KrossX's Magical Tools™ (Edited)

Just a nicely named thread to group some sillies I made and perhaps new ones. You'll probably need Visual C++ 2010 Runtimes if you haven't them already: Runtimes' link.

Disclaimer/Warning! This programs may make your computer blow up and/or make you bald. Use them at your own risk. And should really not be used with admin rights... really.

  • Arcana Heart 3 (input config)
    View attachment 216650

    To use it, start the program with the EXE to be modified on the command line. Or, just drag the file to be modified on top and it will open it.

  • TypeX Config (typex_config replacement)
    View attachment 216651 View attachment 216652

    To use it, just move/copy the program into the typex_loader game folder and execute it. Supports keyboards and joysticks compatible with DirectInput8.

  • Replacer (command line tool)

    It will replace a set of characters for another in a given file. For example (batch included in zip):
    replacer --file game.exe --s1 D:\ --s2 .\\ [--wide]

    The new optional --wide switch will cheaply convert the Strings into wide versions and search for them instead. Necessary for Matrimelee Matsuri for example. Basically, if there's no match in your searches, try with the --wide switch.

    The idea is to have a tool to change save locations for the arcade games. But never forget to always make a backup of the file beforehand.

  • GetFocus (command line tool)

    Usage: GetFocus --title TITLE --wait NUMBER

    It will search for TITLE in current desktop's windows. If there's first match, it will wait for a NUMBER of ms and give focus afterwards. Not using parameters will simply try to use the current window as target and wait for 1s before giving it focus.

  • BitrateCalculator (WPF)
    View attachment 216653

    Exactly what it says, a very simple bitrate calculator.

  • PDF Bookzoom: Simple brute force replacement of the zoom/fit tags. That way your current zoom won't be changed when clicking PDF bookmarks.

    Usage: PDF_Bookzoom filename, or just drag the file on top.

There have been some arcade "ports" to PC, like BlazBlue. Most are from the TypeX arcades and use a typex_loader that comes with its config tool. I hated it so I made a replacement. Then, to change the location of the save data on this games I made the Replacer tool.

Another "port" is Arcana Heart 3, with no input config. To change keys, you had to hex edit the executable which is quite annoying.

Then, someone was doing some stuff with the console window and wanted to run things and get focus back to the console. That's what GetFocus was for.
