This program does work with Sapphire but some offsets may be missing from the ini.
Nevermind, it works fine on other roms...

Default GNU GPL...?

This program's license has a couple of problems...

It doesn't respect the users freedom to help thy neighbor. You cannot share the program without permission... I can't upload it to my Google Drive and tell my friend "Hey, check out this cool program!"
Quote:
1. Re-uploading of this program is not allowed without permission.
It doesn't specify what "other program" is in section 6.
Quote:
6. You are allowed to use code from this program in other programs as long as credit is given.
I could simply redistribute PGE and call it a different program that uses all of the code, to bypass 1, making 1 pointless.

I recommend using a more mature license that has tested legal standing- the GNU GPL is one of the best Free/Open-source licenses out there (If not the best) and it would make things easier for you and the user if it was licensed under a GPL-compatible license.

Just a friendly note...

The goal is basically to try prevent people from recompiling the program with malicious code and then redistributing it which has happened in the past.

I see. Then I purpose an alternate license:

This only allows modified binaries to be redistributed with your permission; unless you don't respond to the request in 62 days. After 62 days, they may distribute the modified binary, but only if the "CREDIT.txt" file stays in-tact, so that you have credit.
The reason for the "62 day" clause:
The danger of the author abandoning a project for good and not even looking at requests is real, and similar licenses have lead projects to death because the author never acknowledges requests for redistribution after abandoning the project- this would prevent Pokemon Game Editor from ever dying.

If you use this license, you need to set up an AUTHORS.txt file in the source-code that has your email or some such contact information, and a CREDITS.txt file in the source-code that also describes you as the author.

I'm not the creator, but I can easily argue against some of your points in a different way:

1. You want to share the tool to recommend it - link this forum or his site. you don't HAVE to upload it yourself to share it, do you?

2. Other program - as in don't use any of the code directly from this program. Pretty straightforward imo.

1. That was merely an example- and of course you don't have to. But there's no harm in doing so, unless it's modified. It should be OK to redistribute VERBATIM copies, and modified copies with permission.

2. It says that you can use code directly from this program, however.

I think I'll just leave it as it is. Thank you for your concern.

Hello

Do you need to edit the ini to add more pokemon or moves and such?
It's a bit of annoying since it's really long.

Anyway, Thank you for making such a great tool.
It sure comes in handy with the hack I'm working on.
I don't have to go back in one tool and another.
