5.1 How can i get more lives in my games: A Example:
The game wich i use for this Example is is "Hexplore " from OCEAN/Infogrames.
First of all i play and lost a few Powders. Now i notice the Number of the Powder and save the current game. At the Moment there are 10 Powders available.
Now i throw away some more Poweders, notice that i now had 7 and save the game again as a secound savegame. Now i start the Hex-Wizard and change into the directory of the game. Now look for the Savegames. In this case SAVE 2 files are available. Once the file game0.sav and to second the file game1.sav.
These two files are now opened.
Now in the menu TOOLS - > call Compare. Now select both files in the CORRECT order, (the correct order is VERY important)
(thus like it were stored). Select in addition " search for Fvalue1 and Fvalue2 " (thus look for values) and input the values in the correct order: 10 and 7.
Now click on OK ans the Hex-Wizards search for the values. and " hopefully " stops at the right place. In this case the address 232768h is called as the right place.
Now I modify the value from 07hex to 90hex (this corresponds to a decimal value of 144) in the file game1.sav. Now save the game and start your game again.
Load the modifyed savegame and... It works! Now i have 144 Powders.
