Advance Map is the most used map editing tool for GBA games.

Ok guys, I don’t want to create another tutorial on Advance Map, you can easily find one by searching the net.

    Hey, quick question- firstly, thank you for making these available! I have tried to use most of these tools and some of them just do not function or install, regardless of what i do/ don’t do/ install/ uninstall/ find components etc… would you know if that’s because these are just outdated and/ or Nintendo has cracked down on them?

      I agree… I don’t know why it’s inversed colour, and it hurts my eyes as well. Does anyone know how to fix this? If this tutorial really is the “bread and butter” to rom hacking, then there needs to be a way to fix this so we can actually start!

    How do i move something like how do i grab a pokemon center in a town then put it somewhere else in the town? Also how do i make a house actually have people/ a room in it? I’ve tried it when i made a house but i can’t get it to work.

        Please help! In my extracted folder it only contains 4 things which are Inu, HackRomTools – Advance map 1.92, Maps and Sprachen. But there’s not just flat out “Advance map” itself a.k.a the file that opens AM.

            I tried downloading another emerald file, and it is working. there was probably something wrong with the last one. thanks

      I’m not an expert of GBA hacking, I sincerly don’t know how to use that -.-‘
      As for the Wild Pokemon, which map are you trying to edit? It’s a weird thing you can’t add wild pokemons…

        I figured everything out, but now I’m having a problem with adding people. No matter what I set their movement to, they are always looking up. I cannot get them to look down.
