    Current Revision: 5 (14 FEB 2013)
    Dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7ep4d317xco4oyb/dB1TEyNgfN

    The above Dropbox is where all of my editors will be placed. I will not upload them to other websites, but you may if you want.

    About the program:
    ISE is a modular state editor that allows editing of emulator save states or emulator memory directly. In order to function, it requires 'Pandora.dll' to be in the same directory as itself.

    Editing NDS states requires an additional module, 'zlib1.dll', which is created by Pandora if it is not already present. This module is used to compress and decompress DeSmuME save states.

    You must have the latest .NET Framework installed to run this program. You can get it here: http://www.microsoft.com/net/download.aspx

    About the editors:
    The editors are simply class modules (*.dll) and are loaded automatically when a valid state is opened. They must be in the same directory as ISE.

    Bug Reporting:
    If you find any bugs, please report them in this thread. Extensive error handling is included within making reporting errors very simple. Please only post bugs in this thread. Any other business should be sent to me via PM.

    When an error happens, it is logged. You can view this log by clicking the "Information" button in the upper-right hand corner of ISE, then choosing the "Log" tab. Right-clicking on the log will allow you to save the information to a file. Attaching this file to your post may help narrow down the bug.

    Game Requests:
    My goal is to add a new editor as soon as I can. If you have a game you wish to see included, please pm me and let me know. I am currently working on updating my previous editors to be compatible with the new revisions of ISE and Pandora.

    Thread Guidelines:
    - DO NOT post requests for games to be added. Send these requests via PM.

    What to post in this thread:
    - DO post bugs found. Please include the entire error message received and attach the log file, if possible.

    Please keep this thread clean. I don't want to sift through pages of game requests and other unnecessary posts to find bug reports.

    Changelog (Isaac):
    Changelog (Pandora):

    I lol'd at the reading ability of the people in this thread.

    This is a seriously impressive app. I probably won't use it, since I'd rather beat these games legitimately, but I'm impressed nonetheless. I'll be even more wowed if you can really keep up the pace of one per week like you're hoping; that seems like quite a daunting task.

    I wouldn't blame you if you ignored the pokemon requests. It's quite a daunting task to make a pokemon save editor.

    Especially considering two posts in this thread now have the "Please PM me if you have any requests" in them.

    Stop posting games requests her when he said to PM him.

    Back on topic, what exact does this save editor edit? The file type? (.sav, .nds.sav, .dsv, etc.) In-game things like LionEditor for War of the Lions?

    Windows 7 32-bit here, program loads fine. Just extracted the files to a folder on desktop "Isaac" and ran the program. Didn't try editing a sav yet though.

    Maybe a Zelda save editor would be nice?
    I don't know, as I don't use save editors other than pokesav, and I only use that to get the 3 starters easier, as I could've wasted alot of time trading between 2 DSes

    But anyways, This is nice, I think you could package in Pokesav and use a link to make it run that program when the "Pokemon" selection is selected. I think PokeSav is opensource but I'm not sure, so you might have to request permission from the authors first.

    Just so people know, I won't add other people's editors into my program. The whole point of this project is to complete a personal feat. Also, Pokemon editors are pretty low, priority-wise. There are already editors available for Pokemon games.

    I will update the main post to reflect what I want this thread to be used for.

    Also, if a mod reads this, could you please delete any posts that request a game? I specifically asked for such requests to be sent via pm so they do not clutter this thread. Thank you.

    Thanks to everyone that has shown interest in this project. :D

    And to think I even put the note about PMing you in the front-page news... christ people don't read.

    Tubby28, I'm the one that uploaded it to filetrip, if the author doesn't want to bother updating it I'm sure other people will.
