Depending on the contents of each update, the hack-rom will be awarded with a specific amount of WaR Points.

The ranking began to be in force yesterday, ie on September 1st of 2013.

Nameless tile editor (with videotutorial!)

Por el 11 Oct 2010,

A tool with raw power. Nameless Sprite Editor is, undoubtedly, one of the best graphic editors out there.

NSE's main purpose is to edit minisprites, it may even seem that this tool is one of the various mini editors that are already available, but this is certainly not the case. It seems that Link12552,the author of this brilliant tool , has expanded his creation to modify all of the ROM's graphics.

It may not be as versatile as the Tile Molester Tool, however, NSE is a jack of all trades. Enough talking already.Let's check out what NSE has to offer.

  • Load and edit overworld sprites
  • Export and import minis as bitmaps
  • Export and import overworlds as libraries (stores frames and palettes)
  • Palette editing
  • Sprite resizing
  • Add or erase frames

General Graphics

  • Bookmark system (expanded by Wah) for frequent sprites or animations.
  • Load directly from an offset
  • Loads uncompressed animations, such as overworld sprites, animated tiles, etc.
  • Can load compressed graphics by lz77!! Like sprites and tiles
  • Plugin to edit Pokémon sprites


  • Palette editing
  • Built-in hex editor
  • ROM header editor
  • Import and export sprites' libraries in a .nsl file format

It really has a lot of stuff!. For more information, visit the author's site at: NSE Tutorial.

The following tutorial has been made by Sam that shows how to use the bookmarking system:

Your fate is decission-based. So make sure you think about them.

Pokémon Black and White sprite sheet

Por el 08 Oct 2010,

Huge contribution of sprites made by the forum !

I must admit that most pokémon of this new generation look, in my opinion, like fakes. But these sprites are the real deal, they're official.The impossible has been made, fakes actually turning out to be the next generation pokémon.

Warrior-Angel, who is an usual colaborator in the wah forum, published the sprites. You may find him in the sprites subforum, here is his request topic .Merit also goes to the Veekun web, that ripped the pokémon.Last but not least, many thanks to Ashter who ripped the trainers.

The sprite sheet contains the newest sprites separated individually (this was done for easier insertion, although they are 96x) and an additional sheet that has the front part of the sprites, shiny fronts, backs and mugshots of the trainers.

Without further ado, here's what you've been waiting for!
Pokémon Black and white sprites!

Here comes a great news for German-speakers: now we've received the German translation of Pokémon Shiny Gold X made by Albo-One.

Well, the patch doesn't cover all texts but just the beginning. It goes as far as Violet City, the Bellsprout Tower place. Having such a famous hack translated would allow more german people take contact with rom-hacking art and would make them feel curiosity about hacking.
