Change at hex address 23210 in DUNE2000.DAT the value DC to DD with XVI32 (ctrl+g) and have fun with the psychedelic Dune 2000 version.

So... do you have any idea what you're actually changing?

It's under the [unrevealed Terrain] code part, but is has more to do with the ground tiles vs building/units locations. The loaded value determines at what location from the top and left the ground tiles start in respect to the battleview. The original line is copy memory from the address [004E41DC], this has the value 14, but by changing it to the address [004E41DD] that contains such a heigh value it doesn't refresh the tiles and you get artistic effects.

 

Kinda figured that just out by looking at the code and changing the values.

Ah. It's just that I've seen the pretty questionable "randomly edit bytes in the exe until something happens ingame" approach here. I wasn't even sure a dissassembler would be involved :P

Would be more fun if you posted the ASM code, though :D

There is a lot of jumping and I can't get the code to display comments with the values, I'm not sure if it's useful to you.

I used OllyDbg to get the ASM code, but Cheat Engine has clearer code in the program, but copying it with comments is not possible, as far as I know.

I used OllyDbg to get the ASM code, but Cheat Engine has clearer code in the program, but copying it with comments is not possible, as far as I know.

what can this be used for??

how can I know which code does what??

I'm honestly confused using ida to edit dat/exe file..

I call this: "le dune art a la resistancé"

I was messing with the Dune2000 code and this happened.

You broke the game in an entirely new way.  :laugh:

Aqib, please don't quote such entire blocks for no reason.

 

D2k Sardaukar: Woah, not even jump labels? I use IDA, and it allows me to name any location...

It's kinda like changing the resolution of the game while running it. So use the program Cheat Engine and manipulate the memory location 004EB020. Adding just one to or subtracting one from the value at that location will make this weird effect.

Someone asked me once about how to edit the .bmp files used in the world map (data\UI_GFX\Regions). I couldn't do it with (free software like) the Gimp, Irfanview etc and I don't know if Photoshop can edit them, but I found out it's rather easy with the original program: Paint Shop Pro 5 (from 1998). You can download it here for free (30 day trial): http://www.oldapps.com/Paint_Shop_Pro.php

 

Example of edit and in the game different region color:

This was an issue? Paint.NET (free) can edit them fine.

I use paint .net to convert the tga files to bmp, as its free and similar to ms paint in ease of use.

I did not know that.

 

Paint Shop Pro can also save TGA in correct format. Paint.NET can't.

Since paint.net is still developed, im sure its possible to get it to work properly, whether by creating a plugin or by asking the developer. Either way, good information to know.

Fail at menu render. It's more work than I thought. Will probably not finish this, but I learned a lot about VB.NET.

Nice, I started doing some work on a tool a couple of years ago, but I didn't get that far on it. I can send you the source code if you're interested (C#)

Would be cool to take a look at the code and play with it, because checking your image, it looks like one can even move the images around and save that? That is very nice!

 

I see you have the same problem with the buttons. The supplied width, height in the .uil is not being used. It's almost all the time wrong. The dimensions of the images are used.

 

I'm not sure if I will improve your code enough to release it, because getting it all to work properly is a lot of work. (I think)
