    You're not helping by saying this. Plus something this intricate takes time, so either don't say anything at all or support.

    From what I was told, he is rewriting the application, so that'll take him some time.

        Oh! A DS map editor. It was here since 2012 but I didn't notice it until now. I haven't been in pokecommunity for long and I just started to ROM hack like a month ago using advance map. Frankly there are so many fields were you can elaborate on that it's kind of overwhelming. I still have not mastered anything. I do maps but sometimes I get stuck because I just don't start editing tilesets and stuff and I wish I could just add sprites and new tiles instead of replacing existing ones and also I wish I could create new headers for each new map I can make. There are a few that are not in use within the game but that is just not enough. Going on topic. I'm actually ecxited about the idea of being able to create maps in DS pokemon games. I would really like to hack a black 2 rom. The question is will I have trouble using this tool? Like I imagine something that I want to do and suddenly I'm going to be unable to make it because of program limitaions? Because what I seek to do is add regions to the default existing region. In Black 2 being Unova. For example I want to recreate the Hoenn region with using gen 5.2's graphics. Is this program at that stage where I can freely edit maps of gen 5 and create scripts? I know this might be hard work but I can only imagine all the effort that is being put in this program. I just want to make sure that there won't be any surprises were I suddenly have to stop what I'm doing because of an issue. Maybe I should test it. But answers could also help before I take this decision.

          Hi Spiky, this tool is awesome and I've tried to use it for a project I've got in mind.

          However, something strange occurs. I edited Header 107's (Mt.Moon Main Floor) Texture 1 field replacing it's value with the one of Cerulean Cave, since I wanted Mt.Moon to use Cerulean Cave's tileset. I made sure I pressed enter when writing the value and saved the header.

          But when I test in-game, the map has still got it's original tileset, even though SDSME shows the map's header with the new value /:

            It's not that, you can't edit the tileset like that. Your gonna have to change textures internally, by using MKDS Editor/Modifier Latest. Or you can extract the tileset file and change the texture names using hex. I wish there was an easier way doing this, but using MKDS is the easiest.

              The script command "008B" may be named "SetGivedPokemonMove". For example:

              Code:
              GiveStoredPokemon 0xPokemonNumber 0x?? 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x800C
              008B 0x8005 0x0 0xFirstMoveNumber
              008B 0x8005 0x1 0xSecondMoveNumber (Optional)
              008B 0x8005 0x2 0xThirdMoveNumber (Optional)
              008B 0x8005 0x3 0xFourthMoveNumber (Optional)
              This script is used, for example, in HGSS, when you receive the Dratini with Extreme Speed.

                Yes, but this would make every map using that tileset file have the new textures, while I want only Mt.Moon and Cerulean Cave to display them. Is that possible?

                  I know how to add a new texture line to the tileset files, the only problem is that you have to find time hex editing the maps obj files that have those textures. Edit the map.obj with hex editor and find texture name. You can change the name of the textures you see to the tileset's texture. It will only affect the map.obj you selected. If I can make a tut on how to add a new texture to the tileset file, you can use those new texture names on maps you only want textures to appear in.
                  (remember map.obj textures must have the same names as the tilesets in order to show.)

                  Sorry I made this very fast, and I'm not an active user because I'm a full time student, and part time worker. If you need help or more tips, just pm me or other guys who does nds rom hacking around here.

                  I'm also making a program that can edit the textures and its name using something like paint. By attaching an obj, you can see the textures it has. I'm not sure what else is needed, but I will have a release plan for it.
                  (It means that you can select an obj map file, and tileset file that goes with the map. Then edit them or add new texture without the use of hex editing.)

                  Because of this program I haven't been on hacking other areas of the NDS Rom, since I plan to solo this project out. I'm still learning the use of how to program with C+ and other stuff. But I'm getting there.

                  Goodluck RomHackers!

                    The SDSME makes the HGSS arm9 incompatible for r4 and similar. And the map headers are in arm9.bin

                          Hi,Spiky.
                          I am looking forward to version 1.9.0.
                          Your tool helps me a lot to edit maps.
                          So please don't stop developing SDSME.
                          This is a example.

                            It's just like any program, if it isn't open source... no one can continue where the person left off at when the person no longer has interest in continuing the project or they have had some condition in where they can't continue. AdvanceMap is a good example of how a closed source project has been abandoned.

                            But of course, I highly doubt this project would get abandoned until quite a few years have passed. ^^'

                              Last time I checked, it didn't have the ability to add Map Headers yet. I'm sure it would've by now if it was open-source.

                              There is a way of doing it via hex editing, but it requires a lot of modifying the ARM9 binary code and the overlay that contains the pointers for the map headers. It requires repointing in the overlay and adding in new code for the header, for each new map that you want to add into the game. And even I don't even know how to do it, since it's something I have never really even got around to doing at all.

                                Seeing as SDSME hasn't been worked on for quite a while, the demand for less buggy open source Map Editor has been increasing. Despite so many Nintendo DS ROM Hacking tools out there, there just isn't one (other than SDSME and NPRE) that is dedicated to editing the map files in a/0/0/8 (in B/W/B2/W2). Since they all have an NSBMD file in each of the map files, you'd need to have the knowledge to know where the NSBMD file begins and ends within the file. I'm pretty sure I've got it documented in one of my tutorials on how to extract an NSBMD file from a map file and how to replace it. How about we do some research and development into where the map headers are stored in B/W/B2/W2?

                                I think the whole point is imo... we've just gotta all work together and share code with each other along with an open source code in order for a verity of tools to be used for Nintendo DS ROM Hacking. As such, it would be nice to see SDSME being worked alongside other projects and projects being merged with others and so on, while keeping it open source.

                                I've been thinking about developing a NSCR file editor for quite some time now, but I just don't have enough programming knowledge to do so yet. Just imagine how useful it would be to have something like a NSCR editor in SDSME? It would help with mapping graphics in images and all kinds of stuff like that.

                                The possibilities of creating tools for Nintendo DS ROM Hacking (and even Nintendo 3DS ROM Hacking now) are just absolutely endless. We can do anything! ^^

                                    He most likely just quit and moved on with his life like many hackers come to do. Hackmew and JPAN are examples of that.
                                    He never was social either so I doubt anyone could make contact with him, and if you could I don't believe he'd email willing to just jump back into the project.

                                      He may not wish to jump back to work, I agree. But at least he could share the code with others, so his work wouldn't go to waste! This is definitely something we don't want to happen, right?
                                      I'll be trying to contact him.

                                      I'll be trying to contact him.
                                      I do have contact with him, so I will have a talk to him about it. And yes, I totally agree that SDSME should be made open source. After all, it's the most vital part for importing the 3D models of maps and to also edit movements as well. Also, there's many bugs in the code that need to be fixed, which is why a lot of people are having trouble using it.

                                      Tools are often the starting point for ROM Hackers, before they move onto learning the hexadecimal values in machine code within the ROM itself (or it's files within). So that's why it's important that we have a stable and open source map editing tool that can encourage others (including people that do 3D modeling) into Nintendo DS ROM hacking.

                                      Heck, even 3DS ROMs are already being modified. Mario Kart 7 is one of them.
