    I have been Hacking ROMs For some time and I just found this place and registered,so I'm posting this topic.

    Now,3 Questions.

    Q:I need help changing ZONE to REIGON,but I use ESEII.
    How Do I do this?

    Q:I'm trying to manually change the 8X8,16X16,and 128X128 tiles
    but it keeps overwriting something else while I do it.
    Am I doing something wrong or should I get a different
    editor? :(

    Q:I'm new at message boards but I don't know how to
    post an image.How do I?

    1. You want to change "ZONE" to an improperly spelled name? You mean region, right? Anywho, go to the Title Card editor in the drop-down menu entitled "Tools."

    2. Be a tiiiiny bit more specific, what is being overwritten?

    3. Get a Photobucket account, save a screenshot of the game from where ever you need to, upload to photobucket, post either the link or [ img ]imagelinkgoeshere[/img ]. No spaces in the tags.

    Might want to fix your grammar typos...

    I'm using ESE v2.40, maybe your using a older version of ESE?. Anyway I assume you mean on the title card, so if you are using 2.40 or above all you need to do is go onto tools > title card editor and then in the bottom right hand box will be "ZONE". Just type "REIGON" into that.

    [img*]http://www.domain.com/image[/img*] but remove the *'s to make it work.

    And what I mean by overwritten,I mean Other tile segments.

    Edit a 16 tile, that 16 tile will be editted on all the 128 tiles. Is that what you mean?

    And I guess ESEII doesn't support changing "ZONE" text. I just tried; it reverted.

    You might want to edit your other post; you are a trial member and you don't need to waste posts. o.o

    Las Vegas made me laugh for some odd reason. o.o;

    First Guess!Correct!But iM Not Sure how to extend the levels first so I can
    add another zone...Hmmm...I got a lot of work to do....

    And just to be safe...Im not copying R.Solaris's idea of rebuilding Cyber city.
    Other people might want to rebuild it too........

    ....
    ....
    ....
    Hm.....I might want to use those 3 Blank levels in the ROM using ESEII.

    Cyber City is popular everybody's going to try it, you don't have to worry. Extending levels you mean the Level select?

    Edit: and there are 5 Blank levels, Hidden Palace and Wood aren't restored by default in the final :P.

    You know you could just create blank tile files and compress them and insert them through hex instead of wasting time esrasing the level pizel by pixel.
