Greetings.It's possible that you've heard that
I've been developing my own chao editor for SADX PC. I started it a long time ago, but I've recently been working on it much more. Well, it's finally complete!
I've created a new website to host my various chao projects, and I've made a section just for this program: http://chao.tehfusion.co.uk/sadx-pc-chao-editor
You can check there for the full overview, features, screenshots, downloads, updates, and the version history. However, for your convenience, I'll also include some basic information in this thread.Introduction
Those of you who play SADX PC have probably tried GerbilSoft's SADX PC Memory Editor v2.00 BETA
at some point. It works, and provides you with some useful editing abilities. However, it also has a lot of problems. It's built on legacy technology (Visual Basic 6), and as a result it can be very difficult to even get running; for example, you are forced to download a library file and register it through the command line, and aren't given any instructions to do this. It also has few features and a very basic interface. In order to edit your chao, you must select its slot number from a drop-down box, remember to click "Read Chao", change the values, and then remember to click "Write Chao". It is a long and tedious process.
My new editor seeks to correct these problems. It has been developed using the latest modern technology, and runs on the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile. You may already have this useful framework installed, but if not, the setup file will take care of it for you. When you run the program, you should find that it has a very user-friendly interface and is easy to work with. It will read and write changes to your chao data instantly, and provides you with a significant level of control.Features
For a full list of features, check out the features page
on my website. I'll give you a basic summary here, though.
For a start, my program does everything that GerbilSoft's one does (except for things that aren't related to chao). It also lets you control the following:
- Chao ageing speed.
- Second evolutions.
- Happiness (the other editor claims to do this, but it's incorrect).
- Number of reincarnations.
- Remaining adult lifespan.
- Bonds with the different characters.
- Emotions and actions, such as crying, sleeping, or jumping with joy.
- Intelligence and luck stats.
- Learnt animal behaviours.
- Medal worn on chest.
- Collected animals that are in the gardens.
- Fruits that are in the gardens.
- Hats that are in the gardens.
- The items for sale in the Black Market.
Finally, you can also right-click on any of your chao in the editor to get a special menu. This menu will let you cut, copy, and paste your chao between slots, delete your chao, or create a new egg in the slot. It will also let you export your chao to a .chao file, which can serve as a permanent backup or allow you to share it with your friends!
You can also import chao from .chao files into any slot you wish. This way, you don't need to replace your entire garden save file to borrow somebody else's chao.Screenshots
It's always nice to see what something looks like before you download it, so here are a few screenshots of the program. I'll put them in a spoiler tag to save space. Check out the screenshots page
on my website for more.System requirements
My program only really has two system requirements.Operating system:
For the greatest user experience, you should be running either Windows Vista or Windows 7. However, you can still use this with Windows XP, as long as you have at least Service Pack 2 installed. It might not look as good, but it'll work..NET Framework:
As this program is written for the .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile, you will need that installed. It's a small download, far smaller than the full .NET Framework 4.0. If you are using the setup exe (which is recommended), you don't have to worry about it; it'll all be taken care of for you. If you are using the zip archive, you can download the .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile here
Interested in my program? Want to download it? Just head over to the downloads page
on my website. I recommend you choose the setup exe option.Feedback
Have any opinions? Have any feedback to give me? Found a bug? Just post here or contact me through any other method. As the very first release, there may be some bugs; however, I have thoroughly tested it and haven't yet found any. This program will be regularly updated as bugs are reported and fixed, or as new hacking discoveries are made.
