Binary Patcher

Author File Description
chab [2014-12-20 : fix max selected units, fix file locking issue, add some other options, ROR_API support...]

Please use CustomizeAOE instead of BinaryPatcher unless you are a developer.
CustomizeAOE is easier to use and contains more features.

Program forum topic.

See also AOEDaemon.

Required files for Windowed mode

This is a new tool to replace "CustomizeAOE" I released previously.
The program is a tool that allows you to modify any type of file, provided you're working with fixed offset and file size.

Beginners ? Try the Wizard option (F2), make shortcuts...

You can load/save/edit binary technical information about what is to be changed in the target file, and also defined consistency checks on target file (to check that the file actually is the one that was expected).
These information can be stored in /ini Files.

Then, you can use these definitions to customize at will the target file's supplied options.

This program is supplied with ini files (for AoE 1.0b and 1.0c) including...
- ConfigAOE10x_options.ini : some options for AOE, similar to "CustomizeAOE"
- AOE10x_resolution.ini : allows you to set any resolution in RoR. You'll have to type the appropriate values for horizontal/vertical options. You'll also have to deal with interfac.drs by yourself if you want beautiful menus.
/!\ 1.0b is not always maintained now...

1) Run the EXE...
2) Load one of the INI files supplied
3) Select the target file empiresX.exe or a copy of this file
4) Edit target file and choose what you prefer among the options !
(4) : use variables to change game resolution in 3 second: var1=horizontal resolution, var2=vertical resolution.

Windowed mode : you need to get config.dll and wndmode.dll from VEG's mod (+config.xml). Only the windowed mode is implemented in the provided INI file, other VEG's features may crash.

You could use this tool to do any other stuff, just use the UI to configure the binary information, save it to a .ini file and go !

Always BACKUP your target files !
If you used older versions of .ini file, you may have to reset their options to default before using new ones.

Comments are welcome.

It's a very good program to patch files.

Additional Comments:
Adding some tips on how to find binary data to replace should be good.

AOE10b_resolution HPos-map fix
Description=Horizontal position of the game map.\nDefault 0x031b = 795\nShould be = HorizontalResolution - 229
Buffer_OFF=68 1B 03 00 00
Buffer_ON=68 1B 03 00 00

I'm also interested on ROR 1.0b and AOE resolution data
