Hapsby is a universal save game editor written in Java. The first version was published way back in the year 2000. After being on the shelf for a while I modernized the UI by upgrading it to JavaFX. The result is a much better-looking, and faster version of Hapsby.

Debigulator is a batch compression utility I wrote in Java all the way back in 2003. I decided to modernize it by upgrading the user interface to JavaFX. It looks and runs considerably better now. New archive formats were also added as part of this upgrade.
