Full Modding

I realized that the game is just a .swf file that has been converted to .exe, this can be undone and the .swf using any (usually paid) .swf to .fla tool would allow you to modify the basics of the game increasing the ability to mod the game to have anything you desire allowing modding further than just the .xml edits.

Here's the tool I used to convert the .exe to a .swf; it will give you 7 files, NeoScav is "NEOScavenger[6].swf":
http://swftools.sourceforge.net/exe-to-swf.html

The other 6 files are just support, using a .swf player you can still play Neoscav using NEOScavenger[6].swf as long as all the other files NeoScav requires is in the folder. If you want to re-compile the game you can use this tool to convert swf to exe:
http://swftools.sourceforge.net/swf-to-exe.html

When it comes to converting it from .swf to .fla you'll need to find a tool for it as most are paid but if you're willing to pay for it; here's a tool I've used in the past. I'm not sure if it works for NeoScav but I'm sure if you try multiple tools eventually one will work perfectly if not this one:

could you make a video showing this in action, including the modding bit? how much more access do you get with modding? like do you get better tooling?

I need more help understanding how to get modding with this.

1) even with teh swf in the NS folder, it won't play/load past 0% in the flash editor
2) got Trillix and tried converting the .swf to FLA, it says https://i.imgur.com/b9w2Yhe.png something about flex builder
3) program just crashes when converting and it can't seem to open the scripts.

Huh. The free JPEX flash decompiler is the only one that actually lets me see the scripts.

i'd like to see you do this because i don't think this is for the average person and I think I did it wrong or something.

Hey sorry, I sorta posted this an then abandoned the topic; didn't mean to. It's not for the average person as this would give you the source code to the game; the reason why it'd be full modding is that you could add, change or remove anything about the game. You'd need to get the .fla file then open it up in flash, then from there you can look at the code; if you wanted to mod it you'd need to do some tutorials on how to script in flash.
