    Modifying an online game

    I am hosting several (16) online games [Halo Pc.] I have the ability to uniquely name each server, using up to 64 spcs for the name. But over the years people have added ALT Codes into thier names to PUSH there serevers to the top of list. I did to. Now I find it necessary to push it even further to the top of list. I can do so by eliminating the unique names of the servers and Hex Editing each version of the executible files "Default" name.

    And this works, kinda. I am limited in this manner to only 26 spc and I NEED more. What I have been trying to learn is how to place a "goto" to another location where i can utilize a longer name and then return to that loaction.

    Could you share that knowledge with me or better yet a location that can teach me.
    I promise that I have read the FAQ and tried to use the Search to answer my question.

    Ok Thanks.
    Found it and looks like a good editor.
    But I dont see how that will help me.
    I need the knowledg on how to do it too.
    Not the software alone.

    Nobody will do the work for you.

    But with this software, or another debugger, find the memory address that holds the 26 character name(s).

    See WHAT determines the length limit.

    Find POINTERs to such memory location.

    Change the Pointers to a new place where you have written the (longer) name you want.

    Just some ideas

    I wonder if the listing server (gamespy?) check the length of the string for the server name.
    A picture worth 1K words (or .5K DWORDS).
