Thank you all for the great advice.  I tested this as soon as I got done working today and an offset 5855070 does indeed work.  Even better, I know how to find the offset on my own now to make more mods if I need to, insted of just knowing the answer to this one question.  Thanks to the information you guys offered.  Appreciate all of you taking the time to "teach me to fish" instead of just feeding me one.  Small victories.

Here is the Toolboks custom mod which appears to work, if anyone who was asking still wants it.  I know there was several on the Second Wave mod page asking for it.

Spoiler

hey guys i am at offset 5855070. but the peace of code does not match the code in the description. can somebody please tell me the new offset.

Hello everyone

I couldn't successfully install this mod,and I couldn't find where the hex code is.

Here's what upkpatcher tell me:
 

Package file: XComGame.upk
Full path: D:\Steam\SteamApps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XEW\XComGame\CookedPCConsole\XComGame.upk
Error attempting to set relative offset while base offset is not set!
Restoring from backup in F:\Other\Mod\Other\XCOM\PatcherGUI v 1_3-448-1-3\PatcherGUI\Backup\1415671288
XComGame.upk restored from backup dir
XComGame.upk.uncompressed_size restored from backup dir
Restoring from backup completed successfully

Is there any solution?

Sorry for updating this old thread but it needed a refresh for those interested in simply unlocking all XCOM:EU & XCOM:EW Second Wave options & looking for a comprehensive summary of the steps involved.
This write-up is targeting those new to PC gaming but familiar with technical command-line tools/hex editing/etc... looking for a streamlined description.  Hopefully this write-up helps save you some time.
Those wanting further details/background can refer to the reference links provided in parenthesis.  thx!
 
I followed these steps & verified on 3/11/2021 that all Second Wave options were available for XCOM:EU & XCOM:EW.
Note:  The XCOM:EU Search: hex modlet required updating from what was posted originally by Amineri. 
 
Windows 10 Setup
Disable Controlled folder access under Ransomware protection.  This keeps Windows security from interfering every time XCom starts up.
 
1.  Don't use Steam default games install location.  Otherwise Windows security will interfere.  C:\Games\Steam was used for this write-up.
2.  Install XCOM:EU & XCOM:EW.  Start both games twice to game menu after doing Local Files->Verify integrity of game files.  This establishes a known-good baseline & creates the launch logs.
3.  Review XCOM:EU & XCOM:EW launch logs for DNS lookup info.  Edit C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts to bypass XCOM:EU & XCOM:EW DNS lookups to 127.0.0.1.
    XCOM:EU launch.log example location:  C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Unknown\XComGame\Logs\Launch.log
    XCOM:EW launch.log example location:  C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Within\XComGame\Logs\Launch.log
4.  Change XCOM:EU Update policy to "Only update this game when I launch it" via Library->Properties->Updates.
 
Tool Setup
1.  Download/install Unreal Package Decompressor.  (https://www.gildor.org/downloads)
2.  Download/install HxD.  (https://www.google.com/, search for "HxD download")
 
XCOM:EU Hash-checking Disable  (http://wiki.tesnexus..._-_XCOM:EU_2012, reference:  How to enable UPK changes in XCOM:EU)
Use HxD to modify C:Games\Steam\steamapps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\Binaries\Win32\XComGame.exe to disable .upk hash-checking for XComGame.upk & XComStrategyGame.upk.
 
Manual modify process to enable all Second Wave options (https://forums.nexus...2#entry10111522)
1.  Use decompress to unpack respective XComGame.upk file(s).  Copy from unpacked sub-directory over compressed versions.
2.  Use HxD to modify respective uncompressed XComGame.upk file(s) using respective Search: & Replace: hex modlets below.
    XCOM:EU example location:  C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XComGame\CookedPCConsole
    XCOM:EW example location:  C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XEW\XComGame\CookedPCConsole

For Android XCOM EW ver. 1.7:

Before:

07 B4 00 81 19 19 2E 5F 6D 00 00 19 12 20 16 FE FF FF 0A 00 31 F9 FF FF 00 1C 9A FB FF FF 16 0A 00 30 F9 FF FF 00 1B 8C 3C 00 00 00 00 00 00 16 09 00 BB 6C 00 00 00 01 BB 6C 00 00 15 00 CF 6D 00 00 00 1B ED 46 00 00 00 00 00 00 38 3D 00 56 1D 00 00 16 16 06 7F 03

After:

0B 0B 0B 81 19 19 2E 5F 6D 00 00 19 12 20 16 FE FF FF 0A 00 31 F9 FF FF 00 1C 9A FB FF FF 16 0A 00 30 F9 FF FF 00 1B 8C 3C 00 00 00 00 00 00 16 09 00 BB 6C 00 00 00 01 BB 6C 00 00 15 00 CF 6D 00 00 00 1B ED 46 00 00 00 00 00 00 38 3D 00 56 1D 00 00 16 16 0B 0B 0B

Please pay attention to the mobile version of the game. I'm not a programmer, but I've already made some changes to the game.
