NES Screen Tool is very useful utility for designing screens for NES/Famicom games. You load pre-designed character ROM banks of a certain size and use them to build a screen, palettes and attribute tables. You can also do edits to the character ROM tiles as needed.
It’s very useful for building single one screens, such as title screens. Where, you build the screen and then trim it and adjust the data slightly and insert back into the ROM.
It’s more meant to be used in a NES demo/game from scratch. Although, as I explained above, can be used for hacking purposes as well.
There is also a RLE option and the code to use in a NES demo/game and perhaps can be used in a hacked game as well. Will take some modification.
