So, this is basically my favorite game on the vita!

I made this save editor today.

I have only worked on the save from the 1.05 patch, no I don't expect this to work with lower versions, and no plans of adding support for them.

(It's in C#, I have never used that before, I'll put the source up on github later when it is cleaner and updated a bit more, don't worry.)
Windows only, never thought I would do this, sorry!

I want to add inventory/storage editing.
I can already do simple stuff, like changing amounts, good for the dlc exp boosts :)
(I will see if I can inject the dlc exp boosts to the save without needing to buy them)
We can do cool stuff like having 255 scapedolls (I guess more, it's 16bit), instead of the normal max of 5.
When I set scapedolls to FFFF, it didn't get used upon death, so that wasn't good.
But stuff like monomates, if you set to FFFF, you can still use them (and the value won't even go down to FFFE)

If anyone can have a look at items, how they are stored in the save, please share :)
I think items are stored in 16 bytes, but I might be wrong.
I assumed monomates, dimates, trimates would be together in memory, but no they are spread out... strange.

I can edit stuff like gran arts/technique levels, but I will add this stuff to the editor later.

Any bugs etc, please tell me.

BACK UP YOUR SAVE!

haha let me know how it works! or any suggestions/requests.
it's a shame it's jpn only, the game should get more attention. but now that it's possible to translate it, we will see.
the game isn't perfect, i still prefer pso on gc, and i don't like crafting items, but yeah it's very good :D

i edit my gran to 999999, my level to 191 and whatever scape dolls is to 255 i think

what does scape dolls do anyway?
they revive you when you die.
you can only have 5 on your person :) but if we edit the save we force more in.

nice the tool works, i didn't really test it :rofl2:

decrypted, yes of course! :)

and i am making a atelier meruru save editor at the moment, when finished i will continue with this.
only because, for meruru, i can make it without the vita, but for this game, i need the vita to test. (i don't own meruru)

Awesome! Maybe you could work with aida at pso2 Reddit and help pinpoint the text files in game? Or is that way different than a save file.

i never looked at the game files, it's different to the save file :)
although, i will want the item ids+names, so that i can use it in the editor. if this user has found that already, cool, that is helpful.
but yeah there isn't much i can help with if they want to translate the game, any find i found won't be helpful.
(the names and ids will be in the game files, somewhere, in some form)

haha... I'm not dumping any of my games yet.

on chinese sites they are dumping games too, i didn't see it there though.

if you want to start early, play the demo.
and the game is usually very cheap on ebay.

but yeah in a week easy it should be up i guess by someone.
