    Hello!

    I've been looking to replace some files in a game and need to figure out what file is loaded when reaching a certain point. How would I accomplish this?

    Thanks!

    Gambia, The
    Look at caffiine's server output. It prints the file path when a file is loaded from the filesystem.

    EDIT: Oh, you're playing backups. Well, like cyan said, its more or less the same thing, just enter your ip while installing loadiine.

    I guess you are using loadiine (or you wouldn't need to edit game's files)?
    when installing loadiine, set your computer's IP and press X.
    launch the server on your computer
    launch the game, and watch the accessed files while playing.

    edit:
    or like he said, do the same with cafiine if you want replacing files from retail games.
    sorry to think about loadiine first. that's the "current thing".

    It's not loadiine. I own the game. I'm looking to see if I can put a leftover mode back in a game by replacing a used mode with it.

    most files on the disc will be loaded 'at some point' I have herd of people renaming cretin files like levels, BGM, even characters so they load instead of the intended file. one easy way to figure out what/when a file is loaded, is to rename a file and see where the game throws an error.
