LazyShell, a Super Mario RPG ROM Editor #VintageComputing #GameMod #Nintendo

editor for SMRPG called Lazy Shell

For nearly as long as computer games existed, we’ve had computer game modifications (GameMods). I can remember back to the ASCII Star Trek game a mod to have, like, infinite everything.

Super Mario RPG is a wildly popular game in the Mario series. I thought I’d let you know of a game editor mentioned by @Foone I hadn’t heard of – LazyShell:

Lazy Shell is capable of editing a wide range of elements within the Super Mario RPG (US) ROM image file.

These elements include allies, battle animations, attacks, spells, sound effects, music, battlefields, dialogues, fonts, effects, events, formations, items, shops, level/location maps, the main title, menus, the mine-cart maps, monsters, sprites, world maps, and more. In addition, it also includes a help database and a project manager to help organize a full
hack project.

This particular editor is available on GitHub and is a fork from earlier work which was stalled on Sourceforge. See GitHub for more details.

What is your favorite GameMod program? Is it open source? Let us know in the comments below.
