"XDF Mover" - a tool to move Xdf entries addresses around

Postby dzidaV8 » Thu Sep 10, 2020 9:55 pm

Hi!

I made a small program to help editing XDF files, especially for OBD2 applications.
Many OSes have the same parameters but located at different addresses, usually whole sections moved an offset as variables were added in development.
This tool allows to offset addresses of all the xdf entries that are in specified address range. Simple as that.

I hope it will be also useful for you folks :)
The repository is https://github.com/dzidaV8/XdfMover

To use, you just load the base XDF, and edit the offset and range. Offset can be negative. The program will tell you if the values are out of range.
Select a name for modified file (it adds "_mod" suffix to the base file by default) and click Modify XDF.
You can also select the same name as base file, then it will update the file. Might be useful moving a few different ranges in one file.

I know that it's not much, as it's my first C# project, but it might be useful :)

[EDIT] If any of you downloaded XdfMover_v1 then delete it and get v1a. I uploaded wrong file and it did not process Xdf tables. Now is all OK.

Very cool tool!. I have one a friend made for me for csv files when using WinOLS this will save some time on conversion back to a xdf

That’s a really cool concept, can’t wait to test it out all the turbo diesel xdf’s are a pain with most models having slight offsets!

Hi all,

dzidaV8: The program won't run on my PC - gives an error stating:
"This app can't run on your PC" Then says:
"to find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher."

Running Windows 10 64-bit on an older Dell Optiplex 780 with an Intel Core2 Duo CPU.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi all,

Ironduke,
Thanks for the reply,
Guess I'll give that a try - though haven't tried building anything since upgrading to Win10!

Try going here

https://github.com/dzidaV8/XdfMover

and click on releases and download the exe there.. looks like he changed it according to the time stamp, that version is smaller but it runs..

The idea is absolutely awesome ...

I did something similar to this for annotating disassembles. (IDA idc creation)

New parameters were inserted/removed in the middle so the offsets do not remain the same.

Whats the sequence to enable the Load XDF button ...

Temporary is a permanent problem!

Yeah the link didn't work, fixed that.
IDK, I'm new to writing PC software, maybe there are some compatibility settings I didn't enable? I compile on Win 10 i5 64bit PC.

It should be always enabled.

It seems there are some issues making a piece of software usable both on the top of the world and down under :lol: Maybe the same reason the Antus's old flash tool never worked here.
