This is a suite of tools comprising a level editor and an animation editor for games based on the Retro Sonic Engine (RSDK). It supports editing the level maps for Sonic Nexus, Sonic CD, Sonic 1, Sonic 2 and Retro-Sonic (both the 2006 Dreamcast demo and the 2007 SAGE demo).
Obviously, you need to unpack the datafiles first before you can get to the maps, use Retrun-Sonic, available at http://unhaut.fav.cc/retrun, for that.
TaxEd.jar is the premade Java Archive file for the application, run it using the Java Virtual Machine installed on your computer.
A dialog prompting you to choose what tool to use will appear on the screen. There are right now two choices available: Level Editor and Animation Editor. New tools may be added in the future as more aspects of the games are understood.
If you are hacking Sonic Nexus, you need to decrypt the files to modify them, and encrypt them back again manually; see http://unhaut.fav.cc/retrun/nexus.html for more information.
