Hello.  This is my second video game faq ever, so please be gentle.  I'll try
to be as concise as possible.  I've been frustrated with most of the "official"
codes out there for hacking map and battle cards.  The vast majority of these
codes are next to worthless, and allow for zero customization.  They code for
an even distribution of both crappy and great cards, there's no mention of how
to get premium cards, and some even contain pretty severe glitches.  So, I
learned how to hack them myself, and here are the fruits of my labor.

Please be warned that this guide is NOT intended to teach you how to hack,
write, or encrypt your own codes.  I assume that you have at least a working
understanding of the following:

- Both decimal (base ten) and hexadecimal (base sixteen) number systems.
- The basic operation of your personal hacking device of choice -- be it an
Action Replay, Codebreaker, Gameshark, or the memory editor of your favorite
- The code types and encryption methods (if any) of your hacking device.

If you do not fully understand any of these topics, please refer to the
Resources section of the APPENDIX.  In this guide, I will simply tell you how
the game deals with the two types of cards, and give you some addresses and
values.  The rest of it is pretty much up to you.  Purely as an example, I'll
also give you the codes I personally use when I play.  However, you'll probably
have a totally different idea of what cards you want in your game.  So, I hope
you find this helpful, but if you want to customize the codes (and I hope you
do), I'm sorry to say that you'll have to learn how to do it on your own.
Don't worry, though, it's not that hard.  ;)

You should also know that all the example codes in this guide are encrypted for
the Pro Action Replay v.3 (PAR3).  This is because:

- It's the hacking device I use,
- In my experience, it's the easiest device to obtain,
- It's easy to find help with encryption,
- And, despite its terribly complicated encryption methods, it has the greatest
flexibility in code types.

I don't recommend trying to decrypt them and translate them to another hacking
device.  This is very complex, and you would probably be better served to use
the basic information in this guide to start from scratch and write your own
codes.  If you're using a codebreaker or emulator, this is particularly easy.

Finally, a note on conventions.  In general, I use the prefix 0x to denote
hexadecimal numbers.  Unformatted numbers are generally decimal.  The exception
to this rule is addresses listed in charts.  I have left off the 0x prefix in
this case for ease of cutting and pasting into encryption software.

II.i. The Basics

There are 224 different map cards that Sora can obtain through standard
gameplay.  This includes the 10 numerical values of the 22 different regular
map cards (red, green, and blue), and the 4 different gold cards.  Each of the
224 cards has an 8-bit (1 byte) slot in main memory where the quantity is
stored.  The first card (Tranquil Darkness 0) is located at 0x0203A8C0.
Addresses increment by 0x01 (1 byte) for each card.  Here's a basic chart of
the addresses for the regular map cards:


0203A8C0 - 0203A8C9 = Tranquil Darkness 0-9
0203A8CA - 0203A8D3 = Teeming Darkness 0-9
0203A8D4 - 0203A8DD = Feeble Darkness 0-9
0203A8DE - 0203A8E7 = Almighty Darkness 0-9
0203A8E8 - 0203A8F1 = Sleeping Darkness 0-9
0203A8F2 - 0203A8FB = Looming Darkness 0-9
0203A8FC - 0203A905 = Premium Room 0-9
0203A906 - 0203A90F = White Room 0-9
0203A910 - 0203A919 = Black Room 0-9


0203A91A - 0203A923 = Martial Waking 0-9
0203A924 - 0203A92D = Sorcerous Waking 0-9
0203A92E - 0203A937 = Alchemic Waking 0-9
0203A938 - 0203A941 = Meeting Ground 0-9
0203A942 - 0203A94B = Stagnant Space 0-9
0203A94C - 0203A955 = Strong Initiative 0-9
0203A956 - 0203A95F = Lasting Daze 0-9


0203A960 - 0203A969 = Calm Bounty 0-9
0203A96A - 0203A973 = Guarded Trove 0-9
0203A974 - 0203A97D = False Bounty 0-9
0203A97E - 0203A987 = Moment's Reprieve 0-9
0203A988 - 0203A991 = Mingling Worlds 0-9
0203A992 - 0203A99B = Moogle Room 0-9

The quantity stored in each regular slot is an 8-bit unsigned integer, ranging
from 0x00-09.  You can hack a larger number than this, but the game logic will
correct your imposed error when you view the card in the Room Synthesis menu,
resetting any integer larger than nine back down to nine.  The game also sets a
limit for the total number of map cards you can collect to 99 (not including
gold cards).  However, you can hack a larger number of total cards without any
problems (as far as I know).

