Kazo's B/W Tools
Here are some tools I made for B/W ROM hacking.

BWME edits trainer mugshot sprites.

BWOE edits trainer overworld sprites.

BWSE edit front/back trainer battle sprites.

BWTE edits trainers and their Pokemon.

Oooh! the trainer sprite editer gives me some great ideas! (all 3 striaton gym leaders in 1 sprte, and a triple/rotation battle for thr gym!)

Awesome tool. Its amazing to see 4th & 5th generation tools.

Magius April 11th, 2011 7:09 PM

Back sprites are in same format as front sprites, and BWSE can edit those too :)

a/0/7/3 Back Sprites.

All are easy to use, except the Sprite editor, (Mainly trying to edit Chili, Cress, Cilan, Burgh, Roughneck, schoolkid, lass, waitress, scientist(F), swimmer (F), Ranger (M), Scientist (M), and Cynthia) but the Sprite Editer shows them as a mass of pixels, it's probally because I can't read what the Compressor says, but I know it worked on 001 (Hilbert, which showed up right) but not 081(Chili, who showed up as a long line of pixels) why is that?

Now, I have the sprites in properly, but the game freezes when it tries to load the Mugsprites, I didn't even edit Bianca, but it won't load her, it just freezes and plays the music.

are you compressing the sprite data and leaving the palette data uncompressed?

IronTrapinch April 12th, 2011 7:46 PM

I can't tell tbh, the Trainer Sprite Compressor is in a different Language, and When I use Kiwi to DeCopmress with the Mugs, there's a lot .lz files that appear and don't disapear when re-compressing, I'm going to try again tonight with a clean Black Rom, and see if I can't make some progress. (For the record, making the sprites look right in the editors is no sweat, it's the lack of proper compression training on my end, and I can't find proper tutorials for it either, OW was no issue, but Mugs and Trainers are giving me such trouble).

pleas give me video-tutorial:
1) editing front/back trainer battle sprites.
2) Mugsho sprite editing

This SEEMS like just what I need (I just wanna swap the default guy trainer with my own sprite sheet) but I have absolutely no idea how to work this. It may be easy to use for seasoned hackers, but it's not very newbie friendly (I don't even know what a narc is >_< ) I take it a Narc is different than a ROM, which means I'm pretty much SOL when it comes to using this?
Nevermind! Guess they were easier to use than I thought! ^_^'

You rule! Thank you for the tools!

Also, Nitro Explorer was created by me. So, go on my website right next to my username. Thanks for the tools, too! My new filespace sucks. I am gonna make a new one soon.

Errrm im having a major problem with the trainer edit. For some odd reason, after i edit a trainer, (note: its a random trainer per rom?) the trainers eye would catch me, but nothing would happen, as if the battle event isnt there? i dont mess with the unknown slots with the trainer but right now i dont know what to do about the trainer ( In the first gym, the first trainer needs editting....). Also
Abit off subject is there an Event edit for black and white? I need to edit and add just a couple off events to my hack.

metalflygon08 June 23rd, 2012 6:00 AM

just figured I'd note, the sprite editor works on BW2 games too, a/0/0/4

(it's got a scarf on now);

Wow, amazing tools! They will definitely become huge in V generation hacking! Congratulations on these amazing tools! (:

They aren't easy things tools to use though. They also aren't extremely hard though, either.
