Structure of client and host files

Post by anubis » Wed Apr 18, 2007 10:26 am

Does anyone know of a mapping of all the client and host files? I have a couple of addons that I have mapped out, but rather than a ton of trial and error, I am hoping that someone already has the structures.

A web search gave me some basic information (like the structure of SHip??.dat) but there are a lot of holes (for example, how and where the checksums are stored, what I can do without the Tim Continium coming, etc.

Does that information exist?

I'd suggest you talk to Stefan Reuther. He can probably provide you what you're looking for.

PM me w/ your email & I can give you what I used for the AoA addon; found a listing of file structures & a C++ library that simplifies the file handling.

N/P, just glad I could help out... although every person I help makes it that much more work I'll have to do to get ahead of the pack for next scenario contest, dagnabbit!
