    Well, in the background tutorial it does.

    You don't. The Bit Depth is determined by how many colors are in the palette. To change the Bit Depth, go to 'Decrease color depth...' in IrfanView and select 16 colors. The '(4BPP)' stands for 4 bits per pixel. That is your Bit Depth. 4BPP is 16 colors, 8BPP is 256, and 24BPP is millions of colors.

        when your putting the background image in, are you putting in the original and then the raw, because it's not really working for me

          Yes, but it doesn't really matter which one you insert first.

              I've got the same problem with that blocks, I know my tilemap is too big, but not how to shrink it. (Tilemap is the .raw right? I always get confused of tilemaps and tilesets and stuff =D)

              So, which height and wide do I need to create a nice background?
              And also, in NTME, the FR/LG TS mode, what to do with the last 2 rows? I'm not sure if I should put something in there, or if I should tile them with an "E" thingy. =D

                It doesn't matter. They aren't included.

                  Nice tutorial so far but I am confused with a section of part two.

                  "Now save the tilemap as ‘background.raw’ or something. Now insert it into the ROM by opening unLZ.GBA and going to 2013."

                  Then there is the image.

                  "Now, notice that I did not add any text to the image. There is no ‘Press Start’ I have not yet figured out how to make it blink with a background yet. (With my luck, I will probably figure it out like 10 minutes after I post this tutorial.) Anyway, replace the image with the background"

                  That I am confused with. Ok so if you mean import the background from the beginning. The one that has the black square on it, it says the image is not indexed and if that isn't it, i don't get what you would want to replace it with.

                      Take your image and insert it.

                        Well, yea I know. But I'm just using it as an example.
                        So, you take the original image for the background and insert that.

                            Okay although this is quite a old thread to me.. But its good! Oh and i found our how to make it blinkies and the press start.... You open up paint use the text button to create a text at the bottom <-- Hand corner so that it will not be overlapped by the Pokemon Fire Red Logo... You can type wadeva you wan press start press thiss press taht....
                            Den you indexed it bla bla decrease colour depth save pallete den you go to NTME and select all and put the background into postition... Den now is the fun and easy part you cover the whole background with E's den then after that cover your text with F becoz it makes it blink!
                            There you have it a blinking Press Start!
                            The rest is up to yourself!

                              It's blinking! But, my background that covered with 'F' also blinking (not only the text)...
                              Maybe the palette?

                                Yes, It is the palette. What you need to do is have the Press Start on a solid color. (The solid color has to be one of the colors on the E palette. (I think it is #6). That way, It will blink, and the background will be left untouched.

                                And:

                                          Something I don't understand... I followed the tutorial as it says up to the background part, and I'm trying to do that right now for a hack I'm making of the game, but I don't understand what I'm doing wrong... I'm at the part of importing the images for the background, but I keep ending up with the same result... Any help on how to get past this bug will be appreciated, to see the bug it's attached to this.

                                              I had the same problem - recheck your palette. If necessary, recopy it in infranview.

                                                The tutorial looks simple and very easy to use, i would also like to see the fire that fire red has, if you figure that out let us know, also the start button of course, looking good though

                                                  Editing the fire is as simple as exporting it and changing the frames to what you want. I don't think there's a tilemap though, because it works a bit different than the rest of the titlescreen. And the start button? That's where you import the background too. When putting in a new background, you have to make sure you have one in the tileset, and then place it in your tilemap.
