1. download hex workshop 4.2 first
2. download Flashfxp
3. look for the offsets
for the characters you want to create in one of the pinned topics at the top. when you find what i'm talking about HIGHLIGHT from Humar to Fomar
and right click on your mouse and select print selected
, you will need these offsets. the Humar offset starts like this
and it keeps going on like that through mags and items for all characters
an offset since your probally wondering is just the reference point for where the bytes for a item begin.
if you look in your hex workshop you will notice the numbers and letters on the far left, these are offsets.
4. the file you need to hack in order to get the items you want a new character
to start with is default.xbe
. you have to put PSO onto your HDD on your xbox and than use Flashfxp to open an FTP from your PC to your xbox, and if you have already put PSO onto the HDD you will open E:/games and you should see PSO and inside PSO you will see the default.xbe. before you start to hack it though i want you to transfer it to your PC to a spot you know you will not erase it.
than rename it default.xbePSOBACKUP.
5. now open Hex Workshop and under file
. you should see your default.xbePSOBACKUP
. you should now see the offsets to the far left i was talking about earlier, remember all they do is count the bytes, a byte being a pair of numbers or letters, so 0000 is two bytes since 00 00 is two pairs of zeros.
if your still with me and not totally lost, click on Edit
, and put in the offset for the Humars weapon
i put it in bold for you. you see it, its 004120F8
and that will take you to the very begining of the weapon bytes for a Humar. just looks like numbers right. well if you notice in the same pinned topic that has your offsets for the characters there are also the bytes for most of the weapons in the game. now compare what you see in Hex Workshop to the saber bytes in the pinned topic. do you see how they match. to change weapons you just replace the saber bytes with the weapon you want to start out with instead. you can do this with all characters and all their items. you can make characters with 5 weapons or armors or mags or items. or any combination. ok after you are done doing all your hacking click on File
and than Save As
and save the file as default.xbe
. DO NOT JUST HIT SAVE THIS WILL OVERWRITE YOUR BACKUP
. the reason i want you to save it as default.xbe is when you FTP it to your xbox you can overwrite the original default.xbe. if you want to learn how to make mags i have a topic started where i was teaching myself how to do it and put it in the forum so others can use it as reference. also if you want to know how to put percentages on your weapons i can help you with that. i just wrote this to get you pointed in the right direction. good luck and happy hacking
