Re: Halo 3 Binary Reader

try
Code:
Imports System.IO

Dim br as new BinaryReader
br.basestream.position = "hex line"
textbox1.text = br.read
br.basestream.position += 1
tried to remember that off the top of my head. Goldbl4d3 helped me with that
hope this helps if it did... its just a click away ;D

It's not the encoding your using, your still having a problem with offsets.

0000E170 - Description
0000E040 - Title
0000E150 - Title
0000E0E0 - Author
0000E1F0 - Author
