    By using IL2CppDumper along with the game's global-metadata.dat file, we can generate headers and structs that we can use with Ghidra, a tool for disassembling code. Once we load Engage and these headers and structs into Ghidra, we can look for a particular function called App.BattleMath$$_IsProbabilityHit. This function is provided a displayed hit (or, as Intelligent Systems calls it, ratio) and is responsible for determining whether or not that attack will actually hit. Ghidra will try to automatically decompile the assembly code into something more readable, and while the results are sometimes mixed, here it's pretty clear what's going on. We can see how, when the displayed hit is less than 51 (or when it's 100), it simply multiplies the displayed hit by 100, and when the displayed hit is 51 or greater, it uses the sin function as described earlier:

    There's plenty of resources on decompiling apks. An APK is just a zip basically, and it contains an file & and global-metadata file. You can use Il2cppdumper ( ) to restore the Assembly-CSharp. Then you can use IlSpy or just open the assembly or the dump.cs in visual studio that gets produced.

    Download and run Find and load and global-metadata.dat from your combined apk folder when it asks. This will create a bunch of files. The ones we care about right now are the ones in the DummyDll folder.

    if the game is compiled with IL2CPP you can convert it to a dummy Assembly-CSharp file using IL2Cpp Dumper -
