    Can you tell me what number you did to add the palette cause mine stuffs up

      Following the directions exactly will guarantee your success with the palette and image. It's really not that hard at all. However, there is the issue of a Pokemon sprite being altered that I talked about.

        I did everything like putting the number as 64 in FSF for the palette but it doesnt work

                    You were actually wrong, the first ???????? before bulbasaur is a placeholder error buffer glitch handler sort of thing of some importance, I heard on bulbapedia. So, bang goes your theory, -DARK-. :afro:

                      does this perhaps work with editing trainer's sprites? like if i wanted to change a bug catcher to look like misty, could i use the same/similar method? i know this doesn't have a whole lot to do with the tutorial, but i need help on changing trainer sprites, and this was the closest thing i could find. it looks like it would work...

                        Sorry if I'm saying something that no one else is having trouble with but when I go to download the 2nd and 3rd links I can't get them, Do you guys think that's just m computer or is something going on in that link?
                        Also is there any alternate programs I would be able to use the same way

                          I'm having similar issues that others are having. I followed all the steps perfectly (apparently not though), but when I try to insert my sprite into Un-LZ it says the sprits aren't indexed. I can insert the picture with out the infrared swap (background swapped). I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be helpful.

                            I honestly can't believe people are still reading this..

                            As for all the 'q's, I have no idea. I know nothing about this type of things. I just figured out a way to get it to work for me, but have no idea /why/ it works... Sorry. X_X

                                I tried it in Ruby, and it restarts the ROM every time I 'see' the Pokemon.

                                And in FireRed, when I see it, the game makes a weird sound and freezes..

                                  For some reason, YAPE won't let me edit the Pokedex entry of a new Pokemon I'm trying to add in on a blank space. How do I fix this?

                                    My MEWTHREE is messed up, I replaced QWILFISH's data.
                                    Also in unLZ.gba, I replaced sprite 00 with MEWTHREE's sprite, is that the problem?

                                      @ above - OKAY.
                                      @sazandora11 - Reread the tutorial. (:
                                      @janj - yes, that is a problem.
                                      @ziprider - Repoint the text. But honestly, it's kind of pointless b/c the pokedex doesn't work for new pokemon ATM.
                                      @complans - you're doing it wrong.
                                      That's as far up as I'm willing to look. X)

                                          Are you following the directions? Simple question I know but it's often the cause for peoples mishaps, misreading or missing a small part of the tutorial. Open your rom and selct the pokemon you want to evolve, next head straight to other stats / evolutions, click the box on the right called 'add', next simply click the drop down list to select the pokemon you want it to evolve into. then you have to select evolution type, here is where most people go wrong, as the default is breeding and so your pokemon will not evolve unless you change this, there are many options, stone, level etc. im guessing its level you want, next just change the level at which you want the evolution to take place. I suggest a low level to begin with to test whether the evolution works (which it should if youve follwed all the directions) then simply changed it to the desired level later on.

                                          You have 2 options when editing a pokemons mini sprite, for a long time all you could use was pokepic, which is a useful tool in itself, however the program wasnt designed for firered etc.
                                          What i would recomend now is Wichu's advance series kit, it provides three tools that let you edit a pokemons sprite really easily, its position on the screen and its mini sprite, the tools can be found under, emulation, toolbox, advance series. however your rom must be a US base for these tools to work as ini do not exhist for other countries, i believe there may be a german ini but what use is that?

                                          IMPORTANT - WHY IS YOUR IMAGE NOT INDEXED?
                                          So many people, especially recently have been asking why, when they follow the steps perfectly, their image is not indexed when they attempt to import it into unLZ. This is because you have a later version of the program paint that does not work with this method. This is because the Paint program that came with windows XP and the like will keep an images palette the same as whatever was opened in it, no matter how you edit the image. However, later versions (In an attempt to be more useful) Do not have this feature, as it is seen as a draw back that will limit your colour choosing capabilities, so, when you copy your first image back over the indexed image, you are essentially leaving yourself with a perfect replica of what you began with, ie, not an indexed image. The only way that I see to remedy this, is to download and install an earlier version of Paint. Though there may be other ways, I have not found them yet.

                                          - The other, and probably more simple option is to reverse the background and the black colours manually using the left/right click rubber and pipette method, before inserting them into Irfan View, this way way you swap these colours they will change to be the correct way round and you will not have to open the file in paint after, remember though to not select the background colour as transparent, doing so prevents this method from working. The only slight problem with this technique is that your sprite may have one or two small imperfections. To avoid this load your sprite into Irfan View, decrease colour depth, then open in paint, address any imperfections with colours chosen from the image, then continue with swapping the colours etc. Hope this helps.
