    you can convert binary (hexedit) format to extinfo.dat format. [​IMG]
    it will solve almost anti-piracy game.

    infolib.dat can only solve the patch speed, or part of the patch error.
    savlib.dat can only solve the save size.

    Binary =/= Hex
    Binary = Base 2 counting system, 0 and 1.
    Hex = Base 16 counting system, 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F

    But anyway... You still need to get the information needed for the extinfo.dat file, and I'm pretty sure that the average person isn't going to know how to get it... and I have to assume that most of those who CAN get the info probably aren't willing to put the time and effort into maintaining a public extinfo.dat.

    Error code=-4 problem has somethink to do with infolib.dat or extinfo.dat for TTDS or ysmenu for R4

    Take the game world of zoo (E)

    If i use the infolib.dat from http://sites.google.com/site/weeklyinfolib/ , the game will get a error code =-4

    If i use the infolib.dat from dsm0125.zip from http://gamewiki.jp/uploader/dsma/ the game runs no problem

    But infolib.dat uses the extinfo.dat file

    So it possable that we have to wait for a working extinfo.dat of infolib.dat

    This is -=ALL=- hex.
    There is NO binary what-so-ever.

    Binary looks like 0100010010010010
    Hex looks like 01 FF 37 A0 9D F1 C4

    I see many thanks twiztidsinz

    Hope he could upddate it soon for games like bookworm and bejuled twist, with the lifolib.dat speed issue to fix errorcode =-4 problem

    However the Jap infolib.dat dose fix error code =-4 problem with world of zoo (E) , unlike the new form http://sites.google.com/site/weeklyinfolib/ 19th jan

    That's the problem. There are many people who would be willing to add fixes to the extinfo.dat but it seems there is no western person who knows how to do this.

    This actually looks promising. With this I can at least see the Game ID's and the hex changes made. Of course we still need to find someone with the skill to crack the AP in games before we can make any additions to the extinfo.

    Savlib editing is already possible and extremely easy with this tool - http://filetrip.net/f9814-DSTTYSMenu-Savli...itor-0-0-1.html

    If you bubble click on an ID and click once in the popup box F5 key also has some functions

    Jump
    Fined
    Replace

    I think [][] (O)... is open

    locate your infolib.dat , extinfo.dat , or savlib.dat and run , select same type to open list of it

    Bubble click on ID to open info

    Indeed, but you have to know what you're looking for and what you're replacing it with. This tool itself does not crack games.

    Yes you can and also change codes with it

    It would be a whole lot easer if it was in english though...
