    Editing

    It appears that www.cricketgames.com has a breakthrough. No editor has been released as yet, but they have something downloadable which may help with encrypting the code...

    Nope - it's true.

    I'll give some decryption a shot over the weekend.

    DataP.db contains team names, abbreviations, ground info & partnership details

    DataT.db contains player data - the names & initials make plenty of sense but the ability/attributes don't yet - as they're all various Hexadecimal characters which I haven't got my head round yet.

    Any one fancing lending a hand with the disassembly?

    Get me on MSN - minardineil2000 @ hotmail . com

    I would, but unfortunately I haven't got one of the programs which is needed for the download. :!(

    Just about to add you to my MSN.

    Should be. Not promising though.

    I'd like to help out with the decryption. I tried to use the tool on the cricketgames.com site but it didn't work. I do have microsoft visual c++ .net installed. Neil, do you think you could send me a decrypted database file, my MSN is iedirisi@hotmail.com.
    Maybe once we figure out the format of the database, someone could write an easy to use editor for everyone to use.
    I suspect it shouldn't be too hard to to that.

    If anyone can figure it out it's our resident ginger nerd.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Status Report

    I've isolated the individual players, and worked out which hex digits control the dates of the birth (for anyone else who's got this far, it's the first two before the 40 for each guy) - just not entirely sure how they control them.

    Result is a lot of brain hurting, and need for sleep.

    Will keep the work up tomorrow - we can do this!

    Would appreciate anyone who gives this a shot over the UK-night to have a shot at playing with the age digits and trying to work out what they change and how much by.

    Note to all - save the decompiled file in a hex editor, re-encrypt it, then start another new game on ICC. It's a slow process, but you get there. I suggest we concentrate on sc1 (Ashes 1948) - less data so easier to follow.

    Get your DLLs here if required:

    Brilliant work Neil. Cricket Web might be the first to get an editor out and possibly even an update thanks to your work so far (i hope). If this happens it will make Cricket Web an even better site . Because there are alot of followers of ICC.

    Anyway keep it up Neil
