    Dead Island How To Swap One Weapon For Golden One

    For those that know how to HEX edit your Dead Island unencypted GS:

    I have a Windows Command Prompt program I created called WpnChg (Weapon Change). It assumes you know how to HEX edit a GS. It also assumes you are familiar with other command prompt programs like CD and DIR.

    It took me some time to figure out and though this forum has been helpful I did figure it out by myself through trial and error.

    With this program ChgWpn you can take basically any weapon that you are not holding and swap it with one from a list of weapons I have provided. All the weapons you can choose from are Golden and as good as I could find. Yes I did DNA splicing to "find" some of these but all have been tested and work well in game.



    http://www.mediafire.com/?d5e5de2u6u2axiv

    When you enter the command ChgWpn you should see following:

    C:\Download\Game\DeadIsland\GS>ChgWpn
    This routine will take an unencrypted Dead Island Game Save file
    and display the replaceable weapons it contains
    after you have chosen which weapon you wish to replace it will
    provide you with a replacement list of available weapons.
    Useage for ChgWpn Version 1.03:

    >ChgWpn filename

    If you enter your GS then you should see something like this:

    Try it out and by the way the list of weapons is by no means all possible Golden weapons however you may find one that interests you. The weapon you select will have its required level matched to GS current level.

    Enter the line number of weapon you wish to replace> 6
    Replacing weapon 6 with one of the following:

    I found a small issue here.

    Everything works fine up until I tried to load the file on my console. The loading screen pops up, then freezes right before the game is supposed to load. I'm guessing it's some kind of issue with the newly added weapons, since I haven't had an issue with this with the prior version.

    jiytee can you send me this GS that caused the failure? With it I can figure out what went wrong and fix it! Thanks for letting me know.

    I am guessing you tried swapping for a Firearm_leg_DefenderOfTheMotherland.
    Sorry about that. I had set my MAX_STR too short and have fixed ChgWpn. Goto the top post and download ver 1.03 from there. Thanks for bringing the issue to my attention!

    Are you just double-clicking the file? You need to open it with Command Prompt.
