No! Hex is Greek for "six"! Hexadecimal means 16, because Hex ^= "six" and "decimal" ^= "ten", thus 6 + 10 = 16.

$20 is not the same as normal 20.

The "normal" 20 being denoted in decimal, i.e. base-10, system.

Go to the appropriate offset, or "address" (as I like to think of it)

Offset != address. While for GB games, the base address is always 0x0000, making the file offset effectively the address in the file binary, this isn't necessarily so. For instance, GBA games are mapped to RAM beginning from address 0x08000000. While GB ROM is usually mapped the to 0x0000-0x7FFF range (there are exceptions), the game's MBC will address the ROM still linearly in the same way the file is addressed on PC. This is for instance why I prefer the GB-side notation of bank:address instead of some address in a binary file. That way, data locations are independent of the storage of the actual ROM contents on disk.

However, it is usually merely called "offset" for historical reasons.

cYa,

No. ἕξ is Greek for "six". Hex is its Romanization. We're such nit pickers, here. If we weren't we would accept that hex is commonly used to mean base-16 number system.

Wahahah, you guys make me laugh, tnx to your stuff "Tauwasser" anyways..I slowly, as in slowly learning those things right now, thanks to those guys out there, who dedicate their time..
Btw, if u like my backsprite, you can use it.."fyi" i didicate my time doing sprite..so if you like i can upload my sprites. I love to "see" my sprites on a full hack game. Besides, i figured out that its hard to make a full hack..so you guys just request a sprite, ill upload it, though i really dont know how to upload it in here.. Darkrai, Groudon, Jirachi, Latios, Latios, Kyogre and the starters are available in 56x56 2-colors i mean 4-colors front sprite, and 48x48 back sprite, but darkrai's back seems odd, but ill upload it 4 u guys..and one little thing, i have trainer sprites, a very special sprite, but i dont want to upload them,i want them to be individually given..ü

(please help me in uploading my works)
