    While this doesn't have to do with halo 3 modding, exactly, I thought this was the best place to ask this question:


    I have a save game file that I extracted from a CON, and I don't know how to get it back into the con. It's not a sandbox, so those tools wouldn't work... What exactly would I use/have to do in order to get this file back into the CON so I can resign it? Thanks.

    I dont think there are tools available ATM to do that, but you can do it by hand using a hex editor

    just find the offsets it begins and ends, and write your bytes back into the con :tongue:

    That's not going to work with all packages.

    I dont think hes increasing sizes, just modding the file or restoring it to it's container. But yes, if it gets bigger things become more difficult :tongue:

    Well, the point of this sort of mod(for fallout 3) was to see if I could change little bits of information. I found it inside of the save game file(no extension) inside of the CON, titled as the save would be.

    So far, I have figured out(Thanks to all of you :smile: ) how to manually inject it back into the CON, but my small modification didn't work. (First the title you get, then the name.. neither worked but didn't corrupt the file.) I did get a corrupt when I modified the name of the CON though... Anyways, I've gotten my answer. Thanks for the help.
