    Due to the fact that CajeASM hasn't been updated by me for many years, still has some odd bugs regarding instruction counter and due to the fact that (nowadays) better alternatives exist now, I've decided to delete this tool from this website. An alternative assembler I can recommend is bass, currently maintained by ARM9. To be found here:

    Upon further play, I discovered this hack broke an integral system to the game (the dash function).

Advance Wars 2 "Balance"

Hack of Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising


This is a CO “balance” hack in the vein of my Advance Wars 1 “balance” hack. Strong COs are made less extreme and weak COs are made more viable. CO dossiér descriptions are also more detailed. Boss and bonus characters are kept overpowered, Flak kept weak.

All COs are unlocked by default.

Uses Xenesis’ Defense Display and Pointer Hack Ultra patches.

Check Changes.txt for all the changes.

The hack is contained in an .ips patch, for which LunarIPS is needed.
