解説/FEBuilderGBA/How_to_obtain_necessary_tools_to_use_FEBuilderGBA_EN

Last-modified: 2017-12-02 (土) 05:08:56 (10d)

I will explain how to obtain necessary tools to use FEBuilderGBA.

OS

FEBuilderGBA is written in C# 4.0.
Win7 or higher is recommended.


It is unknown about the operation on Linux/mono, but it also seems to work.


Required tool.

I will explain the tools that are essential for using FEBuilderGBA.

VBA-M

this is a GBA emulator.
It is used for checking the operation.
Although VBA-M is recommended, other emulators can be used.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/vbam/

sappy

this is a music player.
From FEBuilderGBA, it is used to play sounds.
Since it is written in old VB 6, installation is quite troublesome.
However, there is an installer so you can use it easily if you use it.

Recommended Tools

Although it is not essential for the operation, I will introduce a tool that should be set.

Event Assembler

Since large patches such as magic systems are often implemented by EA, I recommend setting them.
From FEBuilderGBA, you can also activate safely with additional execution -> Event Assembler.

no$gba debugger

This is a GBA debugger.
If you want to challenge arm asm, let's install it.
Since breakpoints can be set, it helps to understand the code.

How to set each tool.

StepA1

Select "Settings" -> "Options".

To use no$gba-debugger, set it to "emulator 2".
Emulator2 is invoked by pressing Ctrl + F5.

StepA5

In "sappy", set sappy.
sappy will be called automatically if you press the "♪" button in each item.

StepA6

When using EventAssembler?, set it to "Event Assembler".(Set core.exe.)
EventAssembler? will be called automatically when installing patches that use EA.
You can call it from "Execute" -> "Add with Event Assembler" in the menu.

When you are done, write the result with the "Save" button.

VBA-M should start.

If you click the "♪" button in "Map Setting" or "Song Table", the song will be played with sappy.

Introduction of other tools.

Here are some useful tools for doing remodeling FE.

EDGE

It is a tool that can correctly handle palettes of images, so I recommend you to install them.

Tiled Map Editor

It is Map Editor.
FEBuilerGBA also has Map Editor, but please use it if you want to use sophisticated ones.
It can be used by outputting the map in tmx format.

世界樹

It is free software midi editing software. http://openmidiproject.osdn.jp/Sekaiju.html

A text editor that UTF-8 can handle.

I think that no one uses only Notepad, please use a text editor that UTF-8 can handle.

Since there are various editors, please choose the one you like.
Personally, I like Sakura Editor.

goldroad

It is a disassembler which is mainly used for remodeling in Japan.
It can be described with a syntax similar to masm.

devkit pro

It is an assembler that is mainly used for oversea remodeling.
It seems that it is based on gnu/gas.
