    Finding Keys in Hex Editor

    Do game makers hide or encrypt values in the gamesaves?



    I am trying to edit a gamesave of C&C: Kane's Wrath. I have a skirmish I started and saved at a point where I know I had 8500 resources. When I extract the gamesave file with Modio and open it in a hex editor, I cannot find "8500" anywhere in the file, in text or hex.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this not doable?

    Did you convert 8500 to hex? To Decimal ? Reverse it? Are you sure its not in the gpd

    I'm a total newb at gamesaves. What do you mean by GPD. Woudn't searching "8500" be the decimal search?

    Open calculator on you windows pc
    Select view Programmer
    Select dec and put in 8500 and click on hex you should get 0x2134
    Now search for 2134

    Thanks for the help pureIso, I'll try every one of the 2134's i've found one at a time.

    May take a while, but where's the fun in easy.

    EDIT: Tried all 2134's and still no joy. I even tried saving another game and searching for the resources from it. Backwards does nothing either.
