SLP Editor is a very useful modding tool that allows you to edit .slp files, the files that hold all the graphics in the game.
Once you have created your new graphics using whatever tool you like (Photoshop, Gimp, MsPaint...), SLP Editor can convert your pictures to the AoK palette in a flash, and add them to a new .slp file which you then can add to the game using a program called DRS Explorer. While SLP Editor is limited on its own, is works best in combination with other programs. In the right context, SLP Editor is a great tool. It's simple to use, the interface is user-friendly and it complements programs like AGE and DRS Explorer perfectly.
There are some minor things that could be improved. For example, it would be nice to be able to select an anchor point by clicking a location on the image, as you could in the old Mod Pack Studio. It would also be nice if the program remembered the folders you had just used, so that you didn't have to go looking through four or five folders to find the folder where you save your new slps.
Other than that, SLP Editor is a simple, very useful and practical tool. I've been using it a lot lately, and it definitely helps to make modding easier.

Usefulness/Novelty: 5 & Quality/Instructions: 5
No doubt, this application is worth a royal 5.0+++
Of all applications ever posted, this is now the third best ive ever seen.
It took more than 10 years, but its finally here, the holy grail among all slp editors.
A must have for each designer and modpack tester.
This program has the most user friendly interface of all known slp editors and has very powerful functions that no other slp editor has in a user interface.
You are provided with series of tools to add, delete, move, crop, animate, convert, replace frames within slps and much more.
This program also allows you to use all buttons with hotkeys, so you can repeat actions very fast and allow you to switch to all functions very fast.
This rarely happens, but I have no negative comments or suggested improvements in mind.
Only optional would have been an installer to make the installation abit more easy for dummies, but this does not influence the rating of this upload.
This program is so far I know today's number 1 choice in utility's that can edit slp files directly.
I suggest you should put your programming talents to good use and also make a utility for managing drs files that works together with your current application to make editing the game even easier, it's up to you and I trust you will get another 5.0
