    Hey Guys!

    I've got a question to all of u! My Problem is that I want to hack my Harvest Moon. I want to do some kind of cheats on it. For example: I want to make pumkinseeds cheaper when u buy them and pumpkins more expensiv when I sell them. Is this possible? Has anyone here ever done something like that? How do I start? Extract main.dol and search with HexEditor for some offsets? I am noob on hacking games, so I hope that u can tell me some tipps or tricks. And sorry if my english is bad. [​IMG] I am an Austrian.

    Big thanks for help.

    Greetings

    Currently you need to open up the iso with Trucha signer and look for the values in the files yourself.

    Becurse no cheating devieces like action replay is here jet.

    mail.dol is just the "main" file

    All the other values could be EVERYWHERE in the iso.
    Good luck finding them.

    skip the iso, focus on hacking savegames. and there IS an action replay on the gamecube, so for gamecube games you could use that ;p

    Yeah. But in Europe Harvest Moon: MM is on Wii and not on GC. [​IMG]

    And hacking Savegames isn't possible i thought, because there is no way to sign them. Or are my informations wrong? Please say they are wrong and tell me a programm i can sign them with. [​IMG]

    if hacking savegames wasn't possible then the Zelda exploit would not be possible [​IMG]

    The Wii version is exactly the same as the GC version , its just that you can only play as the boy in the Wii version...

    I gave up trying to hack the Wii save so i just went back to playing the GC version which is easy to cheat on [​IMG] , so my advice would be to just play the GC version
