## Step 1: Obtain the color values

Okay, you got your Esheep, and your'e all ready to go Michael Jackson on him. (I mean plastic surgery-wise, not meant to be taken any other way.) But where to start? Well to change his colors to something new, we need to know what colors he has now. And don't just tell me yellow, purple, and peach. We need to be specific here. That is where hexadecimals come into play. When talking about color, hexadecimals are 6 characters long. For instance, the code for hot pink is ff00ff. To find the color codes for Esheep, download Color Cop here: Color Cop

## Step 2: Reverse the code

You saw in the previous screenshot that the code for the lighter part of the sheep's skin was ffc4a1. Now we need to reverse it becuase that is the way the esheep program stores the code. By now you are thinking, "That's easy, ffc4a1 reversed is 1a4cff." Right? Wrong! Hexadecimal are always in twos. ff means 255,c4 means 196, and a1 means 161. To keep the color the same we must reverse it like this.
Then the second two - c4
And finally the last two - ff
The reversed code would be a1c4ff, not 1a4cff.

If you want a MUCH easier method then just visit here and download eSheep Hacker (it's a program I made that does it all for you):

It's easy, like the picture below. Note: I know this is VERY VERY VERY OLD but I made it nevertheless. It also lets you change things like the UFO and flames when the sheep flame dives.

Thanks, anyway, for the tutorial! The first time I tried it, it worked.

I know another way to save it as exe. Right-click the esheep.exe file and click Copy. Paste it (CTRL+V) into the same folder. It will be named 'esheep20 - copy'. Rename that to something else. Then edit it with the hex editor and just press File> Save.

I can't change the color of the eyes :(
A.C.E. says: 6 years ago

RedTulip in reply to A.C.E.3 years ago
In the save as, type the name. After the name, type .exe.

Okay! I was just messing around with the Worms screenmate, and I wanted to make his main color blue. So i typed the reversed code for the skin into the box, then typed the reversed code for pure blue (FF 00 00)(Thats the reversed code) and replaced all then saved. When I opened it, THE WORM WAS TRANSPARENT!!! WOOHOO!!! It worked for me, and it just might work for you. Try it out!
RedTulip in reply to Wetwillie18003 years ago
It didn't work :(
RedTulip in reply to Wetwillie18003 years ago
Nice esheep's.
RedTulip says: 3 years ago
Does anyone get the "When-the-esheep-turns-it's-color-is-original" thingy? Cause I got it. So I used another program instead, it's called Hex Workshop. It's FREE, too!
RedTulip in reply to RedTulip3 years ago
I used the replace all button!
ecila says: 6 years ago

Cool esheep!

Could somebody upload a zip file of their sheep?

RedTulip says: 3 years ago
I made many esheep. I only got a picture of two. I use a different software now, because when my xvi32 esheeps turn,  they turn into the original colored esheep.

Cricket_Lover in reply to wizerd 7454 years ago

Cricket_Lover in reply to Cricket_Lover4 years ago

Lmao. Its fun to mess with their minds by scrolling up and down rapidly as they fall. xD *clickylickyclickyclickyclicky* AHHHH IT'S RAINING SHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!!!

Also, if you have two sheep on the screen, and one starts to run really fast. Grab the other and hold it in front of the running sheep. It will stop running and fly backwards. Now keep hitting the sheep. You can play tennis with it. I once did this back and forth for 40 seconds. The sheep was at the top of the screen. Also go to my site, mutantsrus.com. And download the Esheep Master Loader. It is a handy little tool I made. Version 5 allows you to remove and restore unwanted sheep.
