          Well, I can try to help out with Advance Text. I've only used it with Sapphire, though, but I'm guessing it's the same deal for Fire Red. I posted this a few pages back:


          Quote:
          -Open up Advance Text.
          -Load the Rom.
          -Select "Search". This is where you enter a keyword or a phrase. For example, if you enter "POKéMON", Advance Text will search all text in the Rom for anything that contains "POKéMON". If you check the box underneath the search windows, the results of the search will contain the entire dialogue message. Otherwise, the results will show the dialogue message beginning from the word you searched.
          -If you want to see more results containing the keyword(s), click the "Resume" button.
          -Once you've found the text you want to edit, click the "Write to INI" button. A window will come up asking you to enter a section name and a text name. The section name is sort of like a folder, while the text name is like a file. Suppose you were editing a bunch of messages displayed on signs. You might want to call the section name "signs" and the text name something like "sign1". If you decide to search for more text messages from signs, you can save all these text messages into the "signs" section name.
          -After you've done this, click "Write to INI".
          -You can then close down the Search screen if you don't want to search for any more stuff at the moment. Out in the main Advance Text program, there are 2 large windows. The window on the left has all the section names. If you select one of these, you can see what text messages are saved in that section. Click one of those text messages to have it appear in the window on the right. Then you can edit it all you want. Try to keep it the same length of characters as it originally was. It can be shorter if you want, but things get kind of difficult if it's longer.
          -When you've finished editing, click the "Save Text" button to save the text to the Rom. It's possible to save text messages that are longer than the original messages, but it has to re-point the text. This usually works, but I've had it fail once for me before when attempting to repoint.

          Oh... one more thing. If you're typing text in the text-editing window and you don't press Enter to start new lines, it's going to come out a big mess when you play the Rom. What I do is press Enter to start a new line when the text gets about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way across the text-editing window. That'll bring the text onto a new line in the Rom. It has to fit within the dialogue boxes in the actual game.
          And I just want to emphasize the text I have in bold. It's VERY risky to try and save text messages that are longer than the originals because you don't really know where they're going to repoint. I once edited a trainer's dialogue, made it longer than the original, and saved it, and it ended up being repointed right into the middle of one of Professor Birch's speeches. xD I had to restart using a clean rom and a new INI. Needless to say, I kept all dialogue within the boundaries from that point on.

              in the lg/fr games, the intro sprites of the hero, heroine, prof and rival are screwed up in unlz (the colors since it seems they have two palletes i'm guessing)
              how can i go about editing them?

                Thats because it fills up free space you can go beond by making the space.

                  When I change my sign post message I use this code:

                  #ORG $showtext 0
                  lock
                  faceplayer
                  msgbox $sign
                  boxset 0x06
                  release
                  end

                  #ORG $sign 1
                  =SNOWY VILLA\lWhere it snows 24/7!

                  It works...but when I add another script just like it for another person, it says the text I wrote .. then all these weird letters ?

                  and.. how do you change your character player?

                      I don't know why PokéScript made weird letters appear instead of the text, maybe it replaced something and the text wasn't changed.

                      To change the characters in the game you need Overworld Editor for the overworlds and unLZ GBA for the battle sprites.

                        I was just checking the text-table converter and......

                        YAAY! I JUST DID MY FIRST DEBUG!

                        I was looking in the text-table and I found something. The line to translate the ! character is wrong. I've just posted the correct command database so either re-download or got into the file c:/pokewitch/pkmadv/texttable.psh

                        and change the following line:
                        #addtext #21 #ab

                        to
                        #addtext ! #AB

                        This mistake meant the ! character was causing the #FF (End of line) character to not be processed!
                        PS: I'll let Aunty Witch know about this too so she can update her version of the file.

                          Thanks Rin for finding that bug but it wont solve his problem...

                          It's a software bug in Bufrite's search proceedure.
                          Text is terminated with an 0xFF character and the searcher is looking for chunks of 0xFF... Means sometimes it's over-writing the text terminator.. I will fix it now, keep an eye out for the update.

                            I was triying to make a trainer with PET but I couldn't find it in PET.

                            It said something like this: The trainer has been added on offset 990000 and with the number -1.
                            But I don't get it "

                            Which ROM are you using?
                            And it means that the new trainer was added in empty space of the ROM (offset 990000) and you can edit it.

                              Yeah but the -1 isn't in PET so how can I edit?

                              You can use a hex editor. Open your ROM and go to the trainer's offset (990000). Look at this for help on how to edit trainers with a hex editor.

                              Okay, for some reason, I've got a bad warp. It worked before, it would warp me outside of the house, but it doesn't that that anymore. But something even weirder happened, once you warp out of the house, the screen just goes black, and never actually warps you to where it should.

                              What happened? Is there anything I can do to fix it, or do I just have to take out that warp, and re-put it in?

                              You actually start warping, but as soon as you enter the map the screen goes black, as if it doesn't even load.

                              Try going to that map normally. If the screen is black again then the map is corrupted.

                              Corrupted you say? Okay, I'll try it normally, but I have a feeling you're right with the whole corrupted.

                              Thanks Christos!

                                I know this seems like a bit of a long shot since lots of people have this problem, but does anybody know how to change the cry of Charizard on the opening of Fire Red?

                                Thanks!
