Re: Hex editing stats
Thanks for the reply but I am not referring to the memory addresses of a running process.  The file I mentioned is the save game file for a my character and the offsets in the file will not change between Linux and Windows systems as it is a binary file.  Also, the test edit that I made to a skill worked and I was able to verify it by looking at the skills window while I was dying after reloading the game.

The file and memory addresses are formatted very similarly, however the linux version does have some slight variations to some of the addresses.

cheat engine is probably the easiest way to filter which bytes you're looking for (works for both running process and opening a raw file) as you'll be able to leverage the search and filter function, however you can probably use whatever application you want to read the bytes, and then compare them next to each other across acouple of different characters. that's how I'd do it anyways  :)

As for you other symptoms from editing the file (bleeding out, dying instantly, etc) usually doesn't occur 'naturally' from editing a skill. More likely you're accidently overflowing some of the other bytes out of place into the wrong spot.

Re: Generated map image
Just wanted to share this, was able to generate an image of the game map from data and save it to file, kind of neat to look at.
Thanks for sharing this. Agreed, pretty neat. Opens up a lot of external possibilities.

In your embedded screenshot, it appears, this completely bypasses the fog of war (FoW), is that bypass, mandatory by nature or optional?
Did you create any open source code on this or alternatively is there any public information/writing on your experiment?

Heres the gist of it;

here I'm using memory to read/write the bitmap data.
but you could alternatively pull similar data from the files described here:

According to URW Fandom Wiki - [Playing With UrW Files], WORLD.PLM contains the map with fog of war included.

Possibly in memory somewhere as well.

Also note, completely possible to render the full map tiles (hence storing the file paths). Was working on a prototype in the old URWCharacterMenu, which was more or less a successful proof of concept. -- tried to find an old picture of it, but couldn't :(.

edit: Oh also something i forgot to mention; I get the tile ID's/Path info from debug_ter-tiles.txt, located in the URW folder while you're playing.

edit2: saw your post in suggestions, working on something for it...

Fantastic! Once again thank you for a fully detailed response.
I will look into the memory method at first chance and will keep an eye out for your potential next utility release.

Some progress:

working out an issue with size constraints (which is why the tiles are scaled to 6x7 currently)
Ignore gimp file size, actual file size is 25.2mb

Re: Cheat a "permanent" companion? You've got good intuition. Nice find :)
