Question A few questions

As I've mentioned on my intro(I think) and my concept thread, I want to try to start small and then build up to something a little more elaborate when it comes to rom hacking and learning more about it.

So for now, I'll ask a few questions as a beginner so I can get on the right track:
  1. How do I turn my changes into a patch?(I really couldn't find this anywhere.)
  2. Can I get some recommendations for some programs to use for some minor hacking or at least start working with?
  3. Is there a definitive way to insert Front/Backsprites to Emerald or Fire Red? For the love of Arceus, I've tried 4 different methods and I either get the game crashing, the method not showing the change, or the program I use having issues after I insert the sprites(until I use a new rom base).

1) you click "create patch" then select a clean fire red ROM. Then select the ROM you want to create a patch of, then chose where you would like to save it and its name.

2) This really depends on what you mean by minor hacking.

3)There is no definitive way. It is all dwn to how well you know the tools at hand. But personally I user NSE Classic.

1) I'm sorry, but I am not sure how that answers my question. Are you referring to a specific program?

2) I guess something like changing the soundtrack or something that gives the option for a similar novelty, but I was thinking what would be a good staple rom hacking tool I may need to get used to.(Kinda in the same vein as people say "Never use MS Paint for image editing.")

3) Whenever I use that program, it keeps failing on me to the point where either the hacked rom crashes or it refuses to allow anymore change anymore front sprites after I bother to do even one solitary front sprite change.

1. Use a program called LIPS, and then follow his instructions Google LIPS IPS patcher, you'll find it

2. Linkandzelda made a list of every tool you may want, you can use them if you want or use specific ones: http://www.pokemonhackersonline.com/...-Map-tons-more

3. May have been something you did, I don't use NSE so I have no idea.
