For Emerald, is there anyway to assign individual cries to the 25 free Pokémon spaces? They currently play the Unown cry and whenever I assign a cry to two or more it becomes corrupt.

    Yes, but you have to repoint all of the data. That is what is causing your issues.

So, that is something to also look out for.
      Yes i'm using the right map. It's the only one I edited so far :p.

        A video would be nice. Use bandicam or something and show us what is in A-map and the nwhat it looks like in game.

        So how would I re point the data? The method I'm trying doesn't seem to be working but rather still using the same cries for the empty spaces.

          *facepalm* I figured out the problem... I was using a save state instead of starting from the beginning to test it out so it didn't remove the map scripts. Thanks everyone!

            Does anyone have a copy of the IPS for Wichu's Emerald decapitalization patch? The only link in existence is his link to 2Shared, which it seems is dead; I've looked, and it seems like no one else on the entirety of the internet has it hosted somewhere else.

But when Nick needed it most, it finished. Four years passed and Mike and Bryan created a new Avatar: Legend of Korra. Although the show itself is great, it has a long way to go before it can live up to the Last Airbender. But I believe Korra can save Nickelodeon.

              You do not need this Patch to Decapitalization. Only what you need is ITEM and Pokemon Editors. <For Pokemon i Preffer POKEMON EDITOR from GBA POKEMON EDITOR set. And rewrite names but without CAPS LOCK mode XD

                  Hi, when I use open script in advance map, the script is always different from the one I made from before. Is there anyway to convert it back to normal or will I need to save all my scripts for future editing?

                  Thanks in advance =)

                      I'm not sure if XSE has this function, but in pksv you can save your script so you can edit it later. You can also keep a text document or something.

                        I appreciate it, but that looks like the Fire Red one. I'm looking for the one he made for Emerald.

                        EDIT: Nevermind, I found an Emerald decap done by dkp in the Rom Hacking Resources thread.

                        I know I could and it wouldn't be difficult, but it would be incredibly time consuming. There's no need to reinvent the wheel unless it's necessary. There's a lot of text that would need decapping, and if someone else has done it before it would be a better time saver to use that as a base.

                            Question: are there any scripting tutorials for DS PKMN games? Preferably for HG/SS or B/W. :3
                            I've been searching for hours yesterday, but I only found one, which was to make simple text speeches. :/

                              What exactly are you doing right now? Before inserting new cries (which can be a pain) have you first tried swapping pointers with already existing cries to see what happens?

                                  I know that there are some other DS trainer editors lying around in the Toolbox sub-forum, but I don't think that they can edit all of the trainers, just Gym Leaders and people like that. Maybe if you dig deep enough you might be able to find one. You could also hex edit the trainers, which wouldn't be too hard if you knew the offsets.

                                  Skip interval would be how many bytes separate each search. You can just leave it at 16, it doesn't really matter as long as you click Search instead of Find Next.
                                  Spoiler:

                                  Notice how each offset is 20 bytes higher than the previous.

                                      Does anyone know where in Emerald the data for the experience formula is located? I'd like to try implementing something like the Gen V exp gain system in Gen III, so I want to play around with the formula a bit.

Only Avatar, the best of the new Nicktoons could save them. But when Nick needed it most, it finished. Four years passed and Mike and Bryan created a new Avatar: Legend of Korra. Although the show itself is great, it has a long way to go before it can live up to the Last Airbender. But I believe Korra can save Nickelodeon.

                                      So, I'm scripting with XSE, and whenever I edit my scripts it forces me to use a new offset... I've made two scripts starting from 800000 and now I'm already on 800800 because it uses the next offset every time I compile. Is there a way to recompile over an offset I've already used?

                                        Is it possible to tell if two ips patches will work on the same rom and if it will overwrite data or not?

                                        miksy91 gave me a method of figuring out the contents of a patch through a hex editor.
                                        Maybe it'll be useful for your purposes as well. :3

The bytes in offsets from 0x5 to 0x7 determine the first offset in the "unmodified" rom to write new data to. If that offset is smaller than 6B 09 F8 (blank data FF FF FF... starts here in Ruby (U) rom), go to that offset with a hex editor (if it is for example 0A C7 23 = 0xAC723) and see what's written in there in "umodified" and "modified (buggy)" rom. You can easily change that data back to normal. After the 3-byte offset (in ips-file), there are always two bytes telling how many bytes to re-write in that offset and after these two bytes, the bytes to write there.

                                          Do you know ASM? Cause it isn't just byte editing. It is an actual routine. Changing it will be much harder than finding it, so if you can't find it by yourself, good luck man.

                                          If you are recompiling the script over and over, put #clean above #Dynamic. It will erase the last compiled script. This only works if you didn't close XSE in between, I think.

                                          Example:

                                          Code:
                                          #Clean
                                          #dynamic 0x800000
                                          lock
                                          faceplayer
                                          msgbox @01 0x2
                                          release
                                          end
                                          
                                          #org @01
                                          = Test.

                                          Besides the method posted by DJG, you could also (if it is two small patches), patch two different roms and compare the data using analysis in HxD and do stuff like that. I would stay away from ips patching multiple times, unless the author tells you explicitly what was changed and where it was placed, like I did with JPAN's save block recycler and Driver's/my battle bg swapper.
