Tips for Buying EarthBound

April 7th, 2012 | MOTHER 3

Jeffman recently released a new program that lets you edit and view various stuff in the MOTHER 3 ROM! Check out his post here!

Because it’s an early release and because the MOTHER 3 ROM is crazy complicated and unexpandable, it’s not as robust as PK Hack is for EarthBound. But if you’ve ever wanted to dig around in the ROM and see stuff or make difficulty hacks or anything like that, here’s your chance!

I ALWAYS wanted to do this!!! YEAHUH!!!!

Pepper said on Apr. 7, 2012

Pretty cool! I’ve always wanted to mess around with Mother 3 but it was pretty intimidating. Maybe I’ll give this a shot.

Foffano said on Apr. 7, 2012

Can it help me edit the graphics?

Mato said on Apr. 7, 2012

Probably not, as dealing with compressed data is a huge problem for a program like this.

JeffMan said on Apr. 7, 2012

Some things are uncompressed, though. Everything in that screenshot that says “editor” is editable. But yeah, anything that’s compressed (enemy graphics, maps, etc.) won’t be editable.

So now people can add a new age retro hippie in mother 3? This looks awesome!

KDchomper said on Apr. 7, 2012

couldnt you use this with the mother 3 sprite editor? i mean if you cant edit them using this just use that right?

GhostSonic said on Apr. 7, 2012

I’m really impressed with how much you can edit with this thing. Pretty amazing stuff, especially the BG editor. Just a small question, will it ever be possible to edit enemy graphics? Or does the compression just make that too difficult for now?

I love to sprite edit on the mother 2 pkhack, but now the mother 3 pkhack, this is sweet!

haha! I used to have tons of ton doing this with pokemon ruby. i have to try this out.

UG_Bubbleman said on Apr. 8, 2012

Text Editor? So that means, it can also be used to translate the game?

Mato said on Apr. 8, 2012

I’m pretty sure it just lets you view text, not edit it.

R.- said on Apr. 8, 2012

I can’t export sprites. Has Anyone got the same problem?

JeffMan said on Apr. 8, 2012

You’re right, it was broken. Fixed now. Also added some item stuff.

TheMrSaturnGuy said on Apr. 9, 2012

I was peeking in the battle entry BG editor and I found some drawing-like backgrounds from 178 to 18E.
Does anyone have any idea of what these could be used for?

Cube the Starman said on Apr. 9, 2012

Can this edit music, sorta like ebmused?

TheMrSaturnGuy said on Apr. 9, 2012

No, It cannot edit music. It can however, edit shops and items.

Some guy said on Apr. 9, 2012

The Battle Backgrounds
178 – 18E
159 – 15B
Are pretty interesting, many variations of the unused Pigmask, a Wierd Clayman and the letters A and B witht he same Style. And a Emergncy Exit Sign…

Oh, debug enemies.

Phi said on Apr. 10, 2012

I’m making new “Don’t Care” names, changing a couple of shops,making the unused candle enemy have insane stats, and I might use the sprite editor. By the way, how do you make an ips patch with this, if you can?

Mato said on Apr. 11, 2012

You can’t make IPS patches with this game, the ROM is too big. You’ll have to use UPS or some other format if you want to distribute stuff in patch form.
