    There is no software that can do that, you'll have to do it manually.

    You click the compile button (it looks like a gear)... But if the script is bigger than the original, you'd have to repoint it.

      But, when I click compile it just saves a text document with some random information.

      Edit: Never mind, I got it now. But how do I repoint to add more text?

      No... that's probably just the info-box telling you where everything was compiled to.

        Oh, uhm, quick question, my Pokedex is dead and my ROM dies when someone tries to evolve. Is there any way out except for restarting from a backup?

        Open your ROM and a free ROM in a Hex Editor and use the compare feature to see which bytes have been replaced. Continue replacing bytes with the ones from the free ROM until you've fixed your problem. Then, memorise your bytes and revert all changes in your ROM and only replace the problem bytes. Wallaa, problem fixed. By the way, this is a gruelling process and can take up to five hours per problem.

          Also is it true that Pokemon Emerald has less support for hacking than Ruby/FireRed? Just wondering.

              Transport it to a map that doesn't use it.

                      Would it be possible to create an entirely new move? For example, if I wanted to make a move that increased both defense stats and lowered both attack stats, how would I go about doing this?

                      FireRed (U) rom. Thanks guys!

                        Using ASM is the only way.

                          i have seen in a few hacks (Light Platinum for instance) that some tiles like the mart sign move.
                          how is this done exactly? i'm using firered.

                          ASM, but, I think Lu-Ho might've made a tool for it that he never released here. Google is your friend for looking for that.

                            Is it possible to completely re-implement HM08 Dive in Pokémon FireRed? I ask this because I plan to feature it heavily in the hack I'm designing.

                              Check this tutorial. But if you don't have any previous knowledge of ASM, you're likely to be confused.

                              I haven't tried it but I suppose you could take a look at this tutorial and try to either copy R/S/E's script or create one from scratch.

                              I can't remember off the top of my head but if you go to Professional Header View in AdvanceMap and study the values in the Map Header box, you'll eventually figure out which value controls what "header/section" a map goes under.

                                Unfortunately, scripting is most definitely not my forte. Thanks for answering my question, though!

                                  I just finished a special hack. You name your mother instead of your rival. Nothing else but it`s a holiday hack. Where would I post it? It
                                  s 100% finished but not big so I don`t know if it would be okay to post it in the Hacking Showcase.

                                    Hello, I'm sorry if I screwed up anything here with posting I'm new...:/

                                    I had a question with unLZ-gba and inserting trainer sprites.

                                    I have gone through many tutorial threads and tried them all out, however, when I go "in game" to look for the sprite change, it is the normal sprite and not the changed one. Many times, the new sprite will appear in unLZ-gba in the correct spot, but in game it is not changed. This also happens when I try and repoint the data. Even if unLZ.gba says it was successfully repointed, the sprite does not show up in game.

                                    Again, I'm sorry if I posted incorrectly. I'm trying to make a ROM hack for my boyfriend who loves pokemon, and am getting a little nervous that the sprites of his friends don't work It's the only thing that is not working in the hack

                                    Thank you.

                                      @HeatherLynn: It might be a logical error something. Did you change the trainer sprite of the trainer using a trainer editor of some sort?

                                        Ok, So I've just ripped all the Ruby tiles and put them in Firered. The first tileset worked. The second tileset has turned gibberish.
                                        Is there any reason for this?
                                        More importantly, can I fix it without going through and reconstructing every single tile?
