Typical usage of binXml is to read a GRID binary XML file, convert it to plain text XML, then edit the text XML file and save back the result to binary XML.

/!\ Make a backup of your desired binary XML file first! This is very important! /!\

Для этого примера, мы будем использовать зашифрованный cameras.xml файл из сетки.Бинарный XML в в

и в формате XML с текстоsвоме оригинальный cameras.xml файл в безопасное место, или, как вариант, продублировать файл, и переименуйте копию что-то вроде камеры.бкп


2. Click "Add Files", in this case it's the Jupiter Eagleray MK5's cameras.xml (cars\stk\cameras.xml)

Binxml tut 1

Binxml tut 2


3. Select your output folder, in this case we will choose a new folder that was created in the Jupiter Eagleray MK5 folder (cars\stk\camera_mod)

Binxml tut 3


4. Convert!

5. Edit & save file

Text XML to Binary XML Edit

1. Select your modified file

Binxml tut 9

Binxml tut 10


2. Select output folder

Binxml tut 11


3. Convert!

Below is the original way of converting the Binary XML files, using Windows Batch/Command Line Interface


Command Line Usage:

binXml.exe [options] source_file

where options are:

[--textxml|-t { file_name }] : Output file as text XML

[--binxml|-b { file_name }] : Output file as binary XML

[--version|-V] : Show version

[--help|-h] : This help

Notes:

  1. source_file can be either binary XML or text XML
  2. If no output file is given, then source_file is displayed on screen

Typical usage of binXml is to read a GRID binary XML file, convert it to plain text XML,

then edit the text XML file and save back the result to binary XML.

For this example, we will be using the encrypted cameras.xml file from GRID.

  1. Copy the original cameras.xml file somewhere safe, or alternatively, duplicate the file, and rename the copy something like cameras.bkp
  2. Create a new batch file (Right click in windows explorer, New > Text Document, rename New Text Document.txt to something like convert.bat, click YES to change extension)
  3. Right click the convert.bat file, and click Edit (near the top of the Right Click Context Menu)
  4. convert.bat should now be open in Notepad. Copy the following code into it;
@ECHO OFF
binXML.exe --textxml=cameras.txt.xml cameras.xml
PAUSE

The above command can be a little confusing;

cameras.txt.xml = Your NEW decrypted Text XML, e.g your output filename, this can be anything...

cameras.xml = The original encrypted Binary XML, which you should have a backup of just incase.

The @ECHO OFF and PAUSE parts aren't needed but they are good practise for writing Windows Batch files;

@ECHO OFF = "Don't display the commands within the batch file in the console output"

PAUSE = "Don't close the console after i've finished processing the above commands"

  1. Save and close notepad
  2. Make sure you have the convert.bat inside the same folder as the cameras.xml you are decrypting ('NOT' the backup one), because we haven't specified a directory for the file, Windows Batch will only search in the folder the batch was run from.
  3. Run the batch (double click it)

If you have followed this tutorial, you should end up with a new cameras.txt.xml file (or whatever you called the output filename in the command).

The resulting file can be edited with any good text editor, however i recommend using something like Notepad++ which has syntax highlighting, and has the ability to collapse and expand parameter sets for certain filetypes.
