    Hi, I'm looking to remove the starting copyright and title screen in Pokemon platinum; or at least tell the game to skip it and instead immediately start up with the blue continue/new game/option screen.

    I'm trying to speed up the time it takes to start the game. The topics on this forum only go as far as editing the title screen.

    I'm annoyed with unLZ.GBA right now. You know when it aborts your changes because the size is too big. Well, the little three digit code that pops up is the amount of bytes needed in hex, right? So, in FSF, I converted it to the DEC equivalent and searched for an offset with enough free space. I replace the image offset with my new offset and click Write to ROM. I think that the image has changed, but when I go off of the page with the image on, and then return to it again, it is still in it's original form, as if I had done nothing. The offset is also the original offset. It's happened to me with at least seven different images, but it only happens if the size is greater than before.

    I've tried multiple times to solve this problem, but failed everytime. It happens on every ROM I try, clean or not. Help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I'm working on a Pokemon hack, and I need one simple question answered, that I haven't found asked anywhere else before.
    So, when I edit the cry of a Pokemon in PokeCry GUI, I have no idea how to do it, so I click the "..." button at the top-right, to load the Ruby ROMfile, then I load the WAV file, and this is the bit I need help with. What am I supposed to click? What I've been doing is pressing "Check Rom," then "Repoint," and all the way through until I get to "Dump". I load my ROM up in VBA, and the screen's just all white. I've got a backup ROM, but can someone help me here?
    That tool is really difficult to master, and it's not a safe tool for hacking, for it may cause glitches in your game.

    delete the file with the .spr extension file in the same folder where your ROM is located. that way, you can see your new sprites in Unlz-GBA... Though they are no longer together with the other old sprites...

    Also, I think if you search for free offsets manually with hex, you'll get a higher success rate.

    But if you wish to use FSF, then you can ask HackMew on how to search for free space properly.

    Also, you should receive a pop-up that the new sprite has been repointed successfully if you gave unlz a new offset for it to repoint the new image.

      So, um, what do I do then? I have a custom Pokemon that is ESSENTIAL for this game. If I can't edit the cry, is there some way I can swap it with another Pokemon's? I don't want to write this one over an existing Pokemon in unLZ, so I've got it on a blank space. How can I give it a certain cry?

      Also, do I have to use hex codes for the "ID" area in PokeCry? Or just the Pokemon's Pokedex number? Because I've tried both of them, and neither worked.

        It isn't recommended to change the cry. Ask HackMew for help, as he gave me advice about Pokecry (even though he wasn't the creator), but trust me, it is better to wait for a better tool.

            This sounds very noobish, but in a hack of Pokemon Fire-Red, if its not a First Generation Pokemon, it wont evolve, so is there any way to edit the game to make it so you have the National Dex earlier on than after defeating the Elite Four.
            I've seen it done in some games, but finding out how to do it would be very helpful, thanks.

              Special 0x81F or something. Triggers your national dex, just look it up in Oak's script.

              How would you release a Pokemon from your party?
              Thanks

                3. You can use a tool called Lunar IPS (LIPS). It both patches and creates patches. To put it up for download, you can use a sharing site like MediaFire or SendSpace, or you can attach it to one of your posts.
                EDIT: And is there a tool to edit the title screen in fire red?


                And on number 2 i meant before you see oak the bit where theres a pikachu in tp corner

                  You can get that from Advanced Text as well. Click on the search button and type in the first few words of the intro.

                  Push the 'Add To INI' button and give it a name and choose a section. Go to the corresponding section and edit away.

                      Well, what exactly did you do? If you did it "completely right", as you said, then it should have worked. :/
                      Please, explain a bit more.

                      Okay, then, I'll tell you to read someone's tutorial that they've written here on the forums. Honestly, no one's going to write a script for you, unless they're on your team. Seriously, writing a simple script such as a Gym battle shouldn't be that hard.

                      Uh, that's what XSE is for. And that's what all of the XSE tutorials are for. Go read up on a couple of those.

                      it screwed up,i already pallet edited it.
                      Maybe the tilemap is too big?
                      Ah, no, I know what you did. I am assuming you inserted it into the Charizard? The only thing that you actually did was insert the Ho-oh image. You also have to put in the raw. However, unlike what a lot of people think, the next image is the raw. At the Charizard, click on the Next Image (or whatever it's called). It shouldn't look like a Charizard at all. Next, click "Dump Raw". Sorry, but you'll have to re-do the tilemap; just open NTME and do it like you did before (except load whatever you dumped as the raw first as the tilemap). Now, when you're finished with that, re-save the tilemap, and load that raw into where you dumped the first one. That should fix your problem. :3

                      Is it possible to, say, make the titlescreen Pokémon's tileset bigger and it still work if I repointed it?
                      And yes, I do know that the RAW would have to be edited.

                        Well, I believe so. I inserted a whole background in the place of the Pokémon, so it should work.

                        If you don't mind, I'd like to link you to this post that I made.
                        It should have enough detail.

                          I'm having trouble with XSE...
                          I opened up my rom and loaded a script. I made the changes I wanted. I tried to save but it asked me to save not onto the rom but as an .rbc file. I don't want that!! How can I open up a script on a rom and save it back on directly?

                          Yeah. Well, you see, you can't just simply save it back to the ROM. You have to compile it into the ROM to get it to work. Saving it as an RBC file basically just saves the script you wrote to your computer. To put it in, you'll have to use the Batch Compiler on the Tools menu.
