Please read before asking anything here

Hello.

Here are some common notes about Asian games made with Unreal Engine. I'm a bit tired to answer the same questions again and again, so decided to put them into this topic.

- Most games has encrypted executables. I can't do anything with the game without looking at code, but looking at "garbage" (encrypted code) will not help at all. When people provides me decrypted executable (sometimes, "dumped" executable - which will not work, but still could be analyzed) - this may work for me. Don't ask me how to "dump" - I don't know Smiley If some professional would write a tutorial - that would be really good.

- Most online games receives updates frequently. Not just Asian's games, but really all online games. Sometimes updates has newer package version, which breaks compatibility with UModel. In some cases, this is just a version number change, in some cases - engine improvement, in some cases - protection against content extraction/modification.

- For most of supported games, UModel detects game by package version number. But if version changed, UModel will detect it as "Unreal engine N", but not as particular game. You may override this behavior with "-game=xxxx" command line option, or by explicitly selecting the game with startup GUI. Later I'm going to make nicer "Error dialog" window which would suggest user about possible options if UModel would crash, but currently it's still in my TODO list.

- I'm not working with pre-alpha, pre-beta etc games - those definitely will receive an update breaking compatibility, so I'll need to perform all my work again.

- Most games in this forum section has similar content, so if some game is not supported - please consider looking at other games. It's not worth for me to spend hours of hard work just to allow someone to extract some model or texture.

- I'm not working in game modding area.

- Please don't ask me for download links - I'm never downloading games.

碰友们好

这有一些关于虚幻引擎制作的亚洲游戏的常见事项。我已经对一遍又一遍重复墨迹同一个问题感到有点疲惫了,所以有些事咱得先说清楚喽。

1.大多数游戏的可执行文件都是加密的。如果不让我看到这些游戏的代码我可是真的啥都干不了,光看一堆“垃圾”(加密的代码)真心啥用没有。只有提供给我已经破解的可执行文件(有时候,“转储”的可执行文件-虽然也不能用但仍然可以用来做一些分析)-才对我有用。别问我咋“转储”-我也不知道 ;D如果有哪个高手写个教程啥的-那真是太给力了。

2.大多数网游会频繁地更新。不止亚洲的游戏,几乎所有网游都这样。有时候是更新个新的封包版本,从而破坏了与UModel的兼容性:有时候就是变个版本号;有时候是提高引擎性能;有时候是对游戏内容的导出/修改进行保护。

3.对于多数支持的游戏,UModel识别游戏是靠封包的版本号。但是如果版本发生改变,UModel则会将其识别为“Unreal engine N”而不是具体的某个游戏。你可以通过命令行“-game=xxxx”来修正这种情况,或者在GUI里明确选择这个游戏。将来我会做一个如果UModel崩溃就会建议用户可以做什么的更帅气的“错误对话框”窗口,但是目前这玩意还在我的计划表里。

4.我不会去动还在封测内测公测各种测试中的游戏-它们必然会收到各种破坏(与UModel的)兼容性的升级,从而导致我必须重新开始所有的工作

5.在这个论坛里,大多数游戏都有一部分相似的内容,所以如果某些游戏不支持,你可以考虑在其他游戏里找找。这不值得我去苦干N个小时却只是为了让某人提取几个模型或贴图。

6.我不混游戏改造领域

7.别向我要游戏下载链接,我从不下载游戏

I think this is Chinese translation of my first post in this thread. But I have no idea why it is here.

That's not just Asian people. There are many Russian people who have troubles with English as well. There are not so many countries in the world where English education is on the good level.
