  Hex Editing
This Page has been viewed 93,631 times
By Framerate

When I first heard about hex editing, I heard the word ‘hex’ and I though ‘Oh no this is going to be hard.’ Quite the contrary as a matter of fact. It is actually easier than installing video card drivers. Now it may seem confusing at first, but it will soon become an instinct.
First you will need to download the offset list from Iron_Forge’s website. You can download it or just save the offset list to your favorites. Either way is fine. You then need to download Hex Workshop, which is the hex editing tool that I will be using for this tutorial. Got it all. If the answer is yes then you are in good shape.

You aren’t ready to mod your map just yet. First you need to make a backup copy of you bloodgulch.map file found in your MAPS directory. In order to copy the file you need to get to it. You double click on My Computer and then go (CsmileMicrosoft Games>Halo>MAPS. In the maps folder you will find your bloodgulch.map file. Right click on that and scroll down to ‘Copy’. Then you paste the file into a directory of your choice. Just remember where you left the backup.

NOTE: Before you edit any map you ALWAYS make a backup. If there is some sort of problem and you can’t fix it then you will have to reinstall Halo or find a caring friend to send you their file.

Now you are ready to edit Blood Gulch. Open up Hex Workshop. Once you do that then open up your bloodgulch.map file from your MAPS directory. Then open up the Blood Gulch offset list from Iron Forge’s site. Today you will learn how to make the Warthog LAAG shoot Fuel Rod pulses. First you search for the LAAG projectile offset. In this case in is called lasma Cannon’ and the offset is ‘Bullet’ and right below it is ’vehicles/warthog/bullet’. The offset is ‘00856BF0’. Now we go back to Hex Workshop and we use a nifty tool that makes Hex Workshop stand out over all of the other hex editing programs. Got to Edit and scroll down to ‘GoTo’. In the box type in the offset and click ‘Ok’. Notice that you see different letters and numbers. That means that you are on the right path. If you don’t see this then you did something wrong along the way and you need to go back and redo the tutorial. This is what it should look like:

Now on to making the LAAG shoot Fuel Rod pulses.

Now that you know how to find the hex data for the object you want to edit you need to know how to exchange hex value. Go back to the Blood Gulch offset list and look for ‘Plasma Cannon’ under ‘Projectiles’. The hex value is right next to the offset. In this case the offset is ‘7C118440’. Go back to Hex Workshop. Your cursor should already be in the right spot, just start typing the value mentioned above. Don’t worry about the ’40’ part at the end. All of the hex values end with this. Now all you need to do is save your edited version of Blood Gulch over the one in your MAPS directory, boot up Halo, and test it out. If you have any questions then just post them in the Mod Forums. But please use the search button before you post. This will reduce in flaming, which is of most concern.

BTW the offsets are in .rar format, you need Winrar to open them. Search it in Google.
