    How to mod GoW 2: Screen shots and Campaign
    Tutorial by: II WaStEdPrO II

    Required: -Xplorer 360 or Xport 360
    -XSATA or XPORT
    -Modio - GameTuts from youtube!

    You can download Modio:
    [Click here to view the link]

    NO RESIGNER NEEDED-Built into Modio
    Screen shot Modding

    Ok, lets begin!

    1.) First off, you must have a screenshot saved onto your profile from GoW.
    2.) You are going to have to open your HDD in Xplorer 360 (or Xport but in this tut. its Xplorer!) So go ahead and do that. Now you go to Partrition 3 > Content > {Your Profile} > 4D53082D > Click on the folder that comes up. Now pick your "Shot"
    3.) Extract your screen shot to anywhere you would like, but remember where!
    4.) Open Modio!
    5.) Click "Mod Tools" then Gears of War 2
    6.) Now whent this screen opens it will be on the CAMPAIGN MODDING section, switch it to screen shot by choosing the second tab.
    7.) Now open you screen shot from where ever you saved it.
    8.) You should see your screanshot on the right. If you do not, something probably went wrong...obviously.
    9.) Now hit the "Extract" button and save it anywhere.
    10.) The file (.PNG) should go to where you saved it.
    11.) Open it up in an image editor (I used ms paint)
    12.) Edit
    13.) When you are done click "Save" NOT "Save as"
    14.) Now when that is done you go back to Modio and click "Inject"
    15.) Find your file (.PNG) and inject it.
    16.) Now you can change your score...have fun
    17.) All you need to do is replace the modded file with the old one. You do this by going back to Xplorer 360. Find your old file. Now right click anywhere on the right screan and click "Inject File"
    18.) Auto Rehash/Resign--HAVE FUN :thumbup:
    Campaign Modding

    1.) You need to have a checkpoint in the campaign section of GoW.
    2.) Open up your HDD in Xplorer 360.
    3.) Partrition 3 > Content > {YOUR PROFILE} > 4D53082D > The folder there and STOP. :biggrin:
    4.) Now find your checkpoint. It shouldnt be hard to find if you have a checkpoint :wink:
    It will be named "Gears2Checkpoint"
    5.) Now extract this to anywhere you would like. Remember it though!
    6.) Open Moddio.
    7.) Click "Mod Tools" then "Gears of War 2"
    8.) Now go to "Open Checkpoint"
    9.) Check off your modifications :wink:
    10.) When you are dont hit "Mod File" - This will automatically Rehash/Resign your file!
    11.) Inject the file back into Xplorer 360, replacing the old one.
    12.) Have fun modding.


    Thanks for reading my FIRST tutorial!

    Re: How to mod GoW 2: Screanshots and Campaign!

    Yeah, modio sucks. It can't even mod other weapons beside the Lancer, it's pretty fail.
    I just went in hex and gave my self inf grenades, lancer, shotgun, and swapped my pistol with a sniper wit inf ammo. And gave the same to dom and carmine.

    If you want to change something to inf ammo BESIDES the lancer, search in hex for CogMarcus or CogDom (for marcus and dom respectively), scroll a little down until you see the name of the weapon, and three bytes after the last letter of the weapon name change it to FFFFFFFF eg assaultrifle........ you would go to the third dot (e... <-) and change the next 4 bytes to ff.


    You did a nice job with a tut for the program though, Wasted:biggrin:

    Well modio is the only thing other than HeX. And some people find using programs like Modio is better and easier. It would be nice if it did more things but what ever, im happy with what was released :thumbup:

    In HxD, instead of using just CogMarcus or CogDom do Cog_Marcus.. With the underscore.

    Re: How to mod GoW 2: Screanshots and Campaign!

    GearGame.GearPawn_COGMarcus..COG_Marcus

    There's no need, COGMarcus is right next to COG_Marcus, so either works.
    But since there are way more COG_Marcus in the file than COGMarcus, it's easier to do the second. (same goes for COGDom)
    The underscore actually makes it give more results, which is bad, as there are only 2 at most that are the correct ones.

    I hope he means mine, as your tutorial for using modio I found easy to understand. Mine was just if anyone feels like doing more than it offers, but most definitely confusing to someone who hasn't hexed the checkpoint before.
    (you can keep the pretty colors :tongue:)

    Yeah...but thats never going to be able to change

    Ok...if you want a HeX tutorial...i would try to use the search button.

    Probably...but since it is just campaign anyway...just play offline.
