    Well technically this is a rom hack and I couldn't find a section purely for coding. If there is direct me to it and move this thread please.
    I've found my own way to coding and it is made up of using nitro explorer, cheat engine and the rom. What I have done is activate Nitro Explorer and and checked the "Use Hex Sizes" option. Then I activated Cheat Engine 5.5, checked the "Hex" option, and typed in the digits for Hex Size. I scrapped a play as Roxas mod and switched the digits to see if it would work. It HAS worked but it came with unexpected results. i seem to have made a mini- character/weapon mod in one and I'm playing as Roxas with a different gear. I'll happily type up the results from the Cheat Engine. The problem is I'm new to coding when it comes to a DS and there are two folders with the digits containing 3E. I've heard one is a Weapon folder and the other is the Character folder but I'm not sure which is which.

    This is the code I have so far. This is the mini weapon/char mod in one

    22044c65 00000000
    d0000000 0000003e
    9204bd84 00000080
    2204c65b 0000003e
    d0000000 00000000

    So any DS coders here that can see what the problem is? The top line are the digits that I came up with Cheat Engine 5.5

    And this is the Roxas code I scrapped
    9204BD84 00000002
    2204C65B 00000000-----The Roxas data file
    D0000000 00000000
    9204BD84 00000080
    2204C65B 00000000
    D0000000 00000000

    And compare it with the Axel code to see what the similarities are and what the coder changed.
    9204BD84 00000002
    2204C65B 00000001----the Axel data file
    D0000000 00000000
    9204BD84 00000080
    2204C65B 00000000
    D0000000 00000000

    When I switched the digits in the code I made. When I replaced the 0 and 1 in both codes with the File Title 3E it had BSOD.
    So that's what I did. Any help? The weapon change occurs when you switch characters. For example, Day 357 you have Oathkeeper. Day 358, Some different gear

    The bolded 0 is the actual FILE in the games programming as well as the 3E for Ventus. I need to know where to place each line. That is all I need to know. The above code is the Play As Roxas Mod. I scrapped it and inserted the 3E in and it gave a BSOD or Black Screen of Death. If you know any DS jokers then please tell me or which lines you guess actually Activate the code.

    I'm on the verge THE VERGE of getting this code. I will list Everyone that helps make this code work. To the people reading. If this works, the code that has long been revered as unmakable. We, the ones who get this made, will be revered as DS coding gods.

    First tell us what the code should do! because no one has a clue about what you are trying to do.

    It's probably not much help, but I don't ever remember modding a weapon folder when I gave Xion the scythe pack(Marluxia weapons+Xion/Roxas movements ftw). I'm about 70% sure that the weapon files are in the character folders...
    If that helps at all.
    data\ba\ch is the directory for the character folders, I think.
    Also, I want to say it was the w_.p2 file that held weapon,s but I'm not sure about that either... I'm 97% sure it was either w_.p2 or wp.b holding weapons though.

    My problem was that I didn't know who's folder the "r2" folder was... I didn't know if Dual Wield roxas had a 2nd folder, or if Boss mode Riku had a 2nd folder...

    Well I couldn't help much because I haven't touched the files for modding since within the month the game came out in japan, but I tried =/...
