I'm using MinHook to hook a static function with the following signature:

float __usercall RadarManager::Add_Blip@<xmm0>(int position@<ecx>, int shape@<edx>, int colorId, float intensity@<xmm3>, bool isBracket, bool isSmall)

I have confirmed that the register/stack usage is correct using IDA. I also have confirmed that I got the right address using Visual Studio to debug my code. It first goes to the trampoline generated by MinHook, executes the first few opcodes and then jumps to the original function skipping the bytes that were overwritten.

I made my hook function completely empty, but the program still crashes on some other arbitrary address.

My hook function is as follows:

float __declspec(naked) radarAddBlip(const Vector3 &position, int shape, int colorId, float intensity, bool isBracket, bool isSmall)
        call originalRadarManager_Add_Blip;

Opcodes that are copied to the trampoline (before the jmp)

.text : 1181F4C0                 push    ebp
.text : 1181F4C1                 mov     ebp, esp
.text : 1181F4C3                 and     esp, 0FFFFFFF8h

I've tried changing calling conventions, to making it __declspec(naked) and directly calling it and even manually editing the registry, but to no avail. I'm at the end of my rope and I can't even get it to work when it doesn't even do anything.

To summarize my question: How can I successfully call the original function through my hook function and doing something before calling the original? I'm not required to use MinHook, but so far it has been doing a good job.

  • Have you tried using a debugger on the crash? (Ollydbg, x64dbg etc.) Might reveal some relevent details as to why. Maybe the compiler isn't calling it correctly (possibly because of a prologue on the hook function). I could be on the wrong track though, I'm on my mobile.

  • I will post the information at the crash location asap. I forgot to turn on teamviewer on the PC I'm doing this at, so I can't take a look at it right now.

  • @Samson could it be that it uses __vectorcall? I have never used this calling convention before and only just found out about its existence. But it seems that 'intensity' would then be passed on xmm0? I'm also not sure if I can use this convention. My environment must be using the visual studio 2012 xp build tools.

    You have to pass a3, a5 and a6 on the stack, you will have to re-push them before the call to the original function. Commented Nov 6, 2017 at 23:00
