Generator? That's an outdated emulator. Richard doesn't update that one anymore. Use Genesis Plus instead.

I realize this topic has been dead for quite some time, however...PVM EditThis program is apparantly a bitch to find, so I uploaded it to my website so it's somewhat easier to find. This program edits the textures in Sonic Adventure: DX. Yep, that's pretty much it.

You're free to add these utility descriptions I wrote up for Sonic Stadium, if you'd like.

Me said:

UTILITIESThese will be sorted by section, use, and whatnot. Hopefully you should be clear on what each utility does, and how you can use it to achieve your means.ESSENTIALHex Editors:Use these to do your main dirty work. Change variables, copy/paste data, etc. You'll NEED one of these down the line, so I suggest you get comfortable with them.Hex Workshop - The reccomended hex editor. Has many handy features, and is generally used by most ROM hackers. It's shareware, but the smarter lot of you will find a way around that. ;) (if not, PM me and I'll hook you up)XVI32 - Freeware, simplistic hex editor with the basic needed features to do what you need. Supports wildcard value searching, which is bloody handy, and is unique to this hex editor.Compressors/Decompressors:Use these to decompress art, music, and the like -- any compressed data in a ROM -- and edit them in thier uncompressed forms. And of course, you'll need to recompress the data afterwards, so... =PThe Sega Data Compressor (TSDC) - A frontend for a batch of compression/decompression programs for the Nemesis (Art), Kosinski (Level Art/Mappings/etc), Enigma (Special Stages/etc), and Saxman (Music in Sonic 2 Final) compression formats.MD Programs Pack - Primitive version of the above. A small feature worth noting though is the Nemesis art searcher, which allows you to search for Nemesis compressed data in other games that may use the compression format.MULTI-PURPOSE EDITORSSonED v.50B - The last version of the original SonED. SonED is a level art, level mappings, level layout, level palette, as well as other level aspects, editor. It is highly reccomended to all beginners and experienced hackers alike, and will no doubt be one of the most useful tools you will ever need.SonED2 v1.01 - A newer, sleeker, more featured incarnation of SonED designed for editing split disassemblies of Sonic games via a unique "projects" system. Boasts a simplified art editor, as well as a new collision editor. If you learn to use this, it's definitely worth using over the original.Esrael Sonic Editor (ESE) v2.40 - A multi-purpose utility that supports a wide variety of editable aspects - Special stages, level layout/art/mappings, title cards, level select names, palettes, etc. Being an earlier, discontinued version of the program, it supports some things ESEII does not. It's best to have both.Esrael Sonic Editor II (ESEII) v0.05 - Enhanced version of the above, with some extra features such as a level porter, and a better art editor -- even a built in hex editor with text support! Reccomended.GRAPHICSSonik Sprite 1.5 Beta - Paint-esque uncompressed sprite editor for Sonic 1, Sonic 2 (beta/final), and Sonic 3. Supports assembled versions of all sprites, making art editing jobs easier for you. Also supports a scripting system, so you can add your own sprite entries if they aren't currently supported (for ANY game, by the way).Tile Layer Pro - General uncompressed art editor for multiple platforms, including Genesis. Works by browsing the ROM and editing the art in 8x8 blocks, which can be put together via the Tile Arranger for easier editing. Essential for editing compressed art (after being decompressed, of course).ChaoSaX Pal - A palette editor for Sonic 1-3K. Supports, copying/pasting palettes as well as easy editing. Reccomended for beginners and experienced hackers alike due to usefulness.HivePal v0.1 - Another palette editor. Similar to ESE in appearance, but takes a more graphic approach to color matching and choosing. Also includes a palette browser, so you can easily find palettes in any ROM, and subsequentially edit them.SOUNDSonic QX - Music editor for Sonic 2 Beta. Boasts features such as a MIDI importer, voice editor, sample exporter, among other things. The documentation is of particular interest, as it contains a lot of useful info about the YM2612.Sonic One Music Editor (SOME) - Basic music editor for Sonic 1. Supports voice editing as well as channel editor editing, and also includes a voice preview button, so you can hear your changes before you apply them. Very handy. Reccomended.TUTORIALSSSRG Tutorials - Covering the following subjects... Level Design for Beginners, Tile Layer Pro, Compressed Art, IPS Patching & Palette Guide. All good for what a growing boy needs.
