More Time to Hack JumpGates in Puzzle Quest Galactrix







One of them most irritating things in Puzzle Quest Galactrix
is the JumpGate Hacking minigame. You have a ludicrously short amount of time in a very chancy match-3 game, and the game cascades gems very slowly, chewing up even more precious time.

To extend the amount of time you have, you can hack the game. Here's how:

  1. In the install directory (probably C:\Program Files\Aspyr\Puzzle Quest Galactrix), there is a ZIP file called Assets.zip.
  2. Make a copy of this file (in case you goof up trying to mod the game).
  3. Unzip this file.
  4. Go to \Assets\Scripts\JumpGates\ and you will find a bunch of LUA files that are just plain text files. These files contain Jump Gate information. Edit the time limit (and number of gems in the sequence, if you like) in the AllJumpGates.lua file as well as the individual J__.lua files.
  5. Re-zip Assets.zip now that it has the modified JumpGate data.
  6. Copy it back into the install directory.
Here's a screenshot:

Titan Quest Defiler




TQ Defiler
(download from this page)
Some of the things you can do with TQ Defiler to help you set up screenshots or change your game experience are:
  • Unlock the higher difficulties without having to play through the game: Some of the spectacular 'boss' creatures, such as Talos and the Hydra, only show up in the higher difficulty levels.
  • Activate all teleporters: So that you can jump around the maps without having to play your way through. This is an easy way to shop for gear or find an enemy you want to capture with a screenshot.
  • Change your character's name.
  • Unlimited potion stacking.

Titan Quest Vault




Titan Quest Vault
(TQ Vault can be downloaded here (beta 2.3.1.x) or here (stable 2.3.0.3)
Direct download of Item Collection for TQ Vault).

For outfitting your character, TQ Vault is a crucial resource as it lets you store items outside of the game in 'vault' files. Titan Quest has very little in-game storage, and you aren't really able to cache any significant number of items.

Once installed, TQ Vault adds a directory called 'TQVaultData', and it keeps files with the extension '.vault' there. These files can be shared (just copy them into the 'TQVaultData' directory), and the Community Vault Project posts extensive collections of Vault files to give you a jump-start. The Community Vault Project files include all Set and Unique items, normally the coolest-looking and hardest-to-find items in the game. You can download the latest version here: August 9th, 2009.