The gold cards are a little more difficult.  There are multiple slots that look
like they give you a gold card, but really don't.  If you try to use one of
these slots, you'll just get something that LOOKS like the card you want, but
doesn't actually work.  Thus far, I haven't found any need to test or hack the
3 "storyline" cards (Key of Beginnings, Key of Guidance, and Key to Truth) and,
honestly, I think to do so would be a bad idea.  It just seems like the kind of
code that could mess up your data very easily.  If you absolutely MUST have a
code for these cards, then I'll just say that the correct addresses are
somewhere in the range of 0x0203A99C - 0203A9BA.  The Key to Rewards card, on
the other hand, is incredibly useful to hack.  The correct address for this
card is:

0203A9BB = Key to Rewards

The slots for gold cards work identically to the regular card slots, except
that the game only expects you to earn one of each.  Therefore, you can hack a
large quantity of them and the game won't reset the number to nine.

I should also mention that these addresses are used for both Sora and Riku
modes.  There are, or course, quite a few map cards that don't normally appear
in Riku mode.  But, this doesn't mean you can't hack them.  So, if you REALLY
have a strong desire to send Riku to a Moogle shop, feel free.  It doesn't seem
to have much effect on his closed deck, though.

II.ii. Sample Codes

These are the codes I use in my personal game.  They give you 99 regular map
cards, with a decent selection of all my favorites, including cards in every
color and numerical value combination (for the purposes of story room synthesis
requirements).  Sora's codes also give you a working Key to Rewards card.  I
recommend you keep these codes turned on constantly.  Remember, they are in
PAR3 encryption.

"Sora Map Cards"

These codes give you the following cards:

Teeming Darkness 0-9 x2

III.i. The Basics

The following information has only been verified for Sora Mode.

Battle cards work very differently from map cards, mainly because there are so
many more of them.  Instead of giving each card its own slot, Sora has 915 card
slots which each hold a single 16-Bit value that identifies which card is in
that slot.  The first address is 0x0203A080.  Addresses increment by 0x02
(surprise surprise, that's 2 bytes, or 16 bits).  The final address is
0x0203A7A4.  In case you're one of those people who don't read paragraphs, and
you're just skimming this guide looking for the charts, here's a truncated one:

0203A080 = First Battle Card slot
0203A082 = Second slot
0203A084 = Third


0203A7A4 = Last Slot

Each slot contains a 16-bit value.  However, only digits 0-2 (the three digits
on the right) of this 16-bit value identify the type of card.  Digit 3 (the
leftmost digit) is used for identifying whether or not the card is premium, and
which decks the card is currently being used in.  So, to clarify, the game
could recognize a maximum of 4,095 (or 0xFFF) different cards (plus one value
for null -- surprisingly, value 0x000 is actually used as a card, and value
0xFFF is used for null, or the absence of a card).  Obviously, the game doesn't
actually use this many cards.  Many of these values represent cards used by
enemies, gibberish used to fill space, or even glitches that will crash your
game (like value 0x232).  I have obviously NOT tested all the values, nor do I
have any desire to.  I have simply found the values for every card that can be
used by Sora (including Friend cards, which normally only appear during
battles).  Hidden in the remaining heap of values, there are probably gems that
might be pretty cool to unearth.  But, if you want to find them, you'll have to
mine them for yourself.

Here is a chart of all the working values I know of (spaces are added to group
cards by type -- they do not necessarily represent gaps in the values):

0FFF = NULL (Empty)

0000 - 0009 = Kingdom Key 0-9

0046 - 004F = Metal Chocobo 0-9
0050 - 0059 = Olympia 0-9
005A - 0063 = Lionheart 0-9

014A - 0153 = Aladdin 0-9
0154 - 015D = Ariel 0-9
015E - 0167 = Jack 0-9
0168 - 0171 = Peter Pan 0-9
0172 - 017B = The Beast 0-9

017C - 0185 = Potion 0-9

01A4 - 01AD = Mega-Ether 0-9
01AE - 01B7 = Elixir 0-9
01B8 - 01C1 = Megalixir 0-9

