Talking Looking for an OOB editor - KobHack

I was wondering if anyone has hidden in their archives a copy of a program KobHack. It's an editor for the KOB files in SPIII

I am not sure if a very early version of Mobhack would work, but I don’t have one so I cant tell.

I pulled out Steel Panthers III – Brigade Command and gave it a run under DOSBox. Definitely a different game play vs WW2 and MBT.
The OoB files are a mess, in that the various formations are unrealistic. So I thought I might play around with them and see what I get as an end result.

Looks like I redo one of my OOB editors.
There is a field on the KOB files called "SYMBOL"., It is an unsigned char and occurs as a block of 250bytes straight after the unit name block.
In some units the value of "SYMBOL" matches the icon number in others its different.
I was trying to work out what this field, "SYMBOL" actually did.

The game came with a really basic editor called EDITMBT.

I have the source code for an OOB editor that will read in a KOB file and save it as a CSV, read the CSV and save it as a KOB, but as its based on SPWAW/SPWW2/SPMBT there are a few changes I have to make, which I did not want to do.. Being lazy here.

If you can give me some idea what that SYMBOL block really means would help.

Thanks

No idea at all, sorry. Way too long ago.

Thumbs up KobHack Mobhack Found at last

Found these in/on an ISO copy of SPIII.

Thought you may want to just have a copy for history.

MobHack has come a long way since this version.

MS strikes again..........KOBHACK will run for me in w10 but the old MOBHack won't. I'll have to fire up the XP machine for that.
