Hello everyone, it has been a rather long time since I've been active here.
Over the years I've worked on modding several games, the main three being Final Fantasy IV, Ocarina of Time, and .hack//Infection. I have copious amount of notes regarding these games but because my interests are often outside what an editor can do I normally have to hex edit. That's fine for small portions of simple data, but games like Ocarina of Time should really have a GUI for monster's HP, their damage tables, and how much damage they deal, that sort of thing, This goes double for .hack// which has stats, tables, skills, treasure lists, and event commands that can be easily manipulated, but it is burdensome to try and do anything large scale with that many variables with just the Hex Editor.
Alas though I pounded away at finding the information, no editor-maker ever showed up to make these matters easily accessible for the burgeoning modder. Therefore if you want something done, you have to do it yourself. Unfortunately I am no coder and don't exactly know how to go about making a GUI for any potential program. Is there a template around of that sort of thing, or would I have to create one from scratch? Any help I could be given would be much appreciated.
