Okay so my request is (theoretically) simple. I'm trying to edit the player char sprites in Soul Silver. I know there is an action replay code to use the female protag from Platinum, and I wanted to make it a patch with it as a permanent change if possible. Thanks in advance for any advice. I got PokeTex, PokeDSPic, and PPRE but I'm not sure what I'm doing...

 

EDIT

So I've gone through bunch of tutorials and stuff. I've now got BTX Editor, PokeDSPic, PokeTex, PPRE, and Tinke. I tried simply swapping Lyra and Dawn's walking animations, and recompiled, but when I started the game it crashed so obviously I did something wrong but not sure what. I found a tutorial for Tinke but it's outdated or something because it tells me to do things that don't seem to be options on my Tinke. Please can someone help me out? This is driving me crazy. I thought it'd be simple to play as Dawn in SS since there is a AR code for it but all I've managed to do is give myself a headache. (Plus looking at sprites and stuff I realize I could replace Lyra completely with Dawn (as in backsprites, intro sprites, etc. Everything!) but if I can't even get the overworld sprite to work then it's not happening :< Thanks in advance for any advice!)

What you seek definitely exists.

In my wee days, I tend to edit Pokemon sprites (swap them out, change the orientation)

There's probably a guide somewhere here, but at this point I can't remember where.

Browse through our entire rom editing area, it's likely in there.

Okay I found some stuff that'd help, and now I've got BTX and Tinke, and I'm going through the files looking for all the sprites but I'm not sure what to do with the info. Do I just swap the files I want and then repack? Is it that simple? Also is there someway to identify files without manually opening all 863 btx files? Like is there a list with all of Lyra's and Dawn's listed or something? All I wanna do is play as Dawn in SS. Should be simple, I thought.

 

Edit: I watched a tutorial and replaced the walk sprite BTX for the SS Female Protag with the PT Female Protag, then compiled the game and everything but once I got out of the Oak section the game just froze. (so it froze when it tried to load the change.)

 

I'm giving up for now. I'm just giving myself a headache. I don't understand what I'm doing. As far as I know all the sprites are already in the game I just want to swap Lyra and Dawn but idk. It'd be cool to do the backsprites and everything too but if I can't even manage the overworld sprites I don't see that happening.
