I started with uber equipment at level 1 - and so can you

I recently finished a game of KOTC.

I felt like playing more, but wanted a twist.

So, I decided to make a party that started with ultra-great equipment.

For example, my level 1 fighters each started with a +5 Adamantine Bastard Sword with Speed and Holy, and all except my wizard started with +5 Adamantine Full Plate with Fortification III.

And so forth*.

It's kind of fun, obliterating everything.

Don't get me wrong.

Perhaps the best thing about KOTC is the challenge of the tougher fights.

Anyone playing for the first time should definitely not start with an "uber" party. It will eliminate most of the fun.

However, it's a fun change-of-pace.

If anyone else is interested in doing this, I can send you the save game files for a starting uber party and/or tell you how to do it yourself (which might be more fun). PM me.

* Every equipment slot started with a top-notch item, with rings and cloaks for all occasions in inventory.

Except, I didn't bother with bows and arrows.

Even my wizard started with a +6 Strength Belt, for touch attacks (besides, nothing else goes into the belt slot).

Does this involve hex editing? Regardless, what programs and methods did you use?

I wrote a utility (in C++) to edit the game files.

It''s fairly easy to use, though it lacks some featuress I may yet add.

I used a variety of approaches to figure out the format and values used by the game files.

If you're interested, PM me. I'd be happy to give you my phone number (I'm in the contitental U.S.), if you might want to use it, or have questions.

P.S. I've attached a screen-shot of the main screen.
