  • Pathologic 2 modding?
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/pathologic | 10 Apr 2022
    Sooo, P2 modding is not very well documented so far - what I know is that it's easy to replace things like textures and sounds using AssetStudio and UABE together. The dialogue and many of the gameplay files are in plaintext or XML, and can be edited freely (once you know what they do). Furthermore, you can use DNSpy to edit the .net files included with the game (this is how the published mod Bound Again added effects to items, IIRC).

    It might be possible to create a mod to remove the treasury penalty, but I end up using dnSpy to patch Assembly-CSharp.dll (EconomyManager.SimulationStepImpl) to remove the treasury penalty. I now get 500k+ more in tax revenue.

  • [GUIDE] Inscryption Mod Development
    1 project | reddit.com/r/inscryption | 17 Jan 2022
    To make a mod for the game, you first need to be capable of reverse engineering it. For code examination, use a C# decompilation tool like DnSpy. By using this tool to open the game's code, which resides in \Inscryption_Data\Managed\Assembly-CSharp.dll, you can view the code written for the game. This is absolutely critical for any mod. You cannot edit code that you cannot see.   I also recommend having other tools to examine the game. A tool like uTinyRipper allows you to effectively export the entire game, and with a simple drag and drop it becomes a Unity project. Note: This version of the game is completely broken. It does not work at all, and cannot be made to. This is just a helpful visual aide, so you know how scenes are laid out and what objects are where. Don't bother trying to make it run in the Unity editor, as this is a waste of time.   Editor scripts can also be used to export assets directly from the Unity Editor, and the Unity Editor will also be necessary to convert any new assets that come with your mod into asset files which can be loaded at runtime. Other tools, like DevXDevelopment, AssetStudio, and UABE can also be useful, but this is the minimum you need to get up and going.

  • Compiling .NET into Native
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 8 Jan 2022
    However, this is at the cost of inadequate security and performance. Decompilers for .NET (such as DnSpy) is so good that an attacker can get almost the exact source code from a .NET executable. Obfuscation would be an easy fix to this — a great example is "virtualization," where the original MSIL code is encrypted, and during runtime, it is decrypted and executed.

    Using a program like dnSpy you can open .net executables and read/modify the code. You might need to launch it as admin in order to save the file.
