Utilities: Eisfrei - Herzog Zwei ROM Editor
« on: May 04, 2008, 08:11:47 pm »

Update By: hugues

Eisfrei is an open source ROM editor for the Sega Genesis game Herzog Zwei.

The first release allows editing of text, unit attributes, order attributes, and tile-based graphics. With this editor you can make the game much easier, much more difficult, or create some interesting 2-player scenarios.

Staff Note: Eisrei is also available here on RHDN.

Nice editor! If you're going to work on it more I suggest a little more advanced sprite editing, like viewing the actual palette and changing it, and also being able to see the full sprite as it is in-game with the 8x8 tile you're working on highlighted.
I'm a bit interested in making a thunder force 2 or 3 style graphics update to the game.

Thanks! I'll be the first to admit that the sprite editing is a bit rough. In the documentation on the home page I list those exact suggestions as potential ways to improve it  :) The tile editor works well for fonts but obviously needs some work for sprites.
