This is one of the limitations.You're ignoring my other point, though.
Not quite. You cannot edit gun info, and the BL hacking tool is also .exe editing.Anything I could do with Cave Editor and the NPCTBL Hacking Tool is fair game right?
God bless dunc, our lord and savior.
Well it's been quite a confusing mess today, but dunc has decided to step in and is going to host the next contest. So, ignore all of this stuff and wait until May!! And make sure to join the Discord server if you haven't already, because most of the important discussion goes on in there. Also: it's important to note that dunc is our trusted and respected leader, so the contest is in good hands with him
have fun with like two entriesI will still be holding this competition if anybody is still interested.
I think people don't realise that asm hacks don't make a good mod. Quality game design makes a good mod. A turd with icing on top is still a turd.I'm definitely entering. This is probably the only modding competition I could possibly win since there's no ASM wizardry to compete against.
I think you'll find that a majority of the mods on the forums have their .exes changed in some way. (except very old ones)Most of the greatest mods on these forums don't use asm hacks at all.
Again, too much.I think I might cook up something small for this to put myself out there. Is it alright if I edit map properties, or is that changing too much?
Most only resort to small edits, if any. Not major hacks that involve more than editing a small value here and there.I think you'll find that a majority of the mods on the forums have their .exes changed in some way. (except very old ones)
I was mainly talking about mods like Hacker Story and Critter TD that rely heavily on ASM hacks. Also, I think most mods are hacked in some way. Whether that be one or two custom weapons, or just the name of a map, it's still changing the exe.I think people don't realise that asm hacks don't make a good mod. Quality game design makes a good mod. A turd with icing on top is still a turd.

Even if the editor modifies the EXE in some unexpected way when you don't mean to, you can simply switch the EXE back out with one provided by zxin when you're done. As long as you're not messing with stuff you shouldn't be, this shouldn't cause any problems.oh yeah that's another point, BL users are fucked because BL automatically modifies the exe doesn't it?
