For once, i reversed something by myself! LOL bout time aye?
Anyway, i was never going to release this method because it shouldn't be easily patchable, just detectable...
Open Notepad, paste the following in
Save as "Start.bat" and put in your CA Folder, now Launch CA from that batch file... Alternately, you can setup a shortcut for Engine as well, and launch it through properties from the short cut
Engine.exe -windowtitle CombatArms -rez Game -authip 126.96.36.199 -authport 10001 -pcroom 0 -Ver VER_US_1302.08 +ScreenGlowEnable 1 +ScreenGlowTextureSize 256 +ScreenGlowUVScale 0.001 +ScreenGlowFilterSize 34 +ScreenGlowShowTexture 1 +ModelFullbrite 1 +ModelDebug_DrawVertexNormals 1 +ModelAdd 0 255 0 -UserId
if you use this, you can get my effects ihave shown, some of these are rez chams
you get results like the following...and yes i know the CA VERSION is different... i can change the version to VER_US_BOXXI and the game will launch
Doom Graphix mod
this is how SleeperCell aka Ura uses this on his game
explaining: Basically the game engine runs solely on command line arguments and that got me thinking "PTC's are cmd line based, why wouldn't they work on launch?" and i tried it and it worked. This is how i launch my personal FPS Game TPS... except i have a text box for the IP and Port in a C# launcher.
NOT ALL PTC's WORK. Nexon "Turns off" some of them at the loading screen before a game... Windowed mode only works until you hit the loading screen for example... BUT you can change your games screen resolution with this and it will stay that size! Uber Wide screen CA anybody? You can also modify your FOV using this and see much more around you in game than you normally would. its very helpful
You can ALSO use this to load REZ CHAMS, but most people in this section will just d3d that shit xD
I would give credits to the original finder of the cmd line params, but honestly CA will launch even if you just do
granted that version is super minimal, and doesn't work very well, because the IP and Port need to link to a specific game server, not the master server, so if you got a DEDICATED server (hint hint to your private server wanting people) running on CA, that would be the cmd for you
Engine.exe -cmdfile launchcmds.txt +join 188.8.131.52:10001
