    Hello everyone. I'm in need of a little bit of assistance on editing the 'Back Sprite' of your Player Character in battle, (and I mean every frame of it). I also need to be able to add in new music from other DS games with the same music format. I know that this is possible for I have seen it myself with my own eyes.

    Another thing I'd like to know how to do is how to edit the actual Trainer Sprite itself when you enter a battle. By this, I mean the opponents battle sprite which faces you before sending out a Pokemon, and, for example, the one on the Trainer Card of the Player Character.

    Now, before you say LOLGOOGLE etc, I checked Google and many sites prior to asking here, and it was to no avail.

    An example of my work in progress can be found here:

    (obviously in my videos).

    On a last note, I also need to know how to change names of characters in-game, like Cyrus to 'Light', and 'Prof Rowan to 'Phoenix' etc, and to change what is said in-game.

    Thank you very much for reading. I would be very grateful for any help concerning these matters.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, i don't know and really want to know that myself too. Check the PokeSAV forum or the Pokecommunity topic Platinum daimond and pearl hacking I think it was called. Well, I hope you find it and that you say how to do it here on GbaTEMP [​IMG]

    I already went there. I made a topic with the same text as in this one, and it got deleted instantly by mods. And there's nothing in that topic on PokeCommunity about it, so...

    Actually no. And I already stated in my first post, Google found me NOTHING. Hence why I asked here.

    i think what you say is very much possible. using nitro explorer you should search for the files containing the graphic files. you would obviously need a program to edit them. maybe no program has been made till date coz nds hacking is in its starting stage.
    as for the audio, it is easy. there is a tool called VGM Trans. it can extract the files in wav or Midi format but i dont know if u could import new sounds.
    thenewpoketext would help to change the names in the normal text, but for in battle text i dont know.
