Attention Mac people:  The process I've outlined for the Mac Edition is very fragile.  There's a possibility that pasting the text into the Info.plist slightly wrong may cause the entire process to fail.

Since that's the weak point in the process, I'm going to see if I can get Codewalker or TonyV to host a carefully crafted Info.plist so that we're all using the same one.

Save it before you get to the power screen.....then it will save as a costume file.   I discovered the same thing.   (or  just back up until you are back in the costume creation screen and save it then)

aaah haaaa, ty so much, that worked!

Also, black knight pieces too? Hell yes! *man hugs Codewalker*

I didn't see the ascension pieces there, would the -n thing work  for that?

Yeah, the way ascension is unlocked is... stupid.

I'm going to try to figure out a way to do it, but its way more complex than anything Icon is doing so far.

In the meantime, they are accessible with -n

I'm having issues getting mine to download. I click the link, and it brings up a page for me to click the download, and it does (It will not allow me to choose where to save the file initially, and i don't know how to change that or if I need to) Once the download is complete, I click on the file it downloaded and click "run" and it gives me "File failed to launch" error or something of the nature. I'm running a Window 7 computer. If anyone has any assistance or guidance, that would be really helpful :) Thanks!
It's me.

When editing, you edit the target right? Just tried and it said it wasn't a valid path, what am I doing wrong?

Cannot thank you enough bro!

Make sure there aren't quotes around the -n part or it will think that's part of the filename as well.

You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar, all that, AND a big ol' bag of chips.
I will go down with this ship.  I won't put my hands up in surrender.  There will be no white flag above my door.  I'm in love, and always will be.  Dido

I'm just getting a "Black Magic Failed!" error message when trying to run the program.  Maybe my version of the game isn't updated fully?  I'm trying this out on my laptop which admittedly might not have the most up-to-date CoH installation around(out of town until thursday- I'm sure it'll work at home but figured I'd give it a shot here).

Not sure what info I could provide that might help.  Windows 7 though.

You probably have a slightly old version.

It's interesting, to get that particular message, you have to have a client that is VERY close to either the I23 or I24 version, but just a tiny bit off.

I have a feeling my laptop's install is partially updated or something bizarre like that.  I'm probably a fringe case.  I only use this thing at school, which had the download server blocked about 80% of the time, and the times it didn't it would shut off pretty quick into any download.

I'll make sure it works on my actual, complete Live and Beta installs at home Thursday night just to be sure though.

But thanks again for making this possible, especially with NPC parts.

Wow! Thank you so much for this. I'm still trying to figure out the -n bit, not sure where and how to edit that, but I just wanted to offer you a free commission, you totally deserve it! Just PM me and I'll get the details.

Thanks again!

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!

-n seems to cause a bit of flakiness.  When you start "-n" I'm getting it where it bypasses AT selection and powers selection.  So you get Archery/Devices.  This makes it harder to take pics in the Power customization window if you want something that isn't overlapped by the costume editor UI.

Also, -n unlocks the ARMS slider.

So you get nasty things like this:



and this



and this!




Still, I perservered and Steely Blue Statesmarauder Brawler was born!
