I really hope this becomes successful as I think everyone else does too. lol
Anyway, it's looking great so far. If you need any help maybe LU-HO can help you? As he has experience on making a map editor, so he could give you a little advice. That's just a suggestion you don't have to listen to me, but I'm just trying to give you ideas on who could help. Good luck with this project. (Y)

For writing why dont you check the model size(bytes) in comparison the the imported one and sorta make it like Unlz.gba but the image box bit with some sort of plugin from some model viewer to show the models :D just my two cents

Is there any chance of releasing a BETA of this? it'll be better to suggest features then.

That'd be a plan- to see what this program can do.

Any idea when this will be released?

I think i can release a special build with first map for the next month.

Can it change the song that plays on a given map?
Quote originally posted by Spiky-Eared Pichu:
That would be very useful, although you can change it with PPRE. The problem is that it doesn't exist yet a list with the music values.

If you are planning to add a music chooser function to the program, I can help you by creating a list with the music values.


I'm not sure if we can change the musics with PPRE.
If you have offsets, music values and music list, i can integrate the function in a new tool, with an Event Editor, Header Editor, etc etc...

Hey Link_971,
I have a question for you:
What is Porte électrique Bâtiments in english? I think Valley Windworks but I am not sure.
And I have a note for you:
The first list, I don't translate it because the Dutch pokemon diamond/pearl/platinum town/village/route names are the same as in English.

I have already translated the files, and "Porte électrique Bâtiments" means "Electric door of Buildings" (you know, the one of the Pokémon Center, Mart, etc).

I know I'm not Link_971, but I always want to help people having trouble with languages

Is it still there? It says the size is 0.00 MB.
NVM. I'm currently translating all I can into English.

UPDATE: I have to finish "DP Maps (Outside)" . Everything else is 100% translated.

I made a german translation, but I couldn't translate the following ones:

[Route 214 - Passage secret] - Maybe the Spring Path?
[Parcelle d'arbres]
[Surface maritime]
[Parcelle d'arbres ronds]
[Parcelle d'arbres ronds]
[Terrain verdoyant]

Siège Pokémontre S.A

and the sans porte in the models list everywhere.

Route 214 - Passage secret is `Route 214 - Frühlingspfad`,
sans porte means `Ohne Tür`. I don't know the other things.

That took 5 seconds to guess. Let's break it down.

Pokemon + Montre
Pokemon + Watch
Obviously Poketch, so the Poketch building :D I'm actually glad I took French now. Also, I don't think that's all the models. I went through with a hex editor a while back, and there were some missing, like some of the various Galactic buildings and Eterna Buildings. Maybe they are stored seperately???

yay, i already knew it

i've finished the translation with the map viewer(with using my brain) and I think the last maps are only the blocks for the borders.

In german randblock

I'll search the other ones, but it seems, that there are just empty rooms for a while.(maps)

It seems that there are 665 maps itE, so there is much work to do

I have translated all I can into English. If you can show me the maps of what I couldn't translate, I'll give you the English name. (124-131)

Thanks. Now, 124-131 are odd, Marine Passage? I think 33, 39, and 173-178 are border blocks/Mystery Zone.

As some people might know about this already, the maps are consisted of fixed map size of 25x25 blocks.

So basically if all the maps are to be read, it would have to be every single map square on the Town Map layout. Because the Town Map always locates the exact possition you are. From what I've realized from the surf glitch in the Japanese Diamond/Pearl versions in version 1.0 (first release), I've noticed how when you go across to the left... it changes your possitioning on the map to the very first map. in the square. Which would be possitioned at 0x0 (at the top left corner), the 0 possitions on the first row and second row are out of range of the world map (Town Map).

So yeah, creating a map editor would require every blank maps, single terain object maps, normal maps, and special maps (eg. inside buildings, Lake Verity, caves ect.). The single terrain object maps only just need one object to fill the entire map.

I'm sure once the map editor is complete, I'm sure creating 4th Generation hacks could be a little more easier in mapping than the 3rd generation, because you can place different objects made and place them anywhere. The 3rd generation required placing one tile after another, while the 2nd and 1st had 4 tiles placed together.
