Want the Car? Get the RogueCar!

I decided to write a small Win32 utility – the Rogue Squadron crack for getting the hidden car and to place it on Internet, that everybody can enjoy the famous KOELSH black Buick also in PC version of this outstanding Star Wars game.

Now it is ready and available only here and for you… Click here to download… and May the Force be with you!

There is another hidden vehicle you can drive… Enter CHICKEN passcode for the imperial AT-ST! Probably you already know the passcode Imperial AT-ST for this chicken-like walker, but perhaps did not notice that actually it has an extra speed control!

You can use the button which allows left/right controls to roll craft instead of turning it (E button in PC) to increase speed more…

Chapter II The Hidden Vehicle

After presenting my RoguEdit player profile editor to the Star Wars Community I learned new interesting facts such as cheat codes from other Rogue Squadron fans. Some of them are for Nintendo 64 version only. One of such codes – KOELSH lets you fly a black Buick instead of V-Wing.

Looking through the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron data file I already noticed that actually there are two V-Wing models there and one of them has “wheels” for some reason. Suddenly everything became clear for me but because of lessons I had no time to check my suppositions… Later I got new information about this hidden vehicle – in the RogueSquadron.NET Forum I read the following

Lt Guilo [Flight Leader] posted February 14, 2000 11:48 PM There is no passcode for the Caddy (it’s actually not a Caddy… I know this because I’ve personally spoken with Factor5 programmer Rudy Zember, who owns the real-life vehicle the car seen in the game is an actual replica of…) in the PC version of the game, but there is for the N64 version: KOELSCH. To access the car in the PC version, you must manually edit the game’s files with a Hex editor… and I couldn’t tell you which file, or what lines of code to edit, or what to change, either…

Ha, thanks! I already knew what should I do approximately… At last yesterday Novruz the Holiday of Spring has began here! Taking this opportunity I continued the excavations and after less than a couple of hours I was driving the famous Black Buick. It was really easy… May be there is more direct way, but I don’t know it yet…
