Leftos wrote:wtferrell, I did last year, but his changes didn't make any sense to me. It's reverse-engineering alright, but I have no idea how he determines which offsets and ranges to mess with.

It's easy to see it for yourself. Grab Hex Workshop or any tool with binary comparison, load up the -cough cough- exe on one side, the michaelvlutz one on the other side, and ask it to compare for you.

I won't be doing any hex edits myself, I'll only be making the tools. If anybody else wants to take a look, be my guest.

Evo, the tool by itself doesn't improve anything, I just hope it makes it easier for people who do advanced hex-editing to do their job.


Do you think it's possible to compare one of his tight jersey modded .exe's with the regular fitting modded .exe's? I'm assuming that would indicate the values that he's changed to get them there? If everything else is the same, that's the only thing that should be changed, right?

I'm just HIDEOUS at Hex. Can't seem to grasp it for some reason.

And I think this pretty much solves shader editing. Kudos to Jao for the suggestion:

Re: [Tool] Hex on Steroids v0.2

Postby Leftos on Fri Oct 05, 2012 9:10 pm

v0.2 released!
- Added status bar which indicates current decimal offset and original value
- Fixed bug which wouldn't load values of whole files correctly if the data type wasn't Double
- Tool now shows progress in the title bar during most lengthy operations
- Profiles now have bounds option, which allows you to load only values between certain bounds
- Profiles now have absolute value option, which allows you to load only values larger in absolute value than a specified one
- Improved shader detection by making sure not to start parsing at an odd offset
- Tool now supports pasting values back into it
- Go to Offset added

v0.2.0.1 released!
- Fixed saving behavior when using profiles with value constraints.

is it possible to have a big/little endian toggle without loading different profiles and reloading the file? not really needed needed, just curious how difficult that would be

It'll have to reload the whole file anyway, or convert every single value, so either way, there's not much point to it.

v0.3.0.1 released!

Added "Auto Detect with Custom Header" feature. Allows you to enter any header you want in its hex representation, and it will give you the x number of values you set after each instance of that header.

it is an alternative to hex editing. Instead of dealing with straight hex and figuring out values, this tool displays values for you and lets you edit them easily

This latest update makes floor reflections and possibly floor colors easier to update and edit. I just need to write up tutorials (probably tomorrow)
