    Hex Editor Programs

    Hi,

    Could someone please recommend a really good HEX editing program? I'm working on modifying a game and am in need of a really good HEX editor (the one's I have are okay, but just wanted to check if there were any better one's out there).

    Thanks!

    I use Ultra Edit
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I usually use a simple thing called HEdit32. It is simple, but fits my needs. If you would like to try some editors, here's an overview of some:

    I find Hackman is really good, and very free.

    I (honestly) think that HyperEdit is really good.
    Mostly because I often want to edit large files.

    There's a pretty good one I use on Linux called... well I forget the name. But it was packaged with mandrake 9.

    On windows ive been using Hex Workshop and TSearch for editing process memory.

    RoD: Yeah, HackMan seems good, but it messes up if files larger than 4GB is opened.

    Edit: Hmm.. I think it's written in VB. It feels very strange to use hacker tools written in VB.

    I dont have one to recommend. But i just want to ask that how would hex editors come in useful in editing games. Or, what are hex editors for? Why would you want to look at hex values of a program? How would it be useful?

    thnx.

    I use it look at specific places in memory - it's easy since I'm on a small chip.

    Hex editors are usepul to edit files that aren't plain text and therefore cannot be opened with a text editor.

    Yes but after you open the files and look at the values what do you do with them.
