If you have any questions you want me to answer I will try my best in doing that. Please do this not only for yourself but the rest that have the same question.[/b]
- Red = Banning Issues
- Blue = Tool Info, or understanding the tools
- Green = Mod Tool Help
Can I get banned from doing any GPD modding?
[b]Depends on the developers. If they have a great security that can detect/locate any modifications within the gpd then you will most likely get banned. Think of it like a wasp nest. When they find out that you are near there hive they will attack without any consideration.
Now if your modding any other game like old games with less security than you won’t get banned. Unless a Xbox/PS user haves evidence/proof of you modding the game. Once they have this evidence they most likely try to report it to the developers twitter/youtube/site/forums.
Over the years many developers have increased on there security. Old games don’t have a good security as they do now.[/b]
Will I get banned for modding my achievements?
[b]If your modding your achievements remember that you still have the possibility of getting banned. Remember if your modding the achievement don’t go all happy feet and start modifying a lot of score. This is just adding injury to insult; pretty much saying your giving your self a pretty good chance of getting banned.
You may be able to mod a lot of score, and still go online. This does not mean you are home free. Microsoft will catch you for it. Sorry to say that but its true[/b]
NOTE: This is the same for Award modding. Don’t go crazy; just mod a few things.
Will I get banned for using the Horizon Avatar tool?
[b]They’re several exceptions to getting banned. Some say you get banned for having it, others say its impossible/less chance of getting banned.
Both of these answers are correct/false. Correct that you can get banned for modifying your avatars color. The reason why some get banned is they have it as a picture(Xbox Live Avatar), or they are just feel very high and mighty about it and tell everyone on Xbox Live. Personally its not something to brag about. Just don’t have it as your picture, or brag about it to everyone on Xbox Live.[/b]
Gamesave modding can get me banned?
This is an uncommon thing to happen to someone. You can be assured that modding a gamesave will not get you banned. Unless your recording a video about it, and happen to have your you tube name the same as your gamer tag, or your gamertag is popped up right there for everyone to see. What I recommend you do is if your recording a video of a gamesave mod is to not show your gamertag, or to not have your youtube name the same as your gamertag.
Profile Editor/Crown Editor is a ban issue?
I wouldn’t worry about getting banned for editing your Crown. The only Idea I have is if Microsoft steps up on there security and can detect the years being modded. That would be the only way of you getting banned. Other then that don’t worry everything will be alright.
Halo Reach can result in a ban?
[b]It depends on how much you add. If you add over 1000, or 2000 you might have the chance of it getting detected. I recommend you stick at 1000 just to be safe; if you feel safe enough to step up to 2000 go right ahead.
Now if your using the Halo Reach editor offline for good curiosity of ranks,armor,etc. Go right ahead. I highly suggest you making a back up, or click the backup button on the right bottom hand corner; after that just mod the orginal, or back up. When your done just go back to your computer and replace your profile with the back up, and connect to xbox live.[/b]
What is the Account Editor?
[b]The account editor is for people that are more proficient at modding and know exactly what they are doing. This is not recommend if you are new to modding, or have no clue what the Account Editor does.
When you first open up account tool you notice that it shows several things.[/b] You will first see your [b]gamertag. This lets you edit your gamertag; but you will not be able to actually change it for free. You can use this for modding your gamertag for Call of Duty 4,5,MW2, Halo,etc. (Hint: Buttons in your gamertag?)
The[/b] [b]second thing you will see is a drop down box that shows Xbox Live,PNET,Other. This clarifies if you are Xbox Live, ParterNet, or other. This is used for Dev kits. Dev kits have partnernet. Don’t use this if you have a normal xbox.
The third thing you will see is[/b] flags. The flags are what you have. If its say Xbox Live;Leave it. Unless you have a developer kit, or if your profile is in recovering status. Password protected is where you can change the buttons password to your account. A great example would be if your brother has an account that is password protected then this can be used to change it. XUID is something to never change. If you love xbox live then don’t change it. This is your live Id; without it you can’t go online. Domain, andRealm is something you don’t want to mess with.
What exactly is the Title ID Searcher?
Lets say you wanted to know the exact number/letter of the gpd for your game. You would use this to find that number/letter, and locate it within your profile.
The Device Explorer - Whats so special?
[b]Before the update, you could only imagine the speed. Now the update has been finally released. You can now experience the phenomenal speed. When you first open up the Horizon application, your device should automatically be detected and should pop up with all of your saves/profiles/other.
The device explorer has plenty attributes. The speed is not just the only thing that makes the quality of the device explorer amazing. Its the unique design of the explorer. Just by opening it, you can see the difference between a normal explorer and Horizons Device Explorer.
The Horizon developers have given you a user friendly explorer that allows you to quickly get to your files, extract the files with its lightening speed and they even give you multiple different ways to inject/extract a file.[/b]
How do I use the Star Wars Forced Unleashed 2 Tool?
[b]Last time I was on the forum a member of this site didn’t really understand how to modify the game. He didn’t get the values.
There are two different values in the star wars editor; the first one would be a true, or false statement but in numbers.
Of course 1 being true, and 0 being false.
These will signify if it is true, or false.
The second set of values would be numbers. Meaning how much you have in your game.
These are just random numbers. If you don’t get what I mean then let me explain it this way. Lets say you have 200 of something in the game. Well you would modify that number to 999.00000… or any other number you would like.[/b]
How do you use the F.E.A.R 1/2?
[b]Pretty simple if you ask me. Its OK sometimes we all have those days where we are a little bit confused or just have one of those brain farts.
This is almost the same as the Forced Unleashed Two. Simply just edit the dvars; by there corresponding numbers.[/b]
How to recover your account without taking a long time?
[b]I am not the first person to discuss this but hey some of you may not be able to find this or know about this.
Once you are recovering the profile; wait till the friend icon pops up > turn xbox off > open horizon up > open up your profile through account tool > uncheck recovering status and hit save.[/b]
Feel free to discuss, and ask a few questions. I am available to answer.
Oh before I go I hope this helps a lot of New, present, and upcoming users.
Updated: Huge In depth of what account tool is, and what it does, title id a little in depth.
