Thank you so much!
I see the problem now-mine doesn't have a header. I will look for one with a header. Now I also know there's also an easier way, and use a program to extract the data-including the RNC files! Now, I am on my next problem-with ROMulan, to learn how to make a proper batch file to extract data from a game-even though I have the documentation, it doesn't give any examples. But I will solve it at another thread, if I choose to do it that way.

I don't think I will do the hard way, with extracting the data manually, but I will do it the easy way-by using an extraction program, in this case ROMulan-as it actually works with
my computer and is easy to use.

Never mind! I still can't do it with ROMulan, because when I told it to extract the offset I wanted, it extracted all data up to 1ed7e
and still can't get to that offset, not because of the header, but because most hex editors only counts 0 at the end, and even when it is at 1ecd7e it only shows TWO numbers, even when I changed the settings. And NO RNC numbers. It's like I can't find a way to view the offsets IN BETWEEN the 0s at the end. Please help! I have been tired of this whole RNC block and am starting to think that one of you should extract those files like the manual of the editor (EWJ2Edit) says, in BIN files, and not only for Earthworm Jim 2, but also for Earthworm Jim 1 and Aladdin. I'm feeling hopeless.
It didn't help, and I can't find a single RNC editor that (a) works with Windows 8 (No, I don't want to switch to Windows XP to fix the problem) or (b) is easy enough to use. For the previous person who commented, you should have been more specific about HOW TO GET TO those offsets, or an example of an up-to-date and easy to use editor. Please help in any of the following ways:
*Extract all the RNC files of EWJ2, and optionally, EWJ1 and Aladdin. (Recommended)
*In a picture or video tutorial, specifically show how to copy those RNC files and get to the offsets (No, it's not a header problem).
* Show me a link to download a decent RNC file extractor that is compatible with Windows 8, doesn't require an install, and isn't a command line.
Sorry it's so long. But PLEASE HELP!!!
