World of Goo – hidden profile file and parsing data

I thought I’d have lost my up-to-date World of Goo profile and thus savegame.

In the end, it was located in Local Settings\Application Data\2DBoy\WorldOfGoo instead of _%APPDATA%_2DBoy\WorldOfGoo.

I already started on a php script to parse, later edit and write the profile file again, after decrypting and afterwards encrypting the pers2.dat file with GooTool.

Anyway, I gladly don’t have to finish it.

Here it is…:

<?php

 public $fullscreen;                // 10,fullscreen4,true | 10,fullscreen4,false
 public $mostRecentProfile;        // 4,mrpp1,0 | 0 = 0..2
 public $profiles;

 public function __construct($countrycode, $fullscreen, $mostRecentProfile, $profiles)
 {
 $this->countrycode            = $countrycode;

 $countrycode = substr($str, 16, 2);

 // drop "10,fullscreen4,", read fullscreen boolean
 $fullscreen = (boolean)substr($str, 15, 4);
 $str = substr($str, 19);

 // drop "10,fullscreen4,", read profile id 0..2
 $mostRecentProfile = intval(substr($str, 8, 1));

 $profiles = array();

 while(substr($str, 0, 3) != ',0.')
 {

 $str = substr($str, 11);

 $commapos = strpos($str, ',');
 $len = intval(substr($str, 0, $commapos));
 $profiledata = substr($str, $commapos+1, $len);
 $str = substr($str, $commapos+1+$len);