01C2 - 01C4 = Shadow
01C5 - 01C7 = Soldier
01C8 - 01CA = Large Body
01CB - 01CD = Red Nocturne
01CE - 01D0 = Blue Rhapsody
01D1 - 01D3 = Yellow Opera
01D4 - 01D6 = Green Requiem

01DA - 01DC = Bouncywild
01DD - 01DF = Air Soldier
01E0 - 01E2 = Bandit
01E3 - 01E5 = Fat Bandit
01E6 - 01E8 = Barrel Spider
01E9 - 01EB = Search Ghost
01EC - 01EE = Sea Neon
01EF - 01F1 = Screwdiver
01F2 - 01F4 = Aquatank
01F5 - 01F7 = Wight Knight
01F8 - 01FA = Gargoyle
01FB - 01FD = Pirate
01FE - 0200 = Air Pirate
0201 - 0203 = Darkball
0204 - 0206 = Defender
0207 - 0209 = Wyvern
020A - 020C = Wizard
020D - 020F = Neoshadow
0210 = White Mushroom
0211 - 0213 = Black Fungus
0214 - 0216 = Creeper Plant
0217 - 0219 = Tornado Step
021A - 021C = Crescendo

021D = Guard Armor
021E = Parasite Cage
021F = Trickmaster
0220 = Darkside
0221 - 0223 = Card Soldier (Red)
0224 - 0226 = Card Soldier (Black)
0227 = Hades
0228 = Jafar
0229 = Oogie Boogie
022A = Ursula
022B = Hook
022C = Dragon Maleficent
022D = Riku
022E = Axel
022F = Larxene
0230 = Vexen
0231 = Marluxia


0233 = Lexaeus
0234 = Ansem

You may have noticed that there are multiple values associated with most of the
enemy cards, and that there are multiple Card Soldier cards (in two colors!).
Unlike the gold map cards, all of these values seem to work just fine.

Now, last but not least, there is digit 3 of the value.  I left zeros in this
digit's place in the chart above, just for spacing purposes.  This digit
composes bits 12-15 of the 16-bit value (bit numbering starts with 0).  The
purposes of each bit are shown in the following chart (make sure you're viewing
with a fixed width font):

0 0 0 0
^ ^ ^ ^
| | | |
| | | -> Bit 12 = Set this bit if card is equipped in Deck 1.
| | | 
| | -> Bit 13 = Set this bit if card is equipped in Deck 2.
| |
| -> Bit 14 = Set this bit if card is equipped in Deck 3.
-> Bit 15 = Set this bit if card is premium.

If you don't know much about setting bits, or if you're not sure which cards
are equipped, don't worry too much.  The game actually does a very good job of
correcting any errors with bits 12-14, so I usually don't worry about them.
Just know that you don't want to keep a code active if it affects this digit
(i.e. if it's a 16-bit constant write).  Just turn the code on long enough to
get the cards, then turn it off and save.  In fact, to be sure that you're not
causing any problems, I recommend removing all cards from all of your decks
FIRST, and then applying the code while you're still in the deck construction

Bit 15 is the most useful of this byte.  If you set it to 1, then the card is
premium.  In other words, if you want a premium card, simply add 0x8000 to the
value from the above chart (or just replace the first leading zero with an 8).

One extra bit of advice.  Unlike map cards, you have a very solid limitation to
the number of battle cards you can hack.  There are only 915 slots.  Period.
Not only can you not hack more than 915 cards, the game itself has problems
when you reach this limit.  For some lame reason, the programers neglected to
include a safeguard for when you earn new battle cards with all 915 slots full.
(You know how most RPG's let you choose if you wanna drop an old item to pick
up the new one?  None of that here.)  So, if you fill all 915 slots, you are
done earning cards.  Period.

I ran into trouble with this when I defeated Axel at the end of the game,
believing that I had earned his Enemy card, and saved, only to find that the
game didn't actually give it to me because my slots were full.  If I didn't
own a PAR, I would have been furious -- I would have had to totally start the
game over if I wanted to get this one card.  So, lesson learned.  And, if some
jerk ever tries to tell you that owning a cheat device is stupid, smack them
upside the head and tell them that story.

