Do you want to learn how to mod/edit saves?

I'll teach you if i get enough replies :)

--edit--
Step #1

To mod saves, you'll need a hex editor which can be downloaded here

HxD - Freeware Hex Editor
Version: 1.7.7.0 (April 3, 2009)
OS: Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, or 7

Code:
`mh-nexus.de/en/downloads.php?product=HxD`

--edit 2--
Step #2

Step #3 (see image)

1. Press Ctrl + F.
2. Change datatype to integer number
3. Select (any bitwidth)
4. Select Big Endian (motorola SPARC,...)
5. Search for: 999999999

After clicking the OK button, you'll see this result.

Offset: C which is 0x0000000C
Length: 4 which is Int32
Hex: 3B9AC9FF which is 999999999
-

There is another offset with the same value.
Post the offset if you've found.

Simply, hexadecimal is a base 16 number system. We use a base 10 number system (decimal) usually, however, in computing, base 16 is a lot more useful. Hexadecimal numbers usually are preceded with "0x" to avoid confusion - eg 0x10 is the number 16. There are various other ways of representing hex numbers, eg 10h or 1016, but I'll use the 0x notation.
So how does a base 16 number system work?
In our base 10 number system, we have the digits 0 to 9. Once wee get past 9, wee need to start using two digits to represent the number. That is, at 10, wee start using two digits to represent numbers. For a base 16 number system like hexadecimal, we only start using two "digits" to represent the number after 15. So how do we represent the numbers 10 to 15 as single "digits"? We use letters.
Here's a short table, showing the conversion between hexadecimal and decimal:

Code:
```Hex        Dec
0x00        0
0x01        1
0x02        2
0x03        3
0x04        4
0x05        5
0x06        6
0x07        7
0x08        8
0x09        9
0x0A       10
0x0B       11
0x0C       12
0x0D       13
0x0E       14
0x0F       15
-
0x10       16
0x11       17
0x12       18
0x13       19
0x14       20
0x15       21
0x16       22
0x17       23
0x18       24
0x19       25
0x1A       26
0x1B       27
0x1C       28
0x1D       29
0x1E       30
0x1F       31
-
0x20       32
-
0x30       48
-
0x40       64
-
0x50       80
-
0x60       96
-
0x70       112
-
0x80       128
-
0x90       144
-
0xA0       160
-
0xB0       176
-
0xC0       192
-
0xD0       208
-
0xE0       224
-
0xF0       240```

Step #4

Character: Emil.

P.attack: 6666
P.Def: 5458
A.Attack: 7777
A.Def: 5457
Dex: 9778
Luck: 6878

Find the offset of emil's stats, and post them like this - see example below.

P.attack: 0x00000???
P.Def: 0x00000???
A.Attack: 0x00000???
A.Def: 0x00000???
Dex: 0x00000???
Luck: 0x00000???

P.attack: 0x00000B74
P.Def: 0x00000B76
A.Attack: 0x00000B78
A.Def: 0x00000B7A
Dex: 0x00000B7C
Luck: 0x00000B7E

Step #5

Some things like Health points (HP) aren't easy to find or aren't easy to mod.
If you don't edit the proper offsets correctly, it will reset in the game or damage/corrupt your save.

Here is an example;

Character: Emil.
HP: 9999/9999

This game has 4 offsets of Emil's HP.
An experienced modder wouldn't search for 9999, instead he would search for hex value: 270F (converts to 9999 in decimal)

Some hex editors like hex workshop has a base converter.
You can convert hex to decimal or decimal to hex.
You can also convert decimal to hex with google search - see example below;

Code:
`9999 in hex =`

Code:
```9999 =
0x270F```
-

Most of the time when searching for a value like '270F', 10 or more instances of '270F' will be found.
In this save, you will find 43 instances of '270F'.

Can you find 4 of Emil's HP offsets?
