A descent hex editor???
*ahem* im new so i don't know if this is the right place to post, but does anyone know of a hex editor where you can type in some text, then (using a .tbl file) converts the text to hex and finds it in the rom? i've tried loads of hex editors, but never found one that does this.

its probably the feature i've most wanted from a hex editor.

PS. is zophar becoming more alive? its seemed dead to me for a few years.

I suggest that this thread be moved to Rom Hack. Up to you guys though.

I suggest using WindHex for table file support.

I use Hex Workshop for anything else.

yup WindHex or Thingy is what you are searching for.

I still use Vi.

thanks for the suggestions, but in windhex, hexecute, hex workshop, thingy32 and loads others, it loads the table file but if i search for "example" it won't find it even if its in the rom. am i doing something wrong?

when it comes to tables I use translhextion myself, although it a bit on the buggy side and it handles large files like an anorexic at a hot dog eating contest.

Does vi have hex editing? hexedit is like vi for hex...

Yep, Vi has a hex editor.

Edit: Sorry, just to make it clear I mean ViM, not pure Vi.

Niew64 was made to support N64 images with conversion from hex to ASCII/text to MIPS disassembly. I haven't used it to edit images as much as I have just about any file I liked experimenting with. As for features of course a couple are extra outside of the purpose of N64 image editing, but I prefer this thing over the $200 VEDIT hex editor. To me it is the equivalent of 010 Edit except it's a console app and it's free.

Niew64 is definitely descent, and it's the best freeware one I know of.

I'm quite surprised that no one even attempted to flame me correctly. And I thought there was people here who know how to do such a thing.

Seriously, if people intend to use foul language, they could at least try to make it hurtful. :rolleyes:

Winhex is another one I haven't tried, but more people use that than the limited cool-looking Niew64. I just use Niew since it's good enough for me and free; Winhex is for more experienced users. :P

PZYR0 07-14-2008 03:32 PM

ok, thanks for suggestions, i'll try some.
WindHex (or WinHex, wichever one i have) seems to be working ok-ish anyway.
oh, mudlord, you sound like a complete A$$WH0Lú
