I've got the latest PPRE, editor.exe (Kiwi.ds), and BTX Editor.
I've started to change the overworlds in a HeartGold ROM and everything's been working fine (Walking, running & bicycle).

What I'm inquiring about is how to do the following.
- Edit mugshots.
- Edit trainer sprites.
- Edit trainer's Pokemon.
- Edit the protagonist's back sprite.

And does anyone know the addresses for all of the protagonist's overworlds?
I know the following:
Walking & Running: 69
Bicycle: 171
Surfing: 173

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks, Greg.

Oh, it's just that you said "97 - Needs Editing" in your earlier post.
And, don't worry. Thanks for you help!

EDIT:
I need the addresses for the following overworlds:

Wait, you told me the address for the Pokethlon sprites, it's 99.

I just need the addresses for the ones in the pic (excluding Pokethlon)
And I need the bronze Pokethlon

89 = Using the Pokecenter
97 = Using the Pokecenter (Team Rocket)

But BTX editor won't let me open them?


@Necron N.N
I'm having trouble using that program though.. I'll keep trying.


EDIT:

I've put together the overworlds for both outfits, but I don't know how to get them into the game.
The only overworlds I need to replace are:
Both the Pokecenters and using a HM (which I can't find)

Well, if you have trouble with any sprite, just send me a PM and I can replace it.
I need to replace the overworlds for when the character uses the Pokemon Center
Apparently they are (using BTX editor - in root/a/0/8/1):
89 = Using the Pokecenter
97 = Using the Pokecenter (Team Rocket)
But when I try to open the .BTX files, BTX Editor crashes.
What I need help with is applying the overworlds of Red (normal and in Team Rocket's disguise) to the following ROM:
(EDIT: I'm having troubles uploading the ROM)

Would you mind guiding me on how you would go about doing what I requested?

Not necessary to upload the rom. I don't do this with the BTX editor (and apparently it doesn't work properly) I prefer the method I told you earlier. Send me the edited archive in root/a/0/8/1 and I will work on this.

Here's the "1" file (root/a/0/8/1)
http://www.mediafire.com/?d029q6ejbx5qelc

It's one from a HeartGold ROM, I've edited the overworlds of (and working fine):
- Walking
- Running
- Bicycle
- Fishing
- Surfing
- Climbing?
- Apricorns
- Saving
- Pokethlon
- Walking - Team Rocket
- Running - Team Rocket
- Saving - Team Rocket

The overworlds work perfectly, thank you so much!

Would you mind doing the same for when the player uses a Pokemon? (using the 1 you used)

EDIT: Poketex keeps freezing for me.
I select the ROM, then I pick one of the things in the dropbox and then, bam, freeze.

Make sure you have extracted the "1" file and renamed to 1.nds
And about the HM sprites, I couldn't find them

I will ask the guy who find the values to post another list with those values.

Ugh, I still don't know how to use PokeTEX, I tried following the tutorial in Yellow's thread, but nothing works.
I select the rom (.nds file) then I pick one of the options in the drop-down box and then the overworlds/image that should appear, doesnt.

Do you know how to edit the trainer sprites and back sprites?

I think you can use PokeDSPic (don't know if it works with HGSS, check the other forum)
And for PokeTEX, I think you need to use the file with the backsprites in the same manner as the "1" file (but you need other offsets, the ones in the "list.txt" will only work with the "1" file)

I've been away from the computer for a while now, here's my progress:

- I've replaced all of the overworlds of Ethan except for the HM ones
- Replaced the overworld of Red atop Mt. Silver with someone else
- Replaced Red's team

What I still need to do:

- Replace the trainer sprite of Red
- Change the name of "PKMN Trainer Red"
- Change the back sprites
- Change the mugshots
- Change the trainer sprite on the trainer card
