Hooked And Enhanced mod

Hooked And Enhanced mod

Update: This mod probably never will be release,
as devs have all mods files and source, some of features potential could be implemented in game itself.


Firs of all DOWNLOAD IS NOT AVAILABLE, till someone allow me, because technically its a hack.

This mod adds some random features by hooking directx,
basically by replacing D3D8.dll and D3DX81AB.dll files.
I mostly was developing it for my personal needs to add some fresh to soldat.


Features:


*Antialiasing
..that works!

*Polygon outline
Its nice, smooth and fast.

*More useful cursor
That displays ammo and resizes correctly,
showing health and that "bullet ready" bar is supposed to be added later

..and the player arrow above head changes to X when dead

*Particle explosions
Always creates dynamic explosion, so never get bored watching them.

*Explosion blast decals
For every explosion it adds blast mark on near polygons,
its possible to set their life time to ..almost infinity, so at end of round you see black marks everywhere.

*Entire screen hue shift
It turns entire screen in changing rainbow!
Stimulates your eyes very well, and because experienced players don't need to look at player colors anyway.


All features are turntable on separably , and some configurable.

explosions and blast decals
cursor , emptying mp5
hue shift

black outline whit half transparency
orange outline whit half transparency, and red X above head when dead


On a side note, i saw how soldat render things and well,
looks like Soldat doesn't use matrices at all , for any vertex transformations, so every vertex is iterated every frame and transformed by cpu,
and some render target and vertex buffer mess,
no wonder it has performance problems...

Blast decals, particle explosions and binking dots of cursor are great. The rest of these things are completely unnecessary to me.
Ammo amount is like a cheat, makes game much easier because you haven't to check ammo bar in another place of screen. However, design is quite interesting.

I thought about adding an orange glow (like dynamic png fx) during explosions.

Welcome to the forums!

These improvements look really nice.

I am ok with you posting this mod under the condition that we get the code beforehand to see if it's clean and to make the interesting features part of the game itself in the long run.

As for the rendering code: It is not optimal and there is still enough stuff to be improved.

Hello Shoozza,

Well and that was expected you want to look at source, nobody wants execute binarys form least  know persons,
its totally ok form me release all projects files. If you want something from this to implement in the game that's great, then you probably want ask me some questions about code..?

Edit:
And Shoozza  you or someone form dev team, can PM email so i can actually send source, whit Visual Studio 2008,
and directx 8 sdk, it should compile whit ease.

Yeah I'll ask you some questions when I see it. It doesn't really matter which language it is written in. I guess it's C/C++ as there are frameworks to hook directx with it.
It would be better if you pm a link to the sourcecode as it might be easy for people to adapt your mod and use it for other not so nice stuff.

Some low end netbook on which i cant play soldat anyway, i get to 15 fps in online play.
If you see constantly 6 explosions, fps drops from 100 to 50. Polygon outline isn't affected by map complexity,
and i get some 10 fps drop.


I thought about adding an orange glow (like dynamic png fx) during explosions.

You mean like explosions would emitting light on background?

I still need to finish reviewing the mod.

The current downside with using the mod is that you need to replace files in your windows directory before you run it (and undo it after you played).
On XP some popup will tell you that system files have been replaced and if you want to recover them (Please insert XP CD etc).

Seems like my anti inject code i added to Soldat prevents easy use of the mod :P

I also noticed that blast decals kill performance for me (before 50fps after enabling the blast decays it's down to 5fps).

I'll let you know when I finished reviewing it.

This looks very promising and with some GUI tweaking to allow an easy enable/disable, I'm sure it will enhance everyone's experience.

It's not a hack, you did there a masterpiece of work!

Those blast decalls for example need to be added! and as Kogai says, with enable disable option the most stuff could be added.  :o

OMAGAAAD! That's really awesome. Looks so much better and could help increasing the eyecandy-factor of Soldat to attract new folks to the game.

@aint`bazz: Pls don't use ImageShack for uploading screenshots. It just sucks ass to have to check out the source of the page every time I want to see the direct link of the image. Better just add them as an attachment.
Edit: Hmpf...seems like the attachement feature recompresses images which makes the fonts for example look quite ugly.

For reasons as:
Shoozza have less and less time now.
Mod code was very uncommented and unstructured.
Updated mod will have to be approved.

..for release will have to wait.. more.


And btw mod have taunt display too (when you hold ALT key).. because after years of playing
 i still only manage to remeber like 3 taunts?

this helps now:

aint'bazz, you're like adding all the features a soldier could just dream of to have in soldat.... geez man, whats the problem with you not being inside the dev team yet?

Does anyone fear this guy could make Soldat too awesome or what is the reason lol, since i play Soldat i've never seen such IMPROVING changes someone just added. Even the 1.6.3 update looks like nothing to me now compared to what you did/do here.

Wow. This mod was already pretty impressive, but implementation of proper high-res support is just incredible. Shoozza, I hope you'll consider making him part of the dev team, so he can work on implementing these features natively instead of you having to do this yourself.

He never asked to be part of devteam, or I missed that post.
Why would I doubt his joining? Because believe me or not, it might be actually a lot easier to him to code it as hack instead of mess directly with source code...

I guess Shoozza didnt even finished  auto updater or what is his top soldat thigs now,
no wonder nothing new about code review either.

About me as dev..
..yeah, i could .. isn't like i really want(i have this feeling....), but i could do some valuable work... but i dont think that will happen so simply, only because i created mod.


