Basically, all the dialog from hitting info boxes won't show up anymore. It's just a black rectangle now. No text in there at all! All the palettes are correct too. This is annoying since it all displayed correctly before. What happened?

Did you apply any patches?

No patches were applied. Only at the very start with the unmodified ROM.

Maybe you forgot to type something in.

*insert ¯\(°_o)/¯ here*


Or you probably erased the letters from GFX 2A accidentally. Just copy them from a clean ROM, if you did erase them.


No everything's in there. :S If this problem can't be fixed I guess I could just make a small cutscene for each dialog box... -.-

Did you disable layer 3 >.<

Your layout has been removed.
What do you mean, disable layer 3? Assuming you mean in the emulator, that couldn't be right. If he had done that, nothing would show, up not an empty box.

Now, have you tried this on different levels?

EDIT: ?Did you mess with the palettes? I believe that the text and box can be altered by the palettes, so if you made them both black, that's why it wouldn't show up.

plz to use grammar of the better, mister

And the black box is HDMA, not layer 3.

Really? I always thought it was layer 3, which is why tides and such would dissapear.

--------------------
Your layout has been removed.
The text is layer 3. The box is HDMA + windowing.

You can see which part is which using a lightning generator (or editing one of the palette colors. I forget which). The HDMA portion will be lit up by the lightning effect (or palette change), while the layer 3 portion will be black.


Anywho, three possibilities:

- You forgot to save the OW after changing the text.
- Your palette might be wrong.
- Layer 3 might be on the subscreen or not being displayed at all. I don't think any of the level modes you set in LM can do this, so a patch or levelasm that affects BG orders could've done it.


It's just really weird. All that was pointed out in this thread is correct. I did save the overworld, my palettes are correct, layer 3 is not disabled and it does have this problem on every level.

I inserted all the patches into the ROM before it was modified. The text used to show up in the box before, but now it won't since I've edited the ROM a lot more. I never did a hex edit to the ROM either. my ROM is still 3MB. Lunar expand didn't help either. Backups FTW :)

Try different emulators or mabye look at the palletes, you may have messed somthing up. Did it happen to all levels?
When did it start?
PLease post a screen. (F1 --> Save Snapshot --> [enter] It only works on znes)


Nevermind, it somehow fixed itself :S. Oh well good news for me :D
