I'm certain someone made a level editor for Advance 1, but it couldn't edit objects yet before it was abandoned.

If there was modding for the advance games I'd be on those in a heartbeat considering the amount of sprite work I do with the advance sprites but I don't see hacking/modding for the Advance games happening for a long time in terms of like stages or character mods unless me saying that just made someone want to prove me wrong.

I sort of made a sprite editor once. It tends to crash though, because I don't fully understand the format and am probably parsing it entirely wrong.

I love Advance 3, it's my favorite out of the advance series. :v:/>/> Anyways someone did make a hack of advance 3 in the past, and there is a hacking guide on the wiki. I don't think anyone has actually ever made a hack of advance, but if you teach yourself ARM assembly and make some tools you can hack the advance games. GBA temp might be a good place to learn more on how the gba works.

Are we talkin EXTREEM MANSECKZ here?

Not too long after posting here I came across this
I never new modding Battle was a thing but if modding battle is possible then I bet modding the Advance games could be done too

Well of course it's possible, the question is whether anyone cares enough to do it. If there's no editor, looks like you're going to have to do some researching!

I imagine not many people in this community know ARM assembly.

There was a time when people in this community didn't know 68000 assembly either, but they learned, because there was interest.

I'm glad someone else is looking into this... I started some work on this a while back... but kinda dropped the ball on continuing it. Part of the problem is the sheer ROM size, and the fact that GBA hacking just isn't as... dare I say, easy... or as well known, as Genesis hacking. A majority of people here have experience in just about everything else but that.

The only one's that I know of, would be Stealth, or any of the folks doing the Pokemon Fire Red disasms... I'm sure there are some others who hack GBA, but I am just not aware of who they are.

I wish you the best of luck, and if I can find my old notes, I'll pass them along.

I remember there being a small Mario & Luigi hacking community. Not sure what they're doing now though, but the forums still exist.

I'll have to check that out, along with the newest FireRed progress... it'd be nice to see some disassembled code and trying to find some semblance of code in Sonic Advance.
