    I suggest you start with some games that don't have any security on their gamesaves. As the values will be easier to find and edit. If you take a little trip to the programming section. You will find some sample source codes that show you how PackageIO is used. That's a great library when you want to start to get into save edititors.

    @jt dunn, you should also look at implementing backup functions into your editors when you get started. There is sample source in the programming section I think. Always worth looking at. Very handy feature too.

    unless you can crack the encryption on the saves i wouldnt bother when it came to crc's and others i just gave up i think theres a tut on this site from mojobojo or pureiso about encryption in saves (on here too theres algorithm tool might help you) if i was you i would start with some old games to get the hang of it.

    isolib and tuts
    hope this helps

    Sephiroth posted a wonderful video tutorial that got me started. I think the account that made the video was banned though, so the video doesn't exist anymore (very sadly, as it was a great one that explained what everything that you were doing meant instead of just telling you what to type). Most other video tutorials either use text boxes to talk to the viewer (a personal pet peeve that I can never seem to get past) and play really stupid music. The only other complete youtube tutorial I could find where the guy talks is one I would advise you not to watch unless you want to be more confused than you were (the guy keeps stumbling and messing up yet he continues with his shoot instead of just starting over) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=u0CHQTgLgbw.

    The best thing you can do is look at those sample sources that Ren mentioned. If you have Teamviewer and Skype (and a microphone preferably), I wouldn't mind helping you learn what the little lines of code mean, which will be easier to explain if you already have some experience with VB (which you do).
