    Did you try to hack the save game?
    It should not be that hard, because i did that on other games. If you know a little hex it should be easy.

    you can try to save at the same place with different money and than compare the two files for differences.
    i don't know the game your playing but the information for money could be like: 00000644 (tryed 4 bytes?)
    but if you don't even find a 644 it could also be stored in a different way.
    Well i can only tell for sure if i would have the sav file and the game.
    Have you tried AR codes yet?

    eh, so i managed to change the data size to 32bit and i got my money from 1604 to 3879

    workshop = win, i = fail lol

    however i need way more money than this, and now i cant get the data size over 4 chars, i want 999999 obviously....how do i get there? changing the data type again to 64 bit doesnt offer me a bigger hex value

    there are no ar ds codes...which is why im in this situation lol

    Bytes are stored in Little Endian order, which means that a value of 0644 would be stored as 4406 in the save file if you search using the "Hex Values" option.

    "270F" --> F27 --> 3879
    "0F27" --> 270F --> 9999
