Welcome gentlemen/ladies to a project I've been working on for a decent amount of time. After about a year of not actually working on it until a week or two ago, I am finally able to say I am happy with LALE and what I have created to the point where I believe it is ready for a public release. As of right now I do not know if I will continue to update it with features; however, I will fix any bugs that are found with the program.
LALE or Link's Awakening Level Editor (very original name) is a user friendly editor I have been working on. It is very easy to use and everything is loaded 100% from the ROM making it a proper editor.
It is stated in the readme file, but I will state it in this post as well:
The Link's Awakening Level Editor (LALE) is an editor created by Fatories and is designed to edit a "Legend of Zelda, The - Link's Awakening DX (U) (V1.2) [C][!]" ROM. The editor is based around this version of the game and using any other ROM could and most likely will result in many errors.
Please make sure you use this version of the game when using my editor otherwise and reports of bugs will be inaccurate.
I would like to thank Lin because without him this editor would not have been made because he was the one who so kindly helped me learn Gameboy Assembly and provided some information on Link's Awakening so I could create an editor for it.
Enough talk about the editor, how about you see it in action and judge for yourself. If you have any suggestions please feel free to tell me.
A link to the most recent video I have made of LALE:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxp_PpxPsDo
If the video is too long and you hate me for some reason then here are some screen shots: (Outdated)
- Map editing including map data
- Text editor
- Chest editor
- Warp editor
- Minimap editor
- Enemy/object placement
- Initial start position editor
- Sign pointer editor
- Owl statue editor
- Palette editor.
- Sprite bank editor.
And many more little features for hacking Link’s Awakening. I will provide updates as I add new features to the editor.
