Now, I can:

- never pay for a single lynx or tiger (25+ cheats involved with that)
- change rate of fires for every weapon to 20x faster than you can in one of the Dan cheats
- laser damage (yep, Super Lasers are a reality)

Hey, can you send me some of those cheats?  I was trying to open OP2_ART.bmp, but it didn't work. (Did you know you could crash your computer with a bitmap?  I didn't until today... It was kinda funny)

Well, if you know a a OP2 Hacking tutorial, let me know...

You used up too much space before trying to open it.  That's Why I always save pics as Jpegs.

Well, I can't help you with the BMP. Hacking tutorial, hmmm. I'd have to update it. A lot has happened since August.

I have had other things to do since August, like school. Also, for a while, I was short on ideas, like in November, I thought for an hour I hacked all I could.

I was using the demo sheets as a guide. Did you know when you use the Dan's rapid fire cheat, the microvave rate of fire does not change the first time you use it? (Found that out at a cost of 20 minutes)

What 'VOL' file are these settings stored in?  I just need to find the format, then I'll be ok.  Maybe I should get back to work....  (on OP3)

The sheets.vol, but I think many here would prefer you to do OP3, and would hate me if I got you into hacking OP2.

I'll bug with the sheets.vol. It's compressed, not encrypted, because the EXE does make reference to columns.

Ok, I dissassembled Outpost2.exe last night, and traced that program for two hours...  I found out that the program decompresses the Sheets.vol file right before you can play the game...  I will continue working on this at night.  I do OP3 Stuff in the day...

hehehehe.... I made my EMP's and RPG's change the firing rate to FF.  You can build an impassable EMP wall..

I knew that. It loads all the game files (maps.vol, op2.clm, sheets.vol, sounds.vol, voices.vol, and the map and script) when you press the Start button on a tutorial, campaign, CG, or multi.

I also know the location of the code used to decompress the research topics.

I would trace the game more if I wasn't so lazy to go add a line to autoexec.bat to load softice, then have to restart, then take it out so it doesn't load again... :-(

garrett: Not trying to bug you or anything, but Phil could be right. You should do OP3... Unless you really have time to do both....

What debugger did you use?

Seting firing rate to FF? That would make it slower! Set it to 0. Lot's of grenades per second.

so is the normal value 99 or something, and the new value is relative?

it would be cool if you could set it at a negative value.

EMP is 256, and RPG 35, I think. I'd have to look it up.

The d_sheets.vol. I should probably write a new hackning guide sometime. The one I wrote is outdated.
