Synopsis: This page includes screen shots that demo the use of Groovy Hex Editor. Groovy Hex editor is a shareware hex editor for editing binary files, data files, savegames, etc.
This is the main window of Groovy Hex Editor. You can see lots of useful parts:
Some people have voiced their... lets call it "opposition" ... to the groovy color scheme. Therefore, I've thrown on a whole slew of color options, that you can use the morph the software all the way back to a normal windows look and feel:
Not real exciting (in fact, I'm tempted to call it downright boring...), but not likely to burn out your retinas like the groovy color scheme is.
