WiNBA-Ed is a Windows-based editor for NBA Live 95 which allows users to modify roster data, created by Brien Smith. The final released version is v3.03 and may still be used in Windows XP. WiNBA-Ed modifies the NBA Live 95 executable file directly when editing player data and hence can also be used to modify the default text strings in the game. It is through this method that users can assign new player names, nicknames, schools and other bio data. The editor also allows users to change player ratings, height, weight, projected statistics (a forerunner to DSTATS) and previous season statistics. Import and export functions are also included, allowing stats and attributes to be imported from or dumped to text files as desired. A Make/Apply patch feature allows the modified executable data to be saved to a file for other users to import, or import a ready-made patch file with modified executable data.

Because it is a 16-bit program, WiNBA-Ed cannot be run in a 64-bit version of Windows.

WiNBA-Ed was used extensively along with Jose de Leon's DOS-based NBA Live 95 Game Editor to create roster patches for NBA Live 95. It was an extremely popular tool in the early days of the NLSC when NBA Live 95 was still popular and widely played by fans of the series.
