If anyone out there plays SWG I’m a first day vet by the name of Anzel and I played on the Corbantis server right up to and shortly after the NGE. While taking a break from SWG I picked up EAW and started playing
After playing EAW for only a few moments I realized that this game was very big and could become overwhelming for someone who was just getting used to the genre. I immediately started looking for mods and came across this site. After playing with the XML for a bit I found myself searching through thousands upon thousands of lines of code.
Finally I decided to boot up VS2005 and start hacking away with my shiny new C# 2.0 and a brand new volume of Infragistics controls. That leads me to where I am now. I have what I think is a solid shell of a program that can be built upon.
WHAT IS EAW EDITOR?
EAW Editor is a Windows based application written entirely in C# 2.0 and is capable of both extracting the necessary XML files (from .meg’s) as well as editing them.
WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD IT?
You can download the latest build from the
or the EAW Editor Home Page
BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
Before you install EAW editor and start hacking away at your game please take not of the following:
- Before attempting to edit anything using EAW Editor you must first extract the XML files to a directory on your hard disk. EAW Editor has a very simple interface to accomplish this. Once you have extracted the files then you may begin editing the XML.
- The forms for editing the XML use a highly specialized Data Grid with has filtering and sorting features. You can use these features by clicking on the various controls in the header of each column within the grid.
- Many of the elements within the EAW Editor may be resized. Simply move your mouse over the different sections of the form and you’ll see your mouse cursor change indicating that you can resize that section.

COOL IDEA. HOW CAN I HELP?
I am looking for someone to provide me with additional graphics for the left hand navigation and the toolbar buttons. Something sexy that goes with the genre. Also, I welcome any feedback or ideas that any of you may have.
Alpha Build 30625
This is the initial public preview of EAW Editor. Currently it will allow you to view and extract .meg files. Additionally there are three forms that allow for editing of specific ground units. These forms are fully functional and are meant to be a test bed for further development in terms of managing and editing the XML source. Please post any bugs or suggestions that you may have in the Lucas Forums at http://www.lucasforums.com
Expect the next several versions to expand on the number of files that can be edited.
