    You can use a hex editor

    A more specific question would be "how to decompile NTR .plg".
    But you cant... not really, you can debug it and monitor what it changes, but why when just writing a new one is easier.
    Browse Fort42 for codes and just use those, or make your own codes using NTRs debugger feature.

    this might work :v

    1) open the sd

    2) click the plugin

    3) windows will tell you to either browse online to open it or to open it with a preinstalled microsoft software. Click the second option

    4) click wordpad/notepad whatever.

    Now edit the code from the pad.

    idk if this works dont hold me responsible

    lol, no, the .plg file is compiled C, it would look like this:

    You won't be able to because it's compiled C code.

    You can't view the code within it in plain text, and definitely cannot view the actual code addreses back into plaintext.

    If you use something like ollydbg or Aida64 to reverse engineer it, you'll just get assembler back - not the actual code itself (or memory addresses which is what you're wanting to find).

    The only way to view the codes in the file is if you manage to find the source directly, not the compiled plugin file.

    If you use wordpad to edit the file - you'll corrupt it. If you use a Hex editor - you'll only be able to view strings, not the codes themselves.

    Well I didn't know why you were trying to convert them to text, but if you were just looking for what codes the plugin HAS, you can like I said, view them with a hex editor.

    The image you've given is the strings in Hex (he wants the codes themselves)...

    Those aren't the codes/hex bytes he's looking for as they'll be bundled up amongst other code (which means he'll have to reverse engineer it to get the actual list of working codes (as they'll overlap each other if viewed in a hex editor)) and reverse engineering is NOT easy.

    If he manages to figure out where the code starts and ends (nigh impossible unless he knows the first and last address of a code), they'll also be different (due to the compilation process) if the codes were stored in variables as the variable's contents will NOT be in plaintext (or a 1 - 1 representation) in the hex editor either (as per C's design).

    OP: Your best bet is to still try and find an open source copy of it if possible. Unless you're a skilled reverse engineer, with access to OllyDbg and Aid64 - all you'll be able to do is read strings, not the actual codes which do the work.

    That's what I thought he wanted, a list of codes available, not the actual codes. Just trying to help.

    I apologize for my tone, but I've seen all too many times, people (who have little to no idea how these things work) go down the wrong path and end up wasting time on something which is impossible.

    He mentioned in his second post that he wants the codes themselves, not the strings but without any of my last statement - that's impossible (and to be honest, not even worth it in the end. Too much work for something you could probably make a thread asking for them directly instead).

    Unfortunately it is the biggest weakness of the plugin system compared to other kinds of cheat systems, being unable to edit them on the fly (or make easy porting of codes by region) without the source among other things.
