Okay folks, I am going through digging up and re-remembering some old knowledge about hacking Outwars.
First and foremost outwars.mml aka the multiplayer mission list. Lets open it up in a hex editor:
Very simple. Name of the .mis file located in /netmisn followed by some whitespace. I have added a few more:
The astute amongst you may notice hey ass isn’t a real mission, the game agrees and since there is no ass.mis it throws an error and immediately quits:
Lesson here being, don’t screw up the .mml file!
As soon as you add more than 15 entries to this file, the game actually renders a scroll bar but there seems to be some hard coded limit that prevents it from properly handling more missions. No matter, nobody is every going to play anything but anub1m anyway 😛
