This guide will show you how to Hex Edit the game to unlock 5 exclusive costumes.
Information About The Mod
Costume Quest 2 had 5 exclusive costumes that were only available on some versions of the game. The Eyeball, Pumpkin, Robot, & Unicorn costumes were only available on Steam if you Pre-Ordered the game. The Sackboy costume was only available on the Playstation version. I believed the costumes were available in all versions of the game and was just locked away. Turns out I was right. After many many hours of a trying a bunch of things. I was finally able to Hex Edit the game and enable access to the exclusive costumes. It was a very simple change to make it work.
Some things to note. This change should work on saves you already have. If they don’t then you will have to start a new game to get access to the exclusive costumes. Also once you do this mod. Your saves will only work on a modded version. If you try to load the save on an unmodded version of the game. The game will crash.
Note: I actually figured out how to do this 2 year ago in 2020. I had this guide posted elsewhere. But decided to share it here.
To access the exclusive costumes. You have to purchase them from Shady’s Secret Shop.
How To Mod The Game
( 1 ) Located the Costume Quest 2 executable.
On Steam it will be CostumeQuest2.exe & CostumeQuest2_DX9.exe.
( 2 ) Open the executable in a Hex Editor. I use Hex Workshop myself.
( 3 ) Use the Search function to locate the Text String ‘Costume_Robot’.
Then zero out the following costumes –> Costume_Robot, Costume_Unicorn, Costume_Pumpkin, Costume_Eyeball, & Costume_Sackboy.
See the pictures below on how it should look Before and After the change.
( 4 ) Now save the changes.
( 5 ) After you save the changes you can close the Hex Editor, then go run the Game and you will see you have access to the exclusive costumes.
