Phoenix Dynasty Data files modifying
All data files in Phoenix Dynasty are strongly ciphered… with “strong” XOR algorithm, where each byte just xor’ed with key 0x78 (120 in dec). So, for decryption we must implement reverse xor operation with same key.
You can use small application XORed to perform decryptionCode:while [File] position < [File] length do begin Read [File] byte [File] byte XOR 0x78 save byte to new file end;
Set “xor” value to 120 and drag all files to the main form. Decrypted files will be created in the same folder with original files. Now you can modify any data and try to find some values that aren’t server-side.
Q: How to view and change something in data files
A: All files in data folder are simple csv. Open OpenOffice Calc (or other application like Excel)
Choose “tabulation” delimiter and Win-1251 codepage. Then without problems you can view all tabled data.
After changes, use XOR 120 again and replace original file with modified.
