Getting Zip Passwords and extracting cfs for Continent of the Ninth (C9)
Here is a simple to follow guide that involves 0 knowledge of debugging to follow.
You will need the following tools.
1. HXD or a hex editor that can open a program in ram.
2.Cheat Engine or another program that can pause a process.
3.The game C9
Launch the game update program.
Launch Cheat Engine
Setup the hot key to pause the process in cheat engine
Set the hot key to your choice (I choose 7)
Click on the Process list button (magnifying glass) in cheat engine until you see our process (Exlauncher.exe)
do not attach to the process yet.
This is what it will look like if you attach to the process in cheat engine and pause it.
Log into C9 and after you are logged in attach to the process and pause it hitting the key you assigned to that and it should look like this.
Take note of the file name and the progress bar when you see the file finish and the text change pause the process so it looks close to this.
Now that you have the process paused while it is extracting a file open up HXD and choose open ram
in the process list you will notice a new process that was created while the game was extracting the files(Launcher.exe)
so this must be what handles extracting the files so lets attach to it.
Now lets do a search for our file
We end up here take a look and see if anything looks odd.
Take note of the long string that looks like it could be a password and it keeps repeats 2x in this view
if I scroll a little further down it is still repeating this seems like we have our number
Try our password on the zip file and it works.
I will post some more advanced tutorials if there is a demand for it let me know
