    Hey there! I'm Seb. I will try to modify values in the Nintendogs +Cats game. I will also provide informations between the games so you will be smarter when you will leave. :)

    [Edit] : I will accept any suggestions since I am not really skilled yet but I believe in experienced peoples.
    [Edit2] : SaveGame editor software MIGHT be an option if everything goes well. Do not take this as a final decision.

    For now I am looking for:

    Python programmers (initial coding language)
    Or/And
    Javascript programmers
    And
    C/C++ knowledge with one demonstration of what you can do.

    1x Hex editing skilled person
    Up to 5 testers

    It's time to break the impossible!

    You will be credited ! :)

    I want to be able to provide people a SaveGame editor. They asked it so much.

    I do not have any coding skills yet (I'm learning Python right now) but I am able to find some values/datas and figure out what they are.

    Also, I will credit them people who will have helped.

    That's not
    Enough knowledge to create something like this, no one is going to help somebody who rarely knows what to do...

    That's why you need to start small not be creating save editors and asking people to do it

    Okay. Yeah... I meant to make one if everything works. I didnt claimed I was doing it as a final decision.

    Any reason for python? I know Java really well but have never experimented with python.

    It looks to be powerful and modular. Also we could create our scripts there. If you have anys uggestions make them i will consider them as important.

    I could contribute if it was written in Java, but likely wouldn't be able to do more than be a tester if it would be in Python. If you want an example of my work: https://github.com/shadowninja108/SDHelper

    Alright, you seem to be able to code with Java so i accept you. You can code in java, maybe some people will convert your javascript into the python later. Hope so...

    Why do you need the conversion?

    I feel that you should start presenting some of your research to the community. start finding the offsets and identifying values in the save. once you bring some info back to the community you will get the attention of more developers.

    I don't know how the game works but from what I gathered from my quick google search. some of the things that look editable for Dogs +cats is the currency and if you find the flags you can unlock other dogs/cats. The game unlocks one each day that you play. so if you play the game for 31 one days you should unlock the last pet.

    Okay so I've notixed that in the SysSave.dat, the Dog's name, Owner's name and Trick's name (the name you gave them) are stored here.

    Here is a very drafty example :
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00 G B A T e m p
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00 M e l i o
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00
    00 00 00 00 00 S i t D o
    00 00 00 00 00 w n

    Again, this is not accurate. I will make it better later today with correct tables and values.

    [Edit]: I found a value similiar to what is used in scalig when i was lookig aroubd the dog values. Im going to make different test sequences to verify and validate this possible information. The tag "[Confirmed]" will appear in thia post when the results will be positive. For now it is in a neutral position.

    The reason why is because I believe it couls be more efficient to have one unique coding language rather than mizig multiple one togheter. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    What other programming languages will be used? You only specified 1 programmer.
