Application Information

This tool will allow you to edit the database.bin file from various Ego Engine games. In the file you can edit tons of things like events, ai skill levels, teams and so much more.


Here are some do's and dont's:

  • If you're going to add a new item make sure that it has it's own unique ID
  • If the type is bool then you can only write in True or False
  • Make sure the amount of characters in a string is the same as the specified size or less. If it says 16 you have to have 16 characters or less

Using the GUI

  • To open a table for editing double click it.
  • To close a table tab after editing press Control + T, select Close Tab from the Edit menu or double click the tab itself.
  • Right click the top left corner of a datatable to see a menu for turning columns on or off.
  • Right click a column header to see a filter menu pop up for easy searching of items.
  • When exporting as xml an xsd file is created along with your xml. Make sure to always have those two files together if you're going to send it to someone.
  • Middle-Mouse-Clicking certain cells in a table will open the table that the column of the cell is associated with.
  • When using the add row feature:
    • Double Click the top left corner of the datatable to view the main table.
    • For rows with a drop down box, double click the row header to view the table that the dropdown box is associated with.
    • To close tables double click their tab.
  • To edit cells faster (instead of the painful two clicks) use the right mouse click on a cell
  • Compare Databases
    • After Opening a database, select the second database that you want to get the differences from.
    • Once you get the differences, you can open the file separately to browse, or you can merge it to your original database.
    • NOTE: Do Not edit the difference file; When merging, rows will never be deleted; Certain tables cannot be checked for diffs
