Nova pilot files

Is there any documentation anywhere on the format of the Nova pilot files? I want to write a uitilty to reset all of the bits that record that a given pers is dead, but I can not find any information on the format of the pilot files anywhere, other than that the data is "encrypted"

Well, that's because that's all we've been told. So far as I know, the encryption code hasn't been released or hacked. But there is some utility somewhere that takes EV/O pilot files and makes them EVN pilot files. You might try tracking down the author of that program for more info.

If you look in the EV or EVO addons pages (utilities, guides, etc.), you might find some documentation, some programs that decrypt/encrypt EV/O pilots, and some programs that edit pilots. Obviously the Nova pilot files hold more data than EV/O, but the basic encryption may be identical.
