    Also it appears (from the link in your sig) that the Trainer Editor has not been made yet either.
    It does support HG/SS (for the features that work events, scripts, encounters, text).

    Yeah, I put the (there might be newer versions) for a reason. That is, I don't go around updating all my sigs with new links every time there is a new version. That was the first version under PyQt and explains how things work, so I link to that one.

      I'm making a list of codes of paragraph Maps and another with the id's of each mini-game sprite.
      I also have a list of text files in the game.
      When you complete any of the full texts, which hang here.
      The PPRE it you can get in Pokemon Project forums, not on the web.

          Well I didn't but you piqued my interest so I found out.

          On a decompressed arm9 file (this is for SS, I can't confirm that it's exactly the same for HG) the offset is 0x107A60. At that offset you have this:

          98 00 00 00 9B 00 00 00 9E 00 00 00

          Each 32bit value is the national dex # of the starter.

                I can, but I won't because if you can't find it in its thread, there's no point in you trying to use it.

                Hint: Its in the first post.

                Spoiler:
                The code (Motion 3D):

                Diamond/Pearl:

                DA000000 02000002

                HG/SS:

                Only God knows!

                -------------------

                How to use:

                Go to your Poketch Calculator:

                Type (#) then L+Start, release the buttons, then you go to any place that makes your screen change (houses, pokemon party, bag, marts, if you are in a place like that already going outside will work) with the "L" pressed to make that camera active in that place (you must press the L before entering)!

                (#) Can be:

                0 - Normal 3D (Little deformation)
                4 - 2D Used on Houses, Marts, PokéCenters etc (Parallel Perspective - No deformation)
                5 - 3D Used on Spear Pillar (Great deformation)
                8 - 3D Used on Stark Mountain (Top down, Far camera and Small deformation)
                9 - 3D Used on Oreburgh Gym (Camera from behind)
                14 - 3D Used on Hall of Origin (Top down and Extreme deformation)

                Obs.: No effect on the Distortion World

                Enjoy!

                And this is that Crazy Zoom code

                o L+R+Select - Down

                -----------------------------------

                That allows you changing the zoom, the angle, the rotation (not shown in the screenshots) and the position. Enjoy =P

                -----------------------------------

                SPECIAL NOTE: USING THE ABOVE CODE WITH THE MOTION 3D CODE IN 2D PLACES WILL CAUSE THE TOP SCREEN TO BE BLACK, ONLY USE BOTH IN 3D PLACES (OR PUT THE 3D CAMERA IN THE 2D PLACES BEFORE ENTERING).


                B2T now..
                This was posted ages ago (Thanks for the code, found some tweaking spots!), but has it yet been found for HG/SS? I would really like to see that code for that game.

                  That's not really a ROM hacking question. I know I don't know the answer. You'd probably be better off asking it on a cheat code board.

                  I would just like to thank everyone who's continuing the research into Pokemon Hacking on the DS platform that we at Pokespam started.

                    We would have to find where Lyra's sprites are and replace them with Dawn sprites, but I'm sure we are there yet even in D/P/Pl hacking.

                      How about PokeTex? I mean can PokeTex help for hacking the sprites?

                        Indeed it can. I've edited the hero sprites and replaced them with the sprites of them in their Rocket suits from later in the game.

                        Spoiler:
                        Bascially you'll need PokeTex and the HG/SS list of offsets which I believe are on the first page of this thread. Change the name of the existing list to list_old.txt or something and save this new list and list.txt in the same folder as PokeTex.

                        Open PokeTex and then open the ROM (the ROM must be clean, i.e cannot have a language patch or anything similar). Then using the drop down menu locate ,046F3570 since that is Lyra's main sprite cycle. A few offsets later are various sprites for Dawn so note down the pallettes by clicking on the pallette on the right hand side. Replace Lyra's pallette with the codes of Dawn's.

                        Now you need to edit Lyra's sprites by looking at the text displayed below (click Extend). Then click Save ROM after you've done each image.

                          There are three things I want to do--how possible are they?

                          I. Replacing the Johto Trainer Battle music with the Kanto Trainer Battle music--what can I say, I just love that remix! Figured it out. Used Nitro Explorer 2B and Crystal Tile 2, and just replaced the .sseq files.

