    Hi. I haven't been able to contact the guy who made the list. But I remembered something. To change the trainer sprites/bakcsprites/mugshots (not sure this one) you need to use PokeDSPicPlatinum. I attach the utilities, the number files and NARCExplorer to extract narc files (same as NitroExplorer). You need to change the pallet in the file [pallets], but sorry, I don't know how to do it, maybe you should ask in projectpokemon forums.

    Ugh, I feel like such a noob.
    I have no idea how to use those programs. WHAT DO I DO?!

    Hi, just found something. While doing some hex checking to the 1 file, I found that the HM sprite are not in this file (that's why my list.txt didn't had the values, they didn't exist in that file), so, we will just figure it out in where file is. Probably, in some "overworld animation". I can remember I saw long time ago a topic where many files of HGSS had the number (root/etc/etc...) and what it had inside, it was for hacking purposes. I'm searching for the topic.

    BTW, I could check all the sprites using crystaltile2 (man, I LOVE this program)

    For the other things, I'm beginning to use a little PokeDSPicPlatinum, so wait a little and I'll have some sprites changed [​IMG]

    Oh, thanks! I really appreciate all the help you're giving, I really do [​IMG]
    It's just that I have no clue when it comes to hacking or whatever, just really good with pixel art & sprites.

    I really don't know anything in hacking, I'm just too curious =P
    And, with many tutorials out there, I can do something. I'll be working on this!

    So how has the Kanto remake coming? I like the Red sprites, but his eyes are too shady.

    The sprites were made from the ingame sprite, that's why his eyes are like that.

    What programs are you using to edit the rom for HG/SS?

    Hey Necron,

    Sorry for the disappearance, I've been busy with school.
    Have you had any progress with the hack?

    I still need to edit the following:
    - 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 (Not really necessary)

    Hi, sorry, I've been busy with my things too (but after the 14th I'll be free). I have the programs but I haven't had the time to do some testings and changes. Expect news in a few days.

    Umm so is this going to be turned into a full blown hack or just a small project to get Red changed into the player??
