    I'd also like people to share how they've been editing saves. I managed to pull my save, but all I get is a mess of crap.

    No plain text in the file and when I search values I get nothing via Hex or Integer search in HxD.

    Some education would be nice, thanks.

    That's because they're encrypted. First step would be to decrypt

    According to all the tutorials, if you use Henkaku to pull the data it's already decrypted. Did I miss something?

    Save data? I'll admit I don't know that much about it, nor have I tried it yet, but I can't imagine that to be true.

    Someone will probably clarify soon though :)

    You access the game's save data AS the game, so it's already decrypted for the game's use.

    Tutorial: http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=116&t=46339

    Soak it all up and let me know what you think.

    Cool that was informative, and while he doesnt explicitly says that the save is decrypted (he only mentions that the games are), it certainly seems like he implies that.

    So let's wait and see what'll come out of this. I'm currently trying to host the exploit on my server (without success..) .. Once I figure that out, I have a save file in mind I can see if it's encrypted or not.

    Don't just watch the tutorial, read the guide from Wololo that explicitly states that the data is decrypted.

    I tried another game and I can see my character's name in the data, so I guess the saves are just complex and I'm trash at hex editing.

    Hopefully someone more experienced will hit the thread.

    Decrypt the game and search for the values using cheat engine. The stats in Totori are a bitch to find, I've only managed to find Melvia's defense stat at this point. They're in there somewhere though.

    Can you elaborate on this?

    Decrypt the game and search the files with CE?

    How can you use CE on non-PC games?

    I've managed to edit P4G and FFX HD (although I had to fix the checksum on FF otherwise the save corrupted). Right now I'm trying to edit my project diva f/f2nd saves but I can't find any of the values, and importing publicly available ps3 saves (same file, slightly larger size) after I have decrypted them fails to load the save. I had hoped since they look so similar in hxd once decrypted that it might have worked.

    It seems that some games, although decrypted, might have ways of preventing easy save edits (checksums, x4 values etc). Anyone else had trouble with a save yet? I've only tried basic values so far (changing money, characters hp and mp).

    Use the Open File function and search for the values like you would any other game. I was able to cheat out max money on Estival Versus and Akiba's Trip 2 by using CE. Makes finding hex values leagues easier.


    IIRC I read a post in /hbg/ that stated that the values in F/2nd were reversed. So if you have 999 cash and that converts to > 5959 in hex you'd
    reverse that and search 9595 in HxD or whatever you use.

    Just to be clear here:

    Your first step is to decrypt, you mean just pull the "decrypted" save and open with CE?

    I'm also going to try searching backward.

    Yeah that's the case with all games I believe (at least everything I've edited on the 3ds was that way too). I use Cheat engine to get my hex, then in HxD I flip the bytes, that's how I found values in P4G and FFX HD.
    Unfortunately there seems to be something else hiding the f/2nd values (I tried x2 x4 and x8 as well but got nothing) :(

    Gonna try f/2nd a few more times and see if I can get any results.

    Btw I'll go back through my files later and post up some offsets.

    Yeah. Just dump the files from savedata0: and open them up in CE and have at it.
    >edit: Getting nothing on Grand Kingdom, must be more encryption
    Yeah, I'm thinking that some games may have an extra layer of encryption or something. I was unable to find Freedom War's money offset myself.

    It looks like maybe it's game with decent online elements that have the added protection, which would make sense. Especially when considering that some single player games are just fancy ports of ps2 titles so they have the same basic decrypted save structure.

    I'd like to test more but my vita seems to be going crazy, I play from cartridge a lot but trying to launch a digital game crashes my vita and the power menu also freezes. Hopefully I'm not totally screwed.
