Zone Doctor is a bit unpredictable though its level editor is a lot more stable than like the event editor. Try it and make a binary comparison between two ROM after to see if only the exit was changed.

Edit: You can use something like vbindiff or HxD to compare your hack and your hack + one exit change in Zone Doctor.

Well it is fixed in the CE version. I don't plan to fix it in the original version.

What is the difference between LE and the CE version?

FF6LE CE is based on FF6LE Rogue (latest version) and allow optional expansions for maps number, tilemaps, NPCs, event triggers, exits and chests.

I suggest you read this:

I'm not sure how reliable is Zone Doctor hex editor... the general tip is to avoid Zone Doctor altogether. For hex editing you can use HxD or Windhex and for map stuff FF6LE. There's not much Zone Doctor can do that other utilities can do so it's possible to live without it.

Zone Doctor will corrupt your rom every time. Do. not. hit. save. I have loaded up a rom, made zero changes, hit save, and confirmed that the rom became corrupted.


Projects:
Divergent Paths: The 3 Scenarios (Completed) - a redo of the 3 scenarios in the original game that gives equal time to each group. Meant to be a basis for future mods.
FFVI: Divergent Paths (In Progress) - a hack built off of the 3 scenarios that changes other events in the same, such as making Leo permanently recruitable, bringing Banon's story closure, and adding 1 more secret character.

I was able to restore the overworld corruption in the world of ruin. so the best option would be to avoid ZD at all? also i noticed that when using the spc editor, if you use the wrong instruments, it might cause the rom to crash unless you fix it to a more compatible one.

as for the event editing, i presume using the event dump is the best option for information while using the hex editor?
