Any suggestions on features you would like to see?

Included in the attachment is a simple ROM/RAM map.

Keep in mind I suck at programing and hacking so don't judge it too harshly. :oops:

Any Ideas on a name for he editor that isn't taken....

Not comprehensive or anything, but you might want to take a look at this https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... p=drivesdk

EDIT
Hey! I use C# too! That makes us and most other people on the atlas :nicework:

^ I am using C++ not C#. Thanks for the link. Here is a new version. There are 16 edits you can make now. Just click the buttons and see what appears in the list box to the right.

Any thoughts are welcome...

I have a question regarding this https://i.imgur.com/fPE1VYO.png Can animals go to levels like TuT? I imagine not. The game hard codes which levels an animal is allowed in. At the start of each level, $0x7e1e15 is loaded by an array at 0x01d102, indexed by $0x7e003e. I forget which bit is the animal bit, but you can easily figure this out by looking at some of the indexes. $0x7e1e15 is a value of various flags. Be careful to only modify the animal bit! At least 1 of those flags deals with which palette to use. Whether a darker variant or regular.

I'm most interested in some of those other options! Ngl

Do I have it wrong? I'm using Addresses = 0x8394, 0x3883CB this for keeping Animals after a level. I tested it with a few levels. seems to work ok? I'm assuming water levels won't work....

I don't have your program to check... just beat 1-1 with rambi. Try entering 1-2. If it works, that check is done after clear so you are good for all other levels. Also, just test the feature in water levels. It's interesting :) Or try beating a water level on enguarde and bringing him elsewhere :) It's fun

There's an error with text editing by the way. If you don't change all, the defaults are weird https://i.imgur.com/K5o659l.png

That's not an error but by design. The defaults are numbered in order they appear in the game. It made it easy to check that each level modification works. If you think that is weird. what do you suggest the defaults be? Should they be left blank,the German default or the English level name?

Those are special characters. I didn't test for that. Most people probably won't use those anyways.


Other then that. Does it work fine?

Thanks again for testing!
