windows 7/Vista minesweeper mod-app
« on: February 14, 2012, 06:18:37 am »
Following are simple steps to follow to enable hidden secret "Debug" menu in Minesweeper game in Windows Vista and 7:
  • 1. First download and install Resource mod-apper: (not approved yet) http://tkc-community.net/forum/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=224
  • 2. Now launch Resource mod-apper and open following file in it:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Minesweeper\en-US\Minesweeper.exe.mui
  • Note 2: "en-US" folder is found in English language Windows versions, if you have a different language version of Windows, replace en-US with your own localization string like fr-FR, etc.
  • 3. Now expand Menu -> 163 and replace existing code in right-side pane with following code:
Code: [Select]
163 MENU
LANGUAGE LANG_ENGLISH, SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US
{
POPUP "&Game"
{
MENUITEM "&New Game\tF2", 40006
MENUITEM SEPARATOR
MENUITEM "&Statistics\tF4", 40003
MENUITEM "&Options\tF5", 40004
MENUITEM "Change &Appearance\tF7", 40002
MENUITEM SEPARATOR
POPUP "Change Game Style"
{
MENUITEM "Minesweeper", 40020
MENUITEM "Flower Garden", 40021
}
POPUP "Change Board"
{
MENUITEM "Silver and Blue", 40022
MENUITEM "Green", 40023
}
MENUITEM SEPARATOR
MENUITEM "E&xit", 40005
}
POPUP "&Help"
{
MENUITEM "&View Help\tF1", 40008
MENUITEM SEPARATOR
MENUITEM "&About Minesweeper", 40007
MENUITEM SEPARATOR
MENUITEM "Get &More Games Online", 40025
}
POPUP "&Debug"
{
MENUITEM "Toggle Cheat Keys", 40010
MENUITEM SEPARATOR
MENUITEM "Toggle Show Mines", 40011
MENUITEM "Test Text", 40013
MENUITEM "Win", 40015
}
}
  • 4. Now click on "Compile Script" button and save the file.
  • 5. That's it. Now launch the game and get ready to enjoy hidden "Debug" menu.
You just need to replace existing .MUI file present in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Minesweeper\en-US\ folder with this new one.

To replace default file, first rename it to some other name like Minesweeper_backup.exe.mui and then copy and paste new downloaded Minesweeper.exe.mui file in this folder.

This is what it should now look like depending on your settings.

NOTE: If you don't see the "Debug" menu after replacing the file, do as following:

1. Click on "Start button -> All Programs -> Accessories". Right-click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run As Administrator". If you are prompted to enter password, enter the password and continue. You can also open Command Prompt in Administrator mode by typing "cmd" in Startmenu Search box and press "Ctrl+Shift+Enter".

2. Now type mcbuilder and press Enter. Wait for a few seconds to finish the command process and then restart your system.

Now you should get "Debug" menu without any problem. :icon_magician

We generally like to credit the original author instead of making it appear as though we came up with something we did not :)

Now, how would you go about making a trainer for this game that will display the location of the mines?
Hint : look at the function that draws the mines.

why buy a fast car if the speed limit on the freeway is still 65MPH.

People ask "why" too much, more often than not the question should be "why not"

I've never made a mod-app to win something :P

Some games are good for training.
Heckling is an art, and game hacking a science.
