    I have a problem with giving a sprite to the 25 empty slots in >>EMERALD<<...
    The sprite simply doesn't work for me...
    I still encounter a "??" sprite called Togekiss (the one i'm trying to insert).
    This is what I do:
    First I have my Togekiss sprite.
    It has 64x64 pixels and 16 colours.
    Next, I go to unLZ, import the sprite, and click on "Write to Rom".
    I only tick the "Image" box, since that's what i'm only caring for now.
    I enter my empty offset in the "image offset" box in unZL (The offset is 00E5D080).
    Now i click on "OK" in unLZ.
    Next I open my rom in PEP, i go to the first questionmark (called Togekiss).
    Now I enter E5D080 in the top box, called "Sprite offset".
    I hit the save button, open the rom, but I still encounter a Togekiss with the ?? sprite.
    What am I doing wrong!?Does Sprite inserting works differend in Emerald or something?
    I know Emerald has bigger sprites, but I've tried inserting 128x64 and 64x128 sprites too.
    It just doesn't seem to do anything.


    Secondly,
    Is there a way to edit the Trainer Battle intro's?
    I want to change the big "Team Aqua Logo" that you see when a battle starts, to a "Team Rocket Logo".
    The pictures aren't in unLZ, right? (I've searched through, but I'm not sure if it's L77T compressed (or something)).


    And lastly (an easier one): How does a "map Script" work in advancemap?
    I've tried just putting a regular script at the offset, and then experiment around with the Script Type (like 03 on entering map/menu close and all those things), but the screen just goes black, or nothing happens at all.
    How can I, lets say, make the player jump as soon as he enters the map?

    Thanks in advance!

      Basically, I'm wondering how you customize or add new (for lack of a better word) objects into the hack. I know there isn't a "tell-all" solution for this, but if I could know how to make multi-choice menus (or a work around, at least), I would be much obliged.

      I have many other questions, but that is the most pressing for me at the moment.
      I could really use some help here...

        where in the hex do you have to go to edit the size? My friend cant find it.

          Could someone post a STEP-BY-STEP tutorial to put wild pokemon data back in the
          Safari Zone in Pokemon Gold/Silver? (preferably in Score_Under's PKSV)

          Thanks!

            A map script is a Level script. The reason why it's not working is because you have to add setvar to the end of the script. Make sure to use a free variable, though.

                It probably can’t be done in PKSV, because PKSV is a scripting tool and not a wild Pokémon editor. Try opening the ROM in a hex editor.

                Starting at offset 0x02AB35 is a list of wild Pokémon and their locations, in the following format:
                [2‐byte map number]
                [wild Pokémon ratio morn][wild Pokémon ratio day][wild Pokémon ratio nite]
                [level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species] (morn)
                [level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species] (day)
                [level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species][level][species] (nite)

                The list continues this way until you reach a FF for the first byte, which signifies the end of the list.

                So replacing a two‐byte map number with the Safari Zone’s map number (0350 in Gold) should make wild Pokémon appear in that map. If you don’t want to overwrite one location you can always repoint the list.

                  Ok, so I'm trying to edit the title screen of pokemon firered.
                  I'm replacing the Charizard with an image within the correct dimensions.
                  After tilemapping and doing everything CORRECTLY:
                  I needed to change the palette, because instead of having proper colors(black and red), it was yellow and white. Finally, in the finishing product after using APE, it becomes invisible.
                  I need help, because I don't know what went wrong.

                    This is probably a noob-ish question, but how do you know how many bytes does a script need?

                    My way to know how many bytes the script needs is if you save it either as an rbc file or just a plain txt file.
                    You can view it's properties and you can see the size.

                      It's THAT simple?
                      Now I'll be making scripts. Imagine: Watermelon scripting. Cool, huh? (joke)

                      I have a quick question that hopefully someone can help me with:

                      My hack is set in the United States, and I'd really like the prices of items, prize money, etc to reflect the American dollar rather than the Japanese yen (for example, Pokeballs costing 2 dollars rather than 200 "yen"). Now, changing the prices of items is easy enough, but my question concerns how to change the amout of money Trainers give out when you defeat them. Is there any way to change or edit this amount so that, say, your average Bug Catcher will give you only 2 dollars and, say, a Lady will reward you with a cool 20 bucks?

                      Edit to add: Is it also possible to alter the amount of money you start the game with? (This is a Ruby hack, for reference )

                      use HackMew's new tool called Advance Trainer.
                      It can be found in the Toolbox section.

                        I hope someone can help me out here.

                        As far as I can tell, I haven't done anything out of the ordinary (I don't use advance text or anything like that), but out of nowhere, for some reason, when the game displays an apostrophe or a quotation mark in a message box, a weird little "phantom" comma appears under it. Anyone know how to fix or get rid of this?

                          I hadn't done much (some text, sprite, and attack editing) but due to that fact I just started it over. I was only like 4 hours work anyway. So problem solved

                          Well, you are going to have to edit the PokeYen Symbol in the game.

                          It can be found somewhere in the rom using Tile Molester or TLP. or another tile editing program... but you'll have to find that yourself...

                          Go in, find the $ symbol, and then copy it, then just paste it over the PokeYen sign.
                          PokeYen is a term used by HackMew to call the P shaped money symbol in pokemon games, I call it that too since it makes sense...

                            Unfortunately, you cant put any MP3's in Pokemon games... all pokemon games use MIDI songs, converted into .s files, in order to play them...

                              Well, it wouldn't matter, even if you could convert the song, because the song uses the incorrect instrument groups...
                              You might want to look in the Documents And Tutorials section for a music editing tutorial...

                                I searched the entire forums, and didn't find a single answer: How can I, or what tool do I use to, extend a GBA ROM? Whenever I go to insert a sprite with UNZLgba, it says that is is too big. So I replace the image offset with 00800000. Of course, I cannot use that again. (I tried, and whenever i got to the part where the image would be, the game freezes) I used HackMew's Free Space Finder, bu it doe the same thing. Is there a way, or a program, to extend the dataspace of a gba rom? (I am trying to Hack Pokemon LG)

                                  as for the rest idk how to explain it so maybe someone else can...

                                    Extremely complicated question (I think):
                                    How can I expand the amount of icon palettes in Pokemon Fire Red? I want to make it so that each pokemon has its own little palette so that I can truly change the icons. If I cannot do this, can someone please point me towards another way to take an actual rom (NOT Poccils essentials) and change the icon without the aid of Icon ed?

                                    Heres a picture:

                                    Instead of editing it, I'm now asking if there is a way to expand the amount of palettes from the 3 that come in game, to more like 150.

                                    P.S. Please answer this I really need to know so that my hack may progress!

                                      You can view it's properties and you can see the size.
                                      That would be the size of the file, yes? How is that useful when what you really want is the size in bytes of the compiled script? Or am I misinterpreting something?
