Question:What is "hex"?
Answer:Hex is short for hexadecimal. It goes, "0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F, 10." Here is a comparison:
Decimal0210
Hexadecimal02A
Binary0101010

Question:Wait a minute... What does this have to do with ROM hacking?
Answer:All data is stored as binary: zeroes and ones. Rather than having to read data painfully in binary, though, a hex editor converts data to hexadecimal for a more comfortable experience. A hex editor can let you modify any aspect of a game.
Question:Where do I get a hex editor?
Answer:Here is HxD. Bless is a cross-platform hex editor.
Question:Now that I have it, how do I use it?
Answer:Here is a very basic tutorial on how to hex edit. Here are some tips if you plan on looking for undocumented things to edit.
