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?

This tool cannot convert specific characters yet, for "Text - Hex" only. They are as
follows:
  • [pk], [mn], [po], [k], [k], [bl], [oc], [U], [D]
    [L], [R], [.], [""], "", ['], [m], [f], [$], [x], [>]
    [u], [d], [l]
