BYOB (Bring your own browser)

No account needed, no downloads, no installs. All analysis takes place within the browser with unparalleled speed

Saves can be uploaded to be shared with others or as a backup

Uploaded saves receive enhancements automatically as PDX Tools is updated

Recommended: Chrome (88+), Edge (88+).
Supported: Firefox (89+), Safari (15.2+).

Melting Support

PDX Tools can convert (aka melt) ironman and binary saves into normal saves so that one can easily inspect the raw contents

As a bonus the newly converted save can be continued in game as if it was a normal save all along

Fresh Competition

An advanced achievement engine uses the game's logic to check if a save has completed one of the supported achievements

Uploaded saves are tagged with completed achievements to generate a leaderboard of who speed ran a certain achievement the quickest

The leaderboard is kept evergreen by enacting a small tax to saves on previous patches, just enough to keep the leaderboard fresh while allowing exceptional runs to bask in glory forever
