    [Modding] Wanna learn how to mod games?

    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

    Download: SAVEDATA.rar, and open in HXD.


    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.


    --Edit 3--

    What is Hexadecimal?

    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

    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



    --Edit 4--
    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;

    Ask google:

    Code:
    9999 in hex =
    Google will answer:

    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?
