    is already found in C: /Windows/System32. I tried like what you said a while back ago, and didn't work. Some programs need it to be found in the same folder, as it is.

        Oh, I didn't notice that it was .OCX... Though they should work IMO similarly, I reckon there was a command line part involved (I think it was something like "regsvr32 (something) comdlg32.ocx"). But in this case I believe now that just copying the file over is the better choice.

        EDIT: When it comes to my own question, I happened to solve it myself.

          Hello all!

          Actualy a simple question this time... Dose anyone know if its possable to use asm to make a 'call script' function in an item?

          I have been experementing with item hex editing but due to my abismal ASM skills I havent had a huge sucsess and it would be much easyer for me and likely anyone else who would like to do something like this if it was able to be shunted to a script to manage. I have tried simple pointers to scripts which cause the game to hang and I have also tryed useing script hex commands to program items but every time that happens then the game resets so I assume its not valid. (I know its not permitted to ask for scripts here but if anyone more capable than me could make an ASM script then translate it to hex I would be extreemly gratefull)

          Thanks for your time!

              I need help on changing the sprites of the 25 "empty slot" Pokémon in a Pokémon Emerald ROM. I was changing one of the Pokémon's "question mark" sprite into the sprite of a Ralts using Pokémon Editor Pro by directly copying the sprite offsets listed for Ralts into the "empty slot" Pokémon's sprite offset boxes. However, when viewed in-game, the "empty slot" Pokémon still appears as a question mark, but coloured differently than before. Are there any tips on what I can do to correctly change an "empty slot" Pokémon's sprite? Thanks.

              It means that the palette was changed but not the image. Make sure you copy and paste both in to the correct places.

                Sprite offset: D2DBC4
                Back sprite: D2DE1C
                Norm. Pallette: D2DDF4

                Icon Offset: D2EB60
                Icon Palette: Pal 2
                They are the same for both Ralts and the "empty slot", but the sprites are still different.

                They are the same for both Ralts and the "empty slot", but the sprites are still different. In fact, changing the "empty slot"'s sprite offset to ANYTHING still produces the question marks.
                Oh, its for Emerald. Yeah thats probably whats causing you trouble.

                In Emerald the Pokemon have animations which are located elsewhere on the rom. You'll have to edit it manually. That means finding Ralts animation as well. In the .ini file it says that the Animations are found at 3187084 (dec).

                  Is there a tool out/planned to make this easier? If not, is there a guide available to perform this action?

                      It's most likely a ROM that OWE cannot read.

                      With some ROM hacks (such as Liquid Ocean), the author purposely edits the codebase of the ROM so that it is only playable with an emulator, and not editable through AdvanceMap, OverworldEditorRE, etc.

                        Well, do you have the 'comctl32.ocx' file?

                          Any hint about the location of the tilemap for world maps (in FireRed)? I know already where the tileset is (offset 003F0580 / unLZ #911 w/ deep scan), but as opposed to the title screen images, the tilemap was not right after the tileset.

                          I systematically checked nearly 500 raw data files (I skipped sprites which actually are images, and also skipped junk chunks looking too large to be a correct raw) and none of them matched.

                          This question has not been answered yet.

                            Hi, my question involves switching animations for moves. I have FireRed 1.0 and would like to use the "Dragon Rage" animation with the move "Dragonbreath." I have hex editing software and all that but wouldn't know where to begin--is there a simple address that needs to be changed, and if so, what's that?

                              I have two problems/questions needing to be answered.

                              1. How (if it is possible) can you edit Emerald's sprites? (Not the OWs.)
                              2. How do I figure out the Hex numbers of all Pokemon's cries? (So I can edit the script and put in cries)

                              Thanks.

                              I systematically checked nearly 500 raw data files (I skipped sprites which actually are images, and also skipped junk chunks looking too large to be a correct raw) and none of them matched. :(

                              This question has not been answered yet.
                              If you know where the tileset is the tilemap is usually the one after it. If not zel has uploaded one in M_X's World Map tutorial thread.

                              No, the animation data pointers are not in the Attack Data table.

                              The only way I can think of doing it in an easy way is to give Dragonbreath all the properties of Dragon Rage and vice versa. Then you'll have swapped both attacks.

                              1. The same way you edit any sprite. Index it, load it in UNLZ, repoint and insert the image and pallete.
                              2. The cry numbers are the same as the Pokemon numbers.

                              EDIT: One more

                              You are trying to load an unsupported rom. Make sure that the rom has not been edited in anyway. If you can't figure it out yourself, reply with what rom it is that you are attempting to open.

                                Is it possible to make a character from one map move to another without a level script?

                                  How do I edit the tiles in my ROM? Does anyone know any premade ones? I see a lot of similar tiles throughout ROM hacks...

                                    You are referring to rom bases which can be found here and various other forums.
                                    Otherwise here is a good tutorial for inserting tiles yourself.

                                    I want to know how to.
                                    applymovement 0x[person1] [movement1]
                                    applymovement 0x[person2] [movement2]
                                    pausemove 0

                                    If you are using XSE it would be waitmovement not pausemove. The person who has the longest number of movements needs to be placed last. You can also put as many as you want.

                                      Thanks, so I think I'll be old school and use the old way.
                                      Where do you put that script though?
