Binary is a tool for editing Need for Speed binary files (.BIN, .BUN, .LZC).

Currently supported games are:
- Need for Speed: Underground 1
- Need for Speed: Underground 2
- Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005)
- Need for Speed: Carbon
- Need for Speed: Prostreet

Upcoming supports:
- Need for Speed: Undercover
- Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 (NO!!!)
! Please don't ask support for other games. They may or may not be added over time.

This tool is capable of, and not limited to, editing the following files:
- Global files (GlobalA & GlobalB, and so on)
- Frontend files (FrontA, FrontB, and so on)
- InGame files (InGameA, InGameB, and so on)
- Texture files (Textures.bin)
- MiniMap files (Mini_Map_X.bin)
- Vinyl files (Vinyls.bin)
- NIS files (textures only)

The tool has two standard usage types: User and Modder. User type is pretty straight-forward and requires
from app's user to only select launcher endscript and game directory. Modder type contains user interface
and sub editors for editing files and advanced usage, but requires password that can be found in the
my discord server (see below).

! Do not remove .dll libraries from the app's directory! They are important for the app to function properly.

Installation and basic usage:

! Before installation, make sure that you have installed .NET Core Desktop Runtime 3.1 (x86) or higher. Remember that you have to install x86, not x64, in order to have the app working:

Endscript -> file with .end extension that contains script lines and is used by Binary to make changes to Global files.

Now you can use Binary to install any endscript mod for it. Just follow these steps:

1) Copy the files anywhere on your PC.
2) Run "Binary.exe" as administrator.
3) Select left big red icon with 3 users as the icon.
4) Select main installation .end script provided by the mod you wish to install.
5) Select game directory you wish to install mod for.
6) After installing the mod confirm saving changes.
7) If you wish, you could run the game right away.


To access "Modder" side of the tool, as well as to learn about upcoming mods, get support, report bugs, and get
full documentation and usage, as well as endscript commands, tags, etc, join my discord server! Note that it is
required in order to keep all modders in touch in case of upcoming updates and support issues.
