DIY Oddballz Hex-Editors



The first thing you will need before making a new Oddballz breed is to download editing tools. I recommend using a combination of the programs, centering around Vim for for the majority of the work [ is 'replace' - the only command you'll need, well apart from save (from the menu) ], axe to extract bitmaps and notepad for *looking* (only) at the four simple files.

For editing characters
Hexedit (2)
Has a great character replace facility
Use for all main breed editing, User friendly
Hex Workshop
Handy little program, but shareware
Use to extract bitmaps and sound segments
Programmers' File Ed
