    No, they are only in the pallet town folder, that's the problem. I need the route1 map to be in the route 1 folder, and the startertownmap in the pallettownfolder.

    And about your map connections, you need to change the offset:
    The connection from the left to the right, fill in -3, from right to the left, fill in 3.
    If it's not correct, keep trying that way.

        To put a map in the proper folder, go under the Header option when that map is open. There is a drop down menu. Select the right name from that list. Then, Save. Reopen the ROM in Advance Map, and the map should be moved to the right place.

              Chriskid198:

              well, you almost have it right. Just fix the tiles so that they line up/look right. I think it looks correct so far. The corrupted border tile... not completely sure, but try filling it in with a tree sprite and see how that works.

              IceArceus:

              Open Advance Map and your rom in there, and find where you want your character to be. Then click the Events tab and scroll all the way down. Add 1 to the Person events, and click Change Events. Look at the farthest upper left tile on the same map, and drag the player sprite to where you want him to be. Mess around with the Picture No. for which sprite the character uses. As for his script, use HxD to find a suitable empty spot(Free Space Finder isn't what I like to use; I like HxD better because you get to choose), and type in that offset in Script offset. Then, go into XSE, open your rom, go to THAT offset, and type out your script. If you need help, I might be able to assist with the format. Once you're done, click the gear button; the one whose alt message is Compile. That saves the script to the offset you're at, which is what you want. I don't really like Script Generator all that much because it seems to choose a random empty spot, and it wastes space because there's other empty spots that aren't used right before it; EX: 08800000 is empty, and it chooses 08810500 or similar.

                  Okay, this isn't right:
                  The maps as they should be, from left to right:
                  Crossroads 'final' attempt1.PNG

                  Route 2.PNG

                  And this is as it turns out to be, ingame:

                    WOAH. o_o

                    Well, it looks like you're connecting somewhere that has a lot of border blocks.

                    Make sure the map bank and map values are right. If they were right, then it would at least look slightly screwed up but you could go further and see the right tiles afterwards. Or you could simply have different tilesets between the maps. Check their headers.

                      Yeah, that's what I thought so in the beginning.
                      The problem started after I changed the sizes of the map on the right (I made it half its original size), before that the connections were perfectly fine.
                      I think I'll reset the connection, that'll prob do the job.

                      Okay, so, I gave the map on the right this song, to check whether or not it was the correct map. It ís the correct map, the bank and map numbers are correct, and I didn't even use the tile which is shown as a error, in my map.

                      And now this:
                      Fire Red (Masterz patch)6.png
                      All tile errors and stuff, not very alike the map I made.

                        Well the maps connections are connected at the side. Does it work the same?

                          I fixed the glitch, it seemed to have something to do with the map itself, because the same tiles in a different map turn out with no problems at all.

                            Congratulations! I have kinda fixed the errors, but I still have to edit the maps to make it work...

                              Thank you! I finally figured out why the cave entrances in the Diglett's Cave tile sets weren't working right. :D

                                Arghh... The map errors are still happening

                                If I post the maps here, can you have a look for things that might make things not work..





                                Thanks!

                                EDIT: Don't worry about this. I have canceled this hack and have started working on another one.

                                      Is that all one map, or is it 2 maps (a town connected to a route)? No-one can help you if you don't give information that could be helpful.

                                      Though, it does look like one... What exactly did you do before taking the snapshot? Did you leave the map and come back or what? Not enough info there.

                                        Lemme try and explain it.
                                        It is a town connected to a route. It happens when I walk into the route and back, it fixes itself when I enter a house/building. Uhmm, what other kind of information do you need?

                                          None, for that is enough.

                                          In the Connections editor thing, where it says offset after selecting which connection, the route one must be like the towns one, but with a - in front of it, for example:

                                          The town has 8 in the offset part, meaning the route needs a -8 in the offset for that same connection too.

                                          If they are different, it results in what you have.

                                            Oh, so it's the Offsets that are causing the problem?
                                            Do they need to be the exact opposite numbers? I have 4 on the town, and -3 on the Route. Lemme try and fix it. Thanks!

                                            EDIT: It works now :D
                                            Thank you.

                                                Did you edit a already existing map? It should then already be in the game.

                                                If you didn't edit a map, and clicked create new map; when it is made, click the button next to the "Create New Map" Button.


                                                Did it work?

                                                  If you didn't edit a map, and clicked create new map; when it is made, click the button next to the "Create New Map" Button.


                                                  Did it work?
                                                  Well, for now I did and managed to make the new map (I used the reserved one at the bottom of the bank if that helps to know) but I dont have same options for this map under Wild Pokemon and Header like all the other existing maps. Did I do something wrong?

                                                  Edit - I think I did mess up so I clicked on the new map above that one and started editing it, but when I edit it the name it changes the name of the other map. Like for example I want to make a Route going west of Route 1 in Kanto. I make the new map and its automatically at the bottom of the bank called ROUTE 1 (3.??). Then I edit that one and the edits stay, but the name wont stay without changing the original route 1.

                                                  Edit again - Nevermind I got it! Now Im stuck again lol. Like I have both routes connected right. How do I make the new route connect to the center left/route of the target route?

                                                  The target route is vertical and the new route is horizontal and I'm trying to connect it to the center sides.

                                                  Third Edit - I screwed up big time. I need help

                                                  Fourth Edit - Nevermind I FINALLY fixed it!! Now I can make new maps. Thanks for the help dude.

                                                    New to PC, sorry if I put this in the wrong place.

                                                    I've been using Advanced Map for 8-9 months now, but one issue I have is that every map I insert keeps the name of Littleroot Town or Pallet Town, and if I try to change it, it also changes the name of the actual Littleroot Town or Pallet town.

                                                    Is there any way I could fix/correct this?
