How to open an .idb file?

Recommended Posts

arvark

Hello, I need to find GTAIII HUD memory address and I need to view the EXE's code, so, how do I open the.idb file (The decompiled exe)?

It's an IDA disassembler file. So you'd normally open it with the IDA.

I tried, and I opened it, but where do I find the address I need?

Try the IDB editors from here.

Thanks. I tried to open the .idb file, but the Demo version of IDA does't open old databases (I assume that is old because it's from 2004/2005), so I tried to open the exe, but I didn't found the HUD memory addresses....

 

EDIT: Your link only brought me to GTA SA.IDB...

Yes, those IDB's were created using an older version of IDA, so you need to acquire an older version.

 

To find an address, just press "G" (go to...) and enter the address in hex (without the 0x prefix).

I don't know the address at all, that's what I need to discover...

EDIT: ugh... this piece of crap editor lost my entire (lengthy) 'basic' guide... please wait while I attempt to re-gather my patience and finally bother to work on an actual tutorial.

EDIT: I opened the GTA 3.EXE, I put all the files in a txt file, 192MB heavy!

That's called reverse engineering and it's out of scope from your question, you've just asked what program i need to open .idb files.

Finding GTA 3 Hud addresses? if it's a well documented database and have names from R* Just search for CHud methods.

For example there might be something like CHud::drawVehicleName, drawAreaName, ...

Then you can hack into them.
