Heh, I guess there really isn't a difference between cooking and magic, at least with me it's not. I'll sometimes just throw a bunch of shit together and hope it works out.

I think I'd be a good magician. ;)

Modding games is a challenging and time honored tradition.

First, you need to be an expert programmer, preferably in a language like C that translates well to (and from) assembly code.

You use a disassembler/debugger to convert the machine code into x86 assembler instructions. Then you use a tool that converts the asm file into C code. Unfortunately, the code it generates is functionally sound but usually more verbose and obtuse than the original game code. Fortunately, modern reverse-engineering tools will at least format it nicely so you have some hope of reading and understanding it.

Make your changes, compile, test, rinse and repeat.

Or did you mean modding games that were intended to be modded? That's easy...

Friggin C??!! Well I guess it's been done, but I would hate to do it in C. C++ would be hella easier.

Sure, we'll make a step by step guide, it's not like there's anything better to do. Check google, C already linked you. If you're using Half Life(which if you don't have, you should be shot repeatedly), then search for a program called World Craft. Easy to use, and you can find tutorials for it. Learning C++ wouldn't hurt, it's not too bad. Here's some good tutorials. http://www.cprogramm...m/tutorial.html

And if you finish the mod, I'll test it for you. For a small fee.

May I make the suggestion that you try searching the vast database that is the world wide web before asking people at a Nerf site. If you come up with nothing, then ask here, otherwise you will find tons of FAQs for just about anything from modding games to fabricating bionic legs for your pet dog on the internet. Search engines are just wonderful. Really, they are.

Here are some incase you don't know any.

Metacrawler
Google
Yahoo
Freeporn

One of those is a joke, guess it right and you get a cookie.

It would help greaty, Trent, if you would tell us the game you plan on modifying. There's a big difference between downloading a mod patch (such as CS) or actually reprogramming the game to change it.

well I don't really have any specific game in mind (except for half-life) I just want to know how to do it so when I do get a game I want to mod I know how to.

I have made half a mod for Diablo II: LoD. It sorta matters what game your trying though. There's lots of tutorials for lots of games on the internet.
And JSkater I would suggest using a rubber chicken, not a top hat. Silly wibble-gibble. Hey I don't have Half-Life! :wacko:

This isn't something you can read a write up on, and mod a game. This also isn't something we can "write a how-to guide" for you. That's just insane.

That's like asking a goat to write a how-to on getting North Korea to halt their nuclear arms projects. Ain't gonna' happen, cheif. My suggestion to you would be to start simple like I'm doing with WarCraft III. It comes with a World Editor that edits (almost) every variable in the game, and makes it somewhat easy compared to learning C or C++.

Also sounds to me like you're too lazy to look it up for yourself and you want us to do it for you. Get of your fuckin' lazy ass and read up on it, Jesus. A game can't mod itself (well...with the exception of Half-Life) so if you don't put out, you won't "get out."

Ok, I've stood by long enough, if you want to mod a game, go to college and get a degree in computer science first. Then go to art school and get a degree in 3d art design. And then maybe after three or four years in the feild, you might be able to get it going with about 9 other people on a team. Look at it this way skippy, I'm three years into college for computers, and I wouldn't be able to scratch the surface.
