language PORTUGUESE of BRAZIL no this working... and some codes of the behaviour types in FireRed still don't work. Example the 03 (animation of the high gram, that I verified that the rom has the animation) but the command doesn't activate.

                        Even with those small problems the version 1.9 this wonderful one!!

                        Thank you very much for that!

                        good-bye!
                        (I am Brazilian and I wrote that with a translator's help. XD)

                          the Tileset image will now save compressed, and will ask (Repoint dialog) if you need to repoint.


                          @Derlo;3350931: i have answerd in the translation Thread.^^


                          @all:Translations are still needed, please ask me first perhaps a other person is still working on the same language.

                              Hey LU-Ho there is a problem with my AM.
                              It says that "all ini files have to be placed in their directories and the respective sub directories" or something like that.

                              I finished downloading it LU-HO, and from what i've seen so far, this new version is amazing!

                              Maybe I'll be able to incorporate some of these new ideas into my Mac Mapping Program.

                              Simply fantastic! You're a genius! I love the World Map Editor, it is fantastic, it will make peoples lives so much easier. Palette Editor is a great idea too, for all the lazy people, like me. You've done so much and it is all great, can't wait 'till V. 1.91! :D

                                Wow! **Faints**
                                I've been expecting this for ages!
                                Nowwe can edit World Map Data! Also the tilesets are compressed!
                                Pallete editing is also very handy!
                                Thanks so much LU-HO!

                                I'm more of a hacker in training, but the release of programs like this are a big boost to moral and a nice step in the right direction; this make me want to try to hack even more.

                                Thanks LH.

                                Simply amazing! The level script editor will especially come in handy for me.

                                EDIT: This is what happened when I tried to create a new pallete in an unused one. In AdvanceMap the colours are perfect but when I run it this happens:

                                A bug? Or is there a work around?

                                This is what it looks like in AdvanceMap:

                                  I got 1.90 yesterday. I must say, very amazing. Just when you think AdvanceMap has got it all covered! I do dislike the fact that it is that much easier for some noob to edit the ROM now.

                                  Thanks LU-HO and Mastermind_X.

                                    Now you can call A-map Advance! xd

                                    If you could at least change the picture of the region, not only where the towns/routes are.

                                      @dshayabusa: That bug, about the palletes, is probabby because you've used 12+ Palletes, usually the 12th pallete is the last, but AM shows up to 15 palletes.

                                      Also, I have a question for LU-HO, the Black Screen when entering a map bug...
                                      I have that on Dewford Town Map, in Crystal Shards Rom, that means if I edit it with this new version, It'll be fixed, or already damaged maps will stay like that forever?

                                        That's really hard to put in, that is what cyclone is for...
                                        I love the fact we can change the map data

                                        I think the best feature is the pallete editor, its fun to play around with

                                        Only question: since i'm using a-map 1.9, my scripts from the old one are still in...but the unowns and var numbers are backwards, should i re-switch them, or did you change that in a-map 1.9?

                                          This is the best tool ever,
                                          And pallete editing is so much easier,
                                          And finally we can edit world map data. I've been waiting for this for ages and its finally here xD
