    Download link: Here or the attached file at the bottom of this post
    Updated: 29/07/2016, Version 0.1

    The editor was only tested on the full US version, I do not know if it'll work with other regions or the demo. Currently should be able to edit general stuffs, edit characters and your inventory.
    Make a backup of your save file if you do not want to risk breaking your game. This editor is still an experimental editor, not a fully tested editor.
    If you guys find any bugs with the editor, please report them to me.

    Changelog

    FAQs, probably.

    Note: Probably frowned upon by the community, but I managed to crash the game through editing the save file, not sure if it's a viable exploit or anything though. PM me if anyone's interested in it.

    I did add both of those previously but the problem with those is, once you change classes, the skills stays the same as the first class you picked (when you made the character). And for character change, the game crashes on start for some reason.

    Good to note: I used cheats before this program to give my team arbitrarily high XP and SP so they would go straight to level 99, but that results in an unhandled error "value must be between minimum and maximum" any time I try to load the character editor. Not a normal usage, so I don't know if you need to bother fixing it, but still worth knowing.

    Ahh I see, I wasn't sure what the actual maximum EXP/SP was but they seem to be cap up to a certain point.
    I tried changing the maximum value, try the new editor.

    Yes the .bak file is the backup of your save file in case anything bad happens after editing.

    Any chance of this working with Gateway saves in the future? I just tried it and it tells me it's an invalid save.

    I might actually have to re-do the editor because of this to be honest, but I'm not sure when I can be done with it.
    I'm not sure how Gateway saves work since I've never had one, if you send me a copy of the save maybe I can look into it.

    Does this also work for the demo, yes? I have to try the demo first to see if this game is worth having.
    Kinda similar to Etrian Odyssey though, which I'm a fan of.

    Not entirely sure how the save structure is for the demo but I doubt this save editor will work for it.

    Also I'm not sure when I can finish the save editor since it's rather busy at work for me, I might be free to do it by the end of this week though, sorry.

    It's ok even if you haven't finished the save editor yet, just let me know the offsets for those features/attributes such as skill points, weapon slots, money, etc.
    I even tried hacking my Etrian Odyssey Untold games weeks before even without any save editors available for those yet, I just used the good 'ole HxD hex editor to edit things like skill points & money hehe :P

    UPDATE: Never mind, I've found it ^_^ ... https://gbatemp.net/threads/7th-dragon-iii-code-vfd-cheats.425961/

    Here's the offsets I used to make this editor, except these offsets only point to the first character but all the character's structure are essentially the same so you can use them regardless.

    But then again this is for the full game, not sure how it is for the demo. Pretty sure the AZ and DZ are easy to find though, if they are in the demo that is..



    Also, I updated the save editor and revamped the item editor, need people to test it though cause I didn't really have the time to test it in-game.
