MibiNESTools: Create CHR files and nametables easily.

Post by Mibi88 »

I found that that a lot of editors for CHR files and nametables suck: Tilemolester is unstable (on linux at least), and Lightbox is very primitive.

That's why I started making a tool that is powerful, while also being stable and cross platform.

I will also add a level editor for my future game, but currently it does nothing: there is just a button on the level editor tab.

The CHR editor and the nametable editor are both fully functional, so I used them to make the title screen of my new game.

The source code of my tool is available on github: https://github.com/mibi88/MibiNESTools

I just released the first alpha version, but found some bugs right after it. I fixed them on the dev branch.

(I don't understand why but the screenshot I uploaded appeared as blank when I attach it to the post)

EDIT: I managed to add the screenshot as a gif

I made a lot of changes, I plan to release the v.1.0a2 soon.

I added support for plugins, added a code editor an now editors can be opened and closed.
