I made a Monster Hunter X (and Generations) quest editor that runs in your web browser :)
It's still very much a work in progress so it's still pretty limited (and ugly looking), but it works.

Current limitations:
  • Only works with decrypted DLC quests.
  • Many of the settings don't have very good descriptions.
  • Small monster info is left in hex because the format is unknown.
  • You have to use other software to proxy quests to the game.
  • Only tested in Firefox on Linux.
To use the quest editor visit: http://svanheulen.github.io/mhxqe
When the page loads, use the "browse..." button ("choose file" if you're using Chrome) to open a quest file from your computer. Once that's open, it will give you options to edit each of the files inside of the quest file. Press one of the "edit..." buttons to view that file and when you're all done editing the files press the "save..." button to save the file.

If you have a question, post it in this thread.
If you find an actual bug, please submit it here: https://github.com/svanheulen/mhxqe/issues

Q: Why doesn't my edited quest show up after importing it?
A: https://github.com/svanheulen/mhx_data_manager/issues/2


The source code is all available here: https://github.com/svanheulen/mhxqe
Pull requests are always welcome, so if you can help improve it, please do! Even just some improvements to the descriptions would be helpful :)

I also released a homebrew to import/export quests directly from the save file (so you don't need to use mhef or a proxy): http://gbatemp.net/threads/release-mhx-data-manager.434848/

Edit:
This supports MHGen now as well :)
(Note: You can't proxy quests into MHGen, use MHX Data Manager to get quests into/out of your save file)

It doesn't even open a proper page for me, if I click on the "http://svanheulen.github.io/mhxqe"-Link.
That's the proper page (Open and Save button). Open a decrypted quest .arc and you will see more options (rem files etc). Like this:

(Was talking about the source code page btw https://github.com/svanheulen/mhxqe, there's the option to download the zip).

Would you mind explaining the process? I used custom quests on 4U, but this seems waaay out of my league.
Well yeah, it's slightly more complex since they changed up the quest format quite a bit and as svan said, currently it's only possible to edit existing, plain-text quest archives. I uploaded a recent event quest archive for you here so you can play around with it: https://dropfile.to/MmZZS

questData: text
setEmMain: boss spawn settings
emSetList: minion settings
rem: reward items
supp: supply items
questData: settings (level, target, ...)

Everything's in quite an experimental stage right now, so maybe finish up the vanilla game first and then check back :P

How do I download this? If I visit the link, it just gives me 2 weird options.
Derp, sorry, I probably should have explained it a little better. The website IS the quest editor, just use the "browse"/"open" button to open the file. From there you can select which part of the file to edit. Once you've made the changes you want, use the save button to save the edited quest.

Do you happen to know the data for the current event quests? (preferably the Uragaan-Quest)

Also, if I edited it, how does it go from there? Upload it via puush and post it via skfu Proxy or something? (Did that a long time ago, so my memory is somewhat fuzzy)

You can use my mhef code to download/decrypt/encrypt the quests: http://gbatemp.net/threads/mhx-dlc-encryption.404331/
There's a file on the server called "eventQuestList.bin" with all the quests listed in it (use a hex editor to view it) and the quests are in a folder called "arc/quest"
For instance the Uragaan quest can be downloaded from "arc/quest/q1010004.arc"

Also, if I edited it, how does it go from there? Upload it via puush and post it via skfu Proxy or something? (Did that a long time ago, so my memory is somewhat fuzzy)
Exactly, and don't forget to re-encrypt it.
I'm also going to make a 3DS homebrew for extracting/adding quests directly to your save file (which might be easier then using a proxy), but not sure when I'll have that done.

Major update, you can now...
  • Create a quest from scratch using the "New..." button.
  • Add or remove files from the quest.
  • Change the order of the files in the quest.
  • Add or remove small monsters.

umm.... What's the difference between scale and scale table? Does table work with scale range?
----------------
I solve it

I got all of the variable names from the game's code, so not all of them make sense. For those variables, I haven't experimented with them yet, but I believe you're right. The scale appears to be a percentage and the scale table is probably a reference to a size range (probably in another file).

Also watch out on certain things in the quests, I had an english titled quest and after completing it my game would lock up every time i tried opening my Guild Card, thank god i make alot of backups. Just letting you guys know.
The same thing happened when trying to make a quest name that was particularly long, even in Katakana etc. It worked fine using "Ibento" in Katakana or small words, maybe theres a character limit. I would just leave the names default until we figure it all out.

edit: Do note that i was only editing "Title" in the quest for these situations. I never touched "Unknown" the box above it. Some of those titles come things like "Women's Regional Finals: Gore Magala" so maybe those are hidden titles for if the quests are used in MH Tournaments in Japan.

Hmmm, was the title unusually long? Either way, you should be able to fix that (without having to restore a backup) by just doing regular quests until the problem title gets pushed off your hunter's log.
