Change the Model of a Savegame
« on: Aug 29, 2009; 08:03 PM »
Hi.

i have made a bedder looking character, but i dont want to play to lvl 35 again, and get all those items i carry. I've serached for a few Hours on Google for a Programm or a trick to change the looking of a Character in the Singleplayer game. but i didn't found anything like that. Does anything like this exsist?

I don't know of any program that lets you modify the save game.
And there's no way I know of that lets you modify your character's armour at runtime(while the game is running).
In fact, the only way I think you'd be able to do it, involves unhelling files, and copying some of the files over other ones. Which would take quite a bit of time.

you mean i should open the ".hg1" file and try to extrackt the looking settings?
i opend one right now. They start nice, but go on with cryptic... =/

i will create some new savegames and try to see whats change in the code. maybe i can find out some things, and maybe i'll be able to make a guide to change the looking of charecters in the singleplayer game.  :)



edit:
hm =/
its much harder then i thought. in the code there is nothing simular to the other saves. i first tryed to find out something which opens something like tags. but like it seems there is nothing like that^^
but i found a very simular looking part.
in my lvl35 char
Code: [Select]
¿  }ç½   ­¸ Flag@íU©ú6  à   +dôÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ``¦b ¯.and here is a new one.
Code: [Select]
¿  }ç½   L:  FlagØ ãÞ.  à   Kdôÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ``¼n  ¯.but after that bit of the code, it returns into a total chaos.

and the worst is, that the character in which i changed the code, vanished from the character screen in the game.  :?

i am going to try some more things, but i don't think it will work.

No sorry, that wasn't what I meant.

The only way I thought of would require you to extract files, using unhell, from the game archives(the .dat files) and copy the files you want over the files you don't want. Much like how Berit replaced a weapon with another one.


The save files seem to start at the back, and are encrypted(and/or cooked) so it would be quite hard to do it that way. I'm probably not completely correct on the previous points, but modifying your save file, is still not going to be easy.

that sounds much easyer^^
but are this realy files which change the looking?. for hears and faces i can imagine that there are some different meshes for each one. but will i be able to change collor, and how tall or short my Character will be?

and where can i get the unhell programm? the links on the http://www.hellgateaus.info/wiki/ are down.

Yep. but will i be able to change collor, and how tall or short my Character will be? No. Well, you can use hglmodder to change the hair/skin colour, but for height, that's pretty much set from creation of the character.

and where can i get the unhell programm? the links on the http://www.hellgateaus.info/wiki/ are down.
