    Hero Line Wars Bank Editing


    This bank file seems extremely simple, however I don't understand what "Points" is. I need 380+ wins on my account to access all the heroes. I've tried the obvious edit to over 380 wins, but it just resets. I've tried many much higher numbers in Points but it doesn't seem to do anything.

    Bank file simply says:

    Games 1

    Points 112064

    https://i.imgur.com/fdFSTY1.png

    (That's after my bank file being reset).

    --------------



    Played 3 (2 wins) games and then it changes to:

    Points 110210

    Games 3

    Wins 2

    After playing legitimately. As you see despite 3x the games, points barely change.

    Any help is appreciated.

    The formula is:
    Code:
    (8 * Games) + (13 * Wins) + (813 - Games) * (138 - Wins)
    so in numbers: (i take your 3rd game for expample)
    Code:
    (8 * 3) + (13 * 2) + (813 - 3) * (138 - 2) = 110210
    have fun

    Awesome work @Sterillium, how does it work if I have over 138 wins though (for example trying to do 612 games, 401 wins)

    (8*612) + (13*401) + (813-612) * (138-401) =


    4896 + 5213 + 201 * -263


    -2711530.. or is it -42754. Math + balancing equations was never my strong suit. Either way the bank files can't use negatives in int entries I believe.

    Any help greatly appreciated


    ---------

    Edit. I edited my bank file to 137 and played up to 138, and then 139 wins.

    https://i.imgur.com/cdJT7MR.png

    My points are eventually going to go negative, how do I counter that in points?.. Currently playing more games to find out how it deals with the negative numbers.

    Games: 246
    Points: 3208
    wins: 139

    ---
    Edit 2

    https://i.imgur.com/HlFX2bB.png

    Points went negative after getting to 146 wins.

    Games: 265
    Points: -366
    Wins: 146

    Can no longer edit my points within starbank so manually edited the text in notepad. Tried doing the numbers mentioned above (401 wins, 612 games and -42754 AND -2711530 and it reset my stats each time. Tried with multiple different sets of numbers but to no avail.)

    -42754, as any calculator would've told you already

    glad i could help thank you @Tracky btw

    @phaer try this one:
    (8 * 1001) + (13 * 856) + (813 - 1001) * (138 - 856) = 154120
    Code:
              <Key name="Games">
                      <Value int="1001"/>
              </Key>
              <Key name="Points">
                      <Value int="154120"/>
              </Key>
              <Key name="Wins">
                      <Value int="856"/>
              </Key>
    tested and working

    seems you have to avoid negative numbers, like gettin a good win/play rate, take 80-85% winrate and all is good
    and yeah... use BankSigner instead of StarBank, StarBank isnt very accurate in resigning

    So I finally got one working with 381 wins, through using your working code, BankSigner and then figuring out how to balance the equation (again thanks to your numbers).

    Problem 2.. https://i.imgur.com/xNYMVwL.jpg

    None of the characters are unlocking? Is it possible that they're there just as "chase" rewards and the author didn't actually implement them yet? Or is it more likely that their unlocks are tied to separate entries in the bank file which are supposed to occur naturally upon victories. I hate asking for help but you guys have been invaluable so far. Any help unlocking these characters is again, truly appreciated. I'll keep trying myself in the mean time - going to set my wins to one less than is required to unlock the first char, and play up that victory manually to see if the bank changes itself.

    ---

    Update - got to 180 after editing to 179, still no 180 hero unlock - guess the anti-cheat goes deeper than a simple win/loss number.

    Very weird, thanks for all your help @Sterillium, hopefully I can figure out a way of unlocking it. I saw on discord someone asked the creator if they were in yet, the creator of the map said that hackers don't get the champions.

    i think this guy is trolling you, i found nothing about a anticheat for that, i searched in every possible way

    u have a proof for this version a other player is playing this locked chars?

    Unfortunately I have never seen anyone play an unlocked character, I guess it's probably just the map creator trying to cover them not being in the game. Is there models / abilities for characters like hanzo, genji, Zarya, Dva? They're a few of the unlockable chars. If they aren't in the map then I guess it's just a chase reward.

    Either way thanks for all your help Sterillium.
