Talking Amulets and Armor Character Editor

So I decided to make editor to Amulets and Armor.
I know it isn't a popular game, but it's a good practice.

Current version is v0.2
You can download it from here:
http://yoni0505.blogspot.com/2011/06...ditor-v02.html

v0.2 includes:
Fix for a critical bug

v0.1 includes:
Edit name
Edit password
Edit money on you character
Edit money in your bank

your saved files found in:
...\Amulets and Armor\S0000000\


Image:



I would like to know what you think about it.
Also I want to find more games that could use editor, if you know any I would be glad to hear about them!

Might be hard or not.. Don't know.
But perhaps a Character editor for SpellForce? (Preferably for the Platinum Edition they are selling @ GOG )

You can find the Character data in:
"my documents"\SpellForce\SAVE (And Subfolders.)

The exact Location of "my documents" depends of course which windows you're using. (XP vs Vista & 7)

And Yes. I know it's cheating to use an editor.

Yeah, Amulets and Armor isn't a known game.
I'm checking out SpellForce right now, I'll see if it could use an editor.
I need to see if I there is already an editor, and if I can find info about the structure of the save files, and if it use any encryption.

What program did you use to write that editor? I can't get the Delphi I was used to use in school, and I don't get along well with Lazarus. I did want to make an editor for Princess Maker 2 even though there is one already. At least I have some more values, I think.

Ah, I see you used Microsoft Visual Studio? That's not good, you need .NET Framework 4 to run the editor. And for my editor I don't want to have to have that DLL file.

Yes, I used Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 to write it.
For the runtime DLL, you can ship it with the program. I know it's isn't aesthetical, but I believe no one will mind it.

I believe most windows computers have updated .NET framework.

I know it isn't ideal, but it will do the job

Also I would recommend you trying C++.
It got a large amount of supported libraries.
Also Visual C++ have a thing that called "Windows Forms" which do all the dirty job of writing the code for windows components.
I used it in my editor all the graphical components in my editor and the file selection.

As far as my experiences go, .NET Framework only has manual updates, and most people don't do more than automatic updating. Even I had only v3.5, and only because I needed it for one specific program - which fact annoyed me, and I hesitated a longer time. .NET Framework slows down the PC and is mostly unnecessary.

Half of the people don't have v4.

Tell me the ones you have and I'll add them in.

It seems you have all the values I have, but didn't implement them into your editor. I have worked on my list again but are not finished yet. I can give you the list if you want. I will probably make my own editor similar to PM2edit, with some more values and perhaps some in-game graphics. If I find a suitable programming program, that is. The additional values are not worth to do an own editor, but I see it as an programming exercise.
