    This is great, I can tell you put a lot of work into this.

    Item editing will be useful for testing mods I work on.

      Fantastic work here.

      Should we expect item editing & adding to be in by tomorrow?

      Keep it up, very nice tool!

        Works perfectly fine now. Nice editor, Gear. Can't wait to see the editing working.

          Soon, i'm tackling a bug with really long save files, cant seem to get the numbers quite right for somethings

            Looks incredible! Very nice features, hope you keep developing.

            Unrelated to features question: Will you release the files? Are you planning or have you considered making this an open source tool? Maybe give a protected version away? Allow other people to host it? Because of your bandwidth comment about us using the website.

              I'll probably keep this version closed for a little while, it's eventually going to have to be redone when they reorganize the save format in the future.

                Yeah I understand that, I meant a release when the game enters a state where changes aren't that big :) Thanks for that!

                  You can now edit items, their quantities and their properties. Use at your own risk, make a backup
                  If you know the identifier for an item you can type it into an empty slot.

                  I'm sure there are bugs, let me know if you find any!

                    @Gear you've got a potential security exploit by not sanitizing data parsed from the save file. I uploaded a character with some HTML in it's name and the HTML gets parsed normally, which could lead to unwanted results.

                        Idk y, but I can't even change my character's name, if I try to replace the save when the game is still working, it acts like completely nothing happened, if I try to close the game before I replace saves, then launch it, I just can't see my saves, it acts like I don't have any...

                          works just fine on how i want to edit. thanks. :D
                          got it bookmarked for multiple use and can't wait for more updates.

                            Wait, can I make 2handed weapon 2 be 1handed with this save editor? Or it's not in yet?

                              You can try :p see what happens and let me know

                              Can you tell me the name of the file? I'll check it out, I think there's. Bug with large inventories

                                This definitely needs more credit! Great work you've done, but can you maybe add a list of all the item names? (In case I want to add a new item I don't have in inventory)

                                  That's something i'd like to do eventually, if someone has a list of all item names (and ideally their image paths) I could get that in a lot faster!

                                    There are A LOT of item names, man.

                                    As in, well over 2000 at least, I think..

                                    I do however, have most of the techs, except for the Metroid Ball.

                                      Yeah, the techs I posted up there are ripped names right out of their recipes.

                                      Might work, I haven't tested them, but creating custom recipes with them as the item to craft worked/works.
