    So with Octopath out early I tried to edit money in my savegame. Turns out it works like in any other Square game on 3DS before (Bravely Second was the same for example)
    • note down your amount of money. In my example, it was 4532.
    • Save and backup the save with Checkpoint
    • Find the savegame in the backed up folder (it's called KSSaveData0 for autosave, KSSaveData1 for manual save slot 1 and so on)
    • Open said file in a hex editor
    • use a decimal to hex converter like this one to convert your amount of money into Hex (4532 equals 11 B4, which is also the same as 00 11 B4)
    • Invert the sequence of your hex value (00 11 B4 becomes B4 11 00)
    • Search for that hex value in your savegame.
    • To get 9,999,999 money (which is the ingame limit of maximum money), replace your value (in my case B4 11 00) with 7F 96 98 (this is the inverted hex value for 9,999,999)
    • Save the file, restore savegame with Checkpoint, enjoy
    You can also use higher values (FF FF FF will give you 16,7 million) but the game will default back to 9,999,999 on the first occasion of spending or acquiring money.

    Nice, any chance you can share your save file for analysing for further save edit?

    edit: btw, in the demo the money limit is 9,999,999

    Thanks for the information. I tried both now. FF FF FF shows ingame money correctly as 16,777,215, but if you buy or sell anything, it reverts back to 9,999,999. So that actually is the limit. Will edit OP with said value.

    Of what? The process itself is very straightforward and, in my opinion, well explained. If you are able to run homebrew, backup your save and transfer it to your PC, then you should be also computer literate enough to open a file with a hex editor and replace six digits. :D

    0c 81 means 3201 money?
    Did you invert it? You need to search for 81 0c. Also, did you open the right file? You gave me the idea that I mentioned something wrong in the first post. I wrote KSSaveData0 is first save slot. But I just now remember that despite me saving only in one slot, I get two save files and I have the idea why - first file KSSaveData0 is probably autosave and not save slot 1. So actually KSSaveData1 should be your first manual save file. Open that.

    And you're sure you're inverting the values, and also search the hex values and not the text strings, right? Should be an option in your hex editor to change for what to search.

    if it's only in there once, that should be it. Set your cursor to 95 and type in 7F 96 98, save, restore, game on
    I mean of course it could happen that your money value is for some reason twice in the file - then one of it is not money but something else. In that case spend some more money and try again.

    it's already been discussed in the octopatch time limit thread :) but nice to have it's own topic for new people trying to find the info.

    not to mention the thread also had JSON file to enable editing your save with EdiZon

    Completely missed that. Anything else this edizon file could do? Maybe it gets adapted for full game
