Editing the debugger exe

Post by AnthonyBF2 »

Changes you can make to the debugger game executable. You'll need to be using the "No DVD" version.

Open the file in hex editor, and go to the offsets listed below and make the specified changes;

1) Removing the green block so your whole screen can be viewable
Go to offset 003ffc0a and change the single byte AA to 00

2) Getting resolution of 1024x768 - debugger game will still be in windowed mode
Go to offset 00347769 and changes the bytes 80 02 00 00 B9 E0 01 to 00 04 00 00 B9 00 03

If you want a different resolution, edit the data to a bit of data from the below list, submitted by JimmyAngler
1024x768: 00 04 00 03
1152x864: 80 04 60 03

1600x900: 40 06 84 03
1600x1200: 40 06 B0 04

Does this affect the code console (the thing that pops up when you press the tilde)?

WOW. Thank you. I was waiting for this so long.

Compared to deleting the thread for hacking the game?
