Parakoopa Posted June 12, 2020 Share Posted June 12, 2020 (edited) Project website: https://skytemple.org Hi! A few months ago I wondered if there are any tools to make custom PMD2 ROM Hacks. I found out that much work on the games had been done, but there wasn't really any user friendly GUI editor to make custom ROM hacks. So I decided, I'd give it a shot and try to make my own. This tool can edit both the ROMs of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky EU / NA. Now, before I begin, I want to stress that NONE of this would have been even remotely possible without people like @psy_commando, @Nerketur, @evandixon, @MegaMinerd or any of the other PMD ROM hackers. I'm not somebody who's good at reverse engineering ROMs or actually finding out how stuff works. They did all the hard work (especially Psy!) and they deserve all the credit for it! All I did was filling some gaps and building this editor, that I'll now present to you...: Features Map Background Editor Let's you view and edit the backgrounds of the map. Supports importing map backgrounds from image files. The collision of the map can also be changed. Scene Editor Let's you edit the position of Pokémon and Objects on the overworld maps and change how cutscenes are built. Script Editor / Debugger Let's you edit the script files of the game and debug them in realtime. > Script Editing You can edit all scripts in the game with features like auto-completion and calltips. > Debugging You can set breakpoints and let the game halt at different parts of the code. > Debug Overlay A debug overlay shows you where objects, triggers and Pokémon are rendered and what their hitboxes are > Game State View the current state of the Ground Engine, the game's script engine: What scripts and scenes are currently loaded and which actors and objects are placed on the map? > Variables View and modify the current game variables in real time. > ExplorerScript ExplorerScript is a new high level language that the scripts in SkyTemple are written in. It is compiled to the binary code (SSB) that the game uses. Dungeon Editor Edit and create your own dungeons and customize the spawns for each floor. Dungeon Tileset Editor Edit the graphics of dungeon tilesets. Fixed Room / Boss Fight Editor Edit treasure rooms and boss fights, create entirely new bosses and assign them to dungeons however you like. Ground Lists Change various lists in the game, such as the starters, the recruitment list, a list of placable NPCs (actors) or the world map. Pokémon Data Edit the data of Pokémon, including stats, move learnsets and portraits. More Features Apply ASM patches to add new functionality to the game Edit misc. graphics, such as the fonts or the message borders Edit all text in the game Source Code Can be found on GitHub: https://github.com/skytemple Downloads (Linux, Mac, Windows) Discord We have a Discord community for support: https://discord.gg/4e3X36f Edited December 17, 2022 by Parakoopa 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
