    Hi Spiky, I have been using MKDS Course Modifier and I was able to edit the title screen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pyc2Z7uGyo
    Will SDSME support some features of MKDS like NCLR + NCGR + NSCR files or a NITRO explorer?
    Thanks a lot for your tool.

      First of all, that title screen is simply AMAZING. I think you're the first one to successfully edit it. MKDS Course Modifier is a powerful tool, and I know features like texture and palette editing are attractive, but I'm not planning to add them to SDSME. On the other side, an explorer is already available, although in a different way than you may be expecting. If you navigate to the folder your current ROM is, you will see there's a new folder with all the game data inside. You can access and edit the whole filesystem of the game this way, but always making sure you close every program using the files (except SDSME, of course) when saving, or a random error may happen.

      I may add a shortcut or something to SDSME to make it more visible

        Thanks a lot for the information.
        I have one more question, I have been trying to replace and edit the buildings models but allways the game frezees or the textures are wrong. I think that to solve this problem we must edit the file called "build_model_matshp.dat", is that correct or the problem is just the .nsbmd file?

          Spiky, there is one thing I can't seem to get;
          I'm trying to change a pond to act like a puddle with water encounters.
          How would I do that?
          IE: the first water you come into contact with in B2W2, I want to set it where you can walk across it and encounter the pokemon set just to the 5 water encounter slots.

          Could you spare the time to tell me how?

          The only way water table encounters happen is by surfing. I believe the water in Icirrus City uses a grass table. I'd take a look at that as a reference. Just remember that it's possible that grass and walkable water in Icirrus City can use the same table.

            I will like to say DS game modding has come so far.

              Dang. I was really hoping for a way to get some water encounters early without needing a fishing rod.

              Ok then;

              Know any way to change the look of the map to include puddles in the grass? That way I could put some water pokemon in the grass table and it would at least /seem/ feasible for you to encounter -say- a surskit in the grass tables.

              I really wish I could just make Key Items out of the HM's so you didn't need them.

                Edit the map so that it has the same tiles & permissions that mimic those at Icirrus City.

                    Really good title screen.
                    To add animations you must make them in 3ds max and export the .imd file with a .ita file. (This is my first clue)

                    Spiky, have you discovered something new about buidldings?
                    Thanks

                      In spite of adding animations in 3ds max there is no change in title screen.
                      My method of adding animations is wrong.How I add animetios in 3ds max?
                      I feel so ashamed.

                        Very well, you are a good NDS hacker.
                        You must edit the offset of the texture coordinates and insert a keyframe (frame 0), then you go to the frame 30 (in the timeline) and you change the texture coordinates with a different number and insert a keyframe (fame 30).
                        You can use the play button to see your animation.

However, maybe in the future I will make other small tools for things like that. If I have enough time, I will also try to write some basic documents on how to use SDSME, because the tutorials available don't cover everything and are outdated.

                          SDSME 1.9.0 will introduce a (once again) redesigned tileset editor, but that this time it will actually EDIT things. You'll be able to edit palettes and textures without MKDS, and also change some interesting settings that weren't previously available anywhere (transparency and texture flipping). Here's what it looks like (not finished, there are lots of features to add yet):

                          Looks cool. I haven't looked at your thread for weeks. It would be one of the most awesome things in NDS ROM Hacking history to be able to edit the palettes so easy.

                            When I open up a Soul Silver rom, and go to the map editor, it shows it all white. I'm sorry if this problem has been addressed before, but there's a lot of pages, and I don't have time for that. If there's any way to fix this, please let me know.

                                When i try to launch the application a window displays: "Can not activate the GL rendering context". It pops every time I try to launch the app. Do you know how to solve this problem? I have windows 7 32 bits. Thank you :D~

                                  Can someone explain to me how the event editor works to edit the current events of a game or make new ones? All those code language is really confusing me...

                                    I'm trying to simply remove all of the musical tracks from all of the maps.
                                    But have been unable to succeed in doing so.
                                    I've been. . .

                                    1) opening rom (i have placed the rom in the same directory as sdsme)
                                    2) editing a single entry, then saving header data
                                    3) save rom as new file in a new directory
                                    4) close sdsme
                                    5) open sdsme, open rom
                                    6) see the changes were not saved

                                    what am I doing wrong?

                                      I'm guessing this is a very simple problem, but I can't seem to figure it out.
                                      When inserting a map, no matter what I do, all my buildings (the "outside"-ones) show up as dmybox00. I'm guessing something in the header needs editing, but copying vars from other headers doesn't work.

                                      I'm using Platinum and try to insert a town over a map in route 224 and I'm borrowing the matrix from Victory Road.

                                          what am I doing wrong?
                                          If you dont want any music, just change the music id to 0(zero). Then save new rom or old rom, best to put in the same directory though. Also make sure you edit both daytime and nighttime just to make sure it works.

                                          If anyone ask me why I'm not working on a RomHack anymore, I got really interested in Unity3D, now im testing alot of my pokemon work on there with a friend.

                                            Maybe you could put this 3D model in a ROM hack, since it is Blender, which can be indirectly converted to NSBMD.

                                                Seeing the "Can not activate the GL rendering context" issue is not limited to a single person and seems to be more common, I decided to compare the actual code with that of SDSME 1.7.0, because up to that version there were no problems. I have found two commands which are supposed to run on startup and refresh the 3D renderers, and thus far I've been able to remove them without breaking the tool. Next version will include the change, and hopefully it will fix the issue. Sorry.

                                                I'm also working hard on scripts. Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 aren't supported yet, but hopefully in 1.9.0 they will work (with limited support, script plugins won't work). There's an important bug in the current script engine too, which makes all Gen IV and V games to freeze during execution when compiling certain movements. In order to fix it, I'm rewriting most of the engine and scripts will now be loaded separately, even inside the same file.

                                                Finally, I'm writing a PDF user's guide for SDSME. The guide will be included and updated every time I finish a new section, and will include pictures and complete explanations of everything.

                                                I hope you're enjoying everything in SDSME. See ya

In order to fix it, I'm rewriting most of the engine and scripts will now be loaded separately, even inside the same file.

                                                  Finally, I'm writing a PDF user's guide for SDSME. The guide will be included and updated every time I finish a new section, and will include pictures and complete explanations of everything.


                                                  I hope you're enjoying everything in SDSME. See ya
