How to run Pokemon DS Map Studio
You will need the following requirements:

  • Windows or Linux
  • Java 8 (higher versions can be problematic)
  • A graphics card compatible with OpenGL 2

For running the program:

  • Double click the exe file "PokemonDsMapStudio 2.0.exe"
  • Double click the jar file "PokemonDsMapStudio.jar"
  • If the previous method doesn't work, probably there is one requierement that is not fulfilled.

If you can't run the program after those steps, please, do the following for cheking the error:

  • Open Windows file explorer and go to the folder where "PokemonDsMapStudio.jar" is located.
  • Type "cmd" in the file explorer's path. That will open Windows command prompt.
  • In Windows command prompt type: "java -jar PokemonDsMapStudio.jar"
  • Then the error message will be displayed in the command prompt. You can share the error message with me for finding a solution.