                          II. Replace either Ethan or Lyra's overworld sprite with that of Lance--preferably Lyra, since I have an existing save of her. I see the post above me has instructions for replacing her with Dawn, but is it possible to do so for someone with less available sprites, like Lance?

                          III. Replacing her trainer back sprite with that of Lance's as well.

                          EDIT: I guess I'll wait another day for the US version to come out. There's no point in trying to muddle through PokeTex offsets for the Japanese version if I'll be using the new one tomorrow. But my two questions still remain!

                            Hello all!
                            looks like HGSS will be out tommorow in English and so I'm getting ready to hack as I play!
                            The game seems to be a completely remodeled version of platinum. new things like the Pokegear will provide new opretunities to hack. Get your Modcards ready guys, cause i think this game will be fun to hack AND play!

                              ...
                              It's not modeled on Platinum...
                              It's not called a modcard...

                                Okay, I see that item 19 on a/0/0/6, using the DP version of PokeDSPic, contains the first two frames of the Lance backsprite. They're in black and white, though, which is curious.

                                I still have no idea how to find overworld sprites though, since the Japanese PokeTex offsets don't seem to work on the US version.

                                  Hi everyone!

                                  I'm kinda new to hacking, but I have a rather ambitious project that I'm working on. I need help with something, though. I have been editing Attacks in Diamond to great effect, since there is a tool for that, but when I opened SoulSilver to see if I could import my work to that game, I found that the file structure is vastly different!

                                  I tried replacing "waza_tbl.narc" but it didn't seem to work, since the changes I made (making Gunk Shot 130 base power, just for instance) weren't showing up on the status screen like in Diamond. I used Pokesav to give my Totodile some of the attacks that I had edited, just to see if the effects I had hacked were implemented, but it seems like that's not the case. I had hacked Dream Eater to have the same effect as Absorb, Mega Drain, etc, for instance, but it still always fails against non-sleepping foes. This leads me to believe that there is a seperate file that determines the battle effect of moves.

                                  Looking through the SoulSilver file system, I noticed that there doesn't seem to be a direct counterpart... in Diamond, there's a whole "waza effect" folder, etc... in HGSS, the only relevant files i see (just by filename) are "kowaza.narc" under data, and "waza_oshie.bin" under wazaoshie/fielddata.

                                  Does anyone have any idea if the Attack system was totally rebuilt for HGSS or if DPPt Attack data is compatible, but simply under a different filename? Any tips or pointers n this area would be immensely appreciated!

                                  Thanks!

                                    Most of the files in HG/SS with coherent names are copies from Platinum or PBR. All the real data is in /a.

                                    I think the move data is in /a/0/1/1.

                                    There are some partial file lists earlier in this thread; see posts 36 and 37.

                                      I'm new to this hacking/editing biz so please don't murder me. I forged myself a custom OW hero sprite, all 12 positions included, and I was wondering how to drop this in my SS rom. I did some searching and reading of this thread, am I correct in assuming I would use PokeTEX and the list to find where the sprites are stored? How would I then go about changing it? If someone could please either give me a layman's tut or point me in the direction of some helpful threads, I would be most grateful. *goes off to do more research*

                                      EDIT: Okay so.. I did a little more digging, and I found a sprite replacement tut, unfortunately the list I downloaded doesn't seem to work with my English version. However I can attest that a working Acekard 2.1 with 1.6 AKAIO plays both HG and SS unpatched flawlessly. x3

                                      So I guess I can hold out hope that someone more skilled churns out a full-on hero sprite editor, OW + front and backsprites.
                                      Is there a list of hacking tools that currently work for HGSS? A compendium would be cool. :O

                                      .. Omigosh that merging thing is too cool. <3

                                        Hello, I need to use Pokemon Data Editor Ds[PDEDS] in Soul Silver, and for that i need to find personal.narc.
                                        Anybody know where is located?

                                        And another small question ... You can change the overworld sprites without poketex?

                                        Thanks

                                          Seeing as you guys have made progress, is there any chance the 3D engine could be disabled so that the game can be emulated in 2D? This might allow the game to be played on a PSP using the latest DSONPSP application.

                                            Large parts of the game consist of nothing but 3D models. Surely even if you could just "disable" 3D the game would be rendered unplayable.
