This editor seems of high enough quality that you really should make it an official entry in the utilities section.

I think I missed something. "Submission hurdles"?

I'll be submitting after I add Super Command expansion, and make sure the kinks are worked out.

This is a great tool, and i've used it a lot so far, but I have a question - I somewhat regularly start getting unhandled exception errors after making miscellaneous edits and have to backtrack to an earlier version of the rom to continue using it. Here's an example of the error I'm getting currently:

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** Exception Text **************
System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.
   at HiTech.PluginMain.GetRecords()
   at Temporal_Flux.MDIForm.OnOpen(Object sender, EventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.Forms.MenuItem.OnClick(EventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Command.Invoke()
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmCommand(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)



Do you have any ideas?  Thanks!

Were you modifying enemy tech animations before that? If not, what changes had been made?

Yes, I have updated enemy techs on numerous occasions. Mostly just coefficients, though.

The animations, or the control/effect headers?

Can you send me a patch with the crash in it?

Hi there. I just want to report an exception I get while saving in Items Targeting. No data was written to the rom, though. I recently switched to beta18 but the last version I was using was 13, and it happened in that one as well.

************** Exception Text **************
System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: source
   at System.Array.Copy(Array sourceArray, Int32 sourceIndex, Array destinationArray, Int32 destinationIndex, Int32 length, Boolean reliable)
   at System.Array.Copy(Array sourceArray, Int64 sourceIndex, Array destinationArray, Int64 destinationIndex, Int64 length)
   at HiTech.ItemTargetingRecord.PlugSave()
   at FluxShared.SaveRecord.Save()
   at Temporal_Flux.MDIForm.OnSave(Object sender, EventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.Forms.MenuItem.OnClick(EventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.Forms.MenuItem.MenuItemData.Execute()
   at System.Windows.Forms.Command.Invoke()
   at System.Windows.Forms.Command.DispatchID(Int32 id)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmCommand(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.ScrollableControl.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.ContainerControl.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Form.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

Also, forgive me if you already know this, but the Items list seems to be off by one. I don't know anything about the animations part, but the Targeting is for the next Item.

I am trying to make the hyperether do for mp what the lapis does for hp, so it's not one of those useless items we always seem to have at the end. ;)

I will look into the issue shortly. For the item conversion, you'll need to use Itemizer to change the effect.

Hey Mauron, Hi-Tech question for you.

I've been using this to make slight adjustments to techs with no problem. Tonight I decided to swap *Life and *Lightning2 in Crono's tech list. Basically I just replicated each tech in the other tech's spot. Know what I mean? Well, the game now loads and plays normally... but crashes to black screen if I access Crono's tech list.

Not asking you to go through this line by line with me. Just wondering if this error suggests to you something else I need to do, or something in particular I should look for, in the changes I made?

Been using all of your plugins for this and your work is top notch. Thanks!
