There is a possibility to play Microsoft Internet games for Windows XP/ME again !!


Recommended Posts

@win32 @Ximonite @jumper and for everyone who understands the IDA language

HI , i finally found the solution. But implementing it is not easy.

I am not a programming specialist, but I always look at it. In fact, the server does not contain source code and his mission was to link the players only. The source code is fully found in chkr.dll and chkrres.dll.
The source code is extracted using IDA hex rays Decompiler and all the game pictures are in chkrzm.exe and we extract them using Resource Hacker
This is an example of a game checkers.

Therefore, I call on all programming specialists to cancel and reduce the obligation to enter the server. So the starting point becomes based on the code only.

My grandfather wants these games. He almost gets Alzheimer after leaving the computer when these games are over. I promised him that I would find a solution, as he does not want another.

Please help me.

And whoever tries, I tell him, "Please do not change the appearance of the game."

All source is in .dll
I found it all with IDA and ResourcesHacker.

cmnresm.dll contains all the windows dialogs, all the menus windows and games bitmap and also contains STRINGTABLE.

cmnclim.dll contains some DIALOG and Menus windows

chckrres .dll contains configs, all game bitmap, icons, and DIALOG windows.

chkr.dll contain the source code. I found the special functions of the game with using IDA

This is an example of checkers

And thanks.

I don't have any Microsoft Internet games on my Windows XP system to examine. What are they and is this checkers program downloadable?

You can get it from Add / Remove programs. Add / remove components windows.

You can also find these games in Windows Me.

IDA Hex Rays just generates pseudo C code from disassembled code, that's no way near the actual source code, it can't be just pulled from compiled binary, it doesn't work that way.

Yes, but IDA can be used to modify the source code in some way that I don't know. They use it to create updates to Windows .DLL

Source code is a collection of 1 or more original files containing the program code that usually come with the project files for specific IDE (Integrated Development Environment) or makefiles (that could be "real" makefiles or just the kind (eg. CMake) that describes how to generate "real" makefiles or project files for specific environment), which the IDE or the program that reads the makefile use to know about code files that have to be run through the compiler to produce object files from each code file and finally invokes the linker to link the resulting object files into a final executable.

No one is actually modifying the source code for closed-source software, just the resulting binaries. ;)

Does this mean impossible to modify these games?

Please do not put things that violate copyright , like a leaked source code or anything related to that
