    basically this is what I got


    Code:
    ; Tales Of Graces f
    ; BLUS30903
    ;From Game Genie For PS3
     
    :BLUS30903-SYSDATA\TOGSYS.BIN
     
    :BLUS30903-APPDATA*\TOGAPP.BIN
     
    [Max Amount Of Times Cleared]
    00000001 000000FF
     
    [Enable Chaos Mode]
    00000003 00000001
     
    [Max Money]
    200076D4 0098967F
     
    [Max Eleth Mixer Energy]
    2000ABF8 270E270E
     
    [Max Eleth Mixer Slots]
    0000AC1C 00000010
     
    [Mastery Tonic G]
    0000A65F 00000001
    Question 1:
    how do I got about finding WHERE these codes are in the hex file?

    for example, max money, in the patch editor i use from PS3 BruteForce Save Data, I can double click the 0098967F part and it'll take me in random parts of the hex editor, but that just depends where my scroll bar is at, so its not taking me to the right one lol. And double clicking the first part says not found.

    Basically I want to alter Mastery Tonic G to give me 99 instead of 1, because you can get 99 [by altering the save file which that code is available]...but its effing hard because you can't buy it anywhere (as far as I'm aware) so my stupid eleth mixer sometimes creates a tonic but it takes ages, and I still have a lot of unlearned titles (skills).


    And I know if I alter an item because as you get more items the slot changes for said item, and so in the hex edit for the save file it won't be in the same place it was before...but if I can at least figure this part out, I may be able to figure that part out later on.


    sooo any help is great help, thank you.

    looks like the same as NDS codebreaker codes.

    Format:
    (32 Bit)
    2YXXXXXX ZZZZZZZZ

    (16 Bit)
    1YXXXXXX ZZZZZZZZ

    (8 Bit)
    0YXXXXXX ZZZZZZZZ


    where the first number shows the length of the value.
    Y usually specifies, Ram, Save, ect.
    X is the address in the save file
    Z is the value of the address.

    What you want is a program called "Bruteforce Savedata" I'm not entirely sure you'll need that list of codes as this program does all the work for you and downloads codes for most any ps3 game available.

    I actually do use BFSD, these codes are from it (granted they're originally from Game Genie), however, there are certain things i'd like to add to it, but i just don't know how to figure it out, the best lead i got so far is from SomeoneWhoDied .

    I thought if i could work backwards, figure out where those codes are taking effect in the hex patter, I may be able to start making my own codes.


    But eventually, I got frustrated and decided to just beat the game without mastering everything lol.

    thanks!
