Utilities: Lode Funner - Level Editor for NES Lode Runner
« on: February 05, 2008, 05:31:08 pm »

Update By: Disch

Lode Funner is a level editor for the NES version of the classic Lode Runner.  Features include the following:

  • Easy click-and-drag interface
  • No hardcoded offsets (makes editor very flexible)
  • Includes tool for expanding ROM (allowing for more space for levels)
  • Level importing/exporting
  • Full source included — source uses wxWidgets, so no OS specific code (should be easily portable to other platforms)


Staff Note - This wonderful level editor is also archived here for your convenience.

Wow awsome, and to think I was making a graphics hack of Lode Runner a while back, I'll be making some levels now too. From what I tinkered with for a few minutes, making levels'll be a breeze. Thanks Disch...  :thumbsup:

Glad you like it.  Hope people will get good use out of it.

I just love deciphering interesting compression schemes... and Lode Runner's was really interesting.  Normally I hate making editors, but I liked the format so much I just had to make one for this game  ^^

What was the newest version of Lode Runner in the US? I don't think its recent ports have come out here.

This is great.  ;)  :o expander is really necessary, without it it's impossible to make normal levels.  8)
