Heroes of Newerth Resource Editor

August 7, 2011 1 comment

Hi, before anything else, this is a tool to edit the s2z files of the HoN (Heroes of Newerth) game.

This tool isn’t any thing “new” since these files format is public, it’s aim is to make their edition easier to every one with a few clicks. Don’t be expecting something completely overwhelming it’s in the early stage and it has a lot of bugs. It’s evolution depends directly on the acceptance it will have on the community and the number of people using it. It’s completely free, there aren’t any drawbacks or pro versions.

Keep in mind that this tool isn’t made by any company and it’s made exclusively on the spare time of a single person. So if you wish to contribute with anything use the Paypal buttons. 🙂

IMPORTANT: I will not take any responsibility for any harm done by this tool. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

So I think now is the time to start explaining how this works…

Requirements:

  • Java Virtual machine installed and on the latest version.

Operating Systems:

  • Windows 7 (Working)
  • MacOSX Snow Leopard (Working)
  • Linux (Not tested should be working)
  • It Should work on any System that has JavaVM installed.

(If you test it on any other platform send some feedback and I’ll update these infos)

So if you download the tool you should have the following files and folders.

  • default.png – Default icon used when you create a *.honmod
  • SizeOneHoNRELauncher.jar – This is the one you should run it will check for updates
  • SizeOneHoNResources.jar – The application, if you run this it will start the launcher
  • extract – (Folder) It’s where all the files you extract will go to.
  • lib – (Folder) This folder contains all the necessary libs to run the application (Don’t mess with this folder)
  • mods – (Folder) This is the default folder where the program stores your mods.
  • tmp – (Folder) Folder to store temporary files (You may delete it’s contents if you want)

If your application crashes it will send me a report with your operating system application version and the actual error.

You shouldn’t be able to run the SizeOneHoNResources.jar directly.

Features:

  • Viewing and Extracting contents of an *.s2z, *.honmod file (Any zip file :))
  • Creating New mod files (resourcesXXX.s2z or *.honmod)
  • Editing this files (add, remove, replace)

(Expect a few more features in the near future)
