Default Text Hex Decoder

UPDATE PEOPLE! {XD}

Text Hex DecoderConvert Version 2.1.1



What the heck is this tool?



This "poorly-made" tool converts Text values to Hex value, and vice-versa. And it is now written in VB.NET! After I decided to part ways with Java. For example if you want to change the game's battle messages,(see smeargles' tutorial HERE) you can use this tool to aid you in converting text values to hex values, and again, vice-versa. And now added support to standard hex!

If you're familiar with hex, converting is just a piece of cake for you. But what if not? Try to look at this:

Let's try to convert the string, "Hello world" for example. Now, how the heck can we convert this to hex? Take note that every letter has it's corresponding Hex equivalent. You can look at this list if you want:

Now, did you find yourself a pretty hard time looking for its hex equivalent?
Worry not anymore cause this is the aim of this tool. To help minimize the work for you.
Just input the text/hex you want to convert, push the convert button, and VIOLA! piece of cake, ain't it?

    [L], [R], [.], [""], "", ['], [m], [f], [$], [x], [>]
    [u], [d], [l]

What language are you using? I have a c# method that i use in almost all my tools that does exactly this... and it even handles the special characters... if you want it just let me know...

I actually have 3 methods. One to read text from hex, another to write hex from text... and the last converts text (with special characters) to what it looks like on screen, i call it translate.

EDIT: oh i see you are using java... well you are welcome to look at my C# code if you want it... it may help

Damn, I just saw this . Thanks for the offer man! Can you PM me your code? Or just the algorithm you used? My only problem now is in can't print the bugs listed. But i have done the "Hex to Text" feature and I recodded it in VB.NET. Add me on PC if you can too, I'm under the name Kakarot1212.
