Galaxy on Fire 2: Tip (Editing game files using hex. “Ships.bin”)

1. Always save before modifying files.

2. If the ship has 0 slots for one of the types of weapons. DO NOT CHANGE it – otherwise the game will crash.

3. It is advisable to change the parameters of the ship before buying it from the store.

Today we will analyze the file Ships.bin for components.

For example, I will use several tables taken from the original.

Based on them, you yourself can check them, find and change any ship for yourself.

Ship: Dace (ID 4)

The easiest way to search for a ship is in a file Ships.bin by the values ​​of Protection and Cargo compartment.

For example in a ship Salvehn – to find it without knowing the specific address (1st column). You need to translate the values ​​that you see in the game in the form hex (Defense) 156 => 9C and (Cargo bay) 110 => 6E. Now it is easy to find sequentially in hex “00 00 00 9C 00 00 00 6E”. Most likely it will be the only one in the entire file. Now we change the values. For example, the Defense is 55 and the Cargo compartment is 250 and we get the following sequence “00 00 00 37 00 00 00 fa”.

P.S. Converting numbers from HEX to regular ones and vice versa – you can use the windows calculator by switching to the “programmer” mode or by pressing alt + 3.
