well this is what i need, I am looking for someone who might be able to make me an editor, What I need is an editor that can modify enemy stats. it is a super nintendo emulator game, Wizardry 5. I love the game but i find that the enemies are way to easy. Someone has made me an editor for breath of fire 2 that does the same thing, all i had to do was load the rom in the editor and then i could edit any enemy's stats hp, str, exp....ect.
I have the game. here it is. Also I have another windows game I need the same thing for called Elminage Gothic. Hopefully you will be able to do one of them.

Paying anyone who will help get it done.

Or... you do it yourself.
I mean, theoretically it's not that complicated. You get a ROM-parser, parse your ROM-file, locate "where" the stats are in the file (byte positions) and then you can probably edit said values around said point in the raw ROM-file with a HEX editor. It will be quite some trial-and-error though as you will corrupt the ROM most of the time, but I mean how hard can it be? The SNES cartridge is like 32MBit (~4MB) of data!

Taking it further, you can take a crash-course to Python at and create a simple user-interface using something like GTK or TkInter (Python UI libs) +a lib for HEX-editing files. Win!

No one is going to do this for you so you better start doing this yourself. It could be quite a fun project for learning lots of stuff.
