    How come I can't ride bike in maps that was inserted? Even when I set the Type in Advance Map as "Route"?

      Or if anybody could point me to a complete FR/LG/RSE soundfont that'd work too.


      Thanks in advance.
      Just bumping this up since I haven't seen it answered yet.

Now, I thought that I had messed something up, but it turns out that this is the case in a clean FR ROM as well. Is there a delimiter somewhere that I need to change? (e.g., Squirtle's dex entry says "TINY POKeMON" instead of "TINY TURTLE POKeMON.")

        2. Where is the information stored in the ROM for the order in the Pokedex search (i.e., A to Z, type, lightest, and smallest) modes?
        Please disregard the first question. A more careful search has led me to the answer. I'm still curious about number 2, though.

          That happens to me too. I guess you inserted a map?
          The game thought as it's a inside place. I don't know how to fix it.
          But running inside can be, just take the codes in tut via hex editor.

            Yeah, that's exactly what happened. It's kinda frustrating. I wonder is there a way to ride bike indoors.

              I notice whenever I play the Doom GBA rom it always looks blurry. How do I fix this?

                Have you already edited the ROM? I've learned that changing the vars above 0x40FF can create bad eggs.

                If you haven't modified the ROM yet, you may have just downloaded a bad ROM. Try redownloading from another site and see if it is still there?

                  I have edited the crap out of this rom. The clean unmodified version of this rom does not have this problem. Is there a list of variable ranges to avoid? I have used variables above 40FF.

                  FFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU I'm so sick of these tedious little bugs coming up.

                  I am using tileset 23 for Tileset 1 and tileset 24 for Tileset 2 for my pokemon ruby rom.
                  I have changed Palettes 0-6 to new palettes using AdvanceMap 1.92 since AdvanceMap 1.95 doesn't let you change the palettes at all if you put anything in Tileset 1 rather than tileset 0. So I spend like over 12 hours doing this new map and inserting a bunch of tiles into two custom tilesets and successfully changed the palettes and they look amazing. It's going to be a great map I say.
                  Then I open up the rom cus something was itching me to check.. and when I got to the city of course the blocks were all changed in tiles and colors... open up advancemap 1.95 and view the map.. all blocks still there but palettes messed up. It's only in 1.92 that everything looks fine and dandy. Talked to a fellow rom hacker and got this piece of advice

                  "Just copy and paste the raw data and throw some pointers around then reset the palette number in the tile editor tedious but easy"

                  Except I'm not exactly sure what he's saying and I don't know how to do that. EEEEEEK

                  If someone could me not lose 12+ hours of work it'd be nice! thanks in advance

                    Why do you care what it looks like in a buggy version of A-Map? Like seriously? That sounds like an A-Map bug to me, not an issue with the way you are doing things.

                    No I'll show you with images what I'm talking about.

                    I'm using AdvanceMap 1.92 for this map.

                    Here is the screenshot of what it looks like in the program:

                    im saying that i know in advancemap 1.95 that it won't let you change palettes if you use anything else for tileset 1 besides tileset 0 and maybe somehow thats linked with why it isn't working in game? cus 1.92 and right now it looks like how i wanted. just not in game.

                      OHHHH. I got you. Hmmm, seems kind of like the pointers aren't synced up. What I want you to do, is find the pointer it is loading for the palette in game using the palette viewer and APE. Then, search for it in the rom. Find it, write down it's location(IMPORTANTE), change it, load the map in both versions, and share the results.

                        http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=302347 is good documentation. Vars above 0x40FF are generally unsafe.

                          That was very helpful, however, for testing purposes I edited the warp out of the players room to lead to a Pokemon Center. When I look at the box it already has a bad egg in it. I changed the variable numbers, so that isn't the problem. This bad egg exists before a pokemon is even given... it exists before the player leaves his/her house.

                            Oh boy, that means that something is copying data into the PC boxes when it shouldn't be. Most likely, there is a bad dma pointer. So, when you say "I have edited the crap out of this rom." What do you mean? What tools did you use, how did you deal with data, did you attempt any ASM or Hex editing?

                              Well, I used jpan's firered hack, Advanced Map 1.95 and 1.92, advance trainer, icon editor, item manager, M4A build in Assembler (music assembly program), NSE, Overworld Editor Rebirth Edition, UNLZGBA, XSE. I use hex workshop. I have used a couple of Jpan's fixes, the run indoors, and one that I can't remember... but it is on the same page as the running indoors one.

                                Hi. Can someone tell me how to fix my problem;
                                When I save my map and inserted it on other maps, I can't run or use bike.
                                I tried change it to route/city/caves but I still can't. The game knows that
                                the map is in a inside house. I tried changing the codes to run indoors, but
                                regardless because I can't use bike. How do I fix this? That's right.

                                We had the same problem.

                                  How do I insert or edit a sprite? I know this question was probably already asked but I could not find how to get to the answered questions blog. I'm sorry if this is spamming you and I understand if you don't want to answer and delete this comment

                                    Insert sprite using the programs like NSE/UNZL-GBA/Pokepic or any sprite editor for roms.
                                    Editing the sprite using image editors like Paint or Photoshop. There are different kind
                                    of sprites like OW's for the small npc's. Sprites for Pokemon is battle, trainers, etc..
                                    As for my question above. Please answer it

                                      How do I make PokeMart catalogs display prices with more than 4 digits? I could've swore that I saw a post on how to do this, but I can't seem to find it.

                                      For reference, if an item costs more than $9999, its price is displayed as $????.

                                            There is a byte in the raw map data (not shown in the basic header in A-map, only the advanced) that controls this. There is a quick tutorial around here somewhere for it.

                                              Hi, I wanna know how did this happen?


                                              On the first screeny, I thought only one picture can be show at a time?
                                              Is that because of ASM to make it possible? I've asked before but I think
                                              the answer I got is only one picture can be shown on a pokepic command.
