So as it says in the FAQ on the site, if you mod an armor that you don't have on you won't DC. Once you put it on, you'll DC instantly due to the CRC check.

Proof:


I was on for around 10 minutes before deciding to log off, no DC. So theoretically, you can convert the file from .TGA to .PNG as long as you don't wear said armor.

Just a theory. Thoughts?

Confirmed. I can remove and change armor colors as long as im not wearing the armor. I can also convert it to .PNG

So if we can make it so we can change the color and still have the changed files equal the exact same size, in theory, we can change armor paints.

So now that we know it performs a Hash check, what's next?

Probably going to need a Themida unpacker. Although, editing the launcher in ollydBG might work according to Poly. Look for the error, instead of linking it to a Disconnect, link it to nothing, Game ignores the error and continues.

^Poly's idea and it sounds pretty legit.

Well at least its not Hex Workshop (nightmares). Ask Poly if he can't just nop the error coming out. If the error never happens, neither does the D/C. This game is so cheaply made it just may work Neutral

If this works, can you imagine the possibilities for customized armor paints? It would be pretty epic. But it's really not so awesome seeing the mod you put on for yourself on everyone else. That is to say, if I paint my Rapid Binder red, it'll replace every Rapid Binder that isn't colored with the black contour with a red colored Rapid Binder.

Which would just suck to me...Even though I like the premise of the idea.

Well, there was the CMP (colormod project) from SCO/Old AR. Prophett still has the files *I think*. if this fix works we can ressurect it.

And I'd pretty much keep my rapid for sentimental reasons...

Indeed i do still have CMP [Even though i didn't play SCO/AR, derp >:].

About CMP and Ace, If you try to go download it and use it you'll be dissapointed. It both does and does not work. Kind of hard to explain. You CAN use the textures from it [All the custom gear colors and what not] on gears armors that you don't have.

I.E you can mod the color of a Fox binder. It'll show up on enemies/other players. However, if you try to equip a Fox, it'll DC you instantly.

So yes and no to it working.


As for current color modding projects, it's currently not possible. It'd require far too much work.
I'll still look into it, but as of now, i've stopped working on trying to get passed the CRC check on them.

This is getting a little bit too close to what could shut down modding completely in my opinion.
(But it's interesting and I'll probably work on it as well anyway)

It would be great, but if it's really gonna make this get shut down, then maybe it shouldn't even be attempted.

Exactly the reason i'm stopping haha. Requires far too much editing of actual game files, beyond just simple unpacking/editing images/repacking.

Even though its tampering with game files, it doesnt give you an unfair advantage over everyone else. Besides, we were tampering with game files from the start, and the GMs know this. As far as I can see, its still legit (and I dont see how itll give you an unfair advantage, since you're only trying to bypass crc for modding your OWN armor).

There might be someone, somewhere, who might figure out how to abuse this information, but it doesnt matter if we control the distribution of information (hence why you restricted the repack site for certain people...even though it got leaked anyways...).

I think I have a way to do this, will be attempting tonight (but it's fairly complex and not at all doable for people without a bit of broad knowledge of TCP/IP). We'll see.

I see Azioth - a member in the Airrivals forum can change the armor color, check out this image


So there's a way to do it, can anyone has an idea?

Judging by the LatinHope flag that may be AirRivals.es you are looking at. They have a slightly older version client I think and probably has their paintshop still.

I'm not familiar with Hackshield bypasses for AirRivals.. but keep in mind that it will get active if you modify the client file.

Haven't really had time to work on it unfortunately. Don't know if I'll get a chance, to be honest.
