Values in RAM like the one you found, are either initialized by code or from ROM. If they come directly from the ROM, you can try to find them in the game's binary. Otherwise, you need to find out the code that writes them.

Also, in a clean ROM, the game's main binary is compressed, so you won't find values by directly searching into the ROM. You should rather open the ROM in NSMBe and extract arm9.bin and search into that.

arm9.bin is divided in sections, each one is copied to a different location in RAM, so finding the offset in arm9.bin is tricky. I should go and add support for this in the editor.. The support is already there and it's used for the ASM patching, I could add an interface for it. If you want to know how all this works, you might want to look at Arm8BinaryHandler.cs in the editor's code.

Buut I'm not sure if that address is initialized from ROM. I think it isn't, it's a variable that's set from runtime. You could look at where it's set either with IDA Pro or tracing writes using the no$gba debugger, and modify the code that sets that variable.

Uh, it's in the Level Editor. You have to go to the Level Config, where also the "Preview BG" button is.

Take an older revision, where the whole Level Editing User interface was different.
Seems that  Dirbaio and  Piranhaplant have removed that function in newer versions.

It wasn't me . But, yeah, this was a useful feature. I'll see if I can add a button for it on the backgrounds tab.

Well, IMO it should be an entire separate tool. It shouldn't be in the level settings, it doesn't make sense. And while we're at it we can make it change any table, not just BG tables.

I used it once and it worked well.
But it's a bit tricky to set up.

You can also record with Camtasia studio (is what I use) or with other screen recorder.

Yeah but recording with DeSmuME is better because the resulting video doesn't lag even if your computer lags while recording it. The result is a smooth 60fps video.

All other programs record from screen, so if your computer lags the lag will be visible in the video...

Thanks for the replyes. I rleased a trailer of my hack with both screens because I the video was already finished. Next time I'll use Camtasia.

Is there any 3D Lighting setting that suit with night level?

I guess there is, but I dunno, what is the value.
Just test them.

Thanks, I hope I could find it.
If there's a list, it'd be cool.
