Generate Code: All packets

Packet Information

Message ID:0x51
Direction:Client -> Server (Sent)
Used By:Starcraft Broodwar, Diablo II, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, Starcraft, Diablo, Warcraft III
Format:(DWORD) Client Token
(DWORD) EXE Version
(DWORD) Number of CD-keys in this packet
(BOOLEAN) Spawn CD-key **

For Each Key:
(DWORD) Key Length
(DWORD) CD-key's product value
(DWORD) CD-key's public value
(DWORD) Unknown (0)
(DWORD) [5] Hashed Key Data

(STRING) Exe Information
(STRING) CD-Key owner name *
Remarks:Contains the EXE Version and Hash as reported by CheckRevision(), and CDKey values. Spawn may only be used for STAR and W2BN.

The data that should be hashed for 'Hashed Key Data' is:
  1. Client Token
  2. Server Token
  3. Key Product (from decoded CD key)
  4. Key Public (from decoded CD key)
  5. (DWORD) 0
  6. Key Private (from decoded CD key)

The data that should be used for EXE Information should be separated by one space, in the format of:
  1. EXE Name (like war3.exe)
  2. Last Modified Date (like 08/16/09)
  3. Last Modified Time (like 19:21:59)
  4. Filesize in bytes (like 471040)
An example of a valid string would be:
war3.exe 08/16/09 19:21:59 471040

* The CD Key owner name must be no greater than 15 characters, otherwise it becomes trimmed by

** This BOOLEAN value is actually a DWORD, not a BYTE. You will be IP-banned for 5 minutes if you assume BYTE and not use the proper DWORD. Also, this value can only be TRUE for Starcraft, Japan Starcraft and Warcraft II only. Any other game will cause unexpected results.
