Tutorial to create an Hext patch for HextLaunch
« on: 2015-08-28 09:24:12 »
This is a quick tutorial to create for example an exe patch for DLPB's Hextlaunch:

Tools needed:
DLPB's tools 2.0
Dup2
Notepad

-run dup2 and start a new project (name doesn't matter)
-add a new module: right click in the column -> Add -> Offset patch
-double click on the new module -> in Compare Files choose the original file and the patched file -> compare those two
-right click on the generated table and choose save table as text
-open the text file with Notepad, use the column selection (alt + left mousebutton) and mark everything under Old Byte
-if all is selected press "="; kill the first two lines (this stuff with "offset", "old and new Bye"), save it
-place the new text file in the In folder of HextSort
-run the program and hit Enter in the out folder should be now the new file for HextLaunch
