Punch Club Encryption Application

Posted in Research, Development on Jan 13, 2016

Punch Club is a boxing tycoon management game with multiple branching story lines. Your goal is clear, but how you get there depends on whether you want to legitimately climb the rankings, or take the more ridiculous, shady route.

As I enjoy playing this game that is currently available as early access at steam I ended up with a corrupt save game so I decided to create an application to decrypt / encrypt save games for this lovely game!

Full source code can be found at github (https://github.com/baeckstrom/PunchClubEncryption) feel free to clone this application.

Project open source on GitHub

It's time, the amount of small applications I have developed over the time and all the time I have spent reverse engineering games, applications and other software. Now I'm about to release as much of these tools as possible as open source on GitHub. This is my contribution to the world and I hope this will atleast help someone out there.

You will find the link to my GitHub page in the footer of this website or simply click here.

Shattered Planet PC Savegame Decrypter / Encrypter

Posted in Research, Development on Dec 16, 2014

I noticed that the save data from this game was unreadable (encrypted) so i figured i would try to reverse engineer this to be able to see what data is actually saved from the game. I ended up in writing an application to decrypt and encrypt the save data from the game. The tool supports files like  Assassin.sav , BootSave.sav , DataLogEnc.sav , globalDataEnc.sav , heroEnc.sav and Renegade.sav . The tool support save games from version 2.1.1 of the game and perhaps prior versions as well but probably the encryption key will be updated on future releases to avoid tampering with your save games.

Here is an example of assassin.sav file.

Encrypted data:


Decrypted data:

{strength : 10, wits : 10, maxHealth : 100, abilityLevel : 0, maxAbilityUses : 1, level : 1}
