How to make a level editor?
« on: October 16, 2016, 04:32:27 am »
What is the process of doing this? I see custom levels of SM64 and BK64. How did they do this?

To make a level editor you basically need to know a programming language to make the GUI in.
If you want the editor to run under windows you most likely want to know/learn C#, C++ or Java.

Next you want to learn a shit-load about whatever game you are making the editor for.

If you feel overwhelmed by that - maybe you are better off looking for a editor somebody already built for the game you want to edit.

For SM64 - check out the tools section on SMWC: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&s=tools&u=0&n=1&o=date&d=desc

For SM64 for the DS - check out this forum on Kuribo64: http://kuribo64.net/board/forum.php?id=32
