I have great news: the .OBJ exporter is done! It's based on MKDS Course Modifier, just like the 3D renderer. To export a map as OBJ, click on "Export" and change the format to "Wavefront OBJ" (it's been added below the usual NSBMD). Textures will be exported if a tileset is opened. Here's a model from HGSS imported in Blender:




The new version will be released after I add many other new features, including a native version of the building viewer. Please be patient, I want to make this tool as much bug-free as I can so everybody can enjoy it!

Awesome!
I can't wait for editing BW maps (If you was planning to make it).
Is it also possible to save models separately? Likes I only want to export the player's house in New Bark Town.

What does this mean? We can export maps and edit them in a program like Blender? Or is to just edit objects? I'd like an explanation from someone with some knowledge of this. Explain everything to me

It means you can edit models in Blender, yes. Or in any other program that supports OBJ models. However, converting them back to the NDS format is the hard part, and for now you'll be forced to use Nintendo-made plugins.

Well then.... can you or someone else recreate an old city from an old game and spread the news on YouTube or other places? Seems like you guys are so focused on developing the tool, you are forgetting why you started doing so in the first place! To make a custom map or make a nostalgic map. I'm sure you guys will be featured on a lot of gaming blogs on the net. We have a lot of guys coming through these forums and spreading the news about all of this awesome stuff! Get on it. Thanks.

That's a great job! Congratulations! Actually, that I know, you are the second person to edit a map to something that is really a map (those early palette hacks can't be considered edits). I did the first edit using Pokémon Gen IV Map Converter, and here's what I did back in June:

Really great work on this! As somebody who's brand new to map hacking, it will certainly be nice to jump right into DS instead of GBA like most others. Also, having plenty of experience in blender doesn't hurt!

This may be asking a lot, but is there any chance of this being updated to work with B/W/B2/W2? I understand that these games are far more complicated (for Pokemon anyway), given the angled grids and excess of models.

Thank you again, and keep up with the good work!

I'm here to bring you a new version! Version 1.5.0 introduces multilanguage support (only Spanish for now). It also has a new model list and OBJ exporting enabled. You can get it here: http://www.mediafire.com/?kq77b55j47mr18l

Thought I'd mention a few bugs:

1. I can't open a Pokemon Heart Gold (J) rom. It loads for a second, then says that it cannot find the file.
2. This is totally random, but when you're using Windows Live Messenger, and you have SDSME's 3D viewer in contact with the MSN window, and you send a nudge, the 3D viewer seems to wiggle with the window. You can test it with me xD

Whenever I click on "Save ROM", at first nothing appears to happen, and then I get a message saying, "The system cannot find the file specified". It won't save any of my changes no matter what I do.

Oh no, not again...

Does it say the file not found is "game.nds"? Or is it another file? Because maybe I left something beta in the saving process and it doesn't find a file.

To all of you who downloaded version 1.5.0 before this post was written: redownload the tool. It has a critical saving error that will make you lose all your game data because you can't save anything. Thanks to Team Fail and Chaos Rush for reporting the problem

Italian ROMs are supported already, the tool works with all languages. Also, there's an Italian translation of the tool in progress, and it will likely be available in the next version

lol guys look at what I did to my Platinum ROM:


I actually figured out how to do this before you uploaded the fixed version of the tool (lots of narc file extracting, and then replacing the files within), but I replicated it using your fixed tool also. This is a fantastic tool, and I really appreciate the effort you put yourself through!

It's amazing seeing how far you've gotten with Gen IV hacking, I remember how your DarkDiamond hack was originally a Diamond remake on FireRed, but then you moved to Diamond version itself, and then you've learned so many things from sticking with it. Keep going! You have my support 100%.

Look at what I found in my Platinum rom:



I've found this unused map and I'm trying to restore it at the moment.

Is there a way to convert .obj ---> .nsbmd?
Or to edit .nsbmd directly?

You can convert OBJ to NSBMD through some Nintendo tools, but as for direct editing of the NSBMD, I don't think that is possible yet.
