Field Training Glitch - Unlimited Map Editing
With this glitch you can edit Campaign and War Room maps. The changes are saved only in the in-game (during battle) save, not permanently in the cartridge.
- Go to Field Training and play the Naval Forces mission.
- Lose by letting Olaf destroy either your T-Copter or your Lander.
- Go to the Design Maps, deploy an Orange Star unit and destroy it.
- Your screen will be glitched now. You can go to a saved Campaign or War Room map and edit it. Don't forget to save the changed maps using the in-game save, not the Design Maps save.
- To return to normal, just turn on/off the GBA.

Skip field training
If you want to skip field training and get into the war campaign, map maker or etc., instead of winning every battle in field training, just go to the last one and beat it. It'll save time, and you can always go back to play it any time on the main menu.

Easier final battle against Sturm
To make the final mission a lot easier, allow Sturm to capture the Airport just north of the Orange Star base, and make sure you have Missiles in range of the Airport panel. Sturm will spend 22000 per turn building a Bomber that you can immediately destroy before use, making him much less of a threat. With Sturm wasting 22k per day making Bombers, his army is much weaker and easier to manage, no matter which allies you end up having in this battle.
