are essential to get the best experience with the Editor.
used to be THE way to experience hidden extras and tweak the game to your liking...
SubDrag, Wreck, and Zoinkity have taken GoldenEye to infinity and beyond...
GE / PD Setup Editor (for the N64 ROM) is a work of pure genius.
beauty of the editor is that it allows you to do as much or as little as you want.
basic changes to existing GoldenEye/Perfect Dark missions, change levels around
entirely, or even get as complex as building entirely new missions from scratch...
Even download & play missions that others have created.
trusty Gameshark Pro finally crapped out, I decided to try the GoldenEye ROM.
main reason for getting GoldenEye on my PC was to try the GoldenEye Setup Editor
for the first time...
1 was to download a program (like mupen64) to
play N64 games on my computer . Step 2, was to download a copy of a GoldenEye
ROM (searched for Goldeneye 007.z64), and make sure I could actually play the
damn thing with my basic system & video card.
another good resource: GoldeneyeForever.com
for an excellent step-by step tutorial, and links to a few plugins you may need)
far, so good. Now it was onto Step 3 - downloading & installing the
GoldenEye Setup Editor from GoldenyeVault.com.
got handy links to a couple of free microsoft downloads needed to run it)
overwhelming, but it was simple enough - just followed the tutorials, and double-checked
my steps the first few times.
a few basic things at first, then got more comfortable how the editor works. You
can change/add vehicles in levels, assign keys or keycards to guards, add or change
guard weapons, add/removing hats or helmets...
add more guards/scientists, just pick an existing character, and hit "duplicate".
You can edit the co-ordinates (aka preset) where the guard will start, and even
decide what head, uniform/weapons to equip him with. All by clicking a mouse and
choosing options from a dropdown menu! I must be dreaming... Nobody wake me!
can't resist posting some of these screenshots. Not necessarily trying to re-create
everything that's vintage "beta" GoldenEye. Just trying to give a different
look and feel to each mission, in part by incorporating some of the unused props,
giving the guards different weapons, uniforms, etc.
recommend playing around with open, outside levels (like the Dam and Runway) at
first, because it's easier not to get lost when first learning to navigate around
the visual editor. It's just so kickass to look at stuff that's just been modified
to see if it looks right before saving it to your ROM.

with assault rifles, bunkered down for a shootout in the dam. An extra challenge
because they've both got helmets to protect the tops of their heads. Also, some
retro "beta" fuel drums & boxes in the background.
no effort to stay true to the movie, just an alternate take on the Runway mission..
as well blow up the supply truck (full of guns & ammo for the Russians). It's
a good opportunity to test the signts on your tank cannon before taking out the
plane's been destroyed, but luckily there's a helicopter that 007 should be able
to swipe. Just gotta find someone with a key...
Branch is most impressed with this gadget!
Add another tank, 007. And while
you're at it, increase the number of civillian lives that you're allowed to endanger...
There's a good fellow!
