My dad used to have a program that would let you edit your saved games, changing stuff like the supply of various powerups and how many orbs you had found. Of course, if I am blessed enough to be able to play this game, I intend to beat it without such software, but would like a copy of it afterwards- both for the preservation of history and to screw around with once I'm done being legitimate. Does anyone have this editor?

I may indeed have the saved game editor, would you like me to look (no I never used it, I just had it)

Ha, don't worry, your honor is safe with me. If a man dedicates so much of his time to hyping a series, it's safe to trust that he's legitimately completed the game.

And yes, I would appreciate it. Just to have it... like you ;)

yes, I beat Dark Castle, Color Dark Castle, and Beyond Dark Castle, all on Advanced, no cheating. I'm proud of it!

It turns out that I have it in a suite of Dark Castle stuff I got a while back, I never looked into, but looks pretty cool:

•Dark Castle Editor - Sadly only a saved game editor.

•Behind Dark Castle - same as above, I didn't try either of them that much, so I don't know what's better.

•Dark Castle Demo - Supposedly this is a demo of Dark Castle, but I cannot seem to get it working, if anyone else does feel free to tell me about it.

•Dark Castle Maps - Maps of both of the labyrinths.

And here is the link, enjoy:

Cool, thanks for digging those out. It'll make for some fun experimentation once I've slain the beast proper.

So have you tried them out yet Action Jack? I haven't had time yet, but I am interested to know if you got them to work, or if you are still "slaying the beast."

Oh, I already slew the beast and moved on to the original.

I thought I might need the cheat programs to speed up my gathering of ideas for Prince Duncan's Diary, but I just used the practice rooms.

And now that you mention it... the version on the download you pointed me toward had saved games that had been influenced by the editor. But I saved over them, because they were on the first two mainframes.
