I've been in development of these two tools for nearly a year. It's gotten quite complex and I think it's time I start chronicling my efforts. I guess I should say a little about them:

This was the first of the two that I made. It's a KERNEL.BIN editor for Final Fantasy 7. To those that don't know what that means, almost all non-enemy battle-related data is located here. This includes magic attack data, weapon strengths, materia attributes, accessory effects, etc. It's a LOAD of stuff. I've worked on it off-and-on for nearly a year now and I'm finally happy with the result. I'm proud to say that it can edit virtually every byte of significance in the KERNEL.BIN file! It was named this because Wall Market is a location in the game that was the trading hub of the Midgar Slums. My original desire for this was just to make the Ultima Weapon give growth slots and to increase the number of Materia slots on the armors. Since it modifies every item/materia, it was logical to name it after a large market. :)

Proud Clod:
This was originally called Heidegger and was, for a short time, little more than an attack editor for the scene.bin. This is the file that stores all enemy-related (not "monster-related" since not all enemies are monsters) data. This was originally made because it was made known to me that the attack data in the scene.bin was in the same format as the data in the KERNEL.BIN. So all this did was modify the 32 attacks in each scene. After I got further in development of WallMarket, I decided that this needed to edit much more about each enemy. The AI that guided the enemy, for example. Thus Proud Clod was born. Since this, it has been given the ability to edit enemy formations within a scene (placement of enemies, for example). It can also modify the attacks they're allowed to use. This is intended to be a companion tool with Hojo by Squall78 to complete the total manipulation of the scene.bin file! I believe I went through the data on this file and the two modify everything.

As far as my interpretation of the EULA goes, these tools do not violate it. The EULA basically says "Don't illegally distribute any pieces of this game" and "Don't reverse engineer this for the purpose of taking its contents for your own works". I'm not ripping anything out that I'm going to commercially use (or even personally use). As such, however, I do not endorse the usage of these tools to either end! The latest versions of each of these allow you to save the modifications you've made to a file that CAN be legally distributed because it is not a working piece of the game. There also isn't any "don't modify the contents of the game" for various reasons, but I would say "I can modify any byte of stored data on my computer that I WANT!"

So now that introductions are out of the way, let me say that I'll use this blog to provide information about my progress to their development. I'm not completely happy with them yet and I'd welcome suggestions to make them better. I'm pretty sure there's little more to do with WallMarket other than bug fixes, but if anyone comes up with a REALLY good feature request I'll consider it.
