    Hey everyone, not going to bother making a long post because I made a video explaining it pretty well, not to mention i will be making tutorials this week over all of the features, but long story short this is a development environment for GSC that provides a massive upgrade to the compiler, along with functionalities not possible within standard GSC, and a visual studio themed editor.

    If you aren't interested in the editor, you might still be interested in the GSXCompilerLib, which is a portable version of all the compiler features, including injection.

    Features:
    - Set/Get memory
    - Call builtin functions to the exe (RPC)
    - Compile gscs with unlimited references to any unique string (fix to the 255 limit from the old compiler)
    - Switch statements fixed
    - Define macros
    - Inject massive GSCs
    - String Reduction Technique that reduces global string usage by 33% (saving on average around 3000 strings)
    - Portable compiler library that includes platform injection features and all optimizations
    - Extended list of builtin functions for faster development
    - Etc, etc, ... etc

    I might be a bit rusty in making threads by the way (or i was never good at it at all :P), considering my last post was over a year ago (I think).

    Release Video:


    UPDATE (5/30/19): Development pc was wiped a while back by a windows error so I no longer have the ability to update or patch this project. The xb360 features will not work due to an address lookup issue, however it can still inject your non-gsx scripts, increase string limits, etc. The GSX compiler library is mobile, however, so you can actually fix the injection and patching issues yourself if you have the knowledge. I apologize to everyone who was intending to use this on xbox; I don't own an xb360 and was not able to do any of the offset work on a live image (tried to do it through ida -- unsuccessfully evidently).

    Download: You must be logged in and thank the post to view hidden content.

    Known Issues:
    - XB360 just doesnt work.
    - You have to have gsx studio installed to the same hard drive as your operating system. Otherwise, your projects will not save correctly.

    Virus scans (includes the updater which is the main download, and then the two packed executables included, excluding the certificate installer which is un-obfuscated):
    Virus Scan for updater: (4/66) [url=https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/1d7281fe9943f8f4bd1539cd4d5f4588b30bbd2d15128ff9d9 ff29f8f5281575/detection]VirusTotal[/url]
    Virus Scan for main exe: (6/66 due to heuristics and enigma) [url=https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/46b92b6ea010336de731e5b053c29c75dcd4df8fe6a2e0c981 ddd42b1c492c1f/detection]VirusTotal[/url]
    Virus Scan for installer: [url=https://www.virustotal.com/#/file-analysis/ZDE1YzFmMGE2OTEwZGQyY2QwMjcyODgxYThlYjliZjA6MTUzND c2MTMzOA==]VirusTotal[/url]

    Note: If you are on Windows 10 and have no antivirus or have windows defender enabled, you need to make an exception for GSX Studio. Windows defender flags it as a trojan so it will automatically get deleted on installation unless you disable defender or make an exception.

    Credits copied from readme:
    -Extinct ~ Support, lots of help with function definitions and alpha testing.
    -SyGnUs ~ GSC Dumper, massive help in the creation and development of unsafe custom functions
    -Agreedbog ~ Help with some assembly for custom functions
    -Alfredo ~ Support, small toolwork here and there
    -Loz ~ General GSC Support
    -Kokole, Nukem, Master131 ~ Original reversal of Black Ops II GSC
    -DTX12 ~ His original compiler work
    -Jwm614 ~ Help with some PC injection addresses and the text editor
    -XTul, TCM, Inc ~ Alpha testing
    -jakedragon24, Cykotic ~ Helped with Xbox SESR Database Collection


    FAQ:
    - Getting 'Failed to write critical data'?
    --- If not on Xbox, reconnect to your target platform. If on xbox, disable all plugins besides the one you are using (JRPC2 or XRPC) and disable any non-host menus or tesseract. These all collide with the tool's ability to communicate with the target platform

    - Having freeze issues on PS3?
    --- Use a clean eboot. Modified eboots can overwrite some of the functions used by gsx studio to enable memory access.

    - Having issues with a project you 'ported' to gsx studio by hand?
    --- Use the built in import project feature. GSX Studio has a project structure unique to the application, and making your own modifications may corrupt the integrity of the project.

    - Getting errors in GSX studio for your project that you dont get in GSC Studio?
    --- GSX studio finds errors in your script that would cause a freeze under normal circumstances. If it is a fatal error, gsx studio will not inject your project before you correct these errors.
    --- This isnt to say that these errors didnt exist in your GSC Studio project, more so that GSC Studio doesnt check for these errors.

    Ill try to keep the virus scans updated but since I push builds frequently I might fall behind. Just let me know and ill update them.

    Are there multiple occurrences of the error? Ie: failed to write multiple times in the same injection?

    As i have previously said, the issue is with the API used to connect to your xbox, not GSX Studio. If you are unable to inject with two separate APIs, you need to set up the plugins required correctly. GSX Studio uses a uniform injection for all platforms, and has been tested by multiple users in multiple scenarios.

    The last user who had this issue resolved it by simply correcting his plugin setup and using JRPC.

    I figured that maybe it was something with JRPC so i accommodated you and spent time importing an entirely new API into the already working system just to try to get your system to work.

    Instead of taking the explanation the developer of the tool gave you, you continue to seek answers from outside sources instead of following through with the answer to your problem.

    I wont be helping you any longer with this issue because i have spent too much time focusing on a bug that doesnt exist outside of select circumstances, which are easily solved.

    I thank you very much for all your help and everyone else that has help me, And trust me I tried the different plugins and put them in different areas in dashlaunch, Also I disabled tesseract as well but nothing was working for me that's why I was just trying to get answers from other people seeing if they fixed it from some other way I didn't know about.

    I'm sorry for wasting your time and thank you again very much for all your help Smile
