    Make sure that if you add more than 12 weapons to the starting file, you edit what your starting inventory limit is, or the game will load you with nothing.

    no, that'll work fine, its just easier to keep track if you only put in the files you want to change. Copying the folder is good though, it keeps all the directories in the right order.

    As for getting items into your current game, the best way is to alter the quest rewards. The best thing is to pick one of the repeatable ones. go to \Documents\DeadIsland\out\Data\Quests\ and open the act folder that is what your playing. Open either mani quests, or side quests. Side quests has more options, including the repeatable ones.

    To change the reward info when accepting the quest change the brief info
    e.g

    brief_item="&Melee_leg_Zedsdemise_N&"
    brief_item_color="4">

    then further down change the actual reward

    item="Melee_leg_Zedsdemise"
    item_color="4"/>

    the color is for the quaility 0 = white down to 4 = orange

    the brief bit isnt that important, whatever is says there, as long as you changed the set reward section, you will get that. It just shows what you will get when you start the quest.

    Just make sure you get everything precice, or it might mess up your game.

    By usinga repeatable quests, you can keep changing hte reward by laoding game, handing in, getting reward, exit game, change the reward in teh quests file, then go back to game and hand in again. This way you can quickly get all the items you want




    Also as a note, even if you give yourself 4 weapons, exactly the same, they wont have the same stats, the game chooses them randomly, one shotgun i got had 900 dmg and 16 accuracy, another had 1000 dmg and 15 accuracy. Its best to get a few of each, then pick the best of the lot

    The M1 garand isnt working I will post my list of best weapons to have for a level 50 - Edit Shops.scr in Datapak0 make sure the file is in your Out folder in my documents/deadisland/out

    for me I edited the prison shops with

    //WEAPONS - ORANGE
    ColorItem("Melee_leg_Zedsdemise", 0, 4, 50)
    ColorItem("Melee_leg_VikingOfTheSouth", 0, 4, 50)
    ColorItem("Firearm_leg_DefenderOfTheMotherland", 0, 4, 50)
    ColorItem("Firearm_leg_CrowdPleaser", 0, 4, 50)
    //MISC
    Keep misc as it is - removed here to shorten my post, alot of weapons can be found in the collectables.scr

    After playing around with it more, i dont recommend changing the sidequest rewards, for some reason, when changing jsut one of the rewards for those, it stops the npc's from functioning. I changed a reward for one quest, and an npc completly unreleated stopping working. As for changing the main quests, you cant change the rewards once youve started. maybe if you leave the zone, you can change the quest rewards, but i havnt had chance to test it further. Just make sure you back up the rewards that you had when startign the game. Or you might not beable to load that save.

    hi... i have tried the changing of the rewards on the main quest and it works fine... the only setback though is that it started me back on the prologue and lost all my weapons... is there a way not to lose your weapons in the inventory in the beginning of the "rise and shine" quest?

    Hey guys, I'm sorry for being a little dumb, but how can I open .src files using Win7? It doesn't let me to right-click and choose Open With... T-T

    Oh, and also I've managed to edit the default.loot archive located in Data1.pak to force every weapons spawned to be Orange (legendary or Epic, as the dev's call it). I got 2 Bushmaster, 1 M.C, 1 Ban (lol XD), 1 Katana and Wakizashi and other normal items just written in Orange....
    I don't recommend you to change these .pak files since you can be VAC Banned. Don't listen what other people say or said. My friend is now VAC banned because he edited .pak files and it detected that default game files were modified. If you want to take the risk, go ahead, but instead of modifying .pak files, save your edited files to "Documents\DeadIsland\out\Data" path to lower the risk or avoid being banned. Also, remember to go to Options and deactivate Internet game and VAC. To help you a little with these changes, take a look at Steam Forums page talking only about modding and fixing the game's graphics and other issues/glitches.

    Link

    REMEBER: NEVER HACK ONLINE OR EDIT THE GAMES' DEFAULT FILES WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING OR WHEN YOU HAVE THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING BANNED. FOR THOSE WHO EDITED .pak FILES, DO A CACHE INTEGRITY CHECK TO RESET GAME'S FILES TO THE ORIGINAL ONES.

    Hope I helped, see you guys. Anything, just PM me or add Steam: Caioaa95.

    PM me for my Steam ID or any questions related to my board posts/threads.

    I found a way to alter the items you get when choosing a chapter. This could be used to cheat in a massive way obviously, or you could use it to regain what you should have at that point. You can choose what level you are, what weapons, mods, ingrediants and collectables you have. You can even give yourself the items from the upcoming DLC, like the shock pulse bomb (which blows up the heads of nearby zombies), but this maybe be too naughty and get you told off by higher ups.

    Anyway, after opening and extracting Data0.pak, open the files Inventory.scr and Collectables.scr, these contain the item names of all the base items in the game. Copy and paste ones you want into a temporary file(this makes it easier incase you mess up). Open up default_player_setup.scr and locate the text sub Items_low, theres also medium, high and very high, dependign on the game chapter. Under there, you will find what items you will currently load with, paste the ones you want into that spot. Example:

    sub Items_High(){
    Item("Melee_CrowbarGen", 1);
    Item("Melee_MacheteBrutalGen", 1);
    Item("Medkit_HealthPackLarge", 1);
    Item("Cash_Cash", 4000);
    }

    Becomes

    sub Items_High(){
    Item("Melee_leg_Zedsdemise", 1);
    Item("Firearm_Sawed-OffShotgun", 1);
    Item("Throwable_Molotov", 1);
    Item("Craftpart_Algae", 1);
    Item("Craftplan_Shockcraft", 1);
    Item("Collectable_Idcard000", 1);
    Item("Collectable_News00", 1);
    Item("Cash_Cash", 500000);
    }

    Theres too many items to list here, just be sure to get all the chacters in the order shown above and you should be fine.

    If you want me to post a compiled list of every item in the game, PM me, its way too big to post here.

    I havnt found out how to alter the quality of weapons yet, but giving yourself a white lvl 50 Zed's Demise for example will be good enough, till you find better the proper way.
