    Does anyone have any experience in hacking Wii .dat save files ??

    I am trying to edit the Harvest Moon Magical Melody save file using a hex editor but i am running into problems....

    I have used hex editors quite a lot to find and edit values but this has got me a bit stumped , i am trying to manually edit the amount of money i have, i have changed my money in game 3 times and i have all 3 saves on my pc but the problem is, i cant seem to locate the areas i have to edit..

    I have converted the decimal values to hex values but they dont seem right :

    500 money = 1F4h
    200 money = C8h
    581 money = 245h

    I cant search for 1F4 or 245 as they need to be in pairs and if i just search for C8 i am going to be there all year trying to find the right one..

    Any have any suggestions on the best way to edit a save file ??

    Thanks in advance

    Wii saves are encrypted when copied to the SD card, so I doubt you can actually find and/or edit anything there...

    For now there isn't much if anything at all, but later there will be when there is more stuff will come out.

    I have a set of files from a data.bin save file, but not in the bin file (they are fully decrypted and in a .rar file that can be extracted). They've got names like ADVSV0.BIN, COLLECT.VFF, FILELIST.DAT, and BANNER.BIN. I need to encrypt these into a single data.bin file so I can use them on my emulator to play my backup SSBB with 100% unlocked.
