    Its not a visible script its a level script:
    Spoiler:

    Just click 'Remove'. Make sure you have the '1' map script selected, and not the '0' map script.
    In other words, press the up arrow.

    They probably use the same tileset. If you are using tileset 12 as a base, then yes they both would change. However, tileset 23 is JUST for the Viridian Gym. Edit that one instead.

    I have never done editing on tilesets, however I found a list of usable tilesets and it appears many of them are implemented, but never used. Perhaps instead of editing the original tileset, you could use one of the unused ones?
    Here's the list if it helps: LIST

      Concerning Littleroot script, did you remove level scripts? (provided there is any on that map). If you don't know what I'm talking about, make sure that "Professional Header" is unchecked in A-Map's settings, then open Littleroot's map, go to the Header tab, and see if the "hidden" script is there.
      Concerning your question I have the same issue as you, I just edit some other tiles and I don't touch those that are "shared" or w/e what they are.
      I don't think you can do that, to make a tileset you need to use a picture as a source, if I can call it like that.
      I don't like to be harsh but please try to search before asking... a simple "create new tileset a-map" search on Google links you to this tutorial. :]

        Cool, I'm glad it worked. Also, double posts get merged in most of the Rom Hacking section so stop apologizing:p.

          I'm having a palette problem here. I'm using NSE 2.x to change the main hero sprites, and the front worked perfectly, also with palette, no problem. Only the backsprite is a bit... vague. Somehow, when saving the new palette, there's no repoint, and it still uses the may/brendan palette (hacking ruby btw).

          So, I changed the palettes of may and brendan 'manually' using APE, but it now looks messed up/mixed.

          Original, also as shown in NSE:

          dropboxDOTcom/s/t02p44n09i71rmw/Backsprite%20pallette.png

          And how it is now ingame:

          dropboxDOTcom/s/ktekodufljcxg1l/Backsprite%20pallette2.png

          Hope someone has experience with these backsprites... Anyway, thanks in advance

                When you assign PKSV-UI or XSE as the script editor in Advance Map, click 'No' in the dialog box that appears, or else the ROM will not open, as the offsets are separated by nullstings, and not colons.

                  Hi, I'm new to ROM hacking and I just wanted to know if there is a program/tool that allows me to edit Pokemon attack descriptions for Emerald? For example, I've modded the move Crunch so that it's physical and lowers Def (instead of Sp. Def in Gen 3), but I can't change the description in PGE's Attack Editor...

                    You can change the description, you just have to create one using XSE and then change the attack description pointer to match the new one. However, there are tools that can change the description right inside of them: Advance Text and A-tack(? It is a pure attack editor, but the right name might be different) and Move Editor. The XSE method is the safest, as the other options can bug out, but the others will definitely be easier.

                    This is exact question has been answered before. Just google "Ash Sprites" and you will find a few good ones. Make sure you check and see if you can use them, and then give credit.

                    First off, get some more posts bro, you've been here too long sending me emails and pms:p.

                    Second, I fixed your links in my quote.


                    Now, when I made Derpizard, I did palette changes by inserting the palette into the rom using NSE 2.X and then manually changing the pointers in a hex editor so I could do them all at once (I used the same palette for 90% of the images) on Ruby. My best bet is that you didn't do a compressed palette insertion.

                    However, you can also do it the way I did it. Restore the palette from a back-up or using APE if you can. Then, open your sprite in NSE 2.X and go into the File menu and click "insert". Then go and click "compressed" and then finally "palette". Then, search in the rom using a hex editor and look for the pointer to the data for the original palette. Then change that pointer to reflect the new palette you just inserted.

                      Hi there again everyone,
                      I'm back with another question, this time it's more of a problem I have with my edited FireRed ROM.
                      I've been editing for about 2 weeks now, and I'd been testing it out ocasionally on VBA just to make sure it was running correctly and displaying what I was editing.
                      Recently I came up with two errors that I can't solve on my own.

                      - the game resets when I bring up the menu and click on my character's name to see the ID/badges etc
                      - it also resets when I bring up the menu and click on POKÉDEX »»» (ANY OPTION) »»» (ANY POKÉMON) »»» CLICK 'A' TO SEE MORE DETAILS ON THE DESCRIPTION TEXT MENU

                      My guess for this to be happening is that I used Advance Text and it moved around some dialogues to different areas. Could it be that it somehow erased critical data to show those menus correctly?
                      Is there anything I can do to fix these errors?
                      Thank you guys!

                      When you re-point to offsets with no free space then yeah, you will get errors. you are overwriting the code, so obviously there's going to be errors!

                        Hi everyone. I asked if someone could help me on this thread about this a while ago, but nobody responded. Can someone tell me if I'm doing anything wrong trying to put my tile map(attached below) into my Ruby version intro? I followed the tutorial on inserting Ruby Title screen step by step, but it comes up all messed up. Can anybody help me please?

                          Yeah I guess that would be the case.
                          I'm wondering though, since Advance Text re-pointed some of the dialogues to different areas, is there a way for me to manually re-point those dialogues to their original areas and restore those overwritten areas to their original state?

                          Is there a tutorial that shows how to re-point? I don't even know where to start :s

I followed the tutorial on inserting Ruby Title screen step by step, but it comes up all messed up. Can anybody help me please?
                            Which tutorial exactly did you follow? There are a couple of them.

                              So I'm wondering. I am trying to add in a legendary, not add in a whole new pokemon but add in an event where you go up to say a Lugia sprite and it executes a batttle like Zapdos or Articuno. I want to also add in an event where you will be given an egg at the beginning of the game with no sort of feats needed. Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.

Then, open your sprite in NSE 2.X and go into the File menu and click "insert". Then go and click "compressed" and then finally "palette". Then, search in the rom using a hex editor and look for the pointer to the data for the original palette. Then change that pointer to reflect the new palette you just inserted.
                                    Okay got basicly everything covered but one essential part; the string can't be found in my rom. I'm using a XVI32 hex-editor, but never edited a rom using a hex-editor. Anyhow, when I search for the original palette pointer (in this case; E5A050) it won't be found in the rom (even when searching for text, hex or hex > text).

                                      These are all scripts, so go read Diegoisawesomes XSE tutorial and learn how to.

                                      Because you need to set the world map flags associated with those towns when entering them.

                                      Your problems lie in trying to use a brand new tileset and map. In your pics, it appeared that you just made your own tileset instead of editing the old one. That will not work with this tutorial since the bubbles that float on the screen are a part of the original tileset.

                                      Okay, I'm having serious trouble editing the Pokédex order in FireRed. I've, for example, edited the two bytes at 0x251FEE to 20 01 - so, in theory, Zigzagoon would be recorded at Number #001 in the Pokédex - and yet it just...isn't. I've tried editing the order completely and it had an effect on the dex's order but not as I wanted and then some Pokémon had the dex entries of others. That one tool by Gamer2020 is annoying to use and everytime I change on Pokémon's order I have to click Okay to like five different windows and errors.

                                          Hello,

                                          How can I change the 4 pokemons appearing in Ruby Intro?
                                          When there's a Sharpedo and a Duskull fighting Torchic and Mudkip.
                                          I would like to change them for other pokemons.

                                          I'm pretty sure it's not hard to do, maybe some hex editing, but I have no knowledge at all in this. I didn't find any tutorial about this so far, nor a device that allows us to do it in a simple way.

                                          My rom-hack is just for fun so changing this is not really important, but I would really appreciate if anyone who already did this or knows how to do could help me with this.

                                          Thanks o:
