Original post by JBourrie Posting in all caps looks dirty, sanchez. 1) What is the file you're trying to modify? 2) What are you trying to do to the file? 3) Why are you trying to modify it? 4) What is the name of the game so we can download it for ourselves?

Use the official forum for that game, the people who made it would know how their data is stored and thus also how to modify it.

Edit: seems as if what you're asking is against their rules, i don't think anyone here will help you cheat in an online game.

To answer your general question, read this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hex_editor
But that won't really help you it will still just be a bunch of symbols you don't understand. The answer to your specific question is - YOU CAN'T. You may think the information about skill requirements or whatever is in that file but you are wrong. That information is not in any file on your computer. It is on the game server and you can't change it.

you can't run arbitrary binary data, the best way to read arbitrary data files is by using a hex editor.

if the file isn't a data file but an executable or dll you can use a disassembler to convert it to assembly instructions. (these can be modified using a text editor and then reassembled using an assembler)

1. Don't spam other people's threads with your question unless it's actually related to what's being discussed, it's considered quite rude.

2. Type properly. Sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a period, and I'm sure you're quite capable of the minimal effort required to type whole words rather than letters; if you can't be bothered typing a proper question I don't really see why people should bother taking the time to answer your questions.

3. This is a site for game developers. This makes it extremely unlikely that we'd be interested in helping you cheat at someone's game.

4. We don't generally allow the re-posting of closed topics. In this case it was probably ok because you improved your all-caps behavior, but now that we've a) established you're trying to do something we don't help with (cheating at a game) and b) answered your question (you need a hex editor to edit files (which won't help you in this case, because the developers know people try to mess with thier files and keep all the important stuff on the server); do some research yourself if you want to learn to use it, it takes all of 1 minute with Google to find some good articles about it (but will probably be beyond your technical abilities to actually do if your spelling is anything to go by)) I think this topic can go as well.

5. This site is about developing games, not tech support to help you change a game you're playing with (unless of course you're trying to create a mod, which isn't what you're doing). You'd be better off asking such questions on a forum or chat related to the game in question.



...and yes, I'm being harsh, but the combination of an all-caps post, spamming someone else's topic, and your lazy typing (yes, we give people some leeway if they're from foreign countries, but what you're doing is pure laziness rather than unfamiliarity with the language) annoyed me.
