Help wanted
« on: October 22, 2020, 02:08 »
Context: i want to make videos with default (or at least constant) camera distance but people type -cam 2000, -cam 3000 etc and camera distance changes when watching  replay

Problem:
i can't find camera distance offset to manually set it

DotA has various anti hack measures and doesn't allow most tools which can do it.

ReplaySeeker with SimpleCamera works but it doesnt let me set the distance, only to zoom in/out with hotkeys.

I tried to adapt the code from SimpleCamera repository (https://github.com/StarveTheEgo/SimpleCamera/blob/master/CameraManager.cs) but it doesnt seem to work (tried to get offsets with
Spoiler for Hiden:

      memUnitPointer = 0;
      memFog = 0;
      for (int index = 0; index <= 12288; ++index)

                memPosition = pMemory.ReadProcessInt32(num0 + 1868) & -65536;
               // System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("memOther memPosition 0");

and

        return this.pMemory.ReadFloat32(this.memoryBlockOther + 832);
      }
      set
      {
        this.pMemory.WriteFloat32(this.memoryBlockOther + 832, value);
      }
    }
by copy-pasting and adjusting the code to execute it in a standalone program. The loop in GetMemoryLocationsForReplayData basically runs through and never reads the expected values. Its full of magic numbers, so i dont fully understand which offsets and why its checking, apparently searching for the camera object. The offsets there are added to the game.dll base address in my code)

What i need is either the static offset from Game.dll (if exists), advice on how to adapt the mentioned code better or any other working method. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Game.dll module address is dynamic (even if it can persist for years, it is still dynamic), so you gotta always get current base address of this module in runtime;

For example, w3loader tries to find base address using this function:
https://github.com/w3lh/w3l/blob/d4b0bf403891c6528024e0375c81c2d6d6652f0a/exe/w3l.c#L299

Magic numbers are from original ReplaySeeker / SimpleCamera code by the way

Also some offsets in SimpleCamera are not alright, you might have to re-discover those yourself, in case they still will not work

I mean static offset off game.dll implying i can get the address of game.dll itself already.

Now that you mention it maybe the code in simplecamera is wrong and this is why it doesnt work. Is the code in the repository not the same as the one the original dll was compiled from? Because as i said the plugin inside replayseeker works fine

Then i have zero idea what is meant by static offset of game.dll here, aren`t you messing up with terms?

Yesh, there is an old version of SimpleCamera plugin in my repository, but not newer one
Spoiler for Hiden:

NOTE: This plugin is deprecated, i will upload improved version soon (fixed, based on SimpleCamera V2 Beta)
Well, 'soon' did not happen since no one wanted it, including me :-D

You can find dll of v2-beta plugin (which is not perfect too, but way more cool) and decompile it yourself

Also, even simpler, you can use CheatEngine or similar, find there offset of camera distance and just freeze it to desired value

Well, static in the sense that its always same on every launch. I did some exploring with cheat engine and the distance is basically stored on a dynamic address which is stored in some structure which address is based on value of some registers, so i couldnt get track of any static offset to find the distance. Maybe i just dont have enough experience to evaluate the register values,  seems like a lot of work. Or maybe i made some mistake because there were actually many places where the needed value/pointer to that value can be stored but the only actually working 1 was the one i mentioned.

Spoiler for Hiden:
You can find dll of v2-beta plugin (which is not perfect too, but way more cool) and decompile it yourself

Good idea, need to try, weird that i didnt think of that (guess because i assumed the repository code is the same but you said its not)

Spoiler for Hiden:

This was the first thing i tried. Dota doesnt like cheat engine and keeps crashing, also its hard to find the value inside replay + its really annoying to do all this every time

The address is dynamic but the offset off that address can be static (like fog offset in maphacks) or dynamic (stored somewhere which seems to be the case)

Here you can dig whole bank of game.dll knowledge, those guys went crazy into finding structures and offsets

Not sure if there is whole camera structure, but i believe their source code is extremely helpful

Like, here is Camera structure without lots of fields, but it most likely has your desired distance field

It will require some work to find static offset of Camera structure anyway

Either you finish their work there (is not really hard, btw), recognize and uncomment CCamera properties; Then just access global UI object and get camera from there

Either find this Camera structure yourself

Either google it somehow

Here are offsets for global UI btw:
https://github.com/hackerlank/dreamdota/blob/master/DreamWarcraft/Offsets.cpp#L989


2nd argument (int value) is version code of Game.dll file
1.26a is probably 6401 afaik, but you better ensure yourself

3rd argument is a static offset from Game.dll

From there you can find way to access your desired value: UI->CCameraWar3->CCamera->distance

So, there are 2 camera distance variables.

1. Is the one you can track from dreamdota offsets

GLOBAL_UI (Game.dll + 0xAB4F80) -> CCameraWar3 (*GLOBAL_UI + 0x254) -> CCamera (*CCameraWar3+0x34) -> Distance float (*CCamera + 0x8C)

It shows the actual value of camera distance but changing it doesn't do anything. Upon changing it in Cheat Engine it changes itself back with no effect (if you freeze it its same). Basically its read only value.

2. Is the actual camera value which is updated through player structure i was talking about before (according to debugging when you type -cam in dota, for example, basically when you change it with triggers). When you change it in Cheat Engine it changes the camera distance in game.

See screenshot for clarity

When i took apart 1 .mix based maphack it used a static offset which was pointing to the 1 variable as well. However adjusting distance using that tool works while changing it at the same offset manually doesn't which really puzzles me.
