Second Post, Strange question
« on: August 18, 2003, 01:59:16 am »

Ill be quite honest on this, Its a extreemly strange question about modifying the game.

I have beaten SC2 at least 5 since i got the pc version and i am working on the UQM Version right now. After ive beaten a game i often like Modifying it to see what can be done. For example using cheat coads to give certain advantages or disadvantages, or in this case i phyisicaly modifying the game thorugh a hex editor

My abilitys are verry limited ill be quite honest, last night i tryed to figure out how to dot his and failed, What i was trying to do exactly was modify 3 componets, Change the fuel tank capacity to 500, change the crew capacity to 300 and the Storage capacity to something like 5000. I know this will unbalence the game but i enjoy collecting lots of minerals, but to do this i always fly around with a ship with no weapons. so im always running from a fight. I just wanted to try to Modify the game with these specs and see how it went. Just for fun nothing else.

Anyways i was wondering if anyone knows what hex value in what file i should modify or if there is a file that is strait text with all the values in it. If you could help that would be cool, if not thats ok to. im still enjoying it as is. just like to play with modifications to a game. Anyways Thanks again for listining to my rambeling.

You don't really need to use a hex editor, the souce is freely available, you can change the values for all of those and then just recompile the game.

This means that you have to understand code written in the C programming language and you must be able to compile the game on your computer.
If this sounds gibbrish to you, this means you should stick to the HEX editor, learn to code or ask someone else to insert the features you need.
