  • used it for years, It's a hex editor, gets the job done!

  • Doesn't have Find in hex (only find in text) - instant uninstall

  • Found nothing in the way of contacting the team for feature requests, been trying to find an editor with looped write capabilities and this is not one of them. Just to clarify what I mean here is are 2 examples of what I was looking for: start at address 0x15000 increment address by 0xB for 100 iterations on each iteration replace with 32bit hex on next line from example.txt ~ start at address 0x15004 increment address by 0xB for 100 iterations start with value 0x270F and decrement by 0x1 on each iteration overwriting in litte-endian format ~ Then I would write the number of bytes used to fixed offset, and number of items written at another fixed offset. BTW these actions are mainly for savegame editing (Ihave completed the game before :P)

  • When you open a file, it automatically replaces the current file you are looking at instead of opening a new window. You have to run multiple instances of the program yourself. That's a deal-breaker for me. This is way too inconvenient for me to use. (If this changes, I'll gladly change my rating.)

  • It didn't work for me. I tried to "replace" null (the beginning of the line) with some text. Didn't work.

  • Did its job, no muss no fuss. I marked it down because of the user interface: it does not display rows of data 16 bytes at a time which makes it somewhat confusing to locate the data you want. All hex editors I've used have aligned on a 16 byte (or multiple) boundary, ideally with an extra space between groups of 4 and 8. Other than that, it's fine.

  • Frhed works fine.

  • Too much trouble. I downloaded frhed twice in case something screwed up the first time but was unexecuteable. Browsing the "chm" file I found that it would be necessary to download an "installer" to ensure I agreed to the license. Said installer nowhere obvious in view on the frhed home or download pages. I had no such trouble with the 2 other hex editors I downloaded as they came with their installer and licensing agreement included. The above, in combination with the comments about registry entries I decided not to bother.

  • It is open source and it works well for me. It is the best open source hex editor I found so far.

  • The description say's it can open big files partialy. When I tried to open a 19GB file it said "Not enough memory to load file". I found HxD Freeware Hex Editor met my requirements.

  • Very nice!

  • Nice and Easy to use.

  • very good project

  • If you're hacking on your own machine, it's a great, easy-to-use, powerful hex editor, but the registry thing keeps me from using it as a portable app - you can only use it's 'remove frhed from the registry' option if you're allowed to put frhed in the registry in the first place... I'm still using 1.0.153 for this reason - good luck finding it, though.

  • The interface is a bit of a mess and the program creates quite few registry keys, but is remains an incredibly powerful hexadecimal editor.
