"Hacking" from the outside

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else tried hacking the game from outside the game yet? I can confirm that most (if not all) lua scripts can be decompiled with luadec51 and viewed/edited.

Warning though: This has let me find a ton of "secrets" early.

However, it's also let me skip chunks of the game (going through the whole thing just to get the cable is very frustrating, so I have the wizard in the cave give it to me when he gives me the save and load.)

Ive made the broken chunks in the castle entrance room TP me to various rooms.

Any idea what the HiddenJournal.txt needs to decrypt it?

So far I've tried using the decryption table, but it doesn't seem to work. If it's possible with what we have at all, then I know it's AES since that's the only encryption method that is specifically included. Out of the game, I know the file is in some binary format. This makes it hard to test without coding something manually.

I also havent managed to access the credit room... the file doesnt exist in my install and i havent found it in a sub folder... any ideas?

[EDIT] Seems to be something in the AfHack\Data\Scripts\Rooms\Dungeon\KeyRoom.lua... that should give us a hint as to the decryption algorythm/key
