Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum but I have played with every single game related to the three kingdoms world (pc, ps2, ps3 and soon ps4!) since Dynasty Warriors 2 and ROTK VII. My preferred characters are Lu Bu, Gao Shun and Zhang Liao; but I would like to know more about the characters of the Three Kingdoms even if I have already read the novel.
It's a great pleasure to enter in your forum because I don't know personally any fan of ROTK games (here in Italy they are not appreciated much). Even though I enjoyed playing with every Koei game about ROTK, the ones that i like most are Dynasty Tactics 2, ROTK X and Dynasty Warriors 4, while the worst in my opinion are all Warriors Orochi with the exception of the first one and Dynasty Warriors 6.
Well, I wrote this post because I have found out a way to mod Rotk X (SLUS-21202). I'm using a ntsc version with PCSX (PCSX2 1.1.0.r5530 - compiled on Jan 19 2013) using a NTSC bios (I own them both, it's all legal!) and Cheat Engine 6.4 (32 bit)
My aim is to create Lu Bu with his original body model. I must thanks Ray Man for this awesome video on rotk viii modding, without him I would never have been able to do what I did. Here is the link of the first of his videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ghzsh7CDe4
If I broke any of the laws of the forum please eliminate my post and send me a message in order to permit me to fix it, I have already saved this message so I won't lose it
1° step: create a character with at least one low stat (I chose INT because I know that in Luo Yang you can improve it)
2° step: put him in a scenario and go to school
3° step: open cheatengine when you have almost gained a level, select the computer+magnifying glass icon and select pcsx2 with rotk X running
4° step: put the value you are going to improve (for instance my INT is 26) and then click new scan. There should be many lines (if your pcsx2 image get stuck click pause and then resume)
5° step: when you level up your ability search for the new number in cheatengine (next scan)
6° step: right now you should have only few options left because only your value has just passed from the previous number to the next (I have only one line with 27), right click it and choose add selected addresses to the addresslist in order to save it below
7° step: right click the line below and select browse this memory region
8° step: well, what you see now http://postimg.org/image/kis8emvuz/
is the map of the game: copy from these numbers 00 00 00 00 39 to these 4C 75 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 42 75. They are our own Lu Bu's values
9° step: my created Lu Bu has 100 ldr, 100 war, 27 int, 100 pol and 100 chr, so there are a lot of 64 (the hex value for 100). You can mod them freely http://postimg.org/image/l7alrherh/
if you want to modify your gold and fame you must follow the same procedure
10° step: the final step is fairly simple (I hope as simple as the whole tutorial!). copy this 38 values 03 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 D9 00 00 00 AB 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 9C 02 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF 9D 02 over these
00 00 00 00 39 01 00 00 70 17 7D 00 10 00 00 00 07 00 00 00 19 03 00 00 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 B8 00 00 00 A8 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 9C 02 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF 9D 02 (i put 9d 02 so you are able to recognize the location)
11° step: enjoy your perfect Lu Bu!!! http://postimg.org/image/gzhphc7q1/
(remember that the first 03 is the body model, the second 03 is the portrait, so, for istance, if you want you can do this! http://postimg.org/image/hlnkz5nd9/
