Hex Editor Issue?
« on: October 12, 2014, 06:08:54 pm »

See link for pics.

I've read the all of the guides and I'm sure its something VERY simple that I'm missing,
but When I go into hex editor, it says it can't find the string of code that I'm inputing directly from Memory Viewer in my Visual Boy Advance. I've already done quite a few edits, but some specific colors, Hex Editor just can't find (it finds the initial color I'm looking for (007C) but once I enter a few more colors, it says it can't find it).
I'm using Palette Viewer, OAM Viewer and Memory Viewer in my VBA to find the specific colors/adresses ect., loading the right ROM, using HxD Hex Editor and APE Utilities.
I hope the pics help. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I edited Maxim and had no trouble.

EDIT: I made a backup of my rom and just to see what would happen, I "replaced all" of the 007C's with the color I wanted. Boy, did that screw the game up...I knew it would, but the kicker is THE BLUE OUTLINE ON THE SPRITE WAS STILL BLUE! Makes you want to tear your hair out....
