This week, at another Super Mario Brothers X forum, an user came up and asked:
He wrote:How do I change the names of the characters on the "Start Game" screen?
Another user told him to learn hex editing. I realized that was a great idea. Make hex editing simpler for SMBX users who want to make standalone releases for their episodes.
I proudly announce:
SMBX Editor
This program will do all hex editing for you based on my research.

Planned system requirements:
  • 1MB of disk space
  • Windows XP or later running .NET Framework 3.5

Planned features:
  • Being able to edit all strings
  • Edit all screens
  • Edit some controls
  • Extract and edit hardcoded graphics

Current features:
  • Edits all strings in the start screen

1) you would try to build it under .NET Framework 2.0 (I think, you don't uses extra-fresh features to do those tricks on C#/VB.NET) to avoid downloading over 140 MB of a shit to take working of a 30 KB sized tool. Also .NET Framework 2.0 works on Windows 98 ;-)
2) I would name it as "SMBX String Re-Hexing tool" or something, because "SMBX Editor" mainly is built-in editor of SMBX Engine and names are collided and people are confused
3) We are as LunaLUA developers are doing ability to customize most of hardcoded strings via INI-files to avoid re-hexing of the exe's, so, this tool would be a LunaLUA developers side tool or a tool for people who still trying to re-hex vanilia SMBX built.

This tool is very useful to translate the main game.
I listen to energic music:
All kinds of metal.
Electronic music: Hard House, Hardstyle, Hardcore, Frenchcore, Terrorcore and anything that with ends in -core.
Best track of 2018: Cryogenic - Mot3rf$ck3r (wear earprotection when listenting to this).

I hope to be a major contributor of PGE when I'm more advanced in my engineering.

but limitation is ASCII-only characters if you will don't replace font and you must ... save internally wrong text which in true is remapped replacements of ASCII-characters, however this is a strong workaround. Unicode fonts support (or even just a support of additional font maps to don't replace exist and allow printing more characters) are still needed :P
