Viewing Code - AgeMessageSnarf
Displays all Age of Empires 2 game messages, even those not for you
In-game message snarfing utility for Microsofts Age of Empires 2. Tested with AoE2, Conquerors expansion, version 1.0c. In-game chat messages are sent to all players, not just the intended recipients, and filtered client-side. This little utility displays _all_ the messages, even those players of the other team(s) send to their mates. Just make sure the machine running AgeMessageSnarf can see the game traffic. A second, unpublished version injects the messages back into the network so they show up in-game as if they were sent to me. Due to a sequence number field in the packets though, this makes the game go out of sync(not always, but I stopped my research there).
