Tried to get XCC mixer running the other day on windows 10, unfortunately I was running into the following problem:


Running XCC Mixer without admin rights:
- Impossible to set up the game paths, palette files were not found and viewing shp files was impossible


Running XCC Mixer with admin rights:
- Drag and Drop is not working (a known windows 10 problem that happens with other programs too)



The solution:
I patched XCC Mixer so it saves its settings in HKEY_CURRENT_USER rather than HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
Note: that means you should run XCC Mixer without admin rights from now on. Do not install your games into the program files folder!


Decimal offset for hex editor: "505590" - change "02" to "01"

OR

Memory address: "0047C2F5" - change "PUSH 80000002" to "PUSH 80000001"

-

This is for version 1.47

And before someone posts in here and asks why I didn't use the source code and compile a fixed executable: Try to compile it on your own, it's rocket science! Patching was much quicker

Drag and drop does work with admin rights, as far as I know. The issue is just that you can't do it between apps started with dirrerent rights.

Which means, you just need to be dragging from an Explorer window also started as admin #Tongue

Worth a try for sure

I could make a patch for it too, but I guess he could also compile a fresh executable since he managed to compile it from sources

I guess that all you'll need is a find and replace in the project, replacing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE with HKEY_CURRENT_USER, as long as it is related to XCC Mixer settings. It shouldn't be hard.

For those being impatient, here is all you need to modify blade's version

address for hex editor: 750776 (decimal)

memory address: 0x004B80B7


or just download the file from here:

Banshee: does the package you provide contains all palettes from  Lin Kuei Ominae ?

See this post : https://ppmforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=33830

It would be cool if your XCC version featured all palettes and correct paths by default.

No, I didn't add it. But I can add it as soon as possible.
