    Well, it can be easy, of course, graphics would need changing.

    It's pointless and noone is gonna to bother with it...if you want higher attack use better monsters,if you want your favorite monster to have more attack then use spell and trap cards to up there attack/defense problem solved...

    After PhoenixGoddess sent me a very mean pm that hurt my feelings [​IMG], I should care to elaborate. In the case that you are trying to change the base attack and defense points and want the card to reflect it, you will need to change graphics, though the act of changing stats can be rather simple by itself.

    Apparently the joking tone of "a very mean pm" didn't get across to the person it was meant for, it was seriously a true pm that basically told me that I wasn't being clear enough (in a way, that's what I got out of it but that wasn't the real point of the message). Sorry PG, I meant you no insult [​IMG]

    Anyway, maba, start by dissecting the rom with the hex, look for the attack values first. but remember, if you change anything, remember that Hex is in Base 16, which means after 9 you must use the letters A-F to represent 10-15. and then the letters 10 onwards will represent 16 going up.

    There was a very similar thread the other day in which I replied
    http://gbatemp.net/t305239-modding-a-nds-game-on-pc

    Short version- there are no graphical tools and no known (although I did not search very hard) simple methods meaning you will have to get lucky or more likely find a debugger how it all works before editing it. You can edit things in a hex editor but it is often extremely difficult to pull off anything truly useful without having first gone through the motions of figuring out how it all works.

    Beg your pardon?
    Since nobody gave you the answer you wanted on a silver platter you feel the need to act ungrateful?

    Well we wish you the best of luck!
