X405 recently did a little GPTP trick at the Project Hydra discord, where he came up with something interesting. And yes, we even talked about it for a bit, and he's allowing me to share it with you here.

Quote
struct CampaignMission
{
char *missionName;
int missionIndex;
};

SCBW_DATA(CampaignMission, campaignMissions, 0x4FFF60);

void *loadInitCreditsBIN(char *a1) {
int address = 0x4d8df0;
void * result_;
__asm {
mov eax, a1
call address
mov result_, eax
}
return result_;
}

void __cdecl sub_4D9200()
{
if (!multiPlayerMode && !(CHEAT_STATE & CheatFlags::CHEAT_NoGlues) && campaignIndex)
{
for (int i = 0; i < 65; i++)
{
if (campaignMissions[i].missionIndex == CampaignIndex)
loadInitCreditsBIN(campaignMissions[i].missionName);
}
}
// The code above is the original function at address 0x4D9200
// The code below is my patch:
else if (campaignIndex == 0 && CurrentMapFileName)
{
SFileOpenArchive(CurrentMapFileName, 0, 0, &mapArchiveHandle);
HANDLE unusedHandle;
bool establishingShotExists = SFileOpenFileEx(mapArchiveHandle, "rez\\est.txt", 0, &unusedHandle);
if (establishingShotExists)
{
loadInitCreditsBIN_("est");
}
SFileCloseArchive(mapArchiveHandle);
}
}

With this code (directly from discord) embedded and plugged in to a mod, he was able to come up with this (from Pr0nogo):

"My ideology, as a public figure whom writes an opinion column, is very well set: Press IS NOT propaganda. Should a journalist make propaganda for the government, I don't have the slightest corporate shame. I'll mock him."

"The government once called me an 'unreliable source'. It was the greatest compliment I could ever receive, I'd frame it and hang it on the wall. Imagine if I were considered a 'trustworthy man'. I'd change profession."

"I was once tired of the firefights at my doorstep. Now it's gone better - they started bombing."

Responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible for my own breakfast

This is really cool.



all i am is a contrary canary
but i'm crazy for you
i watched you cradling a tissue box
sneezing and sniffling, you were still a fox

Thanks, DeltaCadimus, for your intereset!

I've made it available as a binary: http://www.staredit.net/topic/18221/

If anyone is interested in the code - here's a commit for you. Look around the github repo. If you know what you're doing, you should quickly get an idea on how to replicate it in your project.

This already has been ported to Pr0nogo's Project Hydra.
