Not sure how to get it to open heap files, it errors out, seems it just wants message, although the heap files do resemble message files a bit.

TraduSCI's version support is very limited. It might also be that my original thought is correct that like some of the later Dynamix titles it uses SCI type resources, but not the scripting. Anyway, before you give up on it, check the manual, especially http://sciwiki.sierrahelp.com/index.php?title=TraduSCI_Manual#Things_to_do_in_the_beginning

Thankyou for all the suggestions, and i won't be giving up,  i am mapping network streams atm, and when i get brave enough i jump back to the hep files.

So far i have learned this about all heap files.

header
short -> 145
int32 file-length


OK yeah that isn't a lot, but is more than i knew before :D

The HEP and SCR files are intertwined so that if you add or remove bytes in the HEP file, you'd have to rewrite the SCR file, changing offsets to things that come after the spot you've changed.
It is so much easier if you can keep things the same length. :)

Have you considered making an Winsock wrapper DLL to do this instead? If all you want to do is change an IP address, that should be easier.

Writing a wrapper now, slow going, i can change the IP in the hep and force the client to use my server(s), but it is messy, and for the older version 1.x or 2.x the hostname used is too short to do this hack, so eventually i will need to find out how to at least customize the 45012.hep file.
