BIN Files & Tools (BIN2TXT, TXT2BIN)

Post  Admin on Tue Jul 13, 2010 12:12 pm

BIN2TXT takes a BIN file and makes a text file that you can read and/or edit. TXT2BIN takes a text file and makes a BIN file that the game can read. The text file of a BIN is not just an average text (TXT) file. It contains some special codes. Without going into programming detail, it is just easy to say that you should use a template and edit it to your needs.

Get the BIN File Tools ==>

1. Below is a basic and simple template specific to cooperative maps ( yes, COOP and Single Player maps require different things). Select everything between the double lines, copy and paste into a word file or whatever file can reproduce the text in red (so you can edit). Just replace the names and sentences you want (in the template below the replaceable text in red), but be careful not to delete or replace the special codes or anything not red.

2. Done editing?... cut/paste into a plain text file and/or save as a .txt (make sure it's named the same as the other map file names).

3. Use BIN2TXT tool in order to convert it into a .bin file.

Situation and Mission Intel<-uco>
In order to feed their new followers, a local fanaticle religious cult is launching an attack on your food storage facility. The cult leaders are utilizing an old and forgotten teleport system. Defend the facility from incoming enemy forces.

- Most enemies respawn 2 times, white clothed Palace soldiers resawn 1 time
- Do not have to kill every enemy, killing enough required to open a teleporter
- Teleport yellow light is closed, green light is open
- Visit all 3 teleport areas... start with the leftside or rightside... does not matter!
- Teleporter leftside goes to grave area, rightside goes to oil area
- When first entering the grave area you can step back and teleport into a secret area.
- Middle teleport goes to the cult leader's palace area (must complete both grave and oil areas first)

Keep in mind that the above template is one of a few different
templates that are used... in other words others could be more complex or
allow for more customization.

As you can see, there is not a lot of room for the actual text that you type. So, I recommend keeping it short and to-the-point. If you exceed a certain amount of text, there's no warning. It may display fine when you test it locally on your computer. However, it will most likely get truncated or cut-off when displayed on a different server or computer.
