* Run the City of Heroes' beta client. This only works with the beta client because the memory address is different on the live one.

ARGH   guess I will have to be patient...I think I deleted the beta   :(

Is there someplace you can still download the beta client from at this point? I had to redo my computer right before shut down and no longer have it

UPDATE!

http://repo.cohtitan.com/icon/icon.exe

This build now unlocks all store-bought and paragon rewards costume parts, which covers about 95% of the items in the game. That includes ones that weren't "released" yet, like the Black Knight set (though you'll need the beta client for those).

Granting the old-style unlockables proved to be a bad idea as it also unlocks ALL customizable weapons regardless of powerset, which makes the list quite hard to navigate. So unfortunately the things like Rularuu weapons and the pumpkin head can't be accessed normally right now.

However, if you really need to use them, this version also includes a somewhat secret "-n" flag that you can give it, which will activate the game's super-secret NPC edit mode, giving you access to everything, including NPC/dev-only parts. You can make some truly hideous characters with those, enjoy!

Instructions For the Mac Edition (this should work both with the I23 and I24 clients):

Wow, I'm actually really surprised that worked. I thought this was going to be a pain requiring a custom port, like Sentinel+ did.

I'm quite amazed that Cider even supports some of those API calls. Not something you'd normally see used.

Oh Codewalker, you've made me so happy! Thank you so much!

I have a question about a term though, what does 'you need the beta client' mean? I thought it meant putting it into the beta folder so I put icon.exe in there too but it said it was an unworkable build, so clearly I was wrong.

EDIT: Hm, well, I turned it on again and had the parts now in the regular coh folder so I suppose it all worked out anyway. Yay ignorance!

Seriously, though. Thank you so much. You're awesome.

Oh great and mighty Lord Codewalker, having been playing with the costume creator for the better part of the past four and a half hours, I am fully prepared to establish a cult in your honor.

....Woah.


I think there's a reason we couldn't do this in the game.  IT'S SO BADASS IT WOULD CAUSE PEOPLE TO DROP DEAD FROM AWESOMENESS.   :o



Codewalker, thanks so much for getting this up and running.  If nothing else, this is going to be a fantastic tool for pen & paper RPG players to make NPCs.

This seems really great, though I'm unfortunately not somewhere I can give it a try right now.  Once it seems stable you should probably make a new thread for this and any updates to it that come along(and get that topic pinned).

If nothing else, at least we aren't losing access to the WHOLE game anymore.

Hey TheManga, thanks for putting up the Mac specific process. It really looks very straight forward, but somehow I end up with "Error. Failed to launch process".

I tried this with with the regular client and the beta client. Identical results. This is on a MBP running 10.6.8. (It's my COH computer and it worked fine, even though it's Snow Leopard).

Any thoughts what parts I may have to poke?

Thanks a lot.

/em praise

I also have booted the Beta client and left it running in Character Creator mode from before shutdown to today. :)

Now... if we can identify that skewed city background image in the appropriate PIGG archive and change it to a green screen/neutral background...

Kudos to you Codewalker!  8)


... aaand this is my first post on the Titan Network. Hi guys!  ;D
