-A: Check out the [[ff3:ff3us:util:start|utility page]]. For general SNES graphics, [[rh:utilities:yychr|YY-CHR]] is a popular editor. For hex editing, {{rh:util:hex:hxd_1.7.7.0.zip|HxD}} is a good all purpose editor and {{rh:util:hex:windhex.zip|Windhex}} has table support (to edit text). As for recommended editor for a regular hack (with no data expansion), we recommend [[ff3:ff3us:util:ff3usme|FF3usME]] for any general data, character sprite, animation data menu backgrounds and BRR samples. [[ff3:ff3us:util:ff3se|FF3SE]] is good for portraits, monster sprites and esper sprites. +A: Check out the [[utility|utility page]].

 Anything map related should be done with {{ff3:ff3us:util:maps:ff6le_rogue_2013-05-25.7z|FF6LE Rogue}} (which require an expanded ROM). Avoid Zone Doctor as it has higher chances of ROM corruption. For chests, {{ff3:ff3us:util:maps:ff6le_rogue_2013-05-25.7z|FF6LE Rogue}} or {{ff3:ff3us:util:data:ff6mde_1.72.zip|FF6MDE}} are good (which can also do animation data). For compressed graphics, {{ff3:ff3us:util:gfx:psv.7z|Peer Sprite Viewer}} in junction with [[rh:utilities:yychr|YY-CHR]] is the way to go (see compressed data list [[ff3:ff3us:doc:asm:other:compression|here]]). For music, there is a specific process that make things faster, refer to the music section down below. For specific palettes {{ff3:ff3us:util:gfx:snspal03.zip|SNESpal}} is a good tool.  Anything map related should be done with {{ff3:ff3us:util:maps:ff6le_rogue_2013-05-25.7z|FF6LE Rogue}} (which require an expanded ROM).