III.ii. Sample Codes

Here are the codes that comprise my personal card collection.  I've filled all
915 slots, so I broke the codes up into two sections, to make sure I don't
overload my Action Replay.  To activate them, I recommend following this

1. Go to the "Review Decks" screen.
2. Clear all three of your decks.
3. Now, activate "Sora Battle Cards I" (or, a code that gives you at least one
attack card -- you CANNOT leave this menu without putting at least one attack
card in your equipped deck!).
4. Wait a few seconds and then turn the code off.
5. Put one of your NEW attack cards in your equipped deck.
6. Exit this menu.
7. Save.
8. Reset.
9. Now, you can activate the rest of your battle card codes without any
10. Don't forget to save and turn any battle card codes off before you start
changing your decks.

You also should know that I don't like premium cards -- they just don't fit my
personal play style very well.  As a result, none of the cards in these codes
are premium.  If you're a big fan of premium cards, sorry.

"Sora Battle Cards I"

These codes give you the following attack cards:

Kingdom Key 0,9 x12
Three Wishes 0,9 x12
Crabclaw 0,9 x12
Pumpkinhead 0,9 x12
Fairy Harp 0,9 x12
Wishing Star 0,9 x12

IV.i. Extra Codes

I know this is a "Card Hacking" guide, but GameFAQs doesn't have another
hacking guide of any kind for this game, yet, so I thought I'd include the rest
of the codes I use as a tiny little supplemental.  They are related to card
hacking peripherally, I suppose.


Here's the PAR3 enable code for KH:CoM that I stole from Codejunkies.com.  It
may be different than the enable code you use, and that's just fine.  If you
are using a different hacking device then you will definitely need a different
enable code.


"Sora Journal"

Since you'll be hacking all those hard to find map and battle cards, you
probably don't want to waste time searching for them the old fashioned way.  As
a result, Jiminy's Journal will look suspiciously incomplete.  Here's the code
to complete your entire journal, and put those happy flashing Disney logos next
to every entry.  I also stole this from Codejunkies.com.  Please note that I've
tried several versions of this code, and Codejunkies' is the only one I've
found that works.

I haven't bothered testing or hacking codes for Riku's journal, since his is
much easier to complete normally.


"Riku 99"

When you level up Sora, you have to make some customization choices.  There are
three stats you can raise (HP, CP, and Sleights), and you can only maximize
two.  With Riku, on the other hand, you can maximize all three stats (HP, AP,
and DP).  So, I thought I'd write codes to maximize his experience, level, HP,
AP, and DP just as if you had leveled him up manually.  I'm including them here
simply because I felt bad that I didn't have any codes for hacking Riku's
closed deck.


IV.ii. Resources

     Have no idea what hexadecimal is?  Try the first few chapters of this
online course in MIPS Assembly Language (the language of PSX games).  This has
the best and most thorough explanation of hexadecimal and binary numbering
systems I've found.  Plus, understanding an assembly language is always a bonus
in hacking.

     This is the personal page of hacking guru Labmaster.  He's got some
awesome tutorials on both hacking and GBA assembly.  I cannot recommend this
man's work enough!

     Apparently, there was a huge amount of drama between this site and the now
defunct gscentral.com.  Dot org came out on top, and most people seem to be
happy about this.  But, unfortunately, their document and utility sections have
not yet managed to match the former glory of dot com.  I'm not sure they ever
will, either.  So, you have to use the wayback machine to get the following two

     These are the two definitive documents on code hacking.  Each url is two
lines long.  Make sure to enter the entire url into your address bar.  For the
life of me, I can't understand why gscentral.org haven't made getting these
documents back online their #1 priority, but they definitely haven't.  Be
prepared to use IE's "Find" command.

     If you can't find something at gscentral.org, try here.  The focus is
slightly different, but they've got A LOT of stuff!

     Here's an AWESOME place to start if you want to get into emulation.

IV.iii. Version History

Fixed typo -- Sora can maximize up to two stats, not just one.
Sorry for such a minor update.

Fixed minor typographical and spelling errors.
Added "Version History."

Original Release.

IV.iv. Credits

Special thanks to Labmaster for unwittingly sparking my interest in hacking,
and inadvertently teaching me pretty much everything I know about the subject.

Thanks to Codejunkies.com for writing the few working codes I've found.

And, of course, thanks to GameFAQS.com and neoseeker.com for hosting this
