    Okay, then I will give you my speech:

    LATEST VERSION != STABLE VERSION

    1.95 is an unfinished, open beta. It has bugs. It has issues. It says that right on the download page.

    1.92 is a stable version with only one or two bugs that never cause too many issues. It also can do almost everything 1.95 can. 1.95 has only 3 new features: tileset adding (which can be done by hand), bucket fill (which, if you are using, your maps will be boring), and a "replace all of same type" bucket fill (only useful feature). Just use 1.92.

      I will tell you why 1.92 sucks sometimes:

      >saving tilesets as independend bitmap (.dib), sucks to open with paint.
      >palettes are not RGB but RBG which can **** up tileset-porting.
      >levelscripts on more than one map can bug by having same variable and script-offset.
      >No "Fill" or "Magic wand" function

      I suggest you to use the different versions, depending on what you want to do.

          I'm a bit lost on my Patinum translation/minor hacking , someone could help me please?
          For the charcater names I find some on the text file I got with TheNewPokeText (Pl_msg.narc) and I think isn't all there, Like for Cynthia and Cyrus to show in battle as example, the sabe with some trainer classes, I found a few but not all of them are there, maybe they are on another file, not on the Pl_msg.narc?(And about the msg.narc that are text from D/P, the platinum make any use of this file or is just a leftover?)

          Another idea is for an extra on the translation, but could be usefull for someone that want to play the platinum nowadays: I want to hide some of the event key itens, for the darkrai event, shaymin event and and stufs, as example, I want to hide the Oak's letter on a corner in the Rowan's laboratory, if the player go and press A, will find the item there, just a example of what I want to do, locating it as a common item in a pokeball too

              I know I saw them here recently but for the life of me, I can't seem to find the offsets to the mom and pokecenter script that activate when the player's pokemon faint. Can anybody remind me what they are?

                hi ive been searching everywhere for this but i have a few questions

                1 is there a way to edit the new game intro where prof birch tells you about your adventure and how you moved to littleroot town

                2.is there a way to edit the script that is used when you leave the truck where your mom tells you about the town and makes you go to your room and set the clock and all that i clicked the sprite of mom at the door but it doesnt mention that just about getting a pokemon from birch and getting the running shoes(cuz if im gonna have a diff map im starting in i dont want mom to tell me about riding in the truck)

                3. is there a way to change the map you start in instead of the truck( yes i ahve the starting map chooser but what i mean is can i change the map without it affecting the script

                4. also i noticed that after extensively modifying my pokemon hack rom the music in the background changes slightly like a beep instead of another instrument is this fixable?

                also if you can pm me your answers i very seldom post in threads and when i do i tend to forget so if you could thanks in advance

                  1. Probably easiest way is using the A-text tool.
                  2. Of course. Use XSE and take a look at diegoisawesome's scripting tutorial. Scripting is used to make events come to life inside of games. Without it, you just have maps.
                  3. I'm not qualified to answer this
                  4. Or this.

                    1) A-text, hex editor, XSE. Your pick.

                    2) It is in the header for that map. Those types of scripts are called "level scirpts" or "map scripts" and tend to run when you enter or warp into a map. You should read the level scripting tutorial here.

                    3) Yes. You need to use a combination of SMCA (Start Map Chooser Advance) and Truck Remover (to remove the truck moving animation at the beginning).

                    4) I know nothing of music hacking.

                      my reply to your answers,
                      1. i know what to use just not the offset of the script /text

                      2. i opened the script for the map and it does tell how the event is started by moving into the map itself but it doesnt show any actual text unless its in an offset not used in the map itself

                      3. same as above it doesnt affect the script to start in another map but it makes it awkward

                      4. it has nothing to do with modifying the music its just that when you use advance map to edit a lot of things or use multiple tools the music sounds out of tune of course changing the music for a certain area while not considred music hacking might also be the cause as ive used many different themes for diff areas

                      and one extra question

                      5. is it possible to edit an item to make it open up the pc just an idea

                        It's most likely because you overwrote 00 bytes where the voicegroups are located. I'm assuming that you're hacking Emerald, so be sure to use FF bytes for free space. It is fixable but you will have to erase data that you placed in the 0x600000s. Open up a clean Emerald ROM in a hex editor and copy the data from 0x600000-0x6FFFFF and paste write it in your modified Emerald ROM at 0x600000.

                          I've seen that before and it didn't help that much. I have a problem with my games. When I got them in VBA and saved then came back to play it it was very glitchy and slow. How do I get that to stop happening? I put it on Flash 128K. Can someone here help me with that and please explain patching files because I heard that you need to do that for some hacks. Thanks.

                            I've seen that before and it didn't help that much. I have a problem with my games. When I got them in VBA and saved then came back to play it it was very glitchy and slow. How do I get that to stop happening? I put it on Flash 128K. Can someone here help me with that and please explain patching files because I heard that you need to do that for some hacks. Thanks.
                            You need to download a program called Lunar IPS and a clean firered ROM (or whatever the base ROM is for whatever you want to play), along with the .ips file for your hack. Open up Lunar IPS and select "Apply IPS Patch". select your IPS file, then your ROM. Your ROM is now patched.

                            I'm not sure what you mean about saving though, that shouldn't be happening. Are you using save states or the ingame save feature?

                              I am using in game save. What should I be using? And do I need to unzip files? Do you do that by extracting them?

                              I have a problem with my games. When I got them in VBA and saved then came back to play it it was very glitchy and slow. The music was messed up too and it was going slowly when it worked fine on the first go. I also do not see the saved file on the game but the same problem happens. How do I get that to stop happening? I put it on Flash 128K. How do you save on them? I am using in game save. What should I be using? And do I need to unzip files? Do you do that by extracting them? Please help, I will be extremely greatful if you do. I am a beginner in this so please explain everything the best you can. Thank you.

                              This is my VBA settings to save in-game in any ROMs.

                                Both of your Pokemon need the same growth rate.

                                The growth rates are probably different.

                                    Use the NamelessSpriteEditor (short: NSE).
                                    Its an overworld-sprite.

                                        But don't forget that the palette of the surf-sprite is equal with the hiro-palette!
