Hello, first I want to apologize if I am in the wrong area.

On to the question/assistance, something or other.

I am trying to modify an App, a game to be specific, to be more enjoyable for me. So far, I've been able to open it up, find the locations where the files I need to place/overwrite are located. I did so, and closed up the package, however, most of the times I tried it, it would always say something about not being able to "Parse" it. Eventually I got it so that it installs and runs, but the changes don't seem to appear.

This game, Uplink, used to be a PC exclusive, and it was very mod-heavy. Most of the "mods" were simply pictures with a txt file pointing to specific pixels for locations of other things, nothing complicated. I feel that it should be possible with the Android version as well.

I've looked around, and I can't seem to find anything that helps. There is a post on the Uplink section of the Introversion Forums that explains it a little, but no one has gotten back to me.

Can anyone help me? If anyone would be willing to assist me, whether by pointing me in the right direction, or taking, or walking through, or however, I would be grateful.

I could post the APK, tools that were mentioned else, and links I found.

Again, sorry if this isn't the place to ask for help with this particular problem of mine.

Hi!

Perhaps you should ask here...

> Android Development and Hacking > Android Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting

I'm sure someone there can offer some advice.
