Temple of Apshai the Trilogy - TSearch

Postby WillieSea » Tue Dec 26, 2006 7:01 am

Is this a format that would help in creating your own edits for games? I think this would be the most universal as far as usage would go.

This is my usual way of doing things. The screen is from the TSearch 'Hex Editor' window panel.
Simply search for your name (backwards as usual) and from there you can find the location of each item.

Notes:
Bow 0=No, 1=Yes
Shield 0=None, 1=Small, 2=Large
Armor 0 thru 5?
Weapon 0 thru 6?
The bonus would be 0-9 for positive, FF-F7 for negative.
Any bonus on the weapon seems to make it always a Magic Sword,
no matter what the weapon number is.
Attributes would be:
Dexterity
Constitution
Strength
Ego
Intuition
Intelligence

I might dig out my old game save editor code and knock one up for this game.

Which version of the game are you using so I can test the editor with the same version of the saved-games etc.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Its the one from 'Planet Emulation' titled Temple of Apshai Trilogy (1986)(Epyx).st.

I am using the TOS from the same site titled TOS v1.02 (1987)(Atari Corp)(Mega ST)(UK).img.

But if you are searching through the steem memory, then it should not matter what version or steem setup you have. Your memory locations will be different. The image just shows you, where, in relation to your characters name, each cheat resides.

I used it to make a trainer using the Trainer Maker Kit. But there would be no sense in uploading it here since they are computer specific. No one else would be able to use it. But this would help anyone make their own trainers if they want to play the game.

Aah .. the above screenshot isn't a dump of the saved game from Temple showing me where all the lovely statistics are hidden?

oops .. :(

I would guess the 'save game' would be in the same format, they usually are.

Will dig it out tomorrow at some point and have a look.

Trying to remember which of my old routines I can butcher the least to get a demo cheat routine up and running from. Think the one I did for Conflict should be the easiest as didn't display any title pics etc.

This is one annoying game to say the least. Going to have to remove that keyboard buffer in $484 as you can press the direction keys once too many times and the little guy goes off wandering. The mouse control is also abysmal!

Ah well .. saved games are even easier. A whole 86 bytes to store the whole character stats. Shouldn't be too hard to knock up a char editor :)
