Unhappy 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.

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.

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.
