UPeGDat and PPeGDatEdit
These two DOS programs can be used to unpack and repack the the data file for s16 images used by People's General. No batch mode allowed.
This is an alpha version of a People's General Equipment file editor. It lets you change some fields in the People's General equipment file, even add and remove units.
People's General Graphics Editor. Not very fancy but you can look at the icons in PeG , extract them as standard Windows bitmaps, change them and insert them back into the game file. Tired of all of those green on black buttons? Long for that camouflaged tank? Here's your chance.
This is an alpha version but it works fine. You can look at the names of files packed into Modgen.dat. This contains the icons used by the game (and some that aren't!). Do not try to view Dialogue.s16 or M2.s16. They are non-standard and will NOT work.
You can extract (s16) files from Modgen.dat. You can save individual icons to standard bmp files. You can relpace icons in the s16 file with edited icons.
You can replace s16 files in Modgen.dat so that the modified icon will be displayed in People's General.
Fred's Record Viewer - FRVEdit
32-bit MS-Windows (tm) program designed to supplement a standard hex editor, not replace it. It is designed mainly to assist in viewing binary files with a regular structure. It has inimal editing features. FRV shows files in two ways. As a two dimensional structure, useful for viewing fixed length data structures and as three dimensional structures good for viewing maps. Several display options such as hexadecimal, decimal, or mixed ASCII and hexadecimal are available. In addition, ranges can be set to be displayed in a separate panel as ASCII text. To help locate particular data, certain values or ranges can be displayed in a highlighted mode. A calculator supporting both hexadecimal and decimal input and results is included. Some powerful search options and a color coded file visualization mode are also available. For frequently viewed files, a configuration file which will be loaded on startup containing standard settings and field labels can be written. There are provisions made for formatted output to the clipboard for importing into a text editor. Data blocks can be saved and loaded in CSV format for manipulation in spreadsheets. A limited file comparison function is also available. Download (365k)
