Editroid 3.0

Editroid 3.0 (beta) is ready and willing to satisfy all your Metroid hacking desires! You can download the editor or the source code.

Zelda Tech 3.4

Since the Zelda Tech section of the website is defunct and disused, and this part of the site is a lot easier to update, I’ll go ahead and put this here. A minor update of Zelda Tech with two fewer bugs. :/ Zelda Tech 3.4 For completeness, I’ll link to the other downloads here as […]

Metroid: Wavy-Ice

Romulus will be available as a .NET DLL, and will be usable from any .NET language. There is a thread for discussing Romulus on RHDN. Romulus actually […]

Editroid 2.1 is available for download. When it breaks, the best place to whine is MetConst, although you can also comment or e-mail me. (Read more for the link).
