    How do you move the flight spots, and where the town map thinks a place is e.g if i wanted the map to think pallet was in the seafoam islands and i wanted to fly there. And how do you edit map names?

      Hey guys, I was using unLZ to try to edit Wallace into Gary, I've managed to change the name, overworld sprite, pokemon, the only thing I've been having trouble with is changing the in-battle sprite, I changed the sprite to a Gary sprite, checked off "Export image" and "Export palette" Now in unLZ his palette looks perfectly fine, but all the other trainers in unLZ's palette is wrong and they all looked messed, also in the game itself the Gary sprite is messed up and it oddly messed up one other sprite, and literally only 1 other one, can someone help me please?

        I have a bit of an issue with PKSV. It used to show the drop-down menu when I was typing (which was really helpful); now after my computer came back from the shop, with a new hard drive, PKSV doesn't have that drop-down menu. I tried re-downloading PKSV, but to no avail. I hope the solution isn't to obvious because I feel I have searched the program for settings and found nothing. Please help.

          For a GBA game? You'd need to use an old version of AdvanceMap, like 1.92 -- but note that doing so will erase your settings for the new version!

            Has anyone ever done a complete balance fix to the original pair of games? I may be new but I didn't see it in the list: showthread.php?t=253946

            edit: bah can't link because I'm new (even though I passed 3 capta and have a gmail...)

              So, to summarise my questions:

              Can I modify the rom codes (in XSE) for these:

              1. Pokedex: Names, Order, get rid of some pokemon totally
              2. Types: Names, strength/weakness
              3. Abilities: Names, effect
              4. Moves: Names, effect

              Thank you.

                I don't think any of those can be edited with XSE in any way, shape, or form. XSE only does scripts (and technically string editing).

                  Is there any way to make certain pokemon banned in battle tower? (pokemon ruby)
                  I want to make dialga instead of remoraid but I think dialga won't be banned then...

                    I might as well throw this out here. I'm trying to find out how to change a few texts in FR:
                    • "Old man" in the "old man that catches a weedle" special
                    • "Bill" in "Bill's PC"
                    • The text where Oak teaches you about battling in your first rival battle (trainerbattle 0x9)
                    I assume there's byte editing involved in hex. If so, could anyone share the offsets? Thanks in advance.

                      These aren't all the offsets you'll need; the multichoice used by special 0x106 (to select what you wish to do with a PC) will also need to be modified.

                      Also, if you lengthen anything, then you may have to repoint these. In that case, you'll need to edit the PC script (0x081A6955) as well as pretty much every default script that uses the "givepokemon" command.

                      0x081A5CF1

                      Also, just as a bit of trivia, flag 0x834 determines whether or not "Someone" or "Bill" is used (0 = Someone, 1 = Bill).

                        Unfortunately after following four separate world map editing tutorials I am yet to get a working one.. THerefore I am curious to whether A) Someone would perhaps help me make one? (And be credited of course) or B) Do you think it's cheap to just blackout the map and have flying options only in the form of red dots? WIth no map at all.

                          I suppose so, though I haven't edited a multichoice before D:

                          I'm aware of that, I won't lengthen anything, I was talking about the same number of characters, just...different ones.

                          "What will the old man do?" is at 0x3fe6fa and "The old man used" is at 0x3fd65c.

                          Oak's battle tutorial texts start at 0x3fdae2. If you go to that address in a hex editor with a table file loaded, you'll see all of them (not just the first one). Reverse the addresses and do a hex search on them to find the pointers (I found a couple around 0xe84XX) if you need to repoint.

                              Yes.

                              On the other hand, if it were possible to black out the map at first and reveal explored areas (like fog of war in an RTS), then that'd be super uncheap. It'd be epic. But that'd take heavy ASM.

                                My problem is all the tutorials explain how to enter your map and your templates and tiles into the game but none explain -how- to make them.. Could someone perhaps recommend a guide?

                                          That mostly depends on what scripts from the original game you'll be keeping. If you're hacking FireRed, I have a list of almost every single script flag and variable in use by Game Freak's scripts. List here.

                                          I can tell you that regardless of what game you're modifying, there will be limits. Several flags (FR: 0x500 - 0x700) are reserved as trainer flags, and others are used as world map flags (FR: 0x890 - 0x8FD). In FR, flags above 0x8FF overlap other areas of RAM; the number may be different in other games, but a similar limitation will exist. There are numerous other flags that are checked or altered directly by the game engine.

                                          And if you're looking into safe flags, you should also look into safe variables. There are far fewer safe scripting variables than people realize. In one of JPAN's posts, he confirmed that variables 0x5EF4 - 0x7FFF overlap the RAM for PC Pokemon. My own research is incomplete but seems to indicate that variables 0x5084 and up are also unsafe. There are also several variables that are safe to read, but not to write, as the game uses them to store data; I've noted them in my list of all flags and vars.

                                          I think the best thing you'll be able to do is create a level script (of the "setmaptile" type in AMap) that runs "setmaptile" commands every time you enter the map. You can make such a script contingent on the value of a scripting variable, and then set that variable to that value when you first run "setmaptile".

                                              you know the animation where a black bird swoops down Like in ruby when you get the silphscope and he flies off how would you write or use this ?(and can it be used for FR?)
