    Chao Editor Redux

    NOTICE

    I no longer own a 360, nor do I have the source code for this editor anymore. I also will no longer be (nor have I been for some time) working on or releasing any mods for the 360. Therefor, all of my editors are on permanent hiatus, including this one. I know I made a lot of grand promises with this editor, and now they will not be fulfilled, and for that I apologize.

    To clarify, I am not leaving the modding scene entirely, as I plan to move on to modding the PS4 (quite possibly for this website if the scene is good for it). However, I will not be returning to the 360 modding scene in any large part. I am grateful for the admins for allowing me to remain a member despite my long absences, and I will continue to use that membership to help the community from time to time. Otherwise, I will no longer be working with the 360.

    Please PM me with any questions or concerns, and I will do my best to address them as quickly as possible. Thank you for understanding, and I apologize for the inconvenience.

    THAT HAVING BEEN SAID.

    I do still have my hex workshop bookmarks for this editor, and will happily share them with anybody who wants them. Any developer that wants to carry on my work has my blessing. However, please give credit if you use my research to make a new editor, as I did put a LOT of time into it. http://www.mediafire.com/download/kx...o+Research.zip





    VERSION 2.3

    Chao Editor Redux is a save editor which edits the savedata.bin files found within Sonic Adventure 1 and 2's Chao saves. In order to use it, you will need to first extract savedata.bin from the main save. Load savedata.bin into the editor, change what you want edited, then click the Save button. If it's a Sonic Adventure 1 save, then that's it, you're good to go; if it's a Sonic Adventure 2 save, then you'll need to also load it into SA2C Hash Fixer and fix the hash. Once everything is all said and done, inject savedata.bin back into the save file, rehash/resign, then put it back on your USB/HDD and load it from the game menu. (Modio users read the notice at the end of my post.)

    Now that SA2 functionality has been added, I will be updating this editor regularly. New functions will be added from time to time, so check often. Once all functions have been added, I will make a final update which will allow all 24 Chao in a save to be modded. Thank you for waiting patiently for SA2 compatibility, and for continuing to use my tools.

    A word of advice. This editor can mod everything to its utmost maximum. The max stat achievable in-game is 3266 for each stat, but it can be modded to be as high as 65535. The game is not designed with values that high in mind, especially when it comes to races. Modding your fly, power, luck, and intelligence stats above a certain amount will cause some races to be unbeatable. Personally, I prefer to keep my stats around 3500; this avoids any issues with races.

    Also, textures override colors. If you have a Chao that is both colored blue and textured gold, you will only see the gold. Model overrides everything.

    NOTICE:
    People have been reporting their saves getting corrupt after using the editor. One thing that I've noticed between them is that they all use Modio to rehash/resign their save, and switching to something else has almost always fixed the issue. Normally, I'd advise against Modio in any situation (specifically because it tends to cause problems like this). If you're getting a corrupt save and are using Modio, then switch to Horizon or Infinity.

    Thanks. Now that I've got the hang of it, I plan to continue making editors, especially for games that don't get much attention from modders.

    Re: {Release} Sonic Adventure Chao Editor

    It is scary to start. But, if you use VB, it gets extremely easy. I made this editor over the course of three days (and a lot of breaks in between) and I started with literally no knowledge of programming aside from how to hex edit. I got a bit of help along the way, and now I'm comfortable making an editor for any game with static values and no security. I'm sure you can do it if you try.
