Heroes Layout Editor is an utility to edit object layouts in Sonic Heroes. It was originally written by igorseabra4 in Visual Basic .NET, but later re-written in C#. The editor can open object layout .bin files and allows you to add and remove objects, as well as edit all its properties. It can get XYZ coordinates from the game while it's running and also teleport the player to the currently selected object. The editor uses .ini files for object and level names. It's intended to be used in conjunction with Heroes SET ID Table Editor and other hacking tools.
