    You can try notepad, but I doubt it does what you want it to do. What do you expect when opening a dll?
    hth
    -nv

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Umm...notepad? a hex editor? rundll32? What exactly are you trying to do with it?
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    I have a game I want to edit, Sonic BGE anniversary, and the most important of its files are in .dll (the other ones are .xml, so I opened them already). What do I need to use?

    A dll is executable code, not data (some exceptions). You cannot "open" and "edit" them. What do you expect to find in the dll you try to open?
    hth
    -nv

    Well given the effort it took just to get you to compile something the last time around, my guess is you need to learn a lot more before trying.

    Plus we're not really into the whole "hack a game so I can cheat" thing, so you're just going to get ignored by a whole section of the forum.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    At first, I can fully create a program. My problem was with CodeBlocks. I have already made some .xml files, edit some others, and learned a lot about them, because I opened them with Notepad, which didn't have the problem CodeBlocks did.

    Second, I do not try to hack or anything. In case you don't know, Sonic BGE Anniversary is an uncomplete and fully free for other programmers to edit and even create levels. It's just I want something more: to introduce a second character in the game. No cheat, sunshine.

    And third, I remember you from the previous thread I did. You only sarcasmed me, or were said obvious stuff I should be retarded for not doing myself in the first case. So, if you don't want to help me, stop trolling me and get the .......... out of my thread NOW!

    > "fully free for other programmers to edit and even create levels"
    Then why don't you try something with the source code, instead of trying to modify dlls ?

    >"or were said obvious stuff I should be retarded for not doing myself in the first case."
    You got the point?... wonderful!

    >"my thread"
    In case you didn't notice, this is not your thread... as long as others can post into it.

    You mean, a game "fully free for other programmers to edit" does not provide its source ? ...
    Then HTH is it fully free?
    Perhaps, you need to look for better projects...
    You'll find a load of them at sourceforge.net

    Bin-hacking is tons of fun, but it's like an obscure and deadly martial art, we don't teach it to just any monkey who walks into the dojo
    rags_to_riches and Elkvis like this.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    In case I didn't make it clear, I mean the source code.
