Find score variable for player 2: 50$ reward!!

Postby post_exodus » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:31 pm

Hey again,
I'm desperate to get my mod done for a friends birthday... as some of you may have read, I'm stuck on finding a way to get or compare the score of the second player in horse mode (I'm modding the PS2-Version, so there is a Horse mode on the same console).
I decided to set up a bounty:

I need a way to either GET the value of the current score of skater 2 at a specific time in a qb-script (e.g. skater_two_score = ??????)
or compare it to something (like "SkaterCurrentScorePotGreaterThan" but this only works for the first player)


The first one who tells me a working solution will receive 50$ via paypal

I'm not kidding, I really need that mod :D

Hey guys,
I just managed to do what I want to do. :cool: While I still couldn't find a way to read the score of player 2 in scripts, I used CheatEngine and an assembly script to read and manipulate the corresponding registers. Even though I still have a question:

Now that I know the addresses of the score, I wonder if there is a way to change or read values at these addresses in qb scripts.

something like
$myvar$ = [0x1234ABCD]

and yes, the addresses that I found are static. They do not change after restarting the game or the computer.

There is no way to do that through scripting alone. You would need a proxy dll and hook various functions. You could then do whatever you want at that point.

Any tutorial recommendations on that topic? :)

These helped me back in the days they can get you started for sure.
There is a lot of information about the subject on the internet.
Maybe these sites will help or at least get you on the right track.
