    a.) all of that can be easily solved with a proper dump of the item names as correspond to the ID numbers. Go ahead and get those ready, if you can, and when you hit your 10 posts you should be able to PM them directly when things settle down on APM's end.

    b.) Again, easily settled by a list of descriptions to pair with each value. Keep in mind IDs will be 1 less than their in-game type listing (IE: hair 14 will show up as ID 13 in the editor).

    c.) this one is not so easy. We'd need a detailed reference of exactly what quest is represented by what bit in the quest data. I've already looked into it and that'd mean finding exactly what quest is what in over 640 options - not including DLC and the upcoming G-rank quests in MHXX/whatever the international release gets named (for reference, MH4U has about 451 INCLUDING its G-rank missions and even those were never tied down as far as what quest corresponds to what bit) - all of which progress non-linearly due to branching quest lines, etc.

    It's also more complex int that there are "new" or "seen" flags that mark when a quest has appeared/been attempted. Setting one flag without the other makes even completed quests not show up - quest rotation or not. This is why I jsut completed all the non-DLC quests and uploaded a 100% complete blank save to avoid the 'bugs' resulting from this effect in the quest unlocker.


    Another option is using FTPD/FTBrony (homebrew apps for using FTP to access the SD card without ejecting it or even exiting homebrew) to send your exported save over wifi via FTP to your PC. I've mainly used this method and have had no problems.

    Is there any way to get rid of your awards in the guild card editor? I foolishly used the "unlock all awards" function in the editor. Now if anyone looks at my guild card they see the awards for arenas and monster size and know somethings up :(

    The first post, under "Useful stuff"
    most people dont look at guild cards, from my experience. Whats more, if you dont send it, they dont see it.
    The easiest solution will be restore the unedited system_backup form when you edited the save (if you still have it). If that's not an option, then send me your save (via PM) and I can edit the monster sizes to match the awards (you're on your own for the arenas, but they're not particularly hard. Just finish within 10 minutes and you'll get A rank [S rank not required for awards, but does give some nice items])

    Hey Isharigan,

    I wanted to ask, are completed DLC quest tied to the save file just like in game quests? If I load another save file then I restore my own save will the completed DLC quest remain completed or will I have to do the quest again for it to have a tick on it?

    I dont see why it wouldn't be tied to the save. in MH4U some DLC quests wouldn't show as completed for me (prolly bc I didn't host them) but they definitely show as completed in MHGen (not that it matters since the item is what unlocks the crafting of the armors, weapons, etc.)

    I just got this because I wanted to finetune my felynes and while at it make one of each class. The thing is, I'm trying to make a bomber felyne and no matter what I do it says that I'm using invalid/dlc learned actions but I've checked with bomber felynes I haven't edited and even those say that it's not valid, I think it only happens with bombers, why? Sorry if this has been asked before, checking 182 pages is a daunting task.

    Edit: I am checking with hired cats, not with Samus or other DLC bombers.

    Different matter.
    On 4U's editor you could edit weapons and armors to a certain degree, both relics and crafted. Can't you edit them anymore? Can you only change what item it is, its level and decorations?

    the invalid skill is prolly bc it has a learned skill (taught via dojo). there should be item-by item feedback above that message that tells you what skills are being checked.

    and as for weapon editing: Relics dont exist this game and Kinsect types/stats haven't been implemented yet. the only thing you can edit is the type, ID number, and level (dont create insect glaives from scratch. they wont get a kinsect. Changing one galive into another galive will retain the kinsect of the first glaive.

    I'm not sure about item-by-item, I'm checking it with PalicoCheckTool v0.06. I'm gonna attach a pic and the .catz, I have never used the felyne or teached it anything.

    The cat itself:

    I've tried attaching them to the post but I can't seem to be able to upload any file.


    Shame about the weapons, those were fun :toot:

    the save is in the ExtData, when you make a backup of the save (in the ExtData option), you'll get two files: System and System_backup. your save is the "System" file, and to re-inject it when it's edited, you have to delete the "System_backup" one.

    Is there source code for this?

    Another quick question: Where is the quest progress kept in the save file?

    iirc it's stored in a bit field from character save offset 0x014BE to 0x014E7

    Here's the link to svanheulen's wiki where I get most of my offsets from https://github.com/svanheulen/mhff/wiki/MHX-system-Format

    I'll add it to the front page. Looks like I didn't add it when I made this thread.

    As for the source code, I can post it if you want, but all it does is toggle all the bits to complete

    It looks like a false positive and the cat should be perfectly OK, looking at the actions and code. It's most likely because of an extra NULL added there for some reason which isn't in the actual file.

    Gambia, The
    Its pretty cool, but i have a serious question.

    I got myself the blank Character file, but how the hell do i import this one?

    I allready have legit HR 999 Characters on MH4U and 3U and i have a HR 629 character on MHGEN.

    So any Tutorials or reviews out there wich show me how to do this?
    Never heared of a Character Exporter/Importer
    would be nice ^^

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    When I use the complete character save in the useful stuff section, I customized the guild card so it can look like my regular one I had before, but for some reason even though it says it's HR 263 I can't seem to unlock anymore missions, the highest HR I can go is HR 7. I tried using the HR unlocker in the useful section but it doesn't seem to have fixed. Any way I can fix this? I'm trying to play online with my friends so it's hard not being able to set up missions for us when I can't access them :(
