    Do some of the 360 game save editors work as well on their PC?

    Hey devs,



    Just a curious question do some of the 360 games save editors out there would work as well on their PC version of the same title?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer my question :)

    Basically this. The 360 tends to prefer the big endian byte order, while the PC has almost always used the little endian byte order. So basically it depends on if the 360 version of a game uses big endian or little endian. The 360 versions of Oblivion and Assassin's Creed, for instance, both use little endian, so any editor that will work on the 360 versions will also work on the PC versions and vice versa. The 360 version of Sonic Adventure, however, uses big endian, so an editor won't be compatible between 360 and PC versions of the game.

    I know there's no real way for the average user to tell which byte order a game uses at a glance. So as Matt said, as far as editors go, the developer will usually say so. I'm just explaining WHY some editors work for PC versions and some don't.

    That's right. In fact, that's actually what little endian means. When using big endian a number might be 12 34 56 78, but with little endian it would be 78 56 34 12. It's the exact same number, just represented by a different byte order.
