Description

Easy game resources collector and editor, that allows third parties to work on a game, without having to recompile the game project. This is only intended for small 2D games or applications, just for fun, there is currently no compatibility with DirectX.

Dilonardo Game Edit has a real-time animated multimedia contents and scalable architecture, it supports all Windows operating systems starting from Windows 98. The entire source code is written in Microsoft Visual C++ version 6, using MFC and GDI+, no external DLL (such as Codejock or other) is needed. Moreover, multiple resources files can be used simultaneously for a project.

I am currently working on a DLL that will include every functions needed to load and use the Game Edit resource files.

To modify the contents of grids, just click on a cell with the right mouse button. Use the middle mouse button to quickly move in grids.
In views that can be moved by mouse, holding the SHIFT or ALT key, produces different kind of movement.
