after reading that somebody got drgn's hack to work after the HS update i figured i try it with xfire.. they work.. played 3 games with no d/c.. before this update i couldnt get them to run without the bypass now they wont run with it.. weird but whatever.. for those that dont have these search the forums for a thread titled "xfire walls" and follow r3k0n's instructions
1st: we need to clean out your failed attempts log! in your CA folder (C:\Nexon\Combat Arms) you must DELETE the files- CAV.exe, EndingBanner.exe, rwdata2.bin, and all Debug(blah blah blah).txt files. NEXT is INSIDE your HShield folder (C:\Nexon\Combat Arms\HShield) there are two .v3d files that also need DELETED they are v3warpds.v3d and v3warpns.v3d.
STEP 1 IS NOT ONLY A DAILY THING BUT BEFORE EVERY TIME YOU RUN CA
2nd: you must create a NEW FOLDER inside your CA folder (C:\Nexon\Combat Arms\New Folder)
3rd: YOU MUST RUN CA IN COMPATIBILITY MODE: right click on your Combat Arms icon that is on your desktop>Properties>Compatibility tab. Check the box that states "Run this program in compatibility mode for" WINDOWS 95!
4th: you need a hacks folder.. preferably on your desktop simply titled CA.. to put these files in.
5th: extract the XFIRE hack to the new folder created in your CA folder (C:\Nexon\Combat Arms\New Folder)
6th: right click on the file "d3dx9_33.exe" that you have just extracted to your new folder in your CA folder (NOT THE .dll FILE) and go to option "Send To" then "Desktop (Create Shortcut)" and select it
7th: open d3dx9_33.exe from your desktop
8th: open CA and GAME START!
9th: once in game AT THE LOGIN SCREEN BEFORE YOU LOGIN press the Insert key on your keyboard to open the menu.. use up and down arrow keys to select what hacks to use, left and right arrow keys to enable or disable the hacks.. COLOR IS AT THE TOP OF THE LIST AND MUST NOT BE ACTIVATED! YOUR GAME WILL CLOSE OUT AND YOU'LL HAVE TO REDO STEP 1! FOR BEST RESPONSE AND LEAST LAG, LIMIT YOURSELF TO: Full Bright, No Fog, and Wall Hack. PRESS THE INSERT KEY ONCE AGAIN TO CLOSE THE MENU BEFORE LOGGING IN!