... was a notorious troublemaker ...
hmm... hmm?

If i where on dev team, my first thoughts would be:
How easily you can convert soldat to c++ and dx9..


Yeah i continued my mod, and i finished idea behind that cursor override and ammo bars.

Now it has the "meters", customizable gui elements thing.

They can "measure" things as health, ammo, jet, fire, bars , player, cursor pos, player velocity,...
..represent their values as size, position, color, progress mask(whatever it sounds like),
and that all is definable in config file, so you can make whatever hud you like, for example:
speedometer, fullscreen blood splash, some blinking alerts when hp, ammo low,
hell you could even replace all soldat hud.

I haven't finished "meters" completely though.
You sure could create something more cool that you see in pics,
i haven't spent too much time creating hud.

almost 4 months and no download
I did read some code but it requires me to invest more time.
Maybe there is a way for aint`bazz to make things easier for me.

I guess Shoozza didnt even finished  auto updater or what is his top soldat thigs now,
no wonder nothing new about code review either.
Yeah :/

About me as dev..
..yeah, i could .. isn't like i really want(i have this feeling....), but i could do some valuable work... but i dont think that will happen so simply, only because i created mod.

If i where on dev team, my first thoughts would be:
How easily you can convert soldat to c++ and dx9..
I don't think we will port soldat to c++ and dx9.
But delphi/object pascal is just another language so learning it shouldn't be a problem.

Will the Second Screen efect (the red screen efect) be included in slodat its awesome?
Why do you want to have this?

I didn't test it (dont have the latest version of the mod) but I can imagine that it would be annoying because you get hit all the time in soldat.
I'm not sure why hit sounds aren't enough.

Sorry but after a few versions in the past where features got higher value than bugfixes I don't feel comfortable adding everything.

If you want it to be added to soldat,
the idea should be expanding custom interface modding capabilities,
no one should be forced to watch some red screen of death.

In this mod (in that screen),its just generic config define that sets when health gets somewhere below 10%
specific full screen texture starts to fade in.

Ok I'll update this post just to make sure everyone knows why this is still not available for download.

The method this "mod" uses to get into Soldat could leave people with a broken system (other games or applications could crash after it was installed).
I don't want people to blame me for allowing that to happen and would be happy if aint`bazz could find a cleaner solution.

The reason why none of this is got into Soldat yet is because the sourcecode is not easy to read.
A general code cleanup would drastically reduce the time we devs need to review it.
It would be nice if there was some documentation or comments in the code.

I understand that this code works but it's not fun to extract the stuff from there.

@Shoozza
I have feeling that you never received my last PM, where i was talking about that installation was made easier (e.g only replace D3DX81abD.dll in soldat dir), so nothing is globally affected and if you where interested in specific fix i could extract them for you, because for someone else it could actually get rather hard.

Well anyway..at this point im not very motivate to do anything related to this mod and don't even care to release it.

I can send you last version if you want, you dont have it because i never got response.

Hmm, i just looked in my inbox and found that PM, I must have forgotten about it.
There was no source code attached though.

Sure, you can send me the latest version if you want.

Thanks for your effort and time!
Even if you don't find the time/motivation to clean up and document the code I'm sure the features of this mod will be remembered just like people still remember mine ;) (which still isn't part of Soldat - so meh)

If it would be 15 minutes it would be already out there.
I asked you to do some code cleanup and documentation to make things easier for the people reviewing your code, sadly that change didn't happen as you thought it wasn't worth it.
That's why I wrote in my last post that I will remember the features you added and we will implement them on our own if we have the time (we have to port them to Delphi in order to use them).

The other issue with your solution is the way you inject your dll, which is not save.
I'm concerned that people might break their PC's by using your mod.

The features you implemented are really teasing people to get this mod and I can understand you are angry that nothing happened.
I myself had to wait 3 years or so to get into the devteam so I understand your frustration.

Falcon if you want the code I can mail it to you. I would like to make sure we all have the same code.
Btw last time I asked nobody was interested in reviewing the code (it was some time ago already though).


It's not like I didn't try aint`bazz, I'm sorry if I was unclear about things.

Version that modified vtable insted of copy dll, its perfectly safe.

There is more update version that you have at the moment, i wont recommend sent that you have to Falcon.

Well anyway..at this point im not very motivate to do anything related to this mod and don't even care to release it.

This still actually apply and im not that angry.

That was back then in that PM you missed and this:

... installation was made easier (e.g only replace D3DX81abD.dll in soldat dir), so nothing is globally affected...
i thought i was clear about that.

This new versions basically fixed only stability.

Shoozza, please take a look at it and consider adding it in next version of Soldat. Graphic is the weakest side of Soldat. This could help a lot. We need new players. Soldat has a great potential to be played by many players.

I don't think I want to officially distribute this with the game.

The thing is that we will rewrite a lot of stuff in Soldat with 1.7 which will hopefully allow for integration of some of the features of this mod but adding it and then removing it will not help.
I didn't even think about adding my own mod to Soldat even though people loved that one as well.

Okay, in other words: Soldat needs many graphical modifications and reworks to be done in order to be successful at this times. Then, developers should try Greenlight at Steam and hope it will work.
I know these two sentences are cruel and it's not easy to be done. But if we all want to play Soldat in these days, we need at least new interface, new graphics and new effects.
